If you are planning to buy a new Verizon phone any time soon, but don’t want to spend a penny on it, here is a quite simple tip how to achieve that. In this case the new phone won’t cost you at all as Verizon Wireless is giving out phones for free. And we are not talking about some low-end outdated devices but decent high-end smartphones released in 2013 . The phones you can score for free today include Nokia Lumia 928, Kyocera Hydro Elite, and Blackberry Z10. In order to get your hands on one of the phones without any costs whatsoever you will need to sign a new two-year contract with the carrier.
It seems that secure smartphones are becoming increasingly popular. In addition to recently launched Blackphone, Boeing Black and “Snowden” phone, another extra secure device is now offered to the public. The SecuSmart Encrypted BlackBerry Z10, which until now was available only for government officials, is now up for sale for regular customers. However, be prepared – the phone is not cheap. The handset will set you back a whopping 2,000 euros, that is an equivalent of $2,770. Chances are, however, that customers who are interested in such kind of device probably won’t be trading recipes but far more sensitive and valuable data, so it may be worth it.
Black Friday has come and gone probably leaving many folks sore from all this running between retailers in search of the best deals on electronics. If you were lucky enough to find a smartphone or tablet of your dreams at great price, you may rest now and count your savings. If not, you will have another chance this coming Monday. You won’t even have to leave your house, since Cyber Monday is all about online deals, hence the name.
There is always a way to find an unlocked phone if really need one. But why complicate things if you can grab a SIM-free device right from the manufacturer’s online store? That is apparently what BlackBerry thought when it started offering unlocked Q10 and Z10 via its official online BlackBerry store in the US.
Following not a very profitable period, BlackBerry decided to start offering its first all-touch smartphone, the BlackBerry Z10, at lower price to encourage higher sales. Those of you who waited with the decision to treat yourself to the phone, now have a chance for a real bargain. Both AT&T and Verizon Wireless dropped the price by $100 and are selling the BlackBerry Z10 for $99.99. Sounds good? Amazon went even further and has the Verizon version on sale for a penny and AT&T for $49.99. This is a whopping discount of the original price of $199.99.
The all-touch BlackBerry Z10 is now available on almost all major US carriers as well as several regional ones. Undoubted advantage of buying a phone from a carrier is its subsidized price, but there is also one downside. In order to take advantage of the subsidy, you have to sign a costly contract with your service provider for 24 months. If you think that a 2-year pact with a carrier is far too long, you can opt for an unlocked phone without contract, which is compatible with any GSM service provider such as AT&T and T-Mobile in the US. Prices for unlocked Blackberry Z10 start at $579.99 but you can get the handset even cheaper if you decide to purchase pre-owned one.
The BlackBerry Z10 made it to the top of Amazon’s list of Hot New Releases and for a very good reason – it is probably one of the most interesting devices launched recently. But as it usually happens, quality comes with a price, which in the case of the Z10 for Verizon and AT&T reads $199.99 and this is only if you agree to sign a new two-year contract. That may be not the highest price out there, but for sure it is not cheap either. What can you do if you really want the new all-touch BlackBerry Z10 cheaper? Here is a tip. You can grab one at Walmart or Amazon for instance.
Verizon customers, at last you can get your hands on the BlackBerry Z10 as the phone is now available at carrier’s store. Big Red began offering today the phone in black as well as an exclusive white version. Both phones are priced at $199.99 with a new two-year contract. As a little extra incentive, Verizon is throwing in a free two-day shipping on online orders placed from Monday through Friday placed before 4:30 pm. In case you do not remember well all the details about the Blackberry Z10, here is a quick reminder of the specs and features.
If you were waiting for the new BlackBerry Z10 to be available on T-Mobile, we have some good news for you, because this day has just arrived. The Z10 is one of the first devices to support T-Mobile’s new 4G LTE network. The handset is sold with UNcarrier new plans and is available either for full price of $531.99 or with a $99.99 up-front payment with a $18 monthly installment for 24 months. On T-Mobile website you may find: “Qualifying rate plan required. 0% APR on approved credit for well-qualified buyer”, which would suggest that maybe not everyone will be eligible for that plan.
AT&T is the first US carrier to offer the all-touch BlackBerry Z10. The handset costs $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement and is now available through all channels. Other major carriers, except for Sprint, will follow in AT&T’s footsteps soon. Verizon, which is currently taking pre-orders for the Z10, will start offering the phone on March 28. T-Mobile has not the released the launch date so far, but the phone is expected to go on sale by the end of this month. Business customers had a chance to purchase the device on T-Mobile earlier this month for $249.99 on contract.
Wanna be one of the first people in the US to get your hands on the new all-touch BlackBerry Z10? If you choose AT&T as your carrier, you will be able to enjoy the Z10 in 10 short days. AT&T is planning to launch the phone on March 22 but as of today the carrier has also started accepting pre-orders. The phone is selling for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement. AT&T will start shipping it with no additional costs two days before the planned launch date, on March 20. This way, the carrier wants to make sure that you will be among the first ones having Blackberry Z10 in hands.
It looks like BlackBerry comeback did not go as planned and its latest phone, the Z10, will not be offered by all major carriers in the US. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are yet to announce the exact launch dates of the Blackberry Z10, which were delayed due to long testing period, but they confirmed that they will carry the handset. As you can see, Sprint is not on the list, so it is clear that the Now Network will be the only one of the ‘Big Four’ carriers in the US not to offer the touch screen BlackBerry Z10.
During a press event in New York City yesterday, BlackBerry, until recently known as RIM, announced the availability of its new BlackBerry 10 smartphones, although the Z10 will not hit the stores until March and the Q10 April, a month later. BlackBerry chief executive blamed the delay on long testing periods and assured that everyone in the company is doing what it can be done do to pull the date in. Great news is that all four major carriers: Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint, will offer the new Blackberry 10 phones, and here is what they had to say after the event.
It is often said that the BlackBerry Z10 will the “to be or not to be” of BlackBerry, formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM). Maybe not literally, since the company is still hanging in there, but it is no secret that a lot of effort was put into designing the handset and a lot is expected of it. The Z10 was officially announced today at BlackBerry event in New York and will be available for US customers in March, while Canada will see it February 5 for CAD 149.99 with the typical 3-year contract.
The BlackBerry Z10 leaked so many times in photo and video that it holds very few secrets. And now, thanks to @evleaks, we even have what seems to be the official press image. The picture does not show anything new but, if it is real, it confirms the phone’s rather modest design without any outstanding features but the BlackBerry favor is still present. Of course, there is no physical keyboard, since the Blackberry Z10 is RIM’s all-touch device.
If there was ever any doubt that Blackberry’s latest smartphones would make it to Verizon, now there is none. Courtesy of @evleaks, we are happy to present you a screenshot of a Verizon promo page for the new Blackberry Z10. It appears to be a typical landing page where you can register for updates on the Blackberry 10 devices through Verizon. As far as we know the page is not live yet, but it looks authentic enough to clarify a few things.
If you are impatiently waiting to see more of the soon-to-be released Blackberry Z10, it is your lucky day. A new batch of high-res images has just appeared and here we present them for your viewing pleasure. Actually they do not reveal anything new comparing to what we covered about Blackberry L-Series so far, but it is always nice to see RIM’s new touch screen handset, which by the way looks great – still Blackberry-ish but with a lot of fresh touches.
