    I've been looking for a Z30, and I spent an hour today trolling around the five mobile phone stores in our local mall. There's a Fido and a Bell, a Source, and a Wind Mobile and another store that sells a number of different phone plans.

    Only the Bell store now carries the Z30. Fido carries only the Q5, Wind and the other general store don't carry any BB phones, and the Source thought he might have a BB7 phone somewhere. Fido tried to sell me an iPhone, but I told the sales assistant exactly what I thought of them and left rather quickly.

    I was absolutely horrified by the lack of support for our iconic Canadian mobile phone company from these other businesses. In fact, one of them told me outright that Blackberry wasn't doing phones any more, they were dead. Of course, because I was looking specifically for a Z30, I didn't give any of the stores my business, but how can Blackberry survive against this kind of misinformation and downright couldn't-care attitude from the carriers?

    It was an unfortunate choice of stores. Only Bell and Telus ever carried Z30 in stores and Rogers did by special order only. Even their subsidiaries (Virgin Canada, Koodo, and Fido, respectively) did not carry Z30. Source might have at some locations since they are Bell dealer, but I'm not sure.

    When I picked up my Z30 from Best Buy, it was literally the only one in stock. Lucky for me it was a Telus unit.

    Just visit a corporate Bell or Telus store, or special order via Rogers. As of today, all three of them have the Z30 for free with a new activation or renewal.

    I was happy, and maybe a little surprised, to see a working Z30 displayed along side all the other phones in my local Verizon store in Long Island, NY.

    When anyone says "BlackBerry is dead" just ask them what's the source of their information.
    then ask them to Google BlackBerry's latest earnings call... a dead company can't have an earnings call, can't be listed on the stock exchange, etc, etc... they will get the picture.
    And leave without arguing.
