Bold 9930

I switched from BlackBerry 10 to BlackBerry 7 and survived!

As I'm sure most of you already know, last weekend Kevin, James and I headed to Montreal to check out the Canadian Grand Prix — and we had an amazing time. I drove up from New Jersey with a friend of mine, but it wasn't until the day before that it dawned on me that I wouldn't have any phone...

Lit Up 9900 Trackpad

I hope the BlackBerry Classic's trackpad lights up and powers down like it does on the Bold 9900

Or more specifically, I hope like the BlackBerry Bold 9900, there is a ring or design element around the BlackBerry Classic's trackpad that lights up for notifications, and is last to turn off when the screen / keyboard backlighting powers down. I had this realization when I was out for dinner...

The real reason My Cousin Vinny downgraded from the BlackBerry Z10 to a Bold 9900 and is waiting on the Classic...

"Because I can use it way better while driving" Ok, Ok. Now before you go ripping Vinny apart in the comments, let me tell the full story here. My cousin Vinny isn't Joe Pesci. He's actually the guy below. And Vinny isn't technically my cousin. In reality, he's my fiancée's godmother's...

Have you ever tried using your old BlackBerry 7 phone after upgrading to BlackBerry 10?

As you can likely guess from the title of this article, yesterday I downgraded from BlackBerry 10 to BlackBerry 7. If you follow me on Instagram or BBM Channels (C00010BC5), you already know the reason. Whenever the weather gets warm, I always get the itch to rock a white phone, and looking...

The best BlackBerry you can buy right now

Let's face it. The selection of BlackBerry devices isn't huge in comparison to the likes of Android -- but there are still a few different options depending on your needs.

Bold 9900 Keyboard

CrackBerry Asks: Do you use the U key shortcuts on your QWERTY BlackBerry?

One of the great things about having a physical keyboard on your BlackBerry is the ability to use keyboard shortcuts for quick navigation. Having my BlackBerry Z10 now I must say that I do miss keyboard shortcuts, but I'll totally deal with it. That being said - I still can't wait to get my hands...

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the first BlackBerry to run on a processor faster than 1 GHz, use a near-field communications antenna, enable mobile hotspot, and raised the bar for BlackBerry display resolution. Most importantly of all, the Bold 9900 was the flagship for the BlackBerry 7 operating system launch, which proliferated through new devices through the rest of the year. Though the design is very much in step with previous BlackBerry devices, it does feature a few notable highlights, including a metal band around the outside and a glass weave rear cover. It was announced May 2, 2011, and initially released August 9, 2011. The 9900 was preceded by the Bold 9700 and 9000 series, and was followed up by the BlackBerry Q10. A CDMA variant, the BlackBerry Bold 9930, was also released.
