    Just curious, how many here would consider buying the AT&T version at full retail when it comes out? I've seen the square version on sale at ShopBB and Amazon, but I doubt that there will be any discount from AT&T considering its exclusivity.

    If the unlocked version was not available in the US or if it didn't work on AT&T then I would buy their version.

    As it stands I'd still buy the unlocked one as it's $50 less (that's a free case or 2 or 3) and it does not have the death star logo on the back..

    I am returning my Passport to buy the redesign off contract from AT&T, they are my carrier and I love the redesign and have no issues paying $150 more than what I paid for this Passport during the Black Friday sale since I've recouped this cash by selling my iPhone 5S last year.

    I will go with the AT&T version. It's unusual for a carrier to ask for a body redesign and I doubt it was just for aesthetic reasons. It's possible they had some engineers give it a good going-over and found some things they didn't like about the square screens. Time will tell if one version has more problems than the other.

    The AT&T version in white would be hot.

    Completely false, misinformed speculation. The Torch was something that ATT asked for and Blaze just gave several examples of Carrier asked for phones.....from BB.

    Again, time will tell. Screen issues, anyone?

    I don't have any screen issues and I highly doubt AT&T had their engineers look over a Passport. More than likely they wanted the rounded corners so it more mainstream and softer looking.

    I don't really need to give ATT any more money then they are already squeezing out of me.
    I will just remind ATT that I am off contract next month so they can drop my bill by $15 so that I am no longer paying the subsidized phone which is now gone.

    Yeah they missed out on me and my family switching over when they had the chance. Since they wanted a rounded version and made people wait for almost 5months now it will probably blow up in their face and the blame will be thrown BlackBerrys way. Sorry didn't mean to rant.

    The square screen isn't changing. The other specs aren't changing either. The big change really is the shape. AT&T didn't like the squared edges.
