    Buy your phone some place else then
    That's BS what they are doing
    Or wait 2 months so you can get it without a contract

    You know that AT&T is trying to do nothing more than suck every penny they can put of their customers and try to corner a portion of the market by attempting to force customers over to their company. If I go the route of the bold, I'll pick it up unlocked somewhere. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I just confirmed with my reliable source at AT&T, who's much higher up than a Store Mgr, or District Mgr, that they will be selling the Bold without contract or any commitment.

    Just walk in and buy one.

    And no don't ask me for the price...(it's very reasonable)

    Oh, and sorry to disappoint you AT&T haters

    NOT True

    Unlock codes _will_ be issued by AT&T

    (just call in after you have activated your phone, tell them you are traveling internationally and they will issue the code at no charge, as long as you are an AT&T subscriber in good standing)

    It is simply not true.

    My local AT&T store has already emailed me and said they have got them in stock today and I can pick two Bolds up at 9am when the store opens.

    Challenge the person who told you so because if it IS a Corp store, they can NOT refuse to sell you a device if you are willing pay full price.

    Archer6 in case I didn't make it clear, I will not be activating my phone with ATT. I just want the bold, get it unlocked, and use it on TMO's EDGE.

    I figured since I have my wifes phone on att that they'd be more lenient. But since they know I'm not activating the bold with them, they won't release the unlock code to me, they want me to add the bold to the account and I won't.

    Thumbs down

    I don't know why they gave me wrong info. It really didn't make sense to me that they wouldn't want to sell a BB without a contract. They would be making more money.

    I think they'd rather have someone commit to service than sell a bold at full cost...

    Well sure, from a business perspective, they want you to marry them for at least a year

    No problem, just walk in & buy one. They are selling them without any obligation. In stock quantities are high & demand is not expected to be high.

    sent via BlackBerry 8310 (I prefer it to my Bold)
