Beyond BlackBerry's (NYSE:BB) earnings and Fairfax Financial news, there are other signs of trouble for the Canadian smartphone maker.

Sprint is willing to wait and see what happens before making any decisions, as the No. 3 carrier offers the Q10 on its network.
Carriers aren't the only partners skeptical of BlackBerry's prospects, as manufacturing partner Jabil Circuit (NYSE:JBL) now says it's looking to wind down its relationship with BlackBerry. Jabil dropped 10% on Thursday after it said it would recognize restructuring charges related to BlackBerry while also providing disappointing guidance. BlackBerry is Jabil's second-largest customer, so it's also feeling the fallout.
