    So I just ordered the Developer Edition (I'm on T-Mobile) and i hope everything will work out well. Currently have the Nexus 5 google store edition. I went back on the site to review the specs of it but the developer edition isn't displayed anymore. I kinda rushed the order cause I was so excited and I didn't get to see how much internal storage it has, I hope it's the 32gb variant. From what I understand this phone only comes in 16gb and 32gb this time around, last year the Developer Edition was 64gb. I also called in to verify my order and was told that the Unlocked version would ship today/tonight and the Developer Edition would be shipping sometime next week.

    Would you be able to provide the number that you called? I had trouble getting through.

    Checked my order status for the developer edition for T-mobile and saw it said Customer Contact Required. I called 866-416-3059 and have been on hold for 33 mins so far. Was told 30 people ahead of me.

    Is all they wanted is to let you know is wasn't shipping until 4/3? I'm on hold now and if that's all it is, I can hang up.

    No, you have to prove it's you for fraud reasons.

    Is there a difference between developer edition and unlocked?

    After I did the verification, it now says it will ship today and I'll get it Thursday. That would be nice but I'm not counting on it. Last year I ordered the Dev version but ended up canceling when I found out I could get it faster through Tmobile (my carrier at the time). I think I may wait this time, it's only a few more days, I really want the dev edition.

    Same here. Says it will ship today and be delivered tomorrow. I'd lean towards this being wrong though based on the conversation I had with the HTC rep. Oh well, if it does get delivered I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm not messing with letstalk. They did similar stuff last year. Kept changing shipping dates and canceling orders. I just decides to not deal with them at all. I hope everyone's order turns out fine.

    I was curious about that too and it seems (but I can't verify since it's gone), that the DE has CDMA bands and the unlocked/Google version didn't. But that was a quick glance when it first went on sale so I might be remembering it wrong. Don't even remember which CMDA bands I thought I saw.

    Will the developer edition work with T-mobile's 4G and LTE band(s)? Or will the M8 be like the previous version and not always work.

    I asked on Twitter and this is what I received from @HTCUSA: The developer edition will support several LTE bands. More details on the #HTCOneM8 developer edition to come!

    It was the same way last year for the M7 Dev. It showed shipping today. Tomorrow, the dates will change and it'll show shipping that day etc. I would lean towards the 4/3 date (like they told me when I verified my order.)

    The website now says it is not available in my area. What is going on?

    I talked to a HTC customer service rep earlier today, he said the developer edition wasn't supposed to launch until tomorrow but it was posted on accident and a few got through. So I guess we'll see.

    Does anyone know where to purchase it? I have been all over HTC's website and can't find it and i don't want the carrier bloated one. I see where Phill said they are all available the google edition is just to much, and the dev is about 50 bucks cheaper. Any help would be gladly appreciated.

    From what I'm seeing around it is already on backorder, so it got pulled. Supposedly there was an option for the Dev edition under the 3 carrier choices.

    It was on the site where all 3 carriers were listed, was there when I refreshed around 10:30 PST, had it in cart and it would keep timing out. Kept trying until they removed it. I'm assuming based on the people here they had about 4 Dev editions total available. Wasn't able to get one.
