    If you are in the market for one

    yeah, but what are the odds that those 5 people also visit ozbargain ;)

    • +8 votes

      I am one of those 5 :) Been waiting for a price drop so I could upgrade from my Blackberry Classic

      •  

        Genuine question - why do you still use Blackberry? Just love the phones too much? I've never used it so I'm not knocking it.

        • +1 vote

          I still use Blackberry because I like having a keyboard on my phone it is pretty much the only brand that still makes them. The fact that it is the most secure phone is a bonus too :)

    • +27 votes

      According to our stats, there are around 130-180 daily sessions of BlackBerry users. Not much, but they are indeed there :)

      •  

        I am one of them. Visit ozbargain on my Z10. Excellent phone and the BB10 OS is top notch :)

    I own one. Good fone. Keyboard a tad small but otherwise good. Camera takes great shots

      Actually looks like a pretty decent phone tbh

  •  

    Definitely a deal.
    Been looking at this and the passport recently.
    Look at staticICE for an example of common pricing.

    Also, any cashback sites/Qantas Mall/Velocity mall with this?

    Now if only a deal for the passport could be found!

  • +3 votes

    I'm a priv user myself, recently upgraded from BB passport. App wise, it's definitely a lot better with native Android OS and Google services support.
    Hardware wise, built quality not as great as Passport, keyboard a bit soft, back cover looks like carbonfibre but in fact feels like cheap rubber.
    Edged gorilla screen is pretty good, poor battery though

    •  

      Wait until the Marshmallow upgrade which is being rolled out now, it improved the battery life dramatically on mine (running the beta).

  •  

    SO no issues with the Band etc? Since it's an unlocked phone by AT&T

  • +1 vote

    will this get further price cuts moving forward? really want to try this as i never used black berry before.

    •  

      The cheapest price I've seen prior to today for the STV100-3 model is low $800s from AU/HK stores so this is a pretty big drop from the normal price, it's still US $649 (About US $855) on Shop Blackberry. I think this is a once off drop to move stock rather than a new price so I wouldn't bank on anything close to it anytime soon.

      •  

        thanks @hamza23 two things stopping me now
        1) AT&t bloatware on the phone ( i can remove if i root this)
        2) In the description it says warranty uncertain ( Paypal might help if something goes wrong i guess

      Well don't get this phone if you want to "use Blackberry" because its an Android phone with a couple of BlackBerry apps for security.

      You can still buy new phones running BB OS10 but the future of this OS is very uncertain (well, it's almost certainly finished after a few security/maintenance revisions) .

      •  

        Thanks, i actually meant hardware

    •  

      If you're not already a BlackBerry faithful, I'you might want to consider holding off.
      The Priv, whilst a good phone, was released at a high price point, which hurt uptake, and is taking its time to fall in price.
      John Chen has alluded to releasing a cheaper model handset in their next release, though when that is, is still open to conjecture.

      Personally, I love my Z10, which is by far the most seriously business orientated phone I've ever used, that includes iphones (lol) and the Nexus 5.
      If you're wanting a phone for apps to instagram, pininterest and a variety of other frippery, stick with the mainstream.
      If you're wanting something that gives you extra business productivity, look at getting a BlackBerry

      •  

        Thx for the tip :)

      •  

        Well this is full android with extra security of blackberry plus a good track record f0r security updates which is rare in android space

        •  

          What's the extra security of blackberry when it's just running Android? (Genuine question)

        •  

          @CVonC: not a techie but I know that blackberry has couple of apps for security and some system level integration. Plus so far with this phone they are nearly up to date with nexus in terms of security fixes and pathces.

    •  

      Camera is a disappointing. Might as well get a G4.

      •  

        Seems to contradict seijai though. Subjective I guess.

        •  

          The camera app has been updated a few times since i bought the phone, the last being last week when phone updated to marshmellow

          The camera is a little slow but quality wise i would say on par with my samsung s6

    Wow, just surprised to see that Blackberry still exist and manufacture phones.

      USA government is endlessly loaning them money and writing off bad debt, they are the mining industry of the phone world.

      • +6 votes

        USA government

        Blackberry is a Canadian company. If you are going to make up a story then you should probably say the Canadian government.

        loaning them money

        The US government isn't loaning them money. I'm not an accountant, however Blackberry had something like 3 billion dollars in cash on hand last I read.

        Blackberry isn't just a phone company, the majority of their revenue comes from software, services & access fees (not hardware/phones). Hardware division is still struggling, but even still they have posted profitable quarters recently - they aren't going anywhere.

    I was shocked to see a client pull out one of these the other day, presuming that Blackberry was dead.

    Obviously not! I used to have a Blackberry Bold. It was a good, solid phone with excellent build quality that was very good at what it did- communicate.

    Eventually, I caved when I felt left out by the Apple and Android appstores. Might consider a Blackberry again in the not-to-distant future!

    • +1 vote

      Just to be clear this is a pure android phone made by blackberry

      •  

        Which is why I might consider a Blackberry in the future- it's no longer restricted to the tiny Blackberry App Store.

        As long as they have comparable build quality to that of my old BB Bold!

  •  

    Saw on Reddit that the phones may actually be secondhand and at&t branded phones have to be on at&t network to receive updates!

    •  

      Yeah seems a bit risky re the updates and everything else, especially with marshmallow rolling out - calling it unlocked seems misleading. I'd pay a couple hundred more and get a STV100-3 model from HK that gets updates immediately and has some warranty and all the Aus bands - but then it wouldn't be a bargain :)

      •  

        True. Tis a bit heartbreaking as I would like a Priv but they are so expensive.

      •  

        Which BB are you on now Hamza?

        •  

          This phone, Blackberry Priv. Got it late last year from T-Dimension eBay during the 15% off CELEBRATE2015 deal. It's going well, marshmallow update was very good for it also.

    After having been predicted for some time, the death of the BlackBerry 10 has now arrived.

    The company has announced it will no longer make phones featuring its own operating system.

    Instead it will now concentrate on establishing itself as a major Android device manufacturer, with an eye on business rather than consumer handsets.

      Never in the actual anouncement (such journalism Dailymail) that they say anything about BB10. So let's just jump the gun yet.

  •  

    I probably should have done more research before going ahead.. Seems we wont be able to upgrade to Android 6.0 without an active AT&T sim..

    :(

    Other then that big negative I am looking forward to it..

    Apparently we can use the autoloader to update without AT&T network. Can anyone verify these claims?

    Just read Qualitycellz dropped the price to US $331.13 shipped, currently showing as 641 sold in 24 hours already.

    Hopefully someone posts that up as a deal, was wondering how those who purchased it from this deal went updating it to marshmallow due to it being an AT&T model?

    •  

      would want to know if AT&T can update as well, although autoloader seems to be working for update outside of the network…..

  •  

    For those who purchased this AT&T Priv, some good news if you weren't able to update it: If you purchased an unlocked AT&T Priv your updates will now come directly from BlackBerry
