    Well, the day thay I never thought would arrive finally came. After 10 years with a BB by my side I am know with another operating system. I won't say which so as not to start a flame war, but BB did too little too late.

    Its a sad day when BB itself has forced us to have too choose another platform because of the slow updates, glitches and lack of support to their core group of users.

    Good bye BB..... it,s not me, its you.
    Actually, it's not BB, it's you because you are just trolling. You are no fan of BB because fans don't say too little too late, especially when something as promising as BB10 comes along. I agree BB10 is not perfect but it's a very good start. You are just a troll even if you don't know about it yet. Bye bye and hope you don't show up here again.

    Hey Sad_Old_Man
    Your signature says to Come and Take it (Ancient Greek) ... what do you want us to take from you???
    It actually means "come and take it". Therefore whatever you require is available if you have the ability to take it.

    My point is that you can't infer from the number of posts on a forum how "invested" you are on a product.

    As mentioned, no use in saying what OS I went to, as it is not the OS itself that pulled me away from BB. Rather it was BB that pushed me away....

    Psssst........ Just an observation but a little more sincerity wouldn't go amiss!
    A little more maturity would be nice. If he wants to leave the leave. No need to come the site that he is too busy raising his kids to come on just to say he is leaving. What outcome do people who start these threads expect?

    When you get on the outside, please ask a builder to widen the exit as in the next 12 months there will be what I would describe as a "stampede" towards it.

    Forget that ask the builder to make two large exits because if bb10 comes to the pb they will need an exit for users after that and the handset users will have their own.
    Keep stuffing yourself with pasties , you will never get out of any exit!

    A helping hand? When people ask for help they get it. How many times have you seen a thread like this end in "thanks for the help I will now stay with blackberry"? He wasn't looking for a helping hand as his mind was made up. Yes he's entitled to his opinion but so is everyone else.

    I really don't understand why someone has to announce that they have changed their cell phone, smartphone, tablet etc... If I ever switched, I wouldn't expect anyone here to care. I would just switch and go on with my life and keep in touch with the friends I made and move on.

    Because there are like us... who will respond - in one way or another...


    And as long as there "us", there will be "them"... remove one in equation, and this thing will die...

    No, I'm afraid it very much is BB. While BB 10 may well be "promising," that's hardly enough from a company that has consistently disappointed its user base over the past three years. It's at best destined to become a lightly supported niche platform. If that floats your own personal boat, fine, but for many of us former ultra-longtime BB users, enough is enough.

    Best response in the entire post to sum up what many hardcore blackberry users feel today.

    The problem is People want everything to be perfect... there's nothing perfect out there.. They come here and let us know that they are leaving. The platform is too new, you can't just have the perfect things over night... BB10 is growing and promising..Yet, people come here and pretend that it has been around for centuries....

    Apparently he wants us to take the ground of the Thermopolae Pass... Supposedly Leonaidas said that to the Persians; though with the wonders of Greek grammar (at least from what I can remember from college almost 20 years ago) there's no way to really pass the meaning on in English....

    Reading this thread brings back memories. When I first joined this forum even negative thoughts regarding the pb would get one tarred and feathered and escorted to the edge of town by vigilante fanboy.
    This is a discussion forum and not lala land, voicing ones opinion (be it positive or negative ) is what it's supposed to be all about.

    See ....the voice of reason... that demonstrates why someone would start a thread to let us all know why he is fed up and leaving BB....because what do you want him to do....Go quietly into the night?...

    LaLa land is what this forum will become if everyone who disagrees is branded a "troll" ....in the end you will end up with a forum of 'fanboys'...or as i have heard people on this site call "Apple" users...SHEEP

    we all know what happens to sheep...they get sheared.....

    I've just built a private entrance to my cellar for you my friend. That post was perfect! When I made early posts on here it was along those lines and actually what these people don't say is what they mean. I once started a thread titled "the time has come the walrus said" and was berated on it just like the op. I can't speak for the OP but in my case read:

    "I don't understand this playbook and I'm that pissed off that I'm leaving bb unless someone of more bb experience than I have can tell me that I am doing something wrong and therefore not to leave"

    As they post it on a playbook forum, if they are genuine then they are asking for help in a roundabout way. Never the less out come the fanboys and because you have had the nerve to say something that they don't like they brand you a troll.

    Been there, worn the 'T' shirt, read the book, wrote the book, seen the film and acted in the film!

    Well done for stating it as well.

    ps Is it any worse than having yet another boring thread about the might be, could be, actually seen, announced or bb10 coming soon to the pb. But it's what the fanboys love to read. They probably work in a car wash but think they are System Analysts.

    Fanboys apparently leave their logical faculties on the floor once they log in. Out comes the nasty ganging-up playground nonsense because hey, everyone's anonymous on the Internet

    So old man, can I come and take a few bottles of your Henessy Priv?
