    i guess i have no choice. But i was hoping it be out before august 2nd. I wanted to take some 3D pictures while i was in San Diego. I updated my brothers LG GX2(2.3.4) and the quality build on that phone made my captivate look like real cheap quality. I seriously can't wait to get this phone. i hope i don't regret getting this over the SG2. Im just tired of sammy not backing up U.S. products!!!

    The problem isn't Samsung, it's the carriers. For instance, there's been a Gingerbread leak for the Captivate for over a month now. There's been 2 leaks for the Epic. There's even a leak for the Fascinate. The carriers are holding things up.

    I understand that part but why are we always last on Samsungs list. Overseas gets everything first (phones & updates). I can almost guarantee you U.S
    will see ice cream 6-9 months after being released to Europe & Asia. U.S. is their stepchild in mobile business.

    everybody, like it has been said, its the carriers that slow the updates down. I have been running gb on my cappy for months, Super fast and stable, but no att bloatware. Love my cappy even over my atrix.

    Yesterday I asked AT&T on their Facebook page if we'll be seeing a 3D phone in time for the 3D concert footage they're releasing on August 4th. Here's the response I got from AT&T:

    That makes it look very much like they're going to miss the early August release and it is indeed delayed until mid-late August.

    I walked in to At&T corporate store today and asked if Thrill was delayed but they said that it's still scheduled to be released this Sunday, and they haven't heard anything about the delay. They had the phones in the backroom but I couldn't convince him to show one to me.

    Now that is interesting. I may stop by my store tomorrow.

    ill call one of the at&t stores here and see if its going to be released this sunday. i'm preordered through the shack so it's the 21st for me.
  11. I just called my local AT&T store. They said their current info they have is that it's getting released this Sunday the 7th, but that they don't have any of the phones at the store yet. He did say that sometimes with the new phones, they get them just the day or two before.

    Just called two of the att stores near my house. They said Sunday release.

    Where are you guys located....I called two local Dallas, TX att stores and they had never heard of the phone, none came in, no release info at all ...Best buy was the same story..no info in the computer, no inventory


    when I asked about the attain I was laughed at :(

    I'm in Los Angeles
  15. San Antonio here. We're both in prime AT&T HQ territory, I'm surprised the Dallas AT&T stores wouldn't be more up to date.

    Anyone know if the Thrill has a NFC chip?

    I am curious about the phone so I am hoping it will be released soon.

    I am hoping the 3D is a lot better in this phone than it is on the Evo 3d

    Just gave my local store here in Minneapolis MN a call and they have nothing for it being released tomorrow and he has just been reading on the internet that the date was pushed back to the 21st. (either they are really being hush hush until tomorrow, or it truly is being delayed). My guess would be the latter. :(

    i have a feeling it's getting released on august 21. went to the att website and it still has the coming soon for a release date.

    Though they usually don't change the website until the actual release, so I wouldn't read too much into that.

    Maybe we should all start calling stores to see what info we can dig up. If can get more to confirm tomorrow, then I would feel better. ;)

JULY 25We post an exclusive broadcast of the show.AUGUST 4Watch the concert craziness in full 3D*."

    of course the 25th and 4th has come and gone

    Phones are such a mess this year

    I did call a local best buy mobile store and one of the guys took the time to actually look it up, he found notes that the release was possibly delayed, later with confirmation of the delay and that the accessories they have are not to go out until a later date (possible to be the 21st)

    just called two more at&t stores. One in town and one about 45 minutes from Bakersfield. The one in town said set for tomorrow but the one in Porterville said they haven't gotten a release date


    update: called another at&t store in Lancaster (about 1hr 1/2 away) - Not til the 21st

    Called one in Palmdale (near Lancaster) - Not til the 21st

    So......i think all those at&t stores that say tomorrow haven't heard of the date change and are putting them out to be released for the 7th if they have them in stock.

    Damn......that sucks. What a crappy release plan.

    agree....i wonder what the main push back was. anyway....LG and at&t should of had stuck with the july release date to try and sell as many units as possible before i5 and sg2 comes out.
