Hi,

Working for a Mobile Airtime Distributor here in the UK I feel I could provide a lot of support to alot of users here. However, I currently have to surf through the various threads to find anyone that might be stuck with a UK network and thier Blackberry Device.

Would it be possible to maybe create 'Sub Forums' for various Location based Networks?

USA Networks
UK Networks
European

So on and so forth.

I know this might cause a lot more work, just thought I would suggest it.

Apart from that, I have been so impressed with this place over the last 18 months I have been reading it. A really well built, thought out and staffed forums/ community. Congratulations.

That would be a heck of a lot of forum areas... and I'd argue that the amount of work it would take to add such forum areas would outweigh the benefit gained from doing so.

Blackberry is pretty much carrier agnostic and it's very rare that you find a Blackberry issue that is specific to one carrier, or even group of carriers.

I have to disagree.

I am constantly inundated with a lot of issue that network specific. Especially as here (UK) alot of consumers buy branded handsets and not SIM free.

I agree it would take a lot of work - but it was only a suggestion, nothing more.

Thanks for the suggestion, Kris.

It's been bandied about as to doing that, but the consensus remains that most issues do cross carrier network lines, and the additional forums here would make it quite crowded around here more than it is now and hard to navigate.

Unfortunately thats the problem with VBulletin Boards - No room for 'Child Boards'

No worries. Thanks for the response anyway.
