    Hi everyone,

    i'm new here and never owned a BB before.

    So i was wondering if i have to wait for new devices or buy a BB 9900 now ?
    Any tips please ? Thanks in advance !

    I am located in Belgium.

    Greetz,

    Christoph.

    You should wait for a new device, I'm using the Bold 9900, and never had problems with it, just some few minor issues but got it all fixed, its an amazing phone, but recommend you wait.

    btw if you are in a climate that's very hot, some touch screens have the problem of getting stuck.#just a small tip

    i love 9900. i got 9810 but i wish i bought 9900. this phone looks so professional. i am drooling each time i see it. i guess it all comes down to your budget. i would get it used and sell it later If you find os10 more desirable.

    Thanks Bitek and loudnclear for the replies.

    BB10 is indeed the way to go.
    Here is Belgium prices for a new 9900 are astronomical (569 euros)
    Even second hand stil around 400 euros.

    I may go for a second hand one
    Not sure what to do ...

    Every year you will be faced with making the choice to enjoy a product now or wait for the next one. I am very happy I jumped on the Bold 9930.
    The keyboard is the most seductive feature on the device. Yes, the screen is nice and it looks good and all the blah, blah typical goodies you expect from a BlackBerry but the keyboard... wow.
    If you like the Bold just get it. You will be happy with this awesome guy today and not hope you like the maybe next thing.

    Your hope is in vein

    BBOS7 Devices Will NOT get BB10


    That said, your choice to buy now and get a 9900, or wait till BB10 comes out and buy it is completely dependent on your needs.

    if you don't need a new phone and can live with what you have wait it out, but if you are thinking you really need a new phone, we have no idea what BB10 will bring, so buy the 9900 now, and try and sell it once BB10 comes out if you really want to make the upgrade.

    Thanks deRusett for the info !

    Really appreciate it

    I might try a 9790 or 9900 second hand just to get the feel of a BB and then buy aa BB10 device when they come out.

    I have both the 9900 and the 9790

    I WISH the 9790 had the same materials as the 9900, if it did I would rate the 9790 as the best BlackBerry, I prefer using it over the 9900 and it lasts longer on a charge.
    but the screen is easier to scratch, and the body doesn't feel as firm.

    good idea.

    the thing is there will always be people advising to wait for the next device.. or people advising to wait until the bugs have been ironed out of a new device.

    by the time you are done waiting there will be something new to wait for.

    so my advise is if you want or need a new phone; go get yourself a new phone.

    9900, 9790, 9810 9860 are all great devices.

    I've got the 9900 and my wife has the 9790; both are awesone but the 9900 is the better device.

    IF you need a handset NOW get the 9900 if yoiu can afford it. If you DON'T need to buy something right now then wait for the 10....simples!
