    There is no saying what parts of BB10 will work for 3-4 years.
    So no Passport won't meet your needs.

    I really like my passport but I would never be able to use the word “flawless” when describing it.

    BlackBerry is going to start shutting down services over the next two years. After December 31st, 2019, the device will be crippled in unpredictable ways.

    This alone would probably disqualify the Passport and any BB10 device. BlackBerry's desktop software hasn't been updated in years and some users are having problems getting it to work on newer versions of Windows and Mac.

    As other users have mentioned, various BlackBerry services are being shut down so it's possible the device might not even last you a year. You should look into a BB Android device (like the Keyone).

    If, by "tomorrow," you mean "4 years ago," you'd be slightly less wrong than what you wrote.

    The BB Passport will be great for what you want to do until Jan 1, 2020, when BB10 support apparently ends and we will know if restarting our Passports will result in the OS no longer booting. Until then, you can get a Passport for pretty cheap and enjoy the BB10 experience while you can.

    But otherwise go to the Android KEYone. You can use Android however you want - just put Office 365 and all kinds of productive apps on it to turn it into a useful work assistant. The battery is pretty good, as big as the Passport's.

    There are quite a few posts of people saying why they still love their Passport and for what they use the phone for. Might pay to check out some of these posts - I'd say still worth to buy a Passport.

    No. Get an Android or iOS device and save yourself from wasted/unproductive hours of tinkering and workarounds.

    I really wish the issue of what functionality of BlackBerry 10 would be officially known.

    I understand the app store and other services will stop working but for me, I want to know if I will be able to boot up my phone and use it for Web browsing ( weak browsing by 2020) calls, texts and emails.

    I have a few BlackBerry 10 devices in excellent condition and I would like to use them for streaming music via wifi at the gym, back up emergency device and a 2 phone for when I travel abroad using a local SIM.

    I am fully aware that the BlackBerry 10 experience at that point will be very weak but as a basic device for calls, texts, emails and Web surfing, that is all I would need.

    I know I have a while to worry about this but the whole thing would be a lot easier to understand if we knew 100%

    For what he wants to use the device for a Passport would work, maybe not 3-4 years but in all honesty I recommend the Passport.

    Most things BB10 related will probably not be available after 12/31/2019.

    Passport was a great phone, but there are a couple of problems with what you are looking for in a device:

    1. Syncing to your laptop may be a problem with BB10.
    2. No one knows if you will be able to use a BB10 device after January 1, 2020.
    3. OG was produced in 2014 and SE was produced in early 2015. Even if 1 and 2 weren't true, there is no guarantee that the non-replaceable battery would last another 3-4 years.

    Given these potential issues, it would seem that a Passport would not meet your requirements in 2018.
