No matter what anyone tells you no one at Verizon you are going to talk to knows anything until it hits the website.

I have found my answer through Blackberry's website... this device is has been released.. but only to a few retailers online and at this time ONLY AT&T can provide services... BELOW straight from Blackberry ,, Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular will have the device at a later date..

the Blackberry website also states

FEATURES:

    • 2515 mAh battery (Up to 22 hours battery life)
    • 3.5” touch display
    • BlackBerry 10.3 Browser
    • 8MP rear camera /2MP Front Facing Camera
    • 16GB memory
    • Detailed Tech Specs
  • This version works with GSM Carriers only; bands: FD-LTE: 1,2,4,5,7,13,17,25. HSPA: 1,2,4,5/6
  • This version of BlackBerry Classic will not work on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular. US Carrier specific devices will be available at a later date.
  • NOTE: This device requires a nano SIM card.

this is a situation that Verizon , Sprint or US Cellular has NO control over... BlackBerry has designed this device a certain way for some reason.. you may find the answer on their site.. but unfortunately ,, Verizon can not assist you with an answer to why...

Blackberry does state... that devices will be available to all carriers at a later date,,,

Tomorrow is the supposed big day...anyone holding their breath?  I'm starting to think that Verizon isn't much interested in any new offerings from BB.

It's early but no announcement yet.

50 days since BlackBerry's announcement that the Classic would be available on AT&T and Verizon.

verizon marketing of BB is non-existent.  I have been a lifelong BB user and can't wait any longer.  Goodbye Verizon!  You just lost 30 corporate accounts.
