Not so long I was asking people what do they think about BB Passport and decided to buy used from Amazon Warehouse. I currently own 7th !!! BB Passport because I had to return previous 6 for screen coming off !

These are seller refurbished units for sure because after BB gets hot poorly re-applied screen tape can't hold the glue.
It is ok when normal use but after an hour of constant using it will get hot.

I am currently using this seventh "used-refurbished" unit and will swap it again because again I am starting to have problems and probably will grab silver edition if they have one at similar price or maybe will get lucky and this time I will get unit that was returned because of unusual look - not damaged.

Phone is great and BB Passport is awesome for my use. Also in 10 minutes you can make flash working on websites and if needed also to play just sound with switched off screen. And a lot more ...
Best phone I owned.

If you spend less than 2 hours on YouTube a day not watching PiewDiePie or Jackscepticeye then this phone is for you.
Because it is a masterpiece. But for rest people Sammy or Apple is advised.
Just good luck with getting nice phone.

BTW : I always write on a box if unit is damaged so if under one of labels you will find word "damaged" it means I had it before and returned.

But VOTED HOT !!! Phone is worth for me at least 2 times more !!! - I gave up on Note 4 and using this - honestly.

Fair warning, while you are within your rights to request replacement if item is faulty - Amazon are know for banning people for too many returns. Might be worth considering a refund if you keep having problems.

Not in risk really because I am ordering from my brothers account and he is spending 4k+ a month on Amazon and he have only 1-5 returns a year.Except this time.
But thanks for letting also others know.
nice this will replace my blackberry curve that i use for company phone

No one knows Amazons criteria for banning people. They will ban everyone living at the same address and cancel any gift card balances.

I am now only returning items as a last resort. If I can get my money back by selling on ebay, I will do that.

Banned for 2 items is absolutely ridiculously STUPID.

Banned for 2 items is absolutely ridiculously STUPID.


That's why I said no one knows their criteria for banning people. It could be for 2 returns or it could be for 30 returns. Also, if other people living at the same address with a different a/c has returned stuff, it counts towards the overall total.
I have a BB Passport and so does my son, awesome phone and highly recommended. However, if you want thousands of fart apps then stick with android.
I really do feel sorry for BlackBerry, their main selling point was the qwerty keyboard, now everyone just wants a simple touch-screen phone. Won't be surprised if BlackBerry either totally change their ways or closes down

There new android phone with the physical sliding keyboard phone was amazing and really thought it would sell. But it was WAY and stupidly over priced. Fantastic phone and something ACTUALLY different

They already tried.

Tried models with no physical keyboard. Didn't help them.

Tried one with both physical AND onscreen AND running Android. Which was well reviewed. Didn't help them.

Sounds like they're going down the toilet as a phone maker ....

I've had quite a few returns on my amazon account and never had a hint of a ban. Very strange, not sure how they can ban people for faulty goods?
Well, I will wait and see. Clearly it has be used with various little scratches. I have not sent anything back to Amazon for a couple of years and with the amount of items I buy I doubt they blacklist me.
It would save everyone time if Amazon were to upload a photo of their damaged returned stock, maybe those worth more than a hundred quid. I am sure they could automate something like that.
anyone know if the keyboard is the standard QWERTY or is it the QWERTZ?

photos in the link actually show both!

guess it will be pot luck
No WhatsApp support from end of the year, seen this deal a few days ago but know i would be disappointed by its limitations even at  £132.
most likely this is a practically a brand new phone - bet its only been switched on a couple of times.....unless someone was forced to use it.
Voted hot - but i'm predicting BB need to SERIOUSLY change their game or they'll be consigned to the mobile phone dustbin. BB10 is quite literally a huge, huge failure. BB simply wont be keeping it going - there's no money in it despite what their hardcore followers say/think (and there are no fanboys like BB fanboys!). As another member mentioned, they launched the Priv - with a unique design but astronomical price (higher than an iPhone) despite having a very poor front facing camera that BB admitted they rushed to get the phone out to market. It has been horrible watching a company that were seemingly top of their game reach an all time low.
does this phone actually has a physical keyboard at the bottom?

Yes. My partner has one, and it's HUGE and very square. The keyboard can be swiped like a trackpad as well. It's her work phone and she loves it.... but it is completely insane.

I think its time for them to give up making phones & just stick to developing security software which has always been their strong point.

I have also been under threat a few times even though I exclusively shop at Amazon - a well written email response with justification for my returns (even though shouldn't have to) does the trick.
If someone gave me this phone as a gift then it will go straight on ebay...
I own the passport silver and can swear its a great device. you wont need the laptop most of the time. solid built, decent camera and the tracking pad keyboard is awesome. shame no body want BlackBerry these days. hot from me...

You'd be surprised at how some tech companies can come back from the brink of near extinction with a little outside money and management change. Who would have thought than motorola would still be making phones in 2016, or Nokia for that matter. Come to think of it, some of us are old enough to remember when Apple was on life support.
Don't write Blackberry off just yet.
Would recommend, best phone I ever had, upgraded to the new blackberry priv but still use the passport because I prefer it.
Have an Iphone 5 as a spare work phone see this deal and thought it would be worth a try. Will be delivered Saturday anyone else order one? Hopefully the general condition is not to bad.

also - is it Blackberry OS or Android OS



I believe this one came out before they switched to Android.

As a massive BlackBerry fan - when I saw this before release I thought back then it was the worst looking phone I had ever laid eyes on. I feel about the same now.

They will only survive as a maker of security software; BB OS's will die and so will handsets manufactured for BB.
All gone:) Good luck guys!

Once bitten, twice ...
The screen coming off is worrying I will be testing mine and if I see any signs of this It will be going back for sure. I will just ask for a refund and not try a second. Anyone happy with there's from the warehouse?

Yes , you won. Waste of space on HUKD server for your comment and this reply.
