    Does the PRIV have a "reactivation Lock" feature built in? say someone steals my phone and wipes it to factory default, does it then prompt to enter a BB ID or Reactivation feature that's tied to an email address/service?

    I know Samsung Galaxy Phones have that feature for their newer Android devices. Think of it like the new Blackberry ID integration into BB 10.3.2 when the phone is wiped with the wrong password 10 times, it then up on boot up and setup ask for the BB ID that was originally used to setup the phone. If not supplied, the phone is pretty much useless to the person.

    Thanks

    I type in 2 languages. The BB10 allows me to install two languages on the keyboard which gives me predictive text for both. I don't need to switch languages. Does the Priv's keyboard allow installation of two languages for simultaneous use?

    I played with a Priv in Waterloo yesterday, and I use a Z30 as my every day device. I am pretty sure the screen was dimmer at the low end and brighter at the high end than my Z30.
    Thanks for the response. I'm looking forward to my pre-ordered PRIV. Like I told a good friend of mine, I see the PRIV as a Kickstarter campaign of sorts to return BlackBerry to its rightful former glory. A very expensive campaign, but totally worth it if it helps them.

    Hey usman, would appreciate if you would be able to check two things for me?

    1. Does it have FM radio? Though I know that will be region specific.

    2. If you have a USB otg cable is the phone able to power a 1TB USB powered hardrive on its own?

    I read through this entire post and cannot believe no one asked this question.

    How is the process of transferring contacts from BlackBerry 10 to Android on the Priv? All of the other information I could care less about, but my almost 500 contacts are crucial to me.

    I don't know if this has been asked or covered:

    Does the camera app have the incredibly easy to use Panorama mode found in the newer BB10 OS's? You slide along and match a square into a a hollow square frame?

    Hopefully, the factory reset protection on the Priv doesn't have a software flaw that allows such an easy way to bypass as shown in the latest video from RootJunky pointed out on Android Central.

    There are many ways, but this will probably be the easiest.

    PrivBerry, I know for those of us that are so used to the way HUB works in BB10, we may be a little disappointed with the way HUB works on the Priv. Can you say in your opinion that someone who has never experienced HUB on BB10 will like the HUB on the Priv? If they never knew how Peek and Flow works and how great it is, they will never be the wiser?
