If you've been been waiting for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 to hit a US carrier then tonight is the night. T-Mobile has now posted up the BlackBerry Bold 9780 in black and white. $129.99 with a new 2 year contract and it's all yours. if retail price is more your style and you like not having a contract then you'll be looking at $449.99 as your final damage. Some areas are still showing the device as back ordered but, other areas show it as available. Our guess is that it's still filtering through the site so if your zip isn't showing it as available yet, it will be shortly.

I currently feel lust, envy, and rage towards those who'll get this AWESOME phone today.

Today the 9700 cedes the throne of "pinnacle of Blackberry experience" to the 9780.

I will have to wait for my contract to be up or scoop one up off craigslist.

Lol, they've taken the 9700 off the site....since the leak of the OS6 for the 9700 i wonder how many 9700 owners are going to shell out money for this refresh.....i'm still good with my 9700

Do we already know anything about a possible release in Switzerland? Or in another country with a QWERTZ keyboard?

Would love to upgrade to the 9780 from my beloved 9700.

Is there a "Z" in place of a "Y" on phone keyboards in Switzerland?? How do you misspell QWERTY lol. It's just the first 6 letters on the keyboard!

At any rate, I went to my TMO store near my house and NO TMO stores, according to the sales associate, in MN have the 9780 yet.

can you please let me know how you were able to swap it out. ive been having major issues with my 9700 and they offered me to replace it but if i can swap for the 9780 ill do that
send me some info please

if ur having issues with 9700 they will swap for 9780,
Look their is a known issue with tmobile,when calling someone phone starts out in 3g then drops too gprs,tmobile knows it and the 9780 they fixed it. so use this but i called several times about issues they sent 4 refubs and 1 new out of box same thing 3g drops too gprs while on a call thats bad, 6th phone 9780,hope this helps

I was lucky enough to score my 9780 at a tmo retail store yesterday and i gotta say the device ROCKS!!! its snappy and very responsive.. i noticed right out of the box it only took a minute and a half to fully boot up... i have used blackberry 6 on the 9650 and 9700 (both leaked versions) and the experiance was nice but the 9780 really takes it 1 step further.. awesome job RIM and TMO!!

Congratulations on scoring the beast.

Is $499.99 the overall cost or do you have to pay extra taxes and other stuff?

Is it available in the stores yet?

When I login to purchase, the $50 instant rebate shown in this post is actually a $50 mail-in rebate. Anybody else see this?

Oh, and my local store only has white - any stores have black yet?

Round and round the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel,
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop! Goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

A half a pound of tupenny rice,
A half a pound of treacle.
Mix it up and make it nice,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

Up and down the London road,
In and out of the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

I've no time to plead and pine,
I've no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I'm gone
Pop! Goes the Blackberry 9780

Cross you'll only get the Edge network, tmobile and att use different band networks so you wont att 3G, I bought and unlock torch, and I couldn't get Tmo 3g on it and I have go through hoops and bounds to configure the torch to work on TMO UMA. So if you want to benefit and fully use the 3g network just wait til att get 9780

My best friend is a manager of a t-mobile store, I had gotten my 9780 since Saturday they had them in stock in the back room but can't sell them till today. So much better than 9700 and I love my 9700, when I updated my 9700 to OS6 it ran very sluggish. the 9780 fast ans smooth. the best blackberry to date, Att can have their torch. It's all about the bold 9780 baby

Alright sir let me start of by saying att started off wIth the bold series then we got tired of it and didn't want it no more so now its an upgrade to the torch...so now watch the rest follow suit...pretty much what I'm trying to say is att set trends and not follow like tmo who just got the bold series last year nuff said

Been waiting for this. After considering and pondering, I'm trading in my 9700. I don't care about what provider has this or that device first or anything. I'm not switching companies just because someone has the "new" so-so. That's stupid!

Just picked my black 9780 up from the Miami store on 36th St and Miami Avenue. Met a fellow CBer there. Rep said they got in about 20 and they are almost gone - that was at 11 AM. Looking forward to this device. $50 mail-in rebate. Had to ask for the form and he eventually found it, so everyone be sure to ask for the rebate form if they charge $179.

Been waiting for this phone for a few months now and want to go out and buy it today as i cannot wait anymore for my service carrier ATT to get the phone or its refusal to give info of when they will get it.. someone mentioned that when unlocking and switching to ATT service that i will not get 3G internet. is this the case or is there a way to get 3G? SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! i am on the Curve 8900 which uses edge and i cannot stand it anymore. It would also defeat the idea of using new internet browsing software of OS6 on 9780 which is supposed to be great! PLEASE HELP!

Thanks mswava. it sucks that there are no options with TMO phone for 3g service with ATT. I remember hearing that Telus & Rogers in Canada use the same frequency/band with for 3g service as At&t US. can anyone confirm that? and if yes, can anyone confirm that i will get 3g service with ATT on the 9780 if i buy from Canada?
Thanks

I went to my local T-Mobile corporate store around noon today. After getting no attention from the staff while playing with the Galaxy Tab for a bit I went up to them and asked if they got the new BlackBerry 9780. The response?

"Nope, that doesn't come out until the 17th"

Really? I didn't bother telling them that it WAS the 17th, or that their customer service sucked.

What a lame store. I guess I'll try the mall or just order online.

dont know why people are so excited from moving from a 9700 its pretty much the same thing and now you are out $129-500 depending on how much you are willing to pay for a simple OS upgrade

Ordered mine this morning... Backordered though!

I was not eligible for a full upgrade, only a partial which made it come to $244. I spoke to a Tmobile rep about the fact that a tower has been out 3 miles from my house since April and after talking about it, they gave it to me for $180. As soon as they phone comes in I am selling my 9700 for $70 to a friend. After mailing the rebate in, the new phone would have cost a grend total of $60!

Cant wait...

Wont be buying this garbage! Still no 1G onboard memory, no HD video recording, this phone is not even on T-Morons 4G! T-Mofo has really shafted Blackberry customers by offering silly blackberries while they up the ante on Windows 7 phones and MyTouch phones, its ridiculous! I will not be tied into a two year contract with these momos over a phone thats still lacking some super powers! Especially knowing another new one will be out by march of next year. My contract is up in January and I will be keeping my eyes open for the bigger better deal wether that means swapping to a new carrier or throwing Blackberry away all together! These guys need to get their technology together! The micro usb is still stationed at the upper portion of phone? How do you people charge with the wire running down the side of phone like that? I still have my trusty 8900 upgraded to OS6 and my track ball is fine, web speed is fine and I have all the new goodies. Nothing that makes me want to upgrade or jump ship for the last year! Its ridiculous!

I don't think this is TMO fault. No other carrier has a BB w the specs u mentioned. So u can thank RIM for that. And how the hell did u get OS6 on ur 8900?!

I go into t mobile today and I could not find the 9780 through the other BB clone phones...and with the 9700 having a semi release of 6.0. Whats the point.

I've seen a couple posts on here saying something about trading your 9700 for the 9780. Do they mean that they are eligable for an upgrade and are trading it in, or are they really somehow just trading it in? I'm confused and interested to know. Thanks

I just purchased this phone yesterday. I went from a Blackberry Pearl 8220 to Blackberry Bold 9780 (I know major update), but anyways. . . I had blackberry web on my old phone so I didn't think my internet would take so long to load. Today is currently day #2 with no internet. I keep taking out the battery and called T-Mobile. They told me that it is a nation wide blackberry internet service erro and that I should keep checking back during the day. Is anyone else having this problem?
