    There's a thread on a deals Website in Canada:

    [ShopBlackBerry] Discounts on select new unlocked Blackberry phones *Up to 55% - RedFlagDeals.com Forums

    That's been trending there for many days now, and most of the chatter is about how great a deal these BB10 devices are at these prices. Anyone who bothers to chime in with anti-BlackBerry "humour" is shot down pretty quickly because it's only funny if its true, and in the opinion of most posts on the site, BB10 devices are worth serious consideration. I wonder how many CrackBerry members are participating, but the same thread a year ago would have been full of critics... it is a non-scientific look into consumer sentiment about BB10 devices.

    Media outlets can only spew the "BlackBerry is bankrupt and out of business" for so long before normal people will actually realize that bb10 phones are great phones and are a viable option as a smartphone.

    Don't overestimate the intelligence of the public. Many will believe what they read and won't seek out intelligent tech-focused media outlets with an impartial view, who will tout the impressive OS10 features. Blackberry will benefit exponentially from all the good press it can get.
    Oh I don't have blinders on. However, I honestly believe that BlackBerry has turned a corner and that people will start to say "wait a minute, haven't I been reading for 3 years that BlackBerry is bankrupt and going out of business? Maybe they are going to pull through, I should check out their phones again because my iPhone can't last longer than 8 hours. "

    But yes, a lot of people will just believe whatever is spoon fed to them. BlackBerry just has to keep coming out with great phones/services/OS updates and they cannot afford to slip. Literally everything they do has to be perfect.

    RFD tends to have BlackBerry deals posted before they are on CB. There's several RFD members who do BB10 unlocks for $15 or less.

    EBay should have a record of sales increasing. I have been shopping for another BlackBerry to possibly replace my second line android and people are snapping them up left and right!
    I'm picky and so I only buy scratch free and that's about the only thing holding me back aside from the extortion level prices on many of the phones.
