    ...and, instead, trying to steer people to the iPhone. One store did try to guide me away from the BlackBerry until I told them I didn't want Apple or Android. Verizon has some obligations to meet with Apple.

    IPhone sales shortfall could leave Verizon owing Apple $14 billion - latimes.com

    "Because of slower-than-expected sales, Verizon now must double its iPhone sales of last year. If it falls short, the company could be on the hook for as much as $14 billion, Moffett Research said in a report released this week."

    That's crazy! Sounds like a mess VZW got themselves into and they shouldn't be trying to talk their customers out of the devices that they want in order to cover their own bums. This is the perfect example of putting all of one's eggs in one basket!

    That's the reason I don't want Verizon coming to Canada (buy out Wind Mobile). If they focus on iPhone only, please don't come to Canada messing up BlackBerry.

    You'd be suprised at how evil Verizon can be. You don't want them coming into Canada.

    Yah.... when I read this, I could not help but wonder how many similar "deals" iPhone may be having worldwide.

    For Apple, smart business. BBRY should cut deals with T-Mobile and Sprint.

    When the Z10 first came out, saw all kinds of Verizon commercials pushing it. If they're not pushing BB now, my guess is because they weren't selling.

    I saw this a day or two ago. Something doesn't seem quite right about it, but I can't prove differently.

    With all that said, VZW pushes the heck out of S3-S4 whenever I'm in one of their stores.

    I don't buy apple phones but damn they are savvy. Getting paid because sales are FALLING. Lol BlackBerry needs that kind of savvy.
