Developers on Verizon cannot get the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 handset

Developers on Verizon cannot get the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 handset
Those developers who have requested the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 handsets and have qualified for the unit, have started receiving confirmation that the device is on its way. As BlackBerry puts it, "Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control we are unable to offer a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 for developers on the Verizon network."  Some of these developers have no choice and as loyal Verizon customers, want the phone to run on Big Red's network. So the crew at the company formerly known as Prince RIM have decided to give Verizon customers two options. They can decide to request a final BlackBerry 10 device as a replacement. That means that BlackBerry will send them a BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10 as soon as the units are commercially available on Verizon. For the BlackBerry Z10, that would appear to be about mid-March. There is no clue when the BlackBerry Q10 will launch in the States.

The second alternative is to order a replacement phone from another carrier. Those Verizon customers who already made a request for a replacement unit should expect to receive an email in the next few days. If you are a Verizon customer and want to go ahead with the option to replace your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha unit with a new BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10, instructions will be sent out ASAP. 

To qualify for the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10, you need to have already received a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha unit, and have submitted a qualifying app to BlackBerry World. Those who followed those directions will soon receive an email confirming their application. The limited edition phones are supposed to go out 6 to 8 weeks after the introduction of the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 models.  That would put it at roughly the same time period as the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 in the U.S.
