    Anyone knows whether the Passport is also equipped with the sophisticated Paratek antenna?

    the Z30 has it and it works well in most situations though. hopefully the Passport as the new flagship will also have this piece of smart radio engineering inside its body.. otherwise hhm.. that will be quite a knock out compared to the soon-to-be-replaced-flagship Z30..

    but this phone is seriously HUGE & AWESOME in every way!

    As long as it works with good performance... who cares which antenna is used?

    Since it's the flagship Qwerty, I'm sure it will.

    My 3 girls have an iPhone. I have a z30 and my wife has a z10. I get great reception at the lake and my wife gets good reception. My 3 daughters get none. It's funny as hell to watch them walk around and find a spot there iPhone will work. They'll stand in the back of the truck, on the picnic tables. We are all on AT&T

    Rockin Z30 on 10.2.1.2947 on AT&T

    Hope Passport will have one reception is great on z30... and for me it is a main feature of BlackBerry to have a good reception

    Well, you're very correct of course, but also a bit silly. You know exactly why yvpan1 was asking specifically for the Paratek antenna!

    Anything new about this question?!

    And does somebody already have experience with the Passport in areas with low reception?!

    I believe Blaze's review said it does have one.
