Canadians, are you looking at getting a BlackBerry Q10 this weekend? Be sure to check out our extensive buyer's guide first!Continue Reading →
Let's see what Rogers has in the box...Continue Reading →
If you're on Rogers, Fido or TELUS (Yes, that includes Koodo) and are the proud owner of a BlackBerry Z10, you'll want to go ahead and check for software updates on your device. As reported in the CrackBerry forums and witnessed on some of our own devices, software update v10.0.10.85 is now arriving OTA. Yes, that's the software version -- the OS version itself is 10.0.10.672 and the highest release we've seen thus far, including leaks.
Update: BlackBerry has posted on the Inside BlackBerry Blog a detailed look at the changes this OS brings. You can find a quick summary of those changes below.
Rogers just announced that starting in March, you'll only need to be with them for 90 days before being eligible for unlocking - a huge step up from their old policy which required you to get through your entire contract. The unlocking process itself will cost $50, which you can go ahead and do right away if you're buying your device outright. This is great and all, but you can get BlackBerry unlocking done right through us immediately and for a fair bit cheaper. Jussayin'.Continue Reading →
Since the BlackBerry Z10 went on sale yesterday in Canada, the CrackBerry forums and twitter have been a buzz with questions on if and how the Z10 can be unlocked. Unlocking your BlackBerry from its native carrier allows you to use a SIM card from another carrier in it. This is especially handy when traveling - instead of roaming you can pick up local SIM cards. In the case of the Z10, there is a different sense of urgency going on. With the Z10 not coming to the US until March, a lot of eager BlackBerry fans in the US are looking to pick up a Canadian Z10, unlock it, and then use it on their local US-based carrier.
When we picked up our Rogers and Telus Z10s yesterday, we immediately tried to unlock them and found the standard third party "instant method" of unlocking wouldn't work. It took our unlocking partner a little time to get it all sorted, but we're now up and running! You can now get your BlackBerry Z10 unlock codes for Rogers, Bell, Telus, Fido, Virgin Mobile and Koodo from our CrackBerry Unlocking store at crackberryunlocking.com/blackberry-10. The cost of these unlocks is more than the standard instant unlock, but if you want to unlock your Z10 asap, it's the unlocking store you can trust.
If you're in need of an unlock code you can obtain one from the link below. For instructions on how to unlock your phone, watch the video above where I unlock my Rogers Z10. For written instructions, pricing and more details on unlocking, keep reading below.Continue Reading →
The Brits got first stab at the BlackBerry Z10, and now Canada is next up. Today the Z10 is available on Rogers, Bell, and TELUS, but what's the difference? Pretty slight at the end of the day, but here are the details on their plans in an easy-to-compare format. This is important stuff to know if you're going to be signing on to a three-year commitment, though there are always tab and off-contract options available.
If you really need convincing as to whether or not the BlackBerry Z10 is worth the investment, you'll probably want to check out our insanely long review. Keep in mind that while those three-year commitments may be daunting, the termination fees scale with how long you have left on your contract and are much better than they used to be. Without further ado, here's our breakdown of Canadian service plans for the BlackBerry Z10.
What, you need a closer look at the BlackBerry Z10 than what our staggeringly exhaustive review provides? Fine, here are some overview videos that Rogers and Bell posted recently. We're only slightly jealous of their production values. I'm sure TELUS will have one up shortly too, and the U.S. carriers will probably have their up closer to the March launch. All three will be offering the Z10 on February 5 for $150-ish on a three-year contract, and we're hearing off-contract pricing will be in the $650 range.Continue Reading →
*UPDATE* - Rogers has reached out about this deal to clarify it further: The White Z10 is part of the Winter White promotion, however $139.99 is the promotional price. The $39.99 posted previously seemed just a little too good to be true.Continue Reading →
With just 44 days to go until the big launch event, Rogers is already ramping up for BlackBerry 10. Starting today, customers can reserve a BlackBerry 10 device online for just $40 down. If you're a Rogers customer and registered My Rogers, you can login now and reserve your device for in-store pickup.
Unfortunately you can only reserve one device per account, so no luck in getting more than one if you're into that kind of thing (Bla1ze). If you do reserve a device, be sure to hit up the comments letting us know. Keep readng for the full press release.Continue Reading →
For Canadians who are anxiously waiting to get in on the mobile payment action, that day just got a little closer. Today at a Toronto Tim Hortons restaurant, CIBC and Rogers demonstrated the first ever Canadian mobile payment using their SecureTap system. We learned a few weeks back that Canadian carriers would be using RIM’s secure element manager on their mobile payment applications, and that is definitely where some of the magic is coming from here. This software will be on BlackBerry smartphones as well as Android and Windows 8 in the coming months.
The 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook has arrived. An updated version of the original BlackBerry PlayBook, the new model brings along 4G LTE as well as some updated hardware including a 1.5GHz processor. The BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE is availble now in Canada from Rogers, Bell and Telus.Continue Reading →
We've been hearing rumors non-stop for weeks now, and it looks like the 4G BlackBerry PlayBook is finally upon us. The new PlayBook supports 4G LTE networks and is available first in Canada with other regions including the US and Europe to follow. While there is no mention of price, the 4G LTE PlayBook will be available in with 32GB of memory from Bell, Rogers and TELUS in Canada on August 9, 2012.
WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - August 02, 2012) - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM)(TSX: RIM) today launched the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with built-in support for cellular networks. The new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook maintains a sleek and ultra-portable form while delivering overall faster performance over the original BlackBerry PlayBook, as well as support for blazing fast 4G LTE networks. Launching in Canada first, the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook allows customers to work more productively and connect to the Internet, as well as access their email, on-line apps, media and content, from more places than ever.Continue Reading →
*UPDATE* - As it turns out, the boxes contain a security casing for the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G. Rogers will have live units in stores for people to try out and this will serve as theft prevention. - Thanks, Alberto!Continue Reading →
CIBC and Rogers Unveil the Future of Mobile Payments in Canada
TORONTO, May 15, 2012 - CIBC and Rogers Communications today announced an agreement to launch Canada's first joint mobile payment solution, allowing Canadians to pay with their CIBC credit card at the checkout counter using their Rogers "Near Field Communications" (NFC) enabled smartphone. Beginning later this year, customers will be able to use this payment capability at merchants across Canada where contactless credit card payments are accepted.
This announcement represents the first time a bank and a wireless carrier have joined forces to offer a commercially available mobile payments solution to Canadians that leverages the secure SIM card inside an NFC-enabled Rogers smartphone. This new solution aligns to guidelines announced yesterday by the Canadian Bankers Association for mobile payments in Canada, as well as those developed by respected international associations such as the GSM Association (GSMA), the association of mobile operators and related companies dedicated to standardizing and supporting GSM technology.
If you're looking to pick up a new BlackBerry on the cheap but don't really want to grab a basic black version, the Curve 9360 on Rogers now comes in red. Previously, Rogers released the white and black versions but at some point recently they went ahead and added the red version to the mix. Personally, I go out of my way to not buy black devices any more so having a choice in colors is always great.Continue Reading →
