    Available in Germany... Where do you live? Check out the business site, not the private/particular/coonsumers site of T-Mobile... Remember John Chen's saying, they target prosumers not consumers from now on!
    I bought my Q10 in Germany as a consumer, the employee filled up a form and named me "1-person-business-company" and no problem with buying it.

    I did not think of that, hmmm good question. As a BlackBerry customer I wanted to send a simple message. I do feel T-MOBILE will continue to carry BB10 devices but there are those out there that have started to spin this negatively. So I decided to asked T-Mobile that simple question "you got my back"? If they reply really cool.

    I asked them about the Z30 on Twitter a few days ago. They didn't know about it. They responded to the wrong tweet but it was in reference to the Z30.

    It's a shame because they are now the most attractive carrier when weighing both costs and coverage. Hope Mr. Legere changes his mind soon!

    No I am not saying they should carry BlackBerry devices. As I stated above I purchased the Z30 and will make the switch to T-Moblile. After the new flash yesterday,

    [Updated] T-Mobile USA No Longer Sells BlackBerry 10 Smartphones Publicly - N4BB

    I tweeted T-Mobile hopeing for an official statement and some clarity on their relationship with BlackBerry, hence the question " You got my back"?

    Was it brand new and unwrapped? I've read stories of people who get them from GSM nation but the phones appear used or at least opened..

    I ordered it on Tuesday got it on Thursday brand new and yes it was wrapped. No complaints and would recommend GSM Nation to anyone waiting for their carrier to carry the Z30. I will post my review here after I have spent some time with it. So far loving it. The looks, feel and operating system sweet.

    It is $609 for the STA100-5 version at GSM nation. There is a link above to their site and you can check compatibility.

    BlackBerry needs to sell them on their site for cheaper than this. GSM Nation starts high and will likely drop when AT&T releases, which I don't blame them, but BlackBerry shouldn't be waiting for the carriers. I'm wondering g if they did truly grant Verizon an exclusive 90 day deal and if so then BlackBerry made a stupid decision because Verizon isn't doing anything with that exclusivity.

    BlackBerry sales are down because the devices are not being pushed by the carriers. They need a game changer.
    1. Sell their devices from their website.
    2. Open BlackBerry stores, testing the major markets in the US offering sales and technical support.

    Consumers could walk-in and purchase a phone that is compatible with their carrier, buy a case, screen protector or fix an issue they have with their phone. IMO this would be a big hit. Just the iconic Brand name alone would generate traffic.

    Finding the Z30 was a task. Finding the Z30 which was compatible with my carrier was an even larger task. I am a big fan of the Z30 and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for premium touch screen device. I will not comment on all the things this baby can do but just the HDMI out alone sets the Z30 in a class by itself.

    I would love a BlackBerry store, but at this point, I don't think it would be a good idea. Only Apple has major retail stores, and that's because not only are all their products popular, they have a huge array of products. In the U.S., BlackBerry has a few phones. Q10, Z10, and Z30 (available to Verizon only).

    Google is supposedly working on stores of their own, but again, they have phones, tablets, Chromebooks, etc. The BlackBerry brand pretty much means nothing to regular consumers right now, so the only people going in would be people who frequent these forums. There might be some curiosity on the part of others, as in, "What the he1l could BlackBerry possibly be selling in a store of their own...?" It would be the same kind of attitude I have when I go see the new iPhone in Apple stores. I know for a fact I'm not going to buy one, I'm just going to see what it's about. It doesn't translate into business for Apple.

    BlackBerry isn't trying to get regular consumers anymore. They should use their resources to hammer large corporations and government entities to switch to BlackBerry 10 and get them on BES10. That way, BlackBerry could thrive in one major market instead of struggling to win regular consumers and lose ground to Apple and Google in the enterprise space. That way, they'd continue to make phones, high end ones, for us diehard regular consumers to buy from them directly. Or GSM Nation haha.

    BlackBerry should offer all of their phones, unlocked, online from their website.
    And possibly, open up kiosks to sell their phones in high traffic areas. Stores are not needed, unless required, like in an airport that doesn't allow kiosks.
