    I would like to see the virtual toolbelt disappear on the Classic for example, in an email as it takes up screen space and all the functions are also found on keyboard shortcuts.
    Anyone agree?

    Totally agree with you, it takes up a needless amount of space.

    Do you mean the line with the back button only?
    This is gone in the latest 10.3.1 OS.

    I mean the belt with REPLY, REPLY ALL, FORWARD symbols at the bottom of this screen shot.

    I think it should be optional. I got used to a hybrid mode of operating my Classic, partly on the belt and partly on the screen. This is very convenient and I don't want to miss that.

    100%. Funny thing is, I thought I'd like it again, but after not using it on Q10 and getting used to the swipe gestures, I find I never really use it now. Minus the belt, BlackBerry could add another almost 1/2 inch to the screen real estate.

    That's ridiculous... many people don't use keyboard shortcuts at all, where would you go to find these buttons if not on the screen?

    Also, don't they hide when you scroll down?

    Mad_Mdx: no the virtual belt doesn't hide at all. See screenshot of an email half way down.

    Classic virtual tool belt-concept-design-blackberry-q30-con-tastiera-fisica-qwerty-1.jpg

    This is an old picture someone made. (Classic) - (toolbelt) - (unnecessary logo on top) + (use up extra space) = amazing design.

    Add Passport specs to it = perfect phone

    Update: I thought you guys were complaining about the physical toolbelt. I'll leave the picture because it looks nice.

    That's the perfect phone for me. Thanks for posting.

    My original post was referring to the virtual tool belt appearing on the Classic in (for example) emails when there is a physical toolbelt and keyboard short cuts that we all know and love.
