go get one, this should be nationwide, haven't gone in and checked but the e-mail looked to go all over... remember this is in CORP RETAIL stores only. Note: upgrades may not be possible, will know a bit later... Upgrade system may not let sales till the 24th. Sorry all.

Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is moving from the Pearl to the Curve? Just looking at this thread, there is only one person who lists a Blackberry that isn't the Pearl. Coincidence...?

What are you guys doing with your old Pearls? I tried listing mine on craigslist, but so far I don't have any takers, and I can't seem to find anyone interested in my area. I unlocked it too, but that doesn't seem to be doing much for interest.

If you pick up a Curve @ a T-Mo store are you able to bill it to your account?

I just spoke to the manager of a corporate store and he said that he (as well as the manager of the other store close to me) are just waiting for UPS to arrive, and as soon as it does they will be selling the Curve. He said that there is a chance that it might not come in todays shipment, but he seemed pretty sure about it. He told me to call back in an hour.... so im excited! This is going to make my weekend!

. . .this statement should say, "if/when/where available" . . . no sense in touching frayed nerves waiting for this device . .

I agree -- I think this is a false alarm or very limited availibility -- just called two local corporate retail stores in MA, and they both said Monday.

Several corporate stores I called in DC and MD do not have the phone. One store in DC has both gold and titanium. However, he wouldn't give it to me on an upgrade, new activation only. I asked the price and he said he had to call me back. WTF?

I spoke to several stores in my area (NoVA/DC). All 3 stores have them. 1 store won't sell until Tuesday. 1 store won't sell them today because they don't have pricing on the SKU. The other store said Monday.

Lots and lots of misinformation. This is looking more like an AT&T handset launch than a T-Mobile one!
