T-Mobile Offers Discounts to BlackBerry Users as Cut-Off Looms

Shortly after BlackBerry announced that it was severing ties with T Mobile USA following a recent very public dispute between the companies, T Mobile has responded.
T-Mobile said that it will offer BlackBerry customers a $100 credit toward any new device.
It was the offer of a discount on an Apple iPhone for existing BlackBerry users that caused the fuss in the first place.
Although this time, the $100 discount can also be used against a new BlackBerry Q10 or the Z10, which may be just a way of ensuring that the company clears out old stock before the cut-off date imposed by BlackBerry.
In addition, T-Mobile's increasingly outspoken CEO said in a blog post that the mobile network will continue to support BlackBerry users with OS updates and services, even after BlackBerry itself pulled the plug.
