Time To Promote BlackBerry

blackberry-logo 1

Lately we’ve seen a lot of misleading and hateful articles pertaining to BlackBerry devices. Yet outside the US, BlackBerry is universally loved.

I have members of my Twitter family from around the globe that adore their BlackBerry phones.

One good sign, VerizonWireless now features the BlackBerry Classic prominently on their main page, that is showing some progress.

T-Mobile is now selling the BlackBerry Classic after a one year hiatus.

A sure example of lack of love was shown by AT&T Wireless, they delayed the release of the Passport for weeks, then demanded a remake with rounded corners.

End result, we true BlackBerry users and lovers need to promote BlackBerry in any way we can, using all forms of social media.

Always include hashtags to show your support.




Let’s all show US Carriers that BlackBerry users matter. Promote! Promote! Promote!


BlackBerry fan. Loved my Bold 9650. Then went Z10, Q10, Z10, Z30.
Now rocking a Verizon BlackBerry Classic!
Also an unlocked AT&T Passport used as a tablet.

    Some of us use BlackBerry to maintain our privacy. It is hard for us to publicly promote something when we are very private people. locco_smiley_18

    Still I do my part in my private way.

    Understand, jrohland. I’m like my privacy, but don’t think using hashtags to promote BlackBerry is detrimental to our privacy. Thx.

      Sorry, I didn’t make that clear. I don’t use Twitter. I don’t use Facebook. I don’t use Instagram. I don’t use any of those personal information harvesting systems.

      • DickLewis13

        That would make it a little difficult to use hashtags.

    I just visited the Verizon Wireless link you posted, and I see no trace of the BlackBerry Classic on the main page, let alone prominently. Search for the word “classic”, nothing. What did you actually see and when was that?

  • DickLewis13

    Fudge, gone now, skeezo and I can’t edit. It was there for over 2 weeks, VZW customer, saw it often.

    Just searched Classic, shows right up. Camera version on backorder, ships 05/18/2015.

    Oh well, at least they did have something up so that’s cool. Thanks for the article!

  • DickLewis13

    Thanks, skeezo, I really appreciate the comments. We all know Verizon is a little weird. :)

    I think if we all do a little bit, Facebook, Twitter, anywhere on the web it will have some effect. I proudly carry my BlackBerry and make it visible whenever I get a chance. I did get some converts to BlackBerry doing just that, plus discussing the advantages of BB10 openly. Take care all :)

    Thanks for the reminder Dick and the how to. I always forget which tags to use there are so many

    • DickLewis13

      Thanks, BJ. Trying to use the tags as often as I can.
