simon, 18 Apr 2015Yes the left speakers do not function in BlackBerry classic phone. hii....the left vent at the bottom is not speaker its just a microphone, it has got only one speaker(the one on the right)
mex, 17 Apr 2015to be sincere Q10 is better than this phoneQ10 and Classic share the same hardware and software, but the Classic has more quality materials, finishing touches and more attention to details.
Q10 is more like a low budget BB. In my country you can buy a new Q10 with in 200 euros max, contract free.
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2015So for this Blackberry Classic, the subcontractor also have Mexico? not just China?Also BB have subcontractors in India.
I am not sure if BB Classic is packed up only in China or also in India or Mexico.
As I said before, mine is packed in China.
Maybe other BB Classic owners are kind enough to tell us where their BB Classic was made or packed!

Keep in mind that BBs are not multimedia dedicated phones, therefore don't expect much on this side.

I've just purchased my New Classic and looking on the bottom when playing i.e. youtube, I thought that it was a dual speaker and noticed that the left speaker doesn't have sound! Is anyone having the same problem? Sorry if this is a silly question but hope you can help.
Don, 12 Apr 2015Well folks, as I have posted some weeks back, I was thinking of the S4 I9507 as a replacement ... moreOh, no! I feel sorry for you man. Swapping a BB with an Android it's like changing a quantum physics book with a coloring book.
Why don't you buy a BlackBerry Q5 or Q10 as a low budget emergency solution until Classic price will go down a little bit?

What is the Country of Origin for Blackberry Classic? Made in China or made in Mexico? or available in both?
Well folks, as I have posted some weeks back, I was thinking of the S4 I9507 as a replacement for my poor aging Bold 9900 because it was so much cheaper that the Classic in Australia, like half price under contract with unlimited calls etc. So I got one. Frankly it has been frustrating with Android, little things like crappy email clients, copy and paste is a nightmare, too many apps having access to personal data. I already miss the BB, its speed and simplicity, and perhaps will go back to it when the price of the Classic comes down. Overall the BB keyboard is massively better than touch screen if you text a lot, copy and paste a lot, and dont need to spend all day playing games or on facebook. I just cannot see the reason for Android except it is a cheap gaming platform. If you just want a good business mobile, there is no substitute for BB in many ways. Pity then BB just overprices its mobiles.
Hi guys, have been using the Classic and find it adequate n smooth in all ways. Upgraded from Q5 and its a huge improvement and relief for me. Better than the bold 4 whoch i used to love except the battery life. am very happy with classic except the pricing
As a fan of BlackBerry and an owner of both the Classic and the Passport, I hate to say it but the Classic is garbage. The low res display makes text blurry and uncomfortable to read. The keypad, at least on mine, feels cheap and isn't lit equally (a few dim keys). The track pad doesn't sit straight on the toolbelt.. yup it's wonky! If these weren't an issue, then it would be an absolutely amazing device. WTF BB?! This is not the BB I remember, stop shooting yourself in the foot!!
