    You going to fix defective buttons, trackpads, and other hardware issues with a firmware update? Really????? For Real?????????
    I don't mean to be putting my nose into an argument that I'm not a part of and I'm not entirely too technical either, but I'd be hard pressed to see how defective buttons, trackpads etc. could be network related. Choosing to delay the 9900 in order to milk the 9810 is one idea, but the defective buttons are a different league of problems all together.

    Was at my local ATT store picking up a car charger when i decided to ask the sells rep if he knew anything about the bb 9900 and when it would be released.. He said he had heard of it, but knew very little about the device, he then proceeded to tell me to check out www.crackberry.com for better information regarding the 9900 release... Thought that was pretty funny!

    AT&T has already announced it in their lineup (here). It is coming, just a matter of when.
    This is pure speculation. But, have you considered the possibility that AT&T may be in the process of negotiating the exclusive rights to sell RIM's first QNX-based BlackBerry in the United States? If so, it would make sense for AT&T to pass on adding "transitional" BlackBerry smartphones to their inventories such as the Bold 9900 and Torch 9860.

    I could only be lucky. If it's before the third week in September, I'll return my Torch and get the Bold 9900.

    So I went to a tmobile over the weekend and met a girl I went to high school with. She has worked there for 5 years and is a member of this site. I asked her when she'd have a Bold 9900 and she said the 31. I asked if she had any idea of just how much network I could have with the new unit as I have att. She insisted and called someone she knew, and both of them said I should be able to have hspa+ on the tmobile version unlocked. I know that I'm going to get flamed and be called a troll but wanted to pass on such information. She told me it is because the 3g bands and 4g(h+) are starting to be the same bands as atts. I know that previously the tmobile would only be edge on att, but they both insisted on the bold 9900 and future blackberrys they'd be compatible on both carriers due to tmobiles changes. I'm not trying to be correct about anything, just asking if anyone has heard of knows if this is fact.

    I would be more confident about buying a BlackBerry Bold 9900 from T-Mobile if the information provided by your high-school friend were to be confirmed by another source.

    Ecustomer- I agree. I mean I just added that fact because she is trustworthy. Otherwise, I was just asking if one of the more reputable people on here would chime in?

    negotiating for qnx now?not even by a long shot.rim won't let any carrier get info on qnx until 2012.at&t is not going pass the bold and torch.our experts have said that torch will be out first in sept.followed by the bold in oct.i understand where your getting the transitional stuff from.at&t did pass on the 9780.thats where you might have thought its better to just pass on the os 7 bunch as well in favor of qnx.we won't even see qnx in the early parts of 2012.maybe mid-2012,we might start hearing about it.the hope from my side is august 31 should be used as a day at&t makes a formal announcement regarding the releases of the bold and torch.that will ease the burden.

    Haha my bad, it's been a long day. I saw it and got really excited, but obviously this isn't it. I honestly think we'll hear something soon. It's just nuts how they won't even say anything. It'd be nice to even hear a release date, even if it is November. Just frustrating, but patience is a virtue I guess.

    850 MHz; 900 MHz; 1800 MHz; 1900 MHz;
    UMTS: Band I (2100); UMTS: Band IV (1700/2100); UMTS: Band VIII (900)

    Had a chance to use one at Verizon today. Super nice, unbelievably light and thin, keyboard is a bit bigger and a bit less snappy than the 9000. Seemed to me it will be worth the wait.

    Is it possible att is holding out to put pressure on RIM into giving them an exclusive on the QNX handset?
