Also, Blackberrys are supposed to be business phones. Is Nextel still around? What if the "chirp to talk" function went down? If a business chooses Blackberry for BBM and that service goes down they should be compensated.
you gotta be kidding me, in real world working environments, everything is via "email" a business will NOT use RIM/Blackberry for its BBM. its the instant push email capability...BBM was just an incentive provided..besides, email/bbm service went down - yes, but the moment user's are at their work station, boom, emails are happening, and they're browsing the internet..and if a business deal was pending, a simple phone call to the prospective partner would've solved the issue. i'm sure RIM has made some compensations to all carriers they have contracts with..besides, u dont ever see APPLE coming out and say "we're sry", and let us make up to you, by dishin out $100 worth of apps. remember the "death grip" based on the phone design? well, apple insisted that wasn't an hardware/design issue, rather a "signal/software issue" lol?
