    phantomtech, Welcome, I love your post; it would make a good AD for BlackBerry®

    I sure want a Z30, I am with AT&T, and W-A-T-I-N-G; wish that I was with VZR...!
    Seems like AT&T are down on out....!

    I love the Z30 just the way it is delivered too! Just can't see covering anything on such a beautiful device. Plus I would miss the 'feel'.

    Glad you like it. I was very skeptical about it, but my wife has a Z10 and using it convinced me.

    Hey. Great first post. I really wish I could get a Z30 too. Since this comes up a lot I am obliged to remind you, whether you use a Q or Z, use 4:3 ratio when taking pictures. Use that full 8MP. 1:1 and 16:9 takes 6MP photos. Ok enjoy you Z30. I get Z envy sometimes.

    Similar story with myself OP. I'm mostly a lurker and post rarely but I have to agree with your experience. I've had my Z30 for a week now and it's definitely growing on me. Much to love and a little to learn and adjust to. I'm not a touch screen person. I've been using a company issued 9930 for quite a while and without question the most productive and efficient phone I've used. Last month they upgraded me to a Q10. I'm not as fast with it as my 9930 but hopefully I'll get there. It does have a lot to offer. BUT, now that I have my Z30 as my personal phone, I'm having a very hard time not making it my only phone. I have a feeling that if I get as fast typing on it as I do the Q10, I will. An amazing phone in all regards.

    Thank you for this!! I didn't even make that connection about the ratios, but it makes total sense.

    Photos definitely seem of higher quality using 4:3.

    Thanks again everyone for the kind welcome! I will definitely enjoy this phone, I can't put it down.

    This morning I received the Otterbox Commuter case that I ordered from Amazon, it is a really good case with great protection but it does take away from the sleek look of the Z30. I am really torn whether to keep it or not. Besides the added weight, it also makes the phone much thicker and a bit wider so now it is pretty difficult to navigate with one hand. I will have to use it for a few days to see if I can get used to it.

    Is there any other options out there for the Z30 to protect it without adding this much bulk? I couldn't find much choices for this phone on Amazon and the Otterbox cases are generally nice.

    For now it's staying on but I will have to see if the bulk is something I can get used to. It really is a shame to hide this phones beauty. Have I mentioned I love the back cover weave?

    Anyway, I hope we all continue to enjoy our phones!
    Hello there! Very glad that you're enjoying your new Z30! As for the case, consider the BlackBerry Transform case. I just started using it a week ago and I love it! It's slim, protects the corners, and I really think that it gives the phone a more edgier look to it. Plus it comes with an easy to install screen protector! I used to use the simple rubber skins available at Bell and Best Buy but the Transform case is definitely a keeper. I got it from the Source.

    Hi guys I just got mine also. Literally.
    I sold my brand new q10(it was replaced due to mic problem)
    I just wanted to say hello. Seems really solid device. I need to get used to the dimensions now.
    Wish blackberry gains some momentum again cause us a great company and really deserves more than what's receiving.

    This reply for all the other geezers...I was with BB from inception but went to iPhone for a couple of years as in my biz we deal with pictures to solve problems with remote installers on site....BBB wasn't really handy for that.

    However the Z30 has changed all that...still trying to fig out the text thing, but I'l get there..but the email , big screen, and HUB...love the HUB...are great.

    For biz, BB rules my young friends.

    Going on the 2nd day with my Z30 here and must also say so far I am loving it. Sadly my Z10 of a few months is taking a back seat quickly. Z10 is with AT&T and I couldn't wait see if they would carry the Z30 so now have 2 contracts but have a feeling will be dropping the Z10 plan because this Z30 is a great phone thus far.

    I use the Flip case for my Z10, which I really like. It looks very classy on the device and doesn't add much bulk.

    The CrackBerry store has this case for the Z30 and they're having a Xmas sale on right now.
