Why Rogers stopped offering white BB Z30
Hence it is surprising that white model in unavailable .
Not sure if it is Rogers or BB issue?

It's a great phone for sure, great hardware spec for the price that it is now. But yes, it is being discontinued, effectively being replaced by the BB Leap.

Yes, the smartphone life cycle lasts roughly 2 years. It can be more or less than that by a few months depending on popularity (Old S4's and iPhone 5 are still sold I think), how many the company ordered from the manufacturer and release date. The Z30 device will still receive OS updates and such, so nothing to worry about there.

Did you know that Leap continues to use the same 2 year old hardware tech(MSM8960)? In fact, the Z30 is slightly better being MSM8960T.

Umm...can you please post these 'great deals'? I see $299 at Staples and $269 @ Crackberry, ok deals but certainly not 'great' considering the leap is only $50 more.droller wrote: ↑May 2nd, 2015 10:45 amRogers was never going to carry the Z30, and they never did in-store. All Z30 devices were special order.
Z30 is also coming to end of life (phone has been out for over 20 months).
Anyone wanting a BB these days is best to buy one outright. There are lots of great deals on the Z30 through Staples or Crackberry.

Really man? Aiya... Really don't understand why so many people on RFD are so rude to each other. This is why I rarely contribute to threads.

Leap is definitely a cheaper phone as compared to the Z30.

Wow, how is that rude? You posted "there are lots of great deals". The word 'are' for me, means the present and not the links you posted which were 2 months ago and barely anyone got those prices. Don't understand your rude comment. In any event, thank you for your contribution.droller wrote: ↑May 6th, 2015 3:33 pmReally man? Aiya...

Doing a quick search of "Z30" will show some prior deals people have picked up. The lowest being $180.

The build quality of the Z30 is that of a premium smartphone. I don't know much about the Leap but I don't think build quality will be as good.
