Hopefully that is a "pre-launch" price. We'll see what the AT&T Corporate Store charges me in Calif. after Tuesday. If it turns out to be $449, I would think a refund would be in order.

Gotta love it... just called a local store here in Orange County on the off chance they might have the red ones. The guy was talking to me like I had no idea what I was talking about cause, as far as he was concerned, the only red blackberry they make or sell is the Pearl, not the Curve

Same story here. Bottom line is that (I think) no one at the AT&T retail store level knows what's coming and when. Obviously, some parts of the country already have them.

Just not here

It's pretty pathetic that the company doesn't do a solid launch date and have them ready across the states at the same time...

Huh. Is that just a coincidence that you're one of the ones selling one on eBay? Let us know if you make a quick killing there.

Can't blame a guy for making some extra money. If I thought it'd be another 2 or 3 weeks before I could get one, I'd probably buy off ebay.

Given the misinformation floating around, it's hard to tell at this point if we're talking 2-3 days, 2-3 weeks, or 2-3 months.

I'll call Amazon tomorrow morning to sort out what their real scoop is, and wait a few days to see what happens at my local store.

Yeah, I agree. I'm going with Tuesday as being the day. I think the same thing happened when the 8300 came out. Some stores got them before it really launched. I think we'll all be happy campers come Tuesday.

Hey everyone,
I am new here to the forum, and I, too, am waiting patiently for the release of the 8310. If anyone in the Chicagoland happens to find a store that is selling the Titanium one, please let me know. I will do the same.

Thanks

It's not on the premier site to order and the csr knew nothing about it also.

Not all csr's or sales reps keep up with the phones

Often times we find out about new phones the day they arrive in store!

I follow several site to keep myself apprised of new releases an yet sometimes I am caught off guard

I just ordered mine through Amazon. The pricing was way cool ($99.99 'cuz I get an upgrade price as an existing customer). I called after hitting the "Place your Order" button and they tell me that I'm 3rd in line for shipping. Apparently, they're temporarily out but expecting more in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, I have the option of cancelling all the way up until the time they ship in case they show up at my local store, although my price would then go up by $100, so we'll see how it goes.

How much do they charge if you DON'T get a contract? Their list price says $399, which is $50 less than offered in stores.
