you could get on the antiques roadshow with this!
This is one of the phones (OS's) that WhatsApp just ended support for last month. The specs are decent - 16GB storage and 2GB RAM for £40 would be a nice deal if it were an Android phone. But the OS really makes it difficult going forwards.

Agreed. Hardware is fine for the price. Screen, camera, RAM etc can't be beaten. But the OS kills this.
I still have mine from new, its a great mp3 player, alarm clock and backup phone as well.
From memory (maybe wrong) , I think you can flash android/cyanogenmod to these
You can install an android 3rd party App Store. I can't remember the app name, something like onemobilemarket, but it installs all android apps.

Whatsapp support has been extended until June, 2017. So you can use Whatsapp until then. After then, it's possible to download an old APK and install an older version of whatsapp, seeing as BB10 can run android apps that run on android 4 or lower (jellybean).

That being said - many apps require Google Play Services or are slowly in the process of being updated to android 5. I think you'll get another 6-12 months out of BB10 and then it'll be dead. If you don't care for apps and want a phone for calling and texting, they're great. Blackberry released a patch for BB10 recently and are expected to release at least one more. So i'm voting hot.

Cobalt Google Play Store?
Signal works, Telegram will always work. Great burner.
Could be good as a replacement work phone to the awful Microsoft 550 my work gave me
How well does the browser work on this?
Bought was looking for back up had £20 nectar so £19.99 not bad
I remember when this came out! Not much change from £400!
Ordered as a spare phone.
I don't even use whatsapp. As long as it makes calls and texts its good for me
No charger/accessories included

If you only need calls and texts, why are you even buying a smart phone??
Buy a Nokia brick, it'll last 3 weeks between charges without use, and a week with!
Would I still be able to continue downloading my emails on this? Not really interested in apps on a phone.
Had one for work. Pretty awful was even difficult to answer calls!

​browser is probably one of the best around
Final question - which is better this or a q10? Both around same price on eBay.

Best BBRY touch phone is the Z30 but its twice the price of this.

where ?
Get a decent bumper cover, the z10 is notorious for one drop screen gone!! I know - mine is sitting here as incoming calls only.

Great OS and browser.
Out of stock
buy a moto g instead
Used to have these as our old company mobiles. Loads were sent back with the same issue where the audio stops working through the earpiece. (I do mean loads as well..! into the hundreds.) Pretty robust phones while they work though.
great price but its blackberry is sucks
BB10 is the best OS out there, or was. Definitively on launch. Uncrackable.

eBay?


Na £85+
So you're saying £2.50 voided my comment? LOL
Mines in very good nick. If memory serves the only issue with these is not great battery life but that isnt an issue for me.
Mine arrived yesterday in good condition but doesn't recognise sims been in touch with them see what they say
They appear to be French, what sims have you tried?

​The OS is the best thing about this phone. It's the lack of apps that kill it. BSOS10 is still the best multitasking mobile operating system around. It's a pleasure to use unlike smeggy Android (that I'm using on my DTEK60 right now).
