    Oops, I bought a blackberry again since they dropped bb10 support. However, the priv is such a decent device, I couldn't resist...

    After removing almost everything from Google except the play store I realized that at the end this is exactly what people need when they care about privacy.

    At least, BlackBerry promised longer than required security updates.

    If you want BB10 on the Priv, you could be waiting a while, like forever!

    There should be nothing more left. I have installed the file manager and the gallery app from here
    Regarding maps, I have sygic, for media I have VLC and for documents office suite. There is a variety of free software available at f-droid.org/
    ( open source app store)

    I have also deactivated BBM and use Threema to communicate with family and selected friends.

    Glad to see more people concerned about their privacy
