    So in my opinion Verizon has been the "nicest" to BlackBerry over the past year or two. But it's been on the quite front due mainly because of no new recent phones.

    My question is, do you guys think Verizon will continue to offer the new releases?

    I'm hoping that Verizon doesn't have any form of bad taste in their mouth after being the only U.S carrier to offer the z30 and will still keep their relationship with BlackBerry.

    On another note, what one are you guys leaning towards? While I have the q10 and the Classic looks like a nice upgrade, I've always been the one to try new types of phones, and the Passport looks interesting.

    It would be nice too see it released on all carriers, but I would think Verizon would carry it.

    For the Classic I hope it's on AT&T! If not then it's bye-bye and hello Big Red! I WANT that Classic!

    I'm intrigued by the Classic and will consider leaving my iPhone 5s for it if Verizon offers the phone.

    Business people like Verizon & BlackBerry is a business oriented device they will sell it.

    I hope that they do continue to offer BlackBerry phones. Not because I like them, but because Verizon versions of BlackBerry 10 phones are the superior global version.

    The Verizon Q10 and the Z30 are Unlocked Dual Band CDMA/GSM. They get 4G on all carriers.

    Start planning your move. I seriously doubt AT&T would Carey it since they did not even carried the Z30.

    Doesn't matter I'm sure factory unlocked will be just the same as buying it ATT except no bloatware

    So based on the fact that Chen has admitted BlackBerry is focused on business and enterprise, it would only make sense for there to be models for both Verizon and AT&T as they are the ones left with most still on BES. Now that could mean the target audience is getting 9900 and 9930 upgrades in the business sector on to Passports and Classics which could limit consumer availability. It seems the main goal is using the Passport and Classic to flip as many OS7 phones to BlackBerry 10 Devices. Clearly just my opinion. I'm just not certain consumers will see either of these phones, but believe they will use $$$ earned from their business sales to fund the next generation of consumer phones.

    Z30...for now.

    So everything I am reading points to NO PASSPORT on Verizon. Very sad. Can anyone find any glimps of hope for the passport being on Verizon?
    LillyFoxBlogs.com ? Verizon don't be a fool!..... You need to carry the Passport!

    Thanks for the links. There seems to be a general consensus that Verizon is not going to carry the BlackBerry Passport. If Verizon doesn’t sale the BlackBerry Passport, I might have to jump ship. This is why I am glad that I’m not tethered to an individual carrier (buy my devices off contract).

    AT&t will have the device (passport) , when I don't know but certainly not at launch. Verizon canceled it's variant quite some time ago. VZ will carry the Classic. Trust me I wish it was hearsay.... it's direct info sadly. your one chance is to make your voice heard by tweeting @VerizonWireless the only thing that will bring the device to VZ at this point would be heavy demand. Thanks for whoever posted my link

    Just said "out of stock" in website. I wanted to get another for my son. Got one in the spring for him but he got pushed in swimming pool with it on him. Now we can't get another one, why? In my opinion. It is the best all touch screen phone on the market.

    Just logged into our business account to check on Z30 and it doesn't appear in the device selection. Bold, Z10, and Q10 are there but no Z30.

    I've had SIX BlackBerry devices on Verizon since 2005. If they don't have the Passport, I will go to AT&T instantly and pay all the termination costs.

    It's very hard for me to believe Verizon won't have the Passport. I guess we will know in 48 hours

    It's a BlackBerry Z30 on Big Red

    Verizon employees treat me like I have a mullet and rocking a band shirt with no sleeves when I show em my blackberry.... they always try selling me on android, by far the worst educated staff in wireless. I blame Facebook for making people feel comfortable giving up their privacy... android has the worst privacy in the business.

    I agree with you completely. I love the look and the feel of the Classic, but I have two BlackBerry Q10's and I'm addicted to them. I want the passport though, what and incredible device that will be.

    I've had the majority of the Blackberry phones since my first 7100g. I currently have the Z30, and have no desire for the Passport. Too big for me. However, I want the Classic! New BB10 features including Blend, with the look and feel of my favorite 9900 series. I hope Verizon offers it as soon as it is released.

    I just tweeted Verizon and referenced how AT&T will have it first, but asked why there hasn't been any mention if Verizon will carry it. The odd thing is, that AT&T tweeted me back and told me that they will be carrying it and to stay tuned for more information. WOW, I'm not even an AT&T customer and they responded faster than Verizon did, that's lame.

    Chen himself said the Passport would be an AT&T exclusive. He didn't specify how long that exclusivity period would last but I'm thinking he meant forever. So Verizon will get the Classic to counter AT&T having Passport.
