The BlackBerry Passport has been available through BlackBerry and Amazon for a while now, but back during CES 2015 AT&T and BlackBerry announced a new re-designed version of the handset that will be sold exclusively in the U.S. Customers can pick up that model, and the new BlackBerry Classic, starting on Feb. 20. AT&T announced the upcoming availability on Monday, when it also finally provided pricing details for both handsets.

The BlackBerry Passport will cost $0 down with monthly payments of $21.67 on an AT&T Next 24 plan. It will also cost $0 down but will require monthly payments of $27.09 with AT&T Next 18 or $32.50 with AT&T Next 12. Customers can opt to purchase the device contract-free for $649.99 or for $199.99 with a new two-year contract.

The BlackBerry Classic can be acquired for $419.99 without a contract or for $49.99 with a new two-year agreement. Customers on AT&T Next 24 will pay $14 per month and $0 down, and AT&T subscribers with AT&T Next 18 and Next 12 can expect to pay $0 down and $17.50 per month, or $0 down and $21 per month, respectively.
