If you're on a subsidized phone, and your current phone still does the job I'd wait until one of the BB10 phones comes out.
Nothing is going to be more frustrating than drooling over the new BB10 phone(s), knowing you've got a year and a half left in your current contract.

if you is for Business stick with Bold 9900, if is for personal and fun stick for iphone. remember that if you are with Tmobile and you have trouble shooting with the iphone Tmobile won't help you for that device so be alert.

There is no way your 9810 had a nicer screen than an iPhone 4s - UNLESS - your 9810 was actually a newer iPhone 4S. Customisation points to the Blackberry, but only just.
I understand those are all your opinions, and you are welcome to them, but I find such remarks very unhelpful when I am purchasing a phone. You may think that the 9810 has a better screen than an iPhone, a 9900 has better image rendering on webpages, is a competent media device, but most sane people here will not.
A few lines up, another member put it simply:
Don't be duped, the 9900 isn't going to be your media buddy, but it will help you chat with your actual buddies. End of.

I speak my version of the truth...
I own the 9810. I've never owned the 9900. My 9810 media features are very good. My backlight doesn't go out if I play movies or watch video's. I'm assuming the 9900 is 'basically' the same. When I put media files on my 9810 I SIMPLY drag and drop the files into the folders. I don't have to sync with iTunes like an iPhone
In a carrier store I put my 9810 beside the iPhone 4S demo phone and I put them on the same web page (crackberry)...to my eyes the 9810 screen was better. It looked like a 'liquid graphics' display next to the iPhone
And customization, IMO, is a huge deal. I can tweak my phone to make it crack-useful

Yes, you have to jailbreak it, but that only takes about 5 minutes to do. Sometimes less than that.
Before the iOS 5.1 update I had mine tricked out. Wayyyy more than I was ever able to do with a blackberry.

If you know what you are doing and if you are comfortable with doing it! IMO you can not compare iPhone customization to a BB's! The BB's come stock - the iPhone you have to hack your phone and install from unauthorized sources and some apps will compromise the phones stability - I have to restart my iPhone about once every other day because my springboard crashes. It is not a big deal but I would not have to do that without jailbreak!
Don't get me wrong, I love my jailbreaked iPhone, but your statement is the equal of saying "My Honda Civic is faster than your BMW - if I tune my Honda".

I personally don't change a lot. Keyboard shortcuts, apps to make things faster and/or more convenient. Most of my apps make the phone handier
The phone shows-up as a usb drive. I can easily drag-and-drop files and make or arrange folders
Customizing the led is great, again very handy. Setting sound profiles for people I know is also great
Themes are cool

If you do a lot of messaging ( specifically texts ) I would say the 9900 is a no brainer....
...If you get a ton of emails, like to skype & video chat the BB can't compete with the iphone.
...If you are the sort that likes / needs apps then go with the iphone.
I am lucky enough to have both and the way it currently stands the iphone eats the blackberry alive....
....I get emails all the time I can't open on my 9930 because the file is too large.
....The same file opens just fine on the iphone and Droids.A reluctant iPhone 4s user who would STILL be a Blackberry user had RIM not messed it's own bed by putting a "Fisher Price Camera" in it's "flagship" Blackberry Bold 9930.
