Is a BlackBerry ID required for a BlackBerry 10 device?

[ Edited ]

I've been a BlackBerry user since the first text pager, and got my BlackBerry ID when it first became available.  However, I support both legacy and BlackBerry 10 devices, and although I know you can use a legacy BlackBerry device without having a BlackBerry ID, I'm not sure if that's the case with a BlackBerry 10 device.  Please don't ask why I wouldn't have a BlackBerry ID - I do!  And don't tell me about the benifits - you'll be preaching to the chior.

 

So the simple question is, can a BlackBerry 10 device be used without connecting it to a BlackBerry ID?

 

Thank you.

You can use it without one but you won't be able to download apps, use BBM, make backups etc. But yes, you can access the device without logging in to a BBID.
