    Can an original Blackberry Classic be upgraded to the Blackberry 10 operating system? I'm just wondering if upgrading my original Blackberry classic is possible, or do I need to buy the "new" Blackberry classic?

    I am so not technical. I didn't realize that all Blackberry classics are the same. So do I just need to choose a carrier and upgrade to the latest operating system and my classic will work?

    Did you mean you have a "Legacy" device like "Bold" for example? Running OS 7.x

    Blackberry built the "classic" to optically imit the Bold, it's best legacy device so far.
    A blackberry classic runs BB10 from the beginning
    A bold can't be upgraded to BB10 (not compatible)

    I think that what I thought I had was a Blackberry classic, but in reality, it is a Bold. I apologize for wasting everyone's time! They look very similar, so I was fooled.

    Never mind... now if you want to upgrade to BB10, you might consider the Q5, Q10 and classic which indeed has the look of Bold.
    However, Q10 is the best among them (hardware). The classic has a bigger screen but no more.
    The Passport beats them all.

    But believe it or not, the Q5 is more than okay!! You can begin with it to explore BB10 and it is as good as all the other phones even if much cheaper! In this case, the price tells nothing about it's capabilities!
