$499 at ATT and others but the new BB does not have a removable battery. With the potential of quick battery failure after letting a LI battery discharge too far after a few times, repair may be a problem. Manufactures are selling phones with a built -in buy a new one feature. They realized a few years ago that users would need to either send in the phone for repair which caused heavy depression while waiting for return in some or buy a new phone. Guess which one they manufacturers suggested. ALL Lithium Ion batteries have heat and recharge issues. If users could simply replace the battery then they would not need a new phone. Samsung figured it out with the Galaxy Note 7. All after had a non removable battery. Apple figured it out from the beginning. If you read the various reasons they use, it starts from smaller size to easier ( ?? ) for users.
