BlackBerry 10 Limited Edition Not Available on Verizon Wireless

BlackBerry 10 Limited Edition Not Available on Verizon Wireless

Developers who had submitted a BlackBerry 10 app and approved for the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device cannot use it on Verizon Wireless. RIM has been sending this email to developers who requested to use the LE BB10 phone on Big Red:


We want to start by saying thank you for you continued support and commitment to the BlackBerry 10 platform. The excitement around this launch, device and platform is palpable and we owe our developer community a debt of gratitude for that. In fact, that’s one reason we want to give the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 smartphone to our developers.

I wanted to let you know that although you have applied to receive a BlackBerry 10 Limited Edition device, we are not able to offer the device from Verizon. Instead we will send you a 4G device. 

Please note that Verizon is completely committed to launching BlackBerry 10 devices, but we are not able to order the Limited Edition devices at this time.

Thank you,
BlackBerry Developer Relations Team

It looks like you will have to get a pre-paid service or new service on a different carrier. No word yet on what the reasoning behind this might be. Perhaps it has to do with the LTE radio used in the Limited Edition device?

Thanks Justin!
