Man, what a downer. Hopefully we'll here something concrete soon. I'm not holding out too much hope, as right before they did the whole iPhone thing, they dropped the 9850. I was so excited for January 30th. What a let down.

This is a bit of an outrage, but not beyond Sprint's continued Incompetence. I have signed the Petition, and I'm hoping that it works, but knowing that my carrier went all in on the Apple phone at the expense of other customers is disheartening. This makes me angry to know that they care about Apple's demands more than a loyal customer.
Especially, since Apple has not done anything but harm Sprint and their customers. They have been operating at a loss since before and after selling the Apple phone. Them not at least offering all of BlackBerry's options is horrible. Especially, since they make it a point to remind me of all of their great touch screen phones. There is no good business reason not to offer the Z10 & Q10.

Re: Damn you, sprint!!! No Z10?
Here is something to think about, and it has happened before, what if the person talking for Sprint and got his model #'s mixed up? Because the Q10 won't be out before April. Someone says the wrong thing and the dogs become rabid way to quick.

I signed the Sprint petition too, but I'm not going to grovel. It's time to just vote with our wallets. I left netflix when they put us through their pricing bs, and it may just be time to leave sprint now.

The Verizon model is RFA91LW. RIM has some documentation on thier site, but it hasn't made it to the FCC yet. The LTE frequency on it is 700MHz (i.e. Verizon). There are 5 Z10 models:
RFK121LW and RFF91LW (GSM+LTE only difference is RFF91 has Tri-Band UMTS and RFK121 has Quad band.) ,
RG80UW (GSM, No LTE)
RFH121LW (GSM+LTE- EURO)
RFA91LW (CDMA+LTE 700MHz) Verizon, not on the FCC site yet.
My conclusion... The company formerly know as R.I.M. has not manufactured a Z10 that will run on Sprint's LTE network. I guess the questions now would be 1. Did Sprint decide they didn't want one, so RIM didn't make one. or 2. Did RIM decline to make one for Sprint (Maybe due to Sprint's ridiculous need to have embedded LTE SIMS).

My contract is up in October again. **** I might go and do AT&T or whatnot at the same time as sprint till I run out or do etf and drop sprint all together. So sick of sprint lagging. But would be weird wife is android fan and sprint works for her so two carriers. Lol.

Re: Damn you, sprint!!! No Z10?
I used to be upset with sprint not carrying the z10, but after checking the app availability for BB10 and reading about the crappy Gmail service and Google calendar, I no longer want a BB. And don't tell me it's Google a fault for stopping support because RIM should have found a workaround that if they want to compete. You can't expect Google to put everything on a silver platter and serve it to its competitors.
