    I just wanted to know if anyone paid full retail price for the BlackBerry Bold? I'm considering it, since I don't qualify for the upgrade until March of 2010!, since I just upgraded to the iPhone 3G in July, the second Saturday it was released.

    I bought mine for 490 a month or two ago off of craigslist. I can upgrade now, was thinking about selling this one for 400+ and upgrading for 300. Make a little bank and get that warranty..

    I'm a happy iphone 3g convert.

    You still get warranty. Only real benefit would be being able to add insurance.

    They have been going for just over $400 on our marketplace page here on crackberry. That's where I got mine!

    It might be better to keep the iPhone for a little while longer, and then get the Bold. Save some money. A new Bold, with no contract is 550. Then 2 yr contract is 300. So i guess you'd have to pay the 300 and another 2 years.

    Wait. There might even be a better phone that you might want later.

    If you decide to get the Bold at full retail through ATT make
    sure they don't stiff you and still renew your contract anyway.
    I had a problem like that and nearly canceled until they did
    something for me.

    So, is there no chance of just waiting it out Chris? There may be something even better out by the time you upgrade in 2010.

    All I can tell you is that I will be buying one (at full price if need be) when/if Sprint gets a CDMA version.

    I can wait it out, its just the Edge on this BlackBerry Curve 8310 is so slow and the iPhone didn't have features at all except for visual voicemail... now, I'm just finding faults just to get the BlackBerry Bold. You guys are quite a supportive group, 4 of you actually told me to wait it out, instant gratification really gets to you, you know?
    I think I NEED to enroll in a 12 step CA (Crackberry's Anonymous) program LOL

    I got my Bold through the phone service at Amazon.com. With a contract extension with AT&T, I ended up paying $249 before the $100 rebate.

    alright guys, i did it! I got a BlackBerry Bold 9000 with the early exception upgrade which isn't too bad. Guess i'll be moving from the "BlackBerry Curve 83XX" discussion forum to the "BlackBerry Bold 9000" discussion forum now. Thanks for all the help guys!

    If I had seen your thread earlier I would have been bad and advocated paying full price. I'm not eligible til Sept 2010 but I REALLY wanted the Bold. Honestly, it was worth every penny!

    at&t makes you wait 2 years? verizon,even if you sign a 2 year contract, will let you upgrade if you re-sign after 12 months.
