    ive searched and looked and i can't find all my questions answered anywhere?

    okay what are the rumors about verizon getting this phone called the Niagara or Jupiter or Pluto?

    does anyone know WHICH one verizon is getting? or are they getting more than one?

    does anyone have a date for release about anyone of these?

    will the new phone be able to be used in muliple countries like the storm?

    if you are able to supply me with this info. that would be great.

    1H is the first half of the year.
    CY is the calendar year so 2009.

    Guessing upgrade isn't up yet, but don't get your hopes up on these release days since they haven't even been announced by RIM yet. Well at least until CES is over then we'll know if their announced or not.

    I'm on blackberry withdrawal after dumping my storm yesterday (3 replacements later). I'm drueling over the potential for the bold to come to verizon. I read somewhere that it has a May release date attached to it. Can anyone confirm?

    I came over from another carrier for the Storm. I really really want the Niagra now. I was told that if I took the storm back and bought a cheap phone and go month to month I would still have to pay full price. They also said I could go back to my old carrier until the new phone came out. Is this true? I like the storm but love the Bold, especially if it has wifi!!!!!

    First one was one of the initial release ones - Screen wouldn't click on top part. Second one- Screen clicked awesome for 2 weeks then stopped clicking near the U on landscape mode. Third one that came yesterday no click at all.....I was fed up

    This is true if you BUY a phone to hold you over! However, why not just go back to your old phone? I used my NE2 for a VX6800. Hated it, returned it within the 1 month. Went back to my razr for 3 months on month to month, then picked up a Curve complete with NE2 discount.

    So, don't buy a cheap phone, go back to your old one.

    My old phone is an 8830WE that is on Cellular South, a local carrier. I don't have an old Verizon phone since I just switched to them....

    Yes you do. It is a awesome device. I believe a lot of people are going to exchange/drop their Storm when this hits Verizons' shelves. But it's a great device, fast, beautiful screen, real snappy OS. Total package.

    VZW does support that phone, it might just be a matter of getting it unlocked.

    I think there are only two important questions remaining; one being release date (we'll let that one rest for a while), the other being form factor.

    Crucial, in your opinion, is it an attractive device?

    I know these release dates are all estimates, but how accurate are they usually?

    When was the Storm released in conjunction with its ETA?

    It seems like VZW will have nicer blackberries than AT&T here soon.

    Talk to a friend, and see if they have an old phone you can use for a few months
