    Carrier negligence leads to activation of multiple SIM cards with same mobile number.

    This risk is impossible with BlackBerry smartphones as BBID and PIN block are global unlike IMEI. Also , BB Protect can trace location of the other device easily.

    This is a feature all carriers have, especially in the USA and it's specifically dedicated to engineers troubleshooting network connectivity and quality complaints by hundreds of not thousands of users in a particular region.

    Nortel Networks backbone allowed for this and Nokia switches that controlled the base stations had an interface (Rogers' Ericsson switches had something called AOM yet removed that interface due to pirated lines with no listing in Billing systems). I recall back in 2001 with T-Mobile Tier 2 support seeing this first hand on Nokia switches... I believe it was a listing called Ghost.

    Those that have no idea what I'm talking about, look at The Bourne Identity movie look how he cloned the SIM card... this can be done officially by the provider.

    Always remember 1 SIM card can have multiple cell numbers. Bell likes to burn 1 number per SIM card, not sure their reasoning.

    But I can tell you first hand this is possible to be done by the carrier reps specifically to assist network engineers (same cats that climb and setup towers and repeaters.

    Cheers.

    How is this impossible on BlackBerry if this is a SIM thing (separate from the phone)? My provider was never provided information about my Z30 nor does it need to turn activate my SIM card.

    It isn't, but the OP feels better thinking that it is. There is a lot of that in the BB community (thinking things are more secure than they actually are).

    Well, BB10 is finished anyways. No one left in BlackBerry to develop it anymore. After the next update what you have is all that there will be for BlackBerry OS10.

    Lol. Yes, yes it is.

    He was just talking about how BlackBerry is superior but I just wanted to let him know that superiority that he was talking about (or whatever he was trying to talk about) is gone.

    It just sucks that bb10 is pretty much dead.

    DUDE! If BB was a superior product I can assure you that they wouldn't be at the bottom of the pile

    To be honest - the article that the OP cited speaks more to the quality of carriers in India rather than smartphones.

    You can have the best technology but to have the best product you will need a good management team. That is the reason for BlackBerry to have less that 1% Market Share.
