I'm wondering if AT&T will allow pre-orders for Blackberry 10. In addition, I am hoping there will be some incentives for current customers to upgrade or trade-in existing blackberry. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get a BB10 at a contract price. I'm even willing to extend my contract with them!

I canceled my two Verizon lines after 12 years due to their lack of BlackBerry support. I've been with at&t for over 3 years now, and the stores by me completely ignore the BlackBerry and it's significant updates that consumers would LOVE, like Wifi Calling your BBM contacts, NFC (This was on the Bold and Curve long before the other phones started using it) etc... They also leave the pricing on the Bold absurdly high, and wonder why they're not selling when they're placed next to an iPhone4 at .99 on a 2 year. Wake up folks.
The point is this- BlackBerry 10 IS a game changer and if they don't get on board and they end up delaying the launch, they can forget about my upgrades, and can expect me to cancel all four of my lines.
IPhones now have the oldest operating system in the market.
The Android phones are all eye-candy, and have serious security flaws, and horrible file and power management but at&t continues to push, promote, and pre-order those brands. ENOUGH of that.
January 30th, BlackBerry 10 is being unveiled to the world, and at&t needs to be on board without any delays. No excuses.

Why are the Canadian carriers offering the new Blackberry 10 devices within a few days after launch, and the US carriers are making us wait until March or April? In the UK, the new Blackberry 10 devices are offered right now.
And I see nothing on AT&T's site offering any pre-order information.
I don't understand AT&T. I have an HTC OneX and have been waiting forever for the Jelly Bean update. This device has been upgraded to Jelly Bean in other countries, including Canada. But us suckers in the US have to wait. Same for the Blackberries.
The Blackberry 10 devices should be available now. If this garbage keeps up, I may spring for a Nexus 4 and get a prepaid card and ditch AT&T.

I was thinking that I too don't want to wait until March or whenever to get a new Blackberry 10 phone and I came up with an idea to circumvent AT&T if they drag their feet!
I have been due for an upgrade for a long time now, but have been waiting for the new Q10 (BB10 with physical keyboard)
As soon as they are released elsewhere and they hit ebay at a normal price (you can get a Z10 for about $800 now!)
I will just figure out the best hardware upgrade that AT&T will offer me at the time, then go and sell that NEW phone on ebay,
Then take that cash and buy a BB Q10 on ebay and just pop my sim card in it!
Anyone think of a propblem with this scheme?
I will most likekly have to pitch in at least SOME extra $ of my own, but I'm hoping I can sell the I-crap or Android phone I get from AT&T that will be BRAND new for close to what the new BB's will be going for once they have been released to the general public

Hey guys, I'm guessing they'll sell it in Canada before US because BlackBerry is a Canadian company. UK got it first because they're the largest BB market. AT&T will launch it on the day BLACKBERRY decides to launch it, as they make inventory available.

If you want to let AT&T know that you are interested in getting the Z10 as soon as possible, register here: https://www.wireless.att.com//businesscenter/promo

Also I'm sure the networks will have to run thorough tests plus add there network
Apps and stuff
Also though could be other stuff like volts UK uses 240v unless the blackberry works like a iPhone that can be charged globally
Btw new blackberry looks rather nice I keep seeing tv advertising for the white phone
I will have to visit a store soon and try it out
