This phone does not even fall into the same class as the iPhone and I really wish people would stop trying to pricematch it with the iPhone.

Walmart (USA) now offers the phone for FREE (with a high-minute plan).

Amazon is discounting to $149 (after rebate & mid-sized plan).

Newegg is selling for $199 (after plan & rebate).

A few other 3rd party online sites are doing similar.

AT&T HOWEVER, WON'T PRICE-MATCH (REMAINS AT $299 AFTER REBATE).

The once-a-year holiday season is approaching (people are shopping for deals).

Also, Verizon is releasing their BB STORM in 5 days (competition for At&T).

Anyone have any feedback on if AT&T will drop their Bold price in the near future.

Seems like THIS WEEK would be a prime time to match all those other sources!

It would be foolish for them to miss the boat. Comments?
