I just called the store near me in Denver. The rep said she knew about the new curve, but no details. I mentioned that there were reports on line that some Corporate stores have them in stock. She said, "hmm, let me check."

After a few minutes on hold:
REP: "The computer says we have 8 of them on order, but no details. I don't know when we'd get them."
ME: "Okay, never hurts to ask."
REP: "It also says somethign about some red ones..."
ME: "Yeah, that's actually the one I want..."
REP: "Oh, those show as being 'in transit.' I'm guessing we'll have them in the store on Monday. Want me to give you a call?"

I think I'll wait for my $179 8310 on Tuesday.
179 is a great price!

Do you really think he is going to tell before he gets there to buy them all up?

For those of us that already have a contract we have to wait. i can get it $200 cheaper than what let's talk is asking without a plan. Plus just exchanging my 8300 for it.

Default Different Situations for Different Forum Members

I, too, have been watching these 8310 release rumor threads for a couple of weeks in anticipation of the release. I am six months away from my contract expiring, but my AT&T Corp Rep agreed to override my contract and sell me the 8310 at the same price as new customers. I have been told that as soon as they arrive, he will be calling me. Therefore, letstalk.com and amazon.com are not options, and I will continue to monitor these posts for more information. Thanks to everyone that has provided info.

I called Amazon yesterday. They said 4 week backorder on both colors. Hope your Letstalk deal comes through. Oh, the check's in the mail too.

Default Number portability

I just ordered a new 8310 Titanium through Letstalk & was wondering how that # portability works? Will my current Sprint cell phone stop working once the # is ported (meaning before I even receive the 8310)? I need to have a cell at all times so that would suck if I have to wait a few days until I get the 8310.

When i went through them years ago I got the phone with a different phone number until my number was ported over. So you you should be ok, at least that was my experience.

This will be my first BB but I've been a Cingular/AT&T customer for over 7 years. But I'm not paying for the BB, my BF is (early Xmas present) so I have to wait until he has the extra money to do that (he's still paying for the laptop he got me for my birthday in August). He knows I'm impatient though and said we'll get me a new phone "very soon".
