Default Question about the bold

Please Login to Remove!

Do you guys think the bold will come to verizon? I say this because if verizon does end up getting the thunder as an exclusive I would think they may not get the bold. Id rather have a bold than a thunder though.

Longer then that. It will be a few months before it comes out for ATT. Don't expect it any earlier then spring 09 for Verizon.

The Thunder is yours, it is official. Sounds like an interesting device.

I know this sounds like blasphemy but you could migrate over to AT&T to get the bold.

Honestly, I would easily switch to AT&T. But, im only 17 and still live with parents. Im afraid to ask them because they will just complain about how I wanna switch over because of a piece of technology.

Just curious, what feature of the 9000 are you looking for that the 8130 doesn't have. The big reason for a lot of people is the 3G radio, but you already have EVDO with Verizon. You could always get the Curve to hold you over, its a pretty good unit.

Ok well I want the bold pretty bad because of the display it has, it overall looks, and many more. I just dont want to have the curve now that ive seen he bold. its hard to explain. Is the curve pretty good im still considering it?

I really find the 1GB of internal encrypted storage to be a real bonus. Now you can receive those nice MS Office attachments, use apps like Vigo to store your RSS feeds without hogging up the little RAM you had. Put a bunch of movies and music etc. on you 16GB storage card(s) and off you go on your trip around the world.
