This is the end of BlackBerry. You won’t even call the emergency number

Even before the popularization of Android and iOS smartphones, BlackBerry was an object of desire not only for business people, but also for people who wanted to stand out in the crowd of phones with a numeric keypad. It was the Canadian company that introduced the QWERTY keyboard, joystick and distinctive design.

The world, however, is moving forward, and nowadays hardly anyone can imagine the daily use of the device without a large touch screen. The producer of BlackBerry realized that there is no greater chance of competing with world leaders such as Samsung or Apple. In 2016, Canadians said there was no point in further manufacturing the devices.

You won’t make a call with BlackBerry

The definitive end of BlackBerry occurred on January 4, 2022. Thus, not only software support ended, but also its operation in general. You can’t make calls, text messages, or even call an emergency number. All GSM as well as the Internet connection was no longer available.

This applies to all system-based devices BlackBerry OS 7.1, BlackBerry 10 OS and software for the tablet BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1. Or & hairsp; – & hairsp; of course & hairsp; – & hairsp; older versions.

It is worth emphasizing, however, that BlackBerry tried to enter the Android device market, but it turned out very poorly. The company did not have a hardware and technology base that would match the competition.
