    Looking back I should have known this was inevitable. I had nothing but blind hope carrying me on. When Kevin repurposed himself should have been my awakening. I was too addicted to the Blackberry 10 Swipe UI, keyboard and hub.
    I can't spin or deny the following though:

    "BlackBerry informed Verizon and AT&T that production of all BlackBerry OS 10 devices (Q10, Z10, Z30, Passport, and Classic) has been discontinued. Future carrier order fulfillment will not be guaranteed due to limited remaining stock.

    BlackBerry device support will continue for the foreseeable future. BlackBerry is committed to maintaining their support of our devices to include uninterrupted warranty and technical support.

    Once we have exhausted our current in-house stock, new device procurements will be limited, while supplies last, to warranty exchanges only."

    ( source: In Senate, Blackberry Era Officially Over | bomble.com )

    I will always remember blackberry fondly. I wish I could have a bold or classic or z30 with me forever supplemented by a LTE tablet but reliable Bolds have steadily become scarcer and costlier and it is just not a cost effective way to stay communicated.

    I guess I'll have to find a new device.

    I guess I'll be saddened every time I swipe up and am not taken to the home screen. Every time the keyboard doesn't predict my words as I wanted. Every time I am frustrated by the word completetion/suggestion on ios/android. Every time I have to send an email. Every time I have to switch between texts and emails and system/app notifications with out the hub.
    The sea of apps, modern specifications, carrier support, accessories manufacturer support and more will not cease my laments.
    I'll always wonder my what-if-blackberry-Fantasies.

    I know I'll always miss my old blackberrys.

    I invite everyone who wishes to commiserate with me and or provide insightful details for my transition to do so below in the comments below.

    --------- Forum admins please don't close this thread. The purpose of this isn't the death of bb10 or the memo to senate staffers but my farewell to blackberry, which I have not expressed in another thread therefor can't be condensed into another thread.---------

    Sounds like a lot of your concerns could be alleviated by a BlackBerry Android device when you're ready to make the switch, it has the hub and the BB10 virtual keyboard.

    Your devices won't stop working. Just keep using them.

    The writing was on the wall when Chen said he wanted Blackberry to be a software company. It is ironic that mismanagement of software products will be what will summarize his reign of error.
