Father's Day promotion takes $100 off the price of an unlocked BlackBerry Priv

Father's Day promotion takes $100 off the price of an unlocked BlackBerry Priv
Starting today and running through Monday, June 20th, BlackBerry is running a promotion for Father's Day. The holiday is being celebrated this coming Sunday, and the manufacturer is taking $100 off the price of the unlocked Android powered BlackBerry Priv. Including the $50 permanent discount previously announced by the company, the Priv will be $549 during the sale.

If you're looking for the cheapest price for the Priv in the U.S., Newegg  is offering the T-Mobile branded version of the phone for $374.99. The unlocked version that BlackBerry is selling will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile's 4G LTE network. The handset has recently been updated to Android 6.0, which means it has features like Doze, Google On Tap, and app permissions on a feature-by-feature basis.

Can't you just see that smile on your dad's face after you tell him that a brand spanking new BlackBerry Priv is coming his way? And with a physical QWERTY easier for many dads to use, you just know that your pop will appreciate the Priv's physical keyboard. If he would rather send texts and emails using a virtual QWERTY keyboard, he will have that option too.

Typical young whippersnapper who thinks older people are dumber than them.

well it is true.... Most of the time elderly people and technology do not match.

Older and elderly are not the same. Besides, the neat stuff you're enjoying today were created by these same "older" folks that are being ridiculed here. If memory serves, Steve Jobs was in his mid 50s when he passed. He'd be pushing 60 today. How old is Bill Gates? Larry Schmidt?

I know that older and elderly is not the same... But I think that elderly applies better for this... cause you could be OLDER than me but that does not make you and ELDER person, you see what I mean?... AND also I am talking from by own experience... I work in tech support with phones... and most of the elder customers have problems understanding technology.. now I am NOT saying that this is with all people but MOST of the time it is...

Great handset, but you can shop around sites like amazon.com and such and get it for over $100 less than what this sale price is. Still, it's a great handset.

Phonearena, please read the following with understanding: 1. You guys are complete jackasses for acting as if this is a good deal, considering the Priv could be had between $380-480 for a while now 2. You guys are jerks for using the "add comment" box for pop up ads 3. Get a f**king clue before no one visits this site anymore. Sick of this s**t -signed everyone

Someone else called it.

Plenty of people have "called it" concerning your incessant trolling, and yet, you still deny it.

29. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You mean like you deny having several accounts here and you fighting the good fight according to this article below: http://utbblogs.com/the-tide-turning-americans-want-a-blackberry-passport/

You can post that until your blue in the face, but just because some stranger in the Internet claims to be me, doesn't make it so. I bet you believe trump isn't a bigoted idiot, also. Lmao! And no, I mean like what I said: plenty of people have pointed out your excessive trolling, to the point where you've made faux accounts of yourself and others, and you still deny that you're a troll.

34. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Well you and Trump would have something in common - egotistical and a tendency to lie and fail. You know that's you. You're the only one who believed those faux accounts were me, but of course it's just you deflecting again and trying to cash in on your troll tokens.

37. meanestgenius

You and Trump have even more in common. You're both idiots with delusions of grandeur that are really cowardly liars that troll incessantly. And if you believe I'm the only one that believes that those faux accounts were yours, then I've got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. I'll even give you "Troll Under The Bridge" discount, seeing as how that's where you'll be dwelling.

40. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Sounds like you and blackberry. I guess that's why you're always using Trump in your lame insults. Yeah, I figured you would deflect again. You know good well that was you behind those faux accounts. You got your troll tokens and credit for that.

43. meanestgenius

Posts: 22106; Member since: May 28, 2014

It sounds much more like you and you know it. I use Trump because you're as idiotic as he is. Funny how you call the truth about you deflecting. Everyone here knows that you're the one that's been behind those faux accounts. Quit it with the BS and lies, already.

46. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Aka Mxy was right and I'm just deflecting because I'm a tool out for more troll tokens. You're both pompous airheads with massive egos. And everyone knows you're on your fourth or fifth account because you were banned for "fighting the good fight."

49. meanestgenius

Posts: 22106; Member since: May 28, 2014

I find it both ironic and hilarious that you're calling me a "pompous airhead with a massive ego", when that is an apt description of yourself. What's even more apt is that you're as idiotic as trump is. As I said, everyone knows that those are your faux accounts, as well you having been "limited" many times for your incessant trolling, that you still do today.

52. Mxyzptlk unregistered

All you're doing now is just recapping everything I said. You're done here. Take your troll tokens and quit while you still can. You know you're more like Trump than I am. Both of you can stick your head on a jack@$$ and nobody would know the difference. You've been limited before as well. Don't try and dodge the blame from fighting the good fight.

55. meanestgenius

And all you're doing is deflecting and playing the victim, as usual. If you don't like being called out for your BS, then don't spew it. And you can shout that I'm like Trump until the moon falls from the sky, it still won't change the fact that you are the one that's more like him than I could ever be. You're a trolling idiot that always backtracks when called out. I haven't been "limited" anywhere near the amount of times that you have, and definitely not for incessant trolling like you.

58. Mxyzptlk unregistered

There you go again with the recycling. You're pathetic. Just grow up and stop complaining about comments just because you disapprove of them. You're just bumburned like Trump. P. S. Watch you deflect again with a parroted response. No, you've been banned several times before you decided to behave.

61. meanestgenius

Posts: 22106; Member since: May 28, 2014

There you go again still crying like a little btch and playing the victim. Man up and own up to your BS for once. And you really shouldn't talk about your other idol, Trump, like that. You mimic his idiocy to perfection. You're faux accounts have all been banned, and you've been limited for your incessant trolling, of which you still do.

64. Mxyzptlk unregistered

There you go again recycling comments. You just don't want to admit that you were wrong. Not my fault you got owned again. You should consider becoming Trump's new campaign manager since both of you believe in pipe dreams. Only reason you haven't been banned again is because you're behaving and because this is all you have, fighting the good fight.

67. meanestgenius

Posts: 22106; Member since: May 28, 2014

And what do you think you just did? What you just posted is not an original comment. The only thing you own is blueb@//$ from lack of you know what. Your Trump jokes are as lame as you are. The only reason they haven't banned you yet is because you're good to keep around as court jester.

70. Mxyzptlk unregistered

This argument is done. I'm not going to continue feeding your massive ego because you're as bad as troll as Trump. Just take your troll tokens and quit while you still can. Unlike you, I wouldn't care. You'd just make another genius/nerd account and go back to trolling I mean fighting the good fight.

73. meanestgenius

Posts: 22106; Member since: May 28, 2014

Then stfu if the argument is done. And stop mimicking me using Trump jokes. I understand that you want to be like me, but man up and be yourself. Of course you would care. You can say you wouldn't until you're blue in the face, but if you didn't care, you wouldn't be on every BlackBerry article posting BS, as well as constantly trolling Samsung and Motorola articles, and attacking people in Apple articles, all the while making faux accounts so you can troll even more. Your most recent one about techie just got banned.

76. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Not my fault if you and Trump are alike, completely asinine. I never want to be like you and you're out of your mind if you think I do. Whatever man. You obviously are stupid enough to believe that was me, I can see reason is not your strength. Like I said before, this argument is done so stfu now.
