Perhaps the Z10 is intended as a Valentines gift?

Why would you want to sign a contract then cancel? you see how that works? sometimes there might be a simple yet valid reason to NOT want to sign a contract and do unneeded credit check.
What the hell are you talking about? See how what works?

If you wanted a Z10 for a gift, you could still get it on contract through this deal and give it away. This is an UPGRADE offer. The assumption here is that you are a customer already and will be in the future. Why wouldn't you sign a contract if you are paying them anyway????

Edit: FYI There is no credit check for upgrades.

Just throwing it out there. Another reason not to sign a new contract is with new smart phone contracts you are stuck on a minimum $50 a month plan. If you are a existent customer you may be able to get a retention deal that is less than that monthly and recoup your savings there that you would have gotten on a contract. When my contract expired they were only wanting to offer me plans that were $50-60 but my present plan with data was under $40 so it didn't make sense to sign a contract and give up my monthly grandfathered plan.
Just throwing it out there for thought if you are an existent customer.

Also don't forget Trade in program if you happen to have an old phone. It doesn't say anything about it having to be a smart phone etc.. so those switching from old non-smart phones may benefit from this too for extra $50

Your offers normally come before it expires and than stay on for about a month or two after in which they expire. Offers on your account are time limited. I have the same offers on my account lol.

As a Fido customer who's dying for the Z10, what should I do? My current contract won't be up till September 3rd 2013 and Fido is only offering it with a 2 year contract at $350. :o :

So for the new BB10 phones, do you still need to get the Blackberry data plans or do BBM and email work any mobile data plan?

You don't need a special BlackBerry data plan (or BIS plan) if you're a regular customer. :) Your standard data plan will work.

I pre-ordered the Z10 at the price of $149+taxes a couple weeks back but now when I check my phone offers, it shows as $89+taxes with a $50 bill credit..

I am going to try and call into Customer Service and see what they can do as my CC was already charged the $149+taxes

I really don't want to cancel my pre-order and delay getting the device but also don't want to miss out on saving $110....will report back with updates...

I do not understand the much ado about contracts anymore. Perhaps there is an inherent bias with the term but in reality, the current contracts Bell, Rogers and Telus have are NOT locked-in contracts with large cancellation fees.

Basically the big three have taken a new policy on contract terminations where you pay the remainder of your phone subsidy plus a small (i.e. for Rogers $12.50) administrative fee to cancel a contract. With most retention offers being able to offer you somewhat good pricing on contracts + signing bonuses, it really comes out similarly to going with Wind, Mobilicity, etc.

There will be situations where the big three are better in terms of value, there will be situations where Wind, Mobilicity are better in terms of value. Having LTE speeds and cross-Canada coverage might be worth it for some people to pay the extra $5-10. The playing field between all the competitors is similar now, anyone who screams "contracts are bad" is either ignorant or a fanboy.

Because there is no more data compression with BB10 - you will need a bigger data plan. I am already almost though my old 500MB plan with the Z10.

For most people - a 2-6GB plan will be the norm unless you are just doing mail.

Before buying this, I'd recommend checking out the Verge review. Its definitely not a perfect by any stretch and IDK why people would chose this over similarly priced android phones.

http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/30/39297 ... z10-review

UI is funky, gestures aren't that great, hub system needs work, extremely limited aps and android emulation that doesn't really work properly with the rest of the UI. There is also 9 app limit thing that messes with the widgets. I'm not saying don't get it, just look into what you're buying before buying it.

again all these reviewers come from the point of 'would this device trump all existing ones by a huge margin' which I can safely say no one will ever be able to do in this space going forward, iphone 5 is not that different from iphone 4 nor any of the newer flavor android or WP or whatever.

Thats a good deal if you want a z10! But the 3 year at $50+ per month is tough to swallow :(
