    Since when are VZW reps/employees that aren't high level, good sources of information?

    Probably the same time we considered non-high level Best Buy employees good sources of information. :rolleyes:

    I never claimed to be a good source of information. I only pass along what I see, and anyone with a brain knows they don't let much trickle down to store employees. My biggest strength is being able to track shipments and what not, not predict release dates (never have)

    As per the wording of my post "yet"?

    1. Everything is relative (Most info to date has been abosolute BS and ZERO supporting evidence)
    2. The person has a real TB and a VZW supported event (evidence)
    3. Tad more stable of a source than the third, fourth and fifth party "certain" info sources given to date.

    Not hard to go "up" with info when near everything so far has been complete BS.

    Never stated that you said you were a good source.

    My statement was that we, meaning the people on this forum, must have, at one point, started to consider you a good source of release info evident by all of the posts asking, "What do you know", "Any info", "When do you think it will come out"

    You seem a little touchy today. Don't take things so personal. It's just a phone.

    I don't care about the phone, I care about the way I'm perceived, because that's everything in life. I didn't start posting here as the be all end all, I started posting to help people get a little more information from best buy on the phone, since it's a retail exclusive.

    That's all.


    And no one is that great of a source, unless you're the guy who makes the decisions, you could have the best info, but if someone changes their mind you look like crap.

    Precisely why I assume nothing.

    I wasn't trying to bust your balls or anything. Just trying to lighten the atmosphere a little.

    Let's cut jayishere some slack. Have you folks ever been to DC? The traffic is whack!

    My sympathy to anyone who deals with that stuff everyday. Nice place to visit though :)

    I think everyone is a little touchy about "this just a phone". I myself have become a little jaded about the whole thing.

    I want to have the latest and the greatest and right now that is LTE on Verizon. I really thought that VZW would be making a bigger push to get this thing out, but like all things we may never get the whole story.

    The traffic is so bad here I get stuck in a traffic jam walking to my car in the morning.

    This definitely is the best, most accurate speculation out there No clue when it will release I believe that more than any other date floating around

    I think the bickering should be edited out and than maybe a sticky applied because it would sure be nice to have one quick thread with a simple theme...

    Out!!
    Not Out!!
    Announced!!!
    Not Announced!!

    Leave one thread for that and only that stuff and we can do speculation and what not in the others threads.

    Blunderbolt- all ready for a nickname :)

    Again, VZW can not win.. Release now and if issues, they will be killed by the media and consumers. Best for them to take their hits in more contained places. The forums ;)

    Yet another link where we can't deconflict the author's opinion and paraphrasing (in blue below) from what was actually said:

    And also follow-up discussions here, while clarifying, basically repeat what's been said in other threads - including the need for more threads.

    I'd suggest we have plenty of threads repeating info and this stuff would best go here - http://androidforums.com/htc-thunde...-mecha-aka-incredible-hd-htc-coming-soon.html

    To prevent chaos, I'm closing this one rather than merging the two.

    Anyone thinking I'm acting in haste or not in your best interests, PM me, door's always open.
