If Rim fails, what platform are you switching too ?
I'm A huge fan of blackberry this isn't a hate topic, i'm just posing the question that if Rim fails with blackberry 10, what platform would most of you go too ? I would personally go to Android or Windows mobile but that's just me.

I don't believe RIM will fail. I hope to be on a BB10 device by Fall 2013, if not sooner.
If, for whatever reason, BlackBerry OS (whether current or BB10) are no longer on mobile devices, I believe Windows Phone would be my next favorite option. There's a lot of potential with Windows 8.
That said, I deeply hope to be RIM's customer for as long as possible, even if that means going down with the ship.
But that ship's not going down! Bring on BB10!

I tried these 5 operating systems BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, Palm and Windows Mobile phones.
I use the Blackberry for the BBM, and the iPhone for all the other apps, if RIM does succeed with the BB10 i will drop my iPhone, and only stay with the Blackberry.
Al other 3 platforms are just not worth purchasing.

I don't see RIM failing. I think the Canadian government will allow a non-Canadian company to come in and take over or merge with RIM if things don't turn around.
But if things stay the course and RIM actually concentrates on the corporate customer and leave use BIS customers out in the cold I would look at trying a Windows phone. I know a few people who really like it and I think Microsoft so wants to get back into this that they will throw a lot of money at it.
Here are my choices...

Never will I use an iPhone or any Apple product. I'd go back to carrying a roll of quarters and use pay phones, if they still exist.New York Yankees

^ yeah I will never buy a toy like the Iphone, and No the Canadian government has said they want to keep research in motion Canadian . Correct me if i'm wrong but i live in Canada and that's what i heard.

If Rim failed, then it would take away one of my hard descisions. I would go completely to Android! I have now a BB9700, BB9900, BB9930, my NexusS (tmo) and my Epic 4g(on Page+). I like both the blackberries and the Android phones !
Actually I prefer to call my cells phones as PDA's with phone priveledges. I can't just look at my cells phones as "cell phones" cause this implies no other usage except for calling. Today's smart phone have a lot of stuff you can do with it besides calling.

If I ever have a bad dream where BlackBerry no longer exist I would go with WP8.

Well if RIM were suddenly out of business today, then I would probably have to go with WP, maybe some type of Android device again.....not sure. Nothing is out or coming that I am interested in.
