AT&T updates the BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic to
The AT&T version of the BlackBerry Passport replaces those sharp edges on the original model, with smooth, rounded corners. Outside of the cosmetic change, the specs remain the same and the phone keeps that clear 4.5-inch LCD screen and 1440 x 1440 resolution.  BlackBerry promotes the device's wide screen as a huge advantage for those in the enterprise who use their phone to read memos and documents; the hybrid physical and virtual QWERTY makes it a breeze to type out emails and messages.

On Wednesday, AT&T started pushing out BlackBerry OS to the Passport and the BlackBerry Classic. The latter brings back some of the old school features such as the trackpad and function keys that the manufacturer had done away with. And don't forget the awesome physical BlackBerry QWERTY that makes communicating with others so much easier.

The update to BlackBerry OS is available to the AT&T branded Passport and Classic models only. If your Passport is sporting square corners, this update does not apply to you.

BlackBerry OS enhances the Amazon Store. The store is where BlackBerry 10.3 users can find Android apps to run on their handset. The update also fixes an issue with the browser applicable to Work space only activated devices. And lastly, some enterprise owners of the two devices will see an improvement to the email application on their phones.

Let us know if your AT&T Passport or Classic has received the update by dropping us a comment in the box below.

Passports, Qwerty keyboard navigation has gone up another notch with this update. Users can now move from the hub, to the multitasking and home screen without touching the screen. Gestures on the keyboard can also zoom in or out. Hopefully by 10.4 users will be able to do absolutely everything without touching the screen. Reader mode also has the option of reading things out allowed to the user.

It's about time AT&T updated the Passport and Classic! T-Mobile received the Classic after AT&T did, but managed to push out the update before them. What's even better, if you had purchased your Passport or Classic from or, you got the updated pushed to your phone straight from BlackBerry as soon as it was available. I truly wish carriers would implement a timelier update process.

So few people care, it is a waste of space on a blog page to announce this "news". Must be desperate for something to talk about.

Uh oh you could possibly be targeted now.

8. meanestgenius

Looks like the only one that targeted him was YOU.

9. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I have no reason to. Don't stir the pot.

You already "stirred the pot" when you insinuated that someone was going to possibly target him, except that it was you yourself that targeted him with your comment.

11. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I didn't target him. Again I have no reason to. You're just being salty as usual.

12. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

Yes you did. You just don't realize it. And you're being a coward as usual.

13. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You're being paranoid again. That's why you're here trying to stir the pot.

14. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

You're being an instigator and a coward again. That's why you stirred the pot with your initial comment on this article, and now you're denying it because you've been called out on it. I'm not doing this long drawn out "battle" with you right now. We both know that what I'm saying is true. You can deny it all you want, but deep down inside, you know you're a coward and an instigator. Go ahead...continue denying it and prove me right, as usual.

15. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Me being an instigator is just a cover up for you being paranoid. You can call me out until youre blue in the face but it all goes back to you being paranoid. Then don't? You're the one who started this.

16. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

We both know that's not true. You're an instigator, plain and simple. Why else would you assume that someone was going to possibly target someone else? BTW, wouldn't that also imply that YOU'RE the paranoid one, thinking he may be targeted? It sure does. You're also a coward, or you would just own up to being a paranoid instigator.

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I thought you said you were done? If you weren't paranoid you wouldn't be arguing and picking fights.

18. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

I thought you weren't a coward, and yet here you are too afraid to even admit that you're an instigator, even though you mentioned that someone was possibly targeting someone else, with no proof of it whatsoever. If you weren't paranoid that that's what was going to happen, you wouldn't have bothered to even mention it.

19. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You have no room to call anyone a coward. How many times have you been called out only to backtrack and give some bs response? I'm not paranoid, that is you. Second time you've gotten paranoid about something even though you weren't named.

20. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

I have all the room in the world to call someone a coward. Especially you, because you're a coward. I've never backtracked on anything I've said. If I have, post the link to when I did. I'll wait.... YOU, on the other hand, have backtracked plenty of times. The most recent was when you claimed I said something that I didn't, and when I posted the link proving you wrong, you backtracked and posted some BS excuse. How did I get paranoid when I never said anything about you talking about me? You just told on yourself. BUSTED. Thanks for proving that you're an instigator. Lmao! Too easy...

21. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Oh really? How many times have I called you out on being thealphageek as your banned alias? You continued to dodge the question over and over again like the coward you are. Admittedly I lured you into the question last time. I knew your massive ego wouldn't sit by idly. Seriously with all of that hot air you should consider the hot air balloon industry. That argument you're referring to I actually admitted I had nothing so I said you were right for once. Convenient for you to forget that one. Goes back to that big head of hot air. Don't give me that bs. You may not have said it but that's the only reason you're here wasting my time court jester. You were looking for a reason to have a fight in a blackberry article.

You want me to admit to being someone that I'm not. How stupid would I be to do that? Your sick fantasy about me being the alphageek is just that: A sick fantasy. The fact that you have an avatar of an imp that is infatuated with a male kryptonian only serves to amplify the fact that you're infatuated with alphageek. If I'm the alphageek, like you say, post a link proving it. I'll wait...I always post links backing myself up, much like I did on the other article when I called you out on your BS and posted the proving you to be a liar. You are a troll, an instigator and a coward. You constantly troll Samsung and Motorola articles, and now BlackBerry articles. You constantly try and pick fights and take shots at others, and when you're called out on your BS, you either run and lie like the coward you are or try and play the innocent role, like you're being attacked. You didn't "lure" anyone. You instigated a fight and got called out on your BS. And that's what you're full of: BS. About time you're admitting you are indeed an instigator. You only come on to PA to start trouble, and then you run like the coward you are when confronted. Didn't mommy and daddy tell you never to pick a fight if you're a coward? The only reason why you even admitted to your BS that other time is because I POSTED THE ARTICLE for all to read and see that your a liar. There was NO WAY that you could dispute the FACTS thrown in your face, so you copped out. And I will constantly remind you of it, every time you start with your BS. Like now. The only one giving BS here is you. Why else would you make an off-topic comment on a BlackBerry article? Obviously to start BS. And you've been called out by me on your BS again. And always will. Don't like it? Then cut the BS. Plain and simple.

23. Mxyzptlk unregistered

*sprays air freshener * Trying to get rid of that bs smell. You're full of s- meanest. That and that massive ego of yours. Other users called you out for the same thing. Your massive overinflated ego is blinding you. Oh you mean like you do? You never start fights or instigate anything. You're just a victim trying to defend your brand. Bs. An example of you picking fights and instigating. Blah blah blah that's just your ego getting out of whack again. You aren't fooling anyone. You got pretty defensive in that article and in subsequent articles. You were looking for a reason to pick a fight. It's what you do. You're a megalomaniac.

24. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014 The 3 articles I just listed are where you attempted to instigate a confrontation. Let's also not forget that you already admitted to being an instigator in this very article. There are a plethora of articles here on PA where you were either instigating or flat out starting a fight. Don't sit there for one minute and say that you don't do such a thing. The mere fact that you do this and then get defensive and try to deflect what you do is so apparent that a blind man could see it. You are full of more BS than a little bit, and it's also pretty evident that you carry that spray around in an attempt to repel the pungent odor that comes out of your mouth every time you open it. You're projecting your ways onto to me if you're calling me a megalomaniac. That's YOU. And everyone here on PA knows it. I'm not the only one who has mentioned it. I already told you in a previous article that I troll the trolls. YOU'RE A TROLL. Get it? I don't need to manufacture reasons to call you out. You spew enough BS every time you post on Phonearena. And don't think I didn't notice how you have yet to post a link backing up your statement that I'm alphageek. I've provided 3 to back up mine about you instigating. Or is it that you can't and your just spewing more BS? Yeah, that's it. You're spewing BS. It's what most megalomania-filled, full of crap individuals such as yourself do.

27. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Spoken like a megalomaniac. I called it. All you do is regurgitate the same bullsh over and over while doing the exact same thing you accuse others of doing. You troll the trolls? You are a troll.

29. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

I regurgitate the same BS, and you've been coming onto the latest few BlackBerry related articles here telling people they may be targeted.... Oh, pot! The kettle is calling! Next, you'll say that you're not a troll. And we know how much of a lie THAT is. Megalomaniac. Troll. Liar. Instigator. !Diot. That's all you.

30. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It's the same typical bs with you. You're predictable meanest. You must be smoking pot. If I'm the troll then what does that make you? Don't waste my time because you're a troll yourself. A troll with a massive ego and a bad case of megalomania.

32. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

Everything you just said about me can be attributed to you about 100 times over, so once again: Pot! The kettle is calling! And this time Mxy wants to smoke the pot! Lmao!

25. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014 Here's the article where I called you out on your BS of instigating. It's also where I proved that you are a liar. You tried to say I said something that I clearly didn't.

So some guy named alphageek takes credit for my work on a BlackBerry fan blog, and you believe it's me? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahah​ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah​ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah​ahahahahahahaha!!!! Anyone can claim that they're anyone on the's the internet! I can even link you to a PA article where someone accused darrkjedi and the banned account of digitaljedi of being the same person. Bet you believe that's true also, Lmao! It's the same way that you keep on saying that you have a girlfriend, when, based on your VERY OBVIOUS infatuation with a guy named alphageek, you're obviously into men. Lol! If you believe everything you read on the internet, and you obviously do, then I've got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. I'll even give you a discount.

31. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Don't look at me. I didn't even know about the deadberry site until you started posting links to past blackberry articles. I don't need your bridge in Brooklyn. That looks like it's reserved for you Mr Troll.
