Re: Bell Canada Release Date!!!
According to the Bell site, you can buy the phone off contract for $699 CAN, which is about $635 USD based on current exchange rates. The only thing I'm not sure of is what version of the phone they are selling. Is it the unlocked version (D6503)? Also, is there any branding? The site also mentions an "unlock" fee of $50 CAN, but not sure if that applies here.
I would consider buying from Bell if I could get confirmation on what phone, specifically, they are selling.
Yeah, especially if they are going for over $800 on ebay. I was tempted to pick one up, but after reading that a few people had quality issues (aesthetics only), I thought I would wait. For $635, that's a great deal.
Typically there is no branding on Bell phones, BUT they are locked to Bell 99.99% of the time. Canadian service providers are fairly sticky about that. According to what I read though, you can purchase an unlocked phone directly from Sony Online Store on the same date.
Only shipping to Canada I assume, correct?
Are there services where you can get an address to ship to for a fee? I seem to remember reading about something of the sort.
Also, I am currently on Verizon, and was planning to switch to T Mobile to get the Z2 and unlimited data. But, I saw that VZW Z2 picture, and thought I might hold out due to the great coverage of VZW.
The Z2 doesn't support CDMA does it? Would the VZW version have to have added antennas, or are they already in the phone?
Edit: This is HTConeplus if it makes a difference. I cannot get my account to work on mobile, so I made a new one. I posted this from my desktop.
