BlackBerry wants your help
All you need to do is click on the sourcelink and like the post, and then leave your submission including a description of what you have in mind. There are some ground rules of course. BlackBerry doesn't want to see vulgar emoticons, or one with sexual overtones. The beleaguered company is asking for submissions that you would consider PG 13. For example, some early ideas include a facepalm emoticon and one for a high five. Another suggestion was for a wtf emoticon, but we don't think that it meets with the PG13 requirement.
BlackBerry is taking submissions through 5pm EST on November 20. We'd love to tell you that those ideas being accepted by the company will be rewarded with a prize or a new phone, but the truth is that you are merely turning over your idea to the company. If your idea is used by BlackBerry in the future, at the least you can tell your kids and grandkids that a particular emoticon was your idea.

Blackberry improve you customer service. Your service centers in India asks for 10K to repair a 12K phone. Do you realize what rubish you are selling and how you are supporting it.

12K Rupees is the subsidized price on a multi-year plan no?

Not in India. Here we aren't sold devices with subsidized price with a contract. We have option to pay in emi through credit or debit cards or just buy it straight.

The only help I can offer Blackberry is this:
Go home, Blackberry. You're drunk.

This is like asking people for a glass of water while your house burns down...

Talk about twisting the word.
To begin with, giving an in depth information on BlackBerry's situation is uncalled for.
The idea behind this was to create emotions that customers wants, not just add random emotions to increase their profile.
I thought it was something positive, but this article makes it sound that BlackBerry is desperate in need of ideas for emotions.. That is just sad..

They should look at all the meme's and use them as a basis for emoticons. I'd like to see a "U mad bro" emoticon. lol

I have a Blackberry Z10. Thank god it's not my primary phone. It's not even my auxiliary phone. It is my auxiliary phone's auxiliary phone. That's a good thing too because the phone is a P.O.S. It's absolutely terrible.

everybody i know who used to use blackberry (almost religiously) has now jumped ship to android. Im surprised that they still even have any users left (apart from government depts that still use them)
