5.0 out of 5 stars Best of both worlds, 13 Dec 2011
This review is from: Blackberry Bold 9900 Sim Free Mobile Phone-Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
It is so good to back on a BlackBerry after two years on an iPhone. This is the best of both worlds: fast processor, reliable email, good signal, reasonable battery life, touchscreen and qwerty. Despite so much bad press, RIM has done a great job with this device and it is light years ahead of my old Curve 8300, especially things like reading PDFs and editing Word docs. It just, as they say, works. I have teamed it up with a PlayBook they work very nicely together.

But quality control isn't great. My first one was DOA, and sat on my desk connected to the charger doing nothing but displaying the "invalid battery" icon, even though the battery that I inserted was of course the one that came in the box. Apparently this is a known issue.

This one also has the "issue" that some people are complaining about: the squeaky trackpad! I hadn't really noticed it until I read it on a forum and thought "yeh, I suppose mine squeaks too". I solved it with a little Vaseline around the trackpad. Don't return yours without trying this first as it isn't really a fault.
