    That's coming with the 10.1 update.
    Are you serious? That's awesome man! I wrote Blackberry about that like 6 months ago when I was ordering some educational apps for my Playbook. Thinking of getting into the part-time instructor gig for our young Soldiers on base. Do you have a link for that by chance?

    Here's the link..... BlackBerry 10.1 is bringing plenty of changes - Here's some of what we're seeing | CrackBerry.com

    Here's a summary list of new things....

    HDR option for taking photos
    PIN to PIN messaging now available and present in the BlackBerry Hub
    APN editing is now enabled (Though this may remain carrier based)
    'Highlights" for text such as word correction on the keyboard are now green, instead of blue
    'Text Picker' has been improved, now allows for easily moving left and right between letters easier
    Sharing menu is now black, just like on the BlackBerry Q10
    New help demos and walkthroughs after initial boot
    Select All for broadcast messages is now available
    Ability to turn off alerts for specific applications
    Easier to check for updates in BlackBerry World
    Phone can be fully unlocked at lock screen now by the power button
    BlackBerry World now has options for coupon redemption
    Pasting of phone numbers directly into dialpad
    Installed apps can be opened from with BlackBerry World (No longer shows 'installed' now shows 'open')

    I could be reading too much into it but it seems like you can gift coupons for redemtion.

    You can always just ignore my posts, I'm going to post and present a different opinion whether you like it or not. Someone in this thread has to inject a dose of reality from time to time. Since I have a significant stake in this stock, and this is a forum discussing it, I think that I'll stay. Now you can go back to dreaming about your Ferraris or whatever else adolescent-minded fanboys do in their free time.
    With respect, why should the majority in this thread have to cater to what you want? Are you special?

    We all have significant investments in BB/BBRY. But the majority of us behave like mature adults and don't sook over paper losses?

    So, please leave and stop disrupting this thread.

    And apologize for the name calling. It is totally uncalled for.

    Thanks, just found it as a click thru on the Boston Globe site. I think it directed me to an MLB site where it was downloadable so I did it. Still sad around here, but some great stories of people I know and who were running or watching or volunteering that day and stepped up to the plate. Reassuring that some people still got it. I am sure you see that everyday, but in civilian life its not always the case.

    Oooooh, I was hoping for an actual pre-paid card you pick up while shopping like several other establishments have. You know, like buying somebody a Home Depot gift card or some other app carrying corporation. Just something I would like to see in the future, but I know there are many who don't like this probably.

    I was really glad you and your friends were not hurt in the incident. My heart goes out to everyone there that pulled together as a team to assist the first responders. People all over the world are talking about how the local reaction to the incident was a huge lift in humanity and those that were considering the plight of society as a down-hill plunge have new hope. I listened to some amazing stories on my morning drive to work this morning.

    I don't think there's enough market share for that at the moment. But if you were able to buy a dollar amount, and get the code emailed to you, you could forward the virtual card to the recipient. If this is what they are planning, cool.

    Yep. I think the expectations are becoming too high for companies like Apple and Google. Great numbers and stock dips.

    Almost the opposite of BBRY calls. I'm a fan of Google but I can't afford to buy any considerable amount of their stock.

    Oh me neither... not even close, but it's interesting to see what they're up to. As for being a fan, not so much here but I do like the fact that they provide a lot of jobs locally at their Canadian HQ.

    I really dont like the sounds of this:

    "My rep finally told me it is a cpu problem (saw this from a repair center also) and he told me there is going to be a massive recall. Just a thought, Is this why the delay on the software upgrade? Are they trying to do a work around with software so they do not have to do a recall? "

    It's all hearsay.... especially the post you quoted. That is purely speculation. Also, I can't really understand where people keep saying "delay" in the OS update. They've sent out one big one, and a second super small one, and one more on the way in less than 3 months. I find it hard to call that any sort of delay.

    Part of having a secret clearance in the USA is not telling anyone. You could loose it for things like putting it in your resume.

    If this is actually true the stock will get crushed, this is enough for me as long to consider selling and wait for the dust to settle, as I know that the bears would have a field day with this.
