    There is one other possibility: You may be able to use Ver 6.3.13 ONLY if you have NEVER used a higher version of WeChat on an android device OR have never signed up previously with WeChat. There is a possibility that WeChat checks and verifies a phone number with a higher version. So when you try the lower 6.3.13 on a BB10 device your phone number and account is tied only to a higher version. This may prevent the sign in. In China, people (young people especially) may have been first time sign-ins on the Q10's that they are buying OR they may have purchased new sims with a never before log-in to WeChat. People over there tend to change numbers often as it's cheap.

    As noted, the error code when trying to log in always mentions "too old version - please update.......etc" and this is a hint that WeChat already has your phone number associated with a higher app version. Anyway, I quit - my brain hurts.
    That makes perfect sense! I have an Android account on my K2 tied to the same number. Thanks for testing! Much appreciated,

    I sorta checked out blackberryclubs.com....


    Most recent "hot news" is on the Galaxy Z40, some tech conferences that have nothing to do with BlackBerry and some reviews on shoes?

    Latest BlackBerry article seems to be from last December... that was on the BBMo products.

    That last article on the front page of their site for BB10... was from 2016.

    But they still have a 10% discount story for shopblackberry.com on their front page....

    Bottom line this isn't a very active site.... maybe there is more going on in the Members only area?
    Their social media accounts seem more active which I assume is what the article is referring to.

    It's pretty cool that the phones are getting re-skinned, it'll send the tools not toys crowd into shock but it might be a strategy worth trying on the Key devices in Asia.

    So.....maybe if I could somehow find a Chinese apk for WeChat, I could get it working in my Passport? I have an account already and have it in my android phone but, of course, it won't work in the Passport.

    BlackBerry 10 has (or at least had) a native WeChat application. I was using it for a while actually but switched to the Priv later on.

    That native app hasn't worked for quite a while now. Maybe over a year?

    Yeah I've been off BlackBerry 10 for a while. That BB10 native app they had was one of the better ones though. I was quite surprised how well it worked and how much time was put into making sure it adhered to the BB10 UI standards, BB10 was never popular in China/HK.
