Only on Sprint? I vowed NEVER to go back to Sprint years ago when they started charging customers for their failures to provide service in which they eventually acknowledged. Now that it seems the BB is only going to be on Sprint at least for the next year, I will be looking at other offerings in tablets. I was actually holding out for the playbook, but NEVER with Sprint!!!
