As I have stated before I work for Alltel and we have a RIM employee that trains just Alltel. I talk to him almost everday shareing tips and tricks we find. He called me to let me know on the wake of Verizon going to launch the 8830 in May and Sprint in July We(Alltel) are going to be launching it in June or July!!!
Just wanted to let all you Alltel customers and every one else know!
Sine this is my first post, i cannot link the address, but here goes. Based on a article on phonescoop, there is a webpage dedicated to the 8830 according to the same thread of posts, its slated date is 8/16. maybe a hoax, dont know.

Not a hoax, I posted we(Alltel) were going to get it in June or July. Well because we test all of our phones for 100 days they did find some "bugs" with the 8830. One of the big problems was battery issue. Well I'm glad to report that on Aug 16th we WILL be launching the 8830!!!! So get your sleeping bags and chairs to camp out! I don't know the price of it yet but when I do you'll be the first to know!!!!!
Nope that is wrong info! Stright from a RIM employee's mouth. Its a production issue! He is not sure if this will delay the launch or not. We got all of our stuff so the 8830. Flyers, cds, tips and tricks, posters ect.... So right now it looks to be on time. The only thing I could think of software problem is that they may wait to launch for OS 4.3, but we could just as easily upload the software....
I had to go in to an AT&T store today with my mom. Heading right for the BlackBerry's and started playing around. The keyboard on the 8830 is a bit different. Love the Curve. Still keeping my fingers crossed that the Curve might show up at Alltel.
Can't do the sure-type on the Pearl. I'm sure it is a wonderful device, (afterall, it is a BlackBerry) but I guess I will have to learn to love the 8830!
I was really talking myself out of the 8830, then my husband goes and spends a fortune on a misting system for the tailgate parties for the Cardinals games. I understand the mist sytem since it's 110 degrees outside, but for the Cardinals games??? I don't feel so bad about the expenditure now!
Well Alltel ONCE again delayed a phone SURPRISE! Thats one thing I HATE about Alltel! There is now NO offical launch date. One thing that is for sure is well...NOTHING is for sure with Alltel wireless! All I ******** want is this dang 8830! **DEEP breath** Ill keep all update....
Alltel will be releasing the 8830 on Thursday, August 27th... FINALLY!
The two-year price for the BlackBerry 8830 is $349.99 with a $100 mail-in rebate, resulting in a final price of $249.99 to the Customer. A Smart Choice Pack or BlackBerry feature is required with this device.
