The price is dependant upon the plan you choose, change it to a voice and email plan and the price will drop back down in the listing for you.

So either they are losing money on the bold through their subsidizing or they are low down dirty scammers. You decide...
As an AT&T customer living in the united states I can honestly say I'm shocked they're allowed to get away with this crap. I feel sorry for those of you up north that have no choice but to deal with them.

But overall, what you said is still right regarding the overall no contract..no plan price..they just never adjusted the $599 to the right price.
They can't even make their website work, let alone make the right adjustments to the pricing on phones..sad things is they JUST updated the site to give a better experience not that long ago lmao!! Ya good job guys, I seen a monkey do better coding on a website.

someone grabbed my bold for me from a rogers reseller in canada, they charged $699, because they said they have to make something off it if I am not getting a contract wiht them. Still an ok price, but I dont like that rogers advertised it as 599 then it became 649 and now the store is charging me 699.

They have raised the price to discourage people outside of Canada from buying one.
There is no real or long term cash flow in just selling a phone.William

Could it possibly be for a $50 rebate??? I upgraded, and mine was $399 PLUS $50 that would be rebated. Nothing was said about it until I hit the checkout button and saw the summary.
Still underhanded and low for not saying anything about it, but hey, look who we are dealing with...
