    With all the rumor and failed hype, I'm wondering how many of you are seriously considering getting a different phone.

    I know I have been thinking about it really seriously the past day or so and the only thing holding me back is that I want to avoid buyer remorse if the phone comes out a few days after I make the choice.

    **No release date talk or negativity** - The point here is to talk each other out of giving up hope on the Thunderbolt because it's an awesome phone.

    So how are you feeling about the Thunderbolt?

    I decided I am not leaving Verizon so I narrowed my choices down to the Fascinate, Droid X, or Thunderbolt. I will wait as long as it takes, but the Thunderbolt wins in my book. BTW - I already purchased all of the accessories for it, including an extra battery.

    Well, if I can't get the $250 price and the free buyback then I'm sticking with my Dinc. It's only 5 months old. So, I went with "...wait and see".

    Take iPhone out of the equation, because I assume you want an Android phone. What is left on Verizon right now that could even come close to competing with the TB (X, Fascinate, Inc) are all end of life soon. These phones are ok, but you need to wait. It won't be much longer if you can be patient, and nothing comparable will come out before TB (Samsung Stealth and LG Revolution will be after it, but probably before Bionic). Also, I would not consider switching carriers. My family and I have been on VZW since cell phones became commonplace. I'm not going to jump ship just because they don't have the phone I want right now.

    I refuse to get an iPhone, and with the EOL on all the current android phones, I'm stuck waiting! This enV is getting old.. Esp. Since my sister got incredible! And I'm looking forward to the kickstand!

    I'm hearing rumors of the 16th now, which could potentially mean that the TB will miss the EOL line for most of Verizon's Android phones. And the TB is the only phone on Verizon I see worth upgrading to from my Droid 2. So I'm sticking in for the long haul.

    Yea I'm starting to lean to the TB after seeing what Verizon is coming out with (or lack there of).
    My upgrade isnt until the end of June so maybe something comes out by then

    The Incredible 2 is somewhat intriguing though...

    bought the X, loving the phone, for what I am going to use a phone for, I decided it wasn't worth the wait or the $200 difference

    I'm waiting for better; not worth the price. If anything, I'll get the Incredible 2. We'll see how far off the other devices are.

    Thunderbolt at all costs.
    4G LTE and HTC is too a good a match to pass on because of impatience.

    Not on the ledge, since I currently have an Incredible as my work phone.

    That being said, I'm ready to get rid of this POS BB Storm that is currently my personal phone and upgrade to the Thunderbolt

    I'm contemplating either an iPhone 4 or waiting to see what's up with the Incredible 2. All of the speculation behind the TB is really starting to turn me away from it.

    I was sure I would wait for the thunderbolt but now on Dell you can get an x for free with a two year contract. It's hard to say no but after I play with the bolt Ill make the decision.

    I'm still waiting on the TB, but I have been checking craigslist lately for Incredible phones.

    for those wanting a dual core option from HTC on big red, dont expect it till xmas time at the earliest. HTC has never been one to dive headfirst into the newest tech available, but when they do it, they do it right. Sense, 2nd gen snapdragon, more ram, that big and beautiful 4.3" screen in the HTC exclusive 5:9 ratio, the kick stand, two cameras, LTE, 40gb of memory, and great software and update support from both HTC and big red...

    It will definetly be a thunderbolt for me. And lets not forget the chance to lock in LTE all-you-can-eat data at 30 bucks a month. Its a no brainer to me, but each to their own. Dual core is nice, but I have a feeling HTC's dual core offerings will be the omega of all dual core devices. Plus blur is too laggy for myself.
