    Thinking of picking up the PRIV at the AT&T store since the wait is so long from ShopBlackBerry!

    My question is,,,
    Will it be the same model of the phone as I would normally get from the factory unlocked ShopBlackBerry if I get it at AT&T?

    So basically all I would have to do if buying the phone from AT&T, would be to buy it at full retail and then unlock it. Would it basically then be the same exact thing as if I would have bought it through ShopBlackBerry?

    Just looking for someone who might have those details...
    And also is the full retail at AT&T the same $700 as on ShopBlackBerry?

    Same model, yes. STV100-1.

    AT&T's price is $740 no term/$250 two year contract. It comes with AT&T bloatware though.

    Another option is B&H Photo and Video, a New York seller that charges sales tax to New York residents. Same $700 price as ShopBB: BlackBerry PRIV STV100-1 32GB Smartphone STV100-1 B&H Photo

    Some are reporting that the AT&T version does not in fact have wireless charging like the shopBB version does.

    Weird. According to the manual, the -1, -2 and -5 models have it. Do you have a link for where buyers are saying that it doesn't have it?

    I was partly to blame as one source of incorrect information. My AT&T Business Rep had said that it (the AT&T Priv) would NOT have wireless charging. Well, I picked my STV100-1 up at the store today and placed it on my Qi charger and, BAM, it started charging. I have educated the Rep and updated my original post on CB.

    Since this forum is about the Priv & AT&T, I think it is appropriate to mention that the AT&T Store actually had a nice big poster up about the Priv and a working unit on display.

    It took the store employee a minute to find it and then another few minutes to see if they had them in stock (they had 2) but overall, everything was good with the store experience. I showed the display unit to another customer looking at Android's and when I opened the Priv to reveal the keyboard, he really liked that.

    The att version does in fact have wireless charging.

    Bloateware is also surprisingly down to 10 apps, in other devices they have had up to 25 if I recall correctly

    I picked up my brand new Priv. From ATT 1st thing yesterday am. It's mostly awesome. Haven't had much time to play/explore yet with a job, house, and family BUT I can attest that WIRELESS CHARGING DOES work with it and my new GMC which came with wireless charging mat in its console. Ps I'm from Long Island NY. I will be back...

    Are you an AT&T account holder, cause I'm not sure I can buy the phone at full retail at the store if I'm not ATT customer?

    Pigs will fly before a store will sell a non-customer a phone off-contract. Online was the way to go--the loophole, if you will--but AT&T may have closed that too for non-customers.
