Mueen, 23 May 2016Hello, did you get answer to your question if Priv supports BES and BIS... I bought it yesterd... moreIve used BB in many years, have used both BIS and BES, but when i changed to Q10 it wasnt necessary with either BIS or BES. I had data and could access my work mail/exchange etc. PRIV has Android and should work as other non old BB phones, but you want you data compressed through RIM? BIS provided you a data connection through RIM, and all data was compressed and so on. You should have full data access without BIS or BES with a 10+ BB. And what i mean is that theres no need for either BIS or BES today, unless your admin or ISP tells you so, what would be strange!? Did i misunderstood anything? :)

slk , 16 May 2016Hi,does d BlackBerry priv comes with built in facebook app?No, you download it from the play store
in reply to Tony...
For me, I'll go for iPhone. I prefer the iOS rather than Android, but this is not the case for everyone.
iPhone have a better build quality and looks rigid. On the other hand, bb has a real keyboard for those who love texting and an edge to edge screen.
Consider also the accessories availability. iPhone accessories are everywhere.
nick, 12 May 2016I wish blackberry comes up with a new model like PRIV but smaller in size and weight .Yes, that is my wish too, something smaller than Priv, cause BB OS is so easy to use.
It is good to see that Blackberry is coming up again. We all need Blackberry to build its own lost identity back. This jayant got fail due to the lack of adaptation to the people's need. Those days Blackberry was positioned in minds of the people that similar to Mercedes Benz. Blackberry need to come with Dual Sim phones urgently. Dual sim is the phone that needed for Business Community and professionals. Recently I saw Blackberry Priv , amazing features with Email client. Still this market is with a big gap. Samsung couldn't full filled the gap and either Microsoft. Microsoft's windows 10 is a big failure when its come to email client and they still learning to develop phones for business community and professionals. Blackberry need to immediately release Dual sim phones without delay. The market is aggressively seeking Dual sim phones with new features for email client. Ex. when you send an email from your Phone's pop3 account at the same time it should be appear in your laptop or pc after the syncing. This amazing feature is there with the Blackberry Priv but the phone is single sim. Single sim is useless for professionals and business community.Please act fast and build your image with supplying markets need.

Why Blackberry doesn't have dual sim. That why Blackberry struggling to come up. Good phone but need to adjust with ongoing needs.
I have a blackberry classic and I want to buy a priv but thr front cam is too low(2 mp, same as bb classic)! Hope blackberry will adjust their front cam to attract more buyers :)))
maan, 10 May 2016Can anyone plz tell me about the bb priv fron cam quality coz as i read the frnt m.p is 2....s... moreI have a priv, its front cam is a compromise to be frank, otherwise its a solid device. If you are looking for good front/back cameras and a decent phone buy LG G4 or V10 or G5 (they have the best smart phone cameras till date).
Can anyone plz tell me about the bb priv fron cam quality coz as i read the frnt m.p is 2....so im in little bit of doubt so plz tell me about the front cam quality.
shiva fazer , 04 May 2016Witch one is best Blackberry priv (or) samsung note 5 Any one pls reply me I am waiting fo... moreBoth Note 5 and Priv are great phones. Priv is better for security. Security updates have come out even faster than to Google Nexus phones. No other manufacturer comes close. However if your carrier does not push the updates, this does not help, so the best way to buy a Priv is unlocked so you get the updates straight from BlackBerry. Priv also has additional security on top of any other Android phone (there is a lot to this so research if this is important to you). Priv uses very close to stock Android which I prefer over Samsung's messy and overly complicated (but improving) TouchWiz. TouchWiz makes it hard for Samsung to release new Android versions in a timely fashion, so new Android versions take a long time to come out. Blackberry took even longer for Marshmallow to come out than Samsung, but I expect that this is because Android is new to Blackberry, but who knows for sure. Blackberry updates were very frequent with their old BB10 phones. Samsungs tend to be very well designed and pretty. Both have excellent cameras but I would say Samsungs is a little better. Note has the "S-Pen" stylus, and Priv has a slide out physical keyboard. Which of these is more useful is entirely up to you.
