So, tonight I was on my phone giving discharge instructions to my nurses for a patient. As I was getting into my car, the bluetooth kicked in and my 9930 decided to shut off and refuse to turn back on. Finally, after 6 battery pulls and 20 minutes of it being stuck on the BlackBerry loading screen, it decides to turn back on. Luckily, my nurses aren't idiots and got the job done. Unluckily, I'm stuck with a stupid "smartphone" that has brought me nothing but frustrations. I just don't see the love affair that people have with BB. I loved my old Curve, but this Bold is nowhere near a step forward.
Long story short. Would anyone like to trade a Galaxy Nexus for a Verizon 9930 plus cash? I'd like to get back on Android. An OS that actually knows how to not be stupid.

don't do it.. I have both.. if u r into messaging and being connected.. don't do it. display is a joke. still not readable in normal daylight and so on.. bat power even worse than 9900, no unified inbox, programs crash, slow, stuttering animations and so on..

Good luck. I don't know why anyone would consider trading what is arguably the best Android phone on the market, for (ugh) a BB.A cigar is man's opportunity to reflect on the past, and dream about the future.

Buy one off contract and sell your BB on ebay or craigslist, I am sure you will find a sucker out there willing to buy it. 1SaleADay has a 16GB Unlocked Note for $549 today, otherwise you should be able to get a Nexus for around that price.

The phone is not slow at all. There is no lag, no hiccups. The animations are not slow either, but you can turn those off anyway.
Sounds to me like you had no clue what you are doing with Android or you are just making up a line of BS. There are people here who actually own this device and reviews all over the internet that prove most of what you say wrong.
The 9900 is not in the same league as the Galaxy Nexus. The 9900 is in the same league as phones from 2010.

I used to enjoy the unified inbox when I had a blackberry for several years. I now prefer to have my accounts separate.

So I went back to my LG Revolution. Even this mid range under powered Android device is better than the blackberry flagship.
I'm waiting for the next big Android on Verizon.

even the so called best blackberry on the market has no redeeming qualities except if you're in India or some other third world country. I seriously doubt anyone would give up an android device for a blackberry, that's like taking 10 steps back.
