    I got a Passport today at the local Telus store, $700 + tax and $35 for the unlock code. Very quick and painless. Before that though, I went to the Apple store where I bought; and was going to use, the 6+. People in the store as well as the Manager couldn't believe I was returning a still sealed iPhone 6+ from last friday. It was hilarious. Store Manager at the Telus store said they sold out of the Passport shipment last week in 2 days. Got another 10 in yesterday and I bought #5 since then. They're very pleased with the sales of the Passport. I have to laugh at the people in the Apple store, they looked like their best friend just died when I handed back the 6+. It was stunned silence and disbelief, priceless!!!

    probably because you just threw away the chance to make $400 on kijiji.

    Instead of getting every penny (or loonie...or drops of maple syrup...whatever you people use in the name of currency up there ) back? He returned it at the Apple store, which means it must have been bought at full retail price.

    I bought it at full retail. Listed it briefly on Kijiji but to be honest, the markup on the 6+ is within $100 now, not worth the hassle of driving to the city, to meet someone, who will still try to nickel and dime the price down. I'm happy with the Passport. I've got an iPad, so it's no big loss not using the 6+.

    Sadly I didn't have the Passport with me when I returned the 6+. I wanted to make sure I got a full refund before forking over more money for the Passport. The reaction(s) by the staff and customers was telling though. They looked disgusted at me for returning the phone. Oh well, to each is own. I'm a BB guy, no changing that!

    In the "How have people reacted to your Passport" thread, apparently one of the guys did this exact same thing and showed off his Passport to Apple employee's and fanatic's (or "fanboi's" as they seem to be referenced here) amazement!

    These are great things to be hearing about this phone after such, it's unfortunate to say but, dismal sales of the previous BB10 cell's (And I was one who bought the Z10 day one, I'm not saying the sucked in the least, just that they were to.. similar to past phone's and forgot about the whole "innovation" part of what BlackBerry used to be (they used to be just innovation and research, feel free to look into that, interesting topic :P)).

    this would actually make a good commerical. returning an iphone with all the hipsters and soccer moms in disbelief. then walking out while swiping the passport. probbably more something Samsung would run with.

    Maybe get the iFruit license from Rockstar Games if they actually did create a copyright on that, and definitely go to the iFruit store returning the iFruit 6-
    Or iBanana? iCoconut? :P

    One thing Apple does the best though is advertise. Really wish BB wasn't non-existent in this category. Not one commercial for the Passport?? Come on.

    This X 1000. It's the biggest thing hurting them IMHO. Lack of marketing and relying on word of mouth. Not a great marketing strategy to say the least.

    Actually, they were probably more concerned about making sure the phone was in the box. In the past, there have been incidents where people went home with new iPads that turned out to have paper or something. It was a lot of bad publicity caused by somebody buying an iPad, removing it, resealing the box and returning it to the retailer

    And how would you explain away the shocked customers and rest of the staff not handling the return, chief?
