    Hi there... I am still discovering the new baby!
    I'll look through this thread and may contribute to explain the uncleared questions my way...

    But give me some time... a week or so ;-)
    Nah, as soon as possible!

    Cheers ;-)

    Is there a way to turn on the flashlight by shortcut?

    Using the volume up/down buttons maybe?
    Yes, you can set it to your quick settings

    Vital for some: the Passport fits into regular jeans' pockets! (front and back)!

    One handed use is possible on the screen (surfing/clicking), but difficult if not impossible on the keyboard!

    No games for me here... I mean I play no games!

    I was wondering if there is a Google Map alternative and a Music Player that scrobbles to last.fm? Those are the features i will miss coming from android.
    Just dl the native google mapsbapp and I use rad.io for last.fm stream.

    Besides the usual questions about Android apps, I would love to know how it works together with another BB10 device:

    If I set up the Passport as a new device, next to my Q10, with the same BBID what happens to BBM? Can I use things like Groups and Channels on both at the same time, or will one be "locked out" completely?
    What is my best course of action, setting up Passport as a completely new device or switching devices using BB Link?
    Experience dictates here! If you set up with a complete.ly new bbid y.ou may have trouble sync contacts and calendar due to previous settings not recognized. Always use yer existing bbid combined with bblink to perform a devic switch to make sure all y.our information follows seemleSsly!

    Question:

    When swiping left across the keyboard itself to delete a word you just typed (in email, doc, etc), if you swipe with two (or three) fingers, will it delete two (or three) words (as with touchscreen devices like z10)?

    I saw in a demo it will delete one with one finger swipe, just wondering if they carried this up from other 10 devices.

    Finger swipe control and speed will determine how many words are deleted

    Multi word deleting is done through the virtual keyboard: Open the symbols through @123-key and swipe with multiple fingers to the left.
    Swiping on the physical keys only does one word at a time.

    When in bedside mode is the entire screen lit or just the time. I like that my Z30 only shows the numbers and the rest of the screen is black.

    About using the Passport while lying in bed:
    Every one has his method. But this way, the device does not flip or fall. I use both hands this way. For the photo, I kept it one handed, but in reality I use my two hands.
    Notice how we see cieling and lamp, it's almost above my chest/head... No problems here to hold the device!

    Photo and Post with my Q10 ;-)

    Probably a silly question but how do you add a new city to Weather? When I click on add a new city it goes to a blank page and I enter the city in the "add city" box but nothing happens and I have to hit cancel to get back to the weather page.

    Enter the city name and -press- enter. Then it will start searching.

    Since the screen is LED rather than AMOLED, black pixels are still turned on. So, in bedside mode there is a faint black glow for the whole screen, while only the clock shows the numbers in red. Arguably a less energy efficient situation than on the Z30; there's no denying that. But Bedside mode still is great for late night peeks at the clock, and it by no means is obtrusively bright.

    Guys, is the swipe down in an app to "zoom out" only on the Passport?

    As I am trying out the app "between" on my Q10, and there is no such feature.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it's because of 10.3

    Hey guys,

    i am just wondering if the notification LED is changable in color?
    Maybe with a specific app?

    For example: blinking green for whatsapp, blue for facebook and red for email?

    Thank you!

    Hi there. You could download apps like BeBuzz or Hub++ for such feature. Personally I prefer BeBuzz and it's great that I get free download when I purchased it on my Bold 9900.

    Coming from Bold 9900, I always found typing on it feels very cramped and I would felt some sore pain on my fingers on long typing session. I wonder whether using the Passport would alleviate such issue. Not that I have a big hands but still...

    Out of curiosity, what is the width for each key in metric unit?

    I've had a blackberry for as long as I have had a phone got z10 now and I love it but it's old and needs replacing now. Problem is I love the passport but really don't want to go back to a keyboard again i just want a touch screen. I'm thinking of moving to Samsung now. I hope it's not a mistake
