    Here's my thoughts to share with you both. While I usually have a massive reserve of patience for most things, I too find it really hard to wait for a new BB that I'm waiting to buy. That said, you've probably read of the trials and tribulations I have been through because I was an early adopter of the Bold. Thus a fresh reminder to me, that waiting pays off very nicely. And long after the wait is over, one must live with the phone. Therefore I highly encourage everyone to wait as long as they possible can, even after the phone is first released. I have spent nearly two months now, and a tremendous amount of money on not one, or two, but SIX Bolds to get one that is built properly and will live up to the standard that RIM builds it's phones too. And believe me I'm not looking for perfection, or picking apart the phones I have no time for that.

    I only return phones that are truly defective, and ones that my carrier confirms as such. Therefore I've learned that over the last several months RIM has shifted it's priorities from delivering phones that are ready to go right out of the box. To phones they simply push out, knowing that they are less than complete. I find this alarming, and unacceptable. But it is what it is. Never before have I witnessed this rapid fire OS release madness, with updates being released at the rate of more than one per week. And still they have not declared just one as the final, stable OS. Therefore more than ever, it's buyer beware.

    Thus I'm taking a new wait and see position as hard as that is to do. I'm also suggesting that to anyone that I care about, and that is all of you Stackers. To those of you that got trouble free new BB's consider yourself lucky. I'm not suggesting that they are all bad, but I am suggesting that the standard has been lowered. That goes without question. It's perfectly normal for a new model to have some bugs and unresolved issues. But never before in the history of RIM have they released all these OS updates like it was a fire they are trying to put out. This is obvious to anyone who stops and thinks about it.

    So proceed with caution, be as patient as you can, because the later you buy AFTER the phone is released, the better chance you have of not having to return it, thereby having to start all over again.

    Cheers.
    I agree Archer, I was quick to get the 8320 and I had a whole slew of problems with UMA which it took 3 devices and OS upgrades to fix. So patience is definatly a virture!

    That's been my experience until the Bold Debacle.

    The Storm had its share of release woes.

    Is that enough to push it into the realm of "trend"?

    (think soft launch, no fanfare, just appears)

    We will have to be a little more patient for a little while longer.

    That is my understanding as well. It promises to be an exciting launch.
