    After ditching the iPhone 5 due to poor battery life and a stale UI, I jumped to the Z10 but have not enjoyed it so far.

    Even though the 9900 is somewhat old at this point and the Q10 is on the horizon, is the 9900 worth buying as a holdover until the Q10?

    How is the battery life on current firmware and are there any good deals on the device right now? Also, if I were to buy one unlocked, what do I need to look for to make sure that it will work on ATT 4G?

    Thank you.

    If your expecting 4g on a 9900, think again. Still a great phone though.

    I guess I should have said "4G" as in AT&T HSPA+ (not LTE).

    Your best bet is to use your Z10 until the Q10 comes out, which is not that far away. BB10 with OS10 (QNX) is awesome and worth the wait. I have a 9900 and would upgrade with a heartbeat if it were not for my contract (not willing to pay the high upgradge fees). Don't get me wrong, the 9900 is a good phone, but I think the Q10 will be another amazing BB10 device.

    The 9900 was a very awesome phone.. there were some issues, but overall very very reliable and efficient.. battery life was atleast 8 hours heavy usage and with 2 batteries, youd get 16... i still say worth it if you arent looking for apps

    How is Spotify on BB OS7?

    The only app I'm really missing on Z10 is Spotify.

    How does this phone from 2011 still have the same "no commitment" price from AT&T as the Z10?????

    I've noticed this with many carries I believe its done to make the New BB10's look more appealing.
