    What OS is it running.... sound like it might be a developer version which didn't include all the apps and displayed the PIN. Either way the first thing I would do it reload the OS with the latest Autoloader. This will help get you started https://forums.crackberry.com/showth...1#post10289712

    Then work through one issues at a time, if that doesn't fix them all. I know TuneIn is still in BBW.

    Yep, you need to update your OS. Do as triple Dunt says.
    The autoloader you need to download is here: https://mega.nz/#F!fA0URRLL!P-4nDqc5...5LyhA!uUEXFISb

    Choose the Passport zipped file ONLY (1.46gb), download it to a PC desktop, unzip it then plug your Passport into PC, click on the file and it will begin the process. Only takes about 15 minutes and will reboot when done. You can then set up with your BBID etc and find your apps. It's very easy to do.

    When you get the OS sorted: for a solid BB10 radio app, try Nobex. Enjoy your PPSE!

    Thanks you very much, I am reading that but I have some problems with browser I can enter many sites but I couldn't enter https://bitcointalk.org
    I can enter it with opera mini, besides I installed opera but it worked very slow
    For now the last question is about battery life, how long it should be?

    More if you stay with BB10 only solutions, less if you have to use Android version solutions.

    If you need an android browser search for YuBrowser on Apkpure.com and give it a try. It has been optimized for the Passport's Snapdragon chipset. I ditched Opera Mini a while back because I thought it was too slow and clunky. Having said that, all browsers are getting slow and clunky on BB10 devices.

    Android versions of apps will drain battery faster than non Android version. I’m sure that someone on here can explain better. That’s just how BB10 is.

    I will try it,thank you, I don't know technology codes etc but it doesn't make sense for me that we can use browser on old computers easily :s anyway I hope I can use this phone at least 1 year

    The more android apps you have on your device the shorter your battery life will be. Try to limit the number you have, disable notifications, go to settings/app manager/go to Application Permissions/click on EACH app you have including BB10 apps/disable Run When Minimized. It is my experience that Opera Mini is brutal on battery life and I would choose a lighter weight android browser.

    Also depends on how old the battery is. If I'm not mistaken BBVE can show your battery health.

    According to browsers, keep an eye on this thread... https://forums.crackberry.com/showth...0#post13202530 a new lightweight android browser which may be promising.

    I don't really agree on that. I have lot of android apps installed and it doesn't affect my battery at all. I have notification on of several. The only trouble I see is that "android player" sometimes gets crazy and use 24% (yes it's often 24!) of processing capability. Then phone gets hot and battery drains quickly. However it stops fast when I kill some active android apps and Google play services. I agree on Opera, and it's also quite slow.

    I use Firefox 57 when I need another browser. But it is very rare the default browser doesn't work for me. Can't remember the last time something worked in Firefox but not the BB10 browser.
    You can download Firefox directly from them, don't need the Playstore. Just note that versions beyond 57 do not work for me
