I am also panicking but only because I think 9900 will be the last true blackberry. I am thinking about buying them in bulk and stocking them so I can keep using them because there is nothing else that works like Blackberry's Mail app..

We have a bunch of people using the new Z10 and so far they are happy with the new phone including the push email service. Like any new device it's takes a bit to work out the bugs. I 'm waiting for the keyboard version only because i like to have one.

You do realize BIS will be shut down eventually and your 9900 will cease to work, right?

I don't think so. At least not until OS10 is up to par with OS7.1.. Sad but true. Newer, upgraded, faster OS is no match to older, complete OS.

Also, I don't mind if BIS is shut down, I use BES for work, and for hotmail/gmail, I can always 3rd party e-mail apps or forward them.

BlackBerry has stated that BES and older BIS will be around for 5 years.

Hyedipin - my guess is the carriers will do everything they can to accelerate the move to BB10 plans and devise.

WOW!!

Really, that's all I can say about this.

OP, this is not true, I can send a broadcast message that says if you broadcast this message you will win a million dollars, does that mean you will? Or if you broadcast this message a cure for cancer will be found... It is not true. Don't believe everything you read...

Sounds like OP needs better BBM friends that are not trying to scam everyone

BlackBerry will never request you to BC everyone in a broadcast to ensure service

Because some other forums like to lock threads if the mods disagree with the content.
