    Ok so everything is officially set for the 21st, this Sunday, for the release of the BB Bold 9930 on Sprint. Question is, will it be available in-store or is it available online for ordering on this date?? I was really counting on going into the store to pick this up as soon as the f'in doors opened, but after speaking to a few reps online I'm told that this date just means it's available for order and that stores would be getting it later in the week. WTF, please tell me this isn't true! We were supposed to have this ish before Verizon, but now we're here waiting... 2nd again!

    It's fairly standard to be available online before being available in stores, especially since units have to be shipped to a store to be available in a store.

    I understand that it's fairly standard for online ordering to be available before arriving in stores, but this is frustrating! Damn you Sprint! We play second fiddle to Verizon once again, WTF!

    How is it playing second fiddle? It's a six day difference, dude.

    If you really want to complain about being second fiddle, I would go for the WiMax end of life versus LTE argument rather than this...

    Well I knew Sprint's WiMax was gonna have problems once Verizon brought out their LTE so I steered clear of it. That and the fact that BB's don't have 4G capabilities it never really mattered to me.

    My thoughts exactly!!

    I can't even pretend to be in AT&T users' shoes... they should shoot themselves just for being so "loyal" to AT&T.

    I believe it will be out on the 21st, IN STORES as well. That's the impression I got from the CS reps I spoke to.

    I'm patient. I know I won't get it right away. The 9900 would be my secondary
    device to replace my current BB.

    And you probably will as long as they have more subscribers.... Makes sense to me.

    Sprint really shot themselves in the foot with WiMax. But T-Mobile takes the cake claiming the first "4G" BB. It's sad what these cell companies are able to claim in their advertisements.
