If you are looking to pick up a new BlackBerry 10 smartphone here's something interesting to consider. Right now, for whatever reason, all white BlackBerry 10 smartphones are on sale through the ShopBlackBerry store. No matter which device you choose from the available devices, as long as it's white they're all $100 off their original asking price.

We've gone through the shop and it appears as though Canada is the only exemption from the deal (And regions with no white stock available such as France) for some reason. Want a white Z30? $399.99. Want a white Q10? $299.99. Want a white Z10? $199.99. Want a white BlackBerry Q5? $249.99. No coupon codes are needed and nothing special needs to be entered at checkout.

Sure, those prices are higher than what you can get them for on a carrier deal but they're unlocked and can move from any compatible carrier to another, arguably making the total cost of ownership less than a carrier subsidized version in some scenarios. We're not sure when the sale went live but, as of July 6th it wasn't running. Anyone going to be grabbing a device or two? Sadly, no white Passports available.

Whiiite Power!!!

Swiped via CB10 with my T-Mobile USA (Only T-Mo rep still pushing  ) new  BlackBerry Z30 (STA100-5), son! The Thor's Hammer of phones! Member of "Club Z30 "..... the most exclusive club in mobile. Once you go BlackBerry, everything else is wack-berry! #longestsignatureeverthatishortenedabit

There's a fool where ever you go.....

I only wish for Bla1ze to open up a good Internet can of whoop ass for them. I can't believe people coming back with these responses.

This was completely tongue in cheek. It's an inventory issue. They have excess white stock. I have heard this anecdotally already

Ra... Phone... cist? Ughh

But does that mean people would rather buy a Black... BlackBerry than a while one? Personally though I prefer Black Q10's and Z30's as both of them sport the Glass Weave back IMHO.

I had black Z10's and a black Z30. Got myself a white Z30 recently & I LOVE it!! It looks very sleek and modern!

I was surprised that the back isn't the carbon weave. It’s slippier, so I got that flip closed case where the back is replaced with a great leather one. MUCH better!

Posted via CB10 using my Z30.

Interesting about the excess inventory. I got a great discount from my carrier on my white q10. About half the price compared to the black one. I just thought it was a generous promotion, but I guess this makes more sense lol.
I lucked out, because I prefer it in white.

Frosty white Q10/10.2.1.3247

But anyway, are any early adopters appalled by the fact that the Z10 is cheaper than the Q5.. cuz I certainly am..

Posted via CB10

Nope... early adopters pay premium to get to use new technology first. I got my Z10 on first day. Never regretted. Then I got a second Z10 at 150$ lol

Posted via CB10

This is what happens when you build more Z10 phones that the market wants. They have to sell them at whatever price people will pay.

Posted via CB10

The Shop BlackBerry (Canada) site is broken. They have an add for the White Z10 $100 off. Click add and it automatically takes you to the Shop BlackBerry (USA) page. Fix your site please

Technically it flipped to the US page before you saw the price discount. If you switch to the phone page then select Canada again. It will show you the full non-sale price.

Broken, yes.

Posted via CB10

The more I look at the white Z30, the more I despise Verizon for only giving us one color choice, period. Would it have killed them to carry it!? You already had the exclusive for it!

Still love my Z30...but what if?

Posted via CB10

Wow I just ordered a black z30 and a black z10!!! Could have saved 200.00!!! But I love black!!!!

Posted via CB10

So Canada is exempt ".........because those prices are already $100 lower than everywhere else". Really? I've been keeping an eye on the pricing for some time and they're the same as the US site. Unless you're including the $100 off coupon that expired at the end of March and wasn't applicable to the Z30. I'm confused!

Just tested the code. Works on the Canadian store... do you people not realize it's case sensitive like all codes?

Posted via CB10

Blaize. With all due respect you need to proof read your articles better. Very first sentence....

Posted via CB10

Why does Q5 cost only 50$ less than Q10????
Seems they need to price better all around...

Posted via CB10

Why give the home country an advantage? After all we already support them significantly more than many other countries. So why show the loyal customers some love? Let's jack em for every cent we can!!!

Posted via CB10

As mentioned read through the comments to find a code that works for -$100 off the Z10 or Q10 for us Canadians (any colour) doesn't work for the Z30 though

Posted via CB10

Q5 is 100 dollars too high. I guess BlackBerry would rather keep them in a warehouse than sell them to Americans.

Z30 / STA100-5 / 10.2.1.3247 / T-Mobile USA

I totally agree. I always thought the plastic, snap together "entry version" Q5 was always overpriced compared to the Q10. Like buying a Volkswagen for Porsche prices. Looks like they still want oil prices for the salt mine.

Posted via CB10 on my Q10

Verizon dropped the gosh-darn ball on offering the white Z30.
I would have melted miles of

::geek alert::
coaxials
::geek alert cancelled::

trying to buy one!

Posted via CB10

Is it for good or for a límited time!!! Answer quick whats the world that way i can find the money now or Take my time

Posted via CrackBerry App

Oh ma. This is soooo tempting... imma have to decide soon why BlackBerry do you do this after you've shown me the passport why???!!

"I love when people boast about their phones...like its a passing contest"

I use the Z30 on AT&T. I just don’t get LTE in most areas. 4G seems good enough for me but your opinion may differ from mine.

Posted via CB10

Hopefully I have some money to burn soon and get that White Z10 to contrast with my Black Q10.

"It doesn't matter if you're black or white"

-MJ RIP.

Posted via CB10

I bought a white Z10 cheap back in May. They're cheaper because the perception is nobody wants them. Didn't worry me, but it looks quite kewl. Didn’t realise they also came in all white (mine has a black bezel).

Posted via CB10

BLACKBERRY, IF YOU WANT ME AS A BB10 USER IN CANADA THEN YOU NEED TO GIVE US ALL THE $100 OFF CURRENT PRICE OPTION ON THE CDN SHOPBLACKBERRY SITE.

Posted via the Android CrackBerry App!

No one else needs a special code, that most ppl would not need access to, so why do Canadians. Is total BS.

Posted via CB10

Use it if you want $100 off, or just keep whining about entering a few characters. Wouldn't want anyone to hurt their fingers....ugghh

Posted via CB10

Oh come on BlackBerry! You are making me feel left out of the party with Verizon not price matching this discount. Let me buy a Z10 at the price you are setting!

Don't know what site u guys r using but I just tried it again and SAVE100BB148 still works in the store. That's how I got my white bbz10 and my husband's black z10

Posted via CB10

Thanks SnowKittee the code works. Shipping and taxes brings the total to $239.53

Only in Canada will we need to enter coupons and mail in rebates. Grrr.

Unlocked white Z10 will be on its way.

Posted via the Android CrackBerry App!

Bestbuy Mobile sells Z10s for only $199.00 using Telus

OS 10.2.1.3175 - White Z10 Bell - My FIRST full touch screen phone.

Thanks, Bla1ze!!! I have been looking for a good deal on a Z10 to see if I like the all touch. (in case my replacement Q10 starts double typing). I also wanted to get it unlocked from Shopblackberry.com.
I just ordered it. I don't particularly love white phones, but it will be in a case anyway.
I just hope it works OK on AT&T.
Now my black Q10 will have a white partner :-)

Posted on my Q10

Man... I love the White ones. I still remember when I got my Blackberry Pearl - which is one of my all time favorites. Too bad I already have all three of them. These are darn good prices!

Posted via CB10

Ugh. I just bought another white Z30 a couple weeks ago from Shop BlackBerry before the drop. Good thing the profit goes directly to BlackBerry!

Posted via CB10

I've always wanted my Q10 white, didn't know how I ended up with black when I clearly had an option from my carrier. But I'm still loving mine though :)

Posted via CB10

The white is cool. But no white after Labor day. lol. BlackBerry making room for the new blackberries coming this fall.

Posted via CB10

Wowwwww!!!! Buying a z30 Friday!!!!!!!! Done deal. Upgrading from Q10! This is why I love this company. Everything from 99 cents movies to reasonably priced NEW phones without contracts!!!!

Posted via CB10

Been interested in possibly getting a BB phone, but not in dire need of a phone right now. But this is a great sale.

Do it. You won't be disappointed. The operating system is leaps and bounds ahead of android and ios. After a day if peeking and swiping you won't be able to go back.

Posted via CB10

Had a black Z10 but I am now rocking a white Z30 and wow what a difference! Z30 definitely worth it. The huge screen and huge battery alone...but I just can't put this phone down (especially with the leaked 10.3 OS which runs all my android apps). I was thinking of picking up a q10 if they were available for 299 in Canada... not sure why BlackBerry would not show the Canadian market the same love as the rest of the world. So what does everyone else think is the Q10 worth it or should I wait for the Classic or Passport which are probably gonna be pricey when they are released.

Posted via CB10

So help me understand..
Why doesn't the BlackBerry Store offer CDMA phones? Why do we only have Verizon or Amazon to work with here?

Posted via CB10

Now that I ordered my white Z10 unlocked from shopblackberry, will I get OS updates as they are released, or do I still have to wait for AT&T because I have an AT&T sim?

No You don't have to wait for at&t i purchased a Z10 And used it on Claro central américa And got 10.2.1 before some other folks around the world.

Posted via CrackBerry App

Even though I know I should be saving for a Passport, I've always wanted a white Q10...hmmm

Posted via CB10

At £430 in the sale (approx $730) the Z30 is still priced waaaaaaay too high in the UK

Posted via the Android CrackBerry App!

Love the white in all blackberry devices. But white can become overwhelming and get old quicker then a black one.

Posted via CB10

US buyers: black & white unlocked Berries on amazon are comparable to this White Sale from the mothership. Take a looksee.

10 new white Z10s for my 10 new employees! It may be part of the write-off residual phones, but nonetheless, a BlackBerry; new, clean & fast, resilient device ROCKS. Nothing like it.

Posted via CB10

I just bought a white Z30 on Monday, so price was definitely $499. I have been on the phone with Digital River and they tell me that they will process for a refund for the difference. I would never have known, so THANKS TO CRACKBERRY!!!

Ha, comme d'habitude, nothing in France, bloody hell...even though I'm quite happy with my Lumia 625, I would have loved a Z30 to bulge my pockets... :)

I am visiting the US ( New York) and it is extremely sad to see that there is nothing blackberry in the stores that I have visited and I have been to a substantial amount. John Chen appears to be failing big time on the US front. One would have thought that as an American he would have been trying his best to get some market share from the largest economy in the world.

Posted via CB10

The US failed BlackBerry (although BlackBerry didn't help).

Chen is building BlackBerry back up all around the world right now and will revisit the US when the time is right and the footings are solid.

Posted via CB10

Given that white devices were always priced higher than the black, is this just eqauting the price for both colours?

BlaQberry10

Can't believe they are selling the white Z10 for only 159,99€ in France... waaaaaah!!!

Posted via CB10 using my Z10STL100-2/10.2.1.3175

I got the white Z10 the first day it came out and bought it outright. Didn't regret it one bit. The reason I got it in white was that I wanted to show my friends and coworkers that I got a new phone while my thumb was covering the BlackBerry name.
First question I got, "you finally got iPhone? I can't believe it."
"Well believe it" then I removed my thumb then the shock, horror and sadness went over their faces. The only way I'd ever get an iPhone is:
1) if all the phone manufacturer went out of business and apple was the only one left.
2)there are no used old BlackBerry phones on sale on kijiji or ebay
3) no used android phones on kijiji or ebay for
4) my old BlackBerry phones were stolen from my house
5) if there were no used non smartphone for sale
6) if my company bought me the iPhone

There's more but the list is too long

Posted via CB10

Funny. Sounds like right after hell freezes over and someone forces it into his cold dead hands.

Oh, and me too.

Posted via CB10

Any idea why Canada was left out of the deal. I would love to pick up a white Z30 for my girlfriend

Posted via CB10

It seems the SAVE100BB148 code only works for the Z10 and Q10 on the Canadian site. Z30 don't get a discount. I've heard the stock of Z30s is getting very low in Canada.

This deal is exactly what I was looking for so I could snag a white Z30.

Sadly, the first deal isn't in Canada.

Just my luck!

Posted via CB10

200$ in the states, but $300 in Canada for the Z10. That's hardly fair, seeing that RIM is a Canadian company..

Posted via CB10

Use the discount code save100bb148 on the Canadian site the $299 becomes $199. Ca.blackberry.com

I'll be getting my white Z10 shortly!

Posted via the Android CrackBerry App!

Dang, i just bought a black Z30 2 weeks ago from shopblackberry.com for 399. I'd make the move to white if the white Z30 had the same back as the black. Have read too many complaints on here and other sites about he back getting dingy and being slippery.

Nobody has asked the question yet so I'll be the noob...

Can I buy it from the States with a US address and use it in Canada on my Rogers network?

Posted via CB10

Really? U can buy BB10 @ ca.blackberry. com use discount code SAVE100BB148. I ordered my Z10 early this morning.

Posted via the Android CrackBerry App!

Seriously Canada is excluded! There's goes my idea of getting a new phone.

Unless do American phones work in Canada?

Posted via CB10

I bought a black Z10 this morning with the code quoted earlier for the Canada store for $199 (plus taxes and shipping).

So for those looking for the Z10 or Q10 in Canada just look back for the code.

Posted via CB10

Well if you check Amazon they are selling Z30 for $399 brand new, unlocked, both black and white - orders fulfilled by Amazon, free shipping etc...

Why not just buy a white skin for like 5 times less?? I would have to be drunk to buy a another phone for color only. Much less if it will be confused with the enemy. :p

Posted via CB10

What's happened to Z10 here Lagos Nigeria, we can't find it in the market anymore. Did BlackBerry stop manufacturing. Not even on the online shops. Is there anyhow I can get it pls.

Well looks like Im coming back to BB. Just purchased a white z10. Turns out my corp plan cannot be renewed since it was a 3 year and I dont want to end up paying $10 more a month for half the data. For $199 think its a great deal especially since I can use it on any carrier pretty much. Cant wait to get it!

Do these phones work on Verizon as well? All it mentions is GSM. I have my Q10 on Verizon and my Z10 is on T-mobile. It would be nice to be able use the unlocked Z30 on both networks. Can someone help me out.

Posted via CB10

I've wanted a Q10 for some time but struggled with paying all that cash after buying a Z10, glad to see it was dropped to $299 and then to be shot down as I am in Canada! How to turn a long time customer off a brand.

Posted via CB10

Im looking at the phones on the shopblackberry web site and the White Q10 is listed to work on gsm networks except Tmobile whys that?

I waited so long for a White Z30 I couldn't wait anymore i just went out and bought a black or gray or whatever you want to call it.... just wish i had that all white Z30 m. G........ from White Z10 to black Z30 it's a good thing the phone is that good!!!! :)

Posted via CB10

I just got mine in. Its an STL100-3. The box was flopping around in the shipping box, the bubble pack was all flat. The box for the phone has been double taped, makes me think it was a return or repair.
