If the advertising material is to be believed it would seem as though the BlackBerry Bold 9780 will soon be arriving on Virgin Mobile. The image above, leaked out earlier today and shows the BlackBerry 9780 marked as a refresh. Information indicates a release date of October 21st with pricing set at $149 on contract and $549 off contract. Since Virgin Mobile has added the BlackBerry Bold 9700 to their EOL list it does make sense. I really can't see Virgin Mobile being the only carrier at that time to launch the device. Keep in mind though, this date has been mentioned many times before when speaking of launch dates for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 on quite a few carriers including Rogers and TELUS.

lol. they won't release OS6 for the 9700 until the 9780 is on sale or people wouldn't upgrade.
ps. had this for for a few months back in july/august. was a very solid phone and fast.

those that are calling BS... please look at my profile pics and my wallpaper thread under the 9780 to see my pics/video i did when i had it.

If the 5.0 release shows anything, the phone companies will not release 6.0 for the 9700 for another year (8900 with Rogers prime example)

This needs to drop already so us "basic" 9700 users can have our god-damn 6 update already! ARRRRRRRR.

does this mean that its only going to be released in canada, because the united states doesnt have the supertag deal or the other blackberrys on virgin mobile
