I had a locked Blackberry-Z10. Looked at plenty of other websites which offer the service at silly prices, then came across the https://www.safeunlockcode.com/ website - WOW, I'm glad I did. Filled in the details and sent it - within 5 minutes I received a reply with my unlock code.

Q10 is a piece of dung
I have the Blackberry Bold and Q10. The 3year old Bold is much better! The new Q10 is crap. They have removed the Home Button on the Q10, so you have to now use two hands to operate this phone. They have also removed the wonderful mini track pad, which was so easy to use. Now instead of moving my thumb one or two millimeters to scroll anywhere on the screen, I have to use my finger to glide or point somewhere all across the larger screen. That's not better, that's worse! And more cumbersome! Its obviously easier to move your left thumb 2 millimeters and press down, compared to moving your right index finger 2 inches and make a stupid swipe motion. Obviously!!! Now instead of holding the phone in one hand and using my same thumb to nav... (continues)

What a lose :(
I personally prefer Android devices, but without competition a OS become stagnant.
With Microsoft Window's 8, BlackBerry's BB 10, and Canonical Ubuntu phone are trying to innovate (in UI, price, design, security, apps etc) in someway to make them stand out in the crowd and grab the 3rd spot crown (hopefully they are shooting for the top but we have to be realistic here).
If we only have iOS/Mac OS X and Android/Chromium they OS will become scary similar and the differences will slowly erode away.
With the BlackBerry stopping sales in Japan, it is lessening competition for the Japanese people, which is never a good thing. Hopefully this move is only temporary until they build there shares up a bit more.

This phone will do great.
I can see there are lots of doubters here.
Many people stopped buying BB devices simply because they knew BB10 was coming out, it would have been a waste to buy a horrible BB7 device, and the Bold 9900 is still a $600 phone (on my list), very expensive.
LOTS of people, and people I know dumped BB devices in favour of iPhone, or Android, and with good reason - besides these upcoming two devices, BB has been releasing devices that were obsolete before they even left the factory. Build quality aside - people need good specs, and apps.
For a BB, or almost any smartphone, 800mhz is not enough, and a 1000mah battery is definately not enough. RIMs stock will go up. I've been watching stocks lately. Apple has been tanking, and google ha... (continues)

If I can afford it, I may go ahead and purchase the at&t version of the Q10 at the no commitment price...
I'm thinking there is a big pent up demand of Blackberry faithful who have been holding off on upgrading, some for as long as 12-18 months, so that they could jump on the Blackberry 10 bandwagon right when it started....
I suspect the initial sales will be brisk,,,at least 500,000 units in North America for the first week...
