    Just wanted to ask what you guys think, since I sincerely think the end for BlackBerry is near (I don't really want to), but in the worst case scenario, which platform will you go to? Or will you stick to your current BlackBerry 10 device for the next 2 years? I personally want to keep my device for the next 2 years and after that I don't know what I'm gonna do :s

    Stick to my BlackBerry 10 device for as long as possible
    Afterwards maybe buy another second hand one or look at what's available on the market then. Probably WP8 tho

    Honestly? If things really go south I'm gonna go add about 4 lines to my plan, and pick up another 4 Q10s. Those will never be used, and I'll swap 'em out as needed when my current Q10 quits working. So I should be good for about 8 years at least. After that? Probably android.

    Probably android as I really loathe Apple as a company and WP's just don't fire me up

    If BlackBerry goes away, and my z10 dies probably android/wp. My blackberry will probably go into a drawer.

    Android for me. I used to say iPhone, but iOS 7 has currently killed that for me.

    Only after this phone turns to dust would I get something else; probably Ubuntu Touch, or maybe a Nexus phone (although the lack of an SD card slot is disconcerting).

    Windows Phone 8.
    GDR3 / BitterSweet will bring interesting additions to the Lumias.

    Vanilla Android probably, but we'll see where Apple and WP8 are in a year or two.

    I'll be sitting, staring at my Z10, waiting for it to stop working.
    Oh wait... It will still be working.

    Good thing! I don't have to buy an iToy or a Mal-Droid! Yippee!

    If BBRY ceases to exist, I will keep my z10 for as long as possible. I'll use duct tape if I have to keep it going.

    When its eventual demise comes, I'd have to go with Android, probably a Google Nexus or Google Play Edition phone.

    Google would be the only one I could probably stomach if my Z10 dies and there isn't a BBRY to replace it.

    Since I am not dependent on BES services I will continue using my BlackBerry Z10 if only because I am under carrier contract. My email accounts are Microsoft Exchange Online for professional and IMAP IDLE for personal. The potential loss of BlackBerry World worries me because in the event a device wipe is necessary how will the applications be restored.

    I hope it doesn't come to that, I love BlackBerry but I would have to choose Apple.

    First I'll curl up in the fetal position in the corner of my room for several days while clutching my Z10 close to my chest. Then after checking that the world is indeed still turning I will continue to use my Z10 for the next two years of my phone plan.

    In the meantime, I'll see if I can get a cheap Z10 off the net as a spare (or try out the Q10) as everyone will be dumping their devices. ...would be nice to snag a Z30 too

    I know my phone will stay relevant for at least the next two years and I'll continue to sideload apps as needed and grab whatever leaked OSs get dumped by leaving BBRY employees. Maybe by then another platform (Android? Ubuntu?) will have developed into something rivaling BB10.

    But that's a worst-case scenario. Long live BlackBerry!
