Default Hello, just purchased a bold... Woo Hoo.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I just purchased a bold over the phone since I wasnt eligible for upgrade I managed to get a upgrade price anyway through AT&T customer service which I have to say has been great since i joined AT&T 11 months ago but anyway.. to my point. The bold will be here in a few days and I was looking at the included accessories and it said stylus, the woman on the phone said its partly touch screen. I searched everywhere and could not find anywhere that says the bold is a touch screen so why is there a stylus included and why did she say it was part touch screen? any ideas?

She didn't know what she talking about.

There's no touch screen on the Bold.

It doesn't come with a stylus.
If it says so on the web page, then it's a mistake on the page.
No touch screen... no need for a stylus.

I didn't say that I didn't believe you. I said it was a mistake.

There's no stylus for the Bold. It doesn't have a touch screen... or even a partial touch screen. End of story.
If someone tries to sell you a stylus for it, then tell them they're an idiot and go shop somewhere else.
If they give you one for free, then throw it away or give it to someone who uses a Palm Pilot.

I would ask them for a touch screen Bold and if not sue them for false advertising and that you though it was a touch screen. Even though they don't make them just stir up a hornets nest

I think she meant you can touch the screen with the stylus. Which is standard in all phones too.

It comes with a stylus, so when you are in public you can pretend to use it and have people think the Bold is touchscreen.
