sprint emp says torch coming to 4g 1st quarter...
Just came from the sprint store, was talking a sprint emp about BB, while getting my evo 4g serviced, he had os 6 on his 9650. He showed me the new style, we both agreed it sucked.
He told me they were getting the torch and will be there flag ship device with 4g.
take it how u want it, but he had his bb modded to the core lol and seemed to know what he was talking about.--Ah... g/fs are overrated - your blackberry never leaves your side, is intrinsically cheaper (monetary-wise), and it knows exactly the way you like it (data anyway).--

Wouldn't that be nice... but yeah, if the Torch was gonna be 4G (or any bb for that matter) I think CrackBerry would have mentioned it. Torch coming 1Q wouldn't surprise me though.Need an app for your blog/business or want some BB10 coding help? PM me for rates

The Sprint Rep I bought my 8530 from told me it was EVDO Rev A. She also told my sister that her curve would sync with Windows Live Calendar out of the box. If they can't even get minor details like these right, what makes you think they are going to know when (or if) the Torch is coming?

I heard in the grapevine as well that a Torch like model is coming to sprint, but an upgraded version with better specs and 4G. We will see. Sprint seems to get the better bb devices lately. VZW seems to focus solidly on droids

If its true then really its too late
By time they do get it (If they do) AT&T and T-mobile will have Torch 2!!! Really I dont think Sprint care's about Blackberry anymore they are giving us Blackberry devices to pass the time and shut people up.
im just passing the info along, if u dont like it or believe it then dont post simple as that.
the guy was knowledgeable and a BB fanatic, even wearing a BB os6 shirt, having cosmetic mods to his bb most ppl wouldnt do, im pretty sure he is in the know about BB devices.
he also didnt bring up the torch like "Hey guess what!", I brought it up, we started talking about os 6, the new style and other things, i said are you going to be getting the torch, he said yes but it wouldnt be until next year 1st qtr, and it will be 4g since its going to be they're flagship BB device.
you guys complain about the extra 10 a month but infact would u rather have sprint go to tiered data plans like att, verizon and soon to be tmobile?
i rather be the extra 10 a month and have it unlimited.

I just left a corp Sprint store with my new 9670 in hand. The salesman was rather insistent that a 'Torchish' BB was indeed coming to Sprint in the not so distant future. I told him to either show me proof or go blow smoke up someone else's ***.
There's got to be some sort of basis for this 'rumor' but I'm not buying into it - yet.

Too many rumors for it not to come out, I'm on board when it does for sure. Thats why I havnt grabbed the Bold yet.I'll even pay the extra $10 per month, but I wont like it .We dont even have 4G here yet. I will just figure a way to download full length movies all day long to make up the difference LOL.

+1 for me on the Torch and vertical sliders. For me, this is the best of both worlds. While I'm not holding my breath on the rumors, I am saving my upgrade in case something does come forward. In the meanwhile, OS 6 on my bold will suffice.

They can't release it sooner due to ATT.
