I too am a Blackberry Fan and have worked my way through the range beginning with the Storm, 9900 and now the Z30. I enjoy the functionality of these phones, the fact that they have high quality products and handle the Australian system so well. So Telstra, you can see that you have a Blackberry dedicated customer base. Why not bring in the Blackberry Priv, email out to your existing Blackberry customers. I am sure like me they will all accept the offer to move to the latest Blackberry Priv. I too have seen that Optus have launched it and are doing well. I am not and never will be an Optus support customer however if it means buying a phone outright through them, then that is something I may need to consider. Please Telstra look at what your customers are looking for and just as we support you, support us in having choice in mobile phones, phones of our choice.

Having been out for some months now, I'm sure you will agree that Telstra have no plans to bring the Priv to it's customers. Even though they have had many hanging on a hook with vague responses. If purchasing the phone from Optus is too much for you to bear, perhaps it's time to start talking to Telstra about the new DTEK50. It is being rolled out in other countries as we speak. I watched the launch webcast live and I must say it looks like a good inexpensive device.
Time to mobilise your troops and show Telstra that there is still a BlackBerry fan base out there who they can make a big profit on. Flood the forums man.
A bit late to the party i know.
would love to see the blackberry priv on Telstra ( i really couldnt afford the $1000 price tag) but hey maybe if you can go here my understanding is that there blacberry's are unlocked (although i couldnt find that comment when re-looking up the website).
so you might need to double check they have Telstra's mobile frequency ranges before buying.
hope that helps
by the way before i forget to mention

I just found it after doing a search from another post about Blackberry Priv and wanted to know what it was
