Since I'm not on Sprint and it's the first LTE device on Verizon, it seems it's a phone I want.

This is just ridiculous and frustrating. I understand you want to maximize the Fruit sales, but either way you are locking people up for 2 years so just let us know what's coming.

They were incorrect the Phone will not be released on a Saturday. I'm hearing the 24th

I don't know if this is smart Verizon especially with AT&T dropping the Atrix 4G on the 22nd and T-Mobile dropping the Samsung Galazy S II on the 33rd... There are a lot of people looking to sign new contracts and I for one am not carrier loyal right now just want a really good phone before the month ends...

in case you were sonfused there arent 33 days in any month of the year much less februrary which is the shortest of them all ..... you are either 6yrs old or a tard

LoL. You're so right... "33rd"??
38. Napoleon (Posts: 60; Member since: 09 Dec 2010)
AND in case you didn't know, I'm not "sonfused" and February doesn't have 3 r's in it either lmbo... But just like you I made a typo and hit the number 3 by mistake twice...

This is getting ridiculous, annoying and frustrating. I've been a VZW customer since my first cell phone and this is just lousy 'customer service'. What is the big deal with announcing a date? This would put the rumors to rest and allow us Tbolt geeks to plan out our strategy. The 26th, a Saturday, makes no sense whatsoever. The 24th I can see. The 21st - a holiday? Stupid. I've been waiting since my last contract ended last November for this....and my patience is waning.

Perwilly, agree with you completely. Just announce the date already. Verizon is tempting me to change carriers.
25. glocksparg17 (Posts: 9; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
its not bad customer service because you are still with verizon and are still waiting for the phone no matter what
39. Napoleon (Posts: 60; Member since: 09 Dec 2010)
Bottom line, I just wish there was an official date released for this phone already and I can't understand why phones just introduced this year vs. Thunderbolt which was talked about since August still has not been released...

wahhhhhh claiming to leave a carrier because they haven't announced a release date for a phone? You're pathetic.

lol bad customer service...HTC makes the phone you jackwagon! they coincide together...Verizon can't just make an announcement without having an OK from the manufacturer who actually makes the phone. ppl don't exercise common sense...

@Johnabis --- This WILL NOT be just another EVO ...look into the specs before you type.
11. ATTCallCenter (unregistered)
HTC doesn't even make the EVO your so dumb!
12. firstname.lastname@example.org (unregistered)
Uh, they actually do smart-one.
19. Jersey (unregistered)
Hence why I ditched AT&T some time ago.
Lack of knowledge, shitty customer service, and the only device that existed until very recently was the iPhone...
Literally...don't quit your day job.

I wonder how many verizon reps and customers will presume the iphone4 is a 4G-LTE-capable phone? I know a lot of AT&T customers who make that mistake, thinking their iPhone 4 will work on the 4G network... :P
23. vzwemp1 (unregistered)
Here at Verizon we actually train our reps well enough on the phone to know its 4th generation
18. Jersey (unregistered)
It's a phone.
A few days won't hurt you.
With the amount of whinning, you all should be iPhone users soon at this rate.
