BlackBerry Classic Dead? Not Yet!

Uncategorized 4 Comments

Everyone stated that come 2022Jan04, all BlackBerry devices running their proprietory OS (ie:not using Android), would stop working. Including the CBC on January 4th.

Not true!!!
My BlackBerry Classic does calls, text messages and emails. The native apps all work as before.

Which is great!
I love a qwerty keyboard.
I love the trackpad.
And I like being able to press a button to answer, or end a call.



ps: Catullus would advise against this post, as his gods were always jealous. And I suspect they are around today.

May not be dead, but not long for this world. Put a DNR sticker on it, and move on 🙂

And real beer. Admittedly in fewer places.
So why oh why, is it so hard to keep a real phone ?
