    Where are you guys getting them, and for how much?

    I might just use my upgrade to get an iphone 4 and then sell it to fund a 9800
    That's my exact plan Don't think I can wait till the 23rd of Sept

    Everyday I have to control myself from buying one off ebay.

    I just don't wanna get one with a wiggle, or buttons that fall off...... How would I warranty one I bought off ebay?

    So I'll wait for an official rogers phone.

    Would you mind revealing your source?? We've all been hearing this for quite some time, but nothing has been confirmed.
    Working at a Rogers dealer cell phone shop for the past five and a half years has gotten us some friends down at Rogers. One of their reps showed me a memo saying we'd start offering them on the 16th.

    That sucks... Especially since rogers said "in coming weeks" on the 3rd.

    Got curious today while at work and didn't want to be providing false info to everyone on here so I called up my friend and it's now a September 24th, 2010 confirmed. They should release info about the release date in the first week of September !

    Thanks for that Jasbains.. Most people post something like that and disappear.. Hope this pans out.

    I heard from a friend of a friend who's a Rep that Rogers will be Sept 15th and Telus a month or so after. Take if for what you will though as no announcement has been made officially.

    Our entire work staff wants to replace their 9700's with Torch's and the Rogers rep who we deal with for our Corporate Accounts said they'd all be getting them on Sept 15th.

    I think realistically it's the 20th - 24th timeframe.
    Any earlier would be a godsend but realistically I say mark your calenders for mid September release dudes.

    20-24th is more end of Sept!

    i bought the torch on launch day in buffalo.. it was great! but i didn't want to risk not having warranty.

    the phone was good (no wobble etc etc etc) but it still made me feel uneasy!

    so i sold it! so i got my torch fix, just really missing it now.. but the 9700 is still awesome to use! : >

    Hey guys..heard from a Telus manager that they're releasing OCT 6. So that would support the Rogers first theory. Pissed Telus customer here..

    I just did a sort by views on all the threads within the 9800 forum and this thread ranked #9 (excluding stickies).

    #9!!! That's crazy! More than 10,000 views for everybody that's dying for this BB to be released by Rogers!
