    No, the Bold 9780 was never released on AT&T.
    If you want, you can go the alternative route and purchase one online.
    Canadian 9780's from Telus, Bell, Virgin Mobile Canada, and Rogers will work like a charm once unlocked.
    diegonei and Laura Knotek like this.

    Do not buy a 9780 that is branded to T-Mobile USA. If you do, you will not get 3G. AT&T and T-Mobile use different frequency bands for their 3G networks, so if AT&T is your carrier, you will only get EDGE (2G) on AT&T with an unlocked T-Mobile device.

    If your wife is due for a upgrade, wait a few months and get the 9900. It is WELL worth waiting for.

    Agreed, the 9900, 9860 and 9810 will all be arriving in the coming months.

    No but it can be unlocked from many carriers and used on AT&T by inserting the SIM card and updating service book on your BOLD.
