    BlackBerry needs to do whatever it takes to get updates on AT&T phones an phones in the stores.

    I don't know what the problem is but if BlackBerry is to survive, they must be a present in the US market. Even if they have to subsidize it.

    Like go to head office with guns drawn..... BB cannot force att to do anything. BB does not have the financial footing of say Apple and they are at the mercy of the carrier. I do agree though, BB really needs to do something to expedite update delivery.

    There are quite a few on these boards. I left AT&T to get my 30. I'm fine doing my own updates.

    Let me briefly share my experience at the ATT store here in the US today. First, there was not A SINGLE BlackBerry device on display and even the ATT sales reps had no clue about BlackBerry 10, the release of the Z3 or the upcoming Q20. These devices might as well be placed in the museums next to the dinasaur bones if you ask me as far as what ATT is pushing.

    Let me share my favorite piece. I was telling the ATT rep about some of the games I've downloaded and how clean and crisp the graphics are....hetold me he loved brick-breaker. BRICK-BREAKER? OMG...these people are clueless! Chen needs to walk into some of these stores himself and lay the law down.

    By the way, for the guy above asking about how many ATT users are on BlackBerry, I'm not sure...however there are approximately 72 million BlackBerry users globally according to Wikipedia.

    I'm seriously considering leaving att and going to Verizon. Att has turned into a not so pleasant experience these days.

    Yeah I also did want the Z30 but I'm not switching carriers to do it. I'll just wait for the Galaxy S5 to come out as it's a much better phone anyway.

    Bought a new, unlocked Z30 on eBay and it is doing great on AT&T. 10.2.1 update was successful via Link. Agree that it is a waist of time and effort to be critical of the service providers. If they have stopped stocking BlackBerry it is due to lack of demand, period.

    My family is all BlackBerry and AT&T. We have stayed for years for best reception in our area. Also good on the phone customer service. Gave up on the stores years ago.

    Been loading leaks since the first BB phone 6 years ago. Now using an unlocked Z30 on the latest OS and happy as a clam. AT&T can do what they wish so long as self install OS is around and third party sellers have the phones. We as a family have no need for more than data and talk service from the corporate fools.

    I am also a long time BlackBerry user and love their products but it's getting harder and the to buy the devices you want with your carrier. I was going to buy the Z30 but the device is 5 months old and isn't worth buying at this point. I will be keeping my Z10 as a backup device but my S5 will be my daily driver going forward.

    Did the same thing a few months back. In total frustration with my Z10's inability to block selected phone numbers I opted in favor of the newly introduced Moto X. Solved the blocking problem but found found the platform not as user friendly for my needs and so I switched back to this Z30. Found out how to at least block calls from anyone not in my directory and have the best phone I have ever owned now.

    The corporate att stores are one of the things I try to avoid. I'm happy with the coverage so I may wait it out and see how it all goes.

    Concur. AT&T IS the evil empire. Got sick of waiting for them to release 10.2 and went w/ Sachesi instead. BEST decision.

    One question: What legal repercussions would BlackBerry face if they provided updates directly to the user (aka us)?

    I left BlackBerry today because of ATT. I want to come back to my Q10, but I went to Iphone.....

    I love my Q10 and my BlackBerry. I've used a 9700, the 9900, and the Q10. Now my primary phone is Iphone. Why? Because ATT could not figure out why many IOS messages were not getting to my Q10. I was assured that everything was provisioned correctly multiple times, I reloaded my software to its original settings, and I even received a new phone. When I started the new phone up guess what, still not getting many of the messages. When I went to Iphone, everything worked great, Internet, messages, etc...The only problem is that it's an IPHONE! If somebody could help me I would love to come back to the community. I'm typing this from my Q10! Step up ATT and give me the assurance you are with blackberry for the long run. I would be inspired if somebody from ATT saw this and reached out to make rthis right!!!

    Call Apple support, get them to remove your phone number from their servers. Takes 10 mins. Reboot device and all works well.

    Had same issues when I went from iPhone to Q10 for work.
