    Default My Verizon Z30 experience

    So today I noticed that the Z30 is down to $99.99 with a 2 year contract at Verizon. I have wanted to try a Z30 for a while and I won't buy the Z30 from Blackberry directly because it doesn't have LTE on AT&T in my area (and most areas), T-mobile coverage in my area is pretty poor and the Z30 doesn't have WiFi calling and the Verizon Z30 is the only one with wireless charging. So, I figure Verizon has good coverage so why not get it from them.
    First I called my local store to talk to a woman there who I dealt with in the past because I was a Verizon customer in the past. She was busy so while holding another rep picked-up and asked if he could help. I told him I wanted to buy the Z30 and open a new account. First stinking thing out of his mouth was "You don't want any BlackBerry's" I said why. He said "they are going out of business and we don't carry them anymore". Needless to say I immediately corrected him to the fact that they do carry them online. Then went on to tell him they are not going out of business and that he shouldn't be telling people that. What a jerk. I told him to stop his ranting against BlackBerry and put Mandy on the phone.
    Anyway to make this long story a little shorter, I finally got to talk to Mandy and ordered the phone and got a promotional plan for unlimited talk and text and 1GB data for a TOTAL cost of $60/mo. So I am so psyched. I am getting a Z30 for just $99.99 and a great plan for just $60/mo. I hope I love the Z30 as much as most people on Crackberry does.

    Congrats on the phone purchase, I'm still waiting for the off contract price to dip after I spent all that money on the z10 preorder off contract.

    I can't wait to get it. They said 3-5 business days. So I am hoping before Wednesday next week. I have a Z10 right now on AT&T and I love it. But I really want to try the Z30. Is the Z30 a lot bigger than the Z10. I don't want a phone that's too big.

    You will absolutely love your new Z30 when it arrives. I moved up to a Z30 from a Z10 and the difference is clearly better. I was initially worried the screen would be to big for my liking but I found out it is just perfect. You are going to love it!

    The woman I dealt with at Verizon said there is a promotional plan for $60/mo for unlimited talk and text and 1GB data. She said she doesn't know how long it will be valid for. The special for the phone right now at $99.99 was what convinced me to do it. I thought it was a great deal too.

    I absolutely love my Z30. I lived my Z10 but it pales in comparison. Best phone on the market for my money.

    If you look really hard daily on Craig's list and ebay, you can find new for $250-$300. You won't be able to get insurance, but I thought I would take the chance and hold off using my upgrade for the Z50 or whatever full touch comes next.

    Moved from ATT Q10 to VZW Z30. Better service, better phone. You will have no regrets. None.

    Thanks everybody. It's going to seem like forever until I receive the phone. It's going to be one of the longest 3-5 business days of my life. LOL.

    I'm always afraid the online phones will have been reported stolen and I won't be able to activate it :/

    On E-bay. Once device is bought ask for the EIN number call Verizon and make sure it can activate. If it arrives atnd it won't activate Ebay/ Paypal will get you your money back. On Craig's list make seller come inside and sit down while you activate. No activation, no cash. I have bought 2 phones this way no problem. No insurance, but no problem with phone.

    Good catch. I will probably just keep it the same because I really love my Z10. I think I will keep my AT&T account just as a back-up and en extra line.

    I had a Verizon z30 and found it to be junky. I got the blackberry unbranded model. I'm using it on att. I was able to change my plan recently also. I was paying over $90 a month for unlimited text and free Mobil to Mobil and 450 minutes , with 3 gigs of data. I now have with the updated plan unlimited talk and text and 2 gigs of data for about $60. Pretty happy. Currently waiting on a rogers sim so I can update to latest os version. Congrats on getting the phone.

    You really think 1 gb of data a month will be enough?

    Congratulations on your purchase. I personally guarantee that you will love it. If you don't, I will pay to have it shipped to me and you can carry on with your Z10.

    The size is absolutely perfect, as well as the performance. Plus the carbon-fiber back and silver bezel, and vibrant screen. It's a beauty to hold and to operate. Congrats again!
