Unbelievable sigh of relief that the BlackBerry classic has arrived and I am perplexed to why a great phone made with such quality has little exposure in retail stores in Canada. What I mean is this i phones and samsung have their phones on ready for customers to test run. BlackBerry classics are off in most stores and in order to try one out good luck. I saw one in a Rogers outlet store and wow sold but took me a month to buy and try since most stores had them off...in Canada why???? turn them on and customers will see the difference I did!!!
This is a fantastic device.
I found it has a bit of a learning curve, getting used to the keys and the OS. But it is all very well structured.
Great job BlackBerry.
Ann Carrie and Marius - I like reading your responses on GSMARENA forum. I think you are describing the right picture of BB capability. In the past I used 9700, 9780, 9900 devices. Then I used iPhone 3gs, 4s, 5s. Now I use Q10 and Passport and I don't think I will switch to another OS soon. It is a fact that BB OS 10 with it's devices is a very useful OS for daily communication on professional level - exactly what I need!
I have a friend working in a mobile phone store and I have the oportunity to check different mobile phones. After all checkings - BB stands out as the most practical and reliable communication tool - and with some style too.
For trolls - you know nothing about BB and style. You know nothing about anything. Go back to school!
Marius, 09 May 2015Are you brain damage, or something like that? First of all this is BLACKBERY area and not ... moreI wouldn't gave her such cerebral aerobics saying ip address etc. What I think she wants is someone to donate a BlackBerry phone. If any of the GSMareana users are willing to donate a BlackBerry phone to a poor soul who desperately needs it, but can't afford it please help.
When Texting, Classic 3.5" screen doesn't feel small compare to 5.2" LG G2 with it's virtual keyboard on. In fact, i feel those two smartphones have same size screen, thanks to Classic screen square ratio.
[deleted post]Are you brain damage, or something like that?
First of all this is BLACKBERY area and not iPhone, Smasung, HTC, Android, WindowS Phone (N.B. not window as you typed here a few times) or iOS.
Second, if you don't like or can not afford to buy a BB this does not mean that BB phones are garbage. You don't like it, don't buy it, don't use it. AS SIMPLE AS THAT!
Third, if BB phones are used by only 1% of world population, this does not mean BB OS in rubbish.
Fourth, I had Andorid and Windows Mobile phones, therefore I know what I am talking about.
Fifth, the fact that you are posting here under the same IP with multiple users, just to denigrate BB says it all.
Sixth, the fact that you are asking a guestion under @gray user and answer to yourself as @dibi user (using the same IP), just to denigrate BB Classic, says it all about your life and how miserable is it.
Seventh, learn some English grammar and ask some specialized help.
Eight, buy yourself a life and refuse to live it on GSMArena and www.
after a month buying Classic, i had using Classic as primary phone for my business, and my Lg g2 as secondary phone.
Yes, LG G2 is more fluid compare to Classic.
Yes, Playstore supply a lot of apps, but usually i just download it but rarely use the apps.
Playing games in smartphone don't satisfy me (smaller screen & lower battery compare to tablet), that's why i choose ipad mini2 for entertainment.
Opening dropbox ( and other apps ) in classic sometimes need extra time to show folders. But somehow, i like using Classic more often compare to LG G2. I like the keyboard and trackpad in classic.
PS : sorry for bad english
[deleted post]The point is you just troll the comments section. People use BlackBerry because they know how powerful tool is it for their business. That is a fact. BlackBerry 10 is the most stable OS at present. The screen size of BlackBerry Classic is more than any previous touch screen smartphones. That's why serious business people use BlackBerry 10 , and other platforms for entertainment. That is too, a fact
[deleted post]The people who control money use BlackBerry 10. The who is who use the only powerful mobile OS, BlackBerry 10.
[deleted post]You don't have business, so can't do. For the rest, they do business using BlackBerry Classic.

Just made my point: How miserable, mineless, hopeless, empty, shallow your life must be?!?!
[deleted post]Big enough screen for professional use. Don't waste money buying other phones. Buy BlackBerry Classic.
[deleted post]It is false. In last 5 years, more cheaper phones launched those used mainly for games and entertainment. BlackBerry is for business people and they use it for earning money. To spend money on entertainment all other phones are used. BlackBerry OS is the only perfect mobile OS.
Marius, 09 May 2015Just don't bother when it comes about @Anonymous - vGe1. It's nobody who only saw a BlackB... moreI know what she is doing here. I know the fact too that one should not feed trolls. Maybe she is an aspirants tech blogger, and become one too some day and could afford a BlackBerry flagship smartphone. This my humble attempt to give her as much information about BlackBerry as possible. It is kinda social service for me, you know:)
Ann Carrie, 09 May 2015Yes recommended BlackBerry. Don't buy anything else.Just don't bother when it comes about @Anonymous - vGe1.
It's nobody who only saw a BlackBerry on Youtube videos, comes on BB area and talks about WhatsApp, WeChat, iPhone and Samsung into a spanglish that only him or her is able to understand.
In the past GSMArena moderators have been deleted all his/her messages, because they have nothing to say about BlackBerry. Only trash.
Just report his/her messages!
gary, 09 May 2015We all know people don't use too much blacberry. If I agree your theory of 1% so what?We all know that 99% of world population uses only 1% of their brain and believe that smartphone = iPhone and/or Samsung.
You are aware by the fact that you have same IP as @Anonymous - vGe1, right?
How miserable, mineless, hopeless, empty, shallow your life must be?!?!
jhonyxz9000, 08 May 2015hi Ann, are you using this phone ? how is the battery life for heavy net user, i surf net a lo... moreStand by is close to what producer say. Up to 11 h 40 min (2G) / Up to 17 h 10 min (3G) if phone is permanently conected on internet (not necessary browsing).
gary, 09 May 2015We all know people don't use too much blacberry. If I agree your theory of 1% so what?All of us know that you are smitten by BlackBerry, but can't afford it. I agree that.
