    You can select 'Mobile' or 'Mobile Lite' versions of the CB website if trying access on a phone. That can help make for a lighter, faster experience. Personally, I find the CB website one of the worst to visit on the BB browser (even with BB10), its far too content rich, with numerous shades blocking the viewing experience – somewhat ironic when you think about it.

    I routinely use the Tapatalk app to interact with the CB forums on my 9900. The CB forum app (built on an older version of Tapatalk) became rather troublesome, a couple months back, and started to lockup my 9900. I believe somebody else here experienced similar problems.
    Tapatalk v.1.4.7.9 seems very reliable on my 9900
    I've never tried the Tapatalk app because the CB app has worked for me better than ever. Last year I had issues where CB app would log me out several times but this hasn't happened in months on the 9900. It's very fast. The browser version is a little slower but actually not too bad on mine. But certainly all of the options would be probably more so on the browser version for crack. But I wonder CollinsCity is aware you can unsubscribe by clicking the dotted BB button on the thread and then sliding over to subscribe and subscribe. I am subscribed to three forums, 9900, general and keyone and for trying to unsubscribe from the actual forms and not just one particular thread, I have not tried the forum UNsubscription.

    Miracles never cease. Opera Mini on 9930 is back to good on CB! I've changed NOthng. Just tried it, after a week of non-function, and here I am. Go figure. Perplexing but glad to have it back. Lack of explanation drives me NUTS, tho. Lol.

    Copy/Paste is a wonderful thing! LOL

    Steve, K4SQI
    YES! Especially on our trackpad 9900s! Truly wonderful to PRECISELY place pointer with trackpad, press "shift" once, then PRECISELY and quickly highlight desired text by scrolling trackpad. Up/down for entire lines. Left/right for a precise letter. Menu key then pops up copy-cut-paste options.

    Or, depending on app, click trackpad to pop up editing options... All in one fluid motion. Most apps will select entire word by simply placing pointer some where on word and long press trackpad.

    ALL of this in single hand with single thumb!

    Classic also mimics much of this... Impressively smooth with latest OS but no match for fluidity of our 99s. SOMEone at BB clearly devoted a labor of love perfecting 9900 UI.

    That's something I LOVE about my Passport clock "bedside mode:" The digits go red. Is "bedside mode," with user-selectable notifications (all off, phone only) too much to ask for..? In the Blandroid world, it seems that way.
    You can do that with Do Not Disturb. It has the following options:

    - Priority only - messages and/or calls from favourite contacts, or all contacts
    - Alarms only
    - Total Silence

    Side note: it looks like my legacy iPhone 5c will have support killed sooner than I thought… Still I guess I shouldn't complain about getting three years out of it.

    It just sucks that a perfectly good device will not get updates when everything works perfectly, so now the 5C will know what the 9900 feels like.

    Also NO ONE knows why the critical update (patches around 100 malware and threats) was offered for a few hours and then mysteriously pulled for legacy.

    Hmm... I've been playing with my D60 but have not found a way to coax it to automatically put itself into anything resembling "bedside mode" when in charge pod... Which is NOT even Qi. Compared with our 99's experience driven refinement, the whole thing feels amateurish, to me. Even BBOS4.2 could automatically put itself into "bedside mode" when set into a charge pod, as I recall. What am I missing?

    No updates, but the phone will still work. Our 9900s haven't seen an update in years.

    The problem with iOS updates, from my perspective, is that the OS gets heavier every time (and improved, which is a good thing), and your older device slows down more and more with each update.

    My wife's 4s was really slow -- a lot of lag -- after its final update. Like BB10, you can't go back to earlier versions of the OS after you've updated. Well, it's almost the same problem. You can save these things called SHSH blobs before you update, and then you can go back to an earlier iOS version, but I didn't know that at the time. With her new phone, I'll be saving the blobs.

    Oh.. you meant automatically... I think that's possible only on rooted droids.

    It's also ironic (and somewhat pathetic) how successful Samsung phones became when all they did (and currently do) is copy Iphone innovations. Now I read how Sammy phones are going to feature "Peek and Pop" or what apple called "3D touch." A blatant rip off from Apple innovation. Funny how if I were to ever get an Android device it would NEVER be a Samsung for this and a few other reasons, namely updates supposedly taking months even when there are known threats with malware and Apple patches usually by the next week, or even the next day!

    Also strange that Blackberry never got successful with Android devices even though in my opinion, the Blackberry Androids have more interesting features, like the ability to be alerted if someone is using your camera to watch you, etc. You would think people might give a crap about important things such as this but alas.

    I've been using android since the T-Mobile G1 was released. I've owned quite a few android devices & still do. I've done the whole compile "optimized" kernels, ROMS, etc, etc. Back in the old android 1.x, 2.x it was a lot of fun and you really could get quite bit of a performance boost w/ some of the different linux patches compared to the stock kernels that came from say HTC, Motorola, etc. In fact, I still have a Motorola CliqXT around here that has a stock kernel w/ patches I submitted to Motorola for the old Cliq, CliqXT, & Backflip. LOL. You can find the old threads on XDA if you like. After Android 2,x, it all started to look/feel the same. But I do agree, I like what BlackBerry has done with Android so far. They haven't added all the Bloat like Samsung has. I'd buy an BlackBerry Android device every time compared to a Samsung. Some of the HTC and Google Phones have been great devices as well. Just my $0.02. Take care.

    It's a shame devices get slower due to updates, but I think it's normal. As things move forward in the digital era, our most used device, the phone, has to keep up. People want new functionality and also want new things because we get bored easily. Phones are released for the "now" to keep them affordable so the hardware isn't meant to properly support updates past a couple of years.

    Fortunately, mobile hardware progressed significantly and OSes are also increasingly resource efficient. From my experience, iOS and Androids don't degrade performance as much as they used to.

    LOL. Actually I bet I can. When I'm not working on Friday nights, I like to check into the Friday night Canadian D-Star Nets via Ham Radio. It's a great net and there's a great group of people who participate in the net from all over the world. Some of the regulars of the net check in to our NC D-Star net on Tuesday nights. It's one of great things of Ham Radio is being able to talk around the world to some one like they're in the same room as you. I've been talking around the world since I was 7. Even back then, I had a weekly schedule w/ some older friends from Canada & Australia. Take care.
