    I didn't even know gazelle sold stuff. Good to know!

    Currently I'm using my 9930 until the z10 or at least aristo details come out. I'm a power user and the more productivity I can get out of it the better.

    Just got one in the mail yesterday from Ebay. Tired of the Android platform and loving this phone so far.

    bought one last week from verizon. Only issue it has is the trackpad seems to have a mind of its own and sometimes just scrolls all over the place :/

    Just left Android myself. For business nothing beats a BB. I'm glad to be back rocking a 9900 AT&T US of A. When the Q10 makes it way Stateside that will be my next phone.

    I'm bout to get one! Haven't been this excited for a phone since well.... My last bb. Coming from a iphone4s which was a awesome game boy but horrible phone. Gonna rock the 9900 till a really good bb10 device with keyboard comes along. Like the look of the q10 but wanna see more to come. Last BB was os6 bold 9700. So can't wait to get my mits on os7 with a touch screen and awesome bold keyboard! Always wanted to press my 9700 screen or 8900 for that matter and finally get to have it!

    Only thing I wanted to do before I buy it was to see a torch 9810 in person but my carrier dropped them. I know there basically the same phone with different form factor so no biggie.

    They have a store on ebay, I've gotten 2 BBs from them so far. Both have been excellent, and they are great sellers!

    I didn't mention it fore but how many will buy a 9930 now? Then again its about what suits your needs and price point too. Maybe the 9930 will become free.

    hey guys- So im picking up mine tomorrow, my bold 9900 (and its gonna be sick! lol) but one of the things i remember most fondly of my previous 8 yrs of BB usage before i went iPhone (ya i know) was the great customization not only concerning the OS but the physical device itself. My main devices were the OG pearl (first smartphone and always a place in my heart) my curve 8900 (still a stud in my book and know many POWER users to this day that are still running it) and my Bold 9700. Of these three phones I remember replacing casings, keyboards, bezels and even lights! my question is ... is this stuff still done (i hope!) and if so what websites are respectable for such parts, and hopefully have great customer service to boot?! I imagine that the days of such customization are done in respect to the Z10 but wanted to see if this was something still done with the Bold 9900 and if so dont be afraid to throw up some pics that will help me with inspiration or maybe some ideas! thanks guys and it feels great to be back!...soooooo good to be back.

    I've just ordered a 9900 after trying the Z10 for a couple of days and returning it - I love BBs but there are too many things missing from the Z10 for me to keep it. And I'm not convinced they'll be fixed by the time the Q is out. The final straw for me was 30 days email max and only one calendar. Helped along by no coloured notifications or custom profiles.

    Not sure about not having a track pad too.

    I am a Mac user and have an iPhone 5 but my daily driver is a 9900. Essentially BB Bold is convenient if one uses it mainly for phone and email/text etc.
    For any internet/display intensive things, I use the iPhone. I could switch to IP% alone but somehow 9900 is handier.
    I intensely researched Z10 on this and other sites, but cannot really convince myself to buy it, mainly because it does not seem to give me anything particularly superior to IP5.
    Besides, my IP5 is jailbroken and it has all nifty features. BB10's "flow" and that "flipping" keyboard etc are all available as jailbroken apps (I did not know those were available, and not BB originals).
    OTOH, I bought a 9790. Reason is because these little gems (small qwerties) would soon be a dying breed. I had to secure them before they were gone.
    Phones are becoming monsterous. I do not like large phones. iPhone 4S was an ideal size. If I have to go larger, I would rather use an iPad Mini (and I am usually never too far from a laptop or desktop anyway).

    Snap - same here. And I also have an iPad Mini. My reasoning is the same. Nothing beats a BB for quickly dealing with emails and calls etc.

    And that flashing light...........nothing to beat it. Evening an Android phone like the S3 with its notification like just doesn't seem the same.

    Last week I bought a 9900... Having upgraded from a torch 9800 did not want to wait for the Z10. I always hated touch screen keyboard.
