Sprint's Executive Complaint department informed me today they have no (current) plan to release this AWESOME device. If Sprint doesn't carry this, I am taking my main 6 lines to a carrier who does. Don't MAKE me hate you SPRINT!
Post on this thread if you want the z10 and call Sprint to ask for the Chairman's Office to complain.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yeah, I'd really like the z10 too and i'll probably jump ship when it's available elsewhere.
I was thinking about leaving Sprint for a while anyways because of the God-awful data speeds (what good is unlimited data when I can barely stand to use it?). I bought a wimax phone the week that the wimax 4g service started in my town and had it for about 8 months. While the speeds were better, I hated the phone (HTC EVO 4G) and the other wimax enabled phones did not interest me.
Yea come on Sprint. Im sure hoping to see yall bring out the new Blackberry. I've been with you guys since almost 20 years. Well had the same # anyway. Satrted with Nextel and got rolled to Sprint. I dont want to leave, but I will. Im ready to bring my wifes service back to Sprint. Only if you get the new Blackberry though.
Totally looking forward to getting my hands on the new Blackberry Z10 and Playbook for OS10, like has been said,, with Sprint would be the best solution but with or without Sprint, I will have them.
I can't understand how Sprint would be so in love with the iPhone, after all, Sprint was LOCKED OUT of the iPhone by their competitor for how many years???
Best of luck to us.
Placed my order today with Verizon Wireless. Uggh! I hate Verizon! Damn you Sprint! 5 White z10s are shipping 3/28. I guess the 9 years meant something. I wonder what they will spend to reaquire me years from now.
its amazing u can preorder on verizon att and tmobile on there site but sprint has nothing on theres such a shame they will definetly lose boat loads of customers now beacuse they definetly dont care about us and never listen to all the demand for BB10 no reason we should be last people to get it.... thanks again sprint for staying as 4th best carrier in US by being last to release u FAIL
I too have been with Sprint for over 20 years, love my BB, and cannot believe that they will not carry the new BBz10. I'm not willing to change to an android or iphone! So, frustrating!
I chatted with a Sprint support person and she assured me that they will in fact carry the BBz10 as soon as it is available.
Sprint: We received your information and will connect you with a Chat Specialist soon.
Samantha W.: Thank you for contacting Sprint. I am happy to help you. Please give me a moment to take a look at your account.
Samantha W.: Please allow me a couple of minutes to refer the latest news and headlines about that.
You: Thank you , I can't find anything from Sprint on when they will be selling these.
Samantha W.: Have you tried this link
Samantha W.: You are right that it doesn't give the specific date but since Sprint has already made the deal with Blackberry
Samantha W.: It will be available with us at the same time it hits the market.
You: Okay great, some of my family wants a new phone and I just wanted to make sure that Sprint was going to support us.
Samantha W.: I assure you that we will definitely sell the New Blackberry phone
You: Awesome, thank you very much. Sprint has always been great and I was hoping that I could stay with you.
Samantha W.: We appreciate your business and will do our best to support you always, Steven.
Samantha W.: Thanks again
You: Okay, bye, have a nice Friday
Samantha W.: Thanks you too have a great weekend
SAMANTHA W is a liar! Sprint has announced publicly, they will not carry the z10. They are going to carry the q10 only on the initial OS10 phones. There are several public articles about this.
Earlier this week, Research in Motion (RIM) received welcomed news, with confirmation that three of the four major US carriers would carry its upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform. Today, the good news continues for the manufacturer, as Sprint (the fourth major U.S. carrier) announced that it also plans to launch BlackBerry 10 devices later this year.
However, unlike Verizion, AT&T, and T-Mobile, which are expected to begin releasing phones on RIM's BlackBerry 10 platform this month, Sprint's release schedule is still unknown. While the carrier has remained somewhat safeguarded on the subject; company spokesman Mark Elliot explained in an email to BGR that "Sprint plans to bring BlackBerry 10 to our customers later this year."
While all four major U.S. carriers may not be ready to carry the new platform and devices at the initial upcoming BlackBerry 10 launch, the positive news is still a welcomed turnaround for the manufacturer; as the company faced brutal delays of its new operating system and devices in 2012.
- That is correct, we are currently intially only going to carry the Q10. This device was announced to be launched later than the Z10, so no carrier has a release date at this time. Any other speculation for future devices is exactly that. I would personally not be suprised if we get more BB10 devices in the near future, but this is solidly my personal thought.
Social Media Care
I will leave Sprint and take my four lines somewhere else, if they do not carry the BB Z10, and soon. I am not interested in the Q10 and will not settle, because of Sprint's idiocy.
