Verizon opens preorders for BlackBerry Q10; Devices to ship by June 6th

By Adam Zeis on 30 May 2013 07:59 am EDT

Well, Verizon has finally fired up their preorders for the BlackBerry Q10. We've know for a while that June is when the US carriers would be getting in on the Q10 fun, we just weren't sure as to exactly when. 

Just yesterday, T-Mobile announced that the Q10 would be arriving on June 5th, and now Verizon is offering up preorders with a "ship by" date of June 6th. That means the official release should be right around the end of next week, but we'll certainly find out more on that in the next few days. 

The Verizon Q10 is available in black or the exclusive white version and will run you $200 on a 2-year contract. Those of you looking to pick one up sans-contract will have to cough up around $600 for the privilege.

If you're planning on picking up a Q10 from Verizon, head over to their preorder page now at the link below.

Verizon opens preorders for BlackBerry Q10; Devices to ship by June 6th


I got my 3 phones on order.

I just hope that when I activate them there aren't issues. :)

EDIT: WOW. I have never done that before. :)

Awesome, so I'm not interested in the Z10 so AT&T was the first to carry that phone. I AM interested in the Q10, so of course that means AT&T will be the last to carry that phone. Yay, thank you AT&T, you know exactly what I want and then take your sweet time with it. Just like with the Bold 9900...

I thought AT&T was first out for the 9900. I thought I remember playing with it in the store and still had to wait 2 weeks or more to order mine on Verizon.

I hope this means that Verizon will also be pushing out a Z10 upgrade that resolves the random reboots. I now have one friend who gave up and returned his Z10 because it was rebooting several times a day with no side loaded apps, in the middle of calls. Verizon refused to give him a new device... Bums me out because he gave BlackBerry a second chance and Verizon's slow updates made him lose faith. :-(

Wth!!! I went in before the 10 day exchange/return and I got a new device. DOwn to one reboot every week or so now. I wonder why they wouldn't give him a new one?

and yet AT&T will still probably release it before Sprint Customers even get a whimper of a release date. you should all try being in our shoes before you start bitching.

I wanted to find out whether this is an unlocked phone (i.e, when I travel to foreign countries, whether I will be able to use a local SIM card from a Local Carrier.
(Also do I have to pay extra for unlocking)
