    Don't. These phones are already done.. They wont sit on them for 3 months.. I guess common sense doesn't exist on the internet.

    Doesn't matter if there are dozens of 4G phones ready for release if the network isn't ready.

    Oh and I guess apostrophes don't exist on the internet either.

    how do you know the network isn't ready? that article says smartphones. which could mean that some phones aren't ready, or it could mean all of them are not.

    you don't know, I don't know, noone knows at this point

    Was this even remotely close to how horrible the release was of the Incredible? I have never followed a phone release before and don't plan on doing it again, I JUST WANT THE TBOLT. I stopped looking at blogs and stopped searching google every 10 minutes since my local Verizon Store took my pre order and said they'd call when FedEx drops them off. I dislike waiting for anything!

    yes, they will sit on them for 2 months, but not 3. no how, no way! Common business sense says to cut it off at 2 months, 29 days.

    I was just checking in one last time before I head over to best buy to get an incredible. No new news = green light for operation 'new outdated phone'.

    There is no grammar police on these forums. They said Thunderbolt Q1 at CES and other 4G LTE phones in Q2. They wouldn't sit on the Thunderbolt too long because then it will be outdated tech.

    You will not be dissapointed with the Inc. It is a great phone, and just the right size.

    Unfortunately so is June 30th.... Which is where the problem with this ambiguity from the CTO comes from.

    That's just a CYA type of statement. He also was referring to phoneS... plural.

    March 17th!

    I don't mean to stir the pot with false hope, and I emphasize "take this with a grain of salt" as all our other hopes for this phone have taught us.... but did anyone else see this article?

    Verizon “Promises” HTC Thunderbolt Launch | 4G Phones

    Now im not sure of the reputation of this website, but that is a pretty bold statement for March 10th. The problem is all the other rumors out there seemed the same way :cool:

    That looks like one of them generic sites that pulls articles through a spider engine. Zero trust in anyone that says "100% certain" unless a VZW published statement.

    Not to mention the leaked marketing slide that clearly shows TB AFTER iPad2. BS folks.

    That it is, but the damage this would do to BB and HTC relations would be far worse. Best to release as 3G next week with option to activate in markets it will actually work in. Then update folks that want 4G.

    Based on the design of the options and Johnboy's posts, it seems VZW do NOT intend on giving options- IF the FW in Johnboy's demo is retail level.

    Yea I agree, but hey who knows? (Besides Verizon that is). Ugh to be fair i was very excited for the release and now i feel apathetic. If it does not come out by March 17th AND the other 4G phones will be out by Q2 (yea we have heard verizon promises before) it is tempting to wait and get something that is more complete. Really bums me out, but may be the "smartest" option at this point......:(
