    Ordered it Thursday. Pretty excited as the only cell phone I've ever had is my daughters old BB Bold900...which I totally loved. especially that chicklet keyboard ! I will miss that..... but Bell Canada stopped supporting BB data plans etc.... just figured I should upgrade. Here is a question: Will the Dtek50 come with up to date updates ?
    Since it's release there were some updates bring it to the September security patch from google. The update was 450MB so it surely had software updates from Blackberry as well.

    You can use siwftkey for that also and the prediction is great
    I actually use SwiftKey on my Asus tablet, it's pretty good.

    But I MUCH prefer the BlackBerry keyboard. Looks better, I'm more accurate with it, and I just love that swiping up!

    Yes. The Dtek50 is my first real android. I did buy a Sony Aqua M4 in April, but I never used it as my main phone. I was waiting for MM to be updated on it. By that time the Dtek50 came out. Needless to say, I'd rather have the Dtek50. So I sold the Sony.

    Nope. Just the Z30 and Dtek50. Regardless. Keep them both! Cheers.

    Is the DTEK50 encryption activated by default?
    Edit: I just found out that it is. Thanks anyway.

    Always was a BlackBerry-curious . Owned mostly Androids. Short romance with iOS. DTEK50 came out just when I needed a new phone and I am happy to have my first and definitely not the last BB.

    went from 8530 to iphone 4s to z10 to classic back to z10 and recieved my dtek50 end of september. more than happy with it! dropped it a few times on concrete already and no issues besides the known bluetooth issue. That was resolved with an app. Also found myself a quick charge 2.0 that gets it from 0 to 80 in less than 45 mins. I just orderd a 128gb SD card as well and will report back on it. That should be enough room for some apps and music right?

    Does that not refer to other phone? Isn't the launcher pre-loaded on the Dtek50?

    Hi All, so i did it...got the Dtek 50! I had a passport SE before which was my ultimate phone but the apps were;t supported and had to change. Ended up sadly on an samsung S7 still nice phone but not a BB. I tried the priv and didn't like the keyboard at all or the price and returned it so was waiting for another bb qwerty phone to be released. I figured why not ditch the S7, get the Dtek and when the new qwerty (if?) comes out i can get that as well
    SO, 1 day into this and the dtek is nice. I use it for business and works good, fast enough, typing is good and not expensive. All in all good phone BUT i have to say the battery is a little small for heavy users otherwise don't be afraid to buy one if you are considering. Build is nice, VERY light and thin if that's your thing. Camera seems good but i don't buy a phone based on camera/photo capabilities.

    Now, just waiting for the Rome(?) qwerty model which i hope has a keyboard like the passport/classic and NOT the privy.

    glad to be back on BB

    Officially ordered my Dtek50 just now from crackberry, coming with the powerbank as well for the same price as other online retailers without the powerbank. I'll get it by tuesday. Can't wait, hopefully my experience is like many others in the forums, and hopefully the battery will last me a day.

    I went from an iPhone 6s Plus to a DTEK50.... cold turkey! Usually when I get new Blackberry phones I always end up getting that itch to go back to iPhone, but for some reason I don't now. sure the battery sucks and playing certain games really drag, but everything else is great. I like being able to customize the mess out my phone.
