    It has been many months now and I decided to check back on my original post from 2018. It appears that no new comments have been added. Link is displayed below. This doesn't surprise me since I can't imagine that many people are still using the BB Dtek60 in 2019. I figured that I was going to be the last BB user in Minnesota.

    Anyway, my streak with BlackBerry as my only brand of smartphone had to come to a grim end after a terrible experience with the Dtek60. Basically: the battery wouldn't hold much of a charge, the phone would get very hot, no OS update to Android 7 nor 8 nor 9, problems getting the phone to charge when plugged in and finally, I got locked out of the phone when I attempted a wipe because the phone insisted that my Google password was "less than 24 hours old", though it was 11 years old in truth.

    I have since sold my Dtek60 on ebay for "Parts, Not working" and have made the move to a Google Pixel 3 since it has a very similar footprint.

    So long, BlackBerry. We had quite a good run over the years with many great phones. I just didn't want to risk a repeat of the Dtek60's souring experience.

    I feel you.
    My DTEK60 is still going.
    No major issues, except the second battery also now down to 90% capacity after a year.
    I opted to not use the fast-charger, but my BB9900 charger instead.

    Else, it has eaten two SD cards since I had it, but I decided not to install apps on the 2nd one.
    Seems to last, so far.

    My DTEK60 is my very first Android phone.
    I have only had 2 Symbian and BBOS phones until this one.

    Only alternative seems to be the new Android Nokia's...

    Your last statement is the only sensible way to go.

    I did, never looked back.

    Smart man. One of the smartest things any DTEK60 owner can do is to not use the fast charger that came with the phone. Instead use the charger that came with any BB10 or BBOS phone.

    Doesn't the dtek60 use the type c charger which is newer than any bb10 charger? How does that work?

    They are talking about the block, not the cable.
