The only real issue that I've come across with RIM is it's repair service.
Blackberrys get sent away for repair which can take upto 28 days, Apple do an exchange on the spot if they cant fix it ....
I personally feel that Blackberry is a nice phone, mainly because everybody these days has one. I am able to hook up with girls easier, at this moment in my life, thats whats important to me..
It all depends what you need
Blackberry is Blackberry changing the OS of BB means that RIM is no more, and sony ericcson isn't dying they are just going to change the brand name to Sony. Waiting for the BB 10 OS so excited =)
Guys, I don't care about the other companies. However, I still wish to see RIM file backrupcyt in a few years. They're making shits.

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2011your last sentence you wrote proves why rim is making no money.Do you know that without what you call "3rd world countries" android and ios wouldn't get all that profits right? just look how many units they export to ME region alone then come back talk again about the 1980s discussion of "1st world and last world sh!t".
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2011your last sentence you wrote proves why rim is making no money.For all these intellectual light weights that comment on operating systems and profits, 99% are suffering an identity crisis. You have absolutely no idea as to margins, funding, and marketing, yet get all excited at the speed at which one can change a widget. Really. Grow up. For example 2 years ago Samsung made almost no margin on their telecom division and just 17% pre tax last reporting period. Compare that to Apple and RIM margins. Where RIM has lost is in marketing, not because their product is not relevant. Frankly in places like China and Indonesia, Android mobiles are available for USD $70 which do the job. So are high end Android’s completely over rated. Frankly they are. Google is the big winner playing the game across the full market spectrum. They don’t care what mobile as they get paid regardless with their licensing agreement, so they are more interested in volume, hence low end Android mobile phones.
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2011Trust me. Its not dual Sim that will save rim. Its software. They need to migrate with goole either i would suggest RIM to join forces with Google's Android or Windows (but do not ever put a non-expandable memory game or else they'll die!). i believe that RIM can still make it big and be back on track since their products before were all the best of the bests. just take in to consideration how reliable is the sliding mechanism of BB9800 and 9810? i haven't heard any issues of having problems with the ribbon of the slider or whatsoever? RIM just needs to be closer to its competitors, they say, keep your friends close and your enemies closer to you. if RIM does that, they'll blow iOS5 out of the water which i think is undefeated now, in the sense that apple has too many supporters and we can't deny that. i'll keep my fingers crossed with RIM's good comeback! BlackBerry 10! go get them!
this goes out to RIM, i suggest you guys should lessen your focus in manufacturing playbook since its out of the league with its competitors like the ipad and android tablets but, remember that you once ruled the market by making solid and very classy reliable phones that even middle class people would be willing to spend for. (first class people have always loved the previous RIM models)... start on making dual core phones with at least 1.2-1.5 GhZ of processor. higher resolution for cameras (at least 8mp with autofocus and powerful flash!) and screen with very crisp and bright, vivid for the naked eyes of everyone to let them appreciate your product more. i love your phones but sometimes i realize that your phones are too pricey for its specs. make sure that the next generations of BB's will be back on track, BB 10 series should beat iOS5 and Android Ice Cream Sandwich! you can do it RIM i know you can! i still love your phone. planning to get your 9790 once its released here in the Philippines but just as my secondary phone coz i'm planning to upgrade to iPhone 4S or HTC Sensation XE. win our trusts back please! GO RIM! =)

where as BB need BIS, you can't receive email with WIFI. that's where's they were f****d up.
we're not being cheap, we're just saying, RIM need to change they way to connect to internet.... with regular internet and wifi because BIS is suXXXXX.
