I have gotten the old "whatcha gonna do now" thing already and I have only had my BB for a week. I came from a Treo and I had thousands of problems with that thing. I suspect RIM will be paying the money. I am a three letter Gov't employee and I am one of the ones here in the U.S. that won't be affected.
And yes there are people everywhere still using these things.
