    Is there anymore information that the hold up was due to the development of VoLTE? I read somewhere yesterday that both the TB and the LG Revolution would have this capability at some point. Also any confirmation that this phone will have the simultaneous voice/data on cdma?

    Ok, so I just checked our system as of now, this minute, our IN STOCK date is 2-21-11. That leads me to believe release is the rumored 2-24-11. or 2-22-11...we don't release the same day stuff comes in though.

    Also, there is no street date, so technically best buy can sell as soon as it comes in, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    What are you new? It's not a rumor when I post stuff that has evidence to back it up, which is the only stuff I post, ever.

    just wanted to say thanx for any info you post, i know how demanding people can be when wanting to know. and if someone does not believe it, dont believe it, dont waste our time posting that you dont believe it. I went thru the same thing last year trying to keep everyone updated when i got the X 2 weeks early. just glad you can give us any real info.

    I'm in the same boat as everyone here, waiting for this thing to come out, and I'd want to know any semi-official details possible.

    Like I said, as of now it's like that, it could change. If it does, I'll update it to the best of my ability. I work tonight, tomorrow night, thursday, saturday, sunday, monday(day we get it)

    so I'll be sure to know.

    Gotcha. By the way, I got the 1 and 2 year contract amounts mixed up. Switch 'em around. I just wanted to clarify just in case someone saw my previous post. Anyways, thanks for the info.

    By any chance does your info tell you how many units your store is getting in? I'm only asking because I am 5th on my stores list and I was wondering roughly how many most stores would get. Thanks for your help and good intel.
