    Around April 2013 I gave up on my old crappy Android phone and came over to BB10. I was always interested in Blackberry phones, because I believe that they looked and acted like very efficient devices. My main plan was to get a Bold 9900 from T-Mobile. But I found out they had this touch screen phone called the Z 10. I thought it had a rugged aesthetic and the OS was all about efficacy.

    So I asked the lady is there a version of the Z10 that looked like the 9900 and she told me about the Q10 but won't be coming out till next month. So I was like okay, ill just wait till that comes out and ill pick it up. 2 weeks latter, my phone died on me. So I went in and got the Z10 cause why not, I can try out a full touch screen phone. See what's it like. I fell in love with it for reasons that I can explain, but may this even more long to read. But let me just say when I saw the Q10 come, I was heavily disappointed, there was no trackpad and the keyboard felt weird. So I stuck with the Z10 until about last week.

    That was when I got the Classic in the mail. I been using it, and although I wish it had a slightly better processor, but I've been loving it ever since. The trackpad, the 4 row keys. It gives more options on how I want to do my Telephony like stuff. And the Keyboard. I can't believe making it slightly bigger would make it all the more comfortable (and addicting) to type on. I guess that's why they call them crackberries.

    So I need to ask is there anyone here who never had a old legacy blackberry phone, who never own a Blackberry (BB10 or otherwise). Who came on here just for the Classic, I know I wanted too.

    That's great, and thanks for sharing your story. BlackBerry needs more customers like you who are willing to give it a shot...

    I'm planning on getting a Classic, but waiting until AT&T releases it. I currently have an Iphone 5 and have never used a blackberry before.

    Nice story regarding migrating from another OS to BlackBerry OS. I migrate myself on June of 2013. Tried many android phones and couldn't find what fits me. During BlackBerry 9900 time, I always wanted one but couldn't afford it at that time. My first BlackBerry was Z10 and like you I also fell in love with it. Since then I never looked back and pretty much own all BlackBerry phones.

    Via BlackBerry Classic 10.3.1.1450 on Blazin fast T-Mobile LTE.

    Yup, that's me, in my case I came over from a dino Motorola Krazor on it's last gasps. LOL! Love my Classic! Sure a couple of tweaks here and there would be nice, but quite an easy entry to a very smart phone for me. Bought it on release date Dec 17th.
