Doing it now, Sept 12th-15th, or even Oct 2nd. Won't do much in stability of the device. Most likely those things are already packaged and ready to roll. at&t is not your daily newspaper that brings stuff hot of the press. Those devices are most likely in a warehouse somewhere!
Ok, now I'm pissed!!! at&t is dragging this out just a little to much. Greg's new Bold is operating just fine on the 3G network, what's to say at&t branded one's won't do the same. Sounds like somebody made a deal with the devil over at at&t, and the devil's name is Mr Jobs..hmm!!!
