Blackberry Customer Care Services
Blackberry doesn’t have an official Canada based website, but its official website is more than equipped to handle any customer queries. The website lists a wide variety of options for its customers based on their type of query, the type of services they subscribe to, etc.
Essentially, there are separate support portals for subscribers of the various services Blackberry provides.
Customer support comes in several forms on the website including Phone Numbers, Email Addresses, and Forms.
This section allows you to find the right solution depending on your query, complaint, or concern. The catalog begins with a single option: Inquiry Type. Once you select an option, it leads you to another option, and another, and so on, until it lands on a solution.
Say, you need technical support for your smartphone. It will lead you to an option that requires your smartphone IMEI. It will also list options to find your device.
This section pertains to Contact Sales. Here you can fill out a short form that details your complaint, query, or concern.

Blackberry Customer Support Reviews
While the Customer Service Reviews on Blackberry at Trustpilot have a fair score of 3.3, they don’t present a full picture. Most of the 41 reviews are concerned with Blackberry smartphones, which the company doesn’t make anymore.
There are only a handful of reviews that concern customer service, and they’re mostly positive. However, the sample size is too small to give a full verdict.
Blackberry clearly has several options for its customers to contact its customer representatives on several issues. They definitely have the options for customers, yet it’s hard to judge by the lack of reviews online whether the customer support is fair, good, great or bad.
However, the sheer number of options available for customer support bodes well for customers. So you should be covered, no matter what the issue is.
I purchased a Blackberry Priv a year ago from BELL. This device has crashed 6 or 7 times when there was a software update. Support has tried to repair it on line and have succeeded on a few occasions. At one point, August 2016, they actually sent it to Cambridge Ontario to do a factory re-boot. It was done very efficiently over a 3 day period. However, the next update caused the device to crash again. The last time it crashed, November 2016, they very efficiently agreed to replace the LEMON device with a new one. I received all the documentation but nothing has happened. The new device has not arrived as of today, December 1, 2016. Customer Support says it will be looked after but there is a BACK LOG. Not clear what that means, and neither was the Customer Support rep. Great Device when it’s working. I GOT A LEMON and would like them to do what they said and get me a g–d—- new one. I have been a Blackberry user since the first device. I am loyal and would like them to be loyal. Perhaps they will get the message through this forum.Helpful We appreciate your evaluation.
II have a BB 9700 for 5 years now. I am in London, UK and had been working with O2 and I pay them 6GBP/month for the “honour” of using a BB. For two years the arrangement worked fine, until Bell decided to change some of their email server settings. Ever since then, I can send email from the BB, but I do not receive any.Helpful We appreciate your evaluation.
Talked to O2, Bell and BB. BB told me that my device is not under warranty and I need to pay $30 for support!
I already pay 6GBP every month and there is nothing wrong with the device, but the BB email SERVICE!
All my other devices(PC, tablets) email work fine even with the new Bell settings and no changes were necessary!
I re-created the email accounts I use on the BB and received email confirmation from BB that I will start receiving my email in 20 minutes!
This happened 3 times, but no email was received in the last 3 months!
With this kind of service, no wonder BB disappears!
I have a passport and a longtime Blackberry user and supporter of the company. I am happy with the device for the most part but the BB link is total XXXX. Every time I try to backup, the link wont work and I have to delete it and reinstall it. That process is so frustrating that unfortunately my next phone will not be a BB. Trying to get any type of support to help is ridiculously bad and I am not paying to have someone help me with what is an obvious flaw in that software from Blackberry. Very disappointing!!Helpful We appreciate your evaluation.
My blackberry world doesn’t work please helpHelpful We appreciate your evaluation.
Sorry got rid of my blackberry. Was not happy with how it worked. I also instructed IT Dept. to have all employees change to I Phones. I have used blackberry since they first came out, but now they just do not work.Helpful We appreciate your evaluation.
