    I don't know if RIM reads crackberry, but wouldn't it be nice for them to have single thread (not necessarily have to be this) wherein they can find all the software and hardware bugs the users have found so that they can fix it in their next software and firmware update?

    No emotions. No hating. Just a list.

    I don't know.. Bad idea? Hope not.

    The faster they know the problems, the faster they could release software and firmware updates. Hopefully they haven't all jumped ship yet to QNX.

    Link to problems people have experienced.

    Mine is fine and have nothing to complain about. Will not be updating the OS for a while.

    Well yes one thing. Maybe the could add "Lock Screen" to the list for the side convience button choices.

    I hope RIM reads this thread.

    1. I'd say battery life, this phone resembles an android more like a blackberry.
    2. No more re-booting after deleting an app( it's 2011.)
    3. Even though i see full bars, it seems like the phone has problems communicating with the network and it takes forever to send texts, bbms, and loading up websites.

    Well everyone wanted supercharged phones, thats what you get.
    Like an iPhone 4 user said sometime when battery life came up "if you want to drive a Ferrari, then expect to make more stops at the gas station".
    RIM was staying behind the curve on processors because they knew that batteries have not come up to the level of fast processors.
    But people tanked their stock, so they gave what the people wanted.
    By the way I love my shiny new 9900.

    I guess they don't have this option because there is already a dedicated button for this. Would be nice if both were convenience keys instead though so the user had the choice.

    When I reboot 9900, it always resets wallapaper to carrier default and sets to vibrate mode. I never had this problem before and don't know what's going on.

    i can consistently get the cursor to keep scrolling by itself by slightly touching the bottom of the sreen when i start scrolling downwards on the trackpad. Whats weird is that it usually goes left on its own.

    Not sure if this is poor software or hardware.

    I believe the biggest bug is the devices ability to download popalar software and I know its the developers that have to make the change but rim needs to speed this up.

    In the Contacts application, contacts are listed sorted by firstname then lastname:

    Anna Smith
    John Smith
    John Doe

    If you change the order to lastname then firstname, they will display lastname, firstname but the the sort order will be unchanged:

    Smith, Anna
    Smith, John
    Doe, John

    After a reboot / battery pull, the problem is fixed:

    Doe, John
    Smith, Anna
    Smith, John

    I know it's a minor one, but I thought I'd mention it.

    I am very tempted to get a 9930 next week but all these issues have me second guessing! For people that have had this device for 2-4 weeks, how is the paint on the kb holding up. Was a big issue with the 9650.......

    You are hearing problems that 1% of Bold 9930 owners are having.. Don't make that be the factor that keeps you from buying it. People who got perfect devices obviously aren't all going to make threads saying "GOT A PERFECT DEVICE NO FLAWS" only the people who get problems are going to post a thread about it so don't take it the wrong way.

    And the paint seems to be holding up great IMO I don't think it'll be a problem.

    What makes you think it's that low of a percentage? Has anyone gone to the trouble of counting what percentage of bug-posters seem to have registered CB accounts just to report a problem? Sure CB readers represent a very small % of BB users overall, but you can't discount the possibility that the problems reported here represent 9900/9930 users as a whole. Many of the people agreeing with bug issues are established CB posters. What you also have to realize is that most people who experience bugs don't post them on forums - they either call their service provider or put up with them. I know of loads of people who take a "well it kinda screws up here and there but hey" attitude to their phones.

    The phone is very buggy across the stock OS, recent upgrade and the 340 leak.

    Speaker when on Loud mode is so terrible it sounds like a dying cat.

    This is such a shame. I'm tempted to go back to the 9700

    There is nothing groundbreaking about the 9900.

    No ground breaking apps.

    The browser is pretty much the same.

    I gotta LoL @ people that think this phone is Jesus.

    Its not.

    Its a phone. Pain and simple.

    I've been through a replacement and tons of time trying the 3 different OS available.

    Its buggy.

    The damn convienence key is too small, the volume keys cannot be accessed by feel with a skin on, way way too small and flush.

    I dunno man, hate to sound negative but the truth hurts.

    The only issue I have is bbm freezes a bit sometimes. I'll start typing and nothing happens. Then the letters starts appearing. I have the latest version of BBM. Other than that, everything else is perfect. No trackpad or back button issues. For those who are experiencing all the issues the OP listed, you guys have a dud. It appears that most of these issues are coming from the 9930 users. Partially could be an OS issue.

    If these were really pervasive problems ppl would be all over it like the stuttering keys on the 9780, bad slider on the 9800 or wobbly trackpad on the 9700. I don't see that numbers reporting issues as occured when those devices were released.
