    Like the title says, believe it or not I just had a GREAT experience at Verizon Wireless with respect to purchasing a BlackBerry Z10. I have a Q10, but the full retail price of the Z10 has dropped to $299 so figured why not just snatch one up. I went in and talked to the representative and he made no attempt to talk me out of BlackBerry, which did happen when I bought my Q10. He told me he actually really like his Z10 when he had it as his work phone and that he's looking forward to the Z30. I asked what he carries now and he said a WP for work and SG4 for personal, but said he would recommend BlackBerry based on the needs of the customer. After a bit of banter he agreed that the Z10 could actually meet any customers needs unless they were insistent upon the iPhone because of cloud utilization with other family members or devices in the house. Was nice to actually hear someone at the store actually say something nice about BlackBerry...

    Is the $299 price for an outright purchase? Could I simply pick one up for that price,or would it include a contract of some sort?

    I believe that's full retail. If you want one in contract, there's a couple places you can go where you get a $50 credit/giftcard to where you walk out with a new phone and $50 dollars richer.

    I'm a T-Mobile customer but upon visiting Verizon for a case for my Q back in July (of which they hadn't started carrying it yet) all of the reps wanted to touch and hold my Q. Of the 4 employees 2 of them planned on purchasing it when they had it available. Strangely Verizon is the only carrier I've heard good things regarding Berry.

    That's cool. Unfortunately over here in the Pacific Northwest, Verizon doesn't even have Blackberries on the floor. They were shocked when I brought my Q10 in to activate. I got all the typical, "why not android?" questions, and Keyboard was my answer :P Plus the fact that I came from Palm (Yes, the only reason why I have a BlackBerry now is because my trusty Pre2 kicked the bucket) and BlackBerry has some of the best multitasking abilities on the market. And since I'm a power user once I get thoroughly acquainted with my device, I needed something that will last all day and keep up with me, as well as have a full keyboard. Gotta have that clickity :P Virtuals just don't cut it for me. I can't type nearly fast enough in a virtual to be satiated. So, you guys now have a loyal (Palm and) BlackBerry fan on your hands.

    On Verizon that must be full retail. On contract The Z10 is free.

    Yep, $299 is full retail price off contract. The Z10 is free with a 2 year contract if you're eligible.

    Now that the prices are lower, BlackBerry should advertise again...

    Gotta be honest, I type much faster on the Z10...seriously. Make a few mistakes but the predictive text and swiping is super fast
