I may be bringing an unlocked BB Z10 over from Rogers as I can get a good deal on one. Should I expect any issues using this phone on the Koodo network?

I would think not... given that Koodo offers the Z10 themselves. As long as the phone is unlocked, no problemo.

Alright cool. Since I did not purchase the phone from Koodo, would I have issues of getting phone support from Koodo?

I doubt that also as it is a model they offer themselves and a Z10 is a Z10.

Koodo will be able to help if you have issues. They cannot honor the warranty on the phone though for the obvious reason of it not being a Koodo phone. But if you have issues with voice, text, and/or data connection issues, Koodo can help :)

If I do have warranty issues, would Blackberry honour it?

I think not but the manufacturers warranty would apply.

If you need warranty support you would still go through Rogers, doesn't matter if you switched your network provider.

By the sounds of it though he's buying a used one since it's cheaper to buy one from Koodo. In that case you don't have a warranty do you?

Yeah you still have warranty. Blackberry has a one year manufacturer warranty on all devices, the carrier that sells the phone is obliged to facilitate this, regardless of if the device is actually used on the network in question.

Why would you not buy it from Koodo then, it's $50 cheaper?

If it is unlocked you shouldn't have a problem

I bought one a couple days ago because I was really wanting to experience the new OS since it is the only OS other than Android that has gotten me excited. I'm really liking it and if it had a bigger display I might even consider changing from Android. Everything just flows together great. There's a few things I'm not a fan of but I can see them being added or changed in a future update. How you liking yours Jorden?

Well the Blackberry "Aristo" or what ever it will be called, is rumoured to come out Q4 2013. This should be the touch BB device that Sprint will carry in the US. It is rumoured to have a 4.6 inch screen.

Sorry Kid with the flood I just noticed this post. I'm really enjoying it, I actually like it more than Android, and if it wasn't for all my Apple products I would give some serious consideration to a full time switch!
