    I’m interested in purchasing an old blackberry model for calling, texting and email only. I plan to be on T-Mobile network. Which phone do you recommend? I’m considering a Bold 9900 or Classic. Thanks in advance

    I would recommend the Classic. Skip anything older than that.

    Classic for a PKB Blackberry. Z30 for an all touch. Both work well on T-Mobile. (Ensure whichever model you choose is an unlocked model)

    The other alternative is a Passport, which is the highest performance phone with a physical keyboard, but which has a unique form factor.

    "for calling, texting and email only" .., please..
    Passport seems to be overkill for that

    Thanks! I was leaning towards the Classic for 4G and the most like traditional blackberry. Any recommendations on where to purchase? I've seen several on eBay.

    It is, unless one prefers the form factor an/or larger battery.

    Yup, there are plenty on eBay.

    If you care about wireless charging, try picking up an AT&T model that's been unlocked.

    If the KEY2/LE/KEYone is out of the question I'd go with the Classic, T-Mobile branded SQC100-4 if possible for maximum compatibility.

    The only Q10 I'd recommend is the limited edition white & gold one, which can be found right now on eBay for $119.
    It's more than I'd ever pay for a BB10 device at this point (aside from Blue Classic and Red Passport) but at least it'll hold its value a little better than a plain ol' black one.

    Talking about the OP's specific use case, not necessarily about holding value. But cool!
