    Guys! Just got mine today... I am a BlackBerry user back then in 2008 then move to android and then to iphone. For quite sometimes. But I miss the sensation of using qwerty keyboard. Here I am again with my new BlackBerry classics.

    So here we are after never thinking I'd care much about BB or move from the latest and greatest, I finally got tired of the attention sinkhole and money pit that are modern smartphones and wanted something "new" but simple with a few key features. And honestly, I've always been a bit jealous of physical qwerty since I'm garbage at typing on smart touch screens.
    So, after a frustrating few months with a TOO basic flip, then an older 9780 that couldn't get on Tmobiles 4G so calls were awful, after getting Classic and dealing with blue light reboot-reset issue (which this community was where I thankfully found the solution), here I am. Happy as a clam and I hope I can have a phone like this as long as it's usable and practical for my needs.

    I am now "one of you"

    Hey all. Picked up a classic at a bargain price! Setting it up as we speak. I've got an iPhone but am coming from a Bold 9900 that I used a few years ago.

    Does anyone know of a BB10 app that will keep the LED notifications blinking for longer? I've heard of BeBuzz but can't find it on the BB store on the phone (am I searching incorrectly?)

    Any other ideas? Thanks.
    BeBuzz was a paid app. When BlackBerry took down the payment mechanism, all the paid apps went away unless you had already bought it. Some were resubmitted as free apps, but not this one.

    You would have to get someone to copy the app off their phone and send it to you. I have it but don't have any software installed on my computer for copying it.

    Someone mentioned the Hub being harder to get to than on the Bold, all you have to do is hit the end call button and swipe to the left on the trackpad.

    Cannot be done. The .bar would have to be obtained directly from the developer if possible. The app Unmissable (BBW free now) will do this but only for missed calls and missed texts. Still handy though!

    Just goy my Classic today. A $50 score off EBay and the phone is flawless.
    Set up was challenging compared to today’s phones but it’s a Blackberry Classic not current technology. I’ve rocked a KeyOne for the past few months but still wanted a Q20. Takes me back to my 7290 w/pull-up antenna Nextel days only better. I wanted something simple, no frills, talk, text, email. With my K1 I find myself wasting time on FB or Twitter. The Classic will be my daily driver until it croaks. I have a 2009 model Motorola Razor v9m I started to use but remembered the 14 key punches to get an “s”.
    Verizon was willing to activate it but I wised up and got the Q20 instead. Love this Blackberry!

    A little late but I got my Classic two months ago and I adore this thing, the look, the feel, the OS. Just a pity BB couldn't get BB10 to be a commercial success. I use my Classic to for communications e.g., phone calls, txts, emails and browsing as well as a few work related apps that work fine.

    Couldn't resist picking up another one, for £15 I couldn't be happier..
