    I am also on T Mobile and I am going to look at the AT&T model today and if I like it, I will probably buy one, but I need to know if I buy it outright at the full price can AT&T unlock it for me?

    From what I've heard, ATT is unlike other carriers are requires you to have an account with them, even to purchase the phone outright. So this means openning an account and then canceling it or purchasing a prepaid card. I have also heard that even if the phone is purchased outright, they will not unlock it for 60 days. In the T-Mobile thread, it appears as though you can purchase a 3rd party unlock code earlier than that. Hopefully someone on here who has purchased the ATT version for use on another network can chime in.

    It's nice, but I prefer the square version.

    Question to those who received an AT&T Passport shipped from AT&T rather than a store purchase. Did those that did received a sealed box?

    I received mine on Tuesday and the seal was broken on the box...actually 2 seals were broken. The original seal, please another seal of dime size with QC on it. I had a major problem with bluetooth dropping out on my Ford F150 SYNC2 that I have never had with a Blackberry device (Passport Gen1, Z30 or Z10). It has me wondering if I got one that had issues before.

    Any way, that one is in a box headed back to AT&T with another one on the way since it was only 2 days old.

    So I am now back in the waiting camp till this time next week. Also...I am going to mod my Sedio Surface holster to work with the AT&T SQW100-3 naked. The height of the naked SQW100-3 is the same as the Surface case. So I need to mod the holster to hold the phone snugly...which I think is doable with little effort. That is till Sedio has a product which I understand is in the works.

    I missed the keyboard too coming from Z10. Particularly the shortcut buttons like N and P to see the next or previous message in the hub without swiping back to the hub. Also like the interactive keyboard. Was never a big fan of smudging up my screen all the time.

    My wife is an ardent Samsung fan, but says she really likes it. My neighbor strayed from BB after the Torch. He's thinking about getting a Passport now.

    Mine was sealed, that would make me question why the seals were broken.

    Have had mine since launch day last Friday...AT&T is the worst customer service in the biz, but this phone is an absolute joy to use and gets better the more I use it. One thing I did do is turn off the keyboard scroll...it makes the editing ball float away when editing text. The keyboard scroll feature is perfect for someone coming over from z10/30 since the flicking is identical, and I turn it back on to demo web scrolling to people. I do miss the numbers being on the keypad still, and wish they would have just gave us the shift button. Came from Q10 >9900>9000>7230>5810.

    I've had mine since Friday and love it. Something I just learned the other day...if you swipe down on the keyboard the virtual keyboard comes up and you'll notice all the numbers and such have little letters on them that correspond to the physical keyboard so you just hit that key for the number or character. Also if tap and hold the "@123" virtual key the same thing happens.

    There is an awesome thread here http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...d-tips-965730/ with all types of keyboard tips.

    Same here. Both seals were open, but I've had that happen when ordering online from AT&T. Perhaps they do a validation prior to shipping to avoid claims of receiving an empty box? Since I've had it happen before, i didn't question it. And the Passport was clearly new and never used.

    My just-received-1-hour-ago PP was in an unsealed box. AT&T has to insert the SIM card somehow... *(if you're getting a new line)

    Same with my Amazon-delivered Classic. But on that phone I was installing my own SIM.

    Lol wasn't trying to be rude if it came off that way! I believe it was due to a slight change in the internals of the phone.

    No problem, would definitely be interested if she doesn't like it! I'm hoping that she does though as it looks to be a great device!

    Same thoughts here. The phone had all the new stickers, but there had been 2 seals (the standard large 1.5" circle and a smaller dime size with QC over the larger one). The 2 seals both broken did not seem right. Anyway, I am hoping that the Bluetooth issue I had was a one time thing. I spend a lot of time traveling and my original Passport for 5 months never had a Bluetooth problem.

    Thanks for verifying.

    Congratulation to my American neighbours. I like the look of the AT&T Passport too, but I am enjoying my original Big Red at the moment . The Passport is a great phone. I hope it does well in the States.

    No problem! At first I wasn't too sure about the case, but I'm starting to really like it. It gives a good grip without adding a lot of bulk.

    I got my AT&T yesterday and I still have the OP. My opinion:
    It looks good, just a little larger than the OP but we are talking about mm., so not too much. Looks like a fat Classic but it's fine also. What it is remarkable different is the keyboard, it is absolutely best, smoother.
    So, besides the look and the keyboard I do not see any other difference.
    My conclusion:
    Both phones are great!!! It's all about what you like, if you like square or round. That's it.
    I think Passport is the best phone today. I tested the Classic but, no offense for Classic lovers it looks so cheap for me. So plastic. Definitely not the quality we expect for a company high quality like Blackberry. Looks like a cheap phone for the cheap masses.
