    Looks like Verizon just dropped the on contract price of the z30 to $99 I am tempted to upgrade, but I also am curious if I should wait for the next device. My Z10 is working fine, but the battery life is what it is. I also got an email stating that they would give me $100 on a trade in for the Z10.

    If youre ok with the contract extension then I would say absolutely. Its a highly superior phone and if you can get it for $99 or free with the Z10 trade in then theres really no reason not to. Youll love the Z30.

    IF you have an unlimited data plan, and you choose/desire to keep it, your only choice is an outright purchase to keep said plan. I had to do a dance with VZW because I got a Z30 for the Holidays, and they tried everything to get me out of it. Still dickering with unlimited SMS to be put back and all is gold.


    Go for the Z30. You won't look back....

    I just transferred from AT&T to get the darn thing! Paying the penalty to AT&T for early termination. (Will probably get most of it back when I sell the Z10)
    Can't wait for delivery on Wednesday!!!

    Interestingly we upgraded my wife's iPhone last month and she still has unlimited data somehow, even though they said she would loose it. Also sadly I tried out an s4 for about 3 days and returned it, but I was able to keep my unlimited data that time as well.

    My only gripes with the Z30 are that the back isn't rubber like the Z10, I like how it doesn't slide around when I put it down. The size doesn't seem like it would bother me either, the S4 was too much for me and I kept palming the side of the screen, I don't see myself having that issue with the Z30

    Just thought about something, I still have my bold 9930, the promotion says that they will give $100 for any smartphone, I should swap that then I can keep my z

    Good luck with that. Read my story in the Verizon forum.

    Got my Z30 had to switch to edge to get the $100 credit, but my bill is the same, I'm on the 10gb plan, which is more than enough data for my wife and I, we get hot spot now as well. I had to pay $50 upfront since they didn't have any in stock, just returned my 9930 and got $100 credited to my account. So in the end I think it's a win.

    I am liking this phone

    That's exactly what I did, I had an old BB Pearl sitting in my desk, I traded that and got the Z30 and kept the Z10, I can't tell you how much I love the Z30
    I kept going in to Verizon almost every weekend, and I couldn't take it anymore, specially with the new Edge plan, I just couldn't resist.

    I switched from the Z10 to the Z30, and I'm very happy I did! The back is a bit rubbery, just like the Q10's back. The Z10 black version is more rubbery, but the white Z10 back is actually very slick in my hands. I really like the bigger battery and screen on the Z30. I really think the Z30 has a more premium feel, and the screen is absolutely gorgeous! You won't regret swapping the Z10 for the Z30!

    I am in the same scenario. I am out of contract and want to get the Z30 but also want to wait and see what BlackBerry releases this year. The prices on the Z30 is still high. 399 if you pay full price per Verizon website. I would pay 299 or less but nothing more. Also the Q10 is priced the same way at Verizon. I would get that as well if price came down. I am currently using a Z10. I will probably wait it out but I like to try new toys!

    So, who has solved the problem of the Verizon Z30 having an older operating system (10.2.0 as opposed to 10.2.1 in the Z10). BlackBerry Link stops cold when it sees this. Also, when I visited a Verizon store with my WTF, they cheerfully fired up their little machine and moved the names, phones and emails, but no mug shots and no notes. And now I find, not all of the 3200 odd records either. Am I missing something here?

    i kinda of disagree with most of you about the screen. i find that the z10 screen is brighter and the colors are more vibrant. It's not that big of a difference, but there is one

    I actually think the Z30 screen is much better. I have to slide the brightness all the way down, otherwise it's too bright, same as with the Q10. With the Z10 I couldn't put the brightness too low, otherwise it was way too dark. I know on paper the resolution of the Z30 is not as high as the Z10's, but I don't see any pixels or pentile distortion.

    The only thing I'm missing right now is all the EA games that I got on my Z10, most don't show up in BBW for the Z30. Android performance is much better, and battery is ridiculously better.
