White Bold 9700 Delayed?


For those of you that were looking to pick up a BlackBerry Bold 9700 in that sexy white color, we have some bad news. Unfortunately, it looks like the white Bold 9700 has been delayed. Originally, the white variation was scheduled for a May 5th release, but our sources are now telling us it has been delayed for unknown reasons. We’re working on finding more info as to exactly when it will be released, but until then hold tight. We’ll keep you guys updated!

    • mad dog

      Sorry but bb 6.0 isn’t coming out until 3rd quarter(july-september)

      • J-Hop2o6

        i dont care for or use BB.. i was just throwing that out there.

    Wats up with T-Mobile and all these delays?

  • Tom

    More likely because the original 9700 is a buggy piece of garbage. Nothing but random rebooting, messaging issues, and problems. And yes, I see it everyday. I sell them for T-mobile.

      Between myself and 2 other family members we’ve had absolutely none of the issues you mention.

      Not a single reboot, message problem, or any other problem.
      If there are any problems they stem from t-mobile’s OS version.

        Yeah, same here. I have had the 9700 since it’s been out and no problems! I also sell them through T-Mobile.

    Man, oh man…if they’re delaying the white 9700 to put the 512mb of memory on it needed to run OS6 I will be a very happy camper. I love my 9700, but I’d definitely get the white one if it meant more memory & OS6. And I wouldn’t mind waiting, either.

    was i the “source” since i posted that this phone was delayed on ur last post about the white bb 9700????? check to post if u need proof but yea delays suck ass…

    • Tom

      tmo – what kind of failure rate are you seeing on the existing 9700’s? We are seeing alot of problems.

  • DjYoUnG

    it was delayed because the new blackberry software is going to be released on May 19th OTA and at t-mobile.com/bbupgrade so they pulled the white bold for the software update.

    • BoomBoomBang

      Well that makes sense. I went to AT&T today to look at the white bb bold 9000 and that white color is SEXYYYYYYY.!!!!

      It’s like a pearly white shiny glossy ugh love it !
