It is interesting that the devices stop working when the support ends.
Other Android devices don't have that "feature".
(interim moderator's note: Blackberry phones receive some services from
Blackberry, and those were turned off. There has been some discussion on
about how to circumvent this, but it's not trivial.
Blackberry-branded Android phones still work. As of this morning my old
Blackberry Classic, with no SIM card, still works for Wi-Fi access.)
