    *Original Title: So if the battery can't be removed, how do we completely turn this off and prevent nasty nsa from tu*


    I mean that's what made BlackBerry so much more secure than Apple.

    Now with it being the same it's no longer an advantage.

    Drop your phone in a bucket of water. Should turn off nicely for you.

    I am going to update the title of this so it is slightly less than a page long

    As for removing your battery regarding NSA listening etc, that wont help anything lol.

    Never knew that you had to remove battery to "completely " turn off a device. Same method as turning off Z10 works for me but if that fails then you can try the foil paper method listed and put in microwave for two minutes... that should do the trick

    If you think like that, why take a phone that has a non removable battery? The Z10 or Q10 are still there.
    In fact,NSA can get more information from "big data" then from spying directly. Big brother is watching

    I had a z10.

    But it was a bit too small for effective two handed typing.

    This z30 has increased my efficiency.

    Besides, I'm growing old and my eyes are thanking me for the larger screen.

    There's still a little internal battery. There is no escape.

    your phone can be remotely controlled, (i.e. activate mic, camera, etc.), @ any time unless you remove the battery,,, i still wonder why bb went w/ the non-removeable/replaceable option,,, "oh, my battery's dead, now i gotta buy a new phone"...

    you have been watching very badly... nothing to do with the battery... you need to take the sim card out..as long as your sim card is in, it emits its position.

    kind of funny if you think about it, the z30 is more NSA friendly and now all the reviewers are saying good things about it

    See it's a conspiracy.

    As for removing the sim card, the phone can make emergency calls without a sim card so that tells me those who want to listen in can do so as long as the phone has power.

    It's non-volatile memory. It doesn't need power to retain its content. RAM is volatile and does get wiped with a battery pull.

    There is a small battery inside for keeping the clock running, but it's not powerful enough to power up any of the antennas.
