    Just a few updates regarding the TB.

    1) Best buy will not be releasing earlier than VZW stores. They will have the same launch date.

    2) Verizon WILL NOT be doing pre-orders on the Thunderbolt. They claim they will have enough in stock and is not worried about running out.

    3) Price will be 249.99 for new 2 year contract. No rebates.

    4) Verizon confirmed that the delay was in fact caused by the iphone 4. They're exact words were, " We had to give it a chance(referring to the iphone 4)".

    5) Data Packages will remain the same until 4G coverage is available everywhere that 3G is. 30/month for unlimited


    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    This information came from the lead supervisor at my local corporate Verizon store. So I'm assuming this info is 100% legit.

    Still nothing as far as a confirmed release date, but when I asked if it was dropping on the 24th, he smiled and said you'll have to come in on that day and see.

    Hope this helps a few people. I'm hoping for a 24th release just like everyone else, and it looks like in 4 days, the wait is over! :icon_ banana:

    Best Buy is $299.99 on upgrade and $749.99 Retail.

    Or at least that's what the weekly ad says (which needs corrected)

    Best Buy has two different ads on their site. One is for phones only where the TB is listed for $300 (page 8). The other weekly ad has it for $250 (page 10).

    edit: the links don't take you to the ads, but you can get to both ads from that page.

    Since the huge thread is now locked... I guess this one will have a couple thousand posts by the 24th...

    Hope the OP is right...

    Page 10 is Sprint EVO Shift for me...

    And when you highlight the Thunderbolt on any ad page, it shows:

    Maybe it's just another mistake on the ad? BB seems to not care to fix it.

    You are correct! Seen it with my own two eyes. $249.99 +tax is the correct price though, as you stated.

    Main thread is open, but being watched. This one will be too.

    Everyone needs to relax and remain civil.
