BlackBerry offering T-Mobile customers $100 off BlackBerry purchases at ShopBlackBerry

Although many folks are still trying to determine whether or not BlackBerry’s not renewing T-Mobile US’s license to sell BlackBerry products when the license expires on April 25 of this year is a good thing or not, BlackBerry is already moving on.

Emails are being sent out today pretty much summing up the announcement as it was written in the press release, advising customers that BlackBerry is still working with others carriers and it also contains a coupon code for $100 off a BlackBerry smartphone at ShopBlackBerry.

The offer is valid for the U.S. only and works on purchases of the BlackBerry Q5, BlackBerry Q10 as well as the BlackBerry Z10. It's limited to one use per customer but each customer can purchase up to two phones at a time and it's set to expire on May 31, 2014.

Shame the Z30 is left off the list though. Anyone taking them up on the offer? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks, Madony!

Now I'm upset. Why they exclude the Z30? It shouldn't matter.

 CB10 

00stryder

They don't carry the Z30 on T-Mo, nor is there officially a variant that's been released to work on their network. Though BlackBerry *could* have included the Z30, really with this offer being what it is anyway, you could buy a different device and sell it for the $100 profit to use towards getting a Z30 off-shore and/or from Verizon.

Doolittle2

Not true! I have a Z30 STA100-5 that works just fine on T-Mobile. I bought it from GSM Nation.

Posted via Z30

00stryder

Again, I said *officially* released for use on T-Mo. That's like BlackBerry offering in-app credit to BB10 owners that use the Google Maps app, knowing full well that the only way they could be using such an app is if they installed it from a source outside of BlackBerry World and thus, not *officially* supported.

captainbdsc

You are correct! I have pondered getting that device myself

Would make sense however the Q5 is on this list and it's not available at all on the US.

The coupon is for ANYONE, not only for TM customers.
From his comment, he wants you to go to another carrier, and use the BB on that carrier!

"Also, for a limited time, you can enjoy $100 off a BlackBerry smartphone at shopblackberry.com when entering promotion code BLACKBERRY1.* "

We are deeply grateful to you as a loyal BlackBerry customer, and will do everything in our power to ensure a smooth transition should you choose another carrier.

* Offer expires May 31, 2014. Valid in U.S. only. Coupon only valid towards the purchase of a BlackBerry Q5, Q10 or Z10 smartphone. Quantities are limited. Limit one coupon per customer and two smartphones per customer. Offer subject to change without notice. No cash value, void where prohibited or restricted by law.

Awesome! Glad I saw this while searching for coupon code in the forums.
This is what the CB community is all about!

Fell off the Jet Ski today and lost my beloved Q10 somewhere in the atlantic ocean, so decided to go for the white Q10 as a replacement.

Guys...the T-Mo coupon offer is for T-mo customer who want to purchase BB devices for "OFFICIAL" support. The Z30 is "OFFICIALLY" sold and supported through VZW only in the states! The idea behind the coupon is to continue provide T-Mo BB users device access.
The license agreement ending is against T-Mo...not T-Mo customers interested in BB devices. This is BB's way of still doing so.
If you are a T-Mo customer and want a Z30 you have to do like everyone else who does not get it through VZW on contract, by purchasing unlocked STA100-5. This device will work perfectly on both of T-Mo & AT&T networks. It doesn't make sense for BB to undercut VZW and upset that agreement of exclusivity just so T-Mo's customers get a Z30 at discount.

Dukun

Perfectly on AT&T? Can the -5 now support AT&T's LTE band 17?

Not with the Z30 not included.

Prem WatsApp

The Z30 is still too much of a desirable "total" high-end phone in the S4/S5 league, and they need to get rid of overstocked Z10s now, and Qs before the Classic Q20 hits.

Z30 will not be heavily discounted until the new full-touch flagship is close.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

markf

How close? I keep reading 18 months. In 18 months, the iphone will have a 5 inch screen and all the Apple lemmings will be upgrading. The Galaxy will be up to number 6 with the LemonDrop OS or whatever they call it. And the new flagship BB will be behind again. Again there will be NO marketing. I would have never known that BB was bringing out the Z30 if I hadn't read about here and I got an e-mail from CNET that they had a review on the Z30 after it came out. 18 months is way too long. It needs to come out by this summer with lots of advertising. The $100 from BB is useless because the only phone that they have that would tempt me is the Z30 and it is not offered. The 2 keyboard phones hold no interest and I already have the Z10 (which I am still paying for and will for just over a year more). All I can hope for is that the heads of BB and T-Mo get over their snit and come to a new agreement. Perhaps they will start over by offering the Z30 or whatever flagship phone BB has out at that time. In reality I doubt it.

imcurved

I can't agree more. This is exactly what I have been waiting and contemplating over getting a z30. The discount will give the current Z10 tmobile users a push over. I'm currently is very happy with the Z10 but would upgrade to Z30 if I could use the discount. Anyway, I hope BlackBerry is reading this.

Posted via CB10

Not so great because most BB owners already have one of these phones. The only phone that is really coveted is the Z30 and it is not included. Chen's bean counters probably told him that BB would look good doing this, but would not be out too much money because they won't sell all that many as most already own one.Swithching to an other carrier is useless as they offer the same phones. Only Verizon offers the Z30 and I don't like their rates.

Exactly!!! I currently have a Z10 and would like to switch to a Z30. This doesn't benefit me at all.

Incorrect, the bulk of the owners using Blackberry's are still using OS7 devices. Hence the move back to the classic design to try and woo those still using OS7 to take a chance on Blackberry 10.

They should have a trade in your BB7, 6, maybe 5 devices with correspondingly increasing discounts on trade ins for BB10 devices! Good idea? Say 50 for the OS 5 - 75 for the OS6 - 100 for the OS7.

Nice idea but they should make the OS 7 offer 200 cuz BlackBerry want everyone to be on BB10 by then end of the year.

As long as they still have users on os5-os7 BlackBerry will still get bis fees if they have that added on.

I'd be more concerned getting iphone/android users to choose BlackBerry 10 devices.

We may very well see them do this discount when the q20 or q30 comes a long.

I guess this bold move was favorable to Wallstreet BBRY jumped up today. Chen is here to to kick a$$ and chew bubblegum, and he's all out of bubblegum.

Ahhh Z30 would've been great......

uh oh...signs of life from BlackBerry Marketing department. It's like they're trying to make money or something.

Omnitech

Giving the product away is not exactly a good way to make money, but for a short promotion for a limited number of users, it certainly has some marketing/PR value.

Clearly it is shaping up to be a very popular promotion. It seems that loyalty only lasts until someone else offers you a bigger discount.

It is sad to see BlackBerry enthusiasts are the company's worst enemy. Reading the comments so many want BlackBerry to subsidize them or give them stuff at fire sale prices. Question to you guys how do you expect the company to survive?

The company is struggling and instead of supporting it by either buying or via moral support they bitch.

Look at the wall huggers in comparison. When 5 came out the connector accessories had to be replaced. I am sure a small minority bitched but the rest dutifully upgraded and bought the extra accessories to boot.

Pretty sad.

Maybe said BlackBerry enthusiasts are also struggling.

Good point. I'm an enthusiast, but I'm also barely afloat financially and only marginally employed. My previous phone lasted me 8 years, then I moved to the Z10, my first smartphone. So when I say that I'd jump on the Z30 (if it were included) after only one year with the Z10, I think that speaks more loudly of my enthusiasm than my cheapness or unwillingness to support BlackBerry.

gokulesh

So that is the justification for asking free things from others who are struggling?

That is like a business is struggling and asking you guys to work for free even though you are struggling. Would you? Smh.

With supporters like this apple and google would struggle.

After reading this thread I have more respect for wall huggers.

Well, if you read MY posts, instead of other people's, or the posts you are imagining, you would see that I'm not asking for anything for free. I simply said that if the coupon DID apply to the Z30, I would get one. THAT is where my level of demand for the product meets my financial reality. And if you knew my financial reality, you would probably wonder why I was even considering throwing money down on a phone AT ALL. Maybe others are whining and crying and asking for something for free, well then, reply to their f*#$'n posts. You don't need to be an a$$ about it to me.

Strongly agree.

I almost got excited, but then I saw that the Z30 is not included. :( My wife and I already have Z10s. I'd jump at getting the Z30 for a deal! Can we ask John to amend the deal? :D I wonder that it's not included, except that they are on back order on the site... *sigh* I thought this was my break.

Tmobile never had the z30

xmasberry

No, they never did but the Z30 that is available through ShopBlackberry is TMobile compatible so that shouldn't factor into it.

Wait, it will come soon enough, once the new full-touch flagship is closer.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

So what does that mean to future updates of the BlackBerry os?

Dan Felice

At least BlackBerry is trying. I mean tmo was just being a d-bag with what they did trying to get BlackBerry users to switch. I would have done the same thing if I was Chen. Hopefully they will take advantage of this cool offer.

Any idea how long it would take for DR globalTech Inc to deliver the phone? I hope it's not SOON!

Still gonna keep on going with my TMO prepaid service seeing as I already have the phone.

I think it might take some times before all users receive the emails. Both my friend and I haven't got it yet. Excited to see I can get an unlocked Q10 for just $299.

I wished the Z30 was on the list. I already have the Z10 on T-Mobile. I wanted the Z30. Maybe they'll think about it and add it before the deadline and I will be all over this.

tonythecanuck

For all you Z30 owners (like me), take a look at the HUGE range of Z30 cases made by "Head Case." They sell a lot of cases through eBay, and they have some really great designs....

From what I can tell this has been in the mix as of late, the only way I got T-Mobile to sell me a berry 10 was over the phone and they didn't wanna do that!
T-Mobile may be kinda ticked off because blackberries can be unlocked, and although they promote bringing your own they will offer no support for any type of phone if you do. Trust me I know, I still haven't received a phone call from upper level support and so I fixed my old storm by rolling it back.

I was going to buy the Q 10 in a few months to compliment my Z 10 but now I just don't know what T-Mobile may pull next?

I can see the strange outages experienced by only those using blackberries in a year or two. "Sir, we don't have to provide you support with your phone nor service it's our policy " "But.." Sir I am sorry but we have made changes to our system and it's no longer compatible with your phone and by the way sir you have another year to pay your phone off would you like an Android? " CLICK!!!

What does that get the Q5 down to? That may be the deal of the day for a basic GSM phone.

There's always something to complain about no matter what the company does eh? Good grief people...get over it already!

Excellent job Mr. Chen!

Most people already have a z10, q10 or q5. They should have definitely included the z30 in this promo.
