9900 not coming to T-Mobile after all?
According to this front page Crackberry article The 9900 is off the radar as far as T-Mobile is concerned. Rumor is that ATT is indeed calling the shots on T-Mobile's phone releases now. This could be very bad not just for the Blackberry 9900 but for all other phones carried by Tmob as T-Mobile simply sells down their stock in preparation for boarding by their new "A Fee & Fee" overlords.HTC Sensation 4G

I sure hope this isn't true, because it would be all the reason I need to switch carriers the instant the 9900 actually starts becoming available in the US.
So far we've heard plenty of rumors that it is coming to T-Mobile, so we'll see what happens.

Script from chat session w. TM support an hour ago
mike Thr: and one model w.o. a camera
mike Thr: The only models that TM did have wre a 9700 and a similar 9780
mike Thr: TM , apparently does not have the new 9900 that others have released
mike Thr: The 9900 is new.
~Francine G: The one on the upgrade tool has the camera, you can try the local T-Mobile stores they may have other black berry phones available.
~Francine G: Let me check on the 9900.
~Francine G: Thank you for waiting, the Blackberry 9900 we are going to release but there is no date as of yet.
mike Thr: Thanks for your help. We will call the local store. And maybe wait for the new model.BB 9700 -- wife replaced her dying BB 8900 w. HTC 4G Slide 8/11. TM had no "up-to-date" BB at the time.

Don't think that has any say on tmobile's release. And if it was that would suck stupid seal balls.
But that whole att November tentative date is horrible. You are the ones who had the bold first. How could you back burner that thing like that?... Freaking typical.

This is complete bs! I was on with tmobile tech support and they have had 3 days of training on the bold touch. She was talking all about it and how awesome it was.

T-Mobile was the first carrier to announce that they will carry this device back in May, during BB World. I don't see why they would change their mind now.
If they end up not carrying this device then, sh!t, let AT&T take them over, if they're giving up already. Sprint's coverage and prices are just as good as T-Mobile's.
