Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

I totally agree with IoannisFCN. nothing to be happy abt just it does state the point that people want old bb back and maybe this will make them think abt it.

 

also i am looking frw to tomorrow when other platforms will join BBM, which from my point of view was a good decision, only as usually question regarding the security of the msg between bbm users with different platforms? 

 

now i only hope that there will be Q10 like a hardware phone with trackpad only running old OS7 something with BES.

I think most of us agree with loaniss that it's a sad situation over people's jobs, etc.

 

Who would not be?

It's all happened so fast Blackberry had no choice but to upgrade their handsets, I'm sorry to see the focus on the problems with the leap to OS10, there is much to celebrate but the tide has moved so quickly Blackberry's loyal fanbase are in danger of being left behind. There's no good news here for anyone who loves Blackberry. I speak as someone who had a Psion organiser in the 80s and a Motorola in the 90s and have seen the wind of change a few times.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

also for the BBMs, BlackBerry will be able to see how many people with BB ID have migrated away. believe that is quite a bit, i am the only one left in my crown that used to be bb now on ios.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

There is one more thing why I want to go back on BB9900.

 

When I receive phone call for some person, for example, John Smith from company XYZ Ltd, I see only name of this person on Q10 screen, not a company name. In that 3-5 seconds when I want to answer I can not recal from witch company John Smith call me and some time I am in embarrassing situation.

Btw, I am working with more then 200 companies and I have more then 1500 contacts in my phone book 

 

On screen of BB9900 there was name of the person and the name of the company!!

 

is this possible to have on Q10 also?

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

@ JSanderys

 

I really believe that you're the one who really doesn't get it.

 

Many contributors here have not been posting opinions, which are "negative nelly whining over and over"! Moreover, a major portion of the comments have just been critical to a hard and software environment around OS10. I believe that to be legitimate.

 

Perhaps we all should not over-estimate this thread. The critival voices here then, are not at a quantity to influence sales and acceptance of a new product. There are enough critical views in the iOS, Android and other worlds, which do not have any material impact on sales and usage. Apparently, this thread, however, seems to be the top of an iceberg.

 

The critical comments (and criticism does not inertly mean negative!) are a result of the experience gained by many experienced and trusted BlackBerry supporters over many years of usage in an evolutionary environment. Technological "revolution" is always a risk, a risk then taken by BlackBerry management. That's the way it is ...

 

I personally still use a 9900, after having discarded my Q10. Please remember that this has been the topic of this thread!

 

There is no reason for thinking in a "when/if" context, although I do believe that a reasonable development within a somewhat updated OS7 environment paired with, as in the past also, updated hardware would have lured many satisfied BlackBerry users to purchase a new device, and then also to stick with this. Adjacent to that, perhaps other ambivalent smart phone purchasers may then also have moved on to BlackBerry within its' niche. Actually, even the iPhone, with a very moderate market share, has a niche position supported by excellent marketing. But, that all is theory.

 

The world moves on and whether BlackBerry will show a screen with GAME OVER will be seen in the future.

 

I persönally regret the development, especially due to the uncertainty of perhaps having to move on to another platform. There is no comparable easy going smart phone in the market as BlackBerry in the past more than 10 years, at least for me as a heavy business user.

Well, Andy, at least I can read my own numerous comments in this thread, me stating that I agree with needing this or that function back, sympathizing that this or that isn't working correctly... AND helping out those who ask.

 

What I haven't done is, as you are, trying to boil this down to personal attacks.

 

Users will get the device that best suits them. For some is it not the Q10. For some it is. And life goes on.

 

Trust me, I get it more than you understand. I am just not going to waddle in complaining about it, and instead I choose to do something about what I can.  What I don't understand is how you can hold so much contempt for another person who just simply doesn't take your path.

JSanders is a glass half full kind of guy on a glass half empty kind of thread. Yes, let's flag up the faults but there's room for diverse views and all the more so when a few helpful solutions are given to some of the issues.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

ok folks, after all the hype, I am NOT awaiting BB to upload my OS, I have downloaded the 'leak' to 10.2.

 

so far so good, following all the instructions, and security wipe in progress.

it is now 21:56, will i have an operating phone within the hour?

 

PS - sorry to hear about the job losses at BB, I hope this Co can come back from the brink, as I prefer the Q10/9900 kb option.

Re: Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900

I sense a vibe of sincerely... yes at times when our device which in most cases is like a life line doesn't ((OBEY uS) we just get **bleep** out...

So for upgraders to BlackBerry this transition is tuff but 1st timers on BlackBerry will lhopefully like it..

I too was too upset but from day 1 I knew I will need time as Q10 is from mars while 9900 was just getting better n better over several years..

Plz let us all hope that BlackBerry Character returns and also upgrades respect the basic soul of the OS7
