Yup. The local Telus stores don't actually get stock on the phone until Wednesday, but the local Bell store (I only called one of them) has them. I went and took a look at it. I Like, perfect upgrade for my Z30.
Either place is more than happy to offer a better price for the phone, for the plan I want, and give me $$$ bill credits for changing carriers.
The writing is on the wall for me. I am changing carriers as soon as December 1st rolls around, as I want my phone unlocked out of the box. Roger's has until then to get their head in the game and carry the phone.
Congrats @JerryY on your decision to locate the phone you desire and if it means moving carriers to get the device and services you desire, then that is what consumer choice is all about.
Enjoy your new phone - pop back and tell us what you like about the device once you start using it.
Smart idea to wait until December 1st and get it unlocked - at this point Bell is selling the KeyOne unlocked, and if you go into their stores, you will find that since early November, they mark any locked device with a blue dot.
Enjoy your new phone.
I would like to add my voice to the many who have shared their disappointment of Rogers not carrying the BB Motion phone. It seems odd to me that Rogers, one of the "Big Three" carriers, is the only one of those not to carry this phone. I called Rogers tech support last night to find out if a Rogers sim card would work on an unlocked BB Motion (thinking it would be the same as the Key One), and no one could answer the question, other than saying maybe or there might be some loss of functionality as in some of the Google and iPhones. I have been a Rogers customer for a very long time and have been relatively happy with them. I would rather not switch carriers for a number of reasons, but if they do not announce shortly that they will be carrying this phone, I will be saying goodbye to Rogers. The only things the moderators would say in response to the many questions about the BB Motion was that Rogers would announce it if they decided to offer it, which does not in any way answer all the questions about availability. Sorry, not good enough and not fast enough.
I keep checking the Rogers website, hoping to see the Motion! Can't believe they are still offering the DTEK50 for $0 (old stock I would assume that will probably never sell at this point) and never ever offered the DTEK60.
Has anyone heard any updates on the possibility of Roger getting the motion? apparently it's selling really well with Bell.
Like others, I am looking to get the Motion and wondering if I have to move to Bell, or worse Telus.
Come on Rogers, get with it!
