    Hello everyone,

    I have a few questions :

    1 : I am new to BB10 and i recently purchase a passport, is it worth getting a playbook?

    2: My Passport is still getting the "temporary server error" when trying to connect to BBM, i already restart, reload the OS, register my BB.... but still nothing, i was never able to connect to BBM. What can i do now?

    3: 10.3.3 is now out, but still not update on my phone and when downloading the auto loader, its telling me that the version of windows i use is not correct (86 or 64), is there a tutorial to how update via the boot loader?

    4: I'm from Android and i'm use to have hangout, Skype and Facebook messenger as my mains way of contacting people, but on the Passport, i cannot call through Skype, Facebook or google talk.....any ideas or replacement for those?

    5: Is it worth getting a classic or Q10 in addition to my passport as a secondary phone?

    6: BB Blend is installed on my W7 pc and set up on my phone, both are log in with my BB id, but my computer cannot find my Passport.... any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that's a lot of questions! I think most of them have been answered on these forums, but I will give it a shot to answer a couple for you.

    1. The Playbook is not getting any real support. The forums here dealing with the Playbook have some experts that have squeezed out a longer life from their devices. But I personally do not recommend getting it, IMHO.

    2. We had a similar discussion here: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe.../#post12541541

    3. Get the proper autoloader and info here: http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...rchive-943672/

    4. Add the Android versions of those apps through the Google Play Store. Getting the Google Play Store by carefully following the instructions here: http://forums.crackberry.com/android...ctions-985344/

    5. The Classic is a better device than the Q10, unless you're looking for the smallest form factor.

    However, there will still be some limitations.

    Nice post.

    I don't disagree with the statement above (the trackpad, larger keyboard, and LCD make the Classic a good choice), but it's worth noting that I've seen some forum members describe the Classic as laggy, but have not seen the Q10 described in the same way. My own experience with the Q10 has been lag-free (meaning no freezes or stutters), though some apps are slow to open.

    I wonder what those who describe the Classic as laggy mean? Are they actually seeing slowdowns in the UI or just slow app opening?

    You'd think both or neither of them would be laggy, they have the same CPU, RAM and OS.

    Exactly. They are virtually the same except the Classic is a bit larger which I would have liked when I bought my Q10. However, the Q10 easily slid in and out of my shirt pockets and tucked into jackets with no problem. It is still a good device, but I do like larger screen sizes now.

    Let's recap the Q10
