Sprint is getting a little “uncarrier” themselves with a new promotion that offers to pay your early termination fees if you’re willing to switch to them. You can get up to $350 for every line terminated when making the switch; just snap a picture of your last bill, send it to Sprint, and they’ll send you a Visa card with the cash on it. There are a few terms and conditions here and there, but you can read all of that at Sprint’s site starting tomorrow. The promotion will run from April 4 until May 8.

Even though Sprint is way late to the Q10 game, they dropped a new commercial that shows off over 90 seconds of Q10 goodness. It's honestly one of the best spots for the Q10 (or BlackBerry 10) yet and it makes me wish that someone had thrown it up months ago. The ad itself shows off the Q10's Super AMOLED display and keyboard as well as BlackBerry Balance, the Hub, BBM and more.

If you've been holding out for the Sprint version of the BlackBerry Q10, it's now go time as the carrier has just pushed the device live on their site for ordering. The press release put out by Sprint previously noted the device would be available for $199.99 but the online version is showing the device available for $100 with a new two-year contract.

The difference being new customers are getting the $100 pricing. If you're looking to place an order for one, you sadly only get one color to choose from and that's the black version. According to the site, shipments will begin arriving at people's doorsteps 2-5 business days after the order has been placed. Anyone already placed their order?

Aug 26, 2013 BlackBerry Q10 available from Sprint August 30th for $199.99

After a long, long wait, Sprint will finally be releasing the BlackBerry Q10 on August 30th. While all other US carriers have had the Q10 for months now, Sprint will be offering it up in stores and online this Friday. 

Sprint had passed on the BlackBerry Z10 all together so the Q10 will be the first BlackBerry 10 in their arsenal, though they are said to be offering up the Z30 later this fall. The Q10 will be available for $199 and users can pair the new device with unlimited service on the My Way or My All-in plans.

What say you Sprint users - will you be upgrading to a new Q10?

Aug 09, 2013 Sprint BlackBerry Q10 landing page invites pre-registration

Sprint BlackBerry Q10

After catching a less-than-official glimpse of the Sprint-branded BlackBerry Q10, we've caught wind of a proper pre-registration page. It doesn't mention device pricing, though Sprint's touting their unlimited $80 and $110 plans. Rumor has it that we'll see this thing on store shelves on August 30, and with a proper landing page available, that date is seeming more likely. 

It's taken eons for Sprint to offer a BlackBerry 10 device, and it's hard to say why, exactly. They passed on the Z10, though other U.S. carriers happily snatched up both. Sprint customers, have you been itching to upgrade? Has avaiability of the Z10 and Q10 elsewhere tempted you to switch? 

Those interested in getting updates about Sprint's Q10 availability can hit up their landing page, which also includes a tour of the big device features.

May 09, 2013 Sprint gearing up to show off the BlackBerry Q10 at BlackBerry Live

Sprint was scoffed at by many on the news that they would be skipping the BlackBerry Z10 completely in favor of the new BlackBerry Q10. However with the Q10 set to land on US soil in just a few weeks (hopefully) Sprint has announced that they will be on hand at BlackBerry Live in Orlando next week to show off the new device. 

While they haven't made an official announcement as to the actual release of the Q10, they did post some news for next week.

Join Sprint at BlackBerry Live, May 14-16 in Orlando. You'll get the latest on BlackBerry 10 and can take new BlackBerry devices for a spin. Stop by the Sprint booth and discover the power of BlackBerry devices paired with Truly UnlimitedSM data.

Sprint plans to offer Blackberry 10 smartphones, including innovative features like a best-in-class browser, a rich application ecosystem and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities.

So it does look like Sprint will have a decent amount of exposure during BlackBerry Live and we can hope to hear more on their Q10 release next week. The fact that they say Sprint devices leaves us wondering if there is more to this.

Fingers crossed that Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile will chip in some good news as well.

Sprint BB10

It hasn't been a secret that Sprint has been totally quiet about any plans to carry the BlackBerry Z10, and now it further confirmation points to them skipping the full-touch Z10 all together. In their original press release regarding BlackBerry 10, Sprint stated plans to carry the BlackBerry Q10 however there was no mention of the Z10 at all. We had hopes that they were just keeping it on the down-low, but it looks like the Z10 won't be landing on Sprint at all.

Bring the BlackBerry Z10 to Sprint!

Well that didn't take long. A loyal Sprint customer has already started a petition trying and convince the US carrier to launch the BlackBerry Z10. Not really a surprise seeing how vocal users are being about the lack of Z10 support in CrackBerry's forums.

Earlier this week Sprint announced their plans to carry the full qwerty BlackBerry Q10 Smartphone, but the press release failed to mention the BlackBerry Z10 at all. Not cool. Look, I get that Sprint basically loses money on every non-iPhone full touchscreen device they sell (due to the silly agreement they signed with Apple), but the BlackBerry Z10 is hot and every other major US carrier is picking it up. Not carrying it is just wrong and a disservice to their own loyal customers.

Sprint went official with their BlackBerry 10 plans today. Though they didn't say anything about pricing or dates, Sprint confirmed that they'll have the BlackBerry Q10. There's no mention of the BlackBerry Z10 here, which is too bad, but I'm a big fan of the physical keyboard.  Verizon announced availability today too, along with a bunch of international carriers. Anyone interested in getting set up with Sprint for their BlackBerry Q10 can hit up their landing page. Any takers?

*UPDATE* - We've now independently confirmed it as well.

We saw your story on BlackBerry 10 today. We wanted to let you know that Sprint plans to bring BlackBerry 10 to our customers later this year. We will share more details soon.

With time ticking down until the BlackBerry 10 launch event, more and more carriers are coming out and letting the world know if they will be carrying the new devices. Plenty of carriers in Canada are on board as well as AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile in the US. We don't have official launch dates or info for any carrier, but we do know who has pledged to carry BlackBerry 10 at launch. It was unclear as to if Sprint would be coming along for the BlackBerry 10 ride, but things look to be cleared up on that front now as well.

Motorola Admiral

Here's some Friday fun. As forums member kjjb0204 spotted, Sprint looks to be cheating a little bit in one of their newest commercials. Seen here from the TV ad is a Motorola Admiral - however that's not Android on the screen. If you look closely you can see that the display is indeed showing a BlackBerry settings screen - oops!. Granted the average user probably wouldn't be able to spot the difference while watching the ad, but you're not fooling anyone here, Sprint! We've seen plenty of goofs like this in ads, posters and print over the years, but this could be the first one from a TV ad. Rest assured it most likely won't be the last time it happens either.

Aug 06, 2012 Sprint excited to see what BlackBerry 10 can do but unsure of how it fits into their product roadmap
60 Comments

Sprint Logo

Aside from the various other challenges RIM is facing currently with BlackBerry 10, they still need to ensure they have carriers on-board for launch. We've heard many times before that RIM was working with and showing off BlackBerry 10 to various carriers and the overall consensus was that they're all excited for the next generation operating system from RIM but Sprint has now opted to be a bit more vocal about it. As noted by Phonescoop, Sprint spokesperson David Owen stated:

"I would not count RIM out. RIM keeps reinventing itself. BlackBerry 10, as we've looked at it, has some really good characteristics. We're excited to see what it can do. The challenge is RIM took on everything. They took on the entire gambit: the storefront, the operating system, the manufacturing, and this caused them to be slow in reacting to the changes in the market. We don't think we will see RIM get back to the levels they were two years ago. So we have to figure out where they'll be going forward"

Sprint themselves haven't exactly been doing the greatest these days, so we'll just avoid the pot calling the kettle black comments and stick to the basics. RIM has an already existing user base, many of which are actually hanging on to see what BlackBerry 10 will bring. Sprint will find a spot on their roadmap for BlackBerry 10 even if they take a cautious route.
