I would pay a $1000 for one in the USA, but not to fond of sending my funds to overseas.

Anyone got a working Bold, email me!

What do you guys predict the going rate for these things will be on Ebay once Rogers releases them? (Assuming they follow the 8800 pricepoint of $599CAN with no contract)

$1000, $1500? I have family in Canada, so I'm getting one for sure.....just wondering if I should buy a few more to unlock and turn for a profit....

The going price should be well above that I am sure. If it follows the European pricing we have seen, no contract with be around $800.

Sith, will they be able to be unlocked the moment they are released or will someone have to figure out how? I assume its based on the OS, so it should be easy, correct?

Its not locked by the OS. The PIN will be disabled (what happened with Kevin from CB) and you will no longer be able to activate BES/BIS on the device.

Sorry, I was actually referring to the units available from Rogers when they are released when I asked about unlocking them....
