    Default Company swapped my Z30 for an HTC One.

    Ok so my company swapped my z30 for an HTC one, now I've only owned android phones for the past 5 years with the exception of carrying a z10 for about a month. I can not believe I miss the BB OS 10 so much, I'm thinking of just buying a z30 myself and using it. I didn't realize how much better BB is with email and communication tasks in general. I carry an AT&T LG Optimus Pro for a personal phone, do having the HTC is just a duplicate phone, I can not get to my company email directly I have to go through a web mail service that's not very good. I never realized how many steps or apps I have to open to do some simple things on my HTC. I'm pretty sure I'm going back to BB10....real soon

    Tell all this to whoever is in charge for the IT purchases in your company. Let them know and try to convince them of the powertool that is BlackBerry.
    With the all new BES12 pricing there's no excuse to exclude Blackberries on the workfloor anymore!

    It will certainly make their job a whole lot easier.

    It truly is amazing how used to the Hub and such features one can get, eh? I can totally sympathize! Once you have had the awesome communication power of BB10, it is really hard to switch to something else. I know I have tried using Android phones for a day or two as a loaner and I could not get over how easy BB made it to crank out texts, BBMs, emails, etc. compared to Android.

    Hope you can get your Z30 back soon!

    I'm curious too, did they revoke all BlackBerry's within the company, or just yours?

    I was an android user for years, but I couldn't imagine going back since using BB10.

    Oh I forget to add this piece of information, our Verizon account manager told our girl that is in charge of all 150 of our phone accounts that, and I quote" Blackberry phones are just not what they use to be, you don't want to go with them."

    When you lose the battle of mind shares in people, it is so much easier to convince people you are bad, comparing to convince people you are good.

    Mind share sells phones, period.

    I work at a very large healthcare company and I just found out the other day that are going byod and dropping blackberry and a blackberry is not a choice for byod either. Why hasn't blackberry made offers or did they? The reasoning I heard is they have no faith the company will survive so they aren't willing to take a chance. So sad.

    Yeap. There's no question that HTC One is a media entertainment beast. As for a business phone? I think it's a joke.

    This is always something that has got me. A buddy of mine went through the same thing. His company went BYOD and told him he couldn't use his BlackBerry. Why can't I use my BlackBerry on it? Maybe we should just call it bring your own android or apple device then. So tired of the bad information and BS.

    I think this mindset is what hurt BBRY in the past (thinking that other devices can't be used for business). I don't believe people really think this.

    Someone noted mindshare... how true. Think about it: BBRY has been using primarily BB10 to run its own business, no? LOL.

    I agree. If folks think BBRY is going out of business, BBRY needs to combat it aggressively.

    There are no MDM systems that do blackberry other than BES? Just when BES can manage other systems it gets dropped

    BlackBerry beats Android for being a business phone, so your company listening to that rep is stupid. I mean, BB for Business>Android...

    That does suck, but at least BBRY is being proactive.

    There are several MDM that should manage some of BB10. Not nearly the same as BES10.1. Really stupid Verizon rep. The rep should have been pushing BES10.1. Far more money to be made for all parties in the software then the hardware. Sell a few new devices that will have a 2 year cycle or sell an MDM with large annual licensing fees and external IT support contracts.

    But as we already knew, Verizon management is not what it used to be, Seriously, they just started a new division to oversee and streamline operations in NJ. That new division is located in Tulsa. The way in-store and phone sales reps are trained has become an internet joke. If they are not careful, they will find themselves in a similar predicament as BBRY. In fact, should Blackberry make a device that becomes "the Device" they will gladly let Verizon sell it, because they need to. But if that device takes BB back into the game, BBRY may not be so generous to VZW in a follow up device. BBRY is still reaping the results of the way they acted to many a carrier and developer pre-2009 and many a customer pre-2013. It amazes me how companies in the same space don't appear to learn the same lessons.

    it's crazy that a company ditches a phone that's been out since only what? October?.. not even 6 months. Now they're replacing it with a phone that was announced over a year ago... totally different operating systems. Another user learning curve,.. potentially costs associated with management, accessories, apps, etc. Seems like the person/department in charge of this decision is wasting a lot of time and company money. Bizarre.
