Hi Grimmer 74,

 

Thank you for your your interest in HTC Trophy phone. We respect the desire of wanting to know a release date of this device as well as others who may also inquiry.  This reply is not meant to disappoint you or others but to simply state that we are not able to provide a release date on the HTC Trophy phone. This is because of not wanting to set an expectation that cannot be met. We always try our best to refer our customers to a link at our web site as the official place to check if and when a certain device will become available. The link is: http://search.vzw.com/?market=53520&q=email+alerts&p=null&ss=null&b2eFlag=N.

Just called Verizon and of course they told me that they have nothing on the release of this device but should look at 3rd party sites and blogs.  This is without a doubt proof that This Thursday is the Sweet Spot Day,.. Smiley Happy

This is the answer that I get from Verizon every time that I go to a store and ask about something they don't yet have released.  I swear that they tell their employees they will be fired if they talk about anything that isn't visible on their store shelves.  They often don't even know what the on-line site is offering.  I have had an employee tell me Verizon doesn't have a phone and it is available on-line already, on their own Web site.

 

There are starting to be enough indications that I am almost getting optimistic about the release Thursday.  Still not holding my breath though.  Verizon has handled this whole product and lunch really poorly.  I can understand early on when CDMA was delayed.  But Verizon kept saying that they would be ready to go when Microsoft had the OS ready.   I wonder how long some of those Microsoft employees have been waiting for phones after putting down their money?

Because this isnt that big of a deal. When the iphone came out, i saw it consistently on billboards, on buses, on tv, in print. For a track record that microsoft has, "I think" Verizon just doesnt need windows phone as much as windows phone needs verizon. WP7 just isnt getting the type of hype that has Verizon "iphoning" for it

 

Iphoning - verb - (eye-fone-kneen) - "to have an overwheling excitement for a product, driven by every other person having one"

I saw this around 10:30 am today.  I got into my car and drove straight to my local Worst Buy, hoping that they'd made the same mistake, but alas, I did not get to view the greatness...

I don't want to bring you guys down but, I just went back to look at the specs in the Consumer Guide for Winter 2011 and it's gone. The only official evidence of WP7 coming to VZW.

 

The original link redirects to the Spring/Summer guide which is just iPharts.

I see a pattern developing here, and it doesn't look good.

I can see all of us 6 months from now complaining about when will we ever get the 7.5 update.

 

If they're not going to have an LTE capable WP7 device, I'm running out of reasons to keep waiting. I have a family plan with 2 new phones in the last 6 months. It will cost me a few hundred to terminate the contracts, but I'm paying over $200 a month now, so it's really not much of a deterrent.

No, it's still listed.  They didn't change the booklet.  You have to turn the page.
