    Not to be a party pooper, but wondering if anyone else has a bad feeling about whether or not tomorrow is really the day for online/phone orders. I've been hopeful of this date, however with there still being nothing at all as far as even an announcement by Verizon yet, I am starting to wonder.

    i'm getting that same uneasy feeling. i wish they would say something, anything, and give us an official date. i did talk with vzw last night about my ne2 and told them i was planning to get the bold on thursday online but they didn't respond. i guess that's better than saying it won't be coming out.

    make sure you make a backup of your current phone using DM. that creates a .ipd file which will back up your telephone contacts and calendar.

    I always completely erase by using JL-Comdr but maybe someone has another easier idea for you.

    PS only 15 hours and 15 mins left!!!! WOO HOO

    On the contrary, I think our posts provide a needed emotional and spiritual boost for the lost and forgotten VZW customers who have been subjected to long periods of waiting and no news.

    We will play by your rules and include information in our posts as well. However, if there is someone here REPORTING us to you ; someone who is a killjoy; someone who would deny us our fun; someone who is being a SNITCH; that someone is the lowest form of life on this earth.

    And since this post has been informational,
    I can now say:

    WOO HOO 15 hours and counting!!!!!!! to the 9650!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Email message:

    Dear Mr. Weller:

    I am writing to you from the Executive Offices of Verizon Wireless in reference to the email you sent to our office regarding Verizon Wireless launch of the Blackberry Bold device. I would like to discuss this with you as soon as possible. Please contact me on or before 6/7/2010. I am available Monday - Friday, 7:00AM - 4:00PM EST. Thank you.

    Respectfully,

    ~Name removed~

    VZW Executive Office

    ~phone number removed~
    The gentleman from Verizon's Executive Offices called me this morning to let me know the good news about the Blackberry Bold Launching tomorrow. He was going to tell me that yesterday if we would have had the chance to talk on the phone. He told me the press release was out today - which is why I went and found it before anyone else had posted it. He also told me to call him tomorrow before it gets too late in the day and he'd make sure it was overnighted to me as well. All in all he was a nice guy and I'll definitely be ordering the phone tomorrow with the rest of you!
