    Back in 2009, almost half the smartphones in the United States were BlackBerrys. Now, BlackBerrys marketshare hovers below 3%.
    Were not saying wed want to go back to Black, but we cant deny that we miss the days when BBMing on our keyboards carried a certain cool status.
    Take a stroll down memory lane with all your old favorite things about BlackBerry
    When other phones failed, BlackBerry didnt. It was one of the few networks that continued to function in New York after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. That won the phone a generation of loyalists.
    Good ol Blackberry has also always been regarded as the most secure phone (could be why Obama didnt want to make the switch).
    The exclusiveness of BBM made the messaging feature even more attractive than AIM.
    BlackBerry phones were sized perfectly for one-handed use.
    Fingers of all shapes and sizes could handle those big, beautiful keyboards more easily and with fewer typos than touch-screen options.
    Productivity and email communication were always BlackBerrys forte. It was first with push email notifications on the homescreen.
    Who needs Siri? Or Instagram? Blackberry has been keeping it simple since Day One.
    Plus, since business culture was so ingrained in BlackBerry, owning one was an automatic status boost.
    And that battery lasted a looooong time.
    With the little red light that blinked whenever a message arrived, we could stop checking our phones constantly.
    Well, maybe not. We called them CrackBerries for a reason
