Good to see you back. Good luck with getting things sorted out at ATT.
I agree. It's still hearsay, until the make an announcement. If they do, and they say a July release date. I will blow a gasket.
I'll buy a SG4, then when the One comes out, I'll return it for a FULL refund even if I have to use a lawyer.
Verizon has also cheated us out of HTC's $100 offer as well.
Thanks Verizon for charging us the most, and letting us miss out on the $100 offer, which I will be seeking as a credit on my account if/when Verizon does get the One.
I played with the ONE at AT&T store and it is lovely. AT&T's 4G LTE was FAST too. I have used both HTC and Motorola on T-Mobile and Verizon in the past (Razr M on VZW now) and if I wasn't in a contract I night have jumped for the ONE on AT&T or maybe T-Mobile again, considering T-Mobile's new plans are better priced for what you get than verizon's Share wallet plans. I'll wait till T-Mo's LTE goes live and then we'll see how AT&T and VZW respond.
Check this from the CTIA news item on the Verizon news page: "Verizon Wireless will also live stream a news conference on the News Center beginning at 11:15 a.m. PT on Wednesday".
With an announcement of HTC One availability by no later than June, then I'll hold out for the One. With a later date or no discussion of the One at all, I'm giving up on that and going with the S4. I've got to stick with Verizon for work reasons, and I'm not ready to wait for the One any longer than that.
I just thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone didn't know this. I've noticed a few people mentioned (on this and the old thread) that they have bought another device and returned it and are Hopi g for the One. You only get to return or exchange a phone once so please make sure the next one you get is what you want. I only point this out because I know many people aren't aware of it, but if you use your upgrade and then exchange or return the phone and get a different one later, that is the phone you will have to keep. Just making sure nobody gets stuck with something that they never intended to keep.
It will come and I will wait for it. I want the super awesome pixel density and the boomsound speakers. Not all the stupid useless bells and whistles that the s4 has e.g. touch free swipe. I currently have the DNA now but the One will most likely replace it. They seem to be having a ton of technical issues anyway with the DNA..and I'm a huge media user. I need more than 16 gig storage space lol. I just went to the htc site and signed up for email newsletters...but the waiting game sometimes is a hard one to play for some...
Yeah the DNA looks plagued, but not sure how widespread those issues are. I can't imagine having a phone that starts ringing with no incoming call! Here is a brief listing of some potential HTC ONE issues:
I have noticed the speaker bezel issue at BestBuy on a couple of floor samples. I would ask the sales rep to get you one that is smooth in all corners. Hopefully it is just an initial startup issue in manufacturing.
Another rumor popped up today here is the link.
Basically some HTC rep went to a sprint store and whipped out a verizon htc one running 4.2.2
Verizon has 21 days till the end of my contract, they better have something good tomorrow!
Well let's hope that it's more than a possibility.
The post on that forum seemed pretty vague and the poster never came back with more info, when questioned.
What sucks is the DNA offer expires before their announcement.
It will be surprising and interesting what ever they announce to be sure.
It just seems pretty impossible to hide things these days, so if V having a special announcement for the One even though they've not done so for any of the other big phones, you'd think it would have been leaked somehow by now.
We all knew V was going to get the S4 and the iphone 5 and the Nokia and the DNA, before they announced it.
