Talking what did people say when they saw your passport?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there BlackBerry users! I am starting this thread to find out what kind of reactions did you get from family and friends after they saw your passport.

"It's so square! How could you buy a square phone?" - this was one of the funnest reaction I got. And my friend told me the same thing over and over again for almost a week

"Cool! It's so unusual! Does it have android?" - no comment here )

"Omg why didn't you buy samsung note 4?"

Ofc most of them couldn't understand why would I buy a square phone without android or ios or why did I pay that much.

What experiences did you have? Looking forward to hear your happenings, this will be funny

For me, most people start off with saying:
What's that?

When I mention that it is the new Blackberry Passport, their response is usually:
1) Cool/Wow!
2) I didn't know Blackberry was still around
3) Don't you find the shape to be awkward?
4) What do you think of it?

I haven't had it long enough for anyone to really notice it but I CAN tell you what the store reps thought. When I told them what I wanted, they all looked at me like I was high on drugs or something. These are all younger people who no doubt really have no clue but have just "heard" things. I had a Note Edge and one guy said I was taking a step down. I don't agree. I told them all to quit hating because the Passport is a VERY misunderstood device. It was actually kind of funny but I guess a lot of people hate on the BB for the saem reason they love on the iPhone - for no good reason.

Samsung? The phone that came with built in hardware backdoors?

No thanks.

BB? Governments and corporations keep using it, like the White House and the US DoD.

If there was something better than BB they'd be using it.

The propaganda campaign against RIM/BB in the media seems to have fizzled out. I guess RIM either did what they were being told to do, or the other side gave up.

Or else it was decided that ignoring them would be the best way to drive down the share price low enough for a foreign competitor to buy them out.
