    All you guys so lucky man. I was going to buy one from a friend's store as soon as they hit local stores. Met with an accident and got my right hand fractured. Cast stays on for 6 weeks. Have to wait now, medical expense just swooped too :/ this is so torturous.

    I get told that by my teenagers all the time.
    In this case though, I'm just really frustrated. For me, this is a less productive tool than I was hoping for. Additionally, because of the pain in my hands, I can't just shrug and go buy a slab phone. Yes, I could go with an option that's 100% voice-to-text, but I know someone who has got to use that kind of solution, and it's definitely less productive than what I'd be hoping for.
    Keep in mind, I said from the start that there's a lot to like about the phone. ... But my "weird" dislike for the keyboard is just as valid as those of you who think it's the best thing ever.
    You should return the phone immediately. No point settling for a phone less desired. Did you have a Z30 before?

    I don't have a better option, which is part of why I'm frustrated. I was using a Del Venue Pro, which was barely limping along.
    With respect to the Z30, I mentioned previously, I have nerve damage in my hands, and can't type on slab phones without it causing pain in my fingertips.
    Will give this the several more weeks, to adjust to the keyboard. Probably will have to go with the Classic, if it comes out soon. However, based on what I have seen, the screen size of the Classic is still pretty small.

    In that case I'm sure once you get the hang of it, it won't be so bad. I remember transitioning to an touch screen iphone 5 after using blackberries for so long, and then back to the Q10 after that. It takes a week or so. Give us feedback after another week and see if you still feel the same.

    Hopefully. ... Except that pecking on virtual glass keyboards is physically painful.
    Still, there's a lot about the phone that's good. For example, I suspect you could sit down with it in you back pocket, and never worry about bending. Also, the sound quality is good, the camera is much better than the last phone I had, and the images on the screen are like watching a HD TV.

    I got really lucky! After trying a couple of Telus stores that won't sell outright, since I'm on bell, found and add on kijiji this morning. Guy had just posted. 600, he even sent me IMEI by sms before we met so I order unlock code.

    Coming from z30 and nexus 5, getting used to kb, but lovely phone.

    You guys are so Lucky.. i'm still waiting for my Passport (Ordered in France on shopblackberry the 09/25). I check my mail probably 20 times per day for my "tracking informations", I can't wait!

    Here in France the BlackBerry is Sold Out, we can only pre-order it: and some guys sell it for 1000€ (the normal price is 650€ approx) on internet. That's Fword' crazy!

    So.. i have to be patient & stay cool: they already "charged my bank account" (?) i just need to waiting for the delevery man!

    Hi, congrats everyone on you new phones. I wondered if anyone was running the phone on Fido? If I buy one outright, will it work?

    Showed my wife the passport today. She thought it was a new tablet with a built in keyboard. A wifi only passport would be super.

    This kb is fantastic. Takes little getting used to, working on how to flick up the suggested words properly.

    Yes baby. It's here. Lovely. Just a few hours new. Telus. Canada.
    It's hip to be square.

    Line up all the devices you want: Samsung, Apple, LG, HTC, Motorola, Sony, Huawei, Xiaomi, etc......they all look the freakin' same. Rectangles with rounded edges or corners.

    You have to give it to BB for thinking outside the box. A special nod to Nokia who has also made unique devices distinguishing it from the herd.

    BB10 and Flow will take some getting used to. I became an iHerd sheep for Google and Apple smartphones over the past few years. I had a BB 9900 a few years back. That keyboard was gold. I don't think the Pp keyboard is as excellent, however, it is still solid and has not taken me too long to feel comfortable. Just a few hours in fact. I'm sure it will only get better day after day. Perhaps not faster than a virtual keyboard, but since I type with more precision, I'd say overall efficiency increases and then eventually speed...so yeah...faster....eventually.

    Hope to read up on on how to change or set certain things I like. Enjoy and congrats to all of you who have or will get a Pp.
