Pick up a BlackBerry Q10 at T-Mobile tomorrow for $0 down


Watch tech blogs try and spin this badly for BlackBerry when it's not only them and is a good deal.

It's actually not. In the end, you will pay $0+(25x24)=$600 for this phone, whereas right now, you would pay $100+(20x24)=$580.

But what if you know you'll want the jump program and will use it as soon as possible? 25x6=150 vs 100+(20x6)=220 It's a 1st time discount for their new jump program.

Right. It's more worth if it you do JUMP. But I like to own my phones, rather than lease them :)

Think of it this way: you don't have one hundred cash but you really want the phone. With this you can own it now and pay it monthly. As long as the total cost is not more than the price of paying outright then it is an alternative. It's an alternative not a better deal.

Haha.... love the "Well qualified " part. So basically, the majority of real world people will still have to put a deposit.

Z10 is an awesome device. Battery life is a bit weak but bb10 is far superior to anything on the market right now. The only thing wrong with BlackBerry now is perception. They must get creative and drive through this negativity that is clearly influenced by those profiting from BlackBerry's struggles. The stock market manipulators and morons at the US retail stores are killing this brand....

Perception is a big one, but I'd put apps above that. Apps will improve perception, but a change in perception may not bring in apps.

Also, the battery charger bundle makes the battery life almost a non issue.

I agreed with you 100%. I came from an Iphone 4s and I know for fact that Z10 is way better than all of those devices on the market right now. If Blackberry knows how to market, I am sure they can sale millions. The A10 must blow the competitions away with specs. or it will be another fail device. I am sure Blackberry aware of it.

I would be more interested in a sale price on the full price instead. I've been paying my devices in full.

So I would still have to pay 579.99 total for the phone, and my monthly payments will be more? Keeping the down payment but lowering the full price would be better.

You'd actually pay $600! The monthly payments go up from $20 to $25.

If someone wants to buy the phone at retail price tomorrow, I wonder what price they'll be charged...

Very used car salesman-ish of TMO. The Q10 costs $580 right now, but with the "sale" it will cost you $600, because they up your EIP by $5 each month.

For the Q10, this sale is probably only worth it if you're planning to enroll in JUMP and do an upgrade 6 months later.

If it is $0 down, is there an increase in the monthly installment? or is there an increase in the term/length of payment?

Depending on which phone you get, there may be an increase in the monthly installment, and you may actually end up paying more over 24 months (the 2 year duration stays the same.) See my Q10 example above.

I just got my wife a q10 and it was 100 plus 20 per month for 24 months.
Apparently I became a well qualified buyer in between march when I got my z10 and June when I fot a q10 because I had to pay half for the z.

Not that I care, overall price is lower.

The week after I pick up a Q10 for my sis for the full down payment. . . Got to love T-Mobile. . .if you wait long enough there is always a promotion . . .

The T-Mobile rep said the Z10 will be $ 18 for 24 months! Not to damn bad!!!

Typed on this sick Z10

Non T-Mobile phones on the T-Mobile network may or may not get WiFi calling once it rolls out.

It's actually $70 cheaper cuz the monthly payments are $25 instead of $20 (assuming you enroll in JUMP! For 6 months)

The problem with BlackBerry perception is its controlled by people who have invested interest in competing platforms. Why else would BlackBerry not have the top 10apps native in their market? I'm quite sure the competition is very aware of how solid the new BlackBerry 10 platform really is. By limiting the access to popular apps will also affect the perception of that platform.

This is no big deal.

'NO money down' means you payout the full price of the phone ONE month later.
Z10 @$532, and Q10 @$580.
TM is NOT giving the phones away. They CHARGE YOU you for it.

Wish we could deal sole this on South Africa

If I got unlimited data, wouldn't care about legacy OS.
