    HTC Thunderbolt In-Stock Feb 21st @ BB

    Taken from Phandroid

    Best Buy Inventory Screen Shows HTC Thunderbolt In-Stock Feb. 21 | Android Phone Fans

    So the HTC Thunderbolt definitely didnít come out February 14th. The date passed and instead we got a handful of new devices from HTC at Mobile World Congress. That leaves the 24th as the strongest contender for the release date of Verizonís first 4G LTE handset, right? Well a new inventory screen grab from Best Buy says we might be able to get our hands on it a few days earlier on February 21st. That is the in-stock date listed, and according do our tipsters over at AndroidForums, unless they are specifically told to do otherwise Best Buy stores will sell the phone as soon as they have it.
    Even if they wait until a proper launch on the 24th to start peddling the phone, at least we can all rest assured knowing that it is less than a week away at this point. I canít wait to check out the speeds this thing pulls in over VZWís LTE network, how about you?

    Should be interesting. Im probably going to get one of these with my 1 year early upgrade so I will be future proof. The deciding factor for me is going to be pricing. If I have to pay more for 4g service then I will wait for something else. If I am grandfathered in under my 3g pricing as it sounds will be how they do it then im going to be all over this bad boy.

    From what i've been seeing, for awhile there will be no price increase for 4g, you don't have to be grandfathered in. Verizon has countless times said that it is going to end up in tiered pricing. So if they do that before their next 4g phone, then there might be alot of people getting the TB just to have unlimited 4g until their contract is up. Will be interesting to see what they do.
    Resistance is futile.

    In stock doesn't necessarily mean release date. They could get the phones in stock the 21st and then release them the 24th as is expected.
    Common Misconception:
    Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
    Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.

    Supposedly if you continue on month-to-month then you continue to be grandfathered in, although I wouldn't bank on that. Technically once the contract ends they have no obligation to you, either.

    I'm just wondering if they do bump prices or cap if I can sneak in the backdoor buying retail and activating. Probably not. For that matter, I wonder if activating any new device in the future will end your grandfather status.

    Personally, I don't expect any changes to LTE data plans this year, not until it is more widespread and not until they have a solid sub base. They have to show an ROI to Wall Street, they are not going to deter people from signing up because the 3G data plans are a better deal.

    The only reason people are speculating about an increase, really, is because Sprint bumped their 4G $10. But what people ignore is that even with the $10 increase, Sprint was still cheaper than VZW! Also, it now appears Sprint is or will be charging the extra $10 for all data plans, and I believe it's the cost of the phones that is driving that.

    So you have Sprint's 4G that is still cheaper than VZW, and AT&T is cheaper (though capped at 2 gigs, which most people use less anyway)...And HSPA+ is really a poor man's 4G, but the speeds are competitive. I just don't see how VZW can bump LTE prices and expect to maintain share, much less grow share.
