    How is navigation on the classic? I don't use a lot of apps on my iPhone but I rely heavily on google maps for navigation and traffic info. Is it possible to get google maps fully functioning on the classic and if so does it perform well?
    Navigation works fine on the Classic. You can indeed get google maps loaded and working on all BB10 devices.

    Correct. I loaded it via SNAP. The only thing I'm unable to do is log in to my account with Google services, but everything else works well.

    I really want to like the Classic (great keyboard, great form factor), and I owned one for a couple of weeks. What's preventing me from liking it is the outdated hardware. I have a Note 4 and a Passport, which is my work phone, and the sluggishness of the Classic compared to modern flagships completely ruined the experience for me. I would come back in a heartbeat if BlackBerry addressed this in a future release.

    IMHO, this is one thing that Apple does really well; by controlling the UI and software, it's able to maximize performance from relatively outdated specs. BlackBerry does this as well, but only for its own apps and not for the sideloaded Android ones (and without these, the apps are non existent on BlackBerry).

    Yeah I love the size and form factor of the classic, I love the keyboard, and the hub. I've had my Classic for a week now coming from an iPhone 5 and still not sure if I want to keep the classic. If the processor was a bit faster and the camera was a little better it would be an awesome phone all around.

    Awesome read!! I have had the same reply, twice, from sales associates regarding BlackBerry. I got a little nasty with them.

    Verizon reps hate Blackberry but that seems to be more out of ignorance than any legitimate reasoning.

    I couldn't get used to the note 4, having used the note 2, note 3 and believe me I really loved the LG G2 more than the notes.. I sold the notes the iphones kept the LG G2, since I've been on the Passport for a couple of months now and I have no regrets, there is one app that I wish it worked on the Passport which is Truckers Path and I just couldn't make it work, other than that.. it works perfect for me, I use BlackBerry maps over Google maps and I am not having any issues.. I was on the edge of getting the cobalt classic but I find I really love my BlackBerry Passport.. to each his/her own.

    Actually it's more of people not even trying the phones before they make their inexperienced opinions.. Tmobile and ATT reps say the same

    Nice post. Now that you can load Google Play just about every app you need runs on the Classic. Banking, airline and the Starbucks apps were the ones I missed most...

    I had the Q10, until it went into the pool. Went to the iPhone 6, giving it to my daughter today as soon as my classic arrives. I love the keyboard and BB10. Gotta go back!!

    Pools seem to hate on BlackBerry devices.. I've read common issues with BlackBerry and pools not getting along.. Why can't we all just get along?

    Yes, well excuse this unladylike expression, but f*** them, seriously. They are commission-based retail sellers and they don't want to sell me their product based on their personal bias? That is beyond lame sales skills and recognition, especially when they clearly aren't familiar with their own product, otherwise they wouldn't be smirking because they'd realize what a great tool a Blackberry is, despite it's mainstream reputation.

    Grrrrr....old woman grumbling....grrrr.
    I would have been an AT&T customer but when I asked about getting a Torch the guy insisted I wanted an Android phone. When it became clear that I wasn't interested in HIS preference, he asked why I wanted a BlackBerry. There's a few reasons, but the simplest answer was "the keyboard." That was enough to shut him down for a minute, then he informed me I could get that Motorola phone with the BB look-alike keyboard, but that I would have to go to Verizon to get it. I thanked him and left.

    Ended up just buying a 9930 off a guy I work with.

    For what it's worth, here is my 2 cents.

    Well made device with great form factor (and I like bb10). However, it is definitely under powered... mine lags a lot. The battery life is also not great most of the time.

    I use the Bank of America app from Google Play Store. I patched it with Cobalt's Play Service Patcher, the app works perfectly.
    Same with Google Maps.

    OKAY, so this post was intended as an active thread to help iPhone users with questions about making the switch.

    I am about to head into 4 weeks of 60+ hour workweeks while also getting ready for my own wedding so I will not have much free time! There are plenty of previous iPhone users on here, and I hope they will pick up the slack for me. Otherwise, please keep posting questions and I will be back at the end of September and will try to answer any posts that didn't receive a response!

    Sure that was a real person.

    Saludos.
