    Are you actually a fan boy? Or do you use bb10 simply because it suites you best?

    Am tired of being called fanboy!

    I'm a BlackBerry user, used all platforms and always landed back to BlackBerry simply I find their logic in handling communications perfect to my taste!!!

    So sound off are you just a fan boy or??

    BlackBerry 10 suits me best. As far as smartphones go I had a Palm Treo 700p. Other than that I've always used a BlackBerry. The BlackBerry Hub keeps everything I need where I need it. The speakers are always loud and clear. The battery life is amazing. The BlackBerry 10 os is a big improvement over the Legacy Devices. One thing I've always liked about BlackBerry is the durability of their devices. I just dropped my BlackBerry Classic for the 1st time chest high onto a hard tile floor. Landed flat on the screen. No worries no cracked screen. All is well.

    Actually, I AM a fanboy. well actually I'm a fangurl.
    Didnt want a cellphone but had to get one, was vehemently told by the clerk I did NOT want a BlackBerry, but eventually i disobeyed her and got one anyway bc i hated my android. I fell in LUV, what can I say?

    Android was a baaad experience for me, and i didnt even know there was another way. So i had the cellphone experience that was worse than anything that i could imagine, and then by switcheroo i get to have a BETTER time than i could have imagined. Imagine having a phone that just works, and doesnt even spy on you! Wowza-yowza... Do i sound like a gud fangurl yet? And the butterycreme icing on the cake is, these bestest brand of phones are so danged CHEAP *cough!* IN-expensive -- that I can afford to have a few different models to switch around, the best of all worlds. Touchscreen, no, keyboard, no, BIGGER touchscreen, naw, I feel like a small, bite-size candybar-sized phone today that can stream music through the genuine, full-fledged BlackBerry-branded apps, all to be found in the Curve, but then if i use the Q5 its all bigger and faster oh dont make me choose which one is my favorite, at least i dont have a Classic or Passport yet...

    Sometimes i check the atnt or android forums to see what ridiculous kinds of problems they get to put up with for their $600 phones, and well i really feel for them because i was there too and just did not know they werent ALL like that, until i tried a BlackBerry.

    EDIT, to add, its a crying shame these phones have to sell for so cheap, but it is what it is, right now, which is why i dont just have 'a couple' of them. I suspect collecting them for posterity could pay off later, but keeping myself in check here, six or seven phones is really enough ... For now.

    I started out as a fanboy, but I realized that BlackBerry suits me the best.

    When I got my first BlackBerry Q10, I wanted it simply because I liked the serious businessman image of the BlackBerry phones. I also liked that BlackBerry was used by some people that matter.

    Then, I realized that the features on the Q10 are something anyone can take advantage of, even if he is not a "serious business man".

    I use BlackBerry because OS10 works best for be, I find it simple and intuitive to use, there was no learning curve as the gestures are very natural and logical. Would I leave them if they dropped OS10 , most definitely as that's the reason why I'm here, although I have no idea where I would go as I hate Android and iOS and not really convinced on windows phone.

    Why Blackberry? Because I can!

    I've had more than 40 (smart)phones since 1998 when I got my first. Tried my first BlackBerry about 2007 or so. I jumped ship with the iPhone 3GS in 2009 and since then it was an on-again off-again affair for me. BlackBerry makes sense in a lot of ways, but as of yet, I always kept thinking that the grass was greener on the other side.

    Now I'm switching from a Note 3 to a Z10. And no, I don't feel like this is a downgrade.

    Call me a fan too then a little over a year ago, I had only one.. Honestly I like a file manager and am not a fan of home buttons. The keyboard and hub too. It's a good product if a little dull on the app side of things but once I get a Passport up and running again, I might look into some of them Android ones tho I prefer native

    Definitely a fan boy... I think I hang on to BlackBerry because I'm hanging on to all the good memories I had with them. I love the brand and this is the ONLY company / stock I follow. But to be honest Crackberry is half the reason I'm addicted to BlackBerry. The community drew me.

    Definitely not a fanboy... I only gave BlackBerry a chance when BlackBerry 10 came along. It's too bad it didn't get the attention it deserved because the people that built this OS worked very hard.
