In order to be eligible for a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 smartphone, you must have received a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha testing device, submit a qualifying app, and you must also qualify under the program terms and conditions. Once you’ve submitted your app and it qualifies, you will receive an email indicating you qualify and instructions on how to trade in your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha testing device.
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we’ve been receiving.
