Re: New BB 8530 Release date

I have called Sprint pretty much every day and they all give me different answers. One sprint store said the middle of December and then I called telesales and they said all they show in the computer is by the end of November or the beginning of December. I wish they would all make up there minds as I am getting different answers. I thought they would release it on the same day as verizon but one store told me it all depends on who pays more to the manufacture for a certain release date obviously if that is the case it was Verizon. Sprint really needs to hurry up w/ this one.

Ok. So I called sprint again last night and they are still telling everyone by the end of this month which is this week or the beginning of next month.. Which is next week. So this morning once again i called and got the same answer but when I called corporate at 703-433-4401 the girl called the tech support person who would know and they said they do not have a release date and that what telesales is telling people is not correct. Telesales cannot give that information if we do not have a date. As of now a round about time is not set. The woman says tech support knows about the releases sooner than anyone else. So I guess we will have to hang on and see. If we all keep calling the corporate number above maybe they will hurry up and announce a date. Ya right wishful thinking.

Re: New BB 8530 Release date

Ok so get this.. I just spoke to someone in telesales and she said she has new information. The phone is going to be released on December 1st through telesales, then the web and then the stores and the price is 149.99 after rebate.

So I decided to call again right after that to see if I get the same answer and no I did not. The gentleman I spoke with said that there is no information on the release date or pricing he said he does not know where the person I spoke with got her information....

I wish everyone would just have the same answer and quit confusing people.

I can see why people who comment on other sites, don't like Sprint customer service.

Only I want is my Blackberry and is a reasonable time frame!

Sprint never said anything about November 20, that was the date Verizon gave. I don't know if you realize this but Verizon and Sprint are different companies. Sprint has never announced a launch date and have actually just now come out with a tentative launch date. I don't understand how everyone is mad at Sprint for not launching the device by the date that they never set. I'm just as excited as everyone else for this device, but I am realistic with my expectations.

Re: New BB 8530 Release date

What tenative release date did you hear. Yesterday I heard between December 12th - 23rd. by sprint telesales... But they also told me by November 28th, then i was told December 1st.
