    Local store near me sold 40 on opening day (yesterday).
    I don't think we will see bold until the hype of the incredible is gone.
    Yeah i agree. I think they will make a silent opening. Then start making a hype about it when they have got all the incredible sales they want.

    I'm glad for the delay, if the 9650 had been released earlier I would have used my NE2 (saved since September of last year!) to get one. Fortunately, the phone was not released before word of the new 9670 Flip arrived so now I'll be waiting for that.

    To me, a flip form factor is the most important feature of any phone I own, I'd still be happy with my Pearl Flip if I had ever learned to use that weird keyboard.

    Maybe we can start a 4600 post thread giving false release dates on the 9670?

    My feeling on that is , this is their way of clearing out inventory
    They also have a buy one get one free on the 9630 but I am sure you can't get both deals.

    ? what do you mean? if you bought a 9630 with BOGO then you could activate PTT (Free) on both.

    No if you want the PTT you get one Tour

    If you don't you could get the BOGO and no free PTT

    BTW the PTT monthly fee is $29.99

    PTT is $29.99/month? I could have sworn that I'd heard a commercial and seen it advertised as an additional $5/month. At that price, I'd be even less interested than before!

    I am guessing that the $29.99 is for people who don't have data plans.

    * Free Push to Talk offer is available for a limited time with Push to Talk subscriptions added to compatible BlackBerry smartphones on voice plan $34.99 or higher & eligible data package."

    The ad I seen was for the TOUR and it said 9630
    I understand what you all are saying but seems odd to me

    Oh and now there is a story about it on the front page of CB
