    While I was at the bank speaking with a Financial rep, I had my Zed sitting out on the the desk and he stops the paperwork and typing and says "Is that the new Blackberry?!" I replied and said "Of course it is!" He asked if I liked it. My reply? "I'm loving it, you can check it out if you want!" I swiped up to unlocked it and he messed with it enough to say it's "Awesome!!"

    That was my trip to the bank today and it was great, thought I would share that to Crackberry Nation!

    Meeting at the office today and I showed my Z10 to an ex-BB user and he was looking at it with a very "heck shouldn't have got this android phone" look.

    All the other android guys in there were paying compliments too.

    PS: Nobody I handle the Z10 too seem to have issues figuring it out. 100% of the people managed to unlock the screen within 10-30 seconds.

    It's easy once you figure it out, I had to show him a file for some info on my Zed and it went to sleep, he was fumbling around trying to unlock it and I had to show him. haha

    My signature says 'sent from my amazing BlackBerry Z10 running BlackBerry 10'

    And I even changed my desktop email signature to say that. So every email I send says that lol

    I left the 'sent from my BlackBerry Z10' on an account I use for a charity. When I came to send out a group mailing 90% of the replies came back with variants of:

    "Sent from my Notebook."
    "Sent from my PC."

    And best

    "Sent while sitting on the toilet."

    The words "messed with" don't mean what you think if means. If someone messed with my BlackBerry Z10 I'd be upset or to use the word that the popular kids say I would be pissed. Get it? Messed and pissed... Time for Depends the younger demographic. ROFLMAO

    You must have a weak or easily guessed password.

    Na a, it is just easy. I didn't have to teach anyone how to. I did lock it back so they could see the cool glow effect if you swipe slowly.

    But no. I didn't have to teach anyone how to unlock it.

    Considering the amount of personal information on smartphones these days it is foolish not to enable password protection.

    Had the same thing happen to me. He loved the phone, said he was a former BlackBerry user.

    Well..i walked into the bank today and basically did the same thing and dropped it on my mortgage guys desk. He asked if that was the new BlackBerry, and was very inquisitive. We dealt with my mortgage then asked can I try it out? He said that his early renewal on his galaxy was coming up in a few weeks and would like to try the blackberry. He explained that he switch a couple years ago from blackberry to Samsung. I told him I can do better and that it was lunch hour, "I'm going around the corner to the deli to grab a bite to eat "why don't you guys join my wife and I". So he tagged along with a coworker. He messed around with my phone for 40 minutes, swapping his sim out, and absolutely fell in love with the device..as does everyone else who touches it. I've made him a believer that Waterloo is back.

    Well.. Call me one foollish folly fool.

    But really considering that my phone never leaves my pocket unless I take it from there AND that it can be remotely wiped with BlackBerry Protect... Na... I can't be bothered. It's not like i have secret service stuff in there, is it?

    Now, back to the point of UNLOCKING the phone. Even if it had a password in it, people still manage to get the gesture to unlock it figured out without help (if they are greeted by the home screen or a request for a password is not the topic here).

    I hope it is clear... this time...
