    I see that the current price point on the 9930 is $249, and i'm sure most of us were expecting a $199 price point... How many of you will wait for it to drop in price??? I work for a Sprint store, and the only other device that was $s249 was the Samsung Epic, and it took about 6 months for it to drop; definitely not waiting that long. Do you think it will drop a week after the initial release, like Rogers did??? Or will some of you hold not and NOT spend that extra $50 bucks, OR is it worth it to have it the day it comes out??? I'm on the fence right now (but more than likely, i'll kick out the extra $50 & just charge it to having a new device).

    I've been toying around w/the VZW site and I'm showing $200 for the phone when I use my company's discount. Some of you may want to try it...

    I can not will not and DO NOT want to wait. I am currently using a Droid 2 and have been since the beginning of July. That is 6 weeks too long so tomorrow I will be a happy customer.

    If the price drops in less than 30 days you can get a credit for the difference!

    I've waited long enough. This will be my 1st BlackBerry and I've been lurking these forums for a few months now. The second I read it was available, I ordered.

    if this was gonna be my first blackberry it sure would've been ordered by now but since is not and i'm on my bold 9780 no rush i'll wait for a price drop 249.99 is a lil high with a 2year contract ! 199 is passable for me.

    Welcome. Wondering what device you are coming from?

    To answer the OP I am waiting...waiting for it to be delivered tomorrow. This storm can't be in my history soon enough.

    Those of us that ordered today online or by phone and selected overnight shipping will get our phones tomorrow.

    I could not wait to order this phone. Even if it does drop $50 a month from now and I'm unable to get the difference back, that would be like paying $1.66 per day for the privilege of having the newest gadget. I really didn't want to spend another month with my iPhone 4 as I really miss having a physical keyboard.

    I will wait for it to drop to $199. Until then, I might try Torch.

    I ordered mine from VZW today for the $249. I'm not gonna wait and hope over a whole $50. I want it and have the money for it. So I bought it.
