    If I could like this post a thousand times, I would...BB10 as an OS is amazing, it has such potential, but BB making hardware has been it's Achilles heel for years.

    Also, unrelated, but I love that Jezza quote in your sig. I'm a chick who loves me some Top Gear.

    I find it a bit sad because I know several Blackberry faithful that are now looking across the ponds at the different devices available...these are people who bled BB, and have never found a reason to cross over to a different platform. I know it obviously isn't a sure sign of a sinking ship, but to me it certainly quacks like that duck. I really and truly hope Blackberry finds some stability, and finds a foundation to build off of again, because as with anything, competition brings feature and function enrichment.

    Blackberry failing does nothing but dent the industry and slow it down.
    I agree. More competition and choice is good for us as consumers. It keeps the tech companies on their heels and constantly feeling like they have to do more. Another very good OS with a lot of users helps foster a more competitive envirionment.

    I remember back in my Bold 9000 days I was a big proponent of iPhone bashing on CB.
    I think that was only around iOS 2 and iOS 3. It's so ironic the way things have become.
    What I like about CB though is that whenever I go back to forums, they keep it movin'.
    Still a busy place and fun forum to visit from time to time. Too bad I'm not interested in
    Blackberry anymore.

    Is JeffH still around on CB? I learned a lot from him.

    What's something you'll miss about your Blackberry that the iPhone just doesn't have right now?

    The LED notifier, Peek and Flow, and the Hub.

    Definitely.

    As someone who started with a BlackBerry, moved to Android, and is now on iOS, I definitely miss the LED notification light. I liked seeing that little light blinking rather than a lock screen notification message.

    Really? I actually prefer the notification pull down on iOS, it's better integrated with apps like Tapatalk.

    The LED light is pretty much the only thing I miss from my BlackBerry days. My Razr HD had one as well, but it was pretty much useless in bright conditions.

    I would say that these are key productivity opportunities as well as the type and go, Expandable memory sd card, on the Q 10. Those are the things that really grab me and I really wanted. But I opted for the iPhone 5, because of the ecosystem that everyone I know listen and if I went back to a BlackBerry I would have to pay for text messaging and I would not be able to integrate with other people as easily.

    The shade is definitely better integrated with apps but I think that was coming with BB10. I miss the peek/flow gestures a lot.

    I don't miss going into the App Store and not being able to find anything I'd want to download.

    Me too ! Me too! I am an Import from CB.
    When BIS was ditched, I jumped ship to iOs. Emails are pretty much all that I need on my phones. I grabbed Exchange support on my Free G Apps account over iOs, before the Feb. 13 deadline. Will probably switch over to office 365 or some local exchange hosting service for all work related ID's, once free G Apps support goes away.

    Oh yeah. Certain people who live overseas and badmouth BB10 24/7 should be gloating.

    Sadly, he actually has a reason to gloat, and knowing him, likely will. The spear through my heart is the confirmation that they lied about BB10 on the Playbook, and have strung users along for a while now

    I'm avoiding Crackberry for the weekend at least. I feel very sorry for the mods, there's going to be a lot of folks self-destructing today.

    I'll just sit here, stroke my iPhone 5, and stop feeling that last twinge of regret over my Z10 and giving up on it without playing the repair game. BB still have their heads in the sand about customer service and quality control.

    And it sucks because BB10 is really good.

    Yah and the troll to end all trolls is throwing himself a party.

    Why CB doesn't throw that troll into the river attached to an anvil I'll never know.

    Probably because they'd have to take a whole pile of others down with him. Not saying that it would be a bad thing, just a logistical nightmare

    Those forums are definitely not a safe place to be today. A lot of people are now realizing that they were heavily mislead by Blackberry management. I'm peed off that they lied to me as a developer, and lied to me as a Playbook owner. But I haven't lost any real money on them yet. I can't imagine how bad some people must be feeling who trusted what management said about BB10 devices selling better than expected

    Worst if all, the ardent defenders are going to be out in full force, and making up for their lost comrades, trying to write the wrongs of all the evil "shorts and shills". Poor mods

    He also keeps gloating that BB "SOLD 4.1 MEEEEEEEEEELLIONS OF 2 AND A HALF YEAR OLD HARDWARE".

    No.

    They SHIPPED 4.1 million legacy pieces of crap. Saying over and over that shipped equals sold makes him look like a fool.

    The gloating is repulsive. And he's been listed as BB fan of the month on their official Facebook not that long ago.
