    I would like to switch from an iPhone XS to a bold 9900. I recently had the torch, but I had problems with the 3g and MMS. I heard that some versions of the bold are 4g, is anyone using a Bold 9900 (or other old bb with a keyboard) or have any suggestions?
    I mainly use my phone for calling, texting, YouTube and light web browsing; I don’t need much more

    AT&T is the only carrier in the US still supporting BIS, but I don't think they are still allowing non-LTE devices to be activated anymore. And it's almost certain that BIS will go away entirely at the end of the year, so I think you need a different plan.

    BBOS's time has come and gone.

    And, no, no BBOS phones have LTE (4G).

    If you want a keyboard phone, get a KEYone as they are pretty cheap these days. But if you had an iPhone XS... go for the KEY2.

    Pretty much.

    KEYone, KEY2 and KEY2 LE are the only really viable options for a PKB smartphone right now.

    Especially if you're coming from a blazing fast iPhone XS with a big AMOLED screen.

    I am using my BlackBerry Bold 9900 as an emergency phone. It is still looking premium and yes, I would recommend you sitting on it for at least 1 month. Believe me, you will use so much less internet that you never thought you would.

    Call and text are OK. Youtube and browsing are no good on the Bold 9900
