    Well, folks.. Im a diehard BB fan, even though I am a current Android user. I don't have a job right now so that 199.99 is just out of reach!

    Ugh, Maybe if i sell my Droid Incredible I can get most of the price back.

    Hang in there...They will be showing up used and you'll be able to get a refurbished one soon enough.

    If you're eligible for a $199 upgrade and you have a lot of accessories you might be able to get close to $199 for it. I got the Droid 3 about a month ago. I had to pay retail for the 9930 so in the end after I sell the D3 with the ton of accessories I have for it the 9930 will end up costing me right around the upgrade price of $199 I'm guessing. I'm out of work too but luckily I made enough last year that unemployment covers my living expenses and then some.

    Get it unlocked, and sell it on eBay Australia for $500.00.

    I just used my upgrade in March so I am sad too. Really loving my torch though so I guess I can wait.

    Same boat. Just upgraded in March so there's no way I can afford to do it again now. Oh, well. I'll just wait it out. Hang in there!

    HA! Here in Canada, TELUS wants $629 PLUS TAX! $710 for the phone! $300 with a 3 year contract price! I wish I only paid $199!

    I was Uberexcited for this phone way back when.

    The reality now is that my 9650 works fine for me and I just can't make the investment ina new phone right now. Perhaps around the holidays it will get Uberdiscounted.....

    I'm waiting as well, $200 for a phone I may have for a year is crazy.

    You guys seem to pay a big premium on the handset there. I will get mines for free on a 2 year contract!
