    Hello, I am looking to get back to blackberry after a two year hiatus with an iPhone and am looking to get the 9930 for verizon. I have read about a lot of issues Wih battery life and bricked phones. My question is should I be looking for a specifi version of the 9930? In other words was there a later release of the 9930 that did not have issues or was updated to correct the issues? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Well for Verizon, I think there is only one version of the 9930.

    I also think Verizon only has the black version. I am not sure about the white version coming to Verizon.

    The only other "later release" will be the first BBX phone but that does not have anything to do with the 9930. I'm just excited to see when the BBX phone actually does arrive in stores.

    battery life is an issue with the bb 9900 and 9930. What i have noticed is

    - light usage, battery goes for 14-16 hours
    - moderate usage, 8-10 hours
    - heavy usage, 6-8 hours

    Vz 9930-Heavy usage 18 hrs. Texting, streaming, 1 hour phone calls, map app and gps. I have never run out of battery. Phone is off the charger at 5 am, back on at 11 pm with at least 25% left. The only issue with the battery was the first day and first charge. It would only charge to 95% until I ran it into the red with flashing notifier. After that it charged faster and lasted almost twice as long. Like I said, no battery issue here!

    the stores will only have "one" version. whether is an older model from initial release or a brand new device, you may be able to tell from the outside of the box. it may have the build date on it.

    Not so true... mine has been off the charger for 28 hours and I'm sitting at 45% with moderate use during the 28 hours. Well except maybe 6 hours of no use due to sleeping.
