So when the US release Date? What's the cost? Can Verizon answer that?
Got something similar in an email yesterday since im on the list...
still no word on price but if you google verizon storm price .... no contract price seems to be hovering around $450-500 and 2 year NEW contract is 250-350 at least in the rumor mills.
It will be typical verizon... I use the voyager as last years example.
Released around thanksgiving with a 2 year price at 249 was half that price 6 months later on a 2 year deal.
Check out the retailers for the most aggressive prices... NOTE: Circuit City even though they are closing alot of stores dont expect aggressive prices there since the verizon kiosks there are actually true verizon stores in house.
Retailers to check:
Perhaps Walmart, radio shack etc....
Happy Storm Spotting!
This is what the Iphone pressure is... The Storm looks so amazing. Apple Iphone was a think out of the box device (with a lot room for improvements) that forced very cellphone maker to change their devices. For me the only thing that the storm needs is WiFi.
i have never used wifi on my pearl. what are some of the reasons one would want to use wifi,other than not having a data plan?

I thought I was decided on the Bold, but the more I think about this, if this somehow makes it to ATT before the end of March (my next upgrade), I'm going to be seriously torn.
Well guys, I go for formal Storm training on tuesday, if it's not been announced by then I will give all the heads up on the release date when I get back from class.
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
I'm ready for the release..
We're All ready for the release!
Just release the phone already!!!!!
