    Completely agree, even the upgrade from a 9650 to a torch is years of difference (I'm not a big fan of torches, but the faster processes etc greatly improves its usability)

    I mean I have a phone that is about a year old now (9650) and it's sickening that it takes a good 8 minutes to do a hard reset... Torch has a tiny bit better processor and takes a whopping 2ish minutes. Browsing experience.. I am sitting right next to my brand new router with my 9650 and the browsing experience is terrible (hardware is what slows it down of course) but it is literally unusable unless you are on a heavily modified mobile site. Many other reasons, random freezes for no reason etc. Anyone running a 9650 and older, I have much respect and I'm with ya on the agonizing wait.. Those of you with the 9780 or higher and are complaining/yelling at us to chill the ef out about the new phone can go f*** themselves (;

    Not saying anyone here is saying that of course, but I completely agree with ya buddy

    To OP,
    What's the point of your Thread, if you can't even give a fake timeline? What do you mean by it won't be Sept? Is it going to be late or is it going to be early?

    I don't know anyone from RIM, but I hope it is going to be early, not late.

    I can only speak for Sprint, but when you re-up your contract with Sprint, and you purchase a new device at the time, you get a $99.00 credit on your next bill. Also BlackBerry is doing a tradeup program (my Sprint Curve 8330 trade in is only $5.00 (USD) but they include a $45.00 promo credit also. and if Sprint is still doing the instant rebate program when the Bold 9930 is released $199.00 new/upgrade price, i'll only have to pay $75.00 approx. (taxes included)

    I don't understand why the OP wouldn't just say the date lol. He isn't the one who is testing, he isn't under some sort of NDA or anything apparently. Just being top secret for the sake of being top secret. Drop a date bro.

    You see, bro, when someone (who probably IS covered by an NDA) gives you privileged information, you generally don't go around posting it on internet message boards.

    Because when you do that, the person who IS covered by an NDA doesn't like you anymore and you don't get any more privileged information from him or her.

    But at any rate, RIM really does need to hurry up. I wonder if they realize how marginalized they are becoming, even in the corporate markets. I've been using an 8520 spare for two months now since my 9000 died, and if the iPhone 4S drops first, I'll grab that instead.

    I can't go on using this turd for much longer, so whoever is the quickest will win. RIM needs to realize they are competing in a completely different environment than even 2 years ago.
