Came with a new type of charger - so small I thought part of it was missing - and the leather pouch. Will take my time and migrate tonight.

    Lovely jubbly.

    Give us a quick review when you're done migrating (and what apps didn't make the jump).

    Especially want to know different people's opinions on the supposedly TOO clicky keyboard.

    posting this in here as well to make it easy to search -

    Fyi for everyone on voda - i just unlocked mine - 1.99 off a chap of ebay.

    Slight change in unlock instructions from older bb's, if the standard sim card/mepd/mep2 doesnt work (i.e. no popup screen on mep2) then just stick the other non authorised sim card in the phone, turn it on and it will ask you automatically for an mep code.

    Hi

    For those of you who have got BB9900 from Vodafone can you please tell me, does the home screen have a wallpaper with the VF logo?

    Yes it does. There's no Vodafone branding on the handset itself, though.

    Got mine today on upgrade from Bold 9700. Very impressed. It is amazing how quickly I've adapted to having a touch screen available.
    A couple of questions for fellow Vodafone users.
    1. Does your handset offer the opportunity to change screen orientation? I can and it often reboots in 'landscape' mode and I have change it to portrait using the context menu on the home screen. This could be due to the video (see below) which seems to cause the orientation change on start up.
    2. Everytime I boot, I get a Vodafone video, but it shows in landscape mode and I can't seem to prevent it from showing - any ideas how to stop it?

    I picked mine up from my local Vodafone store today too

    I've had a little 'Play' with it but not had chance to load all from my 9700 onto it I've got all weekend now to do that though.
    I'm stunned at how thin it is! :O the back is awesome too!

    Mine has the VF splash screen but no branding on the device itself

    That's great, thanks!

    Just wondered because I've never had a problem with Hungarian made BB's before, but the Mexican made ones were garbage (eg Storm 1 screen issues and 9780 keypad stutter)

    Now regretting, why didn't I pre-order? Good to see so many people happy with 9900. What OS does it come loaded with on Voda UK?

    to be very clear, i dont think H+ will show on any UK model, as thats on HSDPA+ 14.4Mbps signal, considering vodafones main 3G speeds are 3.6Mbps and 7.2Mbps you probably wont see it. as for not seeing 3G, well signal is all down to location i guess.

    for example the town by me is 3G 3.6Mbps, and where i live is EDGE, so `it`ll hit xxx speed` is not really relevant, your speed is always the max of the cell tower your connected to.


    also, to the person that asked, 9900 Vodafone UK model comes with .296 installed

    I juest spoke to Voda upgrade team. The worst service ever. I am on 40 pound a month and wanted to get 9900 as upgrade. The said that I have to pay 160 pounds for BB. And new customer, according to they website, with the same tariff has to pay 130..... I would love to say goodbye to them, but so far only Voda offeres 12 month contract
