    But I need your help.
    If I buy the red passport, can I just use it with my wifi? or does it need to be activated first.
    Or could I go to T-Mobile and get it activated with them. I have a Z30 with Verizon and I just wanted to own this red beauty.
    Please help, thank you.

    I don't think you'll be able to use the Passport for phone calls unless you have a compatible sim card. But I guess you already know that. Wi-fi will work fine.

    Well, you'd be buying it outright from Shop BlackBerry, no? Then you would be able to use it on wi-fi without having to activate it Unless the issue becomes that T-Mobile or Verizon is SIM-Free. Either way, PULL THAT TRIGGER! The Red Passport is AMAZING and honestly stands out among the crowd

    You are missing out on the full capabilities of the phone if you don't have a service SIM activated. You can still use every other features of the phone though.

    you will need to use your BlackBerry ID when you set up the device with a WIFI network, and it will sqwawk about not having a SIM but apart from making telephone calls, everything works: you can install Skype and make calls to landlines for a fee of a few dollars a month.


    My SIM is in my Passport but I use my Z30 without a sim to check emails and test apps.

    Honestly, it's better buying it direct from BlackBerry anyways. Their phones are factory unlocked so you can activate it on almost any carrier (Dependent on if the carrier's frequencies are matching what the Passport SQW-001 are compatible with)! Not to mention you're usually saving some money by not having to pay carrier subsidies

    Thank you all I just pulled the trigger !!! I am so excited on getting the Original Passport in red, now that I saw what the AT&T one looks like. Not a fan of the curved edges...

    Thanks again guys! I'll post some pictures when I get it.

    Hope you get a flawless device with no physical build issues.
    I'm still dealing with BlackBerry and Digital River. Absolutely horrible service. The passport is a great phone and it was a mistake to give up my black carrier provided passport for the red one from shopblackberry.

    Red one has a space bar that feels as though it's non existent, the white balance is way off and there's light bleed on the left side of the keyboard. Other than that it works great. I would live with it if I didn't spend so much on a flagship phone.
