Thunderbol​t RELEASE!!!

Well I'm not sure if I'm waiting anymore, I almost bought the Droid X in Feb but the Verizon guy told me to hold out for the Thunderbolt.  So I didn't purchase it for that very reason and here I am now, stuck in this internet frenzy of rumor after rumor as to when this dang phone is supposed to be released!!!  For god’s sake… I’m getting more info from some “Leak” at a Best Buy store on the internet than I have from VW.  Well, I’ve waited for a while now and have seen the commercials and still no official word from VW themselves?  This is getting old and I’ll probably settle and go back to the Droid X.  But then again, I only have 4 months left on my entire contract for my phone and the 3 other phones on my plan, maybe Sprint or AT&T wouldn’t mind my business on their networks?  Whatever, I’m done waiting!!!  I’ll give Verizon until March 10th and then I’m out!

Better get ready for ATT then because now they are talking "sometime in the 2nd quarter, or first half of 2011"

 

Sounds like June to me.

 

Sounds like NO Blunderbolt to me.

seriously? theres already a post witht he exact title and the thread is hot. why make a new one? Spam much?

 

anyway, nobody will buy the Tbolt ifit doesnt come out in March. if it woulda came out in february im sure verizon coulda had way more customers for it than they will when its released. if its released in June or NOT in march, people will look at it as outdated technology and wait for the bionic or the LG phone lol...

 

verizon is fuggin up BIG TIME by not releasing the phone by now and fuggin up even more by not communicating and giving us a date/price/month it will be released in. VZW, keep doing this to your customers. Other networks are being upgraded and becoming better, and did i mention CHEAPER? phones on different networks are cheaper...cheaper service...

 

little by little will they lose customers

I don't think it's as big of a deal to most people as everyone on here seems to think. Is it annoying? Yes. It certainly isn't a dealbreaker for the vast majority of people. You know what would be worse than a delay of (what is so far) a couple of weeks? Releasing a phone with bugs or a bad network connection (which is what I believe the problem is, not that Apple controls VZW). That would not only bother those of us that keep up to date with phone releases, but it would also upset the multitudes that buy a phone that can't connect to the network. So while it certainly isn't good for VZW that there is a delay, I am fairly sure that VZW has thought this out and determined that a delay is the lesser of two evils.

I agree with the lesser of two evils however I think that all people are asking for is a little transparency by VZW.  I have been a customer for a decade with an air card and expensive cell bill.  About $250 a month.  I know I can't hurt VZW, but it seems to be a trend that people are pretty P.O.'d.  I hope that Verizon sees how they are disappointing people and realize that it is in fact costing them customers.  I don't want to hear the over arrogant statements about VZW not caring about one customer or the minority customer for that fact.  I think they have ticked off more people than their arrogance will let them visualize.

I know that people are unhappy, but I'm trying to think of this from VZW's point of view. There are certainly a lot of people that are P.O.d, but the main concern if they just came out and said that the phone is delayed due to problems with their network is that people that won't even be using the 4g networks for years will have the idea that the network sucks and that will damage VZW's reputation pretty badly, and I think it a wider range of customers than a couple weeks of a phone delay... P.S. All that said I would also like to know why there is the delay, I can just understand a possible reason why they won't tell us.

I agree with the last two statements....I'm not upset that I don't have the phone in my hands..I'm upset with VZN's arrogance and lack of communication with US...the "valued customer"

 

Like I have said before...I have a crappy BB that I have been wasting 30 a month on for two years because their internet sucks...I would LOVE to know when I'll get a new phone that I can actually use....If they tell me April, I would be fine with that because at least I know now I have to keep babying my piece of crap that VZN talked me into buying in the first place almost 2 years ago

truuu.

 

if they released a 4G phone and it had problems with the network, what does it say about the other devices that are coming out on the same network?

 

so ok theyve had since AT LEAST january 6th to notice that it had problems. why is ti taking so long now? some of us are out of a real phone and waiting.

 

or were waiting lol

This whole ad campaign for Thunderbolt has completely ruined my opinion of Verizon.  Some artificial ploy to build up demand...and really i feel like i've been lied to. I've been a customer for many years and after being told by multiples sales assoc, that i should really wait for this phone...i'm left with no accountability from anyone.  I call and get nothing from customer service on release date; told to sign up for some email notification **bleep**, that tells me nothing.  I went from being excited about a phone to hating both Verizon and HTC.
