Are you one among those customers who have pre-ordered the BlackBerry Priv, the first Android phone from BlackBerry. If the sources are to be trusted then there are chances that you won’t be receiving the device at the promised time. The company is facing problem with the new device.
Some people have already received BlackBerry Priv and according to reports the device is working fine. But there are another set of BlackBerry Priv, which doesn’t meet the expected requirements.
According to media reports, BlackBerry shipment is delayed for about 14 days and internal technical issue is quoted as reason. BlackBerry cannot dispatch factory-unlocked BlackBerry Priv, as substitutes they offer carrier-locked devices with unlock codes generated by BlackBerry.
Much difference is not there between these devices in terms of hardware and that is the reason why they are only tied to one carrier. The usage of unlock code printed on the box helps it to link to any mobile operator.
Meanwhile, the consumers are given two choices. They either can purchase the device with this unlock code printed on the box or wait for a few more days until the company is ready with their factory-unlocked units.
