    Well here we are...February 14th, 2011, and still no Thunderbolt. I'm almost certain the delay is being caused by the iphone 4. Verizon is going to release the HTC TB on February 24th(I think). You ask why this date??? It's becoming very obvious, at least in my opinion. This later release date will be exactly 14 days after the iphone 4 has been released on Verizon's network. They don't want a bunch of people coming in and trading in their iphone's for the TB. Verizon's 14 day return policy will once again screw a bunch of people out of switching to a phone they really want. Truth is, a lot of the people who bought the iphone on launch date will see a friend with this way cool TB, that is way slicker than their iphone, and wish they could have it. But thanks to Verizon's return policy, they will be paying retail if they want it that bad. Sad, but true. All about the money nowadayzzzz

    Way to put the customer first, Verizon :clap:

    In what situation would someone be incapable of waiting 14 days?

    Changed to 14 not too long ago :icon_evil:

    My guess is that because of how big the iphone coming to Verizon was, it clouded a lot of people judgment to take a look at upcoming phones that were to be released. I mean, it's very safe to say the iphone was advertised like crazy, all the way up to it's release date, and still going. I have not seen one commercial on the TB. Get what I'm saying :D

    Or the rumors about Steve Jobs paying Verizon off could be true lol


    Edit: Or I could be wrong about assuming a bunch of people picked up the iphone

    FAIL lmao

    True, but I think the point I'm trying to get at is millions of people picked up the iphone on launch day, and those people will fall just short as far as time goes to trade it for the TB.

    Then why did they get the iphone?

    I can't see it taking any more than a few days at most to see if the device is a keeper.

    As I had said in a previous reply, Most of the people I know didn't have any clue about the TB until I told them about it. But rest assured, they all knew the iphone was there, and 2 of them pulled new iphones out of their front pockets lol I'm just guessing that their will be a few unhappy campers when they realize they should have held off on the iphone and kept their options opened :)

    As with any business, you want to maximize profits for EVERYTHING you sell. Giving the iphone and the Thunderbolt their due time in the spotlight is smart business. IMO that's all they are doing.

    Waiting until the 24th isn't going to change my life. But what it WILL do is make the TB that much more popular as it won't be in the shadow of the iphone.

    It sucks waiting for the thunderbolt but I can't blame Verizon. It makes perfect business sense to wait until the 24th. If I run Verizon I probably would do the same thing.

    I don't see the delay in releasing the TB as related to iPhone returns.... people who bought the iPhone wanted the iPhone... if they didn't like it they'd have returned anyway... 1 new Android device isn't going to reinvent the wheel for Android.

    It's all about profits.... VZW is gonna sell the iPhone as hard as they can for as long as they can before they release the TB (which will be their first 4G device). To me I see it all as a dollar issue, not as much an issue of iOS v. Android as it's been made out to be.

    The way you guys carry on about the TB it's almost like you're afraid iPhone will show it up. And lets be honest, like the thread says when the iPhone 5 hits it probably will. But not to worry, I'm sure Android phones will be able to hold their own against that too.
