    I am a Verizon customer using a Bold 9650. I live in Montana and DO need a booster and external antenna in my car. I have a phone specific cradle which charges and connects the phone to my booster. I switched to the Bold when the new Curve came out without the external charge contacts on the back of the phone. Now, I understand Bold is going the same way. Does anyone know if any Blackberry phone will have the external contacts in 2011 or beyond?

    I think they moved contacts to the lower sides of the device like the Bold 9700.

    They're at the very bottom. I believe the 9700 were on the sides, if I remember correctly, but can't remember the 9000.

    Well it would be ridiculous to get rid of them. How would anybody use a charging cradle? Newer Curves don't have them???

    Seems the "cheaper" models never have them any more. I'd hate to see them go away. My Bold lives in my cradles, work and home, unless it's on my belt.

    The last few Curves haven't had them, but I would think they will remain on the Bold, Torch etc since they are such a wanted feature.

    Torch (9800, 9810) do not have them. USB charging only.
