iPhone 3G & BOLD
I sent someone in canada to buy the bold for me from rogers thinking it was 599 plus tax. Then I found out they raised it to 649, and now that its on its way to me I found out I bought it for 699 plus tax because the rogers reselelr says that if im not getting a contract with them they have to make some money somehow. The price is still ok, I just dont like that rogers advertised as 599- then 649 and i ended up paying 699 plus tax = like $780
8900 Curve, IPHONE 3G, SAMSUNG JET, NOKIA E71, BOLD, STORM 9500
went to a rogers "dealer" in winnipeg, told me it would be 699 (no hup) regardless of the site saying 599. Went to Future Shop, its advertised as 649, told them rogers site says 599, and they matched the price.
$399. with new 3-year contract.
Just got one yesterday for the better half from Carphonewarehouse in the UK. She got the Bold for free on an 18 month contract at Ł32.50 a month on Orange. Phone is SIM and branding free. The only complaint is there are only two themes.
It came with firmware 4.6.0 92.
They are also doing it SIM free for Ł349
I want on now!
200$ With a new activation voice n data.
The upgrade was really quick, under 15 minutes compared with around 45 minutes for my 8120.
First impression is that it speeds things up quite a bit. The 3G signal seems stronger as well.
One minor thing I have noticed is that when wi-fi is turned on the 3G signal drops a bar. Did this before the upgrade as well.
But other than that, I'm impressed. Just under 6 months 'til I can upgrade. The only thing stopping me from buying a SIM free one is the the hope that there is a sunset one by the time I am due an upgrade ;-)
