    Hi Beemer,

    We won't be stocking the Blackberry Z10 on the Virgin network. The decision was made due to a high return rate on previous full-touchscreen Blackberry devices but we're looking to stock newer Blackberry's later this year with physical keyboards.

    I post details of new devices here so keep an eye out on this

    Many thanks.

    Been like 4 years since the Storm, time for them to let it go already. Guess once bitten, twice shy.

    Makes so much sense, wait for the one with more moving/breakable parts instead. ( not claiming bb quality here, just questioning Virgin logic)

    More parts plus "same" touch screen = more chances to break.

    And to the person saying storm, there was also a 9900 issue at launch too... #IJS

    Yes, I said Storm, seamed pertinent to Virgin's comments referring to "touch screen", last time I looked at my 9900 it was not a full touch-screen.

    Yup. Virgin UK just lost me to T-Mobile. They used to steal money out of my bank though. So it's all good.

    Hmm. I have a 9105 with Virgin, contract up in June. I want to get a BB10 device to replace it - either Z10 or Q10. Hope they have some kind of BB10 device by then, otherwise I might have to look elsewhere

    Wow, what a moronic reason. "Something in the past was returned a lot, so, we're going to assume that the same will happen with this totally different phone and OS."

    Really stupid.

    i echo this sentiment. i was gonna try and drum up demand but i may just buy it unlocked from elsewhere and let them lose out on money.

    no they are talking about the storm. virgin never did the torch devices apart from the 9810 & briefly the 9800.

    they will apparently be carrying the Q10 in May according to the guy I was speaking to when trying to sort a voicemail issue in December.

    Virgin UK is the same - vast majority of Android handsets, with one or two Blackberrys and a few Nokia Windows phones thrown in for good measure
