  • Carrier Availability For The BlackBerry 10 Limited Edition Explained



    We reported already that for whatever reason, Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 devices would not be available for Verizon subscribers. So those who have already signed up for a Verzon model, will only be getting a 4G model in replacement. However, BlackBerry has come clean and is now offering a solution:

    "Some developers have indicated that they are very loyal Verizon customers and would only like the device on their preferred network. So for these developers, we will offer them a choice. In lieu of the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device, developers on Verizon can instead:

    1. Request a Verizon BlackBerry 10 device to replace their BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha, adhering to the same terms and conditions of the Limited Edition device in order to qualify. This will be a final commercial device and will ship when BlackBerry 10 is commercially available on Verizon.
    2. Request a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device from an alternate carrier, one which is supported as a part of the Limited Edition program.

    For those developers who have already requested their Limited Edition device on Verizon, email communication will follow in the coming days requesting your preferred selection. For those who have not yet requested their Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device, but wish to pursue option 1, updated instructions on procedure will be made available as soon as possible."

    Here is my tip for Verizon users who are eligible for a Limited Edition device... If you are already eligible for a upgrade through Verizon, pay the $200 for the upgrade, take the Limited Edition on GSM 4G and sell it for at least over $1000 on eBay.

    Since you weren't going to get a Verizon LE anyway, you may as well sell it and reap the profits. Unless you must have the device as a collectors item.
