Blackberry Bold 9900- My Last Blackberry
I have been a loyal Blackberry user for seven plus years. I usually upgrade to newer models every other 18-24 months. I currently have a Blackberry Bold 9900, which I've had for six months. Unfortunately, it is the worst Blackberry I've ever owned. Here are some of the issues I have experienced:
If I type a long e-mail, the device will freeze up and restart itself-- and all my typing is lost. To circumvent this, I have to type a few lines, save the e-mail as a draft, type more, save again, etc. A cumbersome waste of time.
The battery life is horrific. My battery is usually completely drained after a normal 8-10 hour workday. My older devices could last 24+ hours between charges.
The screen seems less durable, possibly because it is a new touch screen. Durability was never an issue with previous devices. The screen on my Bold 9900 cracked after a short drop of less than three feet.
Looks like I'll have to join the 21st century and get an iPhone.
