    I think they just got tired of people asking for BB10 on the Playbook so they finally just did an EOL was the remaining inventory was sold.

    What would BlackBerry get out of announcing the EOL of BB10? They have already announced they are getting out of the hardware business.
    They should stop a bleeding in his economy, and They won't be obligated to support an OS whose team was kicked out long time ago

    From what I can see they are not supporting it now, so what difference would an announcement make. They don't appear to have done anything with the OS in over 18 months.

    i don't think consumers see the big picture here. If my corporation it's near bankrupt i will do whatever the consumers want to try to save it (not the case with Blackberry).My Z10 had good signal at 30k feet altitude from NY to LA and i was able to text and call .The way i see it US and Canadian gov will pay Blackberry whatever it takes just to secure their communication and not consumers like they did with Detroit auto makers.

    ...My point still is there, what do you think about BB10 not getting more updates after 10.3.4 and Nougat release?
    First, given that 10.4 if, it is every released, will come sometime in 2017, about two years after any significant development on BB10, and considering such a small number of people are still using it, and that BlackBerry now has three decent Android phones in its product lineup, I can't imagine why this would be a issue worth discussing or what it has to do with Nougat.

    Yeah I'm sorry but at 30K fee that's just not possible. It's a good dream though.

    Lol 30K feet. Right. A cell tower won't emit a signal that high up, so no.

    I believe you, even though it's not possible at 30K feet.

    Depending on the range and strenght of the antenna, climatic conditions, and if the Z10 is on a rugged case (like mine does) it can be possible, Hard as hell but possible

    That's interesting since a cell tower won't emit a signal above 10,000 feet. So how is this possible?

    if i would have an explanation i wouldn't make such a big deal out of it ,the fact no cell phone has reception in the airplane but my old Z10 had for few minutes 2 hours before arriving on LAX makes me think that there is more going on with bb10 devices and they will be no longer available for consumer use but they will continue to develop for gov communication.

    What are they suppose to do as it works great! Windows98 was happily used for years as it worked fine and BB10 will be the same. Those who like it, like it a lot.

    BlackBerry 10 OS is a very good OS without doubt, but I hardly doubt the government Will take them, specially since them gone Android

    Radio signals don't stop at a certain distance, they just get weaker. I would expect that the antennas are designed to emit the strongest signal in a horizontal direction, but there's nothing unusual about getting a signal from a cell tower that's more than 10,000 feet (about 1.9 miles away).

    Was it a few minutes or from New York to LA like you originally stated?

    The maximum distance at which a phone can still make calls and send texts varies depending on the type of tower and transmitter, but an airplane would have to be no more than 10,000 feet in the air for any cell phones on board to still have a signal, according to Bill Rojas, director of telecom research at IDC Asia Pacific.
