    UPDATE:

    Lisa from Sprint tech just called me back. She wanted to correct herself, as she did a quick follow up after our phone conversation.

    The Google IO phones are the SAME as the Launch Batch.

    Please disregard my prior post. Ugh! My apologies!

    Wow you just made a whole lot of people mad who paid outrageous amounts for these phones off eBay and craigslist :) ... But anyone who has bought new phones always know the first release of phones are the testers to see what needs to be fixed... buyer beware

    OH--IO
    That sucks for Ebay buyers...lol. That error is the one reported by that iPhone guy that bashed the battery and stuff.

    Please.

    Information is information. I did try and note that you could believe it or not... up to you. I'm simply being a messenger and passing it along.

    *shrug*

    On the other hand, I did find it interesting that she actually called me back almost immediately.

    Didnt mean it towards you... :(

    But towards Lisa the tech...Giving information but not providing ACCURATE information!!! I always tell my agents I would rather you check your answer if youre not sure than provide the quick answer that is WRONG to your customers.:D

    However KUDOS to Lisa for correcting her mistake- That shows Sprint has improved in the CS department. And KUDOS to you for updating your thread!!!

    Huh? What made anyone think the Google phones are different from the phones coming out on the 4th? The only thing with them is that they are demo until the 20th, and there is a special google I/O discount.. what else was said to make people think otherwise?

    I was in a conversation with a support tech earlier this morning, who gave me inaccurate information. Not 2 minutes after I made my post, she actually called me back and corrected it.

    Nothing to see here. Move along. Have a nice day.

    :p

    This post got a 180 degree edit after the first 4 posts...initially Bek posted that the phones WERE different, so the poster you quoted was reacting to that.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    What does this system let you type the word **** but not the word ***** cat? :thinking:
