Ok Guys - I was fed up in reading your threads and posts with all ... BlackBerry Bold forum
9700 ON THE WAY !!!
Ok Guys - I was fed up in reading your threads and posts with all the bragging going on !
Here in Portugal no one knows when the great machine is due to arrive. I tried Spain (just next door...) and the same story _ "isa acomingh, but dunno whena !) ... Vodafone doesn´t know when it will launch it ! I suspect they are waiting for Xmas - but I ain´t, period !
So I went to the UK (just up the road...) where it IS available.
Bang ! Went crazy! Bought the damn thing ! I am expecting it to come (down the road...) by wednesday via DHL !!
Until then I have to figure out who will buy my 9500 and "common" Bold... have to make some money, somehow.
But by wednesday, folks, I'll be joining your threads and posts; firstly opening the box, unfolding and unsticking everything (very carefully and savoring the moment) and then, officially launching the "bootiful" 9700 !
By wednesday night, I should become a big braggart like you fortunate Yankee stackers !
S`right, made my point...!
congrats on your 9700. Looks like its going to be after Thanksgiving for all of us on snail-slow-Apple, er I mean AT&T
Geez, and I´m complaining !
Anxiety, that's the problem now !
Congrats delfim, nothing like closing the deal and have the fruits of the labor delivered! ENJOY!

I think they will be awesome, still unsure if i want that or an S2
Well bassman, my thoughts and doubts too !

You can say I am biased...
Regarding OS, as far as i could tell, there are minor (and obvious) differences...but it boils down to the same thing.
But it was really close!
Just remember that it is returnable in the first 30 days (I think) and if you do not like the 9700 (no way), you can return it and ge the S2

My 9700 will be here tomorrow yay! I will post my thoughts once I play around with it some.
Two on the way, they upgraded mine and waived the shipping cost and the upgrade fee, so cost is $199.00 plus tax per phone. For my second one the even waived the upgrade time for it, it had been upgraded to the 8900 only back in May. Looking for forward to using it. Only thing I wonder about is I was told that my $20.00 Blackberry plan wont work on it, I have to go with the new $25.00. We don't have 3G here yet, so I am going to test the phone using Edge. By the way when you call, say customer retention (customer loyality), they have different ability to give you better help.
Hi Greg - I'm aware of the 30 day return plan. Thanks for reminding me anyway.
I will inform you on the first impressions of the 9700, but - doubt if I'll change to the S2 because of the
Chsguyi69 - geez 2 of them ? Wow, that's either fortunate or being greedy !
I'm sure, like me, you'll be satisfied! In your case doubly so...!
we have 4 lines on our family plan, but were only up for one upgrade. I figured it would not hurt to ask. I posted my 8900 for sale on craigslist, and already have offers. Come Christmas I might try for an upgrade on the other two lines for my two sons. They don't lose or break phones like they used to, so not as worried about getting a nice phone like this for them, right now one has a 8320, the other has the 8900.
...A fully integrated BB family, I see ! Good for you !
Congrate buddy on ur 9700 I heard its a piece of work the latest state of the art thing well done enjoy
Female MC - we'll compare notes. Congrats as well !
