Nothing specific from ATT, but rumors are the third week of August.

Is it true ATT has exclusive rights on bold for 1 year and TMO will have to wait a year before offering it to customers?

That's not going to stop the unlockers from using it on TMO. Too bad we have to settle on edge while 3G rolls out in about a year also. There's so much confusion regarding 3G, it won't surprise me if the speeds are slightly better than edge and nowhere near the 2 MB marketed speeds.

I have heard anywhere from August to November. So we really don't know. Hopefully soon!

You're gonna be very disappointed with an unlocked AT&T Bold on TMo. A lot of TMo's 3G network will be running at 1700MHz. An AT&T Bold won't operate on that band.
