    hello everyone! I'm planning on buying a used blackberry Porsche design p9983 for 300 to 400 bucks (Canada) and I wanted to know your opinion on the phone. I've been a blackberry fan forever and this is my fav. It's not the fastest or the cheapest but it will make me very happy.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    That's a lot of money for a phone with the same internals as a regular Passport, no?

    It's actually a beefed up Q10.

    OP, it comes down to prestige. If it makes YOU feel better to own one, then who are we to say.

    Otherwise it's a 4 year old device with little app support.

    This is a used one that says "not for sale" on the side... Do you know what that means? Don't want to buy it if it's fishy. Thanks for the reply friend

    I wouldn't buy it if it wasn't fishy, let alone with a not for sale on it. Probably some ex-employee/dealer stock.

    Do you think something is wrong with it?

    Impossible to know whether it will work, or be black listed. Certainly a high risk, unless you are a collector, and never intend to activate it.

    That is the key sentence for me. If it's going to make you very happy then go forward it. 😃 it's definitely a very premium looking device and with 64GB of storage, it even rivals flagship device like the Galaxy S8!

    The 'not for sale ' does worry me a little though. But if you just want it as a collectors item. Then it's fine.

    Considering it should cost around $1,500 you getting a great deal!

    Anything not for sale is iffy, you don't really know the provenance of it.

    But since it's still a Q10 in a gaudy shell, save your money.

    I've seen a couple of these devices for sale in Ottawa on kijiji last winter. I guess they were handed out to employees or something. I don't think you will have trouble getting it working , it will be network unlocked and it should work as advertised. Just wasn't meant for retail. But honestly . The 9983 is not worth much these days . The classic is probably a more appealing phone for better price

    I agree, but if you are not up for the risk...send me the listing. I'm a buyer as a collector . I see opportunity knocking
