    First time I've seen Passports in the wild. A couple had 2 today. His was black hers was white. I try and make it a point to talk to people who have BlackBerry 10 phones about their experience with them.

    So I asked "how do you like your Passports? " and she immediately says "OMG are you kidding me I love this phone and BlackBerry!" and immediately takes me on a tour of the keyboard, screen, audio, and video with some saved YouTube videos. She was very nimble with her phone I was very impressed. Kind of made me feel a Lil inferior with my Q5 but I told them I own a Z10, Z30, Q10 and 2 Q5's which got a rise out of hubby.

    Anyway we talked a little more until they had to leave. Just another feel good story that I wanted to share .

    Lol, I'm surprised you didn't freak them out.

    That's cool that they both have one.

    The sad part is that I have never seen a Passport. Not in the wild. Of course Verizon stores don't have it but I stopped in the local AT&T store and they gave me the same old lines about BlackBerry.

    I've never had the experience to meet anyone with a bb10. Meeting one with a passport is like asking too much. But it's always great to hear some of these experiences. BlackBerry is for the secret society like us. Thanks for sharing.

    Me too! I am out of the country and was all ready to ask the better half to pick one up, just to experiment....Likely all for the best as I have enough Q's.

    I live in Ottawa and seeing BlackBerry devices in the wild isn't rare. While at Costco yesterday I saw a Passport and a Z30.

    I was in Costco about 3 weeks ago and the clerk running their phone booth didn't believe me when I told him that Blackberry was still in business. He thought that the only Blackberries available were used.

    Two of my best friends each have a Passport and people pretty much go crazy when the see the Passport because they want to know what it is and it looks like nothing out there. I had been using a Q10 for over a year just got a Priv about 2 weeks ago. Feels pretty awesome when people are constantly going: "BlackBerry! Android...A KEYBOARD?! WHAT!!!!"

    I live in Los Angeles and haven't seen anyone yet with a BlackBerry Passport. I have seen two people with Q10s and one with a 9930 at Costco. However, every time I pop out the Passport ( Red version) and people see it they get all enthusiastic about it and are amazed on how Android apps run on it. A few of my coworkers at Costco have made the switch to the Priv however.
