SaskTel: “We are planning on carrying the Bold 9900”

The upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900 will be making the rounds to our Canadian carriers. We’ve already seen this on a few Bell internal docs, plus we hear that TELUS andRogers will be releasing this too. Heck, even Dave Dobbin, Mobilicity CEO, is using this while he treks across Canada in their “We’ll prove it to you Tour”. Now regional carrier SaskTel has tweeted their intentions to bring this touchscreen/QWERTY device to the province. They noted that “We are planning on carrying the Bold 9900 but I don’t know of an exact date at this time”. This is right on track with the internal doc we posted back in May that shows the next Curve, Bold, Torch and Storm. The Bold 9900 is expected to be available late August/early September.

    so telus ? nothing to tell us ?…you wanna be so (future)friendly that you’ll stay behind every one else but push us to be so rude to jump in others boat ?…

      They ought to giddy up and clear out all their obsolete CDMA phones and legacy end-of-life devices. While high-end superphones are not my favourite, TELUS should carry at least two for that market.

    Can someone who has a SaskTel service please tell me what the company is like and how their products and services are?


      I have been with SaskTel since I moved back to Saskatchewan last year. I haven’t had any problems with service – the odd dropped call but nothing major. I don’t deal directly with SaskTel for the product/plan though. I deal with (locations in Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and probably other centers). Bought the extended warranty for my BlackBerry Tour and when the battery stopped charging I was able to walk in and get a brand new battery, no questions asked, didn’t even have to sign anything. When I went shopping for my PlayBook, they didn’t have the 64G in stock but they had one sent on the bus and I had it the next day. When was promo-ing their PlayBook accessories they matched the offer and let me buy one get one half off. Great people to deal with!
