Re: Where can I buy brand new blackberry Z10 (large quantity)?

I remember when folks insisted their Nokia phones be the ones "Made in Finland." It may have mattered at one time, but those days are gone.

Re: Nuisance ads for apps on curve

If it's from within the app itself, that's the price of a free app. Usually buying the "pro" version will turn off advertising. Nothing you can do about in-app advertising on free apps though.

No, but I'm using an iPhone right now and resale value on the Q10 is still pretty decent. I got $260 for mine, and $195 for my Z10. And those were quick sales.
