    Arrow ***Blackberry (95XX) Storm/Thunder Release/Pricing Thread***

    Same as with the Bold thread, please keep all release dates and pricing (speculations, guesstimates, theories and inside info) to this very thread. This is in hopes to reduce the redundancies.



    Thanks,

    High level insider over on HoFo states that Nov 9 looks good for the in-store release. no word on how phone orders will shake out. (pre-order only, or order by phone earlier than instore) also appears that stores will be opening an hour early the week of Nov 9th to accommodate expected heavier than normal store traffic.



    oh... and hal1... the thread is already created and stickyed by a mod... i doubt arguing is going to change his mind. consolidation is a good thing at this point.

    I just got off the phone with VZW CS...he wouldn't give me any release info (could tell he new more than he was saying tho), but he said that if you registered for the updates you will get a 1 week heads-up before the in-store date. He also said that the online, in-store, and by phone availability would be the same. He only used a hypo for pricing that started at $400 retail and my GF called yesterday and got a $500 retail tag. I tried to get a pre-order...he put me on hold and said he asked his higher ups and could not get me a pre-order.

    No surprises here I know...just spreading what I heard.

    Well, then if it goes on sale in the stores, online and over the phone at the same time....might as well go to the store and have it same day!

    Also, we've heard the stores are opening early beginning that weak, how early?

    you would just loose the online discount...but....you wouldn't have to pay shipping.

    True....I'm not big on waiting in line so I'll either call or order online. They usually ship it overnight so the day or two won't kill me...I hope!!

    The price point is exactly in-line with the hypothetical I got from CS. The rep told me that I get my $100 off for the New Every Two and then "let's say you get $100 for mail-in rebate and the phone is $400, then you only pay $200"

    So, if you were quoted $199 and your eligible for the N.E.T. discount, the price point may be dead on (after rebate).

    And the sell-out factor was a fear that has me edging towards a phone/web order...plus I hate crowds and lines.

    The iPhone 3g goes for $199 and there's speculation the storm will sell for $400 +?

    How does that happen? Big mistake if they sell Storm for much more over $200.

    If memory serves me correctly, isn't there supposed to be some Verizon Press Conference tomorrow? Could we possibly get release details from this?

    Default Really?

    So if Verizon has 2400 stores and the phone is hitting the 9th... That means that at 10 per store, VZW only has 24k phones hitting opening week? Figure online will have access to 100k+ that leaves alot of phones for Best Buy to sell the next week.

    I agree...keep in mind though, that the $199 price tag on the iPhone is w/ a 2- year contract. The $400 I mentioned would be retail (meaning no contract or discount/rebate).

    So I agree with you that it should be priced in-line with the iPhone 8GB and be $199 with a 2-year contract...that would mean my NET discount would make the phone $99!!! I love it!

    Well, thanks for the share, I hope that date ends up being the correct one. I am always dubious about such things; however, I have been surprised before. We shall see.

    All of this is confusing as ****. If it's $200 with no contract, after NE2 and rebate....what does that mean? NE2 requires a new 2-year contract, no??

    If not, then perhaps a renewal 2 year contract, NE2, and rebate would get it to what??? $100?
