AUD$500 plus for this mobile from Telstra in Australia. Rather expensive, and who is actually making the margins - Telstra, Blackberry, the importer, or custom taxes. It is really overpriced - what a pity.
Hommer, 22 Feb 2015Is classic built with gorilla glass 3?.. Yes, this phone does have Corning Gorilla Glass 3, but I would recommend applying a protective plastic film or using a holder.
wqlker, 15 Feb 2015does this phone support call recording?There are Call Recorder "built for Blackberry 10" apps. A quick search in the BB App Store showed two free call recorder apps and 2 paid call recording apps. The most popular one is Call Recorder For Blackberry 10 Free by Ajani Info Tech the developer. Based on the 1,985 reviews, it gets an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. That should tell you this is a reliable app, and the same goes for the other apps. In short, what you have in Android, you will have in Blackberry.
saim, 20 Feb 2015Classic made in China it's original or fake please answer me?
My BB Classic in "Made in China for Blackberry Canada" (that is wrote on the box), and I have got mine at Orange Romania Customer Retention Program.
I don't think Orange sells fakes aka clones, therefore if you will buy a BB from a trusted source, even if is "Made in China" it will be a genuine BB.
Iam from india,and Iam using this device for last one week my review is its an awesome design,decent os,never hang and heat issues.battery is ok it's depending on our usage.typing exp is super.little bulk but it's ok camera is decent.build quality and design is brilliant.the hub is very useful I love it
say what again!, 17 Feb 2015I sure would like to have some of what you're smoking! The Classic could have the tightest ... moreHa - and they are almost giving away S4 Samsungs in Australia. So much for their resale value.
jyb, 11 Feb 2015Nice try misleading people, you BB hater. Your name says it all "RIP2BBERRY" so peop... moreI sure would like to have some of what you're smoking!
The Classic could have the tightest OS and core apps, combined with bulletproof build quality. It doesn't matter at this point, hardly anyone will ever know.
I see people on Craigslist trying to sell their Classics when they relize just what they've bought. Their slowly eroding pride is almost painful to watch; $600-$500-$400-$350-$300, still no sale.
How many months since it released?
How old is the 5S, and look at its resale value?!
I do plan to pick one up, believe me. In about 2-3 months, they should be going for $200. Just about even with the Q10's they're recycled from.
i have been using this phone for about a week now and I'm satisfied with it. I only have some minor issues with like having a Number Passcode when the phone itself is being locked. When you press the call button, almost from anywhere while using it tends you to be opening its log not directly the dialing pad. Its processor is not fast enough in opening in between apps. Its a little bit difficult creating a new entry for new contacts as compared to the previous OS of blackberry. Anyhow, I''m still very much contented with it and should only be used like any other smartphone except that I'm not recommending it for long term web browsing
This phone has a stellar OS, but the device is just waay too huge. Returning mine.
I brought one but made in china.it original or fake I don't know.can anybody help me please!
