Rogers, Bell and Virgin Drop BlackBerry Z10 Price to $99.99 on a 3 Year Term

blackberry-z10-superbowl

A few Canadian carriers have dropped their prices on the BlackBerry Z10 when customers lock into a 3 year contract. I thought the initial offering of $139.99 was very reasonable, but Rogers, Bell and Virgin Mobile have knocked off an extra $40 so you have more cash for cases and screen protectors…or lunch. Other carriers will likely follow suit to remain competitive but we’ll see what happens.

What do you think about the pricing? Would you rather pay less up front and lock into a longer contract or cough up the cash up front so you don’t have to worry about contracts?

  1. There is no way I would do a 3 year contract…. even if they made the phone free.

  2. im done with cellphone contracts and 3 years is way to long to be locked into any company. Im buying my phone outright.

  3. Considering you will need a service provider for as long as you use a mobile device, I wouldn’t mind a long term contract. As long as I get a new handset ever 12 months and I have the flexibility of changing my package (call and data plan)

    • Thats a good way of thinking about it. You do need a carrier to provide service whether you buy the phone outright, or get a subsidized price. I have been with the same carrier for over 7 years now so getting the phone at a discount and being in a long contract hasn’t affected me negatively.

      From a numbers perspective, say I buy a new phone outright for $500 then pay $50 per month for 2 years of service. That’s $1700 over 2 years. If I buy the phone at a subsidized price of $150 then pay $50 per month for 2 years, the total is $1350.

      If I’m not concerned about switching carriers whenever I want (its kind of a hassle anyway), I’ll stick to my cheaper handset and save a few hundred bucks.

  4. 3 year contract is too long, but get this now it is 50 dollars.lol
