    Shopcrackberry didn't have any cables for purchase.

    What did you do?

    Yes it's a BlackBerry. If you have something bad to say... speak to Easton!

    I don't think you can, since there is no micro HDMI port. You have to get Slimport adapter/cable.

    Does this mean we can't charge the phone and show HDMI movies or presentation at the same time?

    The slimport adaptor allows for charging through microusb while using the hdmi out.

    Can you use any slim port adapter even those that do not reference BlackBerry? I've seen many that say good for Nexus, LG, Asus but not BlackBerry.

    Can I use these?

    You don't. You'll need a slimport adapter to connect via hdmi.

    Yes, you can use any slimport cable, even if it doesn't mention Blackberry.

    However, be careful if they mention Samsung, because they use MHL. The cable is very similar, but it is a different technology and will not work.

    I bought one of those for 8-9 $ (slimport adapter) and when I first got my Passport the adaptor worked although I only had it working for about 5-10 minutes just as a test. Since that time, I have installed 2 leaks and am now on 10.3.1.1154 and now the adapter does not work at all. I am wondering if anyone else can confirm to me that their adaptor works on the .1154 leak. If so, I would warn people about buying these cheap adaptors on ebay. Or possibly I just bought a dud adaptor. Anyway would be nice to get a bit of feedback on this. Thanks to anyone in advance who can check for me.

    OK, it seems all the adaptors are 'cheap'

    Can someone recommend an adaptor that is not cheap and is of good quality?

    I got a Slimport to HDMI cable, and also an HDMI to microHDMI adapter so I can use my old microHDMI cables.

    Now my old cables serve as extension cables. I leave it hooked up to my TV......except I also just purchased a miracast HDMI adapter so I'm not even using my slimport since Miracast is awesome and I don't have to fidget with a cable!!

    Honestly, I paid a little more for mine. $16 off Amazon. And it doesn't work well.

    Not sure if it's the phone, or the cord. I assume the cord.

    I think you should go cheaper, if it stops working, you can just get another.

    I'm considering investing in a nice miracast adaptor now.
