    Well, quite a few of us are rediscovering the virtues of 9900's compactness, battery options, trackpad functionality, exquisite keyboard, keyboard shortcuts, convenience key, etc, etc... All adding up to unmatched single handed competency. Maybe not for EVERYone but unequaled as part of a dual device user strategy, imo.

    I keep my big screen stuff handy but how large of screen do I really need for a voice call? Or text? Or Email? Trackpad makes navigating the most compact of screens a joy.

    Just update to latest OS & don't go crazy with apps and you just might succumb to the compact little 9900's enchanting charms like quite a few of us have.

    I generally don't carry two phones at the same time (that's the beauty of using a BlackBerry phone, most of my clients use BES, and therefore I can have a client email account on my phone that they can control) - but I do have a second phone...

    ... the second phone is a Doro (looks a bit like a children's toy mobile phone) because I sometimes have to take very strong medication that makes my fingers go numb... when my fingers go numb it is way too difficult to use my Passport (and was nigh on impossible with my previous Q10 and 9xxx phones).

    I use a Q10 and a Lumia 950. I love the Q10, use it for email, calendar, etc, and the Lumia because it has apps and an awesome camera (yup, Windows phone has a lot of apps, though not Snapchat). (And both have replaceable batteries, I carry spares.)

    Hello,

    People that use more than one device, what is your reasoning other than having to own one due to your job?
    I'm interested to know what devices and why you guys carry more than one around with you.

    Thanks, Mike

    My Passport (silver) is my daily driver.............I switch off to an I phone when Face-time is needed. But with what I learned today from BB Tec Support that will be coming to an end!..

    Typically I only use one. However when I travel, come think of it is often, I use two, sometimes three Q's. Essentially the "home office" number, a local number, say "Hong Kong", and sometimes a third phone if I leave one country and there is a need to keep the local number, say HK when I land in Seoul. However, this is rare.

    One for work (Passport) and one for personal use (Android). The Passport is a brand new acquisition and I'm quite enamored with it.

    Passport for personal line, Priv for work line.
    But since I'm using my Priv with company SIM, Priv is my app phone. I use Passport for all communication including work related.

    Recently moved from the OG Passport to the P'9983 Graphite as my daily driver essential due to size. Though it's a personal purchase, I manage a large amount of work-related activities on it especially email and documents. Its built-in memory lets me download a large amount of files from Dropbox for off-line or weak network access without compromising native memory. My second mobile is an iPhone 6S, personal purchase as well with the work SIM, for a few important apps to me that don't function reliably on the P'9983 via the Play Store on the P'9983. The iPhone is also for my iTunes movies, series and music on the go.

    I understand that this unrelated to the thread title so I apologise for that. So I bought a 9900 Boxed with everything from eBay. Description gave no indication that the device was faulty however the trackpad doesn't register clicks but does register touch for scrolling. The buttons: "W,S,G,H and L" do not work. Is this at all common, ribbon cable loose maybe under shipping?

    Yes, the Graphite P'9983 has the leather wrapped battery door. There's also the shiny battery door on the siver P'9983??

    I tried with using my Note 4 along with the Q10, but I just hated carrying two phones.

    I use an old Zenfone 6 with my Z30. I hate using two devices like this, but it can't be helped. There are some--not many, crucial Android apps that I need but not available in BlackBerry World.

    Classic as my daily driver and work line. (my favorite BlackBerry device) I have an extra personal line that has seen usage in my Passport, Z30 and Z10. *I recently gave my mother in law my unlocked Z30 (She loves it-and I miss it). Since I gave my Z30 up I have been using my Z10 and damn what a good device it remains. It's size, screen and speed are all a-ok for me. (love the one handedness) I bought two new batteries and it's excellent. I get throughout a day but if I am running low and don't have time for a charge I can simply pop in the other. I love reading on the Passport but for day in and day out just not ergonomical for my needs.

    I have two pristine 9900's that still operate like new. I guess I should put up for sell. ;o)

    Classic was my favorite BB10 device too. I was hoping it would catch on and become a staple in their device lineup, but it did not.
    Waiting to see what the Blackberry/Android PKB device looks like, but not holding out much hope.

    9900 and iPhone 5C. 5C for apps and 9900 (for the most basic apps like FB, Twitter and Whatsapp) but mostly for ease of quick typing and responses, excellent OS7 email.
