I would love to have a smart phone that is not an iPhone or Android. The Z30 is what I want, and I don't want to be on Verizon. I use T-Mobile in the States and travel internationally often. I would pick one up tomorrow if it were made available direct to consumers or through T-Mobile!

I am in the same boat myself, except I live in Canada. I am quite upset with the local carriers that supposedly carry the Z30.
Telus and Rogers told me no one has one in stock. The sales reps are just interested in a quick sale, commission and pushing Android or iPhone.
Let me fill you in on my BB history. I used to have a Bold 9000 in my corporate days, and still today miss a few features that were BB specific... I switched to the iPhone when the Torch was finally released due to the fact that it was not the "game changer" it was supposed to be.
I am fully ready to come back to BB, but the local providers are not BB friendly or proactive. If BB took the Google Store appraoch and offered the products directly to consumers with some promotional pricing for a limited time I bet you you would see a huge market shift back to BB!
I want to buy a Z30, I have three friends who also want a Z30 and we are getting nowhere with the mentioned carriers (Telus and Rogers) as well as the two retailers who are supposed to have the Z30's (Best Buy and The Source)... The other issue is that I was told if I purchased the phone outright, I couldn't unlock it nor could it be sold to me unless I started a contract with the carriers... talk about sharks!
I feel so discouraged and dissapointed. I would love it if someone from BlackBerry chimed in.

Thank you for the replies
I figured that the chances of a BB representative seeing this here might be slim, but I still have hope

Better late than never !!! This has been the inherent problem with Blackberry and thats the reason they are where they are, ALWAYS LATE !!! . Phone was released in Nov 2013 and you take 4 months to get it out to the public (unlocked version). Till now was only with Verizon. C'mon BB you're already out of the game because of your slacker attitude. Now again, where is the White version ???? Simply RIDICULOUS !!! Another 3 months to get the White version out ??? Dont you guys every learn to be ahead of the curve. This attitude of this company has ruined such an amazing product and an amazing company. Unbelievable what people at the top are doing. And to top it all, Mr. Chen is just the same as the previous guy, maybe even worse. The BB leadership still doesent get it why they failed, wasnt because of their product, it was because of their attutude. Look at this, they have launched Z30 , porobably the best phone on the market with the most advanced operating system right now, till now everything was great , BUT who knows about this ??? Probably no-one. NO ADVERTISING. Apple can market their sub-par phone so well, and Blackberry relies on what ??? ...................let me guess............their Loyal Customer Base !!!! Shame on the Blackberry Leadership to have not woken up even now. WAKE UP !!!!!! Be Aggresive , Be Confident of your product and Be ahead of the curve. Atleast for the sake of your Loyal Customers !!!
