    Not 100% confirmed by Verizon but I read a article that they will carry it. If I can find it, I will post the link.

    Here is the link. Just do not count on the release date for Verizon to be correct. With At&t having a delay on the release of the BOLD, it will push back other carriers as At&t it getting a certain period of time for exclusive rights.

    If only ATT would spend as much money and effort improving their network coverage as they do obtaining exclusive rights to the latest and greatest gear.

    I'd rather have last year's gear that works, then this year's gear that doesn't.

    It appears the Bold delay is for much the same problem as the 3G iPhone - it's only been out a month and a half and there's already been a class action suit filed. People aren't happy.

    To be fair, the iPhone problems isn't all AT&T's fault. AT&T likes to test their devices before they go on sale. Apple didn't let AT&T get its devices testers to check out how the 3G iPhone works on the network. They did some limited testing and hoped that the code would work its magic. Had Apple done the same thing RIM is doing, we would't have seen the iPhone until September rather than July.

    That class action suit against Apple is exactly what they deserve. I hate apple anyway. But, I thought vzw was getting the thunder, not the bold?

    From what I read Vz is definetly releasing the Thunder/Storm and a great possiblity of the Bold. I would'nt go as far as saying Summer 09 but around March-May time frame its should drop. Exclusive only last for so long and Vz is not stupid to let this go till summer '09.. They would have to get the Bold at sometime or they would lose customers to the competition.

    P.S. My 2 years is up in April '09 they better get crackin lol
