    I know there is some sort of difference between the Verizon Z30s and the rest of them, but what are they exactly? My guess is that it has to do with size considering that the OEM Flip Shell apparently won't fit the Verizon model. I also noticed that there are different models of the Otterbox Commuter for the Verizon (and Sprint ?) versions on their website. If someone could give a straight answer and clear this up, that would be great!

    My understanding is that the Verizon z30 has wireless charging capabilities. Not sure how that translates to different cases though.

    I know that is one of the differences but it appears (from what everyone has been saying) is that there is some sort of difference in size.

    Supposedly thicker to accommodate the wireless charging mechanism.

    SQN100-1 + 10.2.1.1055 | STA100-3 + 10.2.1.1055

    And Verizon have vandalised it by putting their logo at the top (and back I think).

    The Verizon Z30 is no thicker. The Tab placement on the flip shell case is what prevents it from fitting. As far as other differences, you could go as far as mentioning Antennas/Radios, but other than that I think that's it.

    The tab placement on the Verizon Z30 is what prevents it from fitting, not the other way around. This also applies to things like battery doors. Buy a replacement battery door online that isn't Verizon branded and it will not fit on a Verizon Z30.

    Uhhh, I have a side by side picture comparison of the OEM battery door and the flip she'll case. The tabs are clearly different, in placement and shape. I'm pretty sure I can't take the battery door off the VZW Z30 and put it on a non VZW Z30. Thanks tho.

    That's exactly what I said, you can't take a non Verizon door and fit it on a Verizon Z30. Just like you can't take the flip case and fit it on a Verizon Z30.

    What is the point of what you're saying? You've only repeated what I said. I had a OEM back cover and the flip shell case, that's what I compared. If I had two different Z30's, I would have compared that too. You sound like you're disputing or discrediting what I said.

    BlackBerry missed a trick here and should have made all Z30s wireless charging. One flip case design and the opportunity to sell thousands of wireless charging accessories.

    I agree. It was one of the reasons I was planning to buy one. Until it was released it was unknown if it would be in any Z30s or if it was just a rumour.

    With no wireless charging, the same camera as my Z10, and the fact that some apps/games don't work from the Z10 to the Z30, I have decided to not buy one.

    I'm holding out hope that the mythical Z50 is real and will launch before Christmas next year and will have some updated features over the Z30.

    Although I hate branding I have to say that the Verizon logo on the front isn't too bad. It comes off looking more light grey deep in the glass them a glaring white logo.

    I don't get everyone's obsession with having branding marks. It's not that serious and on the z30 it's hardly noticed on the lcd, the back is a bit bigger but still not that serious.
