    Down at the "passport 499 coupon thread" people are getting worried about ordering the VIP edition and getting nothing in return.

    I believe the following:

    A while ago in a crackberry thread, and in the I can make it better website, users were asking why BlackBerry stopped giving out the leather pouch with its devices, and many actually commented giving various ideas and opinions, one actually noted that a VIP edition should be sold with case, screen protector Nd various chargers for travellers and business men, who prefer opening a box and finding all that they need without actually buying or searching for accessories.

    I truly believe BlackBerry actually liked the idea and proceeded with it for the passport.

    This would explain why the VIP edition is not out of stock despite the hefty orders, and would explain the extra premium they are asking for.

    If my opinion is correct, well done BlackBerry!!!!!

    Brilliant move, I've always lived the sensation of having all the I need in the box without the hassle of searching for accessories.

    Guys ur thoughts

    What extra premium cost? It costs exactly the same as the regular one.

    How could you possibly ha ve any idea about the heftiness or orders vs. The stock available.

    Chatter on a fan site about finds is really not going to have much impact.

    Btw, how many who orders have confirmations , shipped orders, back orders

    Fiasco is the people panicking that the coupon and order won't get full filled and calling BlackBerry support and digital river and not getting clear answers and posting misleading information in various other threads.

    I ordered one and am waiting. I'm sorry if the word offended anyone, if there is a mod, plz edit it to smthg more appropriate.

    The VIP version never runs out of stock, with the coupon it was cheaper than the regular price, yet it didn't run out of stock. Whilst the regular priced passport did.

    Hence MY CONLUSION.

    I'm just religiously reading the threads waiting for my passport, and that's my opinion as I clearly stated.

    I hope this opinion doesn't offend people.

    Hmmm I think that the most obvious reason why it didn't run out of stock is that the VIP one is not one the main website.... you have to look for it. beside the few hundreds that saw it this weekend... I doubt that much people know about it. the proof... look at how many time people ask how to get the VIP version

    Haha "VIP" for $100 more.

    My regular Passport was in my hands at 10:15am on Thursday, September 25 and I have a hardshell case with screen protector.

    That's VIP enough for me.

    I agree completely.

    Unless you travel and need many different chargers..i see no reason to get the VIP if it's "more" expensive.

    I can get the hard shell case on amazon for way cheaper then BlackBerry is selling it for.

    You may be right. I thought the link to the VIP was more widespread.

    Seems it wasnt.

    The VIP Passport is priced at $699 in Canada, which is the same as the regular Passport for us Canadians.

    Right. If you are in the States, it really isn't worth spending the extra $100 for the VIP version. But for us in Canada, it's an obvious choice being the same price as the non-VIP version.

    Personally, I would have ordered the regular one from the US site and save the $100 if they had any in stock when I ordered but they didn't so that's why I ordered the VIP one. Whether or not it will ship is now the next question...

    Not so complicated. Few people knew about the code, fewer people knew about the vip package being available but the avsilanility of more Paddports was promoted

    But no worries, "everybody's got one"
