@Mugen. Yes. it is available in india for 15K.
I am confused between BOLD 9000 and 8520. I am getting pretty good rate from US for BOLD 9000.
I also checked the Tour 9630. But it doesnt have Wi-fi.
So which one should i go for ?

What price your getting the BOLD from the US?

As a BOLD user, i can tell you if its cheaper than in India, dont think twice. BOLD is the best BB that is out there in terms of features as well as showing off capability

whats the confusion? The price sounds good and there is no phone yet in the BB stable that is comparable to a Bold. Go for it

I feel you should pick up a Tour 9630 as its something new and isnt available here. We all know how useless wi-fi on a Blackberry is anyway. And if you dont like it I am there to snatch it up

ok i think ive managed to unbrick my blackberry. now if anyone needs help with that contact me. i think by now i know everything about unbricking bbs. lol.

the most important lesson is to plug it into the usb at the back of the comp while updating any software.

No actually the device should be directly connected to the USB port. Ports on the keyboard/front are basically like USB hubs and should be avoided for sensitive stuff like OS/Firmware upgrades.

Storm is not a major hit in the market just because it drinks up the battery juice a lot. A friend of mine has it and isn't too happy with it.

Actually it depends on the price, you should have mentioned that here so we could comment. Its a nice phone, the first few firmware versions were buggy make sure you upgrade the OS as soon as you get it.
