metropcs never giving out specific dates for their phone releases is not good practice. why they do this i have no idea.
with that said, metroPCS has not given out an official specific date for when this phone was to be released. their website says it will be released this month so if it comes out on holloween day metro kept their promise of releasing the phone this month. if it comes out later than that then people have legit reason to be angry.
all these dates have been given out by people who dont know anything. everyone is guessing, and metro should do something about their employees guessing and for a while they did as i heard some people went to stores asking about this phone and were told by reps they couldnt say anything about it. so you have people breaking the rules spewing dates not knowing jack. we've all been swept away by RUMORS when the only thing we've actually been promised by metro themselves is the phone coming out in october.
dont believe the hype. there are 14 days left in the month.
when it comes to choosing the best service one must remember: location location location!!!
