    BlackBerry doesnt have the authority with the carriers that Apple does, not even close unfortunately.

    Also many Android devices require carrier approval as well

    Also windows phone requires carrier approval.
    Apple got away with it as they controlled the market. But they are not going to be all powerful for much longer and they will regret forcing carriers to dance to their tune much like BlackBerry is now.
