    Yes it seems memory and the speed of the 9000 is the main differences. If I had never used a 9900 I wouldn't have noticed so much. As for the battery, I had 75% left after two days of light use.

    Update on the genuine battery I bought off ebay. After opening it from the packaging it seemed lighter in weight, longer and wider than my original. It wouldn't fit in my 9000 either and didn't want to force it. It seems like the seller was trying to pull a fast one as I messaged him and he said sorry and that he'd send another out ASAP. The listing on ebay stressed that it was a genuine BlackBerry battery :s

    I've looked at those too haha.

    Brand new ones have sold for in the 40's here in the UK on ebay which isn't bad. At this point I must focus on BB10 though

    They are pretty nice speakers. It may be me but I think it sounds better with earphones too.

    You should go for it.

    now that you mentioned it, i noticed that too. i thought the 9900 was the first Bold series to feature great sound quality. now i think both are at par.

    i still think the 9000 sounds clearer when playing music, but perhaps not as loud. Even ringing tones as well. But overall, still loving it. I just got a black bezel for my 9000. haha. The 9000 gave me my very first BB experience, before I had been an iphone user for a couple of year, before deciding to get a 9000 due to work requirement. But I got hooked by its efficiency within weeks. Soon after I got a 9900 when it came out. Followed by a bunch of other BB as well. The loudest speaker I've heard on a phone i think goes to the Storm 9500 I had briefly. hahaha. Yes, a Storm.

    I wonder if anyone is buying the first Storm to use, since it is significant in the way that it was RIM's first venture into the touch screen market. Which should make it a nice comparison to the first full touch BB phone using the BB10 platform. hahahaha.

    Sadly I do not have a decent camera at the moment so do bear with me. But I didn't actually buy a black bezel. I bought this bold 9000 only because it was really cheap. It wasn't in great condition, with peeling on the bezel from drops, and peeling on the frets on the keyboard. The left and right convenience keys are both dead, while the volume down buttons requires additional pressure to work. Other than that, everything else was working fine.

    Finally got a brand new 9000 ! (pics)-snapshot_20130112.jpeg

    So i took it apart and gave the bezel a new look, by sanding the silver coating out. With a combination of rough and fine sand paper, plus a bit of polish, I was able to achieve a black bezel with a sort of wooden texture. Which is quite a nice combination to the leather batter cover. Then i also scrapped the chrome on the frets of the keyboard out as well to achieve an almost all black look.

    Then the light on the right side of the navigation buttons are out too, meaning no back lighting on the back and end call key. So I just took out the left side as well, giving it a more uniformed look. Contemplated on buying a black trackpad, but decided against it. White trackpad looks nicer in the dark imo. hahaha.

    Thanks for pics, even though you didn't have a good camera. Looks really awesome.

    I think ill either buy a black bezel or follow your lead with mine. Although right now I gave up on mine because I can't get bis service live when on cell reception through tmobile. Oh and the track wheel won't scroll down..

    So I reverted back to android until I get the bis issue fixed and clean the track wheel. Maybe next weekend.. after vacay.. although then it will almost be bb10 time (can't wait!)

    The black bezel completely tranforms your 9000. It looks very stealthy

    Thanks for sharing the pics

    The good thing about the older bolds are that they are pretty easy to take apart. so almost anything can be changed. hahaha.

    Default Still loving my almost 4 years 9000!

    Hello,

    I am fairly new here and this is my first post. I am really enjoying this topic of the bold 9000 and my username pretty much sums it all. I have had my bold 9000 since 21st April 2009 (3.5 years precisely) and still use it as my daily phone. I am not prepared to swap it for another and even if I do decide to go for the 9900 at a later date, I will still keep the 9000 for future classic. The only problem I have had so far with the 9000 is the side volume button which stopped working all of a sudden. Basically, it does not adjust volume anymore and I have read somewhere on a forum that this issue was particular with this model of Blackberry. Apart from that, the phone is still as strong as the first day I purchased it despite the fact that I am still running the old software v4.6. Since the phone is ageing, I have decided to change the Benzel/Battery cover/keypad/trackball just to rejuvenate the look because it has suffered from severe scratches.

    I have looked on ebay and seen couple of kits but the problem is that they are too cheap to be real (RIM) stuff. Can anyone confirm is this one is actually the OEM BB stuff. For a phone of this calibre, I would not like to buy a cheap Chinese knock-off. If this is not the real deal, can anyone point me to a reputable seller who sells genuine OEM BB parts? Link below: HOUSING SET FOR BLACKBERRY BOLD 9000 BEZEL/BATTERYCOVER/KEYPAD/TRACKBALL | eBay. Can anyone advice me on the best cost effective way to repair the redundant side volume button of my 9000.

    Thanks!

    Hey chaps

    It's been a long time since I've come back to this thread and my 9000.

    I decided to have a play with my 9000 a while ago and found it wouldn't turn on. It has a black screen at all times with 1 led followed by 4 fast leds.

    It wont connect to...
    BlackBerry desktop manager
    BBSAK
    Loader exe
    Or JLcmdr

    I'm pretty sure the usb socket isn't damaged as its a brand new phone that has hardly been used as you can see in the pics.

    Has anyone got any suggestions as to what may be going wrong & what I could try next?

    Been there, did you charged it ? I had a similar problem and just left the thing plugged for a long while and it came back to life. It's funny how things are, I currently own an iPhone 4 and a Galaxy as well and my favorite still the good old 9000 ! I'm currently selling them all but the Bold 9000, call me old fashion and whatnot but the simplicity and real 'just messaging' features still are hard to match, even by today's standards. Good luck with your deal....

    Oooooo very nice phone,

    I think 9000, 9900 and Q10 are the best phones blackberry ever made. I might add the z10 to that list too .

    Yeah I charged it. I charged the battery in & out of the phone and still no luck. It seems the flashing light sequence indicates it has a software problem. I asked a fellow in a local independent phone shop about it. He seems confident that he will be able to get it up & running again.

    Cool Beans. I've been thinking about picking up a 9000 just for kicks. I have a pile of old BlackBerry's. Its fun to switch off once in a while.
