    I do wish Blackberry would do one thing: get a phone or 2 out to the MVNOs. They had some 9900's a few months ago out with StraightTalk - BB7? Really? Are we back in 2010?

    But tonight I was in Wal Mart and wandered down the phone pack aisles... in the GO Phones (ATT MVNO) was a Nokia 520 - Win8 with 4g, 8gb ram on board, and all the regular options - for $60. SIXTY. WTF? I realize that isn't the "high end" windows phone, but it has ok specs, and this is through a buy it and run it (granted, locked) but still, pay-go program.
    I'm half tempted to get one for my wife (since she has a crappy non-smart phone that she is paying smart-phone GO Phone coverage for) just to have one available to play with.

    There was another MVNO carrier (Family talk? OR was it ST? ) that had a Nokia 521 for $90... so it's out there...

    My point is, I agree, Blackberry needs to mend some fences and rebuild some bridges... get some phones out to the masses for cheap that are decent enough to not sour new/returning customers, and make folks want a BB10 product.
    I agree. If I had not wanted the Z30 I would have went with straight talk and saved myself a ton of $$. When my contract is up I'm going with straight talk bb10 or not!

    This should encourage you greatly. I am running my Z10 on Net10 (which is another division of StraightTalk and Tracfone) so they can and do work on them. I have 4g-LTE and 2.5gb /mo on ATT towers through them.
