    Wonder what would be the "ifixit" rating on this phone, hope it has a similar internal build style to the BlackBerry Z30 though I doubt it:/

    ok? the pictures speak for themselves. i'm just narrating.
    But the slider is not thick. Its like 9.7mm.

    My only concern at this time is going back to an amoled screen. I moved from the Z30 to the passport so I could see the phone screen in daylight conditions.

    I agree. I love being able to see my Passport screen in full daylight even though the screen is at full dim (oxymoron?).

    I just find it funny when people complain about the thickness of a phone (on a slider by the way), when nearly all of us slap a case on a phone anyways.

    I also said it looks thick. It looks...
    What i mean is that a phone can be thick but does not look like that.
    Like my passport...it doesn't look thick but if you compare it to some other phones, it is.

    So i don't care if my phone is a bit thicker, as long as it looks sleek...
    In this case, the slider doesn't...

    Yeah because there's been so many flagship sliders released in the last 5 years. So yeah, people will complain. Get over it.

    It's probably either a picture or a good theme. Check BlackBerry World for themes on your torch.

    I could get in trouble for disclosing this but BB10 is coming to all legacy devices. Sadly still not the PlayBook though... :P

    Well, I didn't ask about BB1o coming to legacy; what I wanted to know is HOW you got BB10 onto an old OS7 device ... unless it's what "tufcustomer' suggested: either a Theme or a good Photoshop job.

    ... 'cause I'm finding it hard to believe that the old phones have sufficiently good hardware (CPU, RAM, storage, etc.) to run BB10 sufficiently well, and no-one really wants an already old & slow phone to run any slower, even IF it offers new functionality.

    As they say on the Internet: pictures or it didn't happen. Well, you gave us exactly that, but everyone knows photos can't 'really' be trusted anymore. So a roadmap to install would be great, please. Pretty please.

    THANKS!

    You can't get BB10 on the BBOS devices. Full stop.

    Way easier.

    1. Take a bloody screenshot in your Q10.
    2. Cut a bit of it, and shrink it proportionally.
    3. Load the JPG in your Torch.

    Even easier: Google search "BB10 screenshot" from the Torch, open full-screen image and pinch to zoom it to fit the screen (more or less), and take a blurry picture of it. Done.

    It's a theme called "GULL Able X10" and it's pretty easy to find. I didn't want to sidetrack the thread though. But it's soooo easy to fake a screenshot of something it's not even funny. What is funny is how people think that it's a fancy photoshop job.

    I tried to use photoshop once and I was way too lost. MS Paint still gets the job done when I need it to. This however was much easier than that.

    3) Potential of dual SIM, a first on a Blackberry (hopefully).
    Not a 1st on BlackBerry, but a first on BlackBerry in North America. It would also be a first on a BB10 device.....Though only if it has BB10 on it...

    You know, I think that's the first time I've seen someone ask about the light. Good question!

    Yes, it does have a notification light. It shows up in several photographs, including when BlackBerry first showed it in March at MWC.

    I wonder if it's just a matter of them turning the sim slot sideways for space reasons? If the SIM slot held the card in "landscape" layout, it's about the right size?
