The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is finally on its way to AT&T, so you can bet their marketing will kick into high gear. With the release less than a week away, I'm sure we'll see plenty of fun AT&T Bold 9900 goodies floating around. The first comes in the form of a Mobile Minute video showing off the Bold 9900 and all of its wonderful features. In case you don't know, the Bold 9900 sports a full QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen, 1.2GHz processor, 5MP camera and the BlackBerry 7 OS. Are you planning on picking up the 9900 when it arrives on AT&T? Let us know in the comments!

I hate that they say "BRAND NEW BlackBerry Bold 9900". It's not BRAND NEW you jerks!!

jea.nine

Awesome! And Customer Care says if you upgrade through them (old school via 800#) you can do so up to 6 months sooner than your scheduled upgrade date.

skdebisingh

Why does it say 4g and not H+? My friend's torch says H+...

Alpha Omega

it shows 4G but he said it is H+.

Connor83

I was wondering the same thing. Do all the 99xx say 4G? I thought they said H+ or something like that

08rodrjo

OS 7.0.0.439 for torch 9810 changes that now it says 4G., or at least mine does now

Alpha Omega

yes I'm tired of my 9800 already,Didn't want the 9810. I've been going back to my 9000 so i can get use to the keyboard again. cant wait

thelink74

same here! been patiently using my 9800 hoping for the 9900. i was ok with the form factor of my 9800 but after a month of use i got tired of the slider feature to use the keyboard. i hate virtual keyboards and my previous device was the 9700 and i loved that keyboard. i can't wait till Sunday and i want the white model. i sure hope they have the white ones in stock when i head over to the store...

ianbordas

Same here!! I just sold my 9800, was about to buy a Rogers or whatever out there, so very thankful ATT finally giving us our dream phone!

Nov 6th.. what time does AT&T open in the morning?? I'll definitely be getting mine!

I just think this phone is awesome.

I've had my Bold 9930 from launch (Sprint-yeah, I was at ATT but I did not know when or if it was coming so I went to Sprint) and I love all the traditional BlackBerry goodies but the web and youtube experience is now great.

The Torch has a great form factor but it is difficult to argue with that grand piano like keyboard. What a pleasure to use.

Connor83

I can't wait to see how much better the browser really is

Too little too late!! After owning a blackberry for the last 4 years, i've finally switched to the new iphone 4s. My 9700 with att was working so poorly while waiting for new blackberry devices to come out. I waited as long as I could and have lost patience with rim. Will see what happens next time I can upgrade. I love the new iphone, RIM really does need to get their act together.

ianbordas

Just curious... why are even posting here? Did you at least type this post with Siri? Enjoy your iPhone.

thecsman

I bought an unlocked iphone4s just to prove you wrong. Siri is nice for booking appointments and check the weather, but that is all! The battery of the iphone4s is BAD. You can barely make it through the day. I prefer my 9900 where even after 12 hours of usage with Bridge, tethering and bluetooth headset still had 10% of battery left. I tried with the 4s and it didn't make it home.

The Bold 9900 is a beautiful phone and it plays so damn well with the Playbook. And don't forget to setup BB Protect!

Yes time to retire my trusty 9700

here is a little snippet with regard to difference between 4G and HSPA+ ...long story short similar to EDGE/3G..

Difference between HSPA+ and LTE
1. HSPA+ is compatible with previous releases and LTE is not backward compatible with 3G networks.
2. HSPA+ data rates are capable of delivering 84Mbps downlink maximum and LTE is capable of providing more than 100Mbps downlink.
3. LTE uses OFDMA and SC FDMA in radio access networks with MIMO techniques and HSPA+ relies on MIMO techniques.
4. HSPA+ channel bandwidth is fixed at 5MHz and it combines two channel while doubling data rates and LTE uses varying bandwidth of 1.4MHz to 20 MHz.

Yes! I used my upgrade for the 9810, and I am less than thrilled. Still within 30 days, so I am going to reverse the upgrade, and use it for the 9900!!

mnhockeycoach99

The next 4 days is going to seem like an eternity. On a positive note, at least it wasn't delayed until Nov 20th (or later). Now I just hope there is one at my local Best Buy or AT&T store with my name on it.

corbella

Did anyone else notice auto focus screen on the video? This seemed to be a concern for a lot of folks earlier.

08rodrjo

So this 9900 says 4G how can i get that istead of the H+ ? Is that software related or hardware i have a rogers 9900., i got that on my torch 9810 when i updated the os to .439 ., anyone know the answer

ldsmaf

I have already reserved my and am DYING to get it. I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

biggietoms

Im not due for an upgrade till the end of the year so i hope they'll let me upgrade early, if not ill throw a fit in the store.

msrb21

you can go to an ATT specialty store, or an exclusive store, for an EXCEPTION upgrade.

jea.nine

Customer Care offered me an upgrade if I were within 6 months of an upgrade, but had to do it through them, not a store she said... Would love to know what a specialty/exclusive store is. Thanks.

msrb21

if customer care gave you that option, that would be great!

joeberrymomma

Fantastic! Once this releases at the $199 price point, it should drop the price on T-Mobile from the ridiculous $299 price point. AT&T has been okay, just expensive. I can save over $50/month on T-Mobile for the same service and even more if I drop my minutes from unlimited to 500 and take advantage of the UMA - WiFi calling which is due to be available on the 9900 mid November. My contract with AT&T is up in December. Strongly considering a change. Only thing is I will lose my grandfather unlimited data plan on AT&T. The golden handcuffs. 2GB of high speed data for a Blackberry that uses compressed files should be fine, right? LOL!
Anyway, the 9900 on either service is a sweet phone! Just wanting to save a little cash.

joeberrymomma

P.S. If you can wait, which it sounds like many of you cannot, LOL!, Christmas specials should be coming. Remember two years ago when I got my 9700 on a Christmas special for $49 with AT&T. The phone had just come out a few months prior.

editionfws

I've wanted the 9900 for awhile. Now its coming. I can't get a new upgrade until april. I got my torch in august on the first day it came out on att. I don't know if I should get a 9900 or just wait for bbx to roll out. I guess I have a few months to think it over.

leahsaysso

Yesssssssssssssss....I walked into At&t ready to just get the torch because I couldn't stand the iphone anymore but a million thanks to the sales associate who convinced me to wait because I only had to wait a month!!!

suzander

Yes and I am stoked. I love my 9700 but it is time for an upgrade. Well, December is when I am technically due, but hopefully they will let me upgrade a month early. If it means a sale, why wouldn't they??

msrb21

cant wait! go reverse those upgrade (if within 30 days from the last upgrade), or go to any Exclusive AT&T stores for an exception upgrade... make sure to have them grandfather your unlimited data. Cheers!

saudi_king

Already got my 9930 from Sprint after dropping AT&T two months ago. I wish they would have released this phone MONTHS AGO so I didn't have to drop them.

:(

msrb21

port it back to AT&T :)

but i understand, ETF will apply :(
