agreed. but what does that have to do with my comment. great guy or AT&T employee has nothing to do with what i was saying. the statement : official 8310 launch Oct. 11th is incorrect. unless its a secret nobody can buy or see it or know about type launch .

p.s. please take what i'm saying with some level of humor . after all , this is just about a blackberry ... not really a life and death situation .

Forgive me - what does "COR" stand for? And what exactly is an "Agent"?

And thanks for the update!

Not that I work for at&t but I'm guessing COR is corporate stores and authorized resellers can start ordering them?

Default NEW Rumors?

OK. This is really getting old. I stopped by my local AT&T store and called a couple of others. The worst rumor came from my local store where they said they saw an email this morning that AT&T has postponed/cancelled the 8310 launch.

Can anyone confirm or refute this?

If this is true, I think I'll just pick up an 8300 and wait to see what happens in the next 30 days in my exchange period.

At the AT&T store I went to last night, the guys I talked to knew what I was talking about but said "We'll get them when we get them" which is fair enough. I'm just impatient! Well, my BF is paying for mine when I can upgrade in a couple weeks so I won't complain too much.

Oh and I did find this on AT&T's site today:

https://www.wireless.att.com/support...deviceId=10000

I was in the ATT store in Chicago this afternoon. They heard end of month but really weren't sure and didn't seem to know what they were talking about. My Treo 650 finally died a beyond resettable death this morning (my screen is blank with red, green, blue and white horizontal bars and the phrase "Bootload v 0.19") and I desperately need a replacement PDA.

While I have sadly ruled out the iPhone and decided on the Curve, I really don't want to get one of the last 8300s and TMobile is not an option. So I'm anxiously following this thread very closely.

I talked to my local rep(s) and they still don't know a thing about it. I'm suprised, I end up telling them about it and giving them info... anyone find one at a store near them yet?

Yeah. I posted that link on the other thread earlier today. I've also heard the "we'll get them when we get them" which actually makes the most sense to me.

I know I NEED a Blackberry now and I'm getting more impatient by the minute.

I think one of the lessons learned is that the most people at the AT&T retail store level really don't have a whole lot of insight as to what's really going on in the grand scheme of things.

OK, but let's admit it. Don't new rumors raise the hysteria level and make it all that much more interesting?

The other thing to consider is what they told me in the ATT store last night. They said that some stores may not see them early because they may still have a certain amount of stock left of the current 8300 and would not receive them until they are gone. I also remember hearing a similar scenario when the 8820 was released. I still bought the 8300 last week knowing we were in range of launch.

So when I'm getting the "postponed/cancelled" message today, I'm thinking, ah, the heck with it, I'll just end the roller coaster ride and get the 8300 now although I really want the 8310, and exchange it within the 30 days when it comes out.

Which brings up a question. Obviously(?), if a phone's returned within 30 days, AT&T can't sell it again as new. So, is this what shows up as refurbished?

Also, knowing(?) that the 8310 is coming on Tuesday(?), is it ethical to indulge in the instant gratification of having a Curve in your hands, knowing that you're going to return it within the 30 days?

Just curious to what others think.
