Bell and Virgin Mobile Canada launch BlackBerry Curve 9360, Torch 9860 also arrives on Bell


It's about time Bell! Now just have to wait for the stores to actually have them. The 9860 is going to be a great phone.

Me too!!! I can't find anything on the web about VM USA getting a new BlackBerry this year at all.What the hell? I'm ready to switch to T-Mobile with their "Monthly4G" plan because I just find out that it includes TETHERING to my laptop as well. sweet deal I think.

I don't think the new Curve will arrive at Virgin Mobile USA for sometime. But you know, I really don't mind. Even if VMUSA's 8530 isn't the latest Blackberry, it's still a very solid device. More importantly, no one can beat their prices and amazing services.

Plus, T-Mobile is about to get acquired by ATT, a horrid company I am glad I got away from.

Sad still that in Canada one pays $50 for entry level or $130 for top of the line on a 3 year contract rather than 2 yr. Canada is the only place in the world I have heard of with 3 year contracts. I have the curve 9300 I got for 1 euro when I moved to France. BB did great with that as the 9300 is very prevalent. My ONE year contract is up in sept and thought no news on the new line of BBs last years are priced very high 130 euro on a 2 year contract. My gf, an avid BB user just Jumped ship to android as she could get the top of the line sensation for only 50 euro. Not totally sure how all these prices are set but blackberry needs to get back on the cheaper side at least with entry level. BB might be lossing market share in north american but its pretty good in Europe and latin america.

A good friend of mine that works for Tmobile just gave me the off contract price of the 9900. $600.00 I can't believe they're expecting to sale this thing.
