I saw one today and I really pitied the owner.
I used bold 2 for like 3 weeks I sold it immediately I noticed that my nokia N8 performed far better. I have been using Android since 2011 briefly use iPhone because the phone suffered me with battery

So I was thinking of the good old days of blackberry, from bold 1 to 6, curve 2-6, blackberry 10 Era.

Decided to go hunt for one today. I could not find my choice (bold 5... or z10). Luckily I saw a Blackberry z30.
Got it quite cheap grin

Using it to post this now.
I must say.... Blackberry in it's extinct nature is still better than some 2021 tecno and infinix. cheesy

Lol, they've packed up o. I still remember when I bought my first z10 74k. Blackberry disappointed us sha.
I still love them nonetheless.

Blackberry have a physical keyboard obsession, and add nothing unusual to the few non-keyboards they make, unfortunately. I do love my Motion however, even though its somewhat outdated now. Even after 5 years, the battery just goes on and on and on and from zero power I get like 20% charge in less than a minute, but I'm suffering a ram deficiency now and need an upgrade but don't know what to get.

Until last month I was still using my Q10 as my small phone because of the voice clarity, m.facebook.com, Nairaland, emails etc that day I lost it I was depressed because my Android fell on my IPhone and both screens broke.
Las las I have changed both screens but haven’t still been able to retrieve my MTN line that got lost with the Q10

My Blackberry Priv (3 gb ram, 32gb rom, android 6.1, 18mp, 1.8ghz) runs on full android, I always love blackberry keys because of their tacticality, I'm planning to get a Key 2 soon which comes with 6gb ram and 2ghz processor. That phone is lit

Blackberry hasn't gotten extinct, they are just very rare because of their limited production

And you will be lucky to lay your hands on one, just like me a Unicorn grin
Pls, how much did you buy this one?
And how is the battery like?

Blackberry still has Android versions out there
Just that you hardly see them and because it wasn't built or launched for Nigerians

That is the downside but I can still install a few but not all from amazon appstore. BBWorld doesn't even work again but I still use whatsapp, MXPlayer, classic word (scrabble game). There was also an app that mirrors telegram but it stopped working a few weeks ago.

Re: Who Still Owns A Blackberry In 2021? by Nobody: 11:43pm On Jul 07, 2021
It's obsolete. I know just one guy that uses a Z30 as back-up phone. They got comfortable and failed to innovate their OS and lost market share rapidly to Samsung and Apple. When they discontinued the BBM messenger that was the final deathblow that made it all but useless. And to think many girls used to off pant for this phone back then. smh

Blackberry was a popular phone in Nigeria especially among the ladies in campus. Many were busy pinging while lectures were going on. Others were ready to do anything to have one because it was a status symbol in campus. Never kill yourself for anything today, it may be out of fashion tomorrow. I am sure the company is still producing phones but the frenzy in the campus has almost disappeared.

Nope. They don't produce phones anymore. It's a cybersecurity company now. Google it.

Hahaha. You must have been the odd man out then. BB was so rampant at some point people stopped asking for phone numbers, it was always "what's your BBM pin?" and if you didn't have one, they will look at you like you just fell from Mars. I remember I used to use a Nokia 8800 back then, which was a very luxurious phone at the time with its sleek titanium body, but I still had to dump it for a BB because of peer pressure lol. Make I no be like scrub to all those campus girls.

Cheers to one of my most greatest series of phone ever used, started from bb storm ...omo that phone heavy pass Zuma, then I switched to bb curve 2, thrift money I saved, was what I used in getting it.

Then came bold 5, the best gift an ex decided to give me, based on relationship parole lol! Till I finally upgraded to bbQ10 white colour in particular, and 3days later it was stolen. But surprisingly,good friends gathered cash together to buy me the exact phone again...

My chronicles with the BB series is quite a story... but I'll summarise it as written in my first sentence one of my greatest series of phone ever used.
