Why are some phones limited to some carriers?
I was asking because when the BB 10 comes out, of which there are about 3 different styles, there is one in particular I'd like to get and it occured to me that it might not be offered by my carrier. I can't currently switch because of the contract period. Will be totally bummed if I can't get the one I want.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you for all of that information! I hope the one I want, isn't limited to another carrier... I'm sure with my luck, it will be. In which case, I won't be upgrading.
I guess in regards to the Bold 9900 white or black, it must have been due to exclusivity arrangements. This, I don't understand! You are fairly stuck with the carrier you have, for a number of yrs. so it's not possible to change just because one carrier had rights to the colour white, while the other one did not. I suppose if you're switching carriers, it's an incentive but otherwise, it just means a regular customer can lose out for NO reason.
