    Just got my second BB Classic in mint condition. I finally feel safe now. I got 2nd Classic and my Z30 in the nightstand beside my Kimber Combat .45. I can sleep in peace. All is well...

    I think my iPhone 6 is somewhere downstairs...somewhere....

    Glad you're prepared, but hopefully the calamity doesn't happen and BB10 devices continue in some form.

    Should continue. Didn't JC say something about licensing out BB10? If that's the case, who would license it if even Blackberry themselves didn't use it in any devices.
    That being said, yes, I feel like I need to stock up too...

    I'm looking at the Classic on Amazon right now and debating ordering it. I moved to the iPhone a few months ago and while I am happy I miss BB10 every day. I always wanted the Classic. I figure even if BB10 dies within the year I can enjoy the ride on the Classic while it lasts.

    Do it up.
    The Classic is the best.

    I did! It will be here in a few weeks. I am excited. I will always adore this form factor. I've never been able to find another form factor and OS that can satisfy me as much.

    I hope you like it!

    Here are a few tips(thank Slagman)
    1. To minimize an app, press the call end button. Simple enough, but you can build on that. From the homescreen with the apps in active frame (minimized), highlighting one and pressing the back key will close it. So combine this with the fact that pressing call end will minimize it, if you want to outright close a program, all you have to do is press call end, then back, since it highlights the app you just minimized automatically. The benefits to this are that not only do you not need to move your thumb as much, but you can do this without looking at your phone. Swiping up and touching the x requires looking.
    2. While in an app, pressing the BB button will open the overflow menu (3 dots on the bottom right). If that menu has more than one page, simply swipe on the trackpad in the direction of the other page and it'll switch.
    3. To access the top menu inside apps, no more need to reach your thumb all the way to the top of the screen, simply long press the BB button.
    4. As long as the phone app isn't minimized (where you might have navigated away from the main phone log), when you bring up the phone app by pressing the call send button, the last call should be highlighted, so to quickly redial the last number, simply press the call send button twice.
    5. From the hub, holding the shift key and swiping up or down with the trackpad will start highlighting messages, let go of shift and you can start selecting messages that are not together by highlighting then pressing down on the trackpad. You can toggle already selected messages on and off by clicking on them. To cancel the selection, press the back button. Press the BB key to open the options for what you just highlighted.
    6. Long pressing with the trackpad does exactly what long touching on the touchscreen does. Trust me, this is super useful.
    7. To select text, just use the trackpad to where you want to start, then hold shift and swipe over the trackpad. Then to copy the text, just press the BB key to open the menu, "Copy" should be highlighted so you can just press the BB key again (basically press BB key twice). Then to paste the text, go to where you want to paste, and same thing, press BB key twice.
    8. In the camera, if you press and hold the trackpad, the camera will refocus, then when you let go of the trackpad it will take the photo.
    9. In an email, just press the BB button twice to send, unless you have text you have copied that haven't been pasted yet. If that's the case and you still want to send, make use of tip #2 and swipe in the direction of the "more" option on your trackpad, then hit the trackpad or BB key.

    Thank you! I'm familiar with BB10 but not with the tool belt accompanying it so a lot of those tips will be very useful.
