Radio Shack memo blames AT&T for a delay in the LG Thrill 4G to August 21st

Radio Shack memo blames AT&T for a delay in the LG Thrill 4G to August 21st
A leaked internal memo from Radio Shack reveals that the 3D enabled LG Thrill 4G has been delayed. The launch date has been pushed back from August 7th to August 21st. As a result, the retailer is extending the pre-order period until August 15th. To reserve the device, you need to purchase a $50 gift card from Radio Shack.

The memo tells reps how they should inform those who have pre-ordered the phone. According to the memo, those who reserved a unit should be called and told that the phone's launch date has been pushed back from August 7th to August 21st because of a launch delay from AT&T. Those who have already purchased a $50 gift card to pre-order the phone will be able to pick it up on the new launch date. Information for store personnel is printed on the memo, telling them to go online and print out new signs to replace the ones with the old launch date.

Will anyone planning on buying the LG Thrill 4G change their mind because of the extra two weeks before launch? Does it make prospective purchasers of the 3D enabled model worried that there might be a major problem with the device?

Lol Radio Shack is always blaming someone. T-Mobile because they are doing so bad financially and now AT&T because their phone is late. Big deal Radio Shack quit crying about everything.

Those are both perfectly reasonable reasons to blame. Who's crying about anything? This isn't Facebook.

No longer sure if I'm gonna get it cause I had an upgrade on august 12, and I've been without a smartphone for nearly a month after over 3 years of owning different ones... it's actually more of a pain then most would think so I honestly may just get the Nexus S now, even if it is pretty outdated.

wow wow wow first AT&T said it will be out for summer for sure then they came out and said it will be out in july for sure no matter what, not to mention there is suppost to be a game compition with the 3D game nova i think on aug 10th so how is that gona happen now, and they had that janes addiction concert on july 25th and people there got the phone to use to film the concert not to mention all the ones they sent to web sits to use and this and that how can all those people get them but they cant sell it? i actuly called AT&T almost 10 times yesterday and made them get me the highest up person in each center when i called to ask about it and i said radio shack is pre selling the THRILL and is showing a release date for it and asked if its right and they searched throught all their stuff and was actuly nice with me and said they have nothing, so i was like well how can they and u dont and its ur phone haha, i was like are they aloud to do that u know and i was like u guys are chargin 99 for it and they are only chargin 79. They said yeah they can sell it less if they want cause they buy tons of them at once and as far as the release date they knew nothing or how they could have a date un less way way up corperate AT&T told them that date since they buy so many at a time and wanted to do a pre sale or it could be they just made it up and all my calls yesterday got them introuble hahaha and AT&T made em change it.
