    Hey, here's some potentially good news for any impatient and financially comfortable Thrill seekers (ha! no pun intended, that just happened. Thrill seekers! Get it? OK maybe it's not that funny.)

    LG Optimus 3D P920 Smartphone Unlocked Import at MobileCityOnline.com

    Buying phones from import sites isn't news or anything, but I came across this and thought I might as well share because 1. it comes unlocked, which is super convenient, 2. it supports 2G bands for at&t and t-mo, and a 3G band (SINGULAR!) for AT&T - and maybe t-mo too but I don't know what their 3G frequencies are - and 3. even though the price is about $100 more than what you're going to pay off contract in the US, it's still much cheaper than usual for an unlocked import of a brand new phone.

    I cannot recommend the website, because I have never used them. If anyone imported or plans to import, let us know how it went!

    This is BS....i want this phone bad and it's always getting delayed. AT&T better not launch S2 before this. What happen to the july release that they started from the beginning.

    I rather wait then buy one for full price. I read on a lnk the delay might be due to att promising 2.3 on all android devices. If this is the reason I'm fine with the extra 2 weeks

    This doesn't make much sense from a marketing standpoint. AT&T & Samsung had a big event with the concert and they're releasing the 3D video on August 4th. If they don't have a phone to watch it on, do you think that's going to go over very well? I doubt they're releasing it for Epic 3D owners. :)

    I'm guessing, maybe hoping, it's just a Radio Shack thing.

    LG Thrill 4G Release Date Postponed

    read the second paragraph about people that has already pre-ordered the phone. i wonder if it's true that we were able to pick up the phone today?

    Man, I have to say "total failure" on handling the releasing this phone from both AT&T and LG. No update on when it's officially going to be released? :(

    Been watching paint dry so long that I see it starting to peel. This is getting boring. Not even one update this week. :(

    Well we have just a little over a week before release date. I've already ordered two extra batteries plus a stand alone charger. I'm not getting any case or skins(like my phone naked) but might get a car holder for GPS purposes. Even if its delayed again I rather have this phone then the SG2. So ill be waiting for the release.

    LG is just setting themselves up for failure. They longer they wait the harder it is to sell. 2.3 better be the reason!

    I used to work for 2 different cell phone companies not to long ago and from my experience with smart phones is that when they delay them like this its not to update them to the newest firmware but somebody in corporate messed up and they didn't have the units ready to ship. My issue with LG is that they've already sent units to AT&T Stores, gave units in AT&T packaging to reviewers and have had all these events about the phone (even giving the unit out for free to locals) and yet still no official release date. They spent all this money and still haven't sold one phone yet lol.
