    Yeah, pretty much. I thought they might still have the Dtek50 in stores, maybe one or two sitting in the back, but they don't really sell them.

    Priv is over a year old. Well past it's 'shelf life' at most stores. They only have the DETK50 - https://www.freedommobile.ca/plans-a...ckberry-dtek50

    They seem to be running the DTEK50 out but if you ask at any corporate store they can order one in for you while stock is available. They never carried the DTEK60.

    TBH with you, WIND/Freedom have a tendency to over price their devices to beyond that of MSRP especially BlackBerrys for some reason. They're selling the DTEK50 for $20 over the MSRP and will also charge you $30+ if want to unlock your device (this is claimed to be an admin fee as they suggest they don't charge for the actual unlock code). If your friend's looking to buy a new device outright, I would strongly recommend buying the device unlocked from Shop BlackBerry where both the 50 & 60 are on sale, or from Amazon where you can pick up the devices unlocked pretty 'cheaply' too.

    DTEK50: Most Secure Android Smartphone – DTEK50

    DTEK60: Most Secure Android Smartphone – DTEK60


    Just as a couple of examples of how bad WIND's pricing can be with BlackBerry, they were charging $399 for the Leap at a time everyone else had it pegged at $279, including Shop BlackBerry. The Priv started off at $50 over MSRP but WIND kept it at $899 even as the price went down elsewhere. It's odd, because when they started out, CEO Tony Lacavera swore WIND would never make money on hardware, just break even and for a while there they were the cheapest place in Canada to buy new hardware.

    I tell people about ca.shopblackberry.com to get the devices if they aren't in stores anymore. Freedom mobile (then wind) doesn't even mind that, because it makes the most sense.

    Just checked Freedom page and DTEK50 has been pulled. I.e. Not out of stock sign just gone. Does this mean KeyOne or......?

    Love my PPSE - trade it for KeyOne?

    Well Freedom say it's still for sale but can tell me why the photo of the phone on their website is of the back of the phone?

    Well it seems something is going on, they had dtek50, then it was on the website but not in stock, then the photo of the phone was reversed, now there is no Blackberry at all. I think they might be done.

    KeyOne likely won't be happening because it doesn't have Band 66. That also means we won't be getting VoWiFi since it has to be on a Freedom sold device (for now anyways).

    Neither the KEYone nor any older model has Band 66, so don't expect anything from Freedom anytime soon.

    Yup I don't think this device is included in their business model. Oh well. Now if I could only find a place I could buy the K1 as I am with Freedom and would like a Canadian K1
