Re: Suggestion box for Blackberry???

Group texting is available on 10.2.1. Contact groups are in 10.2.1 as well, but it's a little different than categories. I categorize all my tasks using Remember.

Hope that helps.

Re: BBM Confirmed for WP8 Devices

I have slowly been adding BBM contacts since last year. With this, I could add quite a few more, as most of the family use Lumia phones.

Re: curve 93xx scroll button not working

Unless you plan to replace the trackpad very, very cheaply, the best choice is to buy a new device. Navigating a BBOS device without a trackpad is very inconvenient.

Re: T-Mobile making more enemies in marketing

The answer is likely much simpler: they're sitting on a pile of iPhones and are trying to unload them cheaply. Legere isn't wrong, after all: most BlackBerry users switch phones when they upgrade.
