    When the beautiful Blackberry Classic comes out later this year, I will be in dire straits. Because of Tmobile's idiotic campaign in Feb to trade in BlackBerry for Iphones, BlackBerry severed their ties with Tmobile.
    Mr. Chen please help...I know Tmobile is a POS, but why must I have to suffer because of their **** up? Why must a BlackBerry lover lose out on an upgrade to the Classic because Tmobile is run by a bunch of *****? Have you talked to the other carriers to see if us Blackberry lovers who are stuck at Tmobile can switch to a company who will better serve our needs? When the BlackBerry Classic finally comes out maybe you can reduce the price on Shopblackberry so we can pay the full price of an unlocked version without running the risk of getting evicted for unpaid rent? Please help Mr. Chen...

    I'm not sure if this is already the case, but wouldn't it be great if Shop Blackberry had installment plans? It would make sense for all the people who rely on carrier plans to purchase phones.

    Since there aren't any binding x-year contracts when you buy from shop blackberry, they'd have to use a credit company, and people would have to get approved. Might as well use your own credit card or paypal's billmelater.

    Hey, I wouldn't mind if they ran a credit check on me so I could pay installments...$600 up front for a BlackBerry is steep...

    True, but it would be wise for BlackBerry to make money off the interest instead of any credit or credit card company.

    Agreed...but it still doesn't solve my dilemma...I guess I will just hafta put some money aside for the Classic...that will be very hard with two kids...where's a layaway plan when you need one(in tears)...maybe I can start a Crackberry collection plate for needy BlackBerry lovers?

    It shouldn't be more than 350$ without contract. Or it will be facing real competition from android devices.

    Its always better to get your device without contract. In long term it's way cheaper.

    Why don't you just drop T-Mobile and choose another operator?

    I wish I could...I still owe them a balance for this upgraded Q10, not to mention my daughter's iphone 5s...I think it's called an EIP balance? If that was paid off, I think I would try Sprint...anymore help or ideas? I wish Shop Blackberry could hear my cries for the upcoming Classic...(sobs) It would be a wonderful thing if they had an option to put a certain amount down...SMH

    The problem is worse than just payments. There is no support for IMS, VoLTE, Wifi calling on any phone other than Z10 and Q10.

    But while you call T-Mobile POS etc I put the blame on Chen. He is the one who could care less about the American market. Has given up.

    Post your same request to John Legere from T-Mobile and you'll actually get a reply.

    As far as switching to other carriers - I'll believe it when I see a Classic being displayed at any of the other 3 carriers. BlackBerry pretty much doesn't exist in the US anymore. You'll have to import your BlackBerry and run the correct model that corresponds to your carrier of choice and just have to live with the lack of support and lack of advanced features like VoLTE.

    Chen is not your friend, Mr and Mrs American BlackBerry lover.

    I agree. BlackBerry has one pricing system. Outrageous. Then a huge fire sale. Probably will be 600-750 dollars. Then maybe 250 in 8 months. They should start at 250 and actually sell some phones.

    Awww man, sooo harsh...but sadly your right. Why do I have to be in love with a phone that nobody wants to support? Maybe I should just throw my hands up and become an iphone drone...

    Just sell your daughter's 5S, buy her a Z10 and you'll probably have almost enough left over for new classic.

    Problem with that is she hates BlackBerry...she is a teenaged iphone drone...if I do that she will probably throw that Z10 out the window...she is one of those "I think Apple is God" people...

    Here's an idea... have you daughter buy her own phone with her own money.

    If not then she should be graceful enough to accept, whatever it is, that someone was nice enough to get for them especially when it's a phone that's "given to them". Just saying.

    Aren't you then crying on a wrong shoulder? You've chosen a contract, which does not suit your needs. Choose wisely next time.

    Note: There are operators in Germany offering changing phones each year also in long-term contracts.

    You can always just wait until it becomes available on the aftermarket. It's not wise to buy phones at launch anyway if you don't have the money to burn.
