HTC ThunderBolt to arrive on March 17, say an HTC rep and a leaked e-mail
According to a leaked e-mail and a tweet posted by an HTC rep (his account was subsequently deleted), the HTC ThunderBolt is coming on March 17.

This is the latest rumoured launch date in a very long list of rumoured launch dates for the HTC ThunderBolt, which is touted to be Verizon's first LTE phone.

As quite a few release dates for this device have been speculated only to turn out to be incorrect, we will treat this info with a pinch of salt or, to put it another way, we'll believe the HTC ThunderBolt is coming when that's officially announced by HTC or Verizon.

I can tell you guys for a FACT that it really is coming the 17th. Probably no pre order because the date is already so close so would just check Thursday morning after 12am for availability.

Whoever is doubting, don't... will be here the 17. phones will be in stock room with rest of normal shipment tomorrow. Verizon the whole time did not give us employees any launch dates until now. its in our equipment manager with the launch date of the 17th.

So, the phone is being released with no changes to the current data plans? No 4G fee?

Thats correct. As of right now, Verizon Wireless does not plan on changing their data pricing at all. Still $29.99 for unlimited data, even if its 4G/3G
