    Ill wait until my contract is up in August and see which carrier has the best plan and then get a phone for that carrier.

    Hopefully they'll have plans like or better than koodo's $60 promo plan. https://shop.koodomobile.com/plans/plans/index.html
    It gets better tomorrow. Unlimited nationwide and 2GB for $60.
    Koodo to release new promo plans tomorrow, will double up on minutes and data | MobileSyrup.com

    i'll probably buy a L-series full price up front and use my hardware upgrade to get my N-series.

    I am probably going to skip. Its not that much of an advance for me to drop $6-700 on. When I do get my next one, it will not be on contract as I intend to switch carriers and go month to month on whoever I am with at that point. By that point the Aristo should be out as my contract is up in August. That and I am holding out hope for a BB11 N-Series that doesn't look like crap.

    I'll pay off the device balance on my 9900 (~$200) and sell on craigslist for maybe $150-250. Then buy the L-Series BB10 on a 3 year contract.

    L-Series off contract at launch, and N-Series off contract at launch... call me greedy, but ive been waiting forever for these phones like the rest of you and cannot wait to have an L-series in my right hand and an N-Series in my left! Also going to buy up some shares, because the latest estimates are rimm shares (if everyone like BB10) will spike to 43$ in a very short period of time off launch... and 4:1 odds are just too good to pass up!

    I haven't been on a contract with a carrier in at least 6 years. I fully intend and plan on buying at least 1 device at full price.
    This is normal for me.

    Not the best plan out there in my opinion. T-Mobile, unlimited everything 4G speed for $70.00 ($74.00 with taxes.no contract).
    That's a good deal with t-mobiles current plan setup but I wonder could the savings increase with adding metro pcs plans. That makes it more of a likelihood that I pay for a phone out right.

    kind of makes me glad we have no contracts here in Pakistan. Makes the decision a whole lot simpler. Getting one the day it becomes available here.

    I'll buy L n N serries with No Contract. But actually, in my country, we have to pay full price, because there is no contract for Blackberry or other phones Expensive but needed.

    Always off contract. I will pass off my 9860 and convert another person to BB. It's a win win.

    I would pay full price but I am taking the wait and see approach before I purchase one.

    I'm stuck on 9900 until February 2014 (my next subsidized hardware upgrade). I don't think I can afford to straight-up buy a BB10 device. But I'm thinking about unloading some medium format camera equipment to fund the purchase

    I will be buying off contract. I do not want my contract to get renewed. I almost want to get a second line just so i can get both the full touch and qwerty.

    I'm planning on buying off-contract to keep my Verizon unlimited data... Right now I'm paying $80/month. Would be less but the other person on my plan kept downgrading our minutes, then when I had to re-upgrade the minutes when she went over, the new rate for minutes was always a little bit higher than before.

    My contract is up in May... really thinking about my options at that point. Could switch to T-Mobile, I live in Atlanta and I hear T-Mobile is okay there... I've just grown very accustomed to Verizon's network, where I can just assume that I'll have service pretty much everywhere.

    Being with a company that doesn't have locked in terms I can buy at any time, a small price to pay for having unlimited everything for $40 P/M. Having said that I'll probably hold off buying one right away. I'm just not ready to switch yet and am getting stirling service from my 9900 and 9790.

    It's not gonna be that easy to unlock bb10 devices to take it from one network to the next. That's gonna allow the carriers to have more leverage and put a damper on the grey market. Factory unlocked devices will be sold just the same.

    I have an upgrade that I have had available since a year ago. not using it. I am paying retail to keep verizons grubby claws off my unlimited data.

    Same here: my poor Curve has been creaking along for a year now during the wait for BB10. I'm not a huge data user, but I'd rather keep my unlimited plan for as long as I can until they find some kind of slick way to take it away. Plus with a much improved browser and LTE bridging to the PlayBook is going to get a lot more use! N series all the way for me.

    If possible, I'd even see if I could swing some kind of BYOD and dump the Torch as well.
