    ATT will continue BIS for now. Even without BIS, the 9900 works just fine as a phone and PDA. There are workarounds for email. I don’t use my phone for browsing, but I could use Opera and import updated certificates if I wanted to.

    And we are all very happy that you are ok with it, but do we agree that yours is a non standard use case for a phone in 2019? it is great that you do not need more, like apps and other bs, but unfortunatelly the majority does

    That's what I said just 2 posts ago. I'm in the minority.
    But I wonder if there is a way to successfully market a "disconnect" pkb phone, such as the likes of the Verizon Palm 2018 or the Lightphone, but with a pkb, of course. There is increasing recognition that we in society are becoming addicted to our smartphones.

    Just don’t login to apps or don’t even download them. Addicted versus addiction is very different. There’s no real market for what you describe as there’s no real way for the commercial viability of the niche.

    Others here @Shuswap have written extensively about using BBOS hardware without BIS if that’s what you so desire. I’m not sure how long either AT&T or BB is going to support BIS after 12/31/2019 and it requires both of them supporting.

    BB10 might last a bit longer but we don’t really know since officially BB still lists 12/31/2019 for EOL for both systems. There’s been all kinds of debatable optimism here but .......

    The PlayBook system has been down after factory reset for a month. There’s been one single reply from a BB associate 2-3 weeks ago. Check out KaiOS with flip phones.

    Yup, same. Hopefully the weight of this phone won't be too heavy for the USPS truck to handle.

    I am hopeful, but not optimistic about getting the phone much ahead of schedule. I hope I am wrong as I am very eager to get my hands on this thing!

    There is an official statement in the project updates that they are ahead of schedule and will start shipping as soon as production completes. It makes hope for the best, whatever that really means...
    I am actually fine if it really comes at the end of december

    So what date was the phone supposed to be out before and what date is the phone supposed to be out now?

    I’m asking specifically month/year and whether it’s now behind schedule or ahead schedule.

    Have you received email for actual release date?

    Nope... All the info available is that might be ahead of schedule and they will ship as soon as production is finished.
    I guess they will communicate when they will start shipping

    It was first announced as Jan of 2020, but soon after moved up to Dec of 19. Now they are saying that they are ahead of schedule and they will start shipping as soon as the first round of production is finished(in production presently). They did not say what that date is

    Thank you. I like to participate in discussions and information on this device is hard to find since it’s crowdsourced. I don’t want to express any opinions that wouldn’t be somewhat factually based or spread false rumors. We already get enough of that.

    Working through the mailbox I noticed a backer email of Titan of a week ago. It lists the backers who need to update their address and/or need to fill out the survey.

    The list suggests the amount of backers to be below 3900 people!?!
