Please Login to Remove!

I want to to upgrade to a Bold as soon as possible [my first Blackberry]BUT, I use the Verizon network and they don't sell it yet.
Does anyone know if and when Verizon will carry the Bold?
I have contacted Verizon and looked all over the web and found no answers.

Not anytime soon, if at all.

Verizon will reportedly be getting the Tour 9630 in July or August, however.

The Tour is the CDMA version of the Bold.

The rumor date is July 13th... So maybe we will see it soon, but it will probably get delayed for a bit.

Patience is key

Never want to disagree with the mods, but my understanding is that the Tour is smaller than the Bold.

I know the Javelin is smaller then the Bold, I was under the same impression the Tour was suppose to be the same size as the Bold.

I might have to look threw CB.com now, didn't they compare the Tour with the existing BB's or was that something else (Onyx maybe).... All these pre-released models it gets comfusing.

I stand corrected..

Cool.. Too bad we can't get a shot of it next to the Curve 8330.. Comparing the CDMA berries.

I don't want a device as bulky as the 8830/9000.. I've grown to like the compactness of my 8330.

Yeah, I wish that they would have put the 83xx series in that picture for comparison.
