POLL: How many of you had experienced problems with BB 9900?
Mine has been going strong for a year, never had any serious problem, not even a minor problem (such as it switching off etc) with very heavy use.

if i've ever had any problems with my 9900, they've been external rather than internal. i know what i'm doing when it comes to loading software etc so if i did have a problem in this area i would (hopefully, but lots of help available on here anyway) know what to do. every phone out there and every other customer's gonna have a problem. it's just technology.PROUD Mummy, loving girlfriend. turtle fanatic

I admittedly had a lot of issues when it first came out (summer 2011) with it being slow, crashing, burning through the battery that I would need to switch it by early afternoon. It's the reason I sold it and jumped shipped and bought myself a Galaxy S2. However, 4 months later I was missing it so I bought another one found that since January 2012, it has been a great phone. I also do a full wipe and install every new official OS that gets released and I have to say it is loads better now. Fast boot time (about 1 minute or a bit less which is great for a BB), I get two days now before I have to charge it (based on how I use the phone).
The only disappointments is that even though I baby the phone, I find it looking more worn out than my other BB's... things like the carrier logo being almost worn off, scuff marks on the battery door, small nicks in the frame. My stuff usually looks like new even if it is a year later. As this is just nitpicking really, I have been really happy with it and I think I will miss it if I get a Z10.
In terms of other hardware issues I have heard about, my friend just got a 9900 through work and he has an issue that the phone will crash when taking a picture. I checked this out online which seems to be an issue if you have the geo location enabled in the camera. I have never had that issue before and I also don't know what OS version he is using but that is the only real hardware/software issue I've heard of in my circle of users.
Shame about your experience. That would drive me bonkers. If a OS wipe and reinstall doesn't fix it, maybe try a warranty exchange and try another unit.-------------------------------------------

- Optional, but not needed.
Didn't have much issues at all, almost none. Minor things only with apps, but overall, none.Flamers, don't even try, I have my waterhose ready
GNU/Linux distros of choice: Ubuntu, Mint (or anything based on debian that's still geared towards beginners and isn't too bloated).
