It may be to late for me (and others) to get BB10. RIM's bad timing.
I don't think that it is too late for Blackberry. I have moved away from my Blackberry that I have used forever but am looking forward to getting the new OS in my hands. It is too bad that they weren't able to come out with the new device and OS before the holiday season but I feel good with them holding it back until it is ready.
If the new devices and OS don't stack up I don't know how they will recover but until RIM is no longer I will always believe.

My contract expires in January so for people like me, it is perfect timing

It was actually a really smart move for the obvious reasons. Most people like yourself are to blind to see it. How about you keep your speculation to yourself and just sit back and watch the RIMpire strike back. Also, remember Apple went through this same phase back in the day. It is just another company's turn to see if they can revive themselves. Plus you have no clue as to what marketing skeems that maybe employed by the carriers. on top of that you have your hardcore BB fans and we are not as few as most think. The rest of the US is just blind. Like we are on most things.

I just bought a Windows phone because I couldn't deal with my Android. That I-crap is a toy, what a joke. I had a 9930 and that phone was awesome except for the small screen. This new BB10 is gonna blow the doors off the competition and I am buying one off contract as soon as it comes out

And as for your fan comment, i have never walked into a android, Windows 8, or iphone shop to even CONSIDER replacing my BlackBerry that I have had on a three year contract. I know I want bb10 after researching it and will be finding a way to have it. If it means I have to wait until my contract is up in December 2013 then I wait. And that will not be the fault of RIM. By the sounds of it you considered something else, so the fan jab you made should more reflect on you about any company being doomed. I am at least aware enough to know rim with qnx and it still leading industry security is not going anywhere. Lay off the us hate media for awhile and you will see rim has a bright future.
Apple was dying because of the lack of Macs selling and brand awareness at that point not because of phones (lol.)
They are doing something they did before and those phones barely sold at all so now I am speculating and am blind? Maybe those eye patches over your eye need to be removed, all you see is black.
You also don't have to be a jacka$$.
I didn't blame the company for anything. youw own post is in your head. All I was saying was that their launch is bad timing. How is that blaming? Need a dictionary? yes it's over your head.
There also seems to be a lot of people acting like the U.S. is blind because 3 fansites online said Rim is doomed now everyone things that everyone who is not "RIM IS SAVED" is blinded by the MEDIA saying RIM is doomed when i have been to many states and heard no such nonsense until now so nice discriminating.

"Lol so like, we have this thing where whenever someone at a store when talking about your account, or the Phone, talks with you, each is recorded about what they advised to you. It says here that the last person who advised you told you that it was a contract plan"
then when i stated that was crap and asked here to tell me what the people BEFORE that person advised me, since you know, they have to record it down each time for HQ, she backpeddled and said:
"Well we can't help you over the phone you have to go to a store."
Telling her clealry again for the 5th time I was already at the store.
Then she says "Well, you were told that you were on a contract and not a prepaid plan."
Then I say that so I was lied to? then she says:"I am not saying that anyone was lying."
then I said was I misinformed, she hesitated and said "I have it right here that you were advised multiple times"
Yeah advised multiple times, when she only mentioned one person, who lied and wrote something else down, and when i asked for a supervisor, she said hold on, and when we got to the above part of the conversation she said she was in charge. lol. Then it went back in a circle and I told her how useless her life might be and she got mad and I hung up.
And here I am,

Well i suggest taking it up with the FCC.
This is what they are around for.
drop them an email, let Verizon know you are taking it up with the FCC as you believed you were getting a prepay phone but received a pay monthly. they may be more receptive then

BB10 will be great, rim is now being innovative and we as fans of this company are soon to have the newest latest os out there, how cool is that? Thanks for your views.

Yes. everyones contract ended December 2012. Everyone got a galaxy s3 or iphone, and now we have to wait until December 2014 until the cycle begins again. ITS TOO LATE FOR RIM! Mobile phone outlets and kiosks will be converted into muffin stands in the mean time for your convenience during the wait.
