Interesting acquisition announced today....Blackberry to acquire Good Technologies. For those of you who don't know or are familiar with Good, it's basically a BYOD platform for enterprises. (Email, intranet, etc.) Not necessarily directly Sprint related, but many people use both.
(To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks.
So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area.
The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBerry release coming. This could be referring to the Classic or upcoming Leap, but it's anyone's guess at this point. Sprint has been pretty cautious in recent years about releasing BlackBerry phones. I'm not sure if that is going to continue now and into the future.
T-Mobile is in talks with BlackBerry about selling their phones again. Even without this, there is the ability to bring an unlocked phone to TMO because they are a GSM carrier.
So, I bought a used Z10 off of eBay last night. I'm going to purchase a prepaid plan and try the service for a month. But, I'm expecting TMO's service to be satisfactory as well.. I have a tablet that can connect to TMO's network and the service is pretty good overall.
What should I do? In your opinion, is there advantage to one carrier or the other?
I'm going to also post this on CrackBerry. Perhaps this post would be somewhat more relevant there.
Just wanted to let y'all know that the BlackBerry Classic is launching tomorrow, with events in New York, Singapore, and Frankfurt. The NY event starts at 10:00am EST. It will be streamed live at the official link below.
Yep, so I am a newbie, and have a question. My life and business depends on the Airave in many ways. I live within an 8 block radius of the NOCC for Sprint (National Operations Control Center) and have had horrible prob's in the past. With the Airave and my Blackberry Tour 3G, all has gone well over the last 3 years. Been with Sprint since '98, and have heard the downfalls of buying out contract as well as other carriers and their nightmares. So I would like to stay put. My question:
If you have experienced or know someone who has recent experience like mine above, what would be the best phone and phone setup to use without staying with BlackBerry?
Thanks, but after a lot of research, I am pretty much done with BB, I don't think there is a way in the world they are going to be able to rebound but that's just my opinion.
The phone was fine, I just had to power off the old one and then the new one started working as soon as I rebooted it. It's because Sprint doesn't just use the SIM for authentication on the network. Essentially, the old phone was still hanging onto the authorization on the CDMA side, and it had to release it for the new one to get it.
They shouldn't hassle you about a new SIM in a case like this. They just might not have the correct one for your phone in stock. So they may have to either order it, or they can maybe pull one from a used/returned phone in the back and put it on your account.
Also, double check that the IMEI or ESN that Sprint has on file for your line actually matches your phone.

100% sure I didn't mess anything else. Just the priorities.
You were right, it does lock me out if I don't do it fast enough, is very tricky to get it. I followed your procedure in safe mode and got the carrier reset message. After pressing yes, the phone rebooted but the behavior still persists. Another interesting bit is that as soon as I pop my Sprint SIM, wifi on the phone disconnects. If I remove the SIM, wifi functions normally (this behavior does not happens with any other SIM). The problem with this is that when I attempt to activate via SprintDM, it fails due to no wifi connection.
Did that phone ever worked again normally?
No other phones or lines. Just this one.
I guess I will have to do that. Hopefully, a new SIM should fix this strange issue.
Do they give the SIMs hassle free or are they difficult?
By the way, thanks for the advice.
