Yep... After 15+ years with Verizon, if Verizon does not have the phone I want when my contract is up will have to take my business where I can get the phone I want.

I'm just want to know ahead of time is Verizon moving away from Blackberry and will just offer IPhones and Android's Devices? Because When I joined Verizon I asked will you always supported the latest and greatest Blackberry devices and I was assure that Verizon and blackberry had a very strong relationship and growth would continue with new offering from blackberry.
I think users here want a phone with a large screen, with a great physical keyboard. (I am personally sooo over typing on glass) An innovative feature such as the touch capacitive keyboard. But most of all a phone that is build for productivity, not some portable advertisement billboard machine Android is or a bendy iphone. When someone chooses BlackBerry there is a piece of mind knowing that there information is safe and secure.
Well, I am very confused; I just received a text message right on my VERIZON Blackberry Z10 informing me that the Blackberry Passport is available. If I follow the link(s), I guess to the official Blackberry store, and spend over $500 ++, will the device work, or just be an attractive paperweight?
Frank, No the passport that is being sold on Shopblackberry.com and Amazon.com is not compatible with the Verizon network. Someone has already tried activating it on Verizon and it does not work. It was not expected to work because the band VZW uses for 3G is not on the phone. In 2016 when Verizon moves entirely to LTE than it will work. There is no way that text you got was from Verizon. I do not know where you signed up to get alerts maybe it came from BlackBerry?
iI'm very disappointed that the Passport isn't coming to Verizon. I'll keep four lines on Verizon but move my line to at&t for this device. I used to need Verizon for coverage but the others have done a good job catching up and i now have LTE available at home and work from each of the big four.
