    Decided not to wait on Bold. Storm looks tempting

    Advertisement



    I never post here but read a lot. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for the bold to replace my curve. I am on Tmobile. It seems ATT has lost my business because of the delay, because the Storm now has my undivided attention. I don't know if I will like Verizon but ATT has proved to me that their high prices don't make up for the aggravation they cause with delaying their release.

    This is a Bold thread I know but I am wondering how many people are in my same boat.

    Tmobile customer also thinking about returning to VZN for the Storm. I swore them off but am willing to face the facts: if you want a fast network wherever you go they have it and ATT doesn't. Wifi is not needed with VZN. And touchscreens are pretty cool with that big screen. I've been paying attention to the Bold posts and ATT isn't ready for 3G primetime I'm afraid.

    i'm afraid you are right...pure speculation (based on forum rumors) but i am leaning towards this reason why the bold hasn't been released...

    Well as archer mentionned a couple times other 3G devices work flawlessly on att's network (iphone 3G aside obviously lol)
    But yeah if I was in the US I'd either be with Tmo or VZ.

    Saw the Horns play CU in Boulder weekend before last. They look good. Went to see the son of a pal who started at TE but he got hurt in game #3 and had knee surgery.

    I would never consider Verizon. Simply because they are NOT GSM.

    So today I went in and got a Bold. Coming from Tmobile and edge I must say I like the speed of the new 3G network. I opted not to get the storm finally because I travel to the caribbean sometimes and need my gsm phone by my side (i always buy a prepaid sim when I get there). So far it is bigger than my little curve and the screen is super nice. I am not a fan of the plain looking icons that all resemble one another but all in all the call quality is excellent and I am happy with the upgrade. Time to go work and help pay for it.

    By the way typing is cool but not as fast as with my curve yet because of the spaces between the keys on the curve that my hand got used to. I feel this will go away in a few weeks as my hand gets familiar with the bold. Wifi is neat but will I ever use it since I have 3G now? Don't know.

    Don't do it > go to Verizon from ATT... the Storm in enticing, I agree, but that network is ridiculous from a customer service perspective...

    The phone has now released - delays happen. Consider how upset you all would be if it released and didn't work right... ATT did you a favor in holding off, no matter how frustrating it has been
