    Yeah, I know what you mean, I'm in that very situation, my contract ends in 09, with an upgrade available in May. But I just had an intelligent conversation with an CS operator and they said that they would be willing to waive the upgrade date and give me an early one to keep my business. You just have to kill them with kindness and ask politely and most people will work something out to sell you anything

    For $299 after rebate, I'll be waiting till it comes down in price. Even with my Premier account (which has a refurb curve for $60), it's still expensive.

    And the wait continues!
    As always, just my opinion...

    Yeah, I've got a business discount for being in the military, and the price is still steep, but I guess its one of those things that us idiots that love having the new thing out right now end up dealing with.

    I wish I had the will power to wait but what can I say other than I'm a venal consumer!

    I mean how long did it take for the iPhone to drop in price, and can we who have been waiting for the Bold wait that long, or any longer for that matter

    Got my Bold. All the early reports are true....screen is BEAUTIFUL. The screen really does "beat" the iPhone screen. Videos look incredible. Music also sounds GREAT on the Bold (using Shure headphones) -- although I am going to promptly load Miutunes so I can have album coverflow on my Bold

    Browsing Speeds (using side by side w/ iPhone) are the *same* for me on 3G. Same for me when I use my wireless network. Both phones will intermitently drop to EDGE signal at home. Nothing bad.

    The Bold itself is beautiful. It is slightly wider, but shorter than the iPhone. Easily pocketable / portable. Leatherette backing is much classier than I remember at WES. OS is 4.6.0.167. My only concern hardware-wise is the plastic chrome edging. I'm sorry, but it feels cheep as sh1t, and I do worry about long-term use while carrying and using the mobile device "mobilly" (pocketing in jeans).

    Web Browser = yawn. The browser gets beat by iPhone's safari hands down. Opera mini will be loaded on my Bold shortly, but it still lags behind safari. This two key places iPhone really shines are it's web browser and the ease to find/load 3rd party web applications directly from the device....

    Now, the 2nd item *should* be matched once RIM officially releases the "Application Center"

    I have my worries about the App Center being "run" by the carriers (verizon, at&t, t-mobile, sprint, vodafone, rogers, etc). Just too much reliance on the carrier's red tape if you ask me. I worked for one of them, and it took a congressional effort to get the very slightest of things done...so hopefully things will have changed for the better once RIM releases the App Center. Folks will download applications if they are 1) GOOD/USEFUL, and 2) easy to load. Make it difficult, and it's over.

    Now, all that said the Bold is totally worth the upgrade. 4 other people ahead of me were getting Bolds in the store here in Atlanta. All "corporate" types, but I did see one "tween" playing with the one the reps had on display.

    The keyboard/ease-of-use typing, full GPS (with actual turn by turn & voice guided capability via TeleNav/ATT Navigator), keyboard shortcuts (huge for me....much faster to navigate for me personally than on the iPhone), and ...wait for it....application running in the background (another HUGE item, compared to the iPhone for productivity's sake) make this a winner.

    Unless I get plagued with memory leaks, JVM errors, and numerous "uncaught exceptions" (software issues, not hardware) -- this one is a keeper and the iPhone I have will be going bye bye.

    My initial $0.02.
