Someone at BlackBerry's been watching Matthew McConaughey's goofy Lincoln commercials, and specifically the one that states, "Sometimes you've got to go back to actually move forward."

Evidently BlackBerry is still miffed at T-Mobile for encouraging users to trade in their BlackBerry handsets for iPhone devices. As a result, the Canadian handset maker has decided to terminate its relationship with the fourth largest carrier in the U.S. by opting not to renew T-Mobile's license to sell BlackBerry...
