Interesting Buying an unlocked/unbranded 9900 (or trading for a Torch 2)
I'm another one of those massively frustrated AT&T customers who has been waiting over a year for the 9900 only to find that AT&T royally screwed me by holding out 3 months longer than everyone else. If it weren't for a corporate discount and multiple grandfathered unlimited plans, I'd kick them to the curb posthaste.
Regardless, I'm sick of waiting and would like to buy an unlocked (and ideally unbranded) Bold 9900 that is fully compatible with AT&T 3G bands (including H+). I'm willing to pay a reliable and trustworthy source or, ideally, I could use my 2-year upgrade to get a brand new AT&T Torch 2 (exclusive to AT&T for at least the next few months I believe), unlock it, and offer it as a trade (potentially with some extra cash thrown in as I'm aware the Bold is a more expensive device). This could be a good deal for someone who can use an upgrade for a discount on a 9900 and who's a fan of the Torch-style BBery but not on AT&T.
So if anyone has (a) recommendations for a good source to buy an unlocked/unbranded phone in the $550-$800 range or (b) is open to the trade mentioned above, please shoot me a message. I'm based in Manhattan and could do a deal locally with someone, or if anyone in the NYC area knows of a quality wireless shop w/unlocked 9900s I'd appreciate the recommendation.
Thanks in advance.
