    The other thing is, it's not just the towers that need additional radios installed on them, it's also the bandwidth feeding the towers....and in some areas, that "last mile" might not even be AT&T's network - they might be looking at 60-90 day delivery times from the local carrier.

    Excellent points!
    As you mentioned there are indeed, many challenges to be dealt with when rolling out a new device that operates on a distinctly different transmission speed.

    I still think ATT should have taken the chance of building it while rogers was doing it. Rogers had its 3G network even before any interesting 3G phone was released here and since then we're getting 3G phone all the time (n95, K850, iPhone, Bold, Touch Diamond coming soon etc...)

    We'll soon see if the Oct 2nd will hold up. Sometimes people like to play games, so that document could be fake.

    The longer the wait, the better the BlackBerry will be. It's just a fact of life. If we look at this intellectually as opposed to emotionally it makes sense.

    I really don't care anymore about release dates from this source or that source whenever my friend that works for ATT tell me they have it in the store or I see it in the store I will buy it but until then I will be waiting with my Curve that I am happy with so far! ~via BB8310 (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Maybe its a blessing in disguise that ATT has to pour money into they're network to Better it due to iphones crappy design flaw. Could be better for us ATT customers in the long run.

    In actuality AT&T had already planned for the expansion of their network based on what turned out to be their accurate projections of an increase in the number if all brands of 3G sales. Thus the impact of the iPhone debacle only accelerated the need for increased capacity. Had Apple been forthcoming about the crude way the crafted the bandwidth of their phone, there is a good probability that AT&T would also have passed. This would have left Ape to foist off their device on another network. Cloak & Dagger style does suit Apple well.
