    Take a look at this fine thread:

    9900 Resurgence of popularity - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    Thanks to discovering this and similar threads on the CB Forums, I have been reminded how wonderfully unique the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 was and still is.

    It was released 5 years ago, yet there still remains a loyal, enthusiastic core of users and fans who see this incredible device for what it is: the epitom� of mobile communication and efficiency, the quintessential BlackBerry device, an iconic and legendary handset.

    Like our devoted Palm Pre kindred who still proudly wield their preferred device, as long as BlackBerry keeps its BIS servers running - and likely even after it stops - you will find BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 enthusiasts like us using, discussing, and rediscovering our favorite phones even today.

    This thread is dedicated to those who still dare to be Bold.

    I've used a 9930 as my daily driver as recently as 2015.

    I managed to convince myself I was done with legacy BlackBerry devices forever and sold it.

    But lingering regret, combined with the discovery of some enthusiastic 9900/9930 threads on the CB Forums, reminded me that this brilliant little phone - 5 years on - can still do a few things no other can.

    This past weekend I ordered a new sealed-in-box 9930, 3 OEM charging pods, and 2 spare batteries - all for under $130.

    Here in this thread, in the BBM Channel (C003013C8), in the BBM Group (PM me for invite) and in the forthcoming blog, I intend to meticulously detail my journey back to the Land of the Bold and share ongoing discoveries, tips, tricks, etc. along the way.

    Thanks for joining me!

    Pretty cool stuff. When Channels came out that was about the time I got into iPhones so I never did much with them. I might have some questions.

    It came with a belt clip holster so I'll probably use that, but I won't put a case on it because I plan to use OEM charging pods.

    I'm kind of in the same boat, I hate removing the Blackberry soft gel skin because it is on the pod all night by the bed. In the day I am pretty active over cement and many potential dangers if I drop it so I just put up with slipping it into the Gel.

    If I drop it when I have a case, I probably won't forgive myself. It won't fit in the holster with the case, shame.
