    Should've bought a KEY² or KEY² LE. Passport is ok for basic (calls/sms/email/PDA functions) use.
    BB10 is a dead OS, will be on EOL status by the end of this year.

    Welcome to CrackBerry. Passport should be good on phone calls, text, email and some web browsing. ART is limited to 4.3 so don’t expect much for app ecosystem dependency on Android ports or the APKs since 4.4 and higher isn’t possible.
    @TrumpetTiger has many BB10 specific informational posts and solutions

    Passport is a really good and capable device. Of course it's limited by its age and so on. However,your needs are crucial. Except for using it for text, email, sms as said above, I use it for a lot of things: social (Facebook, instagram), media (pods, Netflix, play tv, youtube, deezer),messenging, looking up public transport, navigate, parking apps (android apps) . Some apps are third part, others android.

    I suggest you take your time and learn to know your phone and then browse and read on this forum. You'll find a lot of info and ideas. Then ask again.

    Check BBW and find relevant apps. Download before it close down at the end of this year.

    Enjoy your Passport!

    Get used to using it without additional native apps, as BlackBerry World will be shut down at the end of this year.

    But you can use Yalp to get some older Android apps from the Google Play Store.

    Hey Mac,

    Feel free to PM me (click my name in orange at the top of the post, then PM in blue) if you have any specific questions or concerns, or just post in the forums here and we'll help as much as we can.

    My main advice is to disregard those who claim BB10 is dead, useless, or otherwise not worth it. There are many native apps that work well (some of which have been released by their devs and so will not be affected by the Blackberry World shutdown) and Android apps tend to fill the gap nicely. The Passport is a great phone; I'm sure you'll love it!

    Probably didn’t research the 12/31/2019 EOL message enough or doesn’t understand the impact. Confused though, as does mention the BB10 ecosystem which suggests kind of familiarity.....

    Good luck OP, I see @TrumpetTiger has reached out as well...

    Use outlook for your calendar, email and contacts and get evernote native app working and connected to your outlook mail. Learn how to use hub and evernote for sharing.

    For the Stock Browser.

    Download the BEOL browser from this thread. It's an internet browser that doesn't have many bells or whistles, but it works.

    Although Kiwi browser is a bit faster, has a much higher compatibility rating, and is more secure with TLS 1.3.

    It also incorporates ad-blocking and a bottom nav bar.

    Hi Conite. I tried that browser when you first recommended it on these forums. Unfortunately, it didn't work perfectly on websites I needed it to, while the BEOL browser did. Maybe that has changed recently, but the BEOL browser is handling everything I throw at it so far. Cheers.

    What website? It's a chromium browser, and should be able to render anything.

    I download it again to try out, but the copy and paste function is really messed up. It only remembers the first thing I copy. Subsequent copies don't register and it just pastes the first thing.

    The good news is that the current version of Firefox browser is actually working really nice with my Passport now. I never thought it would work so well.

    Hi @mikael11.. I am using BB Passport as my secondary phone. My primary phone is Samsung Galaxy S9+. Yes, I use it mainly for email and to read articles. I was quite surprised when I found my fav app working here which is Blinkst. I badly want protonmail and lastpass in my passport. I tried to download the apk versions, but they are not opening and are crashing everytime.. any suggestions??

    For proton mail read this http://forums.crackberry.com/showthread.php?t=1157921

    Lastpass, I don't know what it is, maybe some other one do!
    Edit: I figure it is a password app. Well I find the native stock app to be very good, but maybe it lacks functions you need. I don't know how old lastpass is but try to find an earlier version compatible with android 4.3 or lower and you may have a chance.
