    Q10 price to be dropped when Z30 launches.

    2 year contract prices on VZW:
    Z10: Free
    Q10: $149.99
    Z30: $ 199.99

    Full Retail:
    Z10: $249.99
    Q10: $399.99
    Z30: $549.99
    Well, the Z30 is out but the prices haven't dropped on the Q10 or Z10. Anybody have more info about this possibility?

    I just left a Verizon store in Lawrenceville, NJ and they have the Z30. However, the sales agent said don't waste your time buying it. He also said don't consider a Windows phone either. Was 100% pushing Android and Samsung. No wonder things are the way they are.

    Yes, they will sell it unlocked. They're pretty much required to do that with any LTE band 13 phone (which this one is.) Just know that if you're planning to use it on TMO, you'll get LTE, but 3G/HSPA+ only in the places TMO has a 1900 MHz refarmed network. Otherwise you'll drop down to 2G.
    Thanks for the info man, don't think I'm not willing to compromise on 2G speeds all the time. Its painfully slow

    I think you should double check first, I am not 100% sure their phones come unlocked like that. Regardless of bands.

    Hey, gotta disagree. Currently the Z30 is direct ship only in the United States. You can only order the phone. The Lawrenceville, NJ store is the 3rd biggest corporate retail VZW store in the US. They will absolutely be one of the first to get it, but currently they only have a demo unit. I was there today and they happily offered to order the phone for me. They said the earliest it will be available anywhere would be the 21st and their *opinion* was it won't be sold in stores at all unless there is heavy online demand. They were quick to blame BlackBerry though stating that VZW has warehouses they order from and every warehouse has a "0" quantity listed so the orders are being filled by BlackBerry through VZW channels. I don't even know how to decipher that. Bottomline is from East as Philly to West as Seattle there is not a single Z30 in a Verizon store. If you want it, got to order it online for at least now.

    The Z10 prices have dropped and reflect my earlier post. The Q10 price will drop most likely this Thursday the 21st one week post Z30 launch. It is possible the info I got was wrong and the Q10 price will not drop. It's pretty reliable sourced info though, but again can't always be right. If I was wrong, sorry to mislead. Not intentional, I assure you of that.

    I was at a small Vzw store in a mall in NJ yesterday and they had the Z30 on the shelves. Got to play with it a bit.

    Unfortunately they only have a demo. Z30 is online available only right now. Will be sold through all channels eventually but not in stores yet for sale.

    According to the Verizon website this evening, the Z10 is still $299 and the Q10 is $549. No drop in the past month.

    Like I said, I'm not always right. That's what I was quoted. This person has never been wrong til now, they also said the Z30 will land in a few stores beginning tomorrow. Currently any store who has had a customer order one at the store will be shipped a few phones. I guess the thought process is to only stock the stores where sales are being made. Other than a few stores it will continue to be direct to fulfillment only.
