    While yes that car salesmen couldn't sell me what isn't on the lot yet... I bet they know everything about the 2012 models getting ready to hit the lots
    That isn't always the case. I have heard the funny lines of, "I don't read about cars I just sell them."

    And there were MANY dealers at the time that knew MUCH MUCH less about the vehicle in my avatar than I did. Of course that vehicle sold itself but you get the idea.

    I just called cal back and he wasn't in but now the girl who answered is telling me that she won't get them till fall? wtf? Damnnnn u Cal!

    So I called Verizon and the CSR actually told me that she sees the memo of them getting the 9930 and it has NO release date, BUT the positive thing is she looked and is aware they are getting the phone but no date to give out

    Hey PK, can you guess for us what it means when the old Bolds get deleted from the VZ site AND store displays all in one day?

    I called the local Verizon store and all I got was "No, we don't have a date for arrival".....so I called a Verizon reseller in a nearby town (Sayre, PA) and specifically asked about the 9930 - THIS guy put me on hold for a minute, only to come back and tell me the phone was on their "end of life" list and that they were very "scarce". ROFL

    All this runaround from Verizon is making me depressed. haha. Every single time you call, you either get what seems like a scripted "I have not heard of any new bb coming to Verizon soon", or "We will get it, just not sure when" or you get some people who think they know when these phones are being released, but really don't.

    I know that Verizon has this reputation of holding out until the last second to announce their phones and then release them, but for once I would just like to know when these things are coming out. I know by reading the other dozen posts about Verizon and these phone that a lot of people are getting frustrated with them for not at least officially announcing that they will carry the phones. I do appreciate the fact that you heard from someone who says they are getting the 9930- that gives me much hope.
    I just have a feeling that if Verizon doesn't at least make an announcement before Sprint's release date of 8-21 that many people are going to switch carriers (This seems to be the threat people are throwing out when trying to get information about these phone). I personally hope that Verizon is smart enough to put both the 9930 and the 9850 out before Sprint in an attempt to gain some customers who don't want to wait for Sprint's relaese date.

    But thanks everyone for calling your local Verizon stores and finding out what you did, it at least gives me reassurance that they actually are getting this phone (although I would have been stoked to see them released today as Cal said).

    Just called the store here in Reston VA, and he said he doesn't know, but he said they just took some BBs off the shelves and reps from RIM are coming in shorty to talk to them. So it might end up around the time Sprint gets them i hope.

    Called another place close and that guy was clueless, hasn't even heard of the phone.

    Yeah it seems that way, i mentioned sprint getting them the 21st also, and he was nice and just said that they dont know a date, just that they pulled the bolds off the floor and awaiting ppl to come in and i guess train them for the new phone.

    I just called the Reston store and was told they don't have a confirmed release date, but possibly the 18th.

    really? - people would switch to sprint to get the phone a week (or two) earlier? - that's absurd

    I think he just said that so maybe they would work better to give him information in fear of losing a customer. I dunno i could be wrong.
