    I just upgraded from Bold 9900 to P'9981. I got it while visiting UAE. It was just too good looking to pass.

    Anyways I have 2 questions.

    There was no case included in the box. So did anyone manage to find a case or at least some holder thingy with a magnet.

    I'm starting to really miss Mobile Hotspot feature of the 9900. Is there a 7.1 leak for the 9981 or can the 9900/30 firmware be hacked somehow to be used with our 9981s?

    The 9900 case is a little bit too small but, if you work at it, it can fit it and magnet works.

    Bold 9000's one fits but magnet does not work

    I need to visit the local Porsche design shop then.

    One more thing. My keyboard light is uneven. It's more bright in the "space" area then in either side. In 9900 it was perfectly even though dimmer than 9981. Anyone else notice it?

    Keyboard illumination was always perfect in all bolds. I wonder how they messed it up.

    just wondering how much you paid in the UAE for it.

    I thought I would get the cheapest price down in Australia and missed out on buying it in Germany where it was 1475 Euro, down here it is around AU $2300
    So now I am wondering how much the price differs from UAE to Singapore to Hong Kong.
    These are all places where I will be over the next months.
    So where is the best place to buy^^

    It seems about the same everywhere actually. I paid about 7000 dirhams.

    this is exactly why I'm back to 9900 after about 1 week with p 99981
    no 7.1 OS
    and i guess this device will always be lagging in terms of OSes release because not many people own it
    and the keyboard is better in 9900 compared to this

    its a shame cause i really like this phone's looks,
    and after severals build quality issues witht the 9900 i thought that this "expensive" berry should be made with much better quality control
    but too bad it doesn't

    my space keys also "wiggle"

    this is a $2000 phone for god sake!
