    the Blackberry Curve has been delayed due to a software issue that was plaguing the device. i personally i have had a chance to use the device but did notice some flaws on the demo device. since then RIM has been coming to all the sprint stores with the updated devices and they all are working awesome and i believe are faster then the Pearl and the 8830.

    called my local store and she stated they are looking at mid June before they get any in. She stated they just got an offical email from Sprint on it. i guess i will have to get mine from telesales this weekend.

    All signs are pointing to a release of May 7th. The curve should be in stores that evening. At least all the higher end stores. If your local store sells a bunch of phones and new lines of service I will bet they will have the curve Wednesday night.

    I like this line from the end of the article:

    "The final word for this date will come Wednesday."

    Well no kidding Wednesday is the 7th, are they going to release the phone Wednesday or just release the release date?

    lol, lol... We shall see...tomorrow night I will be pulling the late shift.

    I can't wait just hurry up and get here!! this mogul freezes every time I wanna send a text!!

    im on my 4th mogul do you think if I call retentions on Wensday (if that's the release which I have a gut feeling it will be.) they will send me the curve and send a return box for the mogul? I guess I would have to be polite and if they doesn't work resort to the I think ill take my business elsewhere.

    So when is Sprint going to email those of us who signed up to be the first to know when the Curve will be released? 12am on the 7th? Just wondering...

    If this happens for mothers day, does anyone know when 8330 stock will begin to arrive at stores this week?

    Also, if this is a 5/7 launch, can we expect the online store will do down tomorrow? Is that a reliable sign?

    Just curious...

    I don't think so. At least I'm hoping that's not what Sprint would do to notify its customers. You'd think they'd send a personal email because they asked for it in that online form.

    So anyone have an idea as to why the retail price is slated at $599 vs $440 at Verizon (price on the signage in Sprint Stores)? Also if you read the price breakdown that has been posted its $179 after a $170 instant savings and $100 MIR, so wouldn't it make more sense to be $449 for the retail price? Am I missing something?

    I just got off the phone with a service sale rep from Sprint who told me the date she has for the release of the new 8330 is the 7th of May but there's a possibility that it will be pushed back a week later.

    True @ kboogie because earlier this morning I was told the 8330 won't be lunched til the 1st of June and still that date was iffy... according to sale rep #1. So all I can do until then is simply wait and hold on to my money a little longer

    You know, I am the CEO of my company and I would never think to not educate telesales and local stores. Do they not have email? Do they not have group messaging? Does telesales in China where the calls go not have internet?

    I called tonight to change my plan status. I asked about the Curve and he had no idea. He said they gave them no dates. I said, that is so interesting, you can send out ads for Mothers Day Coming soon and at Best Buy and here at taddeladdel sales you have no idea? I said you know is kind of XXXXXXX lol He then laughed and said, I know..you are right but what do you do. Come on Dan...be the man and relase this dXXXX curve! I am now a crack addick!

    A rep in premier business customer service told me it will be available in all channels on May 7th. She stated that she was on a conference call this afternoon and this is what was stated during that call.

    07/07 Mogul (garbage)
    10/07 Touch (eCare replacement for Mogul- more garbage)
    10/07 iPhone (just had to have my own- hype wore off- sold 02/08)
    02/08 MacBook (always wanted one)
    04/30 8130 (Red)

    In just a little under a year, I've spent $2500 on "gadgets" (not counting the $60 monthly for aircard) when I could have had a BB all along. Out of the items listed, the only ones I'm truly happy with is the MB & Pearl....... go figure!

    You'd think that Sprint corporate could text message its employees, sales reps, customer service, etc. with info, huh? Maybe make use of their own technology to keep everyone informed and on the same page.

    I was in my local Sprint store yesterday. Was told "slated" for May 7th. I said, you ain't slick. I know what slated means... he started laughing & said, "have I ever steered you wrong?"
