    Default BB10 and Sprint

    Has anyone heard if Sprint will have the BB10 device soon after release?

    I would like to upgrade from the Bold, and was planning on doing it right after release, but I can't seem to find any
    information about Sprint offering it.

    Thanks for any information.

    My gut tells me they will be a late adopter, if at all. Yesterday they announced they will carry wp8 by summer, clearly many months ahead, yet this late not a peep about BB10. I could be 100% wrong but dots are just not connecting correctly with them, so far.

    haven't heard anything either, but I can say this if they don't it will be bye bye sprint, over the past year I've seen them carring less and less BB products.

    I don't know if they will; the Dev Alpha tradeup let you choose between Verizon or GSM if I remember right.
    I'm planning on leaving Sprint for TMo anyway, and taking all 5 lines with me.

    I wouldn't necessarily draw any conclusions from CES conferences. RIM has probably prohibited any carriers from publicly announcing anything about BB10 before 30th January. I'm sure that then, RIM will announce every carrier that plans to sell BB10 devices. RIM has traditionally held relatively good relationships with carriers, so I'm pretty sure the four major U.S. carriers will have BB10 at some point.

    talked to customer service the other day abt this while dealing w/ unrelated issue & they said they would have it but not sure when,,, w/ the exception of BB7 release, Sprint usually lags behind other carriers in releasing phones/updates/etc,,, i really like my unlimited everything too,,, i've been w/ 'em since '99 when i got my Motorola StarTac so i have all the extra goodies also,,, i say be patient,,, they may or may not have it on launch but they'll have it,,, i was planning on waiting on Aristo so i'm not in a hurry,,, i'll let 'em work the bugs out then use my upgrade,,, i'm not going to leave & give up all my extra goodies, there's no one that could match the deal i have...

    If Sprint is going to be late to the party, they deserve to lose business.

    I don't think that they will have BB10 for launch because they are too heavily invested in selling Iphones since they made that huge distribution deal with Apple.

    nothing is for sure. I'm sure RIM made a good prestation when they were talking to all carriers. sprint has always come on board. sometimes later, but sometimes earlier. I am sprint so I am optimistic and hoping for the best

    If they support WP 8 as effectively as they did WP 7, that won't be very exciting. But I'd expect them to go with BB 10, they didn't do to badly with BB before.

    I set up a Google Alert for news about a BB 10 release announcement, and so the waiting begins.

    don't sweat it,,, once your contract expires you just go month to month w/ the same rate,,, that's the way it's always worked for me...

    I believe there was an article months ago and one of the higher ups at Sprint said they were going to take a wait and see approach. I believe that was in August. I will give them until Mid February and that's it!

    Thanks for all responses. Guess we will all have wait and see. . . .
    I really do hope they have it soon. Already allocated $$ for it and would hate to leave sprint behind due to unlimited data, but I need better internet than BB Bold due to work needs. Hope it happens soon!

    yes but that was way before RIM started making presentations to the carriers. let's hope they did a great job and changed things
