    Survived.. thank the lord.

    It was in my pocket, I walked into my stores area and reached in there. Pulled it out and BAM.. it hit the floor on the bottom right corner.

    Mass panic set in.. I quickly scooped it up and I'm pleased to say. Not a mark on it.. nothing..
    PHEW..

    Never trust the outer appearance. I have dropped my n8 countless times and until now there still no chip or drop mark whatsoever as it is protected by silicone case but now the phone lag a lot and the camera probably damage as the pictures doesn't look as nice as I first bought it. All this due to constant dropping(mostly without case) as the phone is slippery. Standing height, table height.

    All functions check out ok.. although the browser is VERY laggy.. but in all honesty, it was laggy before the drop.

    I'm just about to post on the browser issue Im seeing..

    Ps Nope, no case on it as I can't find any cases for sale in the UK.

    That's a first! Sorry to hear that this happened but after seeing the design and actually having the passport in hand, I think it's the best blackberry ever built.

    Yes, but the passport has gg3. I think it's 2 on the Z30.

    Interesting...I dropped my z10 about 4 times. Slight wear and tear on the casing, but no damage. I dropped my z30 once...ONCE...and the top Centre of the screen shattered.

    Replaced now. All is well. Was just happy for have my z10 still while I waited for the phone to be returned.

    Yes, BlackBerry got slammed in the media for not using Gorilla Glass on the Z10, but tbh the glass they used was pretty good. It was the same with the PlayBook. in my opinion Gorilla Glass is just a name, i've seen too many fractured iphone and Samsung Galaxy screens to rate it that highly.

    Has anyone confirmed the passport works with a cracked screen? The Z10 would not work with a crack and rendered the device useless until repaired. I assume the PP LCD tech is different but the Z10 design flaw has kept me from buying one as a second device to back-up my Q10.

    Had a 7000 series Nokia drop from my shirt pocket to a concrete warehouse floor when standing on the back of my truck, about 10ft or so. Apart from a chip on one corner no apparent damage.

    Design flaw? Seriously?
    If you broke it you can hardly expect it to work. And you can't expect BlackBerry or anyone else to design a phone which will limp along no matter which internal component is broken or fails.

    Agree with you completely that N8 was the best. Like the 6700 Classic before it, it was soooo good and long lasting that they stopped making it because no one ever bought a new phone. my n8 was stolen a few months ago and I bought a new windows phone. It was horrible! and you have no options to back up directly to your pc if you use XP, you can only back up to "the cloud" so microsoft can steal all your data. I searched until I found a new in the box n8 (in peru of all places) and struggled to get my content and apps restored. Now you cannot Skpye on N8 and microsoft is killing off all the other apps for N8 like Linkedin, to force you to go to windows phones, so I am thinking of trying blackberry for the first time.

    Could youhave share your experience changing from N8 to blackberry and answer a few of my most basic questions?



    1. Given the Snowden leaks, how can blackberry say it is secure if it is running across a phone network like ATT or the user is installing Android apps that report home on your phones contents?


    2. Does Blackberry wok with any phone network and your own sym card, or is it restricted to certain networks? I remember reading about the Blackberry "network" going down and millions of people could not use their blackberries. Or was that just for the messaging component not the phone and apps, itself?



    3. Nokia Maps (Drive) has always been the best GPS road map iIMHO. How does Blackberry's navigator stack up against Nokia (windows)?



    4. I am thinking of changing to Linux Mint as replacement for XP. Do you know if I can sync and back up a Blackberry directly to a PC running Linux?



    5. How readily available is service and tech support for Blackberry?

    Thanks in advance
