    We've heard training is next week for stores. Could it be the week after. What day does Verizon release or is it random?

    I'm guessing they know exact or ballpark, or they wouldn't have said "soon". I have a friend that showed me that the Z10 "Laguna" in Black and White is in the retail store's rebate(?) system I believe.

    By the way this says find out when you be the owner. Does it give a way to find out somewhere or where are they going? Seems incomplete.

    [speculating ] I don't see them releasing the Z10 before the 3rd week of March at the earliest. Given that they are starting training in the next week or so, which will probably last at least a week, taking us to the 2nd week. Also their history of having at least a 1 week buffer between the announcement and the release.

    LOL, I'm beginning to think I'm insane, hinging on every tweet or tidbit from BBRY and VzW about the US release. Analyzing and researching every spec of wording from one of their Facebook pages or tweets... checking CrackBerry every 1/2 hour... Crap, the first step is admitting you have a problem. Where do I go for further help!?

    :-D

    Probably just a link to their announcement email registration site... You will "find out when"... they send the announcement.

    Today is March 2nd and every word is the Z10 will drop in March. Most it can be is 29 days away, that's "soon" in my book. I would think they will announce 10 days to 2 weeks ahead and start to take pre-orders, just based on what I have seen USA carriers do with other phones of consequence.

    One question I have for those on Verizon with unlimited plans,with the phone coming shortly now, have you decided what you will do about paying full price and keeping your unlimited or buying subsidized and giving it up?

    Paying full price because my parents used my upgrade to replace my sister's broken phone. Now my upgrade is in February, 2014 so I anticipated that and started saving back in August. Perk is i get to keep my unlimited data plan for a little while longer

    Do we actually have a choice? Or will they eventually force us to give it up one way or another?

    Default Verizon Z10 Coming Sooner Than We Think?

    I already gave it up unfortunately. My father and i share a plan because we are in Business and we have alot tied to our numbers. It was cheaper for us to go to the shar everything plan. I use wifi at least 80% of my day.

    I am over it. The more i stress i lost my unlimited data the worse it does for me. I just want my Z10 and to be happy. I will survive without it. I used to have a phone with NO data and i did just fine. It does suck to not have it anymore. Why waste your time griping about it.

    Sent from my BlackBerry 9930 on Verizon Wireless.

    Salesperson training takes a couple of hours and will probably be done in shifts. I would imagine POS inventory and at least the dummy phones are lurking in various warehouses and distribution points ready to go. I can quite easily see a launch in a week to 2 weeks.

    Soon from BlackBerry is an extremely broad term. Never means less than 2 weeks.
