    Great to hear. Are you saying definitely “some point” next week? Or are you saying “next week, perhaps”?

    Also where will we be able to buy? From the usual telcos or elsewhere also?

    Thanks!

      Hello,

      The original information given (as you might have read/seen above) is meant to be here next week. However, we are now being told might have some changes.

      Yes, you will be able to buy from Telco’s, however, as for “elsewhere”, it will depend on whether if they want to carry the stock or not.

      Cheers

    Thanks Extra. I have always been a BB user but moved to an Windows phone year ago due to no viable alternative. However (or luckily, depending on your viewpoint) I broke my phone 3 weeks ago and now just patiently waiting to replace it with a Priv. Currently using my old Bold 9700 which SingTel don’t support with BIS anymore. So I desperately want/need a new phone that is the Priv!!!

      Hey

      Which Lumia did you move on to?

      Well, SingTel does still do BIS, I am using it personally, though I am not so sure if they allow new “contracts” but it is still on prepaid. Don’t worry, the wait is almost over 🙂

    Moved onto a Lumia 1020 but only as a friend gave it to me for free! Been waiting for BB ever since my Bold. Was never a fan of Q5/10 though almost bought Q20. The Priv – I definitely want that. Will SIngtel stock it? Hope so!

    • xtramadness says:

      Well, that, SingTel will let everyone know once its been launched 🙂

      Ah, the Lumia 1020 is a good device. The 1520 wasn’t too bad either but new devices recently has pushed it aside.

      Well, don’t forget to join our giveaway contest! 🙂

    BTW any reason why some Priv sets have wireless charging whilst others don’t? I heard the US model will have wireless charging but the SIngapore one won’t. Is it something to do with local electrical codes/regulations? Or am I wrong?

    • xtramadness says:

      Hi

      Yes, the US models that we brought in has wireless charging. UK/ASIA sets do not have. Similar to the BlackBerry Classic as well as Passport (Only AT&T model has it). Unfortunately, I am not too clear on that but we’ll put it out as soon as we manage to find out something!

      Hi,

      I have managed to get answer for you.

      Simply put it – devices sold in the USA with support from AT&T are required to have wireless charging. Elsewhere, however, there are no such requirements. Hence, only the USA has it.

      Pretty much the same reason why the AT&T BlackBerry Passport and Classic’s have wireless charging support too and we don’t 🙂

    Hello, xtra how do i buy the US sets off you? (Since i want the wireless charging and direct update from blackberry)

    Another question is, what if the US sets are dead on arrival or comes with any other factory fault?

    Thank you
