Im here in Florida, US. I love blackberry, but nobody has a bb phone. You cant find it nowhere! Walmart, target, bestbuy, hhgregg, whatever! Nobody sells bb anymore! Everybody that i talk to say its garbage, nobody wants it anymore! There is no apps, uou hae to sideload all the apps that you want! Mind hust go to apple or android.
What do i do?
What to do? Well, follow the crowd to wherever they go, or carve your own path with the best hardware around.
Are you an individual or just one of the crowd? I personally love busting out my Q10 and putting that other crap to shame in functionality and interface. I was showing a HTC friend of mine hoiw I access my desktop with link, keyboard shortcuts, time shift, etc, etc and he was amazed. But he's such a shallow dude, that he just won't get what most people don't have. I couldn't imagine being that kind of person. Personally, I will never be a sheep. I bleed BlackBerry through and through and always will.
For you, make your own choice. Just choose based on YOU.
But thats the thing.. I wont give up on my bb. But u cant get any support around here. Tmobile ist even sellig anymore, u wont find anything around.. Do i get y z10 and keep sideloading all i want from android crap? I love the interface, the os10, etc, but theres no support around the globe whatsoever.
It's a predicament for sure. One that I'm glad I don't have to experience.
Buy your Z10 wherever you can. Sometime around the end of the month you'll no longer need to sideload all those Android apps. You may need to sideload 1 app, simply to allow you to download and install the others from Google Play, but that's about it.
As far as support goes, as long as you know you can't rely on your Carrier for support, you can get it here.
It all depends on what YOU like. For example, I LOVE using my BlackBerry Bold 9900, and don't care what others say. It gets the job done for what I need. It's great for typing (without looking ), easily manages texts, calls, messages and a lot more!
BlackBerry is just beginning to grow again and become number one once again. All companies have down turns. As an example, Samsung (eww) recently reported that they never achieved their target for the quarter.
Your best bet is to go through a carrier and buy the phone from them!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy using your BlackBerry!
Please my post if it has helped you. Much appreciated!
