If you're a prospective AT&T BlackBerry Q10 owner you'll be happy to know that their preorder page has finally gone live. It's been a long time coming but it's good to finally see the Q10 making the rounds here in the US.

You can head over now and lock in your Q10 for $199 on a 2-year contract. It's noted on the preorder page that devices will be shipped on June 18th, so we assume that the official release date is right around there -- although still no sign of any official dates or press release.

If you're jumping on the Q10 off-contract, AT&T is offering it up for $584.99 as well.

I've been waiting since November for this... I can't believe it's actually coming!

I was on tech support yesterday with AT&T and the tech said it was being released and provisioned today. Weird.

Major dissappointment once again.
- Lack of commnication from AT&T
- Ridiculous delay in delivering a prouct already in circulation world-wide
- True availabilty still unknown
- Little/No promotion or advertising of the product
- Still waiting on 10.1 OS for the Z10
- Another poor BlackBerry launch in the US

Sad.

And yet they're still ahead of Sprint lol. This is sad. I feel like these carriers want BlackBerry to fail. Have you been into any of the big 4 stores lately? No BlackBerry advertising whatsoever. It's sad.

I saw a nice section in Costco for the Z10. I believe it was on sale too at either $99.99 or 49.99. It is $49.99 on Costco's wireless website. Prices are with a 2-yr contract of course.

I can't believe that 10.1 is still not available for the Z10.

It will be September before we get any kind of 10.1 update. Canada however will be on 10.3.

That isn't too bad. I expect to get a Q10 from Sprint by then. I'm going to enjoy the nice summer weather in the meantime!

Tony Tran1

Awesome...

I hear a lot of this and that but when I tried it out...

Two words: loved it!

LOCOSDEL136

Ya por Fin lo pedi el Q10 ahorra falta 10.1 al Z10 para cuando ...

Jphaneuf01

Going to buy one even with the delay
Don't have an upgrade so I have to pay full price. Totally worth it though.

Are there demos in the stores yet?

ralfyguy

I know I could load a 10.1 leak on my Z10, but it's not my thing, especially considering the contacts mess afterwards.
But the fact that 10.1 is still not officially out in the US makes me feel like I already have an outdated phone...

@craig

I've loaded numerous software leaks without issue. Backup and then restore after. If you're concerned about the integrity of the software as well you shouldn't be. It will only accept legitimate software.

Going to trade in my bold 9900, keep my Z10, and get the Q10. BB10 devices are amazing!

T-Mob, AT&T - WHERE IS SPRINT......

Coming soon! Late Summer / Early Fall!

Oh. We sadly have to wait last in line because the other US carriers will have it first. Have you preregistered? I haven't.

crazyhairboy

i did pre-reg. Sad - just sad... :(
I guess the only positive is that maybe Playbook will have BB10 by then - i was hesitant already because of the loss of functionality. Let's see who wins the snail race. >.>

EarthyBerry

The so called registration for updates on the Q10 were such a waste of time. Not even one email was received about the Q10. Smh.. glad it's finally available though.

Never got an update for the Z10 either when it was available from AT&T. At least they are consistent.

The NSA probably has your update from AT&T. :/

thecurryman

lol yeah they usually arent but i actually just got an email about the q10 and that its available for pre order! very surprised!

estuiber

I received emails from AT&T for both the Z10 and Q10. The latter arrived around 0700 CDT today. Two week wait for a pre-order? That's silly. I'd really like to see some clarification on why this process lacks so much transparency...and why it take so much longer than anywhere else in the world.

camera531

Good luck ever getting that clarification...

"You are not eligible at this time for an upgrade at a discounted price. However, you can take advantage of our no commitment pricing. Additional discounts may be available on 7/24/2013."

NOOOOOOOOOO!! AT&T!! YOU BASTARDS!!!

crazyhairboy

You'll probably still get it before us Sprint users. At least YOU have the option to pay full price. :P

Connor83

Can't wait til I can go to the store and pick it up.

Winston Loh

Hmmm finally the date is announced. Seems like AT&T will be the first one..

T-Mobile has it in store today... Ordered mine from AT&t but going to Tmobile to check it out

Jonneh

I can't decide if I should go ahead with getting it now that's it's so freakin' late, or wait for the next version of the high-end Q10 to come eventually.

Nate650

What are you currently using?

Jonneh

I'm on Android with last year's Galaxy Nexus off-contract. I've had an available upgrade with AT&T for months now; been waiting for the Q10. Can't wait to use that awesome keyboard and experience Blackberry Flow. I left Blackberry after the original Bold 9000 a couple years back, but with Thorstein Heins holding the reigns, I can not wait to give them another go! BB10 looks amazing in videos and the Q10 is definitely the form-factor I want. Add in the ability to use my android apps, (well, sort of), and I am sold.

But the U.S launch has been so delayed, and I know I'll definitely want the next high-end models Blackberry releases...so I'm wondering if I should try to hold off and wait it out since I'll already be behind by getting the Q10 now, or go ahead and dive in with my upgrade.

buzzon

Ordered Mine from AT&T! Can't wait..... going to Tmobile today to play with it ;)

digitalrevolution

CNBC's Power Lunch is about to cover the release of the Q10. I just saw the teaser for the segment.

So I noticed that AT&T no longer carries the 9900 Bold(other than a refurb). I wonder why they took it off the market completely. I still love that device. My guess is BB has no intention in supporting legacy devices. Thoughts??

davehong

Placed an order for a Q10!

playpen007

Just preorder Q10 for my wife...

go1ndr

I'm going to wait until its in the stores on the 16th (per our store) and play with it a little before buying. They did say the $100 trade-in of an old smartphone (3 years old or less) will still apply. Does anyone know what OS /build will ship with AT&T units in the US (CA)? Hopefully they have the 2-way sync issue fixed in the OS and the Link update with that same fix will happen soon. Any info is apprecaited!

xposeurphoto

I believe all the Q10's are pre-loaded with 10.1 OS

Trentp03

picked up my Q10 today, and am very excited to report the phone exceeded my expectations!

tabaddon

Anyone know if there's a reason AT&T doesn't have the white Q10 available and whether they'll have it at some point?

eaknet

At the moment the white Q10 is a Verizon exclusive. I think that sort of thing usually lasts about 6 months or so.

tabaddon

Thanks. But, sigh. I've waited so long already. AT&T's pretty much my only option right now.

ETA: The BB site shows white as available for "pre-register" at Sprint. Still doesn't help me, but it gives me a tiny kernel of hope.

xposeurphoto

WTH is up with a 2-week wait. Its not like the phones are already available. Not to mention the 10.1 OS update for Z10. Who can I write to about this nonsense?

eaknet

You can write to anyone you want....good luck getting a response, though.
