    Is anybody anywhere persevering with this machine?
    I keep trying. Love the form, hate the function.
    Please could somebody explain (as though to a 7-yesr-old, sorry)
    1. Why is the Punkt internal storage so massive at 12GB? There doesn't seem to be a single thing one can do with it.
    2. It even has a pre-set folder called Music, but even the Punkt help line confirms that one cannot bluetooth .mp3 files to one's car from the phone.
    3. How can I import a .vcf Contacts list? I have managed to transfer "my.vcf" to the Punkt filesystem and have stored it under
    MP02 > Internal > Android > data > com.android.contacts > files
    However, on the machine, "Restore contacts" cannot locate it.
    On the other hand, if I BackUp pre-existing contacts, a file called BackUp..vcf is indeed created, and can be located using "Restore". Where does it reside? Not on the Internal Storage System.
    I am SO frustrated by this. Throw it back in its box? (Yet again.)
    Thnaks for any help / insight / guidance.

    If it isn't working for you.... why keep torturing yourself?

    I haven't seen many users here on CrackBerry. Many were interested in it for it's connection to BlackBerry, but in the end it's an overly basic phone that is not better than a $50 dumb phone.

    Is the license agreement still active with this company?
    If so, could Punkt make the next BlackBerry phone now?
    Petition?

    What other active licensees?

    #1: No, Punkt only uses the BlackBerry Software and will not produce BlackBerry Smartphones (see Punkt philosophy)

    #2 There are no active licensees besides BlackBerry Mobile.

    BlackBerry's Android Development.... cost money to develop and maintain. Without sales from it's primary licensees, the operational revenue wasn't there to feed the other projects.

    What remaining licencees.... ?

    BBMP is gone... no trace of it as a company.
    Optiemus has said they are done.
    Bullet Group & Yangzhou (NTD) signed deals two years ago... but have not heard a peep out of either.
    Punkt got out a phone, that barely has much of an OS on it.... and probable hasn't sold more than 25K units.
    We know the story with BBMo now.

    Alex Thurber was in charge of all these deals... he's gone, and there is no talk of moving forward or making new deals.

    I don't think they will pull the plug, I think the already did.... a year ago.

    Unless you send in your resume, apply for the job and relocate to Waterloo at your expense.
