Kim Kardashian loves her Blackberry like Kanye loves Kanye. So you can imagine her despair when her beloved Bold died.

The reality show star sent out a series of tweets on Wednesday informing the Twitterverse of her phone’s demise, and asking for advice on what she should do next. This was followed by a picture of a generic Blackberry Bold and an illustration of her crying, which is now also her Twitter profile picture.

The Blackberry (BBRY) phone is likely one that will soon go extinct. As Gizmodo notes, if you ever see a headline touting the name “Blackberry” the article is either about how the brand is dying … or about how much Kim Kardashian loves it. The Guardian for one has previously written that she keeps three in stock just in case one breaks. Unfortunately, it looks like she just went through the last one.

It’s not clear whether the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star will totally give up on Blackberry. But even Blackberry, it seems, has given up on Blackberry. The company announced at the beginning of this year that it would not be releasing its latest version, and would instead
focus on Android phones.
