Works every time for me !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BlackBerry Charging Pod for Bold 9900 - Black (Accessory)
I have had the charging dock for the BB 9700 for over a year and it worked perfectly. This dock for the BB 9900 also works well - just takes an extra second to ensure it is in the dock properly that's all. The dock is shallower than the 9700 but works fine.
A plus is that the 9900 supplied mains lead also doubles as the USB lead so you need to disconnect if from the mains power plug for use with a PC/laptop. However the 9900 charging dock comes with its own mains lead ( unlike the 9700) so the original lead supplied with the phone can be reserved purely for USB connection.
Once in the dock the analogue clock is displayed ( as in the 9700) The bottom of the dock has a non-slip surface - unlike the back of the 9900 - so the phone is probably safer in the dock.
Incidentally the charging contacts on the 9900 are on the bottom of the phone unlike the 9700 which are on the side at the bottom but it seems to make no difference - just that you can't see them in product photos unlike the 9700 where they are clearly visible.
UPDATE- had this for over 3 months and works fine - soon got into the habit of how it docks.
