4G Blackberry?

I don't know why but I LOL'd when I read your question. RIMM is in a lot of trouble right now and I don't think sprint or any other carrier will benefit much from a 4g blackberry device of any kind at the moment.

lol, yes BB sales have declined lately. They have really good devices for business, and ppl who love quick push notifications. AT&T & T-Mobile have 4G blackberries, and they are pretty decent. Just curious about it, since Sprint never came out with a Wimax version of it, nor a Windows Phone either.

Well the att and tmobile versions are hspa+ and personally I don't consider that to be 4g even though you can get some pretty decent speeds out of it but not lte speeds. In either case though a lot of the advantages blackberry use to have for the business oriented customers are all but gone and its showing based on their performance.

Blackberry is done as far as phones go.

In other words, they are going to jack up the prices and offer their products to businesses on the premise of less apps and more security than the Apple and Android competition. It may be their only chance at remaining viable.

True' date=' but I wouldn't mind seeing a blackberry LTE on the Sprint network. Alot of folks use it for business and I believe a carrier should have at least two phones from every OS.

Agreed. Healthy competition means giving a decent choice of devices for consumers. Without that, people would stop liking their carrier.

I carry 2 phones. Work and Personal. Currently iPhone and Android. But i recently came across a Blackberry Style 9670 and i really like the form factor. I my self am tempted to ditch the iPhone for the Blackberry. No matter what i do i have to have an Android device. LOL

Remember how long it took for RIM to produce a 3G BlackBerry? And that was back when the company was healthy! Maybe BB10 will shake things up and we'll see an LTE BlackBerry. Considering how slow the BlackBerry browsers are compared to everything else an LTE BlackBerry would be a breath of fresh air!

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
