    I'm definitely getting one. I HATE not having an End key.

    Don't get a Q10 then if you know it doesn't have those buttons you want. Use a 9900 if it's that important to you

    I feel obligated to tell you that the iphone does not have a tactile button on keyboard to 'send' calls and 'end' calls either.

    I don't see what's the big deal! Before you make a purchase you should do your homework! I love my Q without the tool belt!!! If the back and end button are so important then stay with the bold or wait for the classic! I think it's time we all move on from this topic already! Waiting to get my hands on the Z30 and the Windmere

    How is it that you are being forced back to an iPhone? Does iPhone have a physical keyboard and physical call buttons? No. And yet it still sells so well. Q10 doesn't need these buttons either. You do. That's fine. That's exactly why BlackBerry announced the Q20. For those that want the physical buttons. It's going to be a bit of a wait though. Q20 is not due out until later this year. You will just have to ride it out. If you can't do without then you should probably get a 9900 for now.

    Type the number and press enter and it will place the call, no shortcut yet for ending the call.

    If you "need" a tactile keyboard, then how is the iphone even an option?

    I think people who are used to it really want it back.

    I've had it before but I don't really care. I guess more **** dails if I ever get a q20.

    I think you misunderstood the op, what I understood was that by not having the send/end keys.. his BlackBerry started to feel like an iPhone..
    Not that the situation will make him get an iPhone..

    Or so I think he meant

    A physical call and end key would be nice but not at the expense of screen real estate. The q10 is an awesome device and I love the keyboard but sometimes I do get jealous looking at other phone's big screens.

    hi to all
    my point re iphone was that (yep, no keyboard.....), but since most of what i need/like about tactile keyboard isnt applicable on q10 anyway.....then might as well go to the easier (perhaps better ((subjective)) ios. if the iphone had a tactile keyboard, then i would have kept it. ideally i would like an isimple phone. a phone that has all internet access and to serve my uses for emails, texts, calls, basic functions withOUT the swiping "user friendly" touchscreen. if the keyboard cases for iphone were better quality, then i would have gone that route. i like blackberry in many ways, and would like to see them carry on. i just think they need to focus more on simplifying the manual experience rather than halfheartedly following the screen-swiping appleesque designs everyone else is doing. there is definitely a market for it, and if the quality and all the apps etc are there, then perhaps half the trend followers would chose the keyboard route. fmri's, eeg's, pet scans all show itsnot only easier, faster, etc, but also less stressful and more engaging when typing with tactile buttons. not that i need to read that research to know what i like. and what i bet many more would opt for, if all the bells and whistles, apps, quality etc was there with the devices and op system

    Q20 screen will be larger than the Q10's.. But what you really want is a slider, right?

    I think a good compromise would be from the home screen during a call to touch the phone button and drag down to end the call.

    That would make me happy: One swipe up and one swipe down.

    Would it be possible to code an app for a single press shortcut key mapped to say... "E" for end? Or "P" or whatever?

    An accessory key that could be asigned to "End" wouldn't impact screen size. Even on a Z.

    Easy... Thy only need to programm [Enter] to answer a call, and [DEL] to end a call... They already programmed the [0/Zero] to turn the phone mute, so why not integgrate the Call/endcall into Enter/Delete?!

    Don't know why they don't make the space bar or power button the end key for a call
