    In another very similar thread.. someone pointed out it would make a cheap target.

    Just depends on how badly you want to use it.... some out there still find it an acceptable smartphone, some use it for beside alarm, streaming player.

    It can be... at least if you use the web versions in most cases - as I'm not sure what social media apps work on BBOS.

    But if you have a modern smartphone with the apps and a PKB or a slab with predictive text... not sure how practical keeping the 9900 really is.

    Spend money on.... So you don't own this 9000, your thinking of buying it and then finding a use for it?

    If that's the case, use the KEYone.

    I think that's up to you on how you spend your money. Got cash burning a whole in your pocket? Go for it.

    I can think of a whole lot of other things I'd rather spend my extra money on... but that's just me.

    It's use is limited only by what you're willing to put into it. And even with that, there's not a lot that can be put into it. Also depends on if you plan to use it as an actual phone - which should work with the right SIM size.

    If you just wanna buy it... I can't tell you what to do. Many here love collecting BlackBerries, and find much joy in ownership, without using them.

    Think there are some 3rd party solutions... there is a whole tread about using a BBOS without BIS here.

    It might be a hobby which can be fun... or a chore.

    Forget it, if you want an older Berry for the sake of having one, might as well have one that has SOME functionality in 2019, so get a cheap Classic

    He has the KEYone for functionality...

    Why get the imitation Classic, when he can get the real thing?

    Is there a way in which I can download apps for my Bold 9000? I recently got one for a very cheap price and thought of it as a collection of some sort. But I found it interesting in a way to use. Are there 3rd party websites I could download games and apps from?

    In you other thread I sent you a link to someone that kinda keeps things current.

    Back in the day there were lots of sites hosting apps for BBOS, but like the platform those sites have faded.

    JAR/COD/JAD/DM/ALX files are harder to find, and it's harder to trust where you are getting them. And those files were always compatible with different versions of BBOS...

    If you need a specific App... you might try asking for help with it.
