    Advice on which pre BB10 phone to try

    Hi I am looking for advice which pre BB10 Phone to try?, I have owned and used every make and operating system including the new BB10 ones, leaving only the BlackBerry legacy O.S. to try, am I insane? Yes beyond help, any serious suggestions would be appreciated as I like to try every thing I can, and can pick up early phones for very little cost, many thanks.

    I'd have to suggest the Bold 9900.

    To me, it was the best legacy BlackBerry device. Everything worked the way one would expect it to. Plus, that keyboard was amazing. Not Q10 great, but definitely close.

    The Bold 9900 is an amazing Legacy device. I am still using it. The keyboard is the best QWERTY keyboard for the legacy devices out there.

    While the 9900 is great, I can't help but throw the Bold 9700 into the mix. That little thing lasted days on one charge and was built like a rock.

    It was the BlackBerry I fell in love with and will always have a soft spot in my heart.

    Hi AVPTI, thanks for your advice on which pre BB10 Blackberry to try, you added the Bold 9700 as well as 9900,
    I have found a new bold 9700 in white/ unlocked for ( 80 Canadian dollars) seemed worth a try, so I can experience BBOS,
    I like BB10 on my Q5 addicted to a keyboard now, hoping for a larger Q5/Q10?

    And thank you to everyone who made suggestions which pre BB10 to try,

    If you're going to say 9700 - You'd be much better off with a 9780 or 9790. These devices have the same form factor AND newer versions of BlackBerryOS.

    The 9790 also has a touchscreen as an added bonus.
