    Default The Dreaded Question: Are you getting the Thunderbolt?

    There have been leaks about the release date and best buy ads about the price.
    It has been downed because of the lack of dual core.
    Yet it still manages to have a very, very large fan base.

    But are you actually getting it?

    Vote on the poll and chime in down below!

    add a polling answer for
    "depending on LTE pricing"
    and you've got my response

    but most likely, yes

    Yup. Paying full retail which blows but I don't want contracts.

    As long as there is a 1 year contract. I fear this could be a 2 year only after seeing the iPhone has a 2 year only.

    Yes! VZW moved my NE2 to Feb 24th so I will be getting this at a store around release date!

    I like keeping my phones around 2 years, so I'm going for that contract.

    BlackBerry was good for a while.

    I wish I could upgrade to it but I had to vote no, my upgrade date is in August. I'll be forced to wait for newer handsets

    I'll be getting it on a 1-yr contract, if ... Verizon doesn't price it at $320 or more. Put it at $269 for 1-yr ($199 for 2-yr) and I'm buying. If not, I'm waiting.

    Yes! Can't freaking wait to upgrade to this from my Blackberry Tour...

    I'm at the point where I get the loading second hand every minute for 10+ seconds at a time, a reset at least every day, and I'm still stuck on 2G Edge w/o Wifi!

    Hurry up verizon

    Really? I wasn't aware of this. That's going to *suck* if VZW doesn't offer this phone on a 1 year contract. If you're into having closest to the latest mobile advancements, 2 years (20 months) is just way too long.

    The network quality & 1 year (10 months) contract options are what I *love* about VZW. I'd have no problem paying $349 for this phone on a 1 year. I'm definitely not paying $749 full price though; that's a joke! $599 MSRP needs to remain the upper limit of high end mobile pricing.

    Crossing my fingers, as I need to buy 2 of 'em!

    EDIT: Last thought: I could totally see Apple being little b1tches and forcing VZW contract options to only allow 2 years.

    FWIW: Rumored 1 year pricing is somewhere between $319 - $349.

    Why would you post in the HTC Thunderbolt forum if you're not planning on / can't get one?

    He stated he *IS* getting one... pending pricing. Since we don't have confirmed 1 year pricing on the TBolt, it's not really cool to knock the person if pricing goes higher than past top end phones.

    I too am waiting for Verizon to officially state their terms for handset LTE. Hoping for the same deal as the iPhone buyers got.

    I guess I dont see everyones issue with data plain pricing. I look at it this way, the price point for the phone was up in the air now we have seen the add saying $249 on a 2yr. Thats what we thought all along, well we have been seeing that they are not going to be charging anything more for 4G (at least at first) everywhere, so why believe anything else... now if I could say that about the date I would be happy... that said come 24th I am staking out BB's front door pre-order in hand!!!!

    A simple Hell Yeah. My deposit was paid, i made sure the balance was locked away, I am ready. I have to run errands this weekend and I will see if the local BB is going to offer it up on Sunday/Monday or not.

    I will say if Verizon screws this up and drags it so that the Bionic and the TB launch together then we have a problem.
