How to get in on this deal

All, thought I would update the original post so that things are easier if you are looking to get in on the deal.

To acquire this deal, please send a PM to christov. He will in turn offer a unique code so that you can order directly from the Blackberry Shop online.

Below is a quote from christov which I hope people take into consideration and can be viewed HERE

" Hi RFDers, I was able to get another lot of codes. I'll go through and start replying to the backlog of PM's later tonight.
As mentioned earlier, the codes are unique, good for a single use, and only one code can be used per shipping address.
The goal here is to have people use the code to buy the device for their own use. Not to hoard, and try and flip for a profit.

Please, if you are asking for a code, keep this in mind. "

How to install Google Play Services

Below is information taken directly from Davidn on how to install Google Play and a patch for Google Play dependencies..feel free to ask questions

For the new BB10 owners in this thread, welcome! From an app store perspective you have two official options, BlackBerry World and Amazon. I would also recommend installing the Google Play Store on your devices. I installed it on my Z30 and it works great. Very easy process. Instructions can be found here:

Some apps may need to be patched after installing. Also very easy. This can be done right on the phone:

I also have SNAP installed but it does have some limitations. For instance, if the app needs to DL files after install, SNAP will not accommodate this. Or if the app needs to connect to Google Play for an in app purchase it will also throw an error. Official Play Store is the way to go IMO.

I have a friend who works for Blackberry and he let me know this afternoon about this sale (employee discount). I ended up putting in an order for two phones through him. It's a great deal especially if you have contacts at Blackberry. Only Black ones are currently available.

All my blackberry buddies were either booted off the boat, or jumped to another.
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

You would probably have to pay double for a USED iPhone 5s

It is a 2013 phone, but the processor is actually faster than the Blackberry Classic released a few weeks ago(and also the Blackberry Leap scheduled for release in June).

This is a phone from the future in the world of Blackberry.

The hardware the phone uses is excellent, not to mention the operating system is extremely efficient, well beyond that of iOS or Android.

I've been using a Z30 since the Black Friday ShopBlackberry sale. Love the phone - love the OS. Battery life is fantastic. The HUB is a great design. Multi-tasks like no other OS.

There are a lot of BlackBerry haters out there. There are also a lot of people who have tried the phone and have been very impressed and at this price (if you can get one) it's a steal!
