    Default When BB10 comes to your carrier how long will you keep your 9810 ???

    How long before you let it go? Will you keep as a back up. Give to friend or try to sell online? Maybe I should keep using it and wait for Milan?

    Default It's gonna be tough

    It will be hard to give up my 9810 but I am willing to take one for the team. I will definitely be keeping it as a back-up because I feel Blackberry finally got it right with the 9810. It literally took going through two Storms (watch the pun) and a 9800 to get to where it is now. I really think the Touch slider is the best of both worlds. Wasn't there a guy doing concepts with a device called the "Blade" now that phone I would buy in an instant!! New Years Wish List: another slider with a larger keypad and a bigger screen, or something like a Samsung Note II for BB that would be my dream device. That way I could lose the Laptop.

    Default When BB10 comes to your carrier how long will you keep your 9810 ???

    Until RIM produces an equivalent BB10 slider, I will be holding on to my 9810. I dislike screen keyboard's. I bridge control my playbook just to avoid using one. If they don't then I probably go for the keyboard unit (aka bold) when my 9810 finally needs replacing.

    As much as I love my 9810, it will be decided on how the on screen keyboard for BB10 feels. That and if I have the cash.

    But no matter what I get, the 9810 will be on standby.

    I will be waiting until the majority of the BB10 models are released.
    I want to see what all the different models offer.
    Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my 9810, but I feel that BB left a few things out with it. Such as NFC. If I would have waited another month for the 9900 to come out, then I would have had NFC. So I wont be making the same mistake with BB10.
    When the switch does happen, the 9810 will be my trusty sidekick/replacement phone if needed.

    I will keep my 9810 as a back-up when I am able to upgrade in June of 2013. I will then sell my 9800 or donate it to someone in need of a smartphone.

    My upgrade is in April so its a no-brainer! I kept my old 9800 for the battery and keep it charged from time to time to make sure it's still good and ready if its needed for my 9810. I really hope that down the road they make a BB10 Slider Torch as I'm so used to it and never cease to love it!

    I'll keep it until the BB10 slider comes. My contract only expires in August, so timing is on my side. Although it's gonna be a loooong 8 months, drooling over BB10 forum posts.
