    On January 23rd, I spoke directly to BlackBerry about RMA'ing my Passport. They stopped replying. On the 29th I followed it up and was told they were still communicating with another internal department. It is now February 8th with no further contact from BlackBerry.

    I can really see they value their customers and that customer service is high up there on their customer values /sarcasm.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Unfortunately, you're right. BlackBerry's warranty and customer service have definitely gone downhill. It's too bad.

    First step to being a 'niche player' as they call themselves is to deliver 'niche-level' service: personalised, prompt, and friendly. They obviously have no idea how much great service can actually do for you... and it's so simple.

    That's great! Blackberry support across the border here in Singapore is almost non existent.

    yes, for device bought through/with brightstar warranty. but for ingram micro set, blackberry xpert centre won't entertain, unless you produce receipt as proof of purchase, even though your device already in their database.... something must be done here...

    To be fair, BlackBerry wasn't even selling their own devices directly when they started going downhill.

    But you are right. Digital River and the RMA department are a nightmare. Though usually the older the device is, the quicker things go. I sent my Z30 to them on Monday, and yesterday, Saturday, I got a brand new one from Fed Ex.

    There always seems to be some hangup though. Like their system was down two weeks ago and took a while to generate a new form. Or the representatives have to wait for a while to give you updates from the repair plant. It's not a fun experience.

    And business/enterprise focus would have meant better than average consumer level service.

    I regret getting the passport now. I think I'm over it. There is nothing extraordinary.

    Battery life is Meh, os experience is Meh. Keyboard perhaps but swift ain't bad either. Camera is a disappointment for a flagship device.

    Hoping to see some major changes by Chen.

    My only experience was with my PlayBook. It was a month past the warranty and they shipped me a brand new one. Go Blackberry.

    Totally agreeing with you, it is the same here in India, no dedicated support.

    I don't agree at all. Have sent my z30 under warranty for repair and they gave me a new one. Then new one had some problems after 6 months and they replaced even though it was out of warranty

    BlackBerry used to have a great warranty back in the days I was there.

    Bring your device into your carrier and they would do an advance exchange for you. They would order a replacement device from BlackBerry. It would arrive the next business day. You would give them your BlackBerry and they would give you the replacement right on the spot.

    They only things they checked for were obvious physical abuse and water damage. Aside from that it was no questions asked. Fast and simple.

    Now it takes months to get your phone back and in the mean time you're stuck with a crappy loaner.

    Had same issue. Took 3 weeks as they couldn't process my credit cards for RMA and said it's a system issue. They are located in the philipines... failed to promise follow-up
