    This just in--

    T-Mobile US is now sending free text messages to its BlackBerry subscribers with a link. This is most likely a component of the web page movement discussed elsewhere on these boards.

    See attached screen shot.

    T-Mobile should stop preening itself on social media all day long and try actually doing things to support BlackBerry, if it sincerely wants BlackBerry customers.

    Another ploy for T-Mobile that appears to be pro-BlackBerry but will offer BlackBerry users discounts to upgrade to any phone, hopefully 94% of the remaining BlackBerry users on T-Mobile don't leave BlackBerry and instead leave T-Mobile (maybe to Verizon to grab the Z30 that T-Mobile never carried).

    I think it's awesome that T-Mobile is doing this. I don't hold it against them or BlackBerry. I think this offer extends to BYOD too, so maybe get $100 off shopblackberry and then bring it to T-Mobile for $100 bill credit. Look at it like saving $200 off a brand new phone. Is that doable?

    It's like getting a brand new Q10 fully paid for $200 with no contract on TMOBILE

    I love T-Mobile. Glad they are not treating BlackBerry the way BlackBerry treated them.

    What I mean is Chen's hissy fit cut Z30 and future BlackBerry devices from T-Mobile. T-Mobile didn't cut me off from BlackBerry.

    Get a new CEO at BlackBerry who cares for each and every customer. BlackBerry threw me to the wolves.

    Don't sell me a phone then cut off my carrier. Even 5 T-Mobile sales beats zero.

    Chen needs to be brought in for a 72 hour hold. Pumped with thorazine and then give him his paycheck and replace him with someone who cares more for the company that he cares about his own ego.

    You think Spock would have pulled a Chen? Hell no because it's not logical. Or rational.

    So what should BlackBerry have done about T-Mobile trying to get their customers to switch devices?

    People got angry. T-Mobile apologized and gave special offers to its BlackBerry customers. That is where it should ha e stopped. Chen should have been gracious and accepted the apology and made a statement about building a better partnership. He should have taken the high road.

    And the other American carriers are steering customers away from BlackBerry. They didn't do it as out in the open as T-Mobile did. But AT&T stores treat you like you're insane if you are interested in a BlackBerry.

    Every carrier here is acting like BlackBerry is dead.

    What carrier was actually promoting BlackBerry? Telcel in Mexico.

    They had huge BlackBerry balloons and big cardboard stand up cutouts I. It's stores. Big banners in the windows. It was really nice.

    of course let the carriers eff with you for years while you bend to their every will and then take the "high road". that's a solid business plan you got there. you even said it yourself:

    so why continue to do the same thing expecting different results? that's insanity, dude.

    Well. BlackBerry should pull out of the US entirely then. Because t-mobile isn't alone.

    Have fun with that. I'm staying with T-Mobile where I'll be able to use my Z30 st LTE speeds for well under half the cost of any other carrier in the states.

    I received an email from Tmobile with similar message: an assurance that they will take care of BlackBerry users. I guess that's good. Whatever I still use and love my Z10. Until there is discount for the Z30, nothing has changed for me.

    I finally broke down and got a Z30 for 499. It's way too much but it is white and I just couldn't help it.

    But it will run fine on TMO. I think 350 is a reasonable price for Z30. Probably have to wait for the next batch of devices to come out before seeing a price drop.

    I'll probably try to hang on to the Z30 for a longer period to try to make up paying 499 for it. The only thing that would disrupt that plan is if they make a slider. Miss my 9810 like crazy.

    I would be surprised if anyone cared about me. They do care about customer retention. And they do see me as a number. Apparently Chen doesn't have a problem writing off however many T-Mobile users there are.

    I'll keep enjoying both BlackBerry and T-Mobile and if BlackBerry doesn't make it I'll find some android device I can live with and continue to enjoy high speed at a reasonable price.

    It wasn't a great apology. It didn't come off sincere by Legere and his VP.

    At my employer, we always check with our distribution partners to make sure they get an advanced notice of some promo or communication with some time for them to come back to us if they have any issues. That is a true partnership. TMO and BlackBerry was one sided. Legere is an *** on twitter. The board of directors need to order him to shut down his twitter or only let the PR rep post on his behalf.

    "Hissy fit"? I think you have Legere confused with Chen. Chen has been classy throughout.

    Neither do I see ANY evidence that BlackBerry "prevented" T-Mobile from selling the Z30. It would be a no-brainer for them to sell that, the device that is compatible with their network is already designed and available. Not like a CDMA carrier such as Verizon or Sprint where the device needs to be uniquely tailored to their network.


    BlackBerry threw me to the wolves.
    That's BS. You chose a low-end carrier that has shown little interest in Blackberry, pulled all BlackBerry merchandise out of retail stores last September and has been actively hostile to the company's sales efforts, and you think it is BlackBerry's fault? LOL

    Feel free to actually debate the points as I did, I don't see any of that in your response.

    Instead you claim I'm the angry one, and I'm getting personal when that is all you did there?

    Don't you get it? If BlackBerry really don't care about you, how then you can still using your BlackBerry with the t-mobile connection? at the same time, you admit it yourself that you can get your new Z30 not from T-Mobile.

    You need to separate about customer retention here between device and its connection. The issue between BlackBerry and T-Mobile is not about device it is about connection. You use t-mobile for their LTE (retention based on connection) and you can buy your Z30 which means retention by device has also maintained here. If anybody you want to blame, you can blame yourself, not Chen from BB nor Legere (because you so fond of him)
