It's hard to get mentally ready with all these "credible dates" being thrown around. Why can't Rogers just announce 5 days before like any other gadget release.

Ray,

It appears that your credibility is suspect. Numerous times you have come on here and posted false information (perhaps not intentionally) regarding the release dates. All this does is serve to disappoint and frustrate many of RIM's/Roger's loyal customer base through no fault of their own. It actually damages their reputation because it makes them appear unreliable when if fact it is you that is spreading false rumors.

I propose that Ray be banned until the device is release and then immediately reinstated.

Anyone else agree?

Banning someone for their personal opinion sounds kinda silly. Isn't the whole point of a forum so people can give their 2 cents? It's your choice if you want to believe it or not.

I think you should be banned for posting non sense. He posts the information he knows just like anyone with insider sources or someone who just talked to a Rogers or RIM rep. Its not his fault if dates get pushed back or information changes. Damn it people s*** happens Ray and Cory aren't Ted Rogers' best friend they aren't always going to have exact dates because things change that they can't control. You becoming so dependent on them is your own fault, take their info with a grain of salt. You people just come on here and bash Ray and cory like it was them personally who pushed back the dates on the Bold when it obviously isn't. Give them a break. Ban yourself if you don't want to read it. Don't you think it frustrates Cory and ray as well they want the device to be released as well. You believe what you want. I'm sure no one else will agree.

I really hope you are kidding. Banning someone for giving out information they thought may be helpful to others is ridiculous. Like Stranger stated, dates get pushed back. Ray as well as Cory were trying to add to the community by stating info they found valuable at the time. Things change, thus is life. It is not like they come here, picked a random date and posted it just to get your hopes up. Give it a rest. It is all rumors and hearsay at this point anyhow.

I think Cory should also be banned until the device is released. He also pollutes the forum with baseless gossip.

Well, maybe you should plead your case with the mods. I really think banning individuals based on your bogus reasons is uncalled for. That's just my opinion.

Getting personal and hurling insults WILL get you banned. Predictions or assumptions that turn out to be inaccurate WILL NOT, nor should they.

You must be the only person in the forum that has someone behind them with a gun to their head telling them to read every post by ray and cory and live and die by what they say.

I was told a couple of days ago by my account manager at O2 (UK) that they'll have the Bold on the 8th September 2008, no idea yet what the price will be though...

Default I will remain quiet

I will remain a bystander until Tuesday August 19th, if the BOLD arrives then we can all be happy, if it does not arrive then you can all say "I told you so"

7 days to prove that I am wrong.
