    I'm totally stealing that.

    Amidst everything, I just want to say that after almost two days playing it for the first time ever I believe it's the tool belt--more so than the keyboard, that gets me head over heel towards 9900. That, and the system that fits so perfectly with that tool belt. Much so that I have this gnawing doubt that I'd get the same awe and joy when I get the Classic later. Even with the same belt, it's essentially different.

    I had to switch back to my Q10 at some point due to some work requirements, but my hands just can't help but reaching for the 9900 every chance it gets. I sorely miss the belt. And my eyes--I swear to God the 9900 looks way more appealing and gorgeous than the Q10, just lying there on the desk.

    I frequently feel the same way. Back at the office, Classic, Passport, Z30 & D60 all beckon from desk. Hand reaches for 99, 90+% of time. It's just TOO agreeably eager!

    That said, Classic's toolbelt has matured some refinement in the latest 10.3.3 updates. Subtle but welcome. Little things like the threshold between panning or jumping focus... Etc... Give Classic with latest os a try and you might just find it tolerably "mature".

    It'll never match our 99's, simply because of size if nothing else, but Classic frequently finds its way into my right hand while 99 simultaneously leads the way from left hand. A VERY productive double fisted combo made enjoyable by single handed friendly toolbelts .

    I didn't see in the preceding posts whether you said that you're normally using two-step verification. If not, then you would not get a text.

    .
    Correct I do not think I have two step verification turned on. And as I've learned since this thread was started 2 step and allow less secure devices are two different things.

    Bummer... From photo, looks like a competent shop should make quick work of it. Metal is stretched in creases, tho.

    Good thing you, or someone, were near by to get plate #, tho. Sounds like a runaway coward is too past due for learning some action-reaction reality in their life. Sometimes mentoring isn't planned.
    The driver was also from another province according to the license plate, hence the reason I was told I have to go through the police. Otherwise the provincial government would just take care of it here. (Liscense issuer) They will definitely get points off their drivers license and I should have everything paid for no charge to me.

    I also had two witnesses. So I was sure to get their name and plate number etc.

    Okay. So, in other words, one cannot expect to have wifi calling in the current BBOS devices, correct? Can you, or perhaps Ralph, do phone calls with your whatsapp on 9900?
    I still have to pop the sim into the 99 to check but the last time NO, it would not work.

    I was WRONG. After I logged onto the wi-fi hotspot here, I had to turn off the cellular radio -- THEN I was able to place a BBM voice call from my Bold to my Passport.

    BBM Voice DOES work on the Bold!

    Here's a quote where David found BBM voice worked on wifi after shutting off cellular radio...
    Great find I wasn't aware of. Even better if BBM voice "counts"...

    Interesting: When I ran that little experiment this AM, I was in an airline lounge at SeaTac
    . Here at the house, I had no trouble making a BBM Voice call with the cellular radio on.

    So it very much depends on cellular condition on both phones, then.

    To be clear: On a BlackBerry 10 device, I (or anyone) can place or receive BBM Voice calls without wi-fi (although in my experience, using wi-fi can really help the audio quality for overseas calls).

    On a BBOS device like the 9900, you must have wi-fi on for BBM Voice. What I found was that using a public wi-fi hotspot, I also had to turn off the cellular -- I'm not at all sure why. In my home, I could use BBM Voice on the Bold without turning off the cellular.
