    Called - guy said it wasn't coming up anywhere on his system, not showing up in inventory, hadn't been trained on it yet. Then said "frankly I don't sell many BB's, mostly Droids, can I interest you in a Droid?"

    Must be that you have to keep calling back until you get the right rep...
    The rep I got was a blackberry guy. We chatted about the 9650 while he was looking up info.

    I think the reps that like BB are more keen to find the info we want.

    I called and got the Monday confirmation!
    Confirmation that it will be in stores on Monday or that you can pre-order it on Monday?
    Also, what number did you call with 866-745-4679?

    It looks like its gonna be for sale on Monday (at least via telesales, hopefully online as well), but I dont know about in stores... someone reported the 25th for stores.. but my rep didnt say.

    And I just called *611

    I think every verizon number takes you to the same automated system. Just call a number and hit 0 to talk to a rep

    I just called 611, CSR told me I can order online or over the phone on Monday 8/15, phones will begin shipping on Monday. I have an open upgrade on one of my lines so it would be $199.99 or if its a new activation its $249.99 so I think that is where the $50 swing comes in. The line I have open to upgrade has been eligible for some time.

    Same. The rep was helpful, but VZW wasn't selling until Monday, and he mentioned the 25th date as well for when the stores will get the devices. Still pretty stoked!

    No worries here. We love getting any new info we can.

    The poor sales reps we just bombarded, however, may not be to thrilled with you

    Thanks for the #.. Can they put the cost on my account? That could be some random guy's number, don't wanna give my CC info.. haha
    Yes they can if your bill is not super high and you've made payments on time.
    FTR Verizon won't bill you for the phone unless you've had service with them for longer than 6 months.

    @VZWSupport on twitter just told me:

    We don't have a pre-order period for this device. Once the final release dates are confirmed, we will communicate that. ^MSF

    Haha as long as I get it wednesday I don't care who gets the sale (except maybe the taliban, I don't want them getting the sale). She was really nice though.

    I walked into a Verizon store today and one of the salespeople said they had a meeting about the new BBs. Then she asked another rep when they would be available and be told me Monday.......we shall see.
    I called CS to inquire and they only told me they now show it in the system.
    I will stalk some of the local stores until they sell one to me....

    I just spoke with a representative about 10 minutes ago that gave me the same response; "We don't have any information on this device." I explained that someone had just ordered the phone today and was a friend of mine and that either he was lying to me or I just wasn't talking to the right person. She put me on hold for about 5 minutes and then came back and said that the phone -launches- on the 15th. I made sure to verify that I could order it on the 15th and not just pre-order it. So bottom line is the Blackberry Bold 9930 launches on Verizon Wireless on Monday, August 15th.

    That being said, she said it was incorrect that someone ordered the phone today. I'm inclined to believe her.

    I called and was told it will be in stores the 15th but he was probably wrong though.

    I was told by two of the corporate locations around here that it'd be available in-store on the 18th. My advice would be to try indirect agents because they have their own inventory. I have someone trying to get me one by Monday or Tuesday if it's in their warehouse, but even if not I can just overnight it on Monday.
