April 26th is stated by blackberry under account management when you login to your portal. May 17th is mentioned in the revised DR agreement.

do you know if we need to do something when this became effective?
should we sign a new agreement, fix our dynamic licensing script or something else or
the transactions will be painless? (except for the 10%)...

'on or about April 26th' was supposed to be the date when we needed to agree to a new agreement when logging into the vendor portal but now it is May 1 and I've still not seen the new agreement. Anybody seen it yet or is it some glitch with my account?

I have wrote to the bb support to ask when the revenue share will be lowered to 70% and when the customers can buy our software using credit card/carrier billing.
This is the answer:
Thank you for contacting the BlackBerry Customer Contact Center.
The 70/30 revenue share goes into effect on May 17th. We do not have an exact date yet for the credit card/carrier billing at this time.
I really don't like this answer.
I "accept" the lowered revenue share if customers can start buying with carriers billing and credit card immediately after the revenue share is lowered.
I'm really disappointed from that behaviour from rim at the moment, I hope that the "new service" will became available really soon after the may 17th.
