Upcoming BlackBerries for Sprint
 
I am interested in a new replacement for my Blackberry 8830 World Phone. Like the 8830, the new phone must provide CDMA+GSM capability. Does anyone have any information of what phone Sprint will announce to replace the 8830?

Thanks,

-jim

^^Unfortunatley what he said :-(

Not gonna happen for a while.
What did it take for Sprint to get the CDMA curve after the GSM release, about a year?

Bold went to at&t in November...

They have "Pre" on the brain right now - I am sure there will not be any new BB's until well after the Pre is released. They have to replace the Diamond and TP too. Lots to do and too few employees to do it!

I agree Sprint always gets the one track mind and then wonder why many customers still arent happy...

I have to say I spoke to my account specialist last week and he told me no new bb until mid year....yawn. Normally I wouldnt post anything he said but he is always right on and hasnt been wrong yet...even regarding the 4.5 update.

not to sound rude... but how many times can this question be asked?

perhaps a sticky is something to consider

Well, thanks for posting because I have read the same on other forums (some that I see you at also :)) andd thus we are developing a "trend" of the same information - mid to second half of next year. Oh well.

Not a bad idea - a sticky for rumors!

This is the sticky and before I get a hundred pms with "why mine isnt the sticky"...its because I am lazy....now what???? j/k:scare:

Well, now you have a reason to nuke/lock all the others that come after this!

Not to double post this - but THIS Sprint EOL report from Boy Genius Report does not bode well for Sprint BB users at least for this first half of '09. Pearl EOL is May, but no reported replacement. No mention of any others. Darn it. Guess I'll be getting a Pre!

this is fine with me... now that i only have to wait a year to upgrade my phone (got my curve in november) it doesn't bother me if i have to wait a little bit... don't need the temptation to pay full price for an 8900 ;D

Found this link on the web was really wishing this was right as far as the dates are set. :fingers:
