    Too bad they aren't offering the Z30, now that decision really stings.

    F T-moble! The CEO doesn't respect BlackBerry users so why should you why you even choose to go with them!?

    Enjoy being stuck on 10.1 forever

    This isn't a 'special deal' for BlackBerry. This is the exact same as their previous mailing only now they are giving out $200 for handing in an old BlackBerry and adding $50 if you get a new BlackBerry. Who in their right mind will be getting a Z10? The phone is dated. This ad would have worked if Z30 was available but it's not. Only die hard keyboard/BlackBerry fans will buy the Q10. All the rest will use the credit to get a non-BlackBerry phone.


    It's the exact same ad only now people are distracted by the numbers. BlackBerry users who were holding on to their phone because the iPhone or a particular Android phone was too expensive have the perfect incentive to switch over now.


    T-mobile just put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig.

    This is a slap in the face to Blackberry. T-Mobile knows that the bulk of its Blackberry users will upgrade to another device. Furthermore, since this deal extends to Blackberry users from other carriers as well, this will have an adverse impact on the remaining US Blackberry userbase.

    I'm honestly surprised T-Mobile will spend the money for this promotion over a silly feud; but, it will probably generate publicity for them. John Chen, your move.

    BlackBerry should match this offer for $250 trade in on an unlocked Z30 that will work on T-Mobile's network! And state that they will receive direct updates when available from BlackBerry.

    Yup. With the added benefit (from T-Mo/Legere's point of view) that it would help drain their limited supply of BB10 devices, which conveniently won't be restocked when they're gone. The deal will still be in effect, but there won't be any BB10 devices at all to choose from.

    Whoever wanted to go to another platform would've done it regardless, this deal just expedited the process, same goes for whoever wanted to upgrade to bb10 but were hesitant about the prices.

    Don't forget the deal only mentions in store trades and purchases and guess what phones T-Mobile doesn't carry. Additionally, if they opened it up to online sales, right now only BlackBerry 10 devices are in corporate sales.

    This is snake like offer

    This is such a stupid offer, in fact it would entice customers to service to NON-BlackBerry phones since they are getting $200 to trade in their bbos.. a $50 additional bucks so what. That is nothing.

    BlackBerry totally got owned.

    Sorry but, I'm gonna have to ask, how many T mobile sales reps are gonna tell people they don't have any BlackBerrys in stock but you can have the iPhone. Apology not accepted.

    At this point BlackBerry should be selling all BlackBerry 10 smartphones in an unlocked state (and hopefully soon tablets) via their website avoiding wireless carriers. Users can buy their SIM/mic ro-SIM card from any carrier of their choosing after the purchase. This applies to all markets around the world. Maybe BlackBerry would price their smartphones more realistically as well.

    BBRY would lose a ton of sales if they did that. Joe Consumer doesn't want to be bothered with having to order their phones, wait for it to arrive, then go to a carrier. Most consumers just want to go to a store, play with a few devices, pick one, and walk out of the store with a shiny new device.

    Power users that have the wherewithal or patience to wait a week or two to special order their devices probably account for 0.01% of the smartphone buying market.
