You give this phone or any BlackBerry 10 phone to anyone with an open application and ask them to get it back to the homescreen. They won't be able to do. And then you show them how to do it and they would be like 'Woah'. Blackberry's are known for their complexity. And this one ain't complex. That's why they were known as business phones. BlackBerry 10 OS has been one of the best OS ever developed. It's ahead of its time and that's why people find it hard to get used to it. Blackberry VS Android/iOS/Windows is something like Apple VS Microsoft from the 90's. Anyone and everyone has an android or an iOS these days but if you have this in your hand, it'll mean that you mean business. None of your long lost friends are gonna give you a call and ask you to know how your android/iOS phones been working, but BB10 will get that to you. There are few glitches here and there in every phone, so does this. But at the end of the day, I've been using a Q5 from the last 6 months now, it has replaced my Laptop for most of the part. It's a crazy device and you're missing on a lot if you don't have one.
krishntk., 20 Jan 2014I'm Indian I want to buy this phone. But anyone tell me. Can I use this phone without BIS? ... moreNo, you don't need to get a BIS plan to use BBM or any of it. It works on your regular internet plan.

But anyone tell me.
Can I use this phone without BIS?
Otherwise this is awesome device.
I have having Camera issue in my Q5, how to resolve this problem?
BlackBerry is not a waste. It us the best mobile manufacturer out in d industry
y go for bb and not for android:
bb 10.2 update has brought along android runtime. Which means you can sideload android apps on bb
bb 10 gives u the best and very smooth ui which multitasks the best
z10 has 2gig of ram which is very efficient
the camera onboard is awesome and one of the best in industry. The bb keyboard is so smooth and easy
and the last, but the most important, bb is the most secure mobile maker and unlike android, its always protected
Very good phone. Draw back is only small Screen size. Working 4G LTE in Qatar, internet speed 1.5 times of normal 3G. I will recommend this to traditional blackberry users. Android/Windows phone users will feel disappointed as apps are less.
BlackBerry is totally waste in all era. It's better to go with Android phones which has better options. Even BBM also came to android. We can enjoy BBM in android. But we can't enjoy android applications in BlackBerry.
So BlackBerry is totally waste mobile.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2014does the q5 work on regular on internet charges like dat of andriod or windows..or on the blac... moreyes, you can register on a regular data promos or you can use your regular load for the internet... you cannot use the blackberry services promo for this one, its just a waste of money... ask your service provider about the data promos that you can avail...
