Yay for Z10! Does anyone know when T-Mobile's conference will take place? I want that Q10...

Engadget coverage started at 11 ET, so within the 11 ET hour?

Just went to T-Mobile web site...Front page has 4 featured phones. Samsung Galaxy SII, SIII, Nokia Lumia 810, and Windows Phone 8X by HTC...not a very promising start. There's not even a mention of the Z10. However when you do find it it's only $99 on contract ($18 mo. for 24 mo.) or a flat $531.99

BBVegasGirl80

Really? That's it? WOW! Thanks for the info! :-) *rushes to buy Z10*

Take heart my friends, Tm-Mobile's in store presentation is far better than At&t's! They had a virtual station set up!

The London Geezer

Someone will soon be suggesting that new Z10 owners port Android apps, port Android apps, and port some more Android apps.

sirfly2fly

So-sa

Congrats to you all!!!

paulmike83

Sorry to hear guys that T-Mobile isn't showing the Z10 on their site, I was just reading some reviews on the ATT site, and the customers so far give it a 5/5 and it also seems a lot of them have switched from Androids and iPhones, like me. So the so called experts that bash or don't promote this phone are useless. The customer is the real expert and I'm sure you will agree. Rock on BlackBerry

Well, if you go to Business section of TMO web, you will see that TMO proudly stated that they are the first to release Z10 for business accounts.

Cheers

It is advertised on there site. It is in rotation at the top. Good to go for tmobile

arhcangel

They just changed the site! Of course there are 3 rotating banners and the second one is the iPhone is coming April 12th. The first one is pretty funny...
Ladies and Gentlemen.
T-Mobile has left the clueless-cellular-company building!

Ojhoana

That's correct, however you can go into the store. They have the specs, pricing and paperwork. They are just waiting for corporate to update the pricing. It will be by EOD.

My first comment from my new T-Mobile Z10

Question: Do you find Crackberry.com even funner on your Z10 app?

PLTM

My Tmo store only got 8 devices and I bought 2 of them and another lady was bought 1 as well.

I love this phone so much.

I am under the impression that my phone is unlocked by default. Can someone verify that for me? In the settings under the Sim Card tab it have Phone Network Lock. Mine says Network Subset: Unlocked and Service Provider: Unlocked. Those this mean my phone is unlocked?

Jay47

i would also like to know that same question.

Rootbrian

Try a different sim card.

Rootbrian

Only way to find out is to try another sim in it, not from your carrier that is.

Congratulations USA,

Just bought 2 z10 this is an amazing phone, since I'm coming from a 9700 bold

Emu the Foo

Omg good for you LOL! Good for you for sticking it out with a 9700. Great phone. Z10 is one of the few BlackBerrys in my opinion to be above the 9700 for obvious reasons

doxa sub750T

In a process of getting two myself once my day is over at the office.

I bought the last 2 at my T-Mo store. Now it's on to the Crackberry tutorials to figure out how to use this beautiful piece of hardware!

Jay47

My order was shipped. yes on its way. I had the 8330, 9630 tour, 9650 bold, EVO 4G, Motorola photon, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5, but i'm back to Blackberry again yes....

skel420

I bought my Z10 at T-Mobile this morning and there were 5 other people buying the Z10 at the same time as me. I am very happy with my purchase!

imcurved

I bought mine out right today. However, I couldn't send any MMS (text with picture). Does it problem happen to anybody? I received and sent SMS text okay.
UPDATE: Called customer service and the MMS problem fixed. Also switched to Simple Choice plan.

stez7878

So excited with my Z10 coming from a iphone user. Got it this afternoon at T-mobile. Great to be back with blackberry (last BB was a 9700) with t-mobile.

sirpedro83

I'm at an appointment and as soon I leave I'm getting mine!!!! GIGGITY GIGGITTY!!!

amp323

No headphones included with the T-Mobile Z10 :(

JPSKILLZ

Yea strange. I think it has something to do with the pricing, but I hear Verizon is going this route as well so...

allanabellard
