    I ordered a blackberry passport and I'm so happy with my choice. So excited about getting it ...

    I am so disappointed because I went into a Vodafone shop to see the passport and to check out my new phone.

    They don't stock blackberry's anymore. So I checked others and it's all the same. No carrier in Ireland stocks blackberry in there stores.

    Hopefully they will come back...

    Yeah, it was like that here for a while in the U.S., and even still, there's nowhere you can play with a working original style Passport (just the rounded Passport on at&t which I've yet to see in ANY at&t store too).

    When the Passport came out in September, I ordered it without even getting a chance to see it or hold it, like you did. I think September 24 or 25 is when it launched, and I had gotten back from London, where, had I just waited a couple days longer in London, I could have seen the Passport at Selfridges because they have a whole BlackBerry area set up.

    The good news is that the suspense of waiting to get a Passport without holding it is worth it because the Passport is really one of a kind. I remember unboxing it and just being in awe of how cool and massive it is. You're really going to love it.

    BlackBerry have a great product line up but it's unfortunate that there is a lack of carriers support now.

    I had difficulties finding a working demo model on display here as well, I wanted to try out the keyboard to see if I could adjust to it but most of the carrier stores only have the plastic dummy models so that doesn't give you a very good idea of how a device actually works. Luckily, I was able to track one down and played with it for a bit and needless to say my mind was made up pretty quickly.

    Enjoy your new BlackBerry Passport when it arrives, it's a great device.

    All you need to do is order one from Blackberry.
    Or amazon and if you don't like (but you will!) return it.
    But keep it!! No other phone compares with battery life.
    And, it JUST works!

    I think my AT&T store (which is really nice) is the only place I've seen it (that and the Classic). Both of them were working models too. I love this device but I too am disappointed by all of this. Makes me wonder if Blackberry is really serious about sticking with it's phones. Others say you should just be glad you have a great phone but that only goes so far. I don't keep my phones forever (always wanting something bigger and better I guess) and if that isn't going to happen, I'm not going to be so happy about getting really attached to it with nothing down the road but a Blackberry device running Android. Yuk. Call me crazy but that's how I feel.

    Doesn't sound good, 'fatal file system error' sounds--well-- fatal.

    I guess there was just too much pressure to perform on this poor Passport. "It happens sometimes."

    Where have you been???

    The BlackBerry users are leaving in droves already. There were 50 million BlackBerry users last year, there are now only 33 million..... and they are just barely able to sell 1 million devices a quarter (counting BB10 only, it was under a million). We know that most of that install base is BIS devices and OLDER BB10 devices already at their 2 year point. If the acceleration of the losses continue the user base could drop below 15 million next year.

    Do you really think Android could make things any worse for BlackBerry hardware?

    If you don't get your device there. Don't worry. Try somewhere like Amazon.
