    My iPhone 4s is not a LTE device, in order for me to get LTE and Visual-voice Mail on Blackberry Passport do I just need a new nano sim card from AT&T ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you will need an LTE SIM, should be free or nearly free from AT&T. At Verizon, corp stores give them out free and 3rd party stores charge 10 dollars. T-Mobile charges 10, but often will waive it. Should not be more than 10 from AT&T and likely will be free.

    this is not an answer to your question but thought I would chime in with some basic advice make sure you shutdown imessage before you transfer the phone over otherwise you may not get SMS.

    Lisa, I would recommend you take your Passport to the AT&T store, and put the new nano SIM in it at the store. Then, if LTE does not show up on the screen, there may be some back end provisioning necessary, which the reps should be able to help you with. If you have an unlimited data plan, make sure you confirm at the store that it's still intact. If it were me, I would call AT&T customer service to verify this as well.

    Yes I do have the unlimited data plan. Tomorrow I will call AT&T and check if I can keep my unlimited data plan after switching from iphone 4s to Blackberry Passport. I ordered my passport on Oct 7th, still waiting...

    Yes, you should be able to, because you bought your phone at full price (i.e. you didn't get one subsidized from AT&T.) They aren't supposed to touch your plan when you do that, so make sure the unlimited data stays, and your monthly bill total is the same as well.

    Hi
    I've got my Blackberry Passport today. Went to the AT&T store, they installed a nano sim card and registered my new IMEI#. We restarted the phone and minute later I had LTE signal (here in midtown Manhattan). Unfortunately I was unable to dial out, I was getting “call failed” message. I didn't want to waste time at the store, so I came home, called AT&T support line (800.331.0500), not sure what exactly they did but after 10 minutes on hold I was able to make and receive phone calls too. During my test calls I noticed I wasn't getting Visual Voice Mail, the tech-rep said my phone had to be provisioned for Visual Voice Mail. That VVM provisioning setup took another minute or so. In short I am all set now. Oh yeah one more thing, my unlimited data-plan didn’t change 
    This phone is AWESOME! I won’t miss my iPhone4s
    Thank you all
