    Asking, what am I to do with my Passport S E in supercondition after stopping/finishing OS10? Is there any use of this device? Will it even be useful for something?

    Why not keep using it the same way as you do now until you can't. No one knows for sure what will happen for definite but if you enjoy using the passport and it works for your needs keep it. Next year will be here soon enough so we will all be sure then. Maybe a good idea to start backing up what you need for changing to a new device when the time comes. Hopefully if all else fails next year we can still use it on wifi.

    Your device will work as a phone, sms and email client. Just to be on the safe side, disable the Blackberry protect on the phone and on the website, before EOL 31.12.2019.
    Blackberry ID, BBM, Protect, Password Keeper cloud sync and Assistant will probably go off
    Browse the forums a bit, you'll find a lot of topics discussing the same.

    K1 is my primary device. I use Passport as an audio streamer (speakers still awesome), the calculator, and CB10 app.

    How to do this? And is this really necessary?

    Go into setting on your phone, and log on to the BlackBerry Protect website with your BBID...

    It's a precaution at this point, only really necessary if/when they shutdown all the servers and you phone can't validate you BBID or Protection status. Not really sure what will happen if you have theft protection on, and a situation arises where it can't validate...

    Hey Vlad,

    You can keep doing whatever you are doing now with it if you wish. The only thing we know for certain is shutting down is Blackberry World. Others will tell you other things, but they are speculating. (Dunt's advice is a good precaution however.)

    Beyond that, most have said, we have no idea what’s happening after 12/31/2019 so most comments are just precautionary...

    Precautions are always good. But there have been implications, if not straight out suggestions or predictions, that suddenly BB10 phones will stop working as of 12:00 a.m. on 1/1/2020. The only thing we KNOW with certainty is that Blackberry World is shutting down. Anything else is speculation.

    Not by any trusted members, mods or ambassadors that I’ve seen.... we’ve been fair about that...
