    Do we know for sure which providers will carry it? I'm praying Sprint is one of them so I can get rid of my Style.

    Most providers will carry the 99xx. Sprint is one of them.

    Although not officially announced, it appears that all the big carriers will carry the 9900/9930. (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint)

    If you look on the Blackberry website and go to the "Sign up for updates" part of the Blackberry Bold page, there are a large number of choices in the drop-down menu to indicate your carrier name. I don't know if that means anything…

    all networks running HSPA+ 4G will carry the 9900. In Canada, that would be Bell, Rogers/Fido, Telus for sure

    Yes all 4 big US carriers will have the Bold 9900/9930...not sure if they'll have the same relase dates, but IMO they'd be within 2 weeks of each other.

    Well, that's good to know. I'm dying to replace my Style and I was thinking about getting a Bold 9650 from Sprint when I'm eligible to upgrade in 3 months. I even toyed with switching to AT&T and getting the Torch. But if Sprint is going to get the 9900, I'll try to live with the Style a little longer. Thanks!

    I have a Curve 8330 and have held out TWO upgrades now, my 2yr contract ended w/Sprint on 06/07 so I'm free to go wherever, but for me, Sprint is the least expensive. My fiance also has a Style 9670 she got w/her upgrade in March (she loves flip phone form factor) I was hoping to be usuing the Bold 9930 by NOW at least but Sprint will have it IMO end of July to end of August...I hope. The Bold 9650 looks like a good device, but if I were you, WAIT for the Bold 9930.

    I think ALL four would have to at least carry the Bold 99XX it's RIM's flagship device, while the others (we know Sprint will carry the Torch 9850 also) IMO Sprint will also at least pick up either the Curve qwerty keyboard or Curve Touch too. I'd be totally shocked NOT seeing the Bold 99XX on all North American (US and Canadian carriers)
