$100 discount at BB shop for T-Mobile customersDear BlackBerry customer:
As a valued customer, I wanted to make you aware of recent changes in our relationship with T-Mobile US, Inc. and how those changes affect you and your service. Today, after careful deliberation, we announced that BlackBerry is not renewing T-Mobile USís license to sell BlackBerry products when the license expires on April 25 of this year. We did not make this decision lightly, and we are acting to protect the best interests of our customers.
Please be assured that as a current T-Mobile US customer, your BlackBerry smartphones will continue to work after April 25, and you should see no interruption to your service. BlackBerry will work closely with T-Mobile to provide the best possible customer service to any customer remaining on the T-Mobile US network or to any customer purchasing devices from T-Mobileís existing inventory.
BlackBerry is working closely with other carriers to provide you with alternatives should you decide to remain with BlackBerry for your long-term device and service needs. We encourage you to visit these carriers for current offers on the latest BlackBerry devices.
Also, for a limited time, you can enjoy $100 off a BlackBerry smartphone at shopblackberry.com when entering promotion code BLACKBERRY1.*
We are deeply grateful to you as a loyal BlackBerry customer, and will do everything in our power to ensure a smooth transition should you choose another carrier.

I just got this same email...I'm tempted to get a z30 to use on my Tmo account...but I was planning on just keeping my z10. Now I have to make that decision for the 50th time. A good problem to have I guess.

To those who got the email, the OP didn't paste the fine print at the bottom of that email. Here it is:
Offer expires May 31, 2014. Valid in U.S. only. Coupon only valid towards the purchase of a BlackBerry Q5, Q10 or Z10 smartphone. Quantities are limited. Limit one coupon per customer and two smartphones per customer. Offer subject to change without notice. No cash value, void where prohibited or restricted by law.

I don't see a benefit in this for US customers. If you leave Tmobile for another carrier to take advantage of the discount your only choice would be ATT. You could pick Verizon, but you wouldn't get 4G with the shop blackberry phones.
If you did switch you'd have to sign a contract. When you sign contract you get a Blackberry phone fully subsidized Q10 at $49 or a Z10 for FREE with ATT. At Verizon each phone is FREE on contract. Z30 is still $199.
The Shopblackberry says the phones won't work with Verizon. Or maybe they do but would they get 4g?

Sad that things have gotten to the point where carriers don't respect BlackBerry.
Sad that things have gotten to the point where BlackBerry can't afford to do business, the way business is done. BlackBerry doesn't have a product that people are buying in the store, they sure aren't going to go looking for it on line.
Yes this is a great opportunity if you can use a GSM phone, so take advantage of it while you can.

One does have to wonder if this is a means to promote BB's new store (a trial run if you will). Seems like a good way to cut out the middle man in device sales and their ridiculous 7 page contracts.

I can't say I'm impressed with Blackberry's prices even after 100 USD off. T-Mobile's earlier $200 USD trade in offer was a better deal; but, of course, you couldn't select a Blackberry in many places.
