    They better hurry or everyone is just going to wait for the coming of a certain far more up to date, more feature packed phone.

    Will update frequently as the hours/days pass by until we receive an official announcement (from Verizon).

    Where'd u get March 6th? If it were pushed all the way into March, it would be the 3rd or 10th. Verizon would never release a phone on a Sunday.

    In terms of March being a release date I have seen people posting around saying March 6th. I haven't seen anyone post any other March day (literal day), so I threw in March 6th.

    Personally I believe it will come out the 24th, with high hopes of a 17th release. I agree with you Verizon wouldn't release on a Sunday (I didn't look up March 6th on the calendar when posting).

    **Updated original post.

    I am in agreement with the majority and the 24th seems like the date, but would be more then happy to be wrong and see it show earlier :)

    I personally think Best Buy will release on the 14th as planned (and that is what they are saying here in Tucson) BUT Verizon will not release until the 24th.

    That is my thinking.

    I had read somewhere that Best Buy only had 'Retail Exclusive' rights to it. Meaning if it does come out on the 14th, you wouldn't be able to get it at Wal-mart or places likes that, but Verizon would still sell it. That would make more sense than them turning away customers at Verizon stores and making them go to best buy.

    But then maybe I'm just hoping thats the case so I can order it online as soon as it's available. :)

    There is one thing about the BB on the 14th VZW on the 24th scenario that makes sense to me and that is that VZW might want their stores to focus on iPhails and let BB take care of the TBs. Unlikely but not completely impossible.

    Why do you need to keep logging updates? People can just look at the poll results...

    Because it's interesting to see how the vote distribution changes as the hours/days go by leading up to an announcement from Verizon.

    If the 14th rolls by with no announcement, it'll be interesting to see what everyone after the 14th starts voting for.

    I bear good news:) today I decided to make some rounds to five vzw stores and asked to talk to their managers, every manager, wothout hesitation and with firm belief when asked when theyy would get the tb, stated sometime within the next week:) these vzw stores are in close proximity with each other so no I'm not obsessed, just willing to get some answers from the field...pre ordered the tb on bb on the first morning (the 6th), and unfortunately do not have any info stating the release date of the phone on bb

    best buy stores will have the phones that were pre-ordered (and maybe a few others) available next week (i think it will be on the 17th).
