uhhhh, so anyway, I have been looking into pricing with other carriers. Nobody is gonna even come close to Unlimited pricing with Sprint. I visited a T-Mobile store and had a headache when I walked out. I don't know why they make it so complicated. Anyway, the rep said to get unlimited data on T-mo for 4 lines it was gonna run me 300 bucks. That is with some pay for the phones at 20 bucks a month for 20 months. This was supposedly the most "cost effective" option. Att told me to expect 35-50 bucks in extra fees and taxes. With a discount I could get 4 lines with 10gb shared data for 220, add the 35-50 and another ouch. Verizon, $240 for 6 gb plan. don't know taxes and fees on Verizon or T-mo. Anybody else looking into switching.

I was looking into Verizon since I pay about $135 for two phones on an everything data plan with Sprint. So getting something comparable would be two smartphones on a 4GB plan. With my company discount, its about the sams as Sprint. Although, I might wait it out to see if Verizon will bring back the double data promo before making the switch.
And TMo would be the cheapest if you straight up buy your handset since you are paying less for the monthly plan. Its once you start adding part of the price for the phone into your plan, as the suggested, sometimes it ends up being a wash. I was thinking of going TMo but reception has been **** here at work. Last year, my co-workers just went a month without service in our office and its been intermittent since. But, TMo did pick up a good chunk of spectrum from ATT in SoCal, so maybe later this year it'll be worth a look.

The way the t-mo guy explained it to me, I could pay the full phone price for each Z10 and my monthly unlimited plan would come around $215 with some in store only promotion. Or I could pay $20 bucks per phone for 20 months. So you would be buying each phone for around 400 bucks as opposed to the full price whatever that would be, 650 or 700 dollars. When I look a T-mobile website, they have subsidized phones. I guess I just need to wait until everything is in store with pricing.

The same line appears on the BB10 landing page (enter document.getElementsByTagName("h1").style.display = "block" in the console to see it). Plus, "z10" is listed as a keyword in the meta data. I'm not sure what it means: prep for future release, laziness, didn't know the difference between q10 and z10 (the original pic for example). Who knows?
Ive looked at all the companies too. verizon appears to be the most straight up expensive in my case. i was leaning towards tmo, but they are not going to carry the q10, and my wife is all about the physical keyboard. i think ill be able to afford att by choosing 700 mins instead of unlimited, since cell to cell is free and they have rollover. you should check if you really need unlimited talk.

I think I am just going to wait until Jan 2014 for my upgrade and get the Q10.. I mean I do love the physical keyboard, but wanted the Z10 more due to the screen size. OR since my contract with Sprint is up in 2014, I will just say eff you and go to T-Mobile.

Damn you, Sprint!!! This reminds me, but magnified by 10, when OS5 dropped from Verizon for 8330. Sprint was utilizing the 8330m and wouldn't allow for the upgrade for OS4.5. Frustrating to see everybody else with a new OS to play with and penalized for being a Sprint customer.

Bring on the Q10!
I will admit that I was a little ticked off when I heard that Sprint would not be carrying the Z10, but after watching numerous YouTube videos of the Q10, I'm thinking this will be a better choice for me anyway. At first I thought about switching carriers, but no other carrier can come close to the deal I have with Sprint. I thought about switching devices, but there's no way I would ever own another Apple product, and all of the high end Android phones are too big to be considered practical by me. I'm very satisfied with my 9930 and with BB10, a larger QWERTY keyboard, keyboard shortcuts and a 2100 mah battery the Q10 takes everything I love about my 9930 and makes it better.

Ahh decisions, decisions...
This is why Sprint needs BOTH phones. People like to have choices.

I was in a Sprint store Friday looking for a case for my 9930, which they didn't have and decided to ask about the Z10, she said that Sprint will definitely have it. Then she remembered an email she had for a few days but just opened Friday confirming the Sprint having both phones when they launch in the US, the Z10 and Q10. I then told her of hearing only Verizon getting the Z10, she reaffirmed Sprint will have both. I for one won't be disappointed if they do have the Z10, and will be getting 2 in May if they do. I know most store representatives only tell you what you want to hear, or what they think so I'll just keep patiently waiting.
