    you are probably a US order, correct? seems like they got a batch of Canada Passports... Still awaiting the US side - you dont want the canadian passports anyway (they are all defective) so dont worry, ours are coming soon





    ps, before somebody gets offended, i am obviously joking...
    What's wrong with our passports, just because they say A in front of it, doesn't mean they are defective. A!

    They are not different at all. Why do people keep saying this? I posted a picture of my US bought Passport's box. Clearly marked for sale in either country.

    Yes, but I doubt the phones destined for USA would also have French on the box. Spanish, maybe, but not French. Wasn't yours destined for the GWN?

    If you had tracking for it, can you see where it shipped from?

    Mine was for the US. Or atleast whatever amazon.com was shipping out.

    I find lots of products sold in the US nowadays include french/english packaging. Makes sense if you want to target both US and Canada.

    As for Spanish,.. only the ones targeted to those "certain demographic and socio-economic groups." (not BlackBerry... lol)

    Well I an from Canada, ordered VIP Oct 3rd, 93159 and no confirmation of shipping. Many calls and emails to DR but no definitive answer when I might see mine. I don't think Canada is getting preferential treatment more are the filling orders in the order purchases were made. At least from my order at least.

    Yes of course, but the point is that the package being distributed to the US is also marked for sale in Canada. So the idea that there are different "versions" and that DR only has Canadian ones to ship, is not valid.

    The point I was trying to make in earlier posts, but I can't confirm is that the Canadian orders may be coming from a different distribution center because of the customs paperwork. I forget the term for it, but it is a bonded warehouse where the shipments are consolidated and then sent over the border at once. If it works this way, that warehouse may have just got a shipment and this is why the Canadian orders are filling.

    Amazon has a similar system, I think in the USA near Vancouver. Ebay has something similar too, where the US seller ships it to an eBay warehouse and eBay then ships it across the border, dealing with all the customs and taxes.

    Can't we all just get a long, I know some of us are frustrated still waiting. But they are being shipped, you may get a shipping notice tomorrow or next week. Lets hope for the best.

    Did anyone buy their passport from the US blackberry site and have it shipped to Canada? Did you have to pay duties + taxes? I didn't so i'm a little surprised; just curious to see if someone did have to pay

    That definitely sounds like a plausible explanation. Same boxed version, but different logistics route.

    Hahahaha... I was just kidding obviously. I'm Hispanic myself, and readily admit that, at least in the US,.. we are not exactly at the top of the our game except when it comes to multiplying (and I don't mean in math).

    But if you're wondering what types of products are consistently labeled in Spanish and English: cheaper personal care items, baby products, toys, cheaper food products (except for specifically Hispanic items, which are labeled just in Spanish), landscaping products, prepaid phones and plans, etc.

    Not racist,.. just observant.
