    No way, I haven't worked out in forever. I do a great bit of walking everyday though; it certainly helps me keep my girlish figure. ;-D

    That sound's completely absurd to me, but it may be that I'm just not understanding what you're trying to say. First, BlackBerry wouldn't have gone to all the trouble of developing this new, innovative phone if they didn't want to sell as many of them as possible. Yes, the primary consumers are going to be business customers, but I can't imagine that they are going to turn down sales from anyone. It may depend on how you define *many* phones.
    I believe I read recently that his goal is to get to at least 10 million phones sold annually, as a break-even point.
    Can anyone confirm that?
    Here it is. Just found it: Says BlackBerry CEO, "If we ship 10 million phones in a year, we'll be profitable on phones" | CrackBerry.com
    10 million phones would be the sum of all BB models. So, i think that is a possibility. But keep in mind that 10 million spread out throughout the world amongst all the BB models is probably defined as niche products. I am not judging this at all, it seems to me that Chen has a sound strategy to keep BB alive and thriving in its own way which is not a bad thing at all. It just does not include selling tens of millions of mass consumer phones(at least at this point of time). Apple, Google and perhaps Microsoft have the mass consumer market wrapped up at the moment.

    So can anyone say which US networks do support the unlocked Passport sold at ShopBlackBerry.com?

    I pulled this from ShopBlackBerry.com. These are the bands it supports:

    US: FD-LTE: 1,2,3,4,5,7,813,17,20
    HSPA +: 1,2,4,5/6, 8, EDGE

    I have yet to try to figure out which US carriers these correspond to.

    All of them. But probably not Voice on Verizon.


    I did see that pkcable posted on the VZW support page that he knows a guy in Canada that has seen a Verizon Branded Passport.

    Just was on the phone with AT&T. The CSR confirmed that the unlocked Passport works on all AT&T bandwidth.

    Do you think it'd be bad if I order an unlocked version from Amazon, play around with it,.. then return it if we hear anything more concrete about VZW within the 30-day return window? Not gonna lie, I'd feel pretty guilty about it, but I want to play with this thing so badly!

    Boy, that sure is customer-friendly isn't it? How do they expect the average person to use this to figure out if they want to buy the phone - sight unseen, I might add. Blackberry must be trying to figure out how much you can get the customer to do to acquire their phone. They also must not mind a lot of returns.

    Would it be safe to assume the unlocked version available now would work on T-Mobile as well?

    I am starting to fear that I will be forced away from BlackBerry. No Passport on Verizon, as we suspected because of no evidence of CDMA support.
    I'm pretty sure AT&T exclusive means no other carrier in the U.S. wanted it, or BB felt they would not sell enough through Verizon to justify the addition of a CDMA model just for that carrier. Either way, the BB partnership with Verizon may be over for the for foreseeable future.
    The thing is, my company pays for my phone and phone service. I can get whatever phone I want - as long as it is on Verizon.
    When my Z30 (which I love) is done, not sure BB will be an option for me. :-(

    jhimmel, I'm in the same boat. I'm looking at options, but I feel your pain.

    My q10 has had a rough life so far and it's on it's last legs. I'm hoping something will break in the next 30-60 days.

    Yeah,.. but I want to give it a try anyway. Plus I've been mulling switching off of VZW since I somehow bought a house in the only VZW deadzone in the area.

    I'll add my findings about how much (or little) it can do on Verizon.

    yep, i am on Sprint, and my Q10, which i love, is not big enough for my tastes. i don't want to leave BBRY, but they are rapidly pushing me in that direction

    Not sure why there was a problem the first time.
    Maybe the hamsters powering the website were taking a break from their spinning wheels.
    Anyway, my order seems to have gone through this time.
