Default Will Rogers actually get the Bold before AT&T?

Please Login to Remove!

What do you guys think? I am hearing June 25th for Rogers and July 17 for AT&T. Can that be right? And if it is, are there any trustworthy Canadians out there willing to buy me one at the non-contract rate?

It's June 23rd. I'd think if they were releasing it on the 25th, we'd have had an announcement by now.

True, but I'm hoping a fellow board member will just pick me up one at the same time they get theirs so I can pay retail. Ebay will be 200% of retail.

I was told today by my RAE that the Bold was pushed back to Sept/Oct timeframe for at&t. I hope it's not true but he has never been to far off on launch dates.

Ive read enough BS news from supposed contacts or liazons to not believe anyone who says they got the news from a contact of liazon. LOL. Most of them are wrong, and most swear by their contacts. Except for a certain one person here, or gizmodo, everything else is no different than my 5 year old telling me he hears aliens are coming next week to take all the children to a planet called marklar to play with the other marklar babies.

My kid says the aliens will come next week. His news comes from not only an AT&T rep, but also Verizon and Tmobile reps. Yup, this news HAS to be true! OH ... and also from his trusted personal source ... they come bearing large oprah sized doghnuts that inflate over time.

If it is released on Rogers on the 25th (for example) does that mean that unlockers and importers will have them available soon after that?

Just for general info, TIM Italy has had the Bold in its online store since end of May / beginning of June, albeit as "not available". The local flagship store hasn't got a clue as to when it might be available, and the reps there told me that it's not possible for them to order it yet.

I have set up an email alert of when it will be in stock at TIM Italy and will update the community

Honestly, I'm done speculating "when it might come out" and "who will get it first" I'm just gonna sit and wait until you can actually walk into a store and buy it. there is a different rumor almost every day now.
