    It you read 'between' the lines in this article, something tells us (CrackBerry.com) that AT&T are about to launch the BlackBerry Curve, 1st June!?!

    NASHVILLE (Billboard) - In a first for both sponsor and artist, BlackBerry will present musician John Mayer's upcoming North American tour, Billboard has learned.

    Portable communication device BlackBerry will use the Mayer tour to help launch its upcoming AT&T-carried mobile phone, Curve.

    The 40-date BlackBerry Presents John Mayer in Concert tour begins June 1 in Ridgefield, Wash., with Ben Folds supporting. Live Nation is promoting the majority of dates on the tour and reports that sales are strong in the early going.

    I'd be surprised now if AT&T didn't launch on June 1st.

    Hey Kasper and Navilyn,

    What about the June 7th AT&T launch in New York City that Boy Genius mentioned in his post on his website. Click on The Boy Genius Report for the details.

    So does this mean that there will be several launches for the CURVE, i.e, Washington, New York City and Los Angeles?

    There usually are several launch parties, and with several different dates.

    I can't wait for the Curve to come out! But I'm a bit skeptic on the keypad as was reviewed by Shiny Shiny being chunky and tacky to press. I hope they fixed that issue. I used to buy my cell phones online at letstalk.com, even my current BB 8700g. But this time, I'll check out the Curve first hand before buying it. BlackBerry phones are all good...still, though, don't want to just be sucked into all these hype.

    Centaurie, welcome to CrackBerry.com!

    I think the initial 'crappy' keypad was from a test / beta device where when you pressed a key it looked like the whole keypad was 'going in' (up and down)...

    I'm sure if RIM are worth their salt, the released version will be nothing like that...

    Does anyone have insight into how we will be able to purchase the Curve through AT&T? Will it only be available via telephone ordering channels, via the web, or how will this be done?

    Usually it is available online and via telephone at the same time, retail outlets could be a little behind as far as getting their stock.

    So what should I do? I have Verizon currently and I need to set up a brand new account with ATT including a new phone number when I order the curve. I'd like to do it on line since it's easier than taking time off work to go into my dreaded Cingular store, which has some of the most clueless employees I have ever seen.

    Will the Cingular site give me a choice to choose phone numbers? I am assuming the choices for plans will be easy to navigate. I don't think I can take my Verizon phone number as I still have the 2 year contract till August. But I don't mind that since I need a second line for business anyway.

    Any advice? Has anyone done a new account on line?

    Thanks. Katherine

    What is this "ATT exclusivity for 90 days" I read on boygeniusreport? So T-Mobile users are going to have to wait until Sept 1st??? That's a bunch of BS....

    Kath, you can take your old phone number to AT&T, however that will terminate your Verizon account and you will be charged the early termination fee. When you order your AT&T phone, you will be given an option of area codes (and sometimes the next 3 digits) of your new number.

    Eight08: That is correct (if it's true).
