    You're going to go through a bunch of hassle.

    I tried ordering the Classic from T-Mobile this morning, but it doesn't show up as an upgrade option, so I decided to chat with a rep abut it. First, they said that T-Mobile doesn't support BlackBerry anymore - we know this is false - so I was already turned off by this person. Then they mentioned that they don't have any in stock and then they dropped a bombshell stating that it's only available for new contracts online.

    I called in as well and spoke to a nice rep who said that was false, but she wasn't able to explain why I couldn't upgrade online or over the phone. They both suggested that BlackBerry fans visit "participating" T-Mobile stores if we want to buy without a new line. Base on other experiences with trying to procure BlackBerry phones in stores, I'm gonna call tough luck on that one too.

    Now I'm looking into just buying a white Classic from eBay and calling it a day because buying a phone should not be this difficult.

    Don't buy a white Classic for use on TMO! It's not meant for the North American market. You won't get LTE anywhere and '4G' only in some places, not all that you should.

    Thanks for sharing your experience too.

    That figures. I guess I'll check out those stores and update.

    Yeah the US will probably be the last country on the planet to get the white one, but I'm sure we'll get it. Depends on how long you want to wait.

    All my local VZW stores carry BlackBerry phones. Q10, Classic (which I bought at the store) Z10 and Z30. But maybe it's because of location.

    Hey! I just got off the phone with them. They called me back and said that they fixed the issue.

    So if you end up ordering, I fully expect an unboxing post from you.
