So again, I went to Best Buy (I work there) and was talking to the ... BlackBerry Storm forum
Storm only exclusive to Verizon for 3 Months!?!?!
So again, I went to Best Buy (I work there) and was talking to the mobile supervisor and the General Manager (who are both BB fanatics) and was asking them about the 9500 and 9530. So to clear things up for people that arent sure when best buy is releasing the storm, THE VERIZON STORM (9530) COMES OUT THE 21ST.
Now that I got that out of the way for the exciting part.
As I was talking to them they mentioned to me that the Storm (9500) is coming sometime in January, because the exclusivity Verizon has with RIM is only 3 months long!
I dropped a brick or two as soon as i heard that. lol. but this could still be a rumor so dont kill me if the 9500 doesnt come out in January, but the time frame seems fair.
So I am going to wait out on buying the BOLD and hope the Storm comes soon
mos def a good info day but if it is bad we will hunt you down just kidding kris
Lol and while ure hunting me down ill be hunting down the mobile supervisor and the general manager lol

From what I have heard ... Verizon will have exclusive rights if they can meet sales quotas otherwise it will be released with other services.
Blackberry rocks my world....
T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D
heres to hoping they they lost those rights!!!!!!!
Sounds like little more than a rumor to me. If it came from any sort of credible source it would be announced by that company by now that they're getting it too (eventually). But oh how I'd like to see this come true.
It sounds about right,simply because. GSM Model has been approved by the FCC about a month ago, and ATT was Slated to have a Storm within the first quarter of next year.

[chant] Sprint Sprint I love my Curve but think I would have to spring for the Storm!
3040B2F1 on the Curve & loving it!
<Erievon does the happy dance> Bring the Storm to ATT by the end of march and I will be a happy camper!
I refuse to switch to Vzw just because of their phone crippling policies.
That's what i've also heard. If they can keep up their end of the deal there exclusivity stays if they cant then other providers can have access tot the STORM.

Yeah and the GM of best buy is a cool guy...I talk to him all the time he wouldn't just say rumors like that.

Also why would verizon go ahead and make it public that in 3 months their beutiful storm is going to be available for other carriers? They are trying to get people to leave their carriers and switch to them.
I trust this is true and I can't wait to have my storm!!
Oh, just what I wanted. AT&T is about all that works in my area. US cellular works great now but they just don't have the devices I want.
An AT&T storm would be awesome.
why would you think that att will release the storm when the strom was made to directly compete with the iphone, the iphone is the apple of their eye, apple will not allow this......
