AT&T will get the Blackberry Passport exclusive in February. It looks different because it has curves on the edges instead of the square Blackberry Passport which I like better than the AT&T version. I heard Verizon will get the Blackberry Classic sometime soon but I don't think the Passport will ever come to Verizon. It's a GSM phone only and I don't think Blackberry has any plans of doing a CDMA version. I have no idea why Verizon is still using CDMA, it's like AT&T and T-Mobile has MP3 and Verizon and Sprint are still using cassette tapes. Verizon has rolled out the voice over LTE but it will be a while before they start doing unlocked phones am sure. The choice is to wait or go to another cell phone provider. I decided I'm leaving Verizon after 14 years because am spoil and I want the Blackberry Passport that bad.
Verizon's phones are unlocked. They just don't work on GSM. Much like AT&T isn't locked, but they don't work well on CDMA.
Sounds like we can't get a real answer. No customer service here.
I wish Blackberry could establish their own network. Unfortunately, AT&T has an exclusive on the Passport but even they have not made it available.
Thanks for the information. I have also been with Verizon for more than a decade and not but at changing. Nevertheless, it seems the industry may move beyond their, so called, better system, better plans will likely follow, and off I will go. Still watching and waiting for the Passport.
Why would there be customer Service on this Customer to Customer forum? If you want a phonre another carrier then go. No one is stopping you and no one will.
Actually The BlackBerry Passport is offered by US mobile. Www.gousmobile.com so it's not exclusive AT&T! Verizon we need you to get since we know the truth!
That remark is rude and unhelpful. I am a customer and others here have asked the same question. I am sick of Verizon pushing iPhones and androids and running down Blackberry which is a much more reliable problem than any of those. They may be flashy and highly promoted but hype isn't a substitute for quality.
Verizon can't tell you anything about the Passport because BlackBerry has not made a CDMA version yet. Nothing filed with the FCC, no mention from John Chen (aside from when he said AT&T had the exclusive: BlackBerry Classic and exclusive Passport confirmed for AT&T | CrackBerry.com).
Classic was released outside the U.S. first so we're still waiting on BlackBerry for scheduling on this one too.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I checked it out. Their service is limited and does not reach many places where I travel. Also, the Passport is not available on their system as yet.
