    So here we are on the first rumored-then-retracted launch day, so I thought it was worth commemorating in some way...especially since we now have nothing else to do. :)

    As far as complete Verizon innocence, I would respectfully submit they are co-conspirators in this T-bolt "tbd" dance. After all, didn't they get this all started by teasing us with that post boasting that the 4G T-bolt would be now coming "sooner than we expected" ?? Didn't they feed BB an original Feb. 14 "street date??" Once BB then focused preorderers on this date, why did Verizon leave it to informed bloggers to get the new Feb. 24 date into the communication stream?? And, hey, aren't all these T-Bolt ads peppering us today just a huge slap in the face?? I guess one could still say that Verizon has "officially" stayed mum on the issue to this day...but they are certainly "accidently" reaping huge benefits for all the pre-sales anticipation ramping up, aren't they? I'm beginning to think Lady Ga Ga has nothing on the Verizon marketing crew! :)

    Unless all of this is "outraging" customers so much that there will be a T-bolt backlash. Hey, I know...why don't we stage a peaceful Egypt style protest by saying no thank you to the T-Bolt and all of us going to Walgreens to buy a prepaid phone. (Think of how many minutes we could load for $799). That'll show em! ;)

    Hey, hold on jazzy jayishere...didn't we agree that your next post would be to announce holding a t-bolt for us forum users from the hush-hush feb. 14 bb stock??? I'm thinking that's how we all remember it. :D
