    Why not? Why wouldn't Blackberry give Verizon the Bold as well? I want to get a Blackberry but don't want to wait for the niagara in july/august. Do i just get the Curve 8300? Are there any plans on getting the Bold or the Curve 8900 to Verizon?

    Thanks guys.

    I'm sure they'll get it when it starts to become out of style just like when they got the Curve.

    Ummm didn't u post this in the Curve 8900 forum as well..Verizon is getting the Tour and they have a Storm ATT and Tmobile doesn't so y send the Bold or Curve to Verizon when they hve a storm and the Tour is on the way...real talk the Tour looks like a cuvre/bold to me but that's my Opinion..

    May be out of style, but it was the #1 selling Smartphone for Q1. Pretty impressive for "out of style."

    Sometimes companies ie AT&T will enter into a contract with RIM or other phone makers, to make a phone only for them. Other times the contract just specifies a certain time limit, then RIM is free to sell it to any carrier. It is all in the contract.

    The Niagara/Tour in July/August is the CDMA equivalent of the Bold.

    Because it was the LEAST expensive.

    they will both have the same OS(5.0) so thats a scratch
    the Bold has a faster processor 624Mhz>528Mhz
    the bold is the only BB that is capable of simultaneous data and voice
    the Bold has WiFI

    the Tour has a better camera
    the Tour has more application memory
    what exactly would i be switching for? i have never ran out of memory with my Bold and i could care less about a camera...
    the cameras on the Bold and tour are basically bad and worse
