    This is just classic. I'm in Las Vegas at the moment so me and the wife are browsing some of the shops earlier today. I walked into an electronic store and I'm just browsing their phone case selection, nothing but Samsung and iPhone around these parts!

    So the guy comes over and asked if I needed a hand finding a case for my iPhone. Forgetting where I am for a second (not Canada . I politely say no thanks, I don't have an iPhone. So he says "Oh what kind of phone do you have?" Secretly wanting to show off my white Z30 , I have a Z30. Que the blank stair. "What's a Z30?" So I pull out my phone and hand it to him. The second he looks and sees the logo on the back and that it says BlackBerry on the bottom in the front, he says "Wo this is a BlackBerry?!"

    I proceed with a yup and it's a fantastic phone. So then I tell him a little more about the Z30 that we all know and love. 2 day battery life, Android Runtime, the hub etc etc. As he's swiping and looking at the phone he look at me and says, I'll give you $120 for it right now! I look back at him and laugh, then I reply with hells no! Then he starts on the oh it can't be worth that much, it's a BlackBerry stuff. I simply said if you want it, it will cost you $499 as that's the unlocked price.... I'm happy to say I still have my Z30!

    Look! It's Zedzilla 30!

    You should just have made an offer for $49 for the iPhone 6.

    When he asked why that little, you should have said "I value the Z30 $100 more than the iPhone and you just set the price! "

    He was just giving you a low-ball offer. After playing with the Z30 he knew it was worth a lot more.

    Wanted to trade in my z30 for the passport. The shop is only offering 100 for it here, was hoping at least 200 for a phone that's only a year old and the shop itself is still selling it for 400


    Z30 Pooooooooower!

    That is a great way to keep the Canada-USA relations on a friendly level.
    "I got it and you don't" LoL
    That is common for people who see too many different phones and think they are all cheap.
    People mistake my Z10 for an iPhone all the time. When I tell them it is a BlackBerry they either shrug a shoulder..(.too young to remember BlackBerry, I guess)....or they say why?
    I tell them, because it just works.

    It's nice to be part of an 'exclusive' club!

    Quite honestly, you should have told him the actual price its at right now, which is $299 and told him where he could get it. This would probably enticed him more. $120 is a low but you sound just like that guy when you said $499 to him.

    It's not if you have a cdma z30. Shop BlackBerry versions are useless to those of us who do. Still 499 from vzw.

    I through out the $499 price because I know I didn't want to sell and he would never buy at that price.

    Down here I've never seen so many iPhone and Android phones in my life, it's absolutely absurd. But while site seeing all day and then going out at night, all I kept hearing was, oh man my battery just died or **** I ran out of space on my iPhone. I had a little smile on my face ever time because my Z30 was taking photos and videos of Las Vegas from moring till night with ample battery for anything else I threw at it.

    And now that I learnt how to place the iris for taking pictures. My night shots were amazing!

    He didn't even know about the Z30 why even attempt to offer a discounted price?

    I wouldn't exactly call that throwing around their money. Lol

    I wouldn't say that it's because I'm a Crackberrian. If he would have at the very least gone up to the $250 US mark, negotiations would have gotten serious. But at $120 US, not even worth my time to go back to the hotel room to back my phone up!

    People wouldn't be low balling if they knew how good the Z30 worked. I suspect this individual making me the offer, knew enough about BB10 to make a profit either by selling it in his shop or shipping the phone over seas for sale. Either way wasn't going to be my white beauty!

    Lol....it was on the strip within the Venetian. I think the store was called The Source electronics. Not to be mistaken with The Source stores in Canada.

    Buddy at the counter had an pretty thick accent. Come to think of it, every electronics counter or store I hit in Las Vegas had someone who had to have recently fallen off the boat! Some very well spoken others, not so much.
