I keep booting my blackberry playbook every few weeks to see if BB 10.0 is available. Nope. Then I search for a few of the top apps that I use on my Android phone. Nope, not there. (And yes I know how to do the APK conversion but no I'm not going to that much trouble since most Android apps aren't compatible.)

Nope, phone is great and runs circles around most other current gen phones. Couldn't be more happy from a new OS launch. Try it sometime.

Circles lol. That's cute. Well at least you had a good salesman.

There are many phones on the market that are a faster than any of the Blackberrys. Some of which are 6-9months old. Throw in a GS4 or similar to the mix and Blackberry insured a dying platform. Good luck getting any support in 12-24 months as well. Might as well just buy a Windows phone. At least we know Microsoft won't be dying anytime soon. Same can't be said for Blackberry.

Worked like a charm! I downloaded JourneyLite to my iPhone and changed the user agent to the first custom field in the original post. Did the gogo login via Journey. And now I'm posting via the slickdeals app on my way to NYC. Thanks so much!
Great thanks for confirming journeylite worked for you, I hadn't tested on an iOS device yet. Enjoy!

Question for Iphone/Ipad users. I have downloaded Journey Lite and plan to use this on my IPAD during my flight on Sunday to California. Just wanted to check, did you enter the entire post string below(minus the quotation marks) as your user agent, or just some part of it?

"Mozilla/5.0 (BB10; Touch) AppleWebKit/537.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.0.9.773 Mobile Safari/537.10"

Anyone try the other user agents with Journey Lite or another Ipad compatible browser with success? Just trying to make sure I get this down pat, don't want to be without internet for 5 hours!

You might as well just enter "blackberry" - as that's still working a lot easier to type on an ipad. You don't need quotes. You could also email yourself the string so you have it incase you need to copy/paste. I believe a user agent of just BB10 will work too.

Once you use journeylite to log onto gogo you can use any browser or apps you want, the journeylite app is only for the initial connection.
