    I want a good, high-end phone. I can't afford one, but thanks to eBay I might have a chance of getting one for around 125. This phone is seriously amazing and I might get it. But I'm also attracted to the 9700... which one do you think is bestest?

    i went from the 9700 to the 9900 and its like a change from dos to windows 7. If you can, get the 9900. When i used the 9700 after 9900 it felt, well, weird.

    You can't compare those 2 phones. Bold 9700 is a good phone but that's it... Bold 9900 is AMAZING. I had both, and honesltly, I was loving 9700 only because it was a blackberry. The 9900 is so much better...

    The 9900 series bold is a great device and by far the best physical keyboard to date. It might not out sell android and apple but when it does the majority is very happy with it. Just the size and feel sold me even with the lack of app support early on.

    Get the 9900.

    I have used both and the 9900 is miles above the 9700.

    same here i would rather go for the latest models instead of the old ones, if you can afford it just do it.
    i assume you already know the pro's and con's of each device's. if so, then you are pretty ok to make your own desicion.

    I've owned both, and for that money I would get the 9900. Much faster, more powerful processor, etc. The only downside is shorter battery life.
    When I actually get around to it, I will download the latest 7.1 leak as I've heard it addresses the battery issue.

    Love my 9700, but if given a choice I would definitely go with the 9900.

    9900, hands down. I still have my 9700...I have it kicking around...use it for Texas Hold'em King 2, and as a second backup alarm clock. It's also on WiFi, so I'll use it sometimes to read the paper and whatnot, so I save the battery on my 9900. But when it comes to a primary device, the 9900 is just plain nicer, and easier to use to do more on. The 9700 just feels smaller and cramped compared to the 9900. I like the larger size...plus the 9900 takes a 32 gig card over the 16 gig capacity of the 97.

    I would go with 9900 because it has very few issues compared to 9700 either you have to stay in OS 5 or go to OS 6 with a lot of memory leaks. In addition my 9700 also used to stuck in middle of typing an email due to low memory.

    Go with the 9900 and make sure you have a good quality one during the first week or so because RIM is having huge problems with quality control for Bold 99xx phones.

    Its like comparing apples with oranges . there is a day night difference between the two.

    i've used 9700-9780-9810-9790 and finally 9900 ... trust me there is no comparison , 9900 is miles ahead of any of these phone except camera which takes quite average snaps . but one dont buy a BB phone for camera right?

    Also After 7.1 update i am getting amazing battery life .

    I went from 9700 to 9900. The 9700 is a good phone but damn the 9900 is off the charts!

    9700 is a great phone for basic functions like bbm/talk/text and email with a some apps. The battery will last you days.

    The 9900 is a beast! Awesome keyboard, beautiful screen and touchscreen, fast browser but battery life is laughable compared to the 9700. Anyone here that tells you otherwise is lying.
