    Should I still have a sliver of hope they'll be releasing them tomorrow for Rogers or is that completely out of the question and redirect all my hope/energy to the 13th/15th?
    I am hoping so, but i aint holding my breath

    Twitter.com/jon4lakers and technobuffalo are saying the Bold 9900 is coming to Rogers August 9th. Seems legit, and this guy/site is pretty credible.

    I called rogers twice yesterday and both representatives said september 15. Lol.

    Today August 9th 09:30am i just spoke to a friend of mine at Rogers who is a rep in Montreal Canada.

    Said that the BB9900 now appears in his system and that the order is coming on the 10th of August

    Im not with Rogers but if Bell dont get their stuff together fast i have no problem switching as i am not under contract anymore

    If you're right your signature should read "Tomorrow is the today we hoped for yesterday".

    I've just called into 5 Rogers Wireless Stores and two Best Buy stores.
    The Rogers stores cannot verify any release dates, and do not have the phone in stock.
    Both Best Buy stores say the release is at least after the 15th, and will sell it if they have it in stock.

    Rogers Customer Relations has the phone in the system, ready for upgrade, but I'm pretty sure once they get to the pricing page, it's "$." as they have no pricing to use to bill for the hardware yet. I can confirm as well, they've mentioned the outright pricing to be $499. I asked them if I could order one phone outright from them, but they said it can only be done in store, despite my offer to give them my credit card information over the phone.

    I've called a couple Best Buys in Ottawa. Both have the SKUs in the system but no date yet. One of them said the price outright was $599 but can't sell them off-contract until a month after release.

    Oh Rogers, WTF??? I have a bad feeling Rogers is releasing the 9900 first at the major Rogers Plus stores and through CS. They did this with the Bold 9000 if I'm not mistaken. Or it could have been the 9700. You could only get it through Rogers first. Then it hit Best Buy, Future Shop etc. a month later. I hope this is NOT the case.

    I work at Rogers and it's in our systems now, just waiting for shipments to go out to stores. It will be before Bell/Telus.

    is the price 499 or 549?

    Pricing not absolutely confirmed, waiting game with competition.

    The "Launch Date" being Aug 9, and Aug 9 being today is killing me too.
