GeeKay, 15 Jul 2014does it use BIS?No. BlackBerry OS 10.x does not use the BIS network. It connects directly to the internet through your mobile provider or WiFi connection.
GeeKay, 15 Jul 2014does it use BIS?blackberry passport uses data and all blackberry 10 uses data like Z10, Z30, Q5 n Q3. blackberry is following all brands which means no more BIS for new models bt BIS will still apply on those old models which are blackberry 7.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014Check the dims of your passport! They are the same !Nice phone correctly using Q10 am Looking forward to buy this passport,
passport is an awesome phone.. m a true BlackBerry user. using BlackBerry since last 5 years.. now on Z10. but passport is going to b the latest flagship phone of BlackBerry. that means its price going to b soo high.. probably 40k to 45k. m in love with this passport. will buy this phone ASAP. but please BlackBerry, launch it with bit cheaper price for India. rest u know all.. cheerz... ;)
Alkawas, 03 Jul 2014This is the most breath-taking device! It comes awesome features!
Good luck BB...I don't like the phone but
Competition breeds innovation.
This phone has an interesting form factor for sure, and seems to have some impressive specs. I can't wait to see more specs (like the physical dimensions). Using a Z10 currently and looking around for an upgrade. I'm really happy to see that this one will soon be on the horizon. Thanks BlackBerry (now if you could also come out with an OS10 software update for the PlayBook, that would be amazing!)
currently using a Z10 and really happy with it. Can't wait to get my hand on this! Passport is quite odd looking, yeah and it stands out from the rest :)
dear blackberry, i am your true loving costumer.an looking for blackberry passport, which is awsome handset. i want to know, when it will be released an will be there in the indian markets. so please let me know that. i am excitedto bye it soon.
I don't see any numbers on the keyboard. I'm shore it has numbers. But they are probably touch. What I really want to know is if this blackberry device will use BIS or BES because every one loves BIS (free internet)
use a z30 at present,brilliant phone
cant wait to see new passport.
swapped iphone 5s for z30 no regrets.
keep up the good work blackberry.
want to buy the blackberry passport, now that we can get in the blackberry the android app, my q10 is better that ever. now blackberry phone with the android app do the same and more that Samsung but cost only 200 no 700 like samsung.
It seems a great new phone from BB. I think it is time to change my Bold 9900. Good job!
leart78, 11 Jul 2014samsung will make a copy of this as soon as possible hahaha. the phone looks great by the wayYes they will sure do, copying is what they are good in, add some gimmicks nobody uses and sell it as a brand new phone never shown before. With this Phone BlackBerry is going back to its roots again, I can only praise BB to make a phone like this. With a high res screen and a bit of an odd formfactor, though typically BB, it may sell pretty well again. A fairly big screen combined with a qwerty keyboard is a good idea. No other OEM is offering something like this as far as I know.
