    No way Sprint will get their hands on the Storm like BB this year. History tells us that Sprint will be about 3 months behinds VZ when it comes getting the lastest BB.

    Yea, carrier sales reps will tell you what you WANT to hear so that they can get their sales. Come man this is like basics 101 stuff.

    Well colour me impressed!

    You don't know who I know or what I know, so please....

    Point is that anyone who knows anything understands that reps are not reliable sources of information. And in your initial post, basically all you said is that a rep told you this information. So how are others on the site to take this thread more seriously than any other "I heard from so and so" thread? Think about it.

    I did hear from a tmobile rep when I was getting my BB that BB was coming out with a touchscreen Dec. That was said in July. Until I see it then I'll believe it. That's why this is posted on rumors area.

    Ah ha. Perhaps this would have been useful information to provide in your intial post. Now, wouldn't you agree?

    And really, please consider the following: Most ALL information about unreleased devices, OS's, apps, etc. is protected by NDAs. Generally, anything you hear from reps is either 1. false or 2. meaningless. The real information about things of this nature doesn't leave the mouths of people who are actually "in the know," as I am sure they wouldn't like to lose their jobs due to leaking information. Hence why everyone and their mum on Crackberry is skeptical of ANYTHING any carrier employee, be they management or sales reps, has to say.

    History also says that VZW is always late with new Blackberry devices, but it looks like they will be the first with this so I wouldn't go by that. I'm not saying Sprint will get it soon or not, but right now history is not a good indication of who is releasing what at what time. There's so much heavy competition everyone is trying to get out devices faster.... well except for AT&T and the Bold LOL. But there you go, it would have been expected that AT&T would have released this by now if we go with history. But things happen and things change.

    It's funny how WW3 breaks out around here when someone mentions they heard something (from a company rep) about a new device or something LMAO.

    Most people won't believe it until we see it or its comes up on this site or BGR or somewhere else reputable. Could you blame us?

    no i dont blame u i just ask that you dont insult me when i say i heard something from a reliable source thats all and i know that this is one i mean you guys have got to be kidding me rim has reps also ya know who work deals with the carrier company some blackberry models were negoitiated in mere days and distributed in that sam month so i dont understand why there are so many doubters people aren't expecting sprint to do something this big when you really should they are right now at the bottom of the totem as far as major wireless carriers they are going to do something to put them back on that level
