    How did you get a "US Only" promo (printed twice on the image you attached) when your signature line says "Owner of the First Z10 sold in Canada."?
    I got it yesterday and I'm in Canada just need to pay shipping

    Ha Ha Ha, touche but I never said I am super smart but thanks.
    I never said I was above anyone at all, just that I wouldn't steal things? does that make me a bad person? Um No.
    I do have an understanding of the law and so should everyone else, especially since it is such a basic thing that everyone should understand.
    What is pathetic though,are the attempts to belittle me. Rolls right off and doesn't affect me.
    You are all nameless people on a web forum. Do you honestly think I care what you do or do not think of me? Because if you do then you are mistaken. I just don't like to be called names and I will not let people get away with it.
    As for a life, yeah maybe some people need to get one.
    Happy Friday, there is a whole big world out there for you all to antagonize.
    Usually when people have to say "do you think I care what you think about me" or "I'm not mad" or "it doesn't affect me" the opposite is true. If you didn't care you wouldn't need to tell us about any of this. Wouldn't need to remind us how much you don't care because you wouldn't respond if you didn't.

    Some people really need to get better fitting panties, that way they won't bunch so much.

    This post gets the award for the most guilt-tripping to date.

    I'm not taking sides or pointing fingers.
    Just the facts!


    That's not my finger!

    Who in here has a Business Degree? I do. I know the law when it comes to promos, do you? People calling me holier than thou and then quote my signature. Well ROGERS in Canada confirmed that I was indeed the first sold and activated Z10 in Canada. so um stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
    Did you look at/comprehend the image you posted of the promo, which says "US Only" *twice* and yet you ordered something because you were able to pay extra for Canadian postage (as some other people had found out and related)? By your reasoning, you can either follow explictly what is written or follow the intention of the offer. Explicitly, you're not eligible - you're in Canada. Intentionally, you're not eligible - you didn't just buy a Z10/Q10 in order to get this promo. You have no entitlement to this offer and aren't above anyone else for ordering.

    I wasn't literally asking why the other poster was able to order in Canada. I was trying to point out his/her hypocrisy.

    Hope your order comes through, but if it doesn't, oh well... fun while it lasted.

    Maybe that is why mine got cancelled, thanks for clearing that up. But the people who exploited didn't JUST BUY their devices either. kettle.

    Was your order actually canceled or just placed on backorder?

    I honestly figured all of the "backordered" orders would eventually change to "canceled" orders, but haven't heard from anyone receiving a cancelation email yet.

    Offer worked in Canada; I got the q10 accessory package for "free" (shipping to canada was $30, so it cost me $30)

    You cant get "charged more" if you authorize bb store to take $30 from your CC or paypal or google wallet or whatever, thats what the vendor has access to, $30... they cant magically take $60 out of your account... they CAN cancel the order..

    Theft is theft. Don't be alarmed if in the end you get charged more for your items. when they catch up with orders and find out you bypassed the rules. They may feel inclined to either charge you for all the goods or make it so you only get the one accessory bundle as that all the promotion is about. It wasn't as a coupon for $120, that is what people figured out they could do which in essence is violating the promotion.

    Called up the help line on the site, gave them some info and they agreed that while what others did is wrong, some orders are going to be cancelled and some are going to be billed. They offered me a free accessory bundle for bringing it to their attention. I'll have it Tuesday thanks to them offering free express shipping. Have a Nice Weekend. Truth and Honesty will always prevail...

    So after you preceived your order was "canceled" (due to not following the terms of the promo, by your very own "standards"), you got "honest"...

    None of that happened.

    Playbookguy: Hey BlackBerry we have some crooks online stealing from your promotion

    BlackBerry: Did you log the IP addresses?

    Playbookguy: I did, I'm faxing them over now, I also backtraced it.

    BlackBerry: They dun goofed, now we know who's doin it

    Playbookguy: Can you assure me consequences will never be the same?

    BlackBerry: They have indeed been reported to the cyber police

    Playbookguy: I'll let them know I now have 3rd party verification that I'm very smart and that police will soon be knocking down doors and confiscating Z10 chargers.

    BlackBerry: Have a complimentary accessory bundle
