Default Bold on Verizon?

Please Login to Remove!

Will the Bold ever be available from Verizon or is it AT&T only?

I have an 8830 and I am sick of "fat fingering" keys. I'd love to have a really good data phone.

Thanks

It looks like Sprint will be getting a Bold version 9030...possibly. As far as Verizon, I doubt it, since they just got the Storm.

Thanks, I just saw the Storm when I was in Colorado but I have heard lots of whining about the keyboard touch. I am dragging my feet to see if that is fixable (Sorry, wrong forum).

I would look into getting the Curve from Verizon. The keys are spread out a little more and maybe more comfortable to hold too since I believe it may be a tad wider?

Does the Niagara/Bold have wide spaced keys like the Curve???? I still have an 8830 and it's tough to type on.
