    Waiter tonight: "Is that a phone?" When I turned it around, he said, "Wow; a BlackBerry! I really like BlackBerry phones."

    I took a second and showed him the Peek, the Hub, and the Pinch. He seemed genuinely amazed -- but of course, one never knows with someone angling for a tip.

    This is because I find women prefer the touch of a physical keyboard much more then men who prefer a larger screen size.


    Most people in general though love the form factor of this phone and say "wow I haven't seen a BlackBerry in forever" then they say they miss their old BlackBerry but couldn't stand the small screen. I wish BlackBerry would make a new passport soon!

    The other day I was picking up lunch, set my passport down to pay and the girl says" how do you like your new BlackBerry " it took me awhile to register... I said excuse me. How do you like the new BlackBerry ? I said well I really like my phone but it's a year old. It threw me off because to me the passport is not new.

    Then she went on to explain she just got her first smartphone recently. She does get points for recognizing that it is a BlackBerry.

    One guy at work when he saw my SE (since move to black but that's another story) actually just laughed. Hehe. But he uses an iphone 5 for work and he's useless on productivity.

    I've got in the same situation. A lady in my company asked me what type of calculator I have. Then she still thought I was joking and wanted to touch it (Passport SE) to be sure it's really a phone.

    Lol! Don't they always want to touch it!

    Can't wait to get the SE.

    It's a side-effect of our "social media" society that because everyone _can_ share their opinions about any and every damn thing, offering unsolicited, nosy opinions about something as personal as a mobile phone is somehow considered acceptable.

    Yes, I appreciate the irony.

    I've had my passport SE for about 3 days now and every time I take it out of pocket, people go "wow..what is that?" Some people just love it others aren't too keen on the size and design. Most of them said it's very unique and looks very professional.

    Even my wife likes the look - she didn't like the look of z30 or th lumia 950 I'm going to return this week. She's quite picky about how the phone looks.

    Others out and about: is that a mini computer?
    I didn't know Blackberry made anything new like this.


    Mostly positive response that I get, and people are curious and like it.

    My son lives in a different city and we text very offen. I hadn't mentioned I am using a BlackBerry Passport until he made some comments about Sony.

    His reaction was:
    -you are lying. That company went out of bussines

    So I took a picture with another phone and showed him his own comment displayed on my passport

    Then he continued to ask questions about the device for the next 20 minutes

    Find it shocking that people care so much for a phone. In my entourage, not so many people cared. My mother just asked what the hell is that and why is it so wide? My brother similar, but he played a few minutes with it and I think he liked it a bit. Some of my friends were impressed, really liked the design, some thought it was too wide but most of them didnt care. A lot of them still have older phones, so that is not their priority and they really didnt ask or looked weirdly at it. I am generally still baffled at some stories on here, I dont comment on other people phones, no matter what brand or model.
