Can anyone explain why the new blackberrys don't come with a holster?

I'm just looking to upgrade my phone on contract through vodafone. I have been looking at the Z30 model for a few weeks. When i got my current phone (White Bold 9900) I recived a leather holster that came with the phone.


I would like to know a reason why blackberry have decided to stop the holsters. I have always seen blackberry as a luxury device and the holster was always part of that reason. I would of thought since blackberry started to struggle to keep up with the lastest competing phones, they would be trying harder to keep their existing custom as much as possible.  


I feel like blackberry has forgotten they were once seen as the luxury phone only a few years ago.


Could anyone please explain why they have stopped it? thanks

The seller, the mobile provider, decides what all accessories go in the box. And yes, I would bet the belt holster was or is the least popular case. Although it's the one I use.

By excluding the accessory....

  • it keeps the cost low
  • minimizes waste for something unwanted

I love my holster.  I never use the earphones that comes with some phones.
