    I have one day left to decide between the OG Passport and the At&t model. I have both, but have to send one back on Friday before my wife files for divorce. I have spent a solid week with both phones side by side and haven't really noticed much difference. Sound quality on calls has been good on both, so has reception. Typing has been about the same, although the original seems to balance itself better while I fire off emails to the staff.

    So that leaves me with one last deciding factor: Wireless charging vs timely updates. Which would you prefer?

    I actually like the AT&T version, looks more "clean"...

    Swap the back cover plate to get rid of that logo.

    I really prefer the square OG version, except the AT&T version has the wireless charging, which to me is really cool. I SO wish the square one had wireless charging too, as I would totally use that feature. What it does is decrease wear and tear on the USB port. I think wireless charging should be a default feature for all devices by now.

    Does the AT&T version have their logo on it? I haven't actually closely looked at any back cover pictures of it yet...

    Yes it does. There are also a couple At&t apps but it's not bad.

    Yes I like the wireless charging it's very handy. My fear is if that convenience would be worth the potential delays in software updates.

    If you feels like to be in a crowd, needs support, wants teammates, indecisive, be led, be in, you should go with the rounded one.

    If you are comfortable in your own skin, be alone without feeling lonely, stubborn and persistent, confident and brilliant, you should try the sharp one... the catch is, once you choose the square, you lost the license to ***** about all the little annoyances in life otherwise someone will come to claim your square.

    The updates shouldn't be an issue if you are willing to use leaked OS releases.

    Keep both, get the divorce. Just kidding. I don't think the updates would be that awful to wait for. Sometimes given the little bugaboos it might be better. I like the wireless charging.

    wow, so much hate for the redesign!

    Go redesign, the extended chin + wireless charging is well worth it

    Wireless charging is convenient, sure, but don't forget that you're talking about a US carrier here. Delays for OTA updates aren't going to be pretty but if you're loading leaks, it doesn't matter that much I guess. If you prefer typing on the original one, then that might help you decide. Those little things add up. I personally prefer the square. Exactly the size of a passport... kinda makes a point!

    Yeah I don't mind the re-design. I think they both make a statement. At&t version does feel slightly heavier but I imagine it is due to the wireless charging maybe?

    They spent months designing the phone based off of an I-beam and your going to throw it all away for a rounded off Att version? If blackberry wanted the phone to be round they would have made it round. It's like the carrier logo wasn't enough they had to change the shape too.

    I had to make the same decision as you did a week ago.

    Depends. Do you install leaks? If not, then get the square version.

    LOL, don't lose your wife! But try and keep both Passport's AND your marriage. You're in a great position, I would love to have both versions on hand, 'just because' and of course for the wireless charging feature.

    Try and smooth it over by giving her one to use. Maybe that will convince her to let you keep both. I guess time is running out though, better decide quick and get to work on the convincing.

    I have the square. I don't have the rounded ones. But I'm sure that one advantage of the 'rounded' corners are not having trapped on pockets every time you are getting your Passport out...

    Thing is, the AT&T passport has an aluminium painted plastic trim. OG is rocking stainless steel. I'm happy with the more angular version.
