    My girl got her first smart phone, after ten mistrusting years, but now her old phone didn't work anymore and something new was strictly needed.

    I bought a Z30. I had to import it from Germany, I couldn't manage to get a new one in Switzerland. OK, now we have an unlocked (!) one for about 300, much cheaper than my own locked one.

    I made a one hour seminar with her just for introduction. The basic swipes: bottom-up, on the left the Hub, on the right the apps, what is wifi? what is cellular?and so on. I showed her the Hub, sent her some messages, let she send something back and so on. Showed her also the most used apps.

    Pros:
    - the learning curve was steep but endurable. She never operated a smart phone before, but she got all this, I tested her next day )
    - the initial startup of an unlocked phone was great, I thought it would be much more complicated but everything worked from the first moment, I also got the first OS update very soon

    Cons:
    - I wisely switched OFF automatic updates, I'm sure I did. Some hours later I executed the first OS update to 10.2.1.3442 and after this I had to reboot the device. But then the automatic updates have already been switched ON and I did recognize this not before two days (!) later. But this was the reason for a high amount of background cellular data usage. Damned! Now she has only 5MB left in her data volume anymore for the next five days. This obfuscates our happiness a bit.
    - no Flash .... RIM, look at this face!

    But I'm sure she will manage all this. Her first finding: "So I don't need the laptop anymore?"

    The z30 is still one of my favorite devices from BlackBerry, big screen, well built and excellent call quality. I will still be using one if it wasn't for the passport being released.

    Interesting. Is this option also important for the use of Flash in the Evolution browser?

    I have z10 and I love it very much and guess z30 must be a step better. My only request to BlackBerry guys is that they shud come up with a BlackBerry z30 with dual sim too...
