T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Bold 9700 finally gets OS 6

While official word has yet to come from T-Mobile’s camp, we’ve heard from multiple sources that the carrier has finally released BlackBerry OS 6 for its BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone. The update isn’t yet live on the website, but 9700 owners who connect to BlackBerry Desktop on their PCs should be able to install the update. The release build is version 6.0.0.448, as has been known for quite some time, and this is the first version of OS 6 made available to Bold users by T-Mobile. More →

Best Buy Mobile reveals new Free Phone Friday special for October 22

This week’s specials are in, and the folks over at your local Best Buy Mobile location have a few solid treats in store. Free Phone Friday, for those who failed Obvious 101, is a promotion that gives customers a new selection of free phones each week in October… on Friday. Here is this week’s lot:

  • Samsung Fascinate (Verizon Wireless)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (AT&T)
  • Sanyo Zio (Sprint)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (T-Mobile)

As you might imagine, each phone requires a new 2-year contract to be had for the low, low price of nada. As you also might imagine, this offer is only good for one day — Friday, October 22 — so get ready to head out bright and early Friday morning if you’d like to partake. Or, of course, you can just order these puppies up from the Best Buy Mobile website. More →
