Default Any Hope for a ?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok I've seen the threads in the storm forum already so I know the current units can run on AT&T's network after being unlocked but I'm waiting on an official one that AT&T will have so I don't have to buy one that'll need to be unlocked. Has anyone heard anything? I would like to think since I see alot of BB models on all the major carriers it would make an appearance eventually. Any thoughts on it? Or is it a pipe dream? I am used to touch screens already but I'm wanting a Blackberry that'll have it on my carrier so I don't have to miss the 3G speeds. I'm tired of 2G already.

Both the 9000 and 9700 operate at 3G speed on ATT.

But is your question actually when, if ever, will ATT get a touch screen BB similar to the Storm? Maybe the Storm 3? Find out at WES 2010 in April, maybe.

I haven't heard of a touch screen coming to the GSM world in the US, but there are always rumors of one.

Yeah I really like the storm 2 I've been thinking about getting it but I'm on AT&T and don't want to switch carriers. As I have a 2G Iphone it's ok but I like the Blackberry line just a bit better. Thanks for your reply.

There was a post indicating that Verizon is dropping the Storm 2. I'd love to get a Storm 2 on AT&T. I didn't understand the first response regarding touch screen and GSM - is there an issue there? Or are you simply stating that a Storm 2 is not available on AT&T (I ask because the iPhone is and it's touch screen on GSM - isn't it?).

If anyone has any info on the Storm 2 (or 3) coming to AT&T, please pass it on.

Thanks.

I think Verizon is dropping the Storm. The new Tour is on the way between now and whenever (May perhaps?).

Get a unlocked 9520 Storm 2.
Its 3G, and will work on at&t's 3G bands.
