    Okay, I'm as sick and tired of the false "confirmed" release dates as the rest of you, but I just called TigerDirect to inquire about my BBB back-order (ordered July 28), and they told me it should SHIP TOMORROW. They said their shipment still hadn't arrived but that it was slated for delivery tomorrow and they'll in turn deliver to me. Good luck to all who have waited so impatiently for so long.

    It's a reputable site, and they state that it's an unlocked phone and even warn customers to check for frequency compatibility. I have my doubts that it actually will be shipped tomorrow, but I do think it will be a street, unlocked version. I'll let you know.

    Their site states it will be available when it's available. I don't know why it would come from Europe, since the launches so far in Europe are carrier based, and it's an unlocked phone. But your message stated you wanted a "non unlocked" phone, which I assume means you want one unlocked. Why would you want a locked phone? If you want a locked phone, you'll need to get it from the carrier obviously.

    The ad for them on their website says the ETA is September, I'd think they would update that if they are ready to ship them. (It also says that there unlocked cell phones come from "all over the globe").

    Kev778... did you actually read it??? The FCC has already approved the BOLD for US carriers back in July, a topic has been discussed before this post as well. I believe this can also be verified at the FCC's website. Most all information points to AT&T still having issues with the Bold's software. Which also would explain why they are still releasing updates to 4.6. Not trying to be harsh or anything. Just as tired as everyone else about speculation as to why the Bold has not been released yet.
