T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Classic sale shaves nearly $70 off the ‘Berry’s price


When BlackBerry and T-Mobile ended their kerfuffle back in May, the two celebrated by unleashing the BlackBerry Classic on T-Mo’s shelves. Now the sole BlackBerry on T-Mobile’s roster is in the news again thanks to a sale.

T-Mobile is now offering the BlackBerry Classic for $369.99, a full $69.93 off of the Classic’s previous price of $439.92. If you long to feel BlackBerry’s fabled physical keyboard beneath your thumbs, you can get the Classic for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $15.42.

As a refresher, the BlackBerry Classic has a 3.5-inch 720×720 display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, and a 2515mAh battery. The Classic is meant to combine the looks of a BlackBerry 10 device and an old-school BlackBerry Bold, complete with a tool belt with Send, End, Menu, and Back keys as well as a trackpad.

It’s been good to see BlackBerry back on T-Mobile the past couple of months, but the Classic’s price has strangely been much higher at T-Mobile than in BlackBerry’s own shop. With this sale, T-Mobile’s price is much closer to the $379 price that BlackBerry is asking for a Classic from its online shop.

    Is this a an actual, real Blackberry article or an ad?

      Real deal article letting everyone know that Magenta lowered the price of the BB Classic.

  • Android_God

    What is a Blackberry? Are they those friggin OBNOXIOUS ads that look like an article?

    • AnotherAdToReview

      Phonedog management is monitoring these comments. Hopefully they will retire the OBNOXIOUS blackberry ads that look like real posts. It’s ads like this that create a negative experience for readers on this website.

  • donnybee

    I actually got pissed cause I thought Blackberry started posting ads at the top now..

    Then I realized this was a real article.

  • TmoCaptainObvious

    This isn’t good PhoneDog when all the comments are complaints about ads.

    I am waiting for wifi calling to buy mine

    • eanfoso

      WI calling has been built in since bbos7 I have it on my z10

      • jawash22

        No, the Classic does not have wifi calling yet. It’s coming with an upcoming update that is confirmed on TMO support website. The z10 has it because it was a tmobile phone sold through stores, but the Classic is technically an unlocked model that TMO picked up for online sales.
