wow, it is so unfortunate that some folks decided to take advantage of christov's generous offer\efforts in getting the RFD community a better deal on BBs with his EPP......


Always seems to the case. a good deal can't last forever - there will always be that someone that ruins it for everyone.....

I picked up a Z30 from christov at the great price of $199 - and was hoping to wait it out until either the PRIV goes down in price or when BB releases the newer Android device with a physical keyboard. All I can hope is when that time comes, christov will still be able to assist.

Thank you christov for all your hardwork and generosity in helping out the RFD Community - you don't owe the community anything and it is appreciated by most that you took the time to help out! Thank you!

Yup ... 16 dollars less than what I bought on EPP..
Dtek60 is still holding at 650 dollars every where ( and Chris has stopped ordering for us on EPP)

Just hold tight until black friday. If nothing comes up, go with the 50. I loved my 50 but wanted to play with the 60. I found with a bit of work you could optimize the 50 pretty nicely where it uses very little battery and has full functionality. Mine would only get warm if I was playing a gpu sucking game for a while.
For me the dtek series are awesome and I think the 60 is well worth the bump in price if you consider it's competition. Clean and secure android with an sd card slot as wel as 4gb ram w a sd 820 card is sweet. If nothing comes of blackfriday i'm going for regular price and not thinking twice about it.

My wife is of mentality that if something costs more , it is better ( even if she would never use those functions) .....lol... I am more techie than her and very happy with Dtek50 but she thinks Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the Ultimate phone on earth.... I am trying to tell her its not that way.......
So may be upgrading to Dtek60 will shut her up........

Another problem is that if BlackFriday sales are in person ( means you need to go to stores) ,I can not go anywhere on Friday before 5 pm... work hours are such....
It is cyber Monday that I can order online though........

My employer is having a tie with Telus and giving Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 32 GB free on 2 years contract but plan costs 65 bucks a month ( and we dont use Canada wide calling) it has 4GB data... I already signed for 4GB data plan for Public mobile for 38 bucks.....

I feel that! Most people have the same mentality. I tried a samsung s6 and really didn't like the UI skin. I would never give up the plan I have now either. its' 33$ a month with flexible data. I have never gone over 40$

My girlfriend was a diehard iphone user until she played with my dtek50. now she wants a 60 as well haha (i guess i'm lucky that way)

luckily the 60 is mainly sold online so you'll see a sale right away. good luck!
