Rogers won't be carrying the BlackBerry Z30

*Update* - Rogers will indeed be offering the BlackBerry Z30 online. Read more here.

Well, some bad news on the Z30 front. It looks like longtime BlackBerry supporter Rogers won't be stocking the BlackBerry Z30 - at all. Various reports have confirmed that Rogers is passing on the upcoming device and will stick with the current devices.

This comes as a big surprise to BlackBerry fans since Rogers has stocked all of the top BlackBerry models over the last few years. They've most recently offered up the Z10, Q10 and Q5 but sadly won't be making the move to the Z30.

A Rogers spokeswoman commented:

“We believe we can fulfil our customers’ demand for a BlackBerry device with our current lineup”

It's definitely a buzzkill for Rogers users who will now need to seek alternate plans if looking to pickup a Z30 in a few weeks. The Z30 will be available at Bell, TELUS, MTS, Sasktel, Future Shop and Best Buy.

Bell and telus it is then.

Telus? Oooh boy. I can't catch a break with stupid Rogers. At least Telus phones are cheapest to unlock.

I guess it is Telus for me too

Really? Rogers was my favorite provider. In my experience they have better services than bell. I found rogers plans more suitable than telus so not sure about telus.

Anyways.. why cant rogers just sell the z30 on consignment...

That way they can keep everyone happy...

slomo408

I used to be on Rogers, then I moved out west and their coverage went downhill. While I wouldn't say and of the big 3 are good Telus has met my needs.

techanic

Best coverage: Rogers for the east, Telus/Bell for the west.

ThaMunsta

Why do people care? I like rogers a lot and if they don't sell it we can probably buy unlocked off of BlackBerry's website at some point... hopefully

Well...keep liking them...
One should wonder sometimes "what do I really get for my money I pay them monthly?"
I've been with them for 12 years, there was a time when I paid the close to 3G per year...never got a call with a promotion or a discount for being such a "good customer", not necessarily for the money I would've saved, but for the simple feeling of being appreciated.
When I started cancelling my services, they suddenly remembered me, and started throwing all king of offers and deals at me..."too late" I said, and asked couple questions I knew there's no good answer to...I'm better of without them...
...so keep liking them...until they like you back...

j0ec00l

Bell is exactly the same. When I left Bell, suddenly they were offering me all kinds of deals.

swtnotZ10

Yeah, I've been with Telus for 5 years now and I have had no problems. I'm satisfied with the price for the coverage I get. Plus they are quick to roll out new OS.

TheStoryUp

So can I unlock my Telus Z10 and move to koodo or Virgin? Telus is a rip off. I can get the same plan at Virgin with an extra gig of data for $20 less than Telus. I figure it out that it would be cheaper to buy out my contract with Telus 400$ and move to Virgin for 27 months. I would save $20 a month (27x20=540$) which would pay for the cost of buying out my contract and still save $140.

Anyway is it possible to unlock the phone and transfer it?

WHY?

A few hundred tweets or emails isn't going to come close to the FACT that BlackBerry devices are not selling well even in Canadia. If BlackBerry isn't even getting behind the Z30, when should a carrier? Have you seen any ads in Canada for the Z30?

edriss

No ads yet, IT'S NOT RELEASED YET!

+1 true, you want to advertise your product before it comes out to bring the hype up. At least a 'z30, coming to rogers...are you ready?' or smthng along those lines. BlackBerry is doomed=(

Posted via Z10STL100-3/10.2.0.1725

MwineBBVet

At this point the hype method is no longer working. BB is not a consumer centric smartphone player. That is not part of their DNA, and never was, at least in North America. It was all spillover from corporate penetration. Now they are acknowledging this and doing direct sell and focusing on uptake from corporate and government. And that is what will save them (plus managing all those Android, and Apple phones...and maybe later Windows phones if corps and governments allow WP)

If a customer doesn't voice their displeasure at this, then how will though even know? The only other way would be to leave them, but that usually doesn't involve a survey telling them why. If enough people legitimately want the Z30 on Rogers, then Rogers may reconsider and eventually offer it - not likely but at least they will know of the demand.

But if Blackberry keeps on sucking, anyone has the right to feel like it's time to abandon ship and go to another phone.
HeyyySleepyyy has an opinion as much as anyone and no he is not trolling.
Z30 is not picked up by rogers.....not a good sign.
Companies like then one I am with are also considering going iPhone...so be it.
BlackBerry is maybe better but so what......it is not selling....it may be going private...things are not well.

8 months ago, Thorsten Heins stood in a Rogers store in Toronto to proudly celebrate the arrival of the Z10 amongst great fanfare. The Canadian tech icon appeared to have turned a corner and had a bright future ahead.

Now Rogers passes on BlackBerry's first 5-inch touchscreen while Thor desperately searches for a buyer for the battered company, motivated by a $55 million windfall.

Don't go there! The carriers are trying to play god. The Z30 is now the top BlackBerry device. How could they not offer it to their customers?
At least T-Mobile is offering it on-line but not in-store. Rogers isn't carrying it at all.

barney009

It's not much better here in the UK. When I went to get Z10 in February, carriers were advising me to stay away from Blackberry and were pushing Samsung - needless to say they are the biggest sellers at the moment. Most consumers unfortunately listen to the sales people - even though they are idiots!

Posted via CB10

mifinn

If Samsung pays commission to the sales guy on each device sold , they will definitely tell you to stay away from Blackberry and this is the reality :)

Posted via CB10

joelajean

Yep same in Canada.... Sales staff only support Samsung and iPhone !!! From my perspective BlackBerry should have thrown in cash, provide training to the carrier sales staff and even give out free testing devices... After all they are the one selling the devices !

My buddy is in sales and they sell industrial equipment. They deal with quite a few manufacturer but one in particular always provide them training on there newest product... so in the end which one does he sell ????

paper_monkey

um... because they are already taking a bath on the Z10's they have sitting in stock that have been written down.. I'm unhappy two, I really wanted to upgrade a Z30 but what sense does it make to buy what most consumers will percieve as a slightly bigger Z10 when they can't even sell the 10's they've got...?

nt300

For your information, Rogers sold the most Z10's in Canada versus all Canadian Carriers. So the Z10 is there hot seller, as for not carrying the Z30? That alone is a bad business move and many that want the Z30 will leave Rogers.

darkehawke

Then that should make it even more worrying as they can see more facts about BlackBerry sales then you can

It's not a hot seller though. Even for Rogers.

Perhaps my wording was off. But if someone is looking to punish Rogers and cancel their services due to a lack of z30 then the real target of frustration should be Rogers.
Of course we are all loyal BlackBerry fans... we are posting on crackberry, I'd love to get a z30 at some point, but in no way does my blame lie with Rogers.
If the brand sold, carriers would be falling over themselves to carry the phones. They don't sell and this is the reality.. no availability at all or direct sales as has started to happen in the US.

While I understand what you are saying, the flip side of the equation is now Telus and Bell can differentiate themselves. I vote with my dollar, my dollar will be moving by the end of October to either Telus or Bell, depending on who has the best offer. Many others will be locked into contracts, maybe Rogers is counting on that. No bad mouthing required, just a single purchase.

Posted via CB10

Wireless Gadget

I think both are to blame, Rogers may have picked up too many Z10's, Q10's and Q5's and are now worried about clearing the inventories. BlackBerry's bad PR is causing more fear on the minds of all consumers and is now driving more away from any BB10 device. The BB10 has potential but is currently surrounded by so much bad PR, nobody is thinking straight. Rogers can't officially admin they messed up not because they don't want to support BB10 / BlackBerry, they are fully supported but they have TOO MUCH inventory to clear and can't take on additional quantities until they clear their current inventories.

ROGERS - start selling the Q10 and Z10 at reduced rates (fire sale) AND off contract so the rest of Rogers loyalists / for those who want them can get them off subsidy, this will clear your inventories!!!!

BlackBerry - make the Z30 available online for anyone on the Rogers network to be able to buy directly from you. Give us what we want!!!! Give it to us only on a discount and you can then prove to yourself and Rogers there is demand on their network. Gotta KEEP MOVING!!!!!

I sold my Z10 recently in anticipation of the Z30 on the Rogers network, I LOVE my Z10, I wanted the larger screen and better specs. Rogers's news on a Friday was NOT what I wanted to hear!

maybe they will pass it on to Fido. or maybe they aren't seeing enough BB10 sales to justify carrying a 4th model

Your comment at least has some rational to it, so thanks for that. Do your homework folks to find out what service provider best suits your needs. But seeing as Rogers is out, Bellus is the only alternatives left.

If Rogers is passing this up you likely will not see the Z30 pass down to subsidiaries.

I actually like Telus. I left Rogers after 5 years because of poor reception (they suck in Nova Scotia) and have been with Telus for 11 years. I have no major complaints with them so far.

Yeah Bell you won't find to be much better. Just get an unlocked one, and be no one's slave!

You should try Virgin or Koodo. I know Virgin is Bell and Koodo is Telus but they are better at customer service since they are run as seperate companies.

Or Fido, a subsidiary company oof Rogers.

Glad I'm with Telus :)

Although I'm in the States, not cool to see a Canadian carrier not carrying a BlackBerry device.

Looks like I'll be switching carriers once I'm eligible for an upgrade. Shame on you Rogers. To think all that empty space in your stores...

BlackBerry for leaders, not followers.

I've been with Telus since day one when they were Clear-NET. Great company and have given me a wicked business plan on my Z-10. I will be definitely buying the Z-30 from them. Rogers has made a grave mistake by ignoring carrying this device.

I hate Telus as much as any of the others. A couple of years ago I paid them over $200 to get out of my contract.

Brutal Efficiency

That's cheap.

I paid $800 to get out of my Vodafone contract, that was cheap!! There was only a few months left.

BlackBerry & Nintendo Alliance. Bring Pokémon to BlackBerry 10.

solitude1984

Maybe it's cheap for you, but it's not cheap for me! $200 is expensive .... $800 is crazy!

Been with Telus since Clear-NET too. :) Clear-NET had excellent customer service. Telus has always offered great service. I'm very surprised Rogers will not be offering BlackBerry's Z30 really, after all, the Z30 is BlackBerry best phone to date. IMO. No doubts Rogers will lose some customers over this. As they should.

I hearted Clearnet! Not as much a fan of TELUS but still better than Rogers.

I love when my northern friends calls it robbers...makes me giggle...

Of course every Cdn news agency is just reporting this negative. Not one is reporting the Z30 being a premium device with best battery run time in its class or the awesome oled screen etc. Just the negative. No wonder BlackBerry is struggling.....every media outlet in North America is out to sink the company.

Maybe BlackBerry should spend $1billion and by a news agency!!!

BB does it to themselves. This company is so arrogant, I bet this is news to them, they probably assumed the device would be supported at home.

Graheem

Because they are all asleep iSheep.

textmint2013

U know what when I bought my Z10 they were telling me it was a premium device. Now they are telling me it's entry? BlackBerry deserves this. They need to shut this company down for screwing it's customer, shareholders and loyal fans. Been with blackberry for 7 years but my Z10 is the last. Screw u guys I'm going home.

iwasspartacus

Yup. This is no one's fault except RIM. They have made numerous 'business decisions' that have negatively impacted their stakeholders and now it is happening to them.

It's almost like they screwed a number of relationships when they were the dominant player in the industry and now that hubris is biting them on the ass. Hard.

Where is home? The Z10 Is a premium device, cost more to make than the iPhone 5 did. The write down is why it will sell as an entry level phone. I wish they would give them away, they need to get the phones out there. Just a reminder, the Z10 has duel core 1.5 Gb processor and 2 Gb of Ram. I phone 5 had 1.3 Gb duel core with 1 Gb of Ram. Even the 5s only has 1gb of Ram and no one Calls it an entry level device.

If I tell you your device is a time machine would you believe that as well? The Z10 is the best entry level phone there is, and it beats the top tiered phones of the competition. FACT. ( unless your one of those people who think scrolling with eyeballs is top shelf innovation).

Sad, but true. BlackBerry is the media's whipping boy rnow..

I would hardly consider the Z30 a premium device.

If people actually care about BB as they claim here, they'll stop whining like little bitches and leave Rogers for another carrier.

But it's not fair!

I switched from Rogers to Koodo years ago. I'd rather send smoke signals or carrier pigeons than deal with Rogers.

Hate rogers. Bell isn't any better, but at least it's not rogers. They even ruined skydome by calling it "rogers centre".
