Tomorrow is the day AT&T makes the Classic available.  Wonder how long it will be before Verizon actually puts something about Classic availability on their website?

I hit my local AT&T store today to see the Passport and Classic. AT&T had them both on display for folks to demo. Personally, I thought the Classic was decent but the Passport really wowed me. AT&T's Passport is slightly different than all other Passports as they have rounded corners and a small chin on the bottom under the keyboard. Aesthetically I prefer the sharper corners but the extra half inch of casing under the keyboard is brilliant. I don't think the Classic will be enough for me to trade up from the Q10. I'd jump on the Passport in a heartbeat though if Verizon was to ever offer it.

Backordered till the 5th?? I have a feeling that verizon never intended to have devices ready to ship tomorrow (26th) since the device wasn't going to be in stores till the 5th anyways. A coincidence ? I don't think so

Very disapoinintg and misleading if thats the fact.

Something is going on with BlackBerry at Verizon. Their website now only offers the Z10 and Z30.  The Q10 and older models are no longer offered.

I began to experience the double type issue on my Q10 so I upgraded to a Z10.  Those physical keyboards wear out.  I hope for the sake of BlackBerry as a company and for those who love their products that the Classic keyboard doesn't suffer from this ailment like the Q10's keyboard does.

By the way...for anyone interested...I REALLY LIKE THE Z10.  Much better typing experience than the Q10.  Predictive typing seems to be even more accurate and one-handing it is not an issue with the predictive typing on it.

Chatted with a Vz rep a little while ago.  For the first time, they acknowledged the phone exists.  Made the comment that it 'sounds like an awesome phone'.  Still no info on price or for certain that the 26th is the date.  As the rep said, they won't know anything until it's available.  But the acknowledgement that there is such a thing as the Classic is, at the least, a positive step forward!

I just called Verizon and they did verify this information.

They claim it will be released online and in stores on Feb 26th 2015. It will also available in one color, Black.

In one week, pricing info should be available on Verizon's website.

This does get a little old. Verizon always takes their sweet time releasing devices on their network. Its very rare they are on time with the rest of the carriers. I am waiting for them to release the classic along with the rest of you all. Hopefully it is soon. I loved my 9930 and have the q10 now but I am excited to get the tool belt back. Looks like a very sharp device.

As we can all see, February 5 is past now. I check Verizon News often, no announcements, no real news.

I don't expect to see the Classic until at least mid February. VZW is slow.

I hope you are correct about mid-February.  If nothing else, hopefully before long Verizon will follow ATT's lead on providing Classic information and sign up for updates.
