When it was announced that Rogers would not be carrying the latest device from BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Z30, a lot of folks were understandably upset over the matter. The comments filled up on the Rogers Facebook account, their Twitter account mentions were a mess and even other carriers such as Bell and TELUS got in the mix by letting Rogers customers know they would be offering the device. That customer backlash, though, appears to of have all been worth it for those interested in the BlackBerry Z30 as Rogers has now confirmed they will indeed be offering the BlackBerry Z30 to customers.

“We have a longstanding partnership with Blackberry and continue to be big supporters of the company and their products. Rogers will be making the device available online, through our national reservation system and directly to our business to business customers. We’re pleased to add the new Z30 to our roster of Blackberry smartphones, which includes the Z10, Q10 and Q5.” 

That's a nice change of events and one I honestly did not expect to see but I am quite pleased to of have been proven wrong here. The BlackBerry Z30 is currently going through Rogers certification process and when it goes up for ordering, we'll be sure to let you all know.

Has anyone seen Ron Brown (RonBro66)? I think he's missing...

RonBro66

Hey C Jay. I'm right here Bruh. I have a cousin in Toronto. He can't wait to get his Note 3 after purchasing the S4 a while back. He told me that nobody cares about Blackberry in Canada no more. Rogers doesn't want that failure of a device(Z30) to linger on their shelves & in the end drives profit margin down. Sadly, this is the last Blackberry phone to hit the market. It's going to be a flop, just like the Z10, which has a massive writedown and soon the Q10. The Q was supposed to sells "10's of million", quote Heins Ketchup. In the second quarter they only sold 1.9 million BB10 phones, compared 2.something million in the first, ouch. Blackberry is finished, need I say more.

Blackberry is going to be chopped up and sold in parts. My S4 is so much better than Z30.

shebmiller

I heard good things about the S4. My friend wanted to show it to me but said he was without a phone for three weeks since he dropped it from the kitchen table. Seems like everytime someone wants to show me an S4, their screen is cracked and broken.

Hiylow

If you want to talk politics here is a clue. GO TO A POLITICAL FORUM AND MAKE A COMMENT.

DisturbedRocks31

And now everyone who whined about this, will not buy the phone...

seascape

It's only being offered online. Rogers isn't risking much here. Smart move by them to respond to their customers.

br14

Not that smart. Anyone with half a brain can see through this.

They won't be promoting the phone in store, and you won't be able to buy one in store.

They may as well not have bothered. I'm off to another carrier.

BionicKris

Can't you just check one out at another carrier's shop to play around with it then order from Rogers? That's what I'd do. If the Z30 doesn't sell for Rogers they'll say "I told you so"..

I hope the Z30 sells well. I'm locked in for another 18 months with AT&T with my Z10, which I love, but I'd like to snap up a Z30 when I'm cut loose.

But it looks like a really good phone and is loaded with features. Plus, with Jelly Bean support, there's no reason not to buy it. The problem is marketing sucks. BlackBerry's communications department sucks.

So hold on Dejanh you speak for everyone who is with Rogers or is about to change to Rogers??. You know for a fact that the people who whined are definitely not gettin the Z30??

I swear some people on crackberry are just plain braindead when they make stupid comments like the one above and also disturbedrocks31's post.

TheStoryUp

I'll probably get it around Christmas or after, but I didn't whine about it. My 14yr old niece wants my z10. I think a lot of people will wait for the price to go down. I wouldn't expect a lot of sales right away.

Now all the people who were outraged should go and buy a Z30!

I got a little irritated when I saw so many people angry and calling Roger's traitors for betraying their Canadian roots, but honestly how may of those people (aside from the spirited members of this site, of course) had plans to even buy a Z30? How many of them are even BlackBerry customers. Loving your shared Canadian Roots with BlackBerry is great and all, but love isn't a line on the company balance sheet.

IJKBB10

It doesn't matter if not everyone was planning on buying a z30. BlackBerry is Canadian, so is Rogers and therefore they should be supporting them 100%. Period.

I think it's more about calling Rogers out for it's hypocrisy when Verizon was trying to stake a claim in the Canadian market. Rogers was wrapping itself in Canadian flag telling subscribers to oppose Verizon setting it's foot in Canadian market.

intruderalert

Good point and maybe the most important one relating to this story. Rogers and Bell should do their best to help promote and sell BlackBerry phones, that is if they still have the interest of all Canadians at heart like they did when Verizon expressed an intent to enter the Canadian market.

That's cool that people who have Rogers will get to have the z30. If only blackberry listened to customers as well as Rogers does.

At least have the option, being able to toggle features is always good so that there are less complaints.

Let this be a testament to the fact that there are BlackBerry fans out there, I think thought that BlackBerry needs to do more to get people stuck on OS7 rolling with BB10, there are two many people in the forums saying that they are stay with an Old Bold or leaving the platform, if we keep BlackBerry moving, they'll keep us moving

Rogers should be ashamed of themselves to deny BlackBerry a chance to sell what I believe is their best full touch device to date .

Now, Now, Now they have to subsidize the cost of those devices over two years not three. The result was a given, Carriers weren't going to make less money, they passed it on to us! I actually believe that the carriers need to itemize the cost of the phone on the monthly bill.

Make sure that if you already left that you let them know. That way they know if sales are not as they would like that it still cost them. On the other hand I am just glad they listened

Hell yeah! Glad to see we do have some power as BlackBerry consumers or that a company cares enough about its customers to offer them something they want regardless of how much profit is involved. #notwhatnetflixwoulddo

People better buy the darn things now after screaming bloody murder over this. If they don't, carriers won't listen next time.

And that's the way businesses ought to be run. Genuine communication with their customer base.

Way to go Rogers.

I am truly impressed with Rogers decision to do this.... if only BlackBerry was this responsive to their customers.....

I will buy a Z30 if they bring the CIBC mobile payment app to it....

Also... I really hope that they fire Mr. Ketchup...

Not Canadian myself, but happy to see a big carrier continuing to support the new devices and not just the current line-up. Happy for Rogers customers.

I am so glad for our Northern Neighbors that Rodgers have decided to offer the BlackBerry Z30. I love my BlackBerry and will always support this great company and their products. I only wish that I could own them all.

I think BlackBerry community has won Rogers' change of plan. Would android fans push for their needs as we do? We clearly pass the message. BlackBerry rocks. Getting the Z30.

I am taking the time to personally thank all the folks that voiced their vote to Rogers in order for this to happen.

Bravo!

That's what I'm talking about. Too bad the US carriers don't get the same demands from customers.

Good choice, nice to see you do listen sometimes to your customers and the Canadian people. This is a good decision.

Thank you Rogers for listening to your customers.

GRojasHruska

Now please do the same with Fido =) Thanks.

lol I wonder if they would even bother combing our comments on articles about them... would be good PR.. Not even the Fido website is working right now... RANTRANTRANT

Great! Don't even use Rogers, nowhere near it to do so, but fought to help you folks.

Now, if we can get a little help out here to get a fully, fully featured, multi-accounts capable FB application natively onto BB10, that would really help several folks out here too -). Like say, HooteSuite, or FriendCaster Pro, or one of those, or get BB to update theirs to handle what folks are needing from it.

TIA

I knew Rogers wouldn't be that stupid, right on Rogers! I'm happy for Rogers customers that wanted this device :)

I own a Z10 and am with Rogers. The antenna in the Z30 was what I was interested in due to issues I'm having with my location. Today I worked a deal with Bell for the Z30 on paper once it was released. I was going to pay 500 Dollars to cancel my contract and then buy the Z30 for whatever that will be. Then I read this tonight, This is great news and I will be stay on with Rogers. But that was close!!

Until BlackBerry gets its house in order I won't buy another BlackBerry smartphone. Thorsten is a failure as chief executive officer.

With the right advertising this phone should sell in the states. From my experience people will buy the phone if they knew anything about it. I always show my Z10 off to customers and haven't had one say that they weren't impressed.

At this point no amount of marketing can save BlackBerry in the states. Without the apps they would literally have to ditch the BlackBerry name brand before anyone would give it a look. Sucks but it's true.

Well I complained and will be buying one online, to go with my Q10 and my wife's Z10! The Z30 will be a perfect business travel companion!

Thanks for listening Rogers!

Good job Canadians, your voices were heard!

Now let's hope enough ppl buy the Z30 that Rogers doesn't ignore BlackBerry products in future!

they were probably gauging how many units will be sold with this stunt

I left Sprint USA after more than 10 years because they refused to offer me the CHOICE of a Z10. Good decision Rogers, you did the right thing!
