    Smells like BS.
    I guess she could have been lying to me. Just trying to pass on what I have been told. I would have ordered one but the $450 price tag is a little steep for me. She told me that I can get it on my upgrade in July for $250. I'll wait for that.

    I bet by July you'll be able to get it on ebay for $350 or so. Might not even be worth using your upgrade ($250 does not include tax!, which is taxed at the full MSRP). So basically you'll end up paying close to what you could buy it for without the upgrade anyways.

    I paid $368 for mine shipped a week ago.

    This is horrible. All this cloak and dagger bull. Every time somebody calls about this phone you get the same ole corporate speech."We can't comment on unreleased phones", "that information isn't available", or my all time favorite " verizon doesn't have a bold". I think I'll start a thread " TOP 100 EXCUSES CUSTOMERS GET WHEN WE CALL AND ASK ABOUT THE BOLD 9650"

    I've been at work since 9 this morning and haven't been given any dates. Will check our equipment guide when I get back in an hour.

    I haven't read all the other posts, but the phones, both camera and without camera, are officially on our Equipment Guide. No price or release dates given.

    That's what I'm still wondering. Does it mean you can order it directly online or have to go into the store to order it?

    I'm a new poster here and am anxiously awaiting the Verizon 9650. Been out of contract since November. I talked to the manager of a Verizon store by my house today. He acknowledges that a lot of people have asked about the phone, but he has no definite date. It's not even in their system yet. He said that when it first gets in the system, it may show a price $99,999. That means it's not for sale yet. So I asked if someone came in with that kind of money, would you sell it to them - he said yes they would if he was crazy enough to spend it. He also mentioned that there may be a lot of Tours still in the warehouse and they're trying to get rid of as many as possible before the 9650 goes live.

    Anyway, he expects the release in June since it's in the summer catalog. He's heard middle to late June.

    Just another thing to add to the rumor list here. Maybe it's BS, I really don't know. But I hope it gets here soon since my old Razr is on its last lap and I won't jump ship to another carrier. I've had good service from Verizon. I do road trips in some remote areas and really like their coverage.

    Come on now, you all are supposed to know it all, and I'm just a stupid VZW rep, how would I know, right?


    Direct fulfill is when you come in the store and I ship you a product that is available in the warehouse but not in the store. Usually two day Fedex ship.

    The phone is in our equipment guide but it has no pricing listed. I'm going to dig around today to see where someone got that date.

    *IF* the phone is available for internet/phone orders on the third, anyone have any idea of Verizon typicalls sends the phones out next day air? I am just wondering if we might have them by Friday if that is the case. ??

    So, if I go in and order it on the 3rd "direct fulfillment," and it comes to my home two days later, do I still have to take it into the store to have it activated? Or, is it good to go with my number out of the box? You can't have two active phones with the same number so at some point I'd have my ESN in my 8330 turned off before the 9650 is turned on. How does that work on direct fulfillment?

    Your 9650 will come NOT activated. When you get it, you call and activate it which will deactivate your 8330. Direct fulfillment has nothing to do with activating it.
