HST's Dead Carcass: One of the guys at a satellite site recently upgraded his old Blackberry... to a new freaking Blackberry. I asked him: Why?!?!?!?! He told me he's just so used to the way it works, and I had to explain to him: For my department, these things are a nightmare, and they are not supported. So, best effort is the best we'll do. We got his email working, but his calendar won't sync.

On of the secretaries asked why Blackberry's are back, and I told her it's akin to using a freaking Tandy computer. She then asked: What's a Tandy?


Oh I see so your software is having issues with the public worlds most secure mobile business tool... wow you don't say.... Im not really seeing a blackberry issue here... more of an IT issue.

So every IT admin in the world has traded in security for fun and a tool for a toy.

I don't think many of you are real IT admins.

Stephen_Falken: I still have a Blackberry because I hate touch screen interfaces.


You are going to have a very sad future. Everything will be touch screen and voice activated going forward.

So I must be the third BB user. The company can save a lot of money and effort just from sending us word by Fark.

/Still best at handling email
//Yeah, some people use their phones to make a living

As a mobile device specialist, this is relevant to my...job?

We actually still have over 1,500 Blackberry devices. I work in Healthcare and we don't have the option to switch platforms quickly or easily, we're also legally required to implement a certain level of encryption. We're currently evaluating a 'post-Blackberry' solution, and I can't wait, the sooner we abandon this relic of a platform the better.

Had you told me that two-three years ago I'd be waiting with great anticipation to leave Blackberry, I wouldn't have believed you, but here we are.

david_gaithersburg: FYI - The US government has mandated a monopoly for RIM. If you are a government employee, or a GovCon, then you are sporting a BB. That's about what, several million people? Not much, but enough to keep that company in business.


This is definitely not the case any more. It varies by agency, but in many if you're eligible to have the Feds buy you a work phone you can get an iPhone just as easily as a BB. Some agencies (Immigration, for one) are going entirely to iPhone.

gweilo8888: Subby: Quit exaggerating.

There's no WAY that RIM has as many as three users left.


I have a Blackberry Torch and Playbook. Do I count as one or two of the three users? 

/Haters gonna hate.
