    Are you saying that because the ad is up or because of some other info?

    I only ask because the ad is in the "Mobile Phone Buyer's Guide - September".

    I figured it out. I couldn't find it either but I was using Firefox with the Ad Block Plus add on installed so it must have blocked it. I pulled the link up in Internet Explorer 9 and there it was on the bottom left.

    The ad says to see store for pricing and availability. I had to go to Best Buy for some other stuff so I figured I'd stop by the mobile section whil I was there. he have printouts of the ad so I grabbed one and went to talk to the guy that was working there. It was quite the interesting exchange:

    Me: Do you guys know yet when the Bionic will be out
    Salesguy: We don't know yet. they pushed it back again. whenever we find out what the release date is we'll have it advertised in our mobile buyers guide.
    Me: (opening my copy of the guide to page 3) Oh, you mean like this?
    Salesguy(complete & utter clueless look on his face): Well, its um, been pushed back. We'll advertise it when it comes out and you can preorder it to make sure you get it
    Me:So I should look for a different advertisement then this advertisement
    Salesguy:Yeah, that's just for our Mobile department.
    Me: (quite shocked and stunned) umm, so the cellphone department is different than the mobile department?
    Salesguy: Yeah, it will be a different advertisement
    Me: Ok, thank you

    I knew the sales reps were kinda clueless about phones, but wow. I mean wow! I didn't even know what to say to the dude.
