Looks like the Rogers BlackBerry Bold will soon be making its debut across Canada with a series of launch parties beginning early July. The fun begins in Toronto on July 8th, heads to Montreal for the 9th, and then skips over the best Canadian city (Winnipeg! lol) to hit the western Canadian cities of Calgary and Vancouver on July 15th and 17th, respectively. 

As for the exact consumer release date of the BlackBerry Bold on Rogers we're still not sure... but it would make sense that it coincide with or be the day after the final launch party, don't you think?

I can't take the excitement anymore!!! Can we pleeeeeeeeeeease get the Bold already?!?! I'm hoping this means AT&T will get the Bold the end of July. I just couldn't stand it if I had to wait until Sept. I'm super envious of the people in Canada and the UK :-( I can't wait to see what they have to say about the Bold.

I'm not hating on Winnipeg...I'm located in Winnipeg!

I'm hating on Rogers for passing us by!

So if I have T-Mo here in the U.S. Couldn't I call Rogers and buy a Bold and have them ship it to me then unlock it?? Would that work??

oilseeker

I'm guessing that they don't have them in quite yet, as the button you click on says "Place Backorder." Of course, they might have them and just be completely sold out!

Is there a link I can use to signup for the seminar?

Thx

dan_dare

Sorry, I was in a hurry.

What I wanted to say was that:
a) it looks like at least one shop will offer unlocked BB Bolds
b) the price is going to be about $630 by the looks of ít

How do I sign up for the launch party in T.O.?

Ok so what shop will offer the unlocked Bold? If you know could you post their location or ph#?? My other question is will this unlocked device work normally on T-MO service in the U.S. ??

ok so can somebody tell me if an unlocked Blackberry Bold will be fully functional with T-Mobile, aside from T-Mo lacking 3g of course.

Anonymous

No reason why it shouldn't. I have an unlocked 8707 (the other 3G blackberry) and it worked fine for me with my T-Mobile SIM card (in Japan, no less).

sgtoca

Yikes, someone must have asked this someplace somewhere, but will the BOLD have a CDMA release?

lilcoopr

How do we sign up for the Toronto BB Bold party? Does anyone know??

the events are by invite only ... i got my invite in a sealed envelope from my rogers rep. I had to RSVP at http://blackberryboldevent.com and input my email address, which loaded all my info and confirmed my invite. There are a few spots for guests, but will prob b tough to get in.

crackberryadd1ct

err, RIM needs to hurry up and put this on the market. I need a new phone asap, and i don't want to have to end up buying a 88xx when this phone is coming out shortly. HURRY UP RIM!!!
