    Maybe just so they can't sell it before the release date

    I'm sure there would be some crazy people who would pay 999.99

    I'm pretty sure thats what there going for on eBay. Like us Canadian's, Europeans can't just make a drive across the border to pick up a torch.

    seriously, it's like the 2 of you are having the same conversation in 2 threads for some reason.

    saw that on hofo, but was beat to the punch on posting it. but who knows, photoshop can do wonders too.

    It's not photoshopped. I pin'd my buddy the SKU and he ran it on his system at futureshop. Its there.

    I believe you ek9....and the reason why we're probably having the same conversation on 2 threads Shawn, is that we're subscribed and desperately monitoring anything that might look like a Torch on the horizon - LOL!!

    Bell Canada - The BlackBerry Torch

    Interesting...

    Regarding that 999.99 price, we got 5 at our store last week. Sold all five within twenty minutes of opening for 875 a piece. They were AT&T Torchs which we unlocked and people were lined up to pick them up for 875 a piece which is crazy. We got some more now and we had another two go today for that price. Buffalos charging 600 a piece because they know us Canadians want to go down there and pick one up. Everywhere else in the states, its 500 a piece without contract. I just can't wait until they come out on Rogers so I can do my hardware upgrade.

    My upgrade isn't eligible until Nov - but when the i4 launched, Rogers gave me a deal to upgrade to that at the same price as a new customer.

    I'm hoping they give me the same deal with the Torch, if not, I'll just talk to them and tell them I'd rather have a BB than an iPhone.

    Did you just call them - and what price was it as a new customer?

    Nah, I logged into My Rogers account online and there was a huge banner at the top saying that I might be elligible, I clicked on it, answered a few questions and at the end I was elligible for iPhone 4 (16GB) for $159 (for 3 year contract renewal).

    Of course the Torch will have to be released for that to happen - if at all. Wonder if they'll have pre-orders?

    That was a bug. It was telling almost everyone that they were elligible. If you did a HUP within the last 2 years.....you aren't.

    It said the same thing for me and when I called Rogers to get one, they told me to basically stuff it. The online elligibility thing is broken.

    Well I just logged in again and checked and the banner (and offer) are still there.

    I'll give them a call tomorrow to double-check and post whatever I find here.

    About the i4 eligibility thing through Rogers... wasn't there something about how that was a promotional thing that was somehow subsidized through Apple? I'm not positive, but I swear I remember something about that.

    I bought my Bold 9000 in mid Nov '09. I've talked to the reps at Rogers numerous times (I always make sure it's a different rep so I don't look like I'm too overly enthusiastic about the Torch!) and each rep has looked up my account and assured me that I am eligible for a HUP (and I've been asking since since mid July). So after approx 20 mos of spending about $60/month on my cell bill I'm eligible to upgrade.

    Hope that helps some of you out with a timeline.

    Sometimes I could choke those ***** that work at Rogers.

    I just got off the phone with one of them (after 20 minutes of hold) and at first he said I was fully elligible for the iPhone upgrade and pricing (not a mistake in the system - it's legit). Then he told me that for my account they have special promotional pricing for the 9700 should I upgrade to that.

    This is where it all goes to ****.

    I told him I was just looking for HUP information and I'm gonna wait for the Torch. He said that because of AT&T's exclusivity, Rogers won't be getting the phone for 2-3 years - just like when the first gen iPhone launched. And even if I wanted to upgrade I would have to wait until Nov. (even though right before he said that, he said that I was fully elligible to upgrade NOW to an iPhone or 9700).

    That whole company is run by a bunch of morons. I don't know how many different answers I got from the reps when ask about the Torch. I've lost count because all of them seem to spew utter bs.

    Either way, there you go.
