We’re just wanting the BlackBerry Bold 9780 to launch to see what the price plan will be. The hype over the phone ended a long time ago and it was delayed for some reason by both Virgin and Bell. Rogers and TELUS only said that the device will be released “in the coming weeks”. If you’re into 3-year contracts there has been several price points flying around for this new Bold: Bell and Virgin have it at $149.99 on a 3-year and the TELUS internal doc puts this at the low $99.99 on a 3-year. However, taking a look over at the Future Shop website shows Rogers Bold 9780 going a bit on the high side and priced it at $179.99 on 3-year. On a good note… all the carriers agree on the no-contract price of $499.99.

    179.99 on a 3 year contract? clearly rogers is stuck in the past. nobody is going to buy that outdated phone for 179.99 on a 3 year contract, at least i hope..

      If it ain’t broke…

      Besides, the Bold is one of the best selling BB’s still, and with OS 6 it’s far from “outdated”.

    Its all coming together now, the price of the torch went to $229.99 and now this. They couldn’t have the torch at 199 and then have this phone at 179. I have no idea what rogers is thinking. The torch should be 169 and this phone should be between 99-129. If telus can sell it for 99.99 why cant rogers?

    This way they can have christmas sale of the torch at 169 and the bold at 99

    Ok for Christmas sales, what about the people that wanted to upgrade now or were looking for a deal now. I have a 8900 that I would love to switch for a 9780 but not at that price.

    And at christmas they may make the phones affordable but rogers has a habit of making the plans worse.

    ha ha ha…
    Rogers – “Look at our Christmas specials! Now at the regular pricing of all the other carriers!”

    The BlackBerry 9780 is priced at $149.99 on three year term, not $179.99.
