    Okay, I know this question has probably been asked a few times but why hasn't RIM given us a release date or somewhere in the ballpark? I've herd that it's ranged from July 27th-November for AT&T. Like many others, I want this phone now.
    July 27th-July 28th was a rumor for a Verizon release of the 9930, not for AT&T. However, you never know what can happen.

    Looks like I'll be coming back to Blackberry one more time when this phone finally gets released. Might have to buy it off contract though :/

    I really can't wait for this device to come out. I was going to settle with Tmobile's BBB 9780. But after checking out reviews on youtube, this phone will be well worth the wait.

    Just the physical appearance alone got me hooked. But, with all the features and specs included, I honestly fell in love

    ITU rescaled the requirements for 4G in December.
    HSPA+, LTE, and Wimax are now considered 4G

    Anyone else not like the flush call, menu, back and hang up keys on this device? I've always preferred them with separators like the 9700. That is probably the *only* thing that irks me about this new phone. Certainly not a show stopper. Heh heh.

    Perhaps RIM should look towards replacing the trackpad and the buttons and increase the display size and make the buttons capacitive instead. This way you get the full KB and larger display.

    iPhone was a short lived device for me on AT&T, and with it on Verizon its a non-starter. I don't care if its a free phone just not going back.

    What didn't you like about it? Just curious because I have an EnV Touch and it is basically impossible to type on the touchscreen, thus why I always use the keyboard when I flip it open.

    Hopefully the keypad will feel more like 9700 though, 9800 had stiff keypad

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you guys know if the next generation of blackberries would be "BIS free" ?! I mean, at this time, unlike iphone or android phones, we need a paid plan and a lot of "options" to use a blackberry. Using email, google maps or gmail app on the blackberry needs data plan etc., even if we want to use the phone with wifi only... which becomes sometimes annoying.

    On the other hand, i was suprised that the facebook app for bb upgrade brought this freedom of use. Now i dont need to pay a "facebook" option to use the facebook app, which could lead RIM to rise their fans...

    Well the idea of blackberry is they use their own server for internet services like email, bbm etc so there's no way its going to be BIS free..

    9900 keypad was excellent. It was just right and had the perfect amount of feedback

    What about the call/menu/back/hang up buttons? Are they like the 9300? This is my biggest concern...

    9900 is GSM (TM, ATT) and the 9930 is CDMA (Vz, Sprint)

    All the time I thought that difference between 9900 and 9930 is one having GSM and other don't. But both have GSM band. But after reading this thread I am confused. So... is there any technical differences between the two?

    Is one is better than the other? Sorry for asking dumb questions, I am confused about the two versions.
    The 9900 has GSM only, so it will run on At&t/ T Mobile. The 9930 has both GSM and CDMA. It will run on Verizon, Sprint, and possibly on other, smaller CDMA networks. It's possible that the reason it has GSM is so it can have "world-phone" capabilities like the 8800 series, in other words it will use CDMA networks here but can run on GSM which is used by most of the world.
