With a $549.99USD price on the KeyOne - safe to assume in CDN this will be $699 knowing what carriers have done in the past here?

Christov - will EPP pricing be available for the KeyOne in the future, or as a TCL device, no more EPP on future devices?

I am going to need to wait a bit for KEYone to drop in price - definitely can't afford the approx. $699 price.....

Good question! Hoping christov can still get EPP on KEYone!

That's actually a good question - i'm pretty sure there won't be EPP pricing though unless Blackberry Mobile decides to offer as a goodwill gesture. But Blackberry and Blackberry Mobile are two different companies.

Just posting to confirm the Christov EPP for the Dtek60. The transaction went smoothly and received my Dtek60 (2 of them) just like buying from Shop BB.

The phone is slippery, so I recommend buying the case with EPP at the same time with Christov.

Already miss my secure blackberry Q10, but unfortunately this is the future, and if you want the apps, its time to be herded into adopting the android/google information gathering platform.

Thanks Christov.

I got a 32nd brand case from Amazon - " Tough Gel Silicone Defender" for $10. Very happy with it. The BB silicon case I didn't like and the other ones are pricey.

Anyone find a good case for DTEK60 similar to otterbox.com ?
They used to make the best Blackberry cases but stopped after the Z30 released
I'm looking for something decent not just a gel slip cover

TCL snuck in the date of May 5th via twitter but that might be the available date for carriers and not consumers. I've already reserved one, but may change my mind when I see the pricing.

Telus Corporate, I have a plan through my employer and it's a small company so they offered to reserve it for me as my company uses a lot of blackberries anyways (though it's my personal corporate plan I pay for)

Telus is always ahead of the game
Rogers - as always, slow to the party. my corporate dealer has no pricing information, nor ETA for the availability. only device i can reserve is the S8 for $675 - which is a complete joke

I do agree actually I use to hop between Telus and Rogers for deals and would have to wait for certain phone releases, however in today's time it's usually better to just stay with one or go to one of the less known brands as I'm wondering what's going to happen with my corporate plan when I go from the classic to the Keyone, hopefully nothing.

Anyone know what Priv has dropped to by now?
It's on sale for $399 right now. IIRC EPP is based on regular MSRP (which is $599), so my guess is there's no further discount.

But unless you really, really need a keyboard, don't get it. They have been cutting support (complimentary phone support is gone, OS beta program ended, advertised monthly patches are coming later and later, refusal to announce whether phone will get Nougat). Honestly I can't even recommend waiting for the KEYone, at least not until they show they will stand behind the whole Android business outside of selling the Hub+ suite.

I'm not even sure if you buy it brand new now, if they would honour the full year of warranty from sale date.
The myth on the Internet is that Canadians are nice people. Those people who say this just haven't been on RFD.
