    For the extra $20 I'll go new. Never now what you get with a used phone.

    I would say use that money towards a phone that will still be flexible and usable in two years time. Im a huge Passport fan however and have had 3 iterations of it. If you must and just have 200 dollars to toss around - Depending on the age, id go with the SE. With the softer keyboard and highly polished look. I'd go that route. The rounded at&t version is a sleepr as well, as its the only one equipped with wireless charging and looks really sleek with all rounded corners. It also has the improved keyboard like the SE.

    Not true. The AT&T versions's keyboard is not discernably different from the SQW100-1's.

    Actually, I bought a second AT&T Passport in August as many were being blown out - prices not as good as what's out there now, of course. Compared to the first one I bought in March 2015, the new unit's keyboard feels not nearly as stiff as I remember my first one being. Perhaps later model runs used the same keyboard as with the SE. Nonetheless, the stiffer keyboard does eventually break in, so that differential ultimately shouldn't be a factor swaying a purchase decision IMO.

    Definitely get the new one, especially if it means 1-year warranty from BB.

    Go NEW!!!

    I went through 2 passports that I bought used before I bought mine new from amazon. one had a bad double typing issue and one that was BlackBerry secure locked that the seller added some junk os on top of it to mask that it was a stolen phone!!

    You never know what you are getting with a used device.

    In my opinion I would go with the new passport because you never know what issues you might encounter with a used device. If I were you, I would like to take advantage of a warranty that comes with a new device.

    Saw a guy selling Silver version in sealed box for $250 on eBay. Understand that you are not use to buying online, but if it is in original box and seal is in place and intact, it should be OK.

    Use a credit card if you don't have cash. $299 for a BRAND NEW SE from BlackBerry .... is there really a question. Even the basic one is $25 more than your 'nib' offer.... I love the SE

    Since of you have already used the original Passport
    Try something new
    But yes to do try to assure yourself regarding the SE that nothing is damaged
    Try running all BBVE tests
    Check device monitor for average battery life (might give you somewhat of an estimation) etc

    Considering those that have come before you and asked US to help decide something....
    You will be no closer to deciding in the end than when you began this thread.
    I usually suggest asking people you know and trust but, to this question... I can only suggest ( take what sanity you have left if you even get this far and read this...)
    Once your head stops spinning .... your best bet will be to ignore all the different opinions and simply toss a coin!


    If you insist on a choice, go for the SE.
    You'll need the $20 for therapy

    I've had about 4 og passports, one was white, wanted to feel the SE, and it feels great, still using my classic til a case gets here, but the keyboard feels great, and I can't wait to put a glass screen protector on it.
    thing with having a BlackBerry like this is, it will always stand out, when people see eachother with iphones, they don't care, probably talk about apps or what case they have, but when they see these BlackBerry phones they are amazed
