    I was wondering if Blackberry will continue to support BB10 moving forward? I know BB10 in around the world is still very strong and can't imagine Blackberry dissolving BB10 entirely. I wonder what would happen to all those users who purchased a BB10 phone in 2017? I think it would be smart of Blackberry to continue supporting the software considering there's still users like my self who own a Bold and Classic and use it for the efficiencies of Business.

    Interesting that there's an article from Blackberry management outlining their continued support to the BB10 network moving forward, but maybe that was just to calm down the current users?

    Actions versus words. Their most recent update (dripping slowly since November 2016) isn't all that great and doesn't do that much in the first place. The last distinguishable updates were years ago.

    It is pretty difficult to me to trust on Chen and Co.!! They may say that they do care about bb10...instead they are not doing anything. Chen is now concentrated on software and on monetize. If he fails, he would be kicked out....let's see coming quarters results.

    It all depends on what you mean by "support" and what minimum standard you expect.

    I wouldn't expect much.

    I didn't realize they were supporting it now.

    Part of me thinks BB upper management finds all the bickering on Crackberry entertaining...

    What do you think is support? Have you received good support from BlackBerry before today?

    You can enjoy your Bold and Classic for what they do currently. If no further support arrives, at least they work for you.

    OP your question was answered in your previous thread /blackberry-classic-f419/will-there-another-classic-model-coming-using-bb10-1102235/
    Suspect you may be wearing a reality proof hat. In which case these words are wasted.

    I recently bought a use passport. I've used a z10 then went back to android. Got tired of android. I love the simplicity and functionality of BB10OS. They should make BB10 OS open source.

    As much as I love OS10 - but there hasn't been any support since late 2014.

    I really can't agree with you. I'm comfortable with Android, iOS, and BB10, but if my phone broke tomorrow, I would buy another BB10 phone without hesitation.

    It's not the right OS for third-party apps, and the Web experience will continue to degrade slowly, but for the core functions of email, contacts, calendar, tasks and notes, it's still my favorite device.

    Don't buy one if you want to run modern Android apps, but if you primarily want the core native apps, you won't go wrong.

    The web experience degrading too rapidly. Websites are not loading up properly, no working at all, or more recently I get these certificate errors so it doesn't even work. The Hub on android works well based on my experience on my wife's DTEK50. So I'm truly running out of reasons why I would recommend anyone to spend a lot of money on it.

    I haven't run into a certificate issue on the native browser since upgrading to 10.3.3. But I agree that the browser experience will likely be the limiting factor on my BB10 phones. What URLs are giving you trouble?

    If those were the only 5 things I wanted to do on my phone, I'd go back to the 9900. That was brilliant at just those 5 things. Plus SMS.

    Random sites that I go to. Most commonly when I'm clicking an article that someone has posted on Facebook. I have a spare Z30 that my kids used, and that one consistently does it for Youtube.

    BlackBerry's support site turns you away and directs your questions and concerns to Crackberry. That says it all, we're on our own.

    I think "BB10" is a dead man walking. I think it's sad if you got a device that would be capable of so much..but ultimativly is forced into obsoletion by big company decisions.

    BB10 is a mature, finished product that is still the slickest OS out there so I, too, wonder what this " support" is that some users feel they need. I see some complaining that the browser is dated ( works well for me) and wonder why they just don't install another like Browsie from BW or Chrome ( non-Playstore version) from 1 Mobile Market. I see good reviews there from some BB10 users on the latter and BlackBerry Guardian says it is not known to have malware. Meanwhile I enjoy my unbreakable Z30 so who needs this "support " thingie?

    If 10.3.4 ever comes they'd minimally need to update the browser and any security patches. That's about all that can be expected at this point.
