I am guessing the OP means not launching it now with the other countries.

I saw you have T-Mobile in your profile. Just want to make sure you know even when T-Mobile launches 3G you will only have EDGE with this Bold.

Is that a direct suggestion not to buy a phone for retail price?

How on earth could your ever possibly read between the lines and come up with that. My comments was simply that fommy is a reseller, (i.e., not a carrier or retailer), and I quoted the price.

What's the deal?

Seems a bit pricey. Expansys has it listed at $699 with availability stated as ordered on request. Also CTI Miami is listing it at $632 with an ETA in stock date of Aug. 30th.

I guess you pay the premium for getting it early.

Is it a branded Bold (I know it is unlocked)? Does it have a QWERTY keyboard?

Thanks, I just ordered one myself,

It is unbranded and QWERTY from the look of their site.

Expansys UK selling Bold SIM free for UKP 620, available in 3 days.

Now I know us Brits should by now be used to being ripped off, but that's USD 1,130 - more than enough to prompt the question "what on earth is wrong with my Curve?"

GSM PhoneSource - When Only The Best Will Do also shows them as available and shipping 8/25 (two days ago) for 949.99 unlocked.

I won't comment on the price, but Adam at GSMPS has always been a class act and provides the best service for unlocking around. I would never hesitate doing business with them.

Just a FYI.
