    Default Release at Verizon - It's Official

    Okay guys, this one is official. I just spoke with a good buddy of mine who works as a sales rep in a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Verizon branch. Now although he always tells me he does not have any insider information on unreleased news, he did finally let me know that the Thunderbolt will officially be launching in VERIZON stores on the 24th. The previous rumors of this date are definitely true. This may come as a good thing for some (not me, after that VZ tweet this morning), or a bad thing for others (I want it on the 14th at Best Buy!). Anyway, take it however you please. We will all finally have our phones before March!

    Might want to change your title. Unless it's in writing, it's not "Official".

    welcome to android central.
    friends at work just started training for the iphone and haven't mentioned any other device yet so until they go through their training seminars it may be a bit.

    I will be happy to get it on the 24th and even happier to get it on the 14th.

    Wait, speaking of VZ sources, didn't one of them tell us the iPhone was a 4G phone?

    Lots of people have "friends at Verizon stores" who give them information like this. They also conflict. There's no reason to believe one over the other.

    Not trying to do anything but give some information I heard from the company itself. No need to bash my comments as they are just here to inform anyone who is interested in this phone. If you don't agree then go to the next thread.

    My dog stays with a sitter while I work, and one of the other dogs there belongs to an exec with Verizon. Apparently the exec talks in his sleep and his dog overheard that the release was going to be the 15th. His dog passed it on to my dog and my dog told me, because my dog knows I want this phone.

    We all know dogs never lie, so the OFFICIAL release date will be the 15th!

    But what did Punxsutawney Phil say? Do we need to wait 6 more weeks before it'll be out?

    I mean your trying to give info which is cool, but based on the title, you trying to convince us it's 100% truth. Lots of posters have spoke with reps who claim it will be out on the 14th, BB has it in their systems as the 14th, there are two sources claiming it will be out on the 24th, blackmanx and you. Thank you for the tip but the reason you are getting so much flack is because what you heard is no better than anything else anyone has said. At least other posters have posted their chat transcripts. Many of us are fully believing it will be out on the 14th, unless you friend has some hard tip that you can prove, that won't change. Anyways the main topic as of now is 4g pricing anyways, that seems to be the priority around here as of late.

    Yea bgr.com (boy genius report) is also reporting from Verizon manager the
    there is a big event on Feb 24th for the HTC Thunderbolt release date. I know
    when the Droid x was release on a Thur. The iPhone is releasing on a Thur,
    and Feb 24th is a Thurs also!! Feb the 14th is a Mon so it is highly possible that we will
    see the TB on 24 of Feb!! But anyway check out

    I was always a bit suspicious about the 14th cause of it being a Monday. Thursday makes much more sense regarding shipping / delivery from the wherehouses to the brick & mortar stores. The 24th also allows enough time for the initial rush of iPhone customers to VZW stores to die down a bit. I'm sure we'll hear the official date from VZW by end of next week at latest.
