    Hi,

    I have order my bold this morning, 749$ from rogers... last upgrade was last year, but you don't get good deal when you are already a customer, that's a real joke.

    I have also taked the 6gb promo for 30$/month, that's the real good part of the deal.

    Personally, this sounds horrible to me. I got my Curve for $50 on a contract, and unlimited data for $30. Why is everything so expensive in Canda?

    In the UK you have pay monthly contacts and also pay as you go customers who do not have contracts. Do you also have this sort of setup in canada ?

    I will probabely, terminate my existing contract and take out a new one to get the better deal.

    **, yeah, a beautiful 3 years contrats on top of that... I was having 1,5 years left, so I was having the choice to pay 400$ to break my contracts, pay 400$ for the phone or upgrade for 750$... I don't want congrats for this, I found that expensive too, but I was wanting the 6gb promo for 30$ before it end at the end of the month, that was the only way to get it, and I don't want does stupid Iphone.

    Wowzers! I had to talk them down, until they finally decided to give it to me for $399. I threatened to cancel my service (which I had no intensions of doing), so they gave me the Bold on an early upgrade, 3 months of unlimited calling, plus I got the data package for 30 bucks, SWEET!

    Now I'm just waiting for it to GET HERE! Lol

    The full price of the phone, which is what you paid I guess. I was MOST CERTAINLY not having that.

    749? You must be RICH! I love technology and all, but no way would I ever pay nearly 800 for a cellphone.

    I want a bold just like everyone else but I think I'll wait. Heard on good authority that it should be in the states by late october or early november. $750.00 is mortgage and a carnote for me.

    I rang my carrier today to see what a Bold will cost me. It will be $237 to get out of my contract but if I wait a month it wont cost me anything so the long wait begins. I dont know if I can last the month.

    I pay it pretty expensive, but I will be one of the first to get it, and I upgrade my phone each year, (and last year I was without a dataplan, so only 15$/month for the email + 25$/month for the voice plan) and I think rogers calculate your upgrade price depending on how much you spend. I will maybe call back to complaint or ship it back for refund if I can't get a better deal or simply keep it, I don't know yet, who care anyway, it's only few buck.

    At the end of the day it all comes down to just how much disposable income each individual has and how badly they want a Bold!

    We all have to make up our own minds as to just how much one is personally worth to us, and as the old saying goes "you pays your money, and you makes your choice"... or should that be the other way round!
