I used iphone before. I used this phone for buisness but did not like it. I am going back Iphone again.
Few years ago I switched from BB to Apple. iPhones are simple to use, great design and very reliable BUT very expansive and with some annoying limitations. Now I had switched back to my old trustworthy BB Q10 and bought BB Passport a month ago. I use both of them - Q10 for calls and SMS, Passport for emails, news,... I'm very satisfied with both phones although Q10 should have better battery. Passport is great to use but dimensions are little unpractical for intensive use - 100 times in and out of the pocket per day. BB should develop it's own 'ecosystem' - connection between smartphones, tablets,... Next model of the Passport should be the same dimensions but without physical keyboard - like small tablet - and with better camera.
I need a compact, sturdy and reliable communication tools for my daily needs because I work in an office and in the field. BB is on a right way...

I am Business class user. So, Currently using BB old model and waited couple of months just to see product stability and prices slash down. I believe it is perfect combination for what i am looking. However, looking for limited edition (Red Ones). Is there is any specifications change or just the color difference ?
john ogologomma, 26 Apr 2015should i get this or note 4 ?Hey John! Think a list of things you'd like doing on your phone first. Then list them out then compare if you can do them on the Note 4 and on the BB Passport. If your satisfied with what the devices can do, you'd know which device to buy for yourself.

Eg : number of applications you open, if acessing Internet and signal is low, you may be at area where network is low, badly developed android app eats up more CPU, I would suggest below below apps that may help to maintain BlackBerry devices. Cleaner, Task killer,apps from BlackBerry World, CCLEANER, 360 security ( I think it's good app but it creates some problem with BlackBerry devices but I am not sure about this please check it out yourselves) from android

A phone could drain battery quickly & overheat when there is constant background activity e.g constantly searching for a good network signal, if your area of network coverage is bad. Try adjusting your mobile network settings. I set mine like this because I have 4G where I live. So if you don't have a good 4G then advice you leave it at 3G 2G. If this doesn't work, try software update (for a new update) or 'reload software' using the blackberry link pc app (for a fresh re-install of the current software OS) after you may have connected your phone to the pc. In the case of the later two fixes, don't restore phone system settings via the BlackBerry link when restoring media & apps if need be, just input your phone settings manually. A backed up Phone system setting (from a previously different device/model e.g z10) restored unto a different device/model(e.g q10) could cause bugs or problems for the it. Hope this info helps.
I bought blackberry passport handset on 10.12.2014 from Delhi BEECHAMS, found manufacturing defects in camera, after lot of persuasion service centre address was provided by dealer,. Handset was given to service centgre BB Expert Center Nehru Place, Delhi on 14.04.2015 with expected return date on 17.04.2015, but not returned till today on 25.04.2015. No response they are giving.
Company website has no address, phone or email address.
A phone with manufacturing defect has to be changed instantly.
I decided to file case against them in Court. also decided will not buy any blackberry products in future.
They don't provide services at all and not replace defective handset. They dont have their service centre, outsource to HCL.
I recommend not to buy blackberry.
Its the whole new innovation in mobile devices, physical keyboard that also acts as a trackpad and u can scroll through pages easily, u don't always need to touch the big beautiful sharper screen and is smudge free than other devices like iphone or any android devices, u will miss the charger because it lasts damn long, u will need to work hard to drain its battery, u don't need to charge it every two or three hour like iphones or android, if u like fingerprint unlocking forget it because without it its lot safer.
