Now this is some welcome news. There were some pretty good signs pointing towards a 3G 9700 Bold/Onyx coming to T-Mobile this year (including a picture of one) but this more or less confirms it. Al Sacco over at CIO was sent a email from T-Mobile’s US PR firm before any embargo agreement.
They also sent him a little blurb about it:
The BlackBerry ‘Onyx’ sports a premium experience and design with a high-gloss black finish and leather grain detail on the back. Boasting features such as high-speed 3G Web browsing, Wi-Fi calling, visual voicemail and support for corporate and personal e-mail options, the ‘Onyx’ will satisfy all your on-the-go needs. Also the phone comes preloaded with mobile applications from BlackBerry App World, including Amazon MP3 store for quick and easy music downloads and TeleNav GPS Navigator for turn-by-turn directions.
The device is not officially called a Bold yet and we won’t know that for sure until later. Hopefully this will include UMA support with Wi-Fi at launch. The addition of the Amazon MP3 store is interesting. So what do you think?September 8, 2009 at 9:13 PM #180823
Looks great! I do assume it will support UMA, wouldn’t make any sense not to. Notice they are officially saying Onyx where as before it was Driftwood for T-Mo and Onyx for other carriers? Onyx does sound better. Will be picking this one up the day it comes out!September 8, 2009 at 9:23 PM #180824

Need advice on how to get this for less than full price even though my current contract is only a few months old (due to 8900). My wife’s is up however. I wonder if I can get a deal if I get two 9700. Anyone got any advice?September 8, 2009 at 9:48 PM #180826

I am psyched over this. I have been holding onto my crappy AT&T service for 2 months (after my contract expired) and keep stopping myself from getting the Bold from AT&T at $125 from Amazon… Waiting for this. I still have my T-Mo service (since 2001) so I am eligible for Loyalty unlimited plan. I hope they won’t price this something like $399 (what they did with 8800, ridiculous) so that I can get it. I love UMA it works very nicely on my wifes 8900 without any problems.
Come on T-Mo, just do it already so I can switch back.

Hi, I was wondering what is a loyalty unlimited plan and how much is it? I’ve been with tmobile for 10 years now and am wondering if i could ask for a better plan service. Thanks!September 9, 2009 at 4:11 PM #180833
The T-Mo “Loyalty Unlimted Plan” is unlimited calling for $49.99 and is only available to T-Mo customers who have been with T-Mo 22+ months and is good standing.
