    no real news here, but my best buy seems to be getting ready, just in case they happen to finally get the phone this week... check it out.

    future thunderbolt display? on Twitpic

    again, not that this means anything, but the buyback program is there on the thunderbolt placeholder ad. probably just cramming as much advertisement per square inch as they can.

    They had that at my best buy also but I dont know if that is where they plan to put it when they get the phone I think just is more for people to see while they wait until a release is announced.

    honestly I think BB is as clueless as us to the actual launch date. I'm not even sure Verizon or HTC know when the launch date is at this point.

    Mgr : Welcome to VZW may I help you

    Me: Just checking on any updates for the tbolt

    Mgr: Release was set for the 24th , moved to the 28th and now we have no clue ...

    That would not surprise me one bit.....

    Is everyone at Verizon that clueless or they just don't won't anyone to know the true release date?

    I dont think we're clearing a space as much as advertising a bit more

    I would say a combo of both! Its crazy right? You would think they would be so excited, this is what the iPhone does to a network.

    It all makes the "Apple gag order" that much more credible. I'm holding out for 2/24, no advanced notice. :D Though, I'd really, really like some advanced notice so I can list my Incredible. As of right now, I should be able to get about $25 short of what I'll need for a TB.

    I am going to sell my inc asap to what do you think a fair price would be for it?


    My Best Buy and a Local VZW are still promising the 24th.

    Verizon is buying old phones back and I think the Inc in good condition was selling for $150

    Check out eBay and look at the ended auctions. They're going for $200 - $230-ish.
