    Hey guys -

    Interested in buying the Passport but have been hesitant, since BBM Voice/Video doesn't work in UAE. So was planning on buying it from Qatar or the US instead.

    Can anyone from Qatar confirm that the BBM Voice/Video works in the Passport sold there?

    I'm suspecting that SQW100-1 is the model that is sold in Qatar, but read somewhere that the SQW100-3 is sold in the US. Any difference in the two model numbers?

    There is only one model of the Passport currently for sale, and that's the SQW100-1.

    I doubt point of sale has any effect on BBM Voice/Video working. Your carriers are clamping down on it, probably at the government's behest.

    I believe that SQW100-1 is the only version released world wide supporting a wide variety of band widths.

    SQC100-1 is not even a passport to my knowledge W is windmere for the passport, and C is coffee series which is an unreleased low end device similar to the Q5.

    As for bbm voice, it's blocked in the UAE by the carriers due to government laws and regulations, I don't know why fiber and tango work while BBM is blocked.

    Hope this helps.

    SQC is the designation for the Classic. Specifically, SQC100-1 is the European/ROW model.
