Summary: I love the phone and have no regrets. It is unlocked but has AT&T branding on mine. Calls and data work well on Straight Talk. Texting works through google voice and I don't use MMS, so I know there is a way to set that up but I haven't needed it.
Pros: Love the keyboard, love using Straight Talk on an unlocked Blackberry, quality of the hardware is very nice and substantial (not cheap or plasticy). Q10 software is great, apps load quickly. Phone is responsive.
Cons: The touch screen is very responsive and coming from a non- touch Blackberry, it is taking a period of adjustment. I really wish I had the "band" back - the track pad, call and end keys. I particularly miss the end call key.
Unlocked, INTERNATIONAL phone a great disappointment.

Summary: ordered this and sent it overseas for a friend living and working in South Africa. So the shipping, duties, and fees are pretty extensive. So imagine my great disappointment when the phone gets to its destination and it doesn't work. Buttons freeze up. Data won't work. Phone freezes up and won't do anything... they must turn it off and turn it back on to unfreeze it. Too costly to return. So, we are stuck with a bad phone. Very disappointed.
Summary: The phone is advertised as a SQN100-3 model (the one I want to have). When get it on the box was sated the same, unfortunately on the phone itself it was mentioned to be a SQN100-1 model..........I don't want it like this as I can not use it. I started immediately the RETURN procedure.
Summary: Without doubt the BlackBerry Q10 is the best QWERTY keyboard smartphone on the market. It's also arguably one of the most expensive keyboards on the planet, with little in the way of stand out features to justify its cost. You'll get more for your money elsewhere.
Summary: This review is based on my husband's opinions, since it was bought for him. He had the 9300 most recently, so this was a big change for him. He only uses Blackberry phones because he needs the easy email features. This phone took some getting used to, but he's really happy with it. He likes that the emails always remain on-screen, just behind the "curtain" so he can get to them easily. The touch screen makes things easier and harder in a way.
