    Replacement for my Torch. I went from the 9000 > 9700 > 9800. 9900 is the obvious next device! I still use my 9700 for work, 9800 for personal. I find the 9800 to be slow and this is the answer to my prayers.

    9900 is GSM, and the 9930 is CDMA

    No carrier has true LTE yet, so an LTE device would be pointless until they all do.

    HSPA+ is fast enough for now

    Honestly, I don't know what the difference is, so I'll make this a little more simple on myself. Which one will be available/run on UK networks?

    Thanks.

    All the time I thought that difference between 9900 and 9930 is one having GSM and other don't. But both have GSM band. But after reading this thread I am confused. So... is there any technical differences between the two?

    Is one is better than the other? Sorry for asking dumb questions, I am confused about the two versions.

    The 9900 is GSM only, the 9930 is CDMA primarily with GSM for international roaming.

    Both have the same specs, except for the different radios.

    If your carrier is GSM (TMO, AT&T etc) then the 9900 is for you.
    If your carrier is CDMA (Verizon, Sprint etc) then the 9930 is for you

    It's as simple as that

    One more Phil... you've said that the 9930 is CDMA with GSM... then does this mean that anyone can use 9930 even if their carrier is GSM only? Thanks again.

    You could if you were in Europe, but you wouldn't get HSPA+ in the US.

    The 9930 is only Dual-Band HSPA+ which is fine for Europe, compared to the Tri-Band 9900 needed for HSPA+ in the States.

    I don't know if I'd go that far, but this phone would've had me no longer drooling for my iPhone if it had come out sooner!

    Looks like the Crackberry addicts are about to finally be rewarded for their patience, this looks pretty sweet!
