BlackBerry smartphones with a proprietary operating system have stopped working forever since January 4th. This was reported by the company.
Outdated devices will not be able to perform even basic functions such as calling or sending a text message. In addition, owners of classic BlackBerry push-button phones will not be able to use the Internet either via Wi-Fi or through the networks of mobile operators.
The company announced that it would stop supporting outdated smartphones last fall.
