    The title says it all, really.
    Have any of you had any experience with Blackberrys? Pros? Cons? Other things? I'm curious to know.

    Had the q10 but sold it as i wanted an android phone and was tired of sideloading it.
    Was tempted to get the blackberry classic it looked stylish but the specs were awful and wanted a phone I could play games so went for the s6 edge.
    Looked at the priv phone and it's massive would like it if it did have android market instead of blackberry os 10.

    No apps.

    No whatsapp or Facebook.

    They break easily too.

    No phone/tele/whatever subscription in this country is compatible with the Blackberry phones.

    It's not hard getting used to at all. I've also had a phone with a touchscreen since the iPhone 3gS. I just simply prefer keyboards.

    What is whatsapp?
    No FB would be a relief to be honest.
    Ah. Well THAT is a problem...

    Whatsapp and Facebook will be breaking up with the BlackBerry platform by the end of 2016.

    So owning a blackberry is pretty much useless.:bored:

    If the only actual cons are no apps, not facebook-compatible - or any other social media for that matter - then I honestly think it'd suit me just fine. Those things are not cons to me.

    The new passport models don't have small screens or keys, so that's not a problem.

    When BlackBerry trended back in 2011 or something me and all my sisters got one, coincidentally, they all started off fine and then slowly deteriorated in terms of loading literally anything, the scroller would break and not respond, the phone easily overheated, and not to mention the frustration of it randomly turning on and off.
