Re: replacement battery for 9900

Check this one out by Mungen. It's not a huge difference as it's 1500 MAh, but it's the same size as the original. Mungen makes a very good product. This is the only battery I've used for a long...

Re: Lost Default Ringtones

I'd recommend reinstalling your OS (the latest if you don't already use it). You may also want to wipe the phone before installing the OS. Make sure all your data is backed up.

Re: Lost Default Ringtones

Have you tried a battery pull? Did you install any new apps recently? What OS are you currently using?

Re: E-mail delay

Any changes on your 9900 since you started noticing the delay? Did you say you resent your service books?

Re: Digitizer replacement

Agreed. A good microfiber cloth does a beautiful job. Wouldn't use any liquids.

What is a digitizer? Not sure I've heard the term in relationship to the phone.

Re: 9900 weak signal compared to my other BB

Something sounds wrong. Have you tried other OS versions and compared? If it's still under warranty you might try exchanging it.

It will work if you pay for it. Also, not necessary to delete vendor files when it's your own carrier. But probably a good habit to do.
