I find that os 6 works best on the 9300. I'd suggest going with a bold or wait for one of the new devices to come out. If you want my 2 cents, go with a 9780 or Torch or wait for one of the new devices to come out. Like me, you'll likely regret the decision to get the 9300.

I have been using blackberry's since the 90's and had multiple different models. Unfortunately my bold did not like JD & Coke as much as me and has stopped working after trying a glass full lol
I urgently needed a replacement so ran to the nearest store and bought the 9300 - HUGE mistake. don't worry about what OS, jsut get a different model.
By far and away is it the worst Blackberry I have owned (just my personal opinion, I understand many of you will disagree)

Build quality - poor. Just does not feel as well put together as others.
Screen Display - although an improvement over previous models, does not compare to the bold, for example.

Also- who makes a phone with a camera and video but no Flash or Light?? (not really important for my business use, but really crap when I want to take a picture of my baby sleeping)

here's the biggie - BATTERY LIFE - i have tried many different OS's and also replaced the handheld twice, have used spare batteries, and even tried a SIM from another carrier. NOTHING makes this last longer than half the life of any of my other devices.

Either I am the most unlucky owner of the 9300, OR, think carefully before buying. I am a HUGE fan of Blackberry's, will continue to use them, just not this *&^&%^* model.

Thanks, I needed to rant :oops:

Well curve 3G is nice ! Bold is also good ! Curve is not too expensive but easy to handle ! Just the QWERTY keyboard isn't too soft as compared to bold and torch !

I own a 9300 and agree that the phone runs out of juice faster than the fastest shooting star :)

Battery life depends on how much you use the device and what you use it for. If you surf a lot or make many calls, then the battery doesn't last as long. It is really hard to respond to your question since how you use the device will different from how anyone else uses it.

As for the OS, Read the 9300 section and see what other users have to say about the various versions.

Once you get your BB and get it set up as you want, and if things work as you need, it might not be broken and need to be fixed with an OS update.
