    So I've been in two different Telus stores and saw, with my own eyes, lots of Blackberry passport boxes. They wouldn't let me buy them but said they can sell them to me tomorrow. 9:30 when the store opens. I called some other local (Halifax) Telus stores, they have shipments in their stores too, all ready for tomorrow morning. This isn't news, we all know this, but I just wanted to confirm that I saw them with my own eyes and they're there.

    EDIT - No one can give me a price Also, contrary to what I was told earlier - they CAN'T sell to until 11 AM (Atlantic Time, 10 AM Eastern Time). I suppose synchronizing moment of "going live" makes sense, but it means some serious thumb twiddling before 11am for us Haligonians

    I'm excited.

    I'm sure they wouldn't reveal to him until he comes back tomorrow.

    I could have and should have asked about colors. Sorry I didn't. I was just happy I had a firm - "you can buy tomorrow and look at all these boxes" I should be able to find out about price in a few hours and will edit the post with this info then.

    I wonder if they will sell them outright. I am with rogers but i bought my Z30 from telus so as long as they use the same bands again I will buy from them. Assuming rogers doesn't have it tomorrow

    I'll be buying on contract, but in TELUS store they said I could buy outright, adding with a snicker ''its not an iPhone''.

    I've asked downtown Toronto locations of Rogers and Bell but they didn't even tell me whether they'd be carrying it.

    Anyone know where in Toronto we can grab one tomorrow (similar to the Telus story?)

    Most likely they won't say anything because they aren't allowed to or they don't know anything as like crackberry won't post any more news unless it is released by blackberry following the the launch date. They don't want to get in trouble.

    No chance of vzw. May switch from vzw if no answer given couple days and someone else does.

    Being that T Mobile USA no longer is licensed to carry the Blackberry products anymore, I seriously doubt it. I think our only hope is that they offer it at the blackberry.com store.

    I just called my local Bell store and they said that they did not have it and did not know and kept saying the official launch is tomorrow... perhaps a hint that they are playing by the rules and it is sitting in their back room. The Bell authorized dealers locally have said it hasn't even shown up on their order list yet which doesn't surprise me but said that they have sent numerous requests asking for stock the moment it is available. I know this doesn't help anyone but it is beginning to worry me that it might not be available from Bell for awhile. Might have to buy a telus one and unlock it.

    It WOULD be kind of cool if one of the announcements tomorrow was T-mo fence-mending...

    I agree, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon I am afraid. Because of the very low market share and brand presence that blackberry has here in the USA, which is virtually non existent. T Mobile is in the drivers seat on the fence mending issue.

    Maybe,.. but one of the things T-Mobile has been pushing hard for is sticking it to the other two, to steal away subscribers. They could see this as a fairly easy way to say,.. Look BlackBerry fans, we know what it is to have to fight against the tide,.. we're the only ones carrying the beloved Passport,.. come on over and we'll make you feel at home.
