    I got it. Doubt it means anything though. Prob just trying to keep interest up so they don't lose all of us who preordered.

    No. This is "Please stop coming in for pre-order refunds."

    I got mine as well, the only way they would have my email is from my rewards zone card, but I don't recall giving them my card or number. Who knows either way its going to be tough for me to get get the phone at the Verizon Store that day.

    That's strange... I heard it was coming out sometime before the end of Q2 2011.

    Actually in all seriousness, the "official" announcement was Q2.

    I have no idea where this Q1 came from that everyone has been saying the phone had better come out by. If there was another announcement, I haven't seen it. But I've asked several times where Q1 came from and I've never gotten an answer from anyone.

    It was the poorly worded, poorly timed twitter posts and comments from Verizon and the tech community taking the CES comment about Q1 at the earliest. They are trying for Q1, but once you get a worked up group of geeks going its tough to stop them from foaming at the mouth.

    Hopefully next week, hopefully this month I need to get back to my smartphone, stuck on a flip phone for about 7 weeks now.

    Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but the facebook post by HTC leads me to believe we'll see it this month. I'm thinking an official announcement late next week that the phone will be available the 24th or 31st (more likely IMO).

    I know, I'm agreeing with you. I'm trying to figure out where all this Q1 nonsense came from.

    They never made any mention of Q1. That's why the whole Q1 thing makes no sense to me unless they later updated the release dates for all 4 LTE phones.

    Maybe it's the hundreds of "leaked" speculative dates for Feb/ March? :palm:

    Now that the announcement is official, I feel like the next logical direction for this thread is to turn it in to the "who has heard from their local BB about setting up an appointment to get their TB?"

    I haven't heard anything but hopefully they're on the ball with these appointments because I have a pretty full workday thursday.
