    I ended up with the best of both worlds... Getting the Z30 for $199... I will replace my screen for about $100 or so and hopefully I will have 2 Z30's in my fleet..
    Wow, you are a "collector" with deep pocket.

    Well I have to tip my hat to Verizon...They made the decision easy for me..... They were super nice and sold me a new Z30 for $199. They did not have it in stock and will overnight it to me on Monday. They had the Z10 in stock and were going to give it to me for $50...I did like the feel of the Z10 and almost pulled the trigger, but for the $199 I went for the Z30.

    I know we had a lot of complaints about carriers not supporting Blackberry but this was not the case at this location. The women I dealt with was very familiar with the phones and spoke highly of Blackberry. They had the Q10 and the Z30 on the showroom floor but not the Z10. She had the Q10 and Z10 in stock. She said the Z30 was selling very well and they were having trouble getting them from Blackberry. She went on to say that the Z10 was selling well until the Z30 came out (which makes sense) and that the Q10 was not moving at all and they were trying to unload their inventory. She didn't for one second try to sway me and go for an iPhone or Android... Those words were not even spoken.

    I wish that they had the Z10 on display and had a little inventory of the Z30 on hand, but overall it was a pro-Blackberry transaction...

    I live in the greater Boston area and she said that many business people are still loyal to Blackberry and Verizon plans on expanding the line as the phones become available.
    This is good to hear and certainly encouraging. Of course BB is not going to overtake Apple or Samsung any time soon, but at least they understand that the brand does have a place in the market. Hopefully at&t will follow suit soon.

    Anyway, glad you ended up with a satisfactory outcome and got to stay with a Z30 without having to give up vital organs for it.

    You could look at getting a screen and changing it yourself. I did a few times with broken 9900s & 9780s a few times making one out of two

    You're a better man than I. I totally trashed my 9900 trying to replace a screen. It at least worked before I took it apart; no such luck after I got it back together. Broke. Dead. RIP.
