Samsung Rogue missing from Verizon's August rebate form

Samsung Rogue missing from Verizon's August rebate form
Verizon's new Rebate Form is out and lists the rebate amounts for purchases from August 2nd through September 7th. Missing from the list is the Samsung Rogue U960, which is an update to the Glyde, and was rumored to be released on August 15th. Just because it isn't on the current August form doesn't mean it won't be out on the 15th, as Verizon could always "update" the form later (we've seen this happen in the past).  Also, the rebate amounts on the LG enV Touch, Versa, Dare, and Motorola Krave have changed to $100. But more interesting than that is the Verizon site has the Versa listed for $179 (after $100 rebate), which is more expensive than the enV Touch and most other Smartphones at $99.

Good news! Samsung Rogue is in Verizons system and if you find a kind sales rep they can order it for you and you will get it by the end of the week

I take it back, they are in the system but not priced accurately.

Does that mean that you know what the actual pricing is supposed to be? Can you share? Specifically, the 2-year contract price.

Hi, This is my first post. I called Verizon today, August 12th and also Samsung and neither of them have knowledge of the Rogue being released on Sun. Has it been pushed back or is it hush, hush. Any replies are appreciated, I am waiting to hear before I make a choice. Thanks!!!

Hey VZWProductTestr! I too am wondering, has the release date for the rogue been confirmed as August 15th? I am eligible for my upgrade on the 15th and was planning on getting the alias2 until I heard about the rogue. It would be perfect timing if the rogue is available for purchase on the 15th. If it ends up being released at a later date, I will wait to upgrade. Also, do you have any information on pricing for this phone?

There is no way this thing is coming out on the 15th if no Verizon employees know about it. I've been to two different Verizon stores in the past two days and neither store manager had heard anything about this thing coming on August 15, and both of them checked their computers just to be sure. Apparently it may be out on the 23rd now along with the Omnia 2.

Verizon employees arnt going to tell you when a phone is coming out. They play dumb like they have never heard of it. I went into a store 2 days ago and asked the rep in regards to the samsung rogue. Bluntly to my face he said i have never heard of that phone. But 2 months ago i asked another rep and he said they phone should be out maybe in August. So now that phonearena has an appr. timeline for the 15th it may be possible for that date. Just dont believe what every rep tells you its part of there internal structure and guidelines. Even though it pisses us off that they play dumb. but if you google best buy and the omnia pro they are releasing it in the store for them on the 23rd and the samsung rogue is on this list and aug 23rd on it too. But wouldnt look too much into it other phones are on this list that have aug 23rd date that are already for sale online lol.

If all 5 employees I spoke to were playing dumb then they were some of the best actors I have ever seen in my life. No, they genuinely had no idea whether it was coming out on the 15th and one of them, after checking his computer multiple times and not finding anything about it, told me to let him know if I heard anything about the release date. The employee asked me, the customer, for info about the phone. He wasn't pretending, and furthermore what possible reason could all 5 of them have to go to such extreme lengths to lie about a phone that's only coming out in a few days? It's not like it's some gigantic secretive new iPhone release. Also I don't see any of the Samsung phones on that list for sale on the VZW store already, which ones are you talking about?

also if you go to yahoo and search samsung rogue, suprisingly, the first search item is from verizon wireless with the Samsung Rogue, however, if you click on the site, it says that the item has been "moved"? hmmm, mysterious much?

Im not saying any of the ones you talk to, but when i call and get information they say to me ive never heard of that phone. Im thinking how do you not no what upcoming phones are going to be for sale on your site in the next couple of months. And in the store they did the exact same thing in the past week. Hmmm i dont know what phone that is. Then another store rep said sometime in august it should be out this was 30 days from before in july. So not saying who you spoke to but out of the 4 people from phone to stores they say this to me. When i got the env touch the day before the release date which was accurate the phone reps where telling me not sure when the phone is supposed to be released. so thats where i have come up with they are playing dumb and cant give the information out. My experience has been the same for every phone ive been interested in with there knowledge of phones or release dates. Now its the 15th and no phone.

HI, If you google the Rogue now, it comes up under Verizon Wireless, but when you click on it it wont give you any information. At least we know it is coming. I think I will wait. Will check the post later to see if you guys find out anything further. Thanks!
