BlackBerry Bold 9900 sold out at T-Mobile

BlackBerry Bold 9900 sold out at T-Mobile
It was just yesterday when T-Mobile launched the BlackBerry Bold 9900. After one day, the model is now sold out at the nation's fourth largest carrier. The surge in sales for the T-Mobile variant of RIM's new flagship model came despite a surprisingly high price tag of $299.99 that the carrier placed on the phone, after a signed 2-year contract and a $50 rebate. Verizon and Sprint, selling essential the same phone as T-Mobile with the CDMA flavored BlackBerry Bold 9930, are offering their model for $249.99 with a signed 2-year pact.

Those T-Mobile customers who absolutely need to have one of the best physical QWERTY keyboards ever put on a smartphone, can head over to third party retailers like Walmart. Perhaps the fact that T-Mobile is sold out of the Bold 9900 will actually be a panacea as it will allow you to purchase the unit for a lower price.

Despite the mostly kind words from those who have purchased the phone, who would have expected a complete sellout of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 in just 24 hours for T-Mobile?

Might be, but Walmart is notorious for screwing up cell phone accounts, so you have to be careful with these 3rd party national retailers.

Yeah, I was wondering how many phones were sent to each store. If it is a nationwide empty shelf condition, how many phones did T-Mo order? I haven't heard where Sprint or VZW have sold out of their edition (9930) of the Bold.

wtf I wouldn't want this pos phone even if it was free! the gs2 is a 1000x better and I could care less about that stupid keyboard. $249 with 2 years LOL WTF what idiots would possibly...? I know - t-mobile probably after noticing how dumb the phone is decided to throw it back to rim and came up with some BS story about all-sold-out. Honestly I heard some stupid stories before but this?

There is one refurbished available on line, i took that POS back after a week, -RIM took 2 steps forward & four steps back with this phone & i have always had a bold for a long time now, battery has a drain of about 25% every hour, locked up 2 times a day and very slow, pinch sucks & touch screen sucked, screen way to small for those options.
