    Z10 users (and all BB10 users) if BlackBerry were to somehow IMMEDIATELY run out of business or stop making phones for regular consumers, what phone would you start using? My friend asked me this yesterday and I didn't have an answer... maybe a Samsung Galaxy 4 for me?

    What do you guys say?

    Let's say you had to pick one that is currently out, which would it be?

    First I would panic, then I'd get a few Z30s to stock.

    A Jolla phone just to be different.
    Or a Lumia phone.

    Only because android security is so bad, I'll have to go with Apple.

    Android and Windows Phone is a "no go" for me, so it'd have to be iPhone 5s (or the next iPhone), or the Jolla phone. Most likely though is that I'd keep using my Z10 until it dies and then go back to my old thrustworthy Nokia N9 with Meego Harmattan (still better swipe experience than BlackBerry 10).

    If they actually went out if business that would be another story.. I'd continue to use my Z10 until it just wouldn't cut it anymore (likely a few years) and then i'd have to spend some time evaluating what devices were out at that point. -that however isn't going to happen.

    If however, they were to sell only enterprise phones, I'd find a way to buy one of those.

    My choices would be Wp and Android. Been blackberry, iphone and android users for few years now and will never coming back to ios because I hate Apple's restriction.

    Probably Lumia, Galaxy series (note and S), or Xiaomi phone!!

    I'd go Android but only because I've never tried one before, Nexus 5 or HTC One maybe.

    Or maybe I'd find a Q10 and Z30. Then Frankenstein the two phones to make a Zedzilla!

    Crap, I meant to put HTC One and Jolla in the Poll but forgot. Don't know how to edit a poll and I don't know if that's possible.

    Motorola bag phone. At the end of the day it makes phone calls. No overpriced plans etc.. No wonder cell companies killed it off..

    Windows Phone is just as restricted. What are you talking about?

    Well I guess then if I run out of my BB stock, I wouldn't have a phone. LOL

    They're NOT going out of business and they're NOT going to stop making smartphones.

    Keep using my Z10 till it dies on me without a way to revive it, probably acquire a Z30 to use thereafter and depending on the price of the Enterprise focused device and it's capabilities of running proper Android apps stay with BlackBerry, go with Jolla (Samsung and such are too mainstream) or Windows Phone (looks interesting), but no Apple (can't stand them for a couple of reasons)

    I'd get whatever phone BBRY is making or keep using my Z30. The poll is flawed without the option to just get the non consumer BB. Doesn't mean they would refuse to sell to consumers just that their target market focus would be enterprise.

    In fact I would like someone to describe what a non consumer phone is and tell me why I couldn't still use it.
