    So I realize its releasing sometime this month, but does anyone have an exact date for the release of the 8830 on Sprint this month?

    I'm going to try to get my hands on one Monday if its possible, I have a rep. calling me to discuss pricing.

    They are the virtually the same. GPS is great, but I prefer the keys on the 8300 - Curve; besides that, the device is flawless...

    Ya that was my only complaint too. My friend has the 8830 for Verizon and loves it, I just think I would like the keys on the Curve a tad better.

    But I'll still love the 8830 I know.

    Do you have any idea how long Sprint lets you try a phone out for? 30 days? Because if the Curve by some chance came to Sprint in the next 30 days I'd get that instead but I doubt it will.

    ...15th, as in 15th July, or Aug? They've not done much advertising.

    The 8830 will be in stores starting July 12th. You can call sprint and order it over the phone and it will arrive in 3-5 business days. The cost is $549 plus $12 for shipping and handling. It is a very nice device.
