    he is talking about the new curve 8520 and their new 3G phone, i think he might of meant 1 new blackberry and something else. They are supposed to be released on the 5th of August.

    He told me that they are getting a 3G blackberry, I have the 8320 and he was telling me that 8520 is the replacement of mine, it's just like the 8900 with out gps, then he said the 8900 would be upgraded to a 3G form so he said wait before getting the 8900. Look in the stores they get payed off us buying phones so he had a deal with me on the 8900 and told me to wait till Sept. I trust him.

    Did the salesman specifically say the 15th? I hope he's right but it's just odd none have showed up on the street while in testing.

    Thought they weren't allowed to release that date?

    I talked to my dad's corporate rep a couple weeks ago and she just said fall and that they didn't know when the date was... Gonna have to ask her again I guess, but I thought it wasn't due to be released til late fall?

    Tmobile sales reps in the stores are poor sources. Crackberry posters such as yourself often have the most reliable info before most of them do.

    a corporate rep has alot more to lose than a salesperson. the rep could be given more info and there are less of them in each area so its easer to track a leak. a salesman is able to deny it easily plus the salesman could be a member here or on another blackberry forum. i have met a fair share of salesman that were in the know and most belonged to one of the big forums.

    they are not always b'sing you especially if they tell you to wait since they work on commision lol

    I am highly skeptical of a September date from TMO but I don't have very good contacts there.

    As for the at&t date that is slated for early November unless there are problems with it when it comes to field trial in early August.
