If I tell you where I got the device, I would have to kill you No, I didn't get it from ebay. I would never pay the ridiculous prices at ebay. I friendly asked for a device and got it

Will the Bold fit into an OEM 8800 holster (the one with the elastic sides and top-magnet fastener). Would the sleeper magnets line up, do you think?

How strong is the Vibrate to feel (on belt, in pocket), compared to Curve/8800/Pearl?

Thanks!

This is working fine on the release I currently have installed. I haven't tested any other AJAX-based features yet.

I can test this tomorrow, it shouldn't be a problem.

I am carrying my Bold only in my pocket and the vibration is fine for me. Directly compared to the 8320, the vibration on the 8320 is stronger.

Do you enjoy the vibration, or do we speak of such here in public?

To avoid any misconception: My device is a seed unit. I was confirmed by RIM that the build quality and hardware is identical to the production model.

If your SIM card is not too old, that shouldn't be a problem.

Media player is nice looking, However whenever a song changes on mine i hear a beep but its not a normal beep. Movies are amazing on this thing. I havent uploaded any pictures from my Bold to my PC but on the bolds screen they look alright nothing compared to the iphone.

In Boy Genius's review, he mentioned the screens scratches pretty easily. Is this the case?

And thanks for all the great info.

My curve is scratched a lot and only had it for a month or so. My bold so far is good, no scratches like the curve however one thing i do not like right above the send/end keys theres a small raised ledge and dust gets caught in it which is right below the screen however the dust doesnt go into the lcd which is good b/c the curve i have has dust in under the screen ontop of the lcd screen?

I saw this on the German T-mobile Site... I think us lad's across the pond, since we are T-mobile customers, should be able to get the German version of the bold and have it sent to us in the states... does it help that I am from Ireland originally...LOL! I can't wait to get my hands on one of these.

Since I've got my curve my production has gone way down, do you think the Bold will help with this or make it worse.

Wait for the Bold Otterbox and then get a Bold together with the Otterbox.

Thanks for sharing your impressions and experiences with the new BB Bold.

Have you had a chance to try "streaming audio" -- from an Internet site --to see (for example) if you can listen to a radio station in real time? (either on 3G or 802.11)
