Have an urge to try out the BlackBerry Style 9670, but not looking to start up a new contract at Sprint? According to the picture above, Boost Mobile will be getting this device in soon, so you can explore your clamshell curiosities without commitment. For all the jokes I hear about the Style and its unique look, the word from people that actually own one is that it's a great device. I had doubts before it was released, but I took a trip to a Sprint store with Bla1ze one day and decided the design isn't bad at all. And it sure beats the BlackBerry Pearl Flip

According to the screenshot, you'll be able to pick the BlackBerry Style up for $199, though apparently the rumor is Best Buy will have them for $280, so I suppose we'll see when it comes out. Personally I think this is a good move. Summer is underway, but it's never to early to think about back-to-school, and I think flip phones are a good choice for tweens and teens, especially prepaid. Go ahead, make it a BlackBerry!

new 6.0 device now? interesting MSRP price.

So does that mean Sprint will drop the Style to $199 off contract on their network. Same phone, different radio.

More like "Same phone, different programming".

Boost mobile uses Sprint's network, so it just has a different PRL

LOL what style?? Do they mean this phone has the style of a 1998 pocket wizard?

Yeah, all those jokes were made back in October when it was first released. Move along.

You can hang it from your front pocket and you look cool!!! Seriously though, it's probably the best, most reliable phone I've owned.

can you bridge this to your pb?

For those of you that haven't tried one, back down, it's a damn good phone. I never have issues with mine and I for one, love the form factor. I know people with Bolds who can't get through a day with out a battery pull. There have been few instances where I've needed to do one. This phone rocks and it's a shame it isn't available to more carriers.

@mkoso, you'll survive :o) aslong as you're happy with your device who cares what others have to say?

Yep, love mine it is easy to use, no accidental calls or other functions, nice clock on front and it is sooo retro. @mkoso65 is right, to bad more carriers did not pick this up. I think I have pulled the battery once and it was my fault as a newbie BB owner. Before you dis it, check it out, although a touch screen would have really rocked this.

Switched from a Torch to a Style. Don't miss the accidental dials one bit. Love clicking it closed and hanging it up too--it also has awesome battery life.

My wife and I both switched to the style from the curve and we love it! this has been the BEST blackberry we have used.. ALSO... we bought the Otterbox case for these from RITZcamera.com for around 20$ each...

THIS PHONE IS A COMPLETE PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!! I COULD NEVER DOWNLOAD THE APPS I WANT AND IF I DID THE PHONE WOULD GO HAYWIRE AND AFTER 9 HORRIBLE MONTHS OF FREEZING AND SELF RESTART I RETURNED IT AND CANCELLED MY CONTRACT. NEVER ANOTHER WACKBERRY.
