Do you guys (MODS) think it will be useful to have a section in the forums or a Sub-Forum called : Carriers & Networks for users to post their questions about service, outages, availability (of hardware) and stuff related to their network and I think it will filter the search options better... Like an T-Mo forum, Verizon, At&T , Sprint, O2, Voda, Orange...etc.???

Default no!!!

That forum is more of a mess of different topics... I mean for example a T-Mobile(any carrier/provider) forum ONLY BLACKBERRY RELATED

Discuss... plans, features, hardware ...etc.

serrano_yejo, that was discussed recently (as has been suggested in the past) but you get into the problem of SO MANY various forums and sub-forums that it becomes difficult to use for many. For example, a question about Suretype on a Cingy 8100 is very very likely going to have the very same answer as a 8100 on TMo. If the question and answer is posted over in TMo, but this user is searching around the Cingy site... you get the picture.

It seems better suited by models right now. The biggest confusion comes with the 8800s and 8830s, 8700s and 8703s, etc., and their differences. Even then, the slight feature difference of the 8800 and 8830 doesn't really make it necessary for a whole new forum.

EDIT: and I moved this over to the Site Suggestion section.

It's not a bad idea but I think sometimes you can subforum yourself to death and information gets lost in the clutter...

I think our current granularity is too much, to be perfectly honest
