CAN SOMEONE FROM VERIZON PLEASE PROVIDE AN UPDATE ON PASSPORT!?!?!? ANYTHING AT THIS POINT WOULD BE APPRECIATED! YOUR CUSTOMERS DESERVE TO KNOW AT LEAST SOMETHING!

Loyal Verizon customers are voicing their opinion and deserve to get an update regarding the Blackberry Passport. Is Verizon in discussions with Backberry? Do they have any intentions of even offering the device? We deserve to know anything at all. It doesn't have to be a definite yes or no. We just want updates on what's going on!?!?

I browse Crackberry from time to time and it looks like someone posted that the Passport is going to AT&T only in the US.  I don't know how reliable the info is but you can check it out for yourself...

I saw that and was very dismayed. I'm hoping that Verizon will still get the Passport, perhaps the same way they got the Z30. The Z30 launched globally on GSM carriers and a month and a half later Verizon got the CDMA version.

More and more, however, I'm beginning to think the rumors of Passport being AT&T-only in the U.S. That rumor also says that the BlackBerry Classic will be the Verizon exclusive. There is precedence for this. AT&T got the 9800/10 Torch, and several months later Verizon got an all-touch BlackBerry they also called the Torch. But the slider keyboard never came to any CDMA carrier. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm starting to fear the Passport will be the new Torch.

I'm still clinging to snippets of information, completely unsubstantiated, like how somebody has actually seen a Passport with Verizon branding being tested, or alleged conversations with highly placed sources within Verizon confirming Passport is coming. But Verizon's silence is deafening and starting to worry me.
