    This phone is coming out on Thursday. Do not begin to let doubt set in, my friends.

    I have much (read: some) confidence in this.

    Steven and I are talking to Chris at Phandroid about this 20th thing.

    It's just giving equal time for other tips from CSRs and speculation.

    None of us know until Verizon officially says so, and good compadre Chris is just trying to be fair and square to everyone writing in.

    Hope that helps!

    More importantly - Don't Panic!

    It's probably not texting but a data-based service like a messenger. But yes, unless you have an active texting plan, you will not be able to text.

    Dude, one of the coolest things ever was in Kihei, at The Dog and Duck Irish pub, They had a guy on the violin, a guy on bongo drums and a lead singer on a guitar. They played the coolest arrangements of songs. Everything from U2 to Johnny Cash.

    We were blown away! The creativity these guys showed was awesome. The beer and margaritas may have had something to do with it too...........

    I think if the 15th date becomes the 20th, it is pretty obvious that there is still an issue with the phone and any date we hear is just an internal target with the hopes of clearing things up by that date. Pretty sad if that is the case. I thought maybe the 9th came and went and Verizon fixed whatever has been holding it up, so it'd be really disheartening to hear that the issue still exists.

    In a different life I was a music major: I play trombone. I actually had a pretty consistent gig with a regional salsa band, which was interesting. Everyone else was from Puerto Rico and a professional salsa player. I was the lame, out-of-place white guy, lol.

    Yep, this is exactly why I didn't get my hopes up for the 15th. I know I'm a pessimist, but I'm in the "not going to believe anything until it's from VZW's mouth". Only 8 days! :rolleyes: Come ON Verizon...get a clue.

    OT Classical Music:
    Dude, I play clarinet too! I've played with my high school's orchestra a couple of times and won some concerto competitions (working on Weber Concerto II now). 15 years old and been playing for about 7 years now.

    Also, my parents are both classically trained pianists; my mom is a concert pianist and has toured Europe and stuff. And whenever I need an accompanist for my pieces, they both learn the part so that if one can't accompany me for whatever reason, the other one subs in ;D

    Anyways, I've had a couple lessons with John Yeh, and Kenneth Grant (clarinet head @ Eastman).

    BTW, I now do house/electronic music, so if anyone's interested please check out my SoundCloud: http://soundcloud.com/megaphonix :)

    Only positive I can see out of this if it becomes the 20th is that the postponement window keeps getting smaller and smaller. Nov. 28th to Dec. 8th/9th to Dec. 15th to Dec. 20th to Dec. 22nd? to Dec. 23rd? to in our hands?

    well...4G is a subset of their phones....maybe that's what they meant?

    Or else they have a rule that everyone that asks must be given a different answer...just to mess with us...

    ETA: Wait...why does it not show up when some people edit their posts? Did I not actually get ninja'd on the ninja post?? Hehe THIS IS IMPORTANT

    Verizon could easily push this into next year. I think they have shown they can/will do whatever they want with this release.

    But Chris has heard the 20th from some sources? I haven't heard the 20th at all, so that is news to me (though he's probably in more of a position to hear things than me).

    Comment from Chris:

    LOL! It was a minor statement to show more or less that nothing is official. Everyone is saying something different. It's pretty nuts actually. I honestly don't even think Verizon knows =p

    Not nearly enough evidence to make this assumption. Particularly this late at night.

    Pretty much the only reason to get a doctorate in clarinet is to teach at a university, which is what I ultimately want to do. It does have the happy effect of polishing your playing to a higher level than when you started, but depending on where you go to school (I'm at Michigan State), it can actually leave you less prepared to play in a symphony than it otherwise would, since most doctoral programs don't have the single-minded* focus on orchestral performance that you'd get at a conservatory like Julliard (where our very own Steven went, if I recall correctly?). I know that I personally don't stand any chance of ever playing in a top-tier symphony, and even smaller regional ones would be a longshot.

    The world of instrument construction and design is small enough that there isn't really a standard path to a career in it, but training in instrument repair seems to be a relatively common element among the big-name folks. I guess that makes sense—once you're used to modifying instruments, it's probably only natural to start building them from scratch.

    Also, it's neat to see how many other music folks are also into technology :)

    * Not intended derisively, just highlighting the difference in approaches. Most symphony players got there by focusing heavily on orchestral audition music for years and then taking hundreds of auditions. It's tough to compete with that ;)

    Wow, another clarinetist, neat! That's some serious stuff, too—I've heard great stuff about those guys. Are you looking to pursue music as a career?
