    Sorry not on BBM, never used it, when I got my first Passport, December 2014, BBM was well on it way down, none of my friends or business contacts used it

    Do use Whats App, which is working fine on my Passport ..

    Wait I am confused. Did you buy the original OG passport? or the Silver edition?

    I own the silver version and the AT&T version and was always curious to buy the OG. how's the keyboard on the OG compared to the silver and att? in my opinion the keyboard on the silver is far better than the ATT's.

    I never understood these type of posts. So if BB10 is dead then that means I shouldn't keep using it?

    Just cause BlackBerry ditched BB10 doesn't mean it's going to disappear into oblivion on my BB10 phones. I can still use it, and will.

    But if BlackBerry shut the back end servers, many things would stop working.

    This is true, probably. But what's the likely hood of BlackBerry doing this? Tens of thousands of people still use BB10 in 2018. I can't see them doing this until the user numbers decrease a lot more.

    I totally agree there is something "magical" and brilliant about the Passport. Although BIS and BBOS are only a tiny percent of uses now, the Passport is just so optimal and brilliant design wise.

    I think it is similar to a classic car from the 60s or 70. Only very few people drive them but there are many people that absolutely adore the classic cars.

    I agree you can't do everything in BBOS. For me the solution is -

    Passport - my A number 1

    Priv - it's OK but a bit flakey (for example for some bizzare reason I can't "like" any post in Crackberry). It's got a physical keyboard but clunky.

    Samsung Note 8 - for taking excellent photos and using all the modern social apps etc.

    I need 3 pockets though or one bulky pocket!

    BB0 is dead. They aren't making much money on it. The only thing they can do and they won't is offer services.

    Seriously. The KEYone is a much better device now than Passport.

    The KEYone is what the Passport would have been had BB10 ever had a full ecosystem like Android.

    A Charger from the 60's or 70's with only three wheels is no match for a proper four wheeled version even from this century.

    The only thing the Keyone has over the Passport...apps.
    Keyone designs stinks plain and simple.
    Needs to be more like a slightly bigger version then the Classic, then it would be much better.
    Most Keyone lovers hype it up just because it's PKB.
    Maybe BB will wake up with the keytwo.

    I'd lay 2-1 odds that KEYone has sold more devices than Passport at same point in the sales cycle and will continue you to do so. Your preference is not relevant if times have changed and people want bigger screens.

    No sh*t it's sold more at same time period....it's an andriod OS. so yes it has sold more and...
    Still doesn't mean it's better or worse.
    Keyone design is crap and would have been better off making a new version of the Priv. if they wanted a PKB that bad. Me personally would have liked a larger Classic.

    Net sales and net profits is how the entire supply chain from manufacturers to retailers measure what's better. If more people bought Palm and webOS back in the day, we'd be having this discussion on a different site. Outliers are never better to retailers, just best sellers.

    You can't compare Passport sales to Keyone sales being andriod is running about 85% of all smart phone OS to BB10 when Passport was released having about 1% sales of all smart phone so obviously Keyone will have more sales.
    If the passport was released 15 years ago when BB was a giant then we could compare.

    You like Keyone I like Passport.

    You can't compare the two phones

    What you can say is....the KEYone is the best Android PKB but it is far far from the best Android phone either in its price range or above..

    That goes to either Google or Samsung, both can run the excellent Blackberry apps suite, have great cameras etc etc


    Now the Passport is not the best phone either..but it is the very best PKB out of BB10 or Android phones even if the design is over 3 years old..nothing comes close

    In my humble opinion....
