XXX13, 09 Aug 2016Facebook have already stop working on the BB 10 OS.It's still working just restored ya phone
I have utilized a BlackBerry Passport for over six months now. It's awesome. Much better than I expected: very practical, much faster than any other smartphone I saw around (especially Windows Phones, no comparison), pretty complete in its default features and with several chances of customization. Really excellent for anyone who needs an "everyday working phone".
The problem with this phone is the constant rebooting.
For a $449-$549 phone this shouldn't be happening to anyone, but thousands of users around the world we face this problem with the BlackBerry Passport.
I will return mind to Amazon tomorrow for a refund.
IPhone 7 it is.
I am done with Microsoft, Nokia, BlackBerry and Samsung.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2016I'd love a replacement Passport with new specifications. Don't care much for many apps. Improv... moreBB10 will be discontinued next Month.
Except for the DOD because of their contract with BlackBerry, along with the other security Companies.

As I see it, this is the best description of the Passport i've read,, even better than the company's advertisements. How about a Passport without a physical screen as an option? and/or an Android option. But keep the form-factor exactly the same.

jassi the great, 17 Jul 2016Can I install WhatsApp app on blackberry passports deviceYes you can using Google Play store,if you know how to download sideload?
Some of the best applications will stop supporting the BlackBerry OS, like What's up will not work with BB OS starting from 1 Jan 2017
I'd love a replacement Passport with new specifications. Don't care much for many apps. Improve the cameras but I'd stay with OS10.
I've said this before elsewhere. My BlackBerry Passport is like my HP41C calculator. Unique. Efficient. Practical.
san1gj, 05 Aug 2016I am die hard fan of bb os 10 & using bb z10 from long time but now as my z10 motherboard ... moreI do not know if it's helpful, but I have one Passport Silver and an Iphone 6 (also used wife's Lumia). I am constantly going back to my Passport since BB10 OS is simply the best for me (although I am not a gamer or similar). Combo of BB10 with wide screen is simply amazing and once U get used to it, narrower phones seem inadequate. Previously I had q10 and it took me couple of days to get used to the width, but now q10 seem tiny to me.
All in all my only complaint is that some (not critical) android apps do not work properly, but I can live with that.
P.S. It also draws more attention than any other phone; people think it's a Porsche design
I am die hard fan of bb os 10 & using bb z10 from long time but now as my z10 motherboard is dead i am thinking to buy bb passport so wanna know its users review that is it still wise to buy it? As of now even july passed but no news regarding release of bb os 10.3.3. Whats app & fb already have declared that at the end of year they will not continue there support to bb mobiles.

Any blackberry passport made with virtual keyboard? please help me then I will buy the passport silver edition.

It's been loaded up and running it for weeks now and it's bulletproof so go ahead and download it again through BlackBerry world and you should be fine all the best
Bob, 17 Jul 2016This BlackBerry Passport is running BlackBerry 10 OS which Android apps can be installed direc... moreDear bob, my suggestion is better to go with android, as I'm seeing a change towards more difficulties for bb10 if BlackBerry left it like this (if they do something to make it is 100% compatible with android, things may improve like licencing google play services etc)
At present who installed google play services with stable & proven "cobalt method", are able to enjoy both worlds of bb10 and android.
But recently more problems are coming in the form of uber, ola, taxi for sure are unable to integrate to map even after patching. But uber works without patching. Whatsup apk does not work without patch and if we patch, whatsup server does not allow it to work.
Why just an end user we should have this much advanced knowledge to make bb10 phone to work for our need esp urgent conditions, these patched apps may crash e.g you are in middle of journey patched google
Map crashes etc. You should be software maintenance expert to run esp that apps that require google play services.
If want similar form factor, you can opt for LG Vu3 but without physical key board. Unfortunate LG brought it much ahead of society mind set acceptable time. If they reboot Vu series I anticipate to successful. For any further details may please read my earlier posts.
