Less than six years ago, in 2016, the internet was shaken by the news that PT Tiphone Mobile Inonesia Tbk would be signed among the phones produced by Blackberry so far. The results of BlackBerry’s business were so bad that it was threatened with bankruptcy. However, the consequences of poor business results will soon be felt by users of Blackberry smartphones with Blackberry 10 and BlackBerry OS installed.
The turning point for users of BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS operating systems occurred on December 31, 2019. At the end of 2019, BlackBerry closed the BlackBerry Global Store. This means that new mobile applications are no longer available for older BlackBerry phones. Earlier, the doors of the BlackBerry PlayBook online video chat service were closed in March 2018.
At the beginning of January (more precisely, January 4), BlackBerry phones with BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS will become completely useless. Even the simplest services, such as connecting to data networks, sending SMS messages, making phone calls, and even making emergency calls, will no longer be available to users. So if you’re still using an old BlackBerry phone, replace it immediately before it’s too late.
