    Perhaps the answer to the question "When is Verizon releasing the 9650?" is the simplest. When Verizon has no more 9630s to sell. Verizon just was not going to release the 9650 until it actually sold out the 9630s on the shelves, got RIM to take them back or jobbed them to another low cost CDMA carrier. Until then, there will be nothing but radio silence from Verizon.

    Why? The only internal Verizon document we've seen with a "launch date" showed May 27. Of course, that was from a month or so ago, before Verizon may have changed it again.
    My thoughts exactly. The most (and only) credible source so far has been an internal document leaked a month ago. Remember when so many people were drinking Tourboy's Kool-Aid because he used a lot of emoticons and insisted that he bore some arcane knowledge about the release date? The only tangible (or as tangible as we can get here) evidence has indicated a May 27 release date. Hearsay holds zero authority in a court of law, so what suggests that an anonymous user on an online forum is more reliable? Without names or pictures, I'm taking every speculative post with an entire shaker of salt.

    If it doesn't happen tomorrow, then I'm afraid to come back here. Am I the only one here who feels that the speculation and hearsay and counterfeit claims will be endless?

    Verizon briefly sold both the Storm 9530 snd the Storm2 9550 in their corporate stores.Same with the 8330 and it's replacement,the 8530. Within a month both older models were farmed out to VZW indirects. I still see new 9530s & 8330s offered for free at various VZW indirect dealers.

    Unfortunately, this article only cites information we all learned a month ago. At this point, this forum is probably the most reliable (all things relative) source of information. The article refers to possibly releasing the phone tomorrow, but its source (click Source at the bottom) explicitly states the following:

    "Anyway, no word quite yet on release date, but I hear it might be in the next week, two weeks at the most."

    I think that's the whole reason for the delay anyway, they needed to unload thousands of Tours before they started selling the Bold.

    I don't think those are necessarily "signs" since the website goes by location anyway. On the website I look at BOTH the camera and non-camera versions are listed as being in stock.

    It isn't sold out everywhere. I checked three areas and it is still available in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York.

    Camera and non-Camera versions are both still available on the website here in northern OH as well.

    Wish they'd get with the program, my 8330 is driving me nuts.

    Well, I guess we can all agree that it isn't completely sold out yet. While it is a small disappointment, it is also not really indicative of much more than what we already knew -- Verizon is bringing out a Tour replacement... soon.

    In the New York area (14217 zip) it doesn't say "out of stock" although the curves are out of stock here on the site. Oh well I just want to see this phone coming somewhat soon

    It looks like we all see different things out of stock. Either way it might be a good sign.

    I wouldn't read much into the in-stock status online of the Tours. I've seen it change many times before. The 8330s are a different story since the 8530 has been out for awhile now.C'mon,5 more posts............

    Of course today's looking good. We're almost at 5000 posts.With a little effort and whining we should be able to reach that goal by the end of today.
    If asked a couple of weeks ago... I would have never thought this thread would reach 5,000 posts! Verizon needs to hurry up. Tomorrow is a new day! I'm hopeful.

    The question is.....what will come first, the Bold for Verizon, or this thread hitting 5000 posts?
    Not to quote myself but....I guess the question is being answered

    The prize for being number 5000 is a brand new 9650.
