    I have, more than once...they all seem to have their story straight, because I wind up with the same answer.

    Hmm, crap I just ordered a Rogers branded unlocked Bold. It wasn't prohibitively expensive, but maybe I'll just sell it when I receive it since it's unlocked. I don't really care about having an unlocked phone, I'm on AT&T regardless.

    Well, I guess its now up to Verizon to heavily subsidize their Storm and see if it can be had out the door for under $250. If not, iPhone it is

    And Obama will officially be the incoming president by then too - so it'll be a good day all in all.
    I second that!

    Finally, don't forget to add $10 to the monthly bill for your Bold purchase (if you are using an Edge Blackberry, like the Curve or 88XX); AT&T charges extra for 3G and it is NOT something you can opt out of.
    I think you were making the association with the iPhone to iPhone 3G? I may be wrong, but no AT&T does not charge you more for 3G.

    How is the battery life going to be on these ATT models? Any better than the previous Bold versions? I figured this was one of the reasons the Bold was delayed.

    Well, I called my store and they said it was originally supposed to be launched on the 27th, but now the definite date is Nov 4th with a price of $299 after MIR. The full MSRP price is not known at this time. I'm guessing $550 - $600

    I have an iPhone 1st gen and my bill is $59.99 + taxes. I have the 450/5,000 and the iPhone data package for $20.00. I have been told if I got the iPhone 3G it would then be $30 because of the 3G. I guess this is the same price as the Bold data so they would be the same.

    Well nice, now what I'm supposed to do on the 4th. Bought an unlocked Bold a week ago and early voted today, lol. I'll probably sell my unlocked one though and get the AT&T one anyways. I've been with them for about 15 years and am not going anywhere.

    I like how people will stay with AT&T because of the Bold and almost everyone hates it because of the poor performance on the iphone.

    I have a Blackjack I that I got before my iPhone and it is 3G. It always ran very well considering where I live. Never more than 2 bars on it or my Aircard for my laptop out here but still pretty fast. I have been with ATT since I got my first cellphone so I don't know anything about any other carrier.

    Scott, do you know if the mail in rebate is gonna be $50 or $100? Because for me, that's the deciding point on buying this phone. I'm not really gonna dish out $400 for a phone....

    Good point Scott. $100 MIR would be alot. The most I've seen for a rebate is maybe $50 and usuals are $25.

    AT&T confirmed the pricing this morning in a conference call. $549 w/o a contract.
