    Nobody said today was the day that this turns into a fun discussion thread. Back on topic. Now lets see, a few pages back I said I was taking bets that it won't be on the 17th. Did I get any takers?

    Oh….I should search? OK…...

    Thought about it, want to, but just can't do it. While I am pulling for 3/17 or 3/21, it is just too open-ended right now. There are several good signs recently to help cling to some sort of hope. But if Vegas had been taking bets on this release the whole time and making odds, they would be cleaning up right now with their winnings! Everyone would have been wrong so far, and the next 2 dates on the list could go by the wayside just as easily.

    So he's basically saying it could be delayed, or it might launch soon. Either way he's bound to be right. He seems to have the whole Nostradamus/Cleo & her psychic friends thing down.

    Hahahahah, I forgot all about Miss Cleo's psychic hotline! Where is she when we really need her? Lots of "insiders" or online sources seem to be pulling the "Hey, if I tell them its coming out on a Thursday every week for the next month, I'm bound to be right at some point!"

    Verizon Approves Thunderbolt for Sale Pending HTC Agreement, Rep Tweets March 17th Launch Date

    by Kevin Krause on March 11th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Within the past 24 hours we have heard two new rumored release dates for the HTC Thunderbolt March 17th and March 21st. Depending on how HTC responds to Verizon’s conditional final approval of the device, we may or may not miss those anticipated dates. According to an inside source, Engadget is reporting that Verizon has finally deemed the Thunderbolt ready for primetime, but the actual release of the phone hinges on HTC agreeing to requested fixes and updates to be included in future firmware updates following launch.
    It is pointed out that this process typically takes two to four weeks. If this holds true, we may indeed see the Thunderbolt on March 21st at the earliest, though given the pressure to release the handset we don’t see why things might not move quicker for a release on the 17th. HTC rep Imran Shahid seems to agree with the earlier date based on a recent tweet, though it was retroactively removed after being picked up by media outlets. See the original tweet below.

    He said back in January (the thread in the main forum) that it would release around St. Patrick's day. Of course I said the same thing (late March) in the same thread before him. The few posters that were on the TBolt forum that early told me I was wrong, and that it would release in January. I wonder where those posters are now?

    haha CK, I really don't know whether to believe your story or not but if what you say the tech guy said and what BMX says -->

    I would be inclined to believe its soon.

    1. he said "shh" which would be BMX's "quiet before the storm". Which I haven't seen him post much of anything on AC forums or his twitter meaning he's been quiet as well. None of his recent blogs talk about Tbolt either.

    2. poem

    3. Verizon has had the phone ready. ITS BEEN READY. I have reason to believe this has more hype over Iphail which had years of hype compared to months with this but then again I just passionately want this phone (not at the price of course but it is what it is)

    4. I intrepret "now if its a good storm or a :icon_cussing: storm.. thats remains to be seen.." that to mean, either it'll have great Sales or it could be like the iphail launch date .....

    who plans on pre-ordering online from Verizon when available if you have yet to through BB?
