Until BlackBerry® shut down their legacy services on 4 January 2022, I used a BlackBerry® smartphone as my main mobile phone alongside an iPhone XS.

I’ve eventually had to switch to an iPhone full-time as the shutdown included BlackBerry Internet Service™, which enabled older BlackBerry® smartphones like the one that I was using, to access the Internet and to send and receive emails.

Despite the passage of time, there remains a significant BlackBerry® fanbase on websites such as CrackBerry and Reddit. Because I’m a fan myself, I’m eager to keep the original experience going for as long as I can.
