    Official* AT&T 9900 is NOT available on 08/21/11; 9810 IS available.

    I can see it on the website. Just not sure whether or not I want to order it, but $50 is tempting.

    If you want the 9900, than wait for it. AT&T is releasing the 9810 because they know they won't sell as much if they released it together with the 9900

    Just stating it here since there were some saying that their reps were "not confusing it with the 9810" and that it'd be released on the 21st.

    How come AT&T are abandoning the Bold line? The 9780 never even got released

    The 9780 was "exclusive to T-Mobile," but AT&T knew about the pending bolds, so they decided not to stock the 9780.

    AT&T isn't abandoning it. They are simply hedging their bets on the touch phones because that's the craze these days. Torch 9810/9860 = iPhone. "Oh, it's LIKE the iPhone!"

    The 9800 was an exclusive to AT&T so they would naturally release the 9810.
    The reason the 9900 is not being released right not has nothing to do with exclusivity deals; rather it's got to do with SAT. Once any software/hardware issues are resolved for AT&T they will release. AT&T releases are always more complicated than T-Mobile.

    Judging from everyone's complaints about the 9900 bombing, freezing, leaking and ****ting itself, I'd consider it a favor that AT&T has kept us out of the dark.

    Soon, time will tell!

    The purpose of this thread was to simply squash the rumor that was going around.
