    Hey! I was wondering if BlackBerry has young fans, I see everyone talking about how much they love their iphones and Androids, but I haven't seen a lot of BlackBerry love lately.

    I don't think the: "It's because BlackBerry is a tool and not for kids" is a good answer

    What are your thoughts about this?

    My 3 daughters wouldn't give BlackBerry a shot. I've tried several times. Hell it took me 10 years to change my wife over about 4 months ago. My girls buy there own phones so I guess I can't say much.

    I was 16 when I got my first BlackBerry, but they were cool back then, now they're Meh, but I still prefer them to the competition.

    I'm 21, and I am the only one in my social circle with a BlackBerry.

    The Q10 is my first BlackBerry and I have owned Symbian phones before (another unique OS).

    So far I love it!

    I haven't seen this in about a year now, but TVO (public broadcasting in Ontario, Canada) used to advertise a bunch of children's apps that were, AFAIK, exclusive to Blackberry?
    TVO Launches Five New Educational Apps for Kids | About TVO
    TVO Expands Educational Childrens Apps to BlackBerry 10

    I don't know if it helped, but it made me think there must be something in Blackberry for the youngsters.

    I'm 24 does that count? Everyone else in my group is using a Samsung or Apple device. Rarely see a bb10 device here in the Philippines.

    Sure you will find some exceptions but, as a whole, I would say no. They only have 1% of the market so how could they be?

    Everything I say is my OPINION and is based on my experiences and what I have learned. It is not meant to attack but to drive meaningful conversation. Let's all be civil!

    My daughter (16) chose BlackBerry after testing both Android and IOS. She is the lone ranger but her friends like her phone and several use BBM. She has more BBM friends than Mom and Dad put together. Snap is there favorite but it is more like a game for them than messaging.

    I'm 26 (gettin' old!) and am the only one I know that uses a BlackBerry, other than a relative that works for the government and he has a Z10. But he's much older. I have a Z10 and a Z30. I live in Indiana (USA).

    I'm 17 and im using z10. I love it. Been bragging it to my friends, especially the 10.3 leak, but when it lags my excuse is that im using a leaked/dev os hahaha. I hate that ios8 copied the instant reply in BlackBerry10.

    My nephew wanted a BlackBerry badly but my sister got him an iPhone because it's better. Though every time I got over they get pissed when I show them what my BlackBerry can do.

    He's still wants a BlackBerry though

    Im 22 and my first BlackBerry was a Z10, then I got the Q10 and having just graduated from University and starting work soon, I hope to be getting the Passport. I don't really know anyone else that uses a BlackBerry other than one friend of mine that introduced me to the Z10. I actually get really excited when I see a stranger using a BB10 device.

    My 14 and 13 year old daughters weren't thrilled about me taking their Android and giving them my z10 at first. The day I switched em over, my oldest daughter was a bit pouty until she started getting her stuff switched over. Got her Snap2chat on day one and she's happy. She likes it now. I'll keep riding the BlackBerry wage as long as they keep making phones as good or better than my z30.

    I'm 20 and have used a BlackBerry since the 8330. Started with that and moved to the 9630, 9650, 9930, and finally my Q10. I use BlackBerry for two main reasons, the keyboard and superior communication abilities. I can respond to emails with ease on my Q10, making it a very powerful tool to me, versus just a smartphone.

    16 and I've been using BlackBerry for a long time, started back in middle school and now I'm exactly a year from college and still loving BlackBerry. Nothings met my needs like my BlackBerry, I've tried every other OS but they bore me and I come back.

    I'm 32 and have a good few years in as a raving BlackBerry nut. Also, my daughter who is turning 8 this month has a few games on my Q10 and knows how to flick in and out of her apps, and tries to hold the phone correctly to text my ex (aka her mom) with the classic "BlackBerry prayer" when she stays with me. I'm trying to pass it on

    I'm still not sure what age group we talking about. I know only one person age 10-25 that has a blackberry not from work, he's 21 and a q10 user. Other people who have BlackBerry's all from work, none use bbm.
