February 10, 2011

As you may already know, the release date for the HTC ThunderBolt that's been spreading around the streets like a fine butter has last been reported as February 24th, 2011. Now, our good pal Jonathan S Geller of Boy Genius Report (BGR) has also confirmed that date, so we can basically etch that in stone. BGR never lies, ever. Their source has locked down the release date for the HTC ThunderBolt to February 24th, and that's both at Best Buy and Verizon Wireless.

If you'd like to know more about the HTC ThunderBolt, the sweetest phone to crash down from the heavens and fall upon Verizon like a storm, just hit the [HTC THUNDERBOLT] portal and you'll be brought to a magical rainstorm of information on the phone the likes of which have never before been seen.

    I just talked to Best Buy where I pre-ordered my HTC Thunderbolt and as of 7:22 PM Feb. 10, they say the release date is Valentines day, Feb 14. Those nice people said they would even bring it to the hospital if I have a nervous breakdown over this mess.

    • Bill

      Me again from the hospital this time, it is off again. After BGR.com I called two stores in Orange county california and was told they just got notice the 14th was off with no new date. Fraudlent inducement and deceptive trade practices!!!!

      • Jack

        oh cry about it bill. So stupid. You never got the wrong info before? Just because its printed in a BB ad you think its holy script. deceptive trade practices my ass. If you really believe everything you read then you deserve to be taken advantage of. But yet you have a voice and you want other people to hear your pathetic opinion, so where do you turn, the BGR. You so dumb, for real.

      • KrisC

        The release date for the HTC Thunderbolt is the 24th. I just saw my Verizon dealer (who btw is doing a giveaway of one tomorrow) and he confirmed the release date. I have seen it, held, it, it is beautiful!

        The sales rep at the verizon store by mainplace mall said it’s coming out on the 17th.

      • Mike_is_Mike

        Just take your meds Bill and relax – maybe YOUR release date will coincide with the Thunderbolts.

  • Howie

    I called 3 different best buys around my house before pre-ordering and they all said that they were getting theirs February 17th. I’m not saying I’m right, but that’s what each of them told me, separately. When I asked my local Verizon wireless store they said that they did not know…hm…?

  • Dorgonio

    Verizon and HTC just need to announce a release date. I’m going crazy waiting for this thing.

    • hboyer90

      omg me too, I’m up for my last early upgrade (as they are doing away with it) and I’ve been trying to hold out for 4g. I just want to know how much longer. I would pre-order at best buy but you can’t use your early upgrade there, only at verizon stores. Ahh!

      • Guest

        You can use your early upgrade at any authorized retailer. Just called to double confirm at Best Buy and they stated you can use your early upgrade!

      • Nealjm01

        I went into BB the other day and he said he couldnt do the early upgrade that i had to go to the Verizon wireless store

        If you have the family plan and are doing the yearly update option then yes you can only do it at a Verizon store but they charge you an extra $50 on top of what the phone is selling for. I just went through that issue. Otherwise if your 2 years are up you should be able to upgrade anwhere.

  • James

    “so we can basically etch that in stone. BGR never lies, ever. Their source has locked down the release date for the HTC ThunderBolt to February 24th”

    Ha! I too talk to Best Buy today in person TODAY. They told me it was still the 14th. One guy even got on the phone with their head Verizon representative, and confirmed it was going to be the 14th. I’d like to know exactly how their “head source” got his information….

    • Moefinelli

      I called BB and they didnt have any in and they said the 24th is the date… Maybe longer..

      • Mike_is_Mike

        Looks like the “maybe longer” is the correct date.

      • Mike_is_Mike

    Yep, just got off of the phone with BestBuy and they have the Thunderbolt release date as Feb 14th…they also confirmed that Verizon will release the phone on the 14th as well.

    • Mike_is_Mike

      Did they give you a year? 2012 perhaps?

    BBY Honolulu confirms 14 Feb. Also, they informed that If I called on the night of the 13th and they have them in stock they would be able to inform me of that.

    • Bill

      Two BB’s in California, Mission Viejo and Irving said they were told by management tonight the 14th is off with no future date, refunds of deposits are available, just drive an hour round trip to get it like when I gave it to them.

      • LD5408

        Or.. you could keep your deposit there and just get it the day it comes out? arent you still going to try to get this phone anyways?

  • ROn

    I am a Verizon cust service rep, and we have not heard anything regarding this phone. As far as the 14th, I would not rely on this date. I guarantee you if it was coming out in 4 days we would know about it. The 24th sounds more likely, but until verizon officially announces it, I wouldnt count on anything. I am very excited about this phone also, which is why I am on here, and I’ve been trying to get some solid answers since I heard about it.

    • Bill

      If you are a verizon rep, why do you say if it was coming out in 4 days you would know about it then you are out here looking to find out from sources other than your employer? I got it from the Best Buy horses mouth when I pre-purchased my Thunderbolt…. fraudlent incement if you ask me as well as deceptive trade practices. I hope a suit is coming for BB and Verzon, I will join.

      • Jrbd99

        Bill, are you a complete moron? Don’t answer that. We already know. The reason ROn is here looking for info is because he HASN’T heard anything from his employer, which is why he is doubting the Feb. 14th date. Get it? Probably not, but it was worth a try.

      • http://twitter.com/fedorade juan montoya

        Seriously man. I deal with people like that guy all the time. Just look at it as the release date is the 24th. If you happen to get it earlier, then FANTASTIC. Even then, Verizon has no release date. They haven’t stated anything. You have no one to blame for spending your money than yourself.

      • LD5408

        Seriously dude. you’re getting your phone the day it comes out if you pre ordered it from Best Buy. They never had a date, if someone told you it was the 14th its bc that was the rumored date… but if you went to verizon, you clearly saw there was no official release date. If you preordered thinkin that it would for sure come out on the 14th, even after verizon clearly said, we dont have a release date, then you’re an idiot.
        In any case, the 14th or 24th, whenever it comes out, you’ll get your stupid phone. How is it fradulent incentment if you are getting the phone the first day it comes out? aren’t you getting exactly what you paid for?
        People like you make me MAD.

      • voiceofreason

        I second that. It’s amazaing what whiney babies our culture has produced. We don’t get what we want the second we want it we and we cry foul or clog up our legal system with a bunch of BS lawsuits. Verizon or BB have never once promised any dates, only these blogs have done that. Grow up people, this is a sign of how our nation’s culture has degraded. God help us all. This looks like a awesome phone, just be thankful we even have such amazing devices that enrich our lives.

        This is my first time on this website and i can already tell this bill guy is a HUGE BABY! leave it alone man. I would like to see you try to file a suit against BB or Verizon. they would both laugh while taking turns taking craps on it

      • someone laughing @ BILL

        dude, quit crying already. hopefully you’ve gone on vacation by now and can quit whining. i bet you don’t have a woman cos you are too cry-baby-ish, not saying you’re are one, but very close to one. geez, how old are you my brother?

    will somebody please figure this out i want this device

  • Alex

    BGR do me a favor, don’t come to this website and post shit you don’t knwo about you stupid idiot!! get the fuck out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • Bill

    I guess since Verizon Rules the Air, they don’t care that Best Buy Fraudently induced people to pre-purchase the Thunderbolt. What they did probably wasn’t fraudent inducement either…. Call most Best Buy’s and they will still pre-sell for Feb. 14th. I would certainly join a law suit against both.

    • Jrbd99

      A lawsuit? And your monetary damages are what, exactly?

      • Bill

        The same as any class action on behalf of “wronged consumers”. They have practiced Deceptive Sales practices when someone at BB knew as they took everyones money that it wouldn’t happen on Feb. 14th. I have heard Verizon didn’t want all of their pre-sold 3G IPhones to be able to return them within the 14 day return policy.

      • LD5408

        WHY oh WHY would they give wrongful information on purpose? so that idiots like you can go yell at BB employees? TRUST me.. they try to avoid getting people like you mad at all costs, bc of all the raucous you are making. VERIZON decided to postpone the release date.. BB had nothing to do with it.. cuz.. guess what.. the cell phone company is VERIZON. they sold preorders so ppl that really wanted the phone could get it on the day it came out… TRYIN to make ppl happy… n then theres idiots like you who have nothing BETTER to do with their lives than sit at a comp n complain and whine ALL FREAKIN DAY.
        Seriously, STOP.

        Thanks.

      • Bill

        I note you are on there reading it, join the idiots. I was going on vacation next week and wanted to take it with me. As for yelling at BB employees, never, maybe Verizon because they were the ones who pulled the plug after letting this charade go on as it did. Having said all that, there were blogs a week ago saying the 14th would not happen, so BB must have known as they took my pre-order money.

      • Robin

        BB too k MY PREORDER MONE TOO…. On top of that…. the girl showed me ON BB Inventory that the relase date was FEB 14th! I seen if for my own eyes. Now she messed up by showing it to me! And NOW…. BB says Feb 24th! It’s a sad thing when it’s ALL about the money and not Customer satisfaction! I have alot of APPLE products… but this iphone thru Verizon is making me sick! AND so is all the HYPE about the iphone 4!

      • ld5408

        Seriously.. ten extra days. all the hype about the new verizon phones is created by ppl like you and me who spend time on these forums anxiously awaiting these phones. If you are tired of all the hype…. then.. uh… just WAIT n stop complaining. Thanks. And bb will release it when Verizon releases it. If Verizon changed hteir mind, then bb had to postpone… they are not in control of the release date. See my previous response to bill, it applies to you too.

        authorized resellers are in control of their own inventory, pricing, equipment subsidy, etc. they have individual buyers assigned to the accounts that handle the acquisition of devices. they do not purchase the devices from verizon. verizon does not make cellphones. just because you decided to be impatient and order something prior to official release information doesn’t mean that a company has fraudulent practices; it just means you’re an unwise consumer. take responsibility for your actions and quit being so self-entitled.

      • Jon

        I checked out the Verizon iphones on display yesterday and they seemed really good. It made me debate about waiting for the thunderbolt. What threw me off the droids was that they lag a lot while the iphone was quick, user friendly, and has a nicer interface. That was for the Droid X and the Droid 2. Guess when the Thunderbolt comes out, I will be making my decision that point. I’m surprised to be seeing so many negative reviews on Verizon’s iphone.

      • Mike_is_Mike

        HA! Ha! SUCKERS!!!!! You still have your BB gift card that can be used on ANYTHING in the BB store – it never was a “pre-order.”

      • ld5408

        Oh I am definitely one of those ppl looking at forums constantly trying to get a clue of when it is coming out.. and i can understand anxiously awaiting this phone and wanting it now n not having to wait an extra 10 days.. I have had an upgrade for a couple of months now and have been waiting for the new phones to come out.
        BB employees said the 14th bc, just like a pic that was circling the web showed, their inventory program stated that the phone would be available on the 14th. I believe that was the original date, and then Verizon changed their mind and decided to postpone it so that customers that bought the iPhone would be past the return policy and thus would not be able to switch to the thunderbolt. BC lets be honest, the thunderbolt will outperform the iphone incredibly.
        BB employees cant rely on forums written by the public that said the thudnerbolt wouldnt be released until the 24th.., if their inventory said the 14th, thats the info they gave out.
        But yes, i agree, verizon should have taken the return policy of the iphone into account when deciding when to release the thudnerbolt, and should not have left us in the dark about the release date… But the fact that they did caused all this forums to form, made thousands of people grow anxious about the phone and now, the number of people wanting to get this phone is very big.
        Its all marketing strategy, and, as consumers… we kinda just have to deal with it… its what we get for wanting the newest technology. But complaining and threatening to sue for fradulent inducement wont get you the phone sooner, wont get you your money back, wont get you a discount. All you are doing is creating more drama..

      • spon

        you sir are a retard. the return policy at best buy is 30 days. the 14 day policy is with verizon and the service. you have 14 days to stop your service and reverse your upgrade. get your information straight before talking.

  • Laura

    I had called Verizon to activate my iPhone (which I purchased before I heard about the Thunderbolt) and I was hoping the rumored date of 2/14 was true so I could test that one, and if I didnt want to keep the iPhone – return it….

    The Verizon Rep stated that there would be not 2/14 release of the phone, and that they “hope” to be able to announce a release by the end of Feb…..their originally scheduled release date. I believe the 24th will be closer to the actual release unfortunately.

    I think the confusing part here is ‘available for purchase’. Pre-orders can be accepted up to a date and then stopped. Everyone with a pre-order can then get their phone early as expected. In the meantime they can stock their stores and open in-store sales the same day. Just look at what they did with the i*hone, People who pre-ordered physically got them a full week ahead of the ‘release date’…I’d say the 24th was always the release date and the pre-order from BB is the ‘sooner’ part mentioned by VZW which I would suspect is anywhere from the 14th-17th.

    • Soundman00

      I agree it is all business. Keep people from returning an expensive phone for the newest best phone out. I bought the iphone yesterday and could not believe how slow it was compared to my wifes’s incredible. My wife could download two apps to my one app about four times faster. I wonder if they built too many iphones too quickly and used shoddy parts or procedures to meet deadlines. My friends who have iphone 3′s and 4′s will run rings around my new iphone 4. I’m taking mine back and waiting for the thunderbolt.

  • Maria

    Just called best buy, (june 10th) they said it should be here next part of next week.

    • Maria

      FIRST PART of next week sorry.

    • OG

      June 10th? ……….Are you okay?

  • DRK

    I just pre-ordered my thunderbolt yesterday…it costs 249 and I have an appointment to pick it up Monday the 14th.

      Did you “pre-order” it from the back of a van in a dark ally? LIER!!

      I’ll sell you a “pre-order” Thunderbolt for only $199 and no contract – meet me behind BB at 2AM, I only take cash.

  • Sgiggs

    Where did you preorder it from?

    • Steveo

      best Buy in the store you have to put $ 50.00 deposit but i cant wait i am a iphone user and i am switching to the thunderbolt that thunderbolt name sucks they could of came up with a better name

      • Mike_is_Mike

        There never was a pre-order. All you got was a $50 BB gift card. And BB’s had your money now for a MONTH – SUCKER!!!

  • H. Polo

    I just called BB and they said the release date may be 2/28/2011. Hmm, guess that iPhone 4 I purchased last night is going back this weekend before I throw it off a 10 story building. I will activate my old XV-6900 untill they release the Thunderbolt.

    • Mike_is_Mike

      Better call them again, today is 3/13 – still no Thunderbolt release date in sight. :-D

  • Guest

    Does anyone know how much this phone is going to be? I was trying to get the info from BB’s online chat customer service and when I pushed for info she just stopped responding to me. I tried to get a response three more times and she just signed off without another comment 9 minutes after my initial question.

  • Presmom1

    What’s the Verizon price? Can’t imagine that they would price it more than the iphone at 199.00.

    • Steveo

      i found this link that says the phone with be $749.00 what come on

      http://www.examiner.com/android-in-national/htc-thunderbolt-release-date-and-price

      • Steveo

        opps i should of read the rest of the link 249 with a new contract

      • Logic

        It’s $249 with contract, but it’s not fair to compare the 40 gb Thunderbolt to the 16 gb iPhone. The 32 gb iPhone is $299, thats $50 more for less storage, less RAM, slower speed, smaller screen, no 4g, no adobe flash support, less megapixels, no turn by turn navigation, no removable battery or sd card support, and having to deal with apple if you have a problem. The iPhone is a $100 phone with a $200 apple emblem etched on the back.

      • TDH

        Plus, the Thunderbolt will have a 1 GB dual core processor.

      • Allodile

        No. It wont. HTC says it will only have a single core processor.

  • Atl3630

    I can’t imagine why Verizon is allowing this release-date debacle to continue. This is their first 4G phone and its debut should be a celebration for their brand and their customers. Instead they are allowing the opportunity to sour, not to mention encouraging the “rumors” with their twitter comment and then complete silence on the matter. Unless this phone is released on the 14th, you can only come to a few conclusions about Verizon, and they are all negative – incompetent, indecisive, unorganized, and out of touch with their customers. Verizon likes to “underpromise and over-deliver.” Right now it seems that they over-promised on this phone and are underdelivering on it’s release. To avoid all this mess they should just tell people when the phone will come out. Simple as that. But they either won’t – or they can’t. And that isn’t good for them at all.

    • Steveo

      I was at the verizon store today comparing my iphone 3g to the android phones and the sales guy gave me a brochure showing the HTC thunderbolt and said you might want to wait we have this coming in about 2 months. he is a moron because it will be out next week. In the same sentence he told me that he wants the iphone 4 but told me to wait for the thunderbolt. WOW he is a real salesman NOT

  • Phatnesser74

    its going to cost more than the 199.99 iphone4…i pre-ordered mine at best buy for 50 dollars towards the phone and they have the thunderbolt releasing feb. 24 at a cost of 249.99…verizon has the phone at 349.99 with a 100 dollar mail in rebate…best buy is just selling it at 249 without the rebate…quicker and save money with best buy…you guys can debate all you want about the release date…but we all know for sure its coming out this month so WHATS THE BIG DEAL? just wait little kids. =?

    • TDH

      VZW has removed all mail in rebates for phones over $150.00 (that’s what a sales rep over the phone said). Plus, on weekends, VZW waives activation fees over the phone and online. So that’s a $35 savings for me. A friend told me that if you put some pressure on a phone person, you can usually get a car charger and case thrown in. Plus, it’s free overnight shipping by FedEx.

      The VZW rep informed me that if you get a smartphone at Bestbuy, you are locked into a plan for 181 days. So if you want to change from a single plan to a family plan or lower your minutes, Best Buy will charge you $300.00. I went to a Best Buy store about pre-ordering the Thunderbolt and asked about the $300.00 charge if a plan is changed (big deal for me, since three other phones aren’t going to be available until June). The Best Buy was doing everything but actually giving me a straight answer, finally he confirmed everything the phone rep told me.

      Why is it that only people on a phone know what they’re talking about? I’d rather wait a day, save some money, and at least deal with someone that knows what they are talking aobut.

      • FTW

        False TDH. I work for Best Buy. We do not charge you to change your plan.

    i am friends with a verizon retail store rep and she confirmed that the tunderbolt’s release day is tomorrow feb 14th.

      Yup ur friend was wrong and theres a dumbass because as the president of Verizon said… we will not release any info on unrealeased phones until we know the exact date of when it is and you wont find out until everyone else does so stfu cause its still not released today

    • Don305

      Wrong. Its the 24 Feb.

    I JUST SPOKE TO BEST BUY, THEY CALLED ME BECAUSE I PRE ORDERED MY THUNDERBOLT, THEY TODLD ME IT HAS BEEN DELAYED TILL THE 24TH, WHAT BOTHERS ME IS , WHY DID I PRE PAY IF EVERONE IS GOING TO BE SELLING THE PHONE ON THE 24TH, ONLY THE PRE PAID PEOPLE SHOULD GET THE PHONE FIRTS, I MEAN AFTER ALL WE DID GO IN AND PRE PAY , KNOWING THAT THE IPONE WAS OUT ON THE 10, AND VERIZON CUSTOMERS WERE ABLE TO PRE ORDER FROM VERIZON ON THE 3RD OF FEB, AND THEY GOT THERE PHONES B4 THE 10TH !

      A preorder is to ensure you get one. It is held for you. It doesn’t ensure you get one early.

      • Mike_is_Mike

        Wrong. There never was a pre-order. What you bought was a $50 BB gift card, nothing more.

    • Nickszyp

      thats why it’s dumb to preorder from someone like best buy….all ur gonna do is make sure u get the phone…it’s not any diffrent then going to gamestop and pre ordering a game …you dont get it early

    I just order my phone on Best Buy and they were hesistant but I am hoping the 24th is the day. I will b e disappointed if I have to wait longer.

    • phone expert

      Total b s just talked to best buy he said he will be released 28th of Feb. And it will be coming out with a 1.2 dual processor don’t know if that’s correct though.

      • LOL@U

        Everyone here is dumb, read the specs on HTC.com Single core processor, the 4G is cheaper for VZW than 3G so dont expect a hike in prices…

      • Moneekaneek

        my bestbuy person told me the 28th as well. lets just hope htc,verizon,and bestbuy get this show on the road =)

      • Mike_is_Mike

        Well, you know now! :-)

        It didn’t come out on 2/28 and it’s not a 1.2 dual core processor.

  • Jesus

    iPhones garbage get the Thunderbolt

    • Tschmidtgall

      i totally agree i wouldnt take the iphone if it was free…

  • Marcus

    the release date is will be the 24th or after the phone is ready there just juggaling what they are gonna charge for 4g phones imagine them giving a release date with out giving a price for 4g data plans and for all those that preorder i hope the data plan dosn’t hick up to much. 10 to 15 more dollars is reasonable but if it’s more than that i will wait for the droid x 2

  • Tschmidtgall

    i have been in store and talked on the phone to different verizon reps over the past two months verizon will NOT raise the rates on the data plans for 4g…

  • Antney

    The price is not going up an say if it does 6 months from now an u all ready bought in at $30 your rate will not go up either you will be locked in at $30 for life as long as u never cancel your contract also best buy is the only place carry the thunderbolt on feb 24 verizon stores still have no launch date it got pushed back for them

  • Phuckyourmomma

    Anyone who just bought the Verizon iphone is a moron. The verizon iphone available now is only 3g. The 4g iphone doesn’t drop til this summer or later. LMAO @ people who bought brad new out dated iphones…. LOL

      LOL! Trust me I have been holding off on getting any other phone to get the thunderbolt. That’s what I keep on telling people. The DROID phone are going to take over the world. ;)

    • Tonibullen

      Was a asshole y would u think that is funny that people who bought the iPhone obv didn’t know they were going to put out a better one and keep in mind jackass it will happen to u too cause technology gets better everyday and. If u buy a iPhone over a droid ur a fucking moron so take that I have had every phone Verizon has put out and the iPhone is not even close in comparison to the droits IPhone can even do customized text tones andctge list goes on and on So phuckyourmomma dickface

  • Rob

    I wonder if holding out for a dual-core phone will be a better idea. From what I’ve read online (no not posts from you silly mofos that post in comment sections) the Thunderbolt is a single core, but I don’t imagine running several apps at a time so a single core may suffice. Oh and my money is on the 21st or 24th being the release date, mostly because Verizon doesn’t want a bunch of iPhones returned due to buyer’s remorse. Imagine getting your Verizon iPhone and 15 days later it’s yesterday’s news……DOH!

  • A.Meyer

    I’m one of those people that have the new iphone. Fortuneately, I did not purchase it, (my fiance bought them as velentines gifts for both of us), and I’m well within my 14 days of return to be able to HOPEFULLY receive the Thunderbolt, due to the phone being purchased last sunday on the 13th of February. Thank God! This means I have until the 27th of February to return this POS. There was a point in time that I really wanted the iphone, and so did she. But, due to AT&t’s crappy service, we both opted out and took our business to Verizon instead. I’m glad we did, because we were able to get aquainted with the Droids. I’m sold on the Droids big time!! I hope the release date for the Thnderbolt is accurate, otherwise I’m probably going to end up with the Droid X for 2 years :( .

    • Milrg1977

      you could always buy a used phone for now off of ebay or craigslist. that is what i did so i didn’t have to get locked into a 2 year contract before the thunderbolt came out. i bought a original droid and it came with the car and home docks for 225.00. but you can find cheaper phones than that if it is just a temporary fix. and you can sell it after you get your new phone. just a thought for you.

  • Scott_freeman61364

    No one cares anymore. Verizon has lost many sales over this. Everyone on the blogs are not holding there breath and are considring another phone w/a different carrier. This is really rediculious. WTF. What is customer service going to be like if people decide to go with the tb. Not a good start from Verizon. It is a very competitive market. All the hype for this phone and they really dropped the ball. I think the roll out of the tb will have platform issues and then everyone is really going to be bs. They can’t even handle a f’n release date. Wow. I am done. I am going to sit back and watch this mess unfold.

  • Bob

    all you idiots buying phones from an “authorized dealer” like Best Buy and not the store are stupid. No one in the store will ever want to help you and you are just dealing with idiots that know nothing about the phones or service. Go to a Verizon Store, a real one, and get real info, not online or calling the $8 an hour customer service reps with no training, go to a store where the professionals work.

    • Bob above is a VZW employee

      Oh yea … VZW employs the real “professionals” in their stores! Thats why it takes forever and a day when you have a legit problem with you phone that the Star-Trek retards in Tech Support can’t figure out for the sake of their lives!

      • Pimpmaster9000

        yyour are a retard. go to best buy and have them f up your order, bill, or phone. I’m not bob but I am a store manager for vzw. obviously there’s a reason why my sales reps make $65k a year and bby reps make $10 an hr. Better training, more skills, more intelligence… etc etc..

      • Frank BBYM and VZ Manager

        I have worked for both verizon and best buy. Verizon is just pushier and their customer service is still run by a bunch of young idiots making 8 bucks an hour. The job isn’t rocket science so I would go to best buy and get the better prices and not deal with the lousy mail in rebates like you would verizon. Plus verizon corporate stores have a higher mistake rate with contracts and activations the only difference is they are better trained on making the customer feel like an idiot.

      • Peryole

        once again…a lie; we have absolute control over any customer’s account and have the ability to make any change including correcting errors from au, retail and b2b.The only thing that we will not help with is issues made by these authorized agents because it’s not our jobs, our responsibility is to assist customers who visit our locations. I refuse to correct an issue from best buy 1 mile down the road when the customer could have come into my location and if their accounts had been screwed up by me, I have the ability to correct it without them even knowing about it.

      • Atl3630

        Lying about how much your employees make? Come on, man! Are you even a Verizon manager? The average Verizon customer service rep (they don’t have a “sales rep” position) makes $27,000 a year. Proof you say? http://www.bizjournals.com/wichita/news/2011/02/21/verizon-success-sparks-employee-bonus.html

      • Peryole

        total lie… an inexperienced customer services rep would make that amount. One that has apparently just started. As a customer service rep a vzw for 5yrs my salary was 43,000 as a sales rep it’s more along the lines of 65-72k. Don’t believe everything you see on websites, they are just an average tally.

I’m kind of rough sometimes being in the military .. To all the current vzw customers and future customers don’t be discouraged I would definitely wait on the Bionic or one of the other 3 phones in the link I provided*

  • RunaroundBS23

    this is all a crock of BS if anyone sits back and thinks about it 1. there is no comercial on the air for the phone except for youtube. 2. when they were going to come out with 4G they talked and talked about it for yrs then they hyped everyone one up when they finally showed a comercial for 4G saying coming soon and that was like what 6 month ago and now they are just now selling products for computers for 4G! 3. look how long they talked about getting the stupid IPHONE for VZW and it just now shows up! sry but that phone can stay at AT&T if you ask me!
    So all there doing is running ppl ragged about this damne phone that prolly wont come out for another 2months or so…

  • Vee Zee Dub Dude

    I work for vzw and I can tell you this much. We have an internal tool called equipment guide that lists both current and upcoming devices. New devices usually show up in there about 3-4 days before they officially launch. The thunderbolt hasn’t shown up yet, so there is no way its launching tomorrow. It might be launching next week, might be next month, but I can tell you definitively its not tomorrow.

  • Misha9

    All i know is i have the Incredible the phone itself is great and i love all the capabilities BUT, I am literally on my 4th device in less than a year and i am getting annoyed. VZ used to have a policy after 3 devices u got a new phone. They should really start taking into consideration what their customers are saying. I switched from Nextel to VS for the better service. Unfortunately i lost on the great customer service Nextel.
    VZ has become so BIG they really dont care what their customers say. I have heard from friends AT&T takes better care of their customers but their cell service is horrible. That was my rant. I want the thunderbolt

    • cmorris

      I have been with verizon for nearly 8 years and I love them and their customer service. I used to have sprint, at&t and t-mobile and hated all of them….I will never leave verizon.

  • presti3344

    I would not hold your breath for the Feb. 28th release date. I have been dead on thus far with my info and predictions. Verizon just keeps dropping the ball. The Thunderbolt is going to be a big disappointment. I can not believe Verizon has added insult to injury by asking $299.00 for this phone. This phone will be marked down to $150.00 before the summer starts and everyone will have forgotten all about the Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt is alot of rumbling and no big thunder bang or lightning to follow. What a joke.

  • BamaBuck

    This is what happened:
    - iPhone release date got pushed back, so the ThunderBolt release date got pushed back because Apple and Verizon had an agreement to wait 30 days before releasing a 4G LTE phone.
    - New Verizon phones release on Thursdays so expect the phone to come out March 17th however you can pre-order them now at Best Buy for $50 down.

    Thors – those are companies that sell the TB (wirefly). I’m sure a couple of TBs have been stolen, and others may have been released by Verizon for youtube reviews to build anticipation for the phone. You’ll notice in the reviews that nobody has actually connected the phone to the Verizon network…

    I called my local best buy and they said they advised that they got an a-mail on Feb. 22nd stating that it would be March before they got the HTC Thunderbolt. But, they couldn’t say when in March. This is absolutely ridiculous as I need a new phone now because my Env touch went berzerk on me.

  • http://www.simgameit.com SimGameIt

    I called my local VZ store 2 days ago. I had a couple questions about the TB. Anyways when i mentioned the release date he seemed puzzled and said the release date was sometime in April. Then after a short pause he said i sorry, your right, it is due to be out on Feb. 24th. It seems to me that the store level employeed get their info the same way we do, by idiots on the net with nothing better to do than spread lies and speculation.

    Im not due to upgrade in late April myself. Im going with wirefly cause why pay alot of money for it when i can get it for the cost of shipping. But i want it to release real soon so i can read about what we, the real users think about the phone. Im dissapointed but im not gonna cry like a 5 year old or threaten to chage carriers. Im with Verizon for a reason even though i think they and all phone companies are a big scam. VZ simply has the best phone service and i can deal with their customer service. Only customer support ive ever called and said “Im a PC tech, ive done all the normal stuff to check for issues so please dont make me go through all the things ive already done again.” and they actually listen and dont make me play the retard game to diagnose the issue. But since i ditched the BB Storm and went with the D2 i havent had a need to call them. An awesome phone it is. Im looking forward to the TB and its FFC.

    P.S. If you believe whats written on the internet your a bigger retard than the people spreading the rumors. Ill be willing to bet itll come out when VZ says its done and ready to release and no sooner. BTW i wouldnt buy a roll of toilet paper from best buy if they sold it noless a phone. I boycotted them when they started the “Geek Squad”. Anyone willing to be called a geek because they are an employee has really low self esteem and shame on Best Buy for degrading people just cause the name might do well in marketing. Sure im a geek, but thats for me to say, not my employer.

      I stopped shopping at BestBuy when they started charging restocking fees. Amazing they can get away with that given their prices are already higher.

      P.S. Wirefly = always free FedEx shipping.

      • Zeeds6

        Just so you know best buy got ride of their restocking fees as Wal-Mart just added them

    • Regena

      The people who work for best buys geek squad choose to fill out an application and be hired (as job was offered) Best buy didn’t go to some one on the street and say come with me you’re going to work on the geek squad …so the people who do work on the geek squad are deciding to be called geeks. No one forced them to take that job..
      Low self esteem maybe you do (“Sure im a geek”) but the people who work at the geek squad probably trying to pay the bills

  • Thors20

    I just went to best buy and they said they had one in stock and so i was able to get mine. I am sooo happy because i went to the verizon store and they said it wasnt going to be out until march. so it does help to just check at the stores.

    • LoL

      Dude, look again. I think they gave you one of those Iphone pieces of crap that they cant sell. Cause the only ones that have the phone are the major dealers. And those phones arent complete. Watch the wirefly unboxing video that was just made on the 11th of this month and listen to what he says. He says plain as day that he has a “pre-release” version. Which generally means it not nearly fully functional. But looks good enough asthetically to use for advertisement.

      • Nickszyp33

        ya that dude is an idiot…all over the net and on the vzw site it says coming soon…yes best buy gave u the oooooooooooooonly one they had and no body else was able to get one …even tho im sure several others pre ordered it….everyone knows your full of shit

    I was told by a Verizon employee that it is being delayed do to 4G radio issues and now it’s release depends on the new firmware testing. All he said is the release date is “TBD in March”

  • Pudhair9503

    I was told today by my VWC that Monday the 28th was their release date and that they already had them in the back waiting.

  • Jay

    Just spoke to my VW rep today and she says “possibly” tomorrow, but definately by MONDAY. I also asked about the SKYPE functionality rumor, and she assures me that SKYPE will be fully functional at launch. This is going to be the longest weekend ever….

    • Cchorner1975

      while we’re on best buy stories, i called mine today, asking where my phone was since once again it didn’t come in, and was told the phone is having “production issues”. I asked what the phone isn’t working? and she replied “no, best buy sold alot more than they expected” so they are trying to launch to meet demand…..i’m number one on that best by list so i realy don’t care as long as they get 1 ya know lol, but she asked a co’worker there and he “thinks” monday….this is getting very comical now. i’d really like to know what kind of conversations are going on behind the scenes, i mean a couple hundred thousand phones with a $50 deposit for a month, whats interest on $5 million over a month just sitting in a bank account for a month, i mean at 1% they made $50k and haven’t sold a phone.and thats just a 100k reserved, it may be high i don’t know.

      • Nickszyp33

        you’ll get your phone when verizon chooses to release it not best buy…they are verizons lil slut with a little mobile stand in there store

  • internetlies

    Popherald already said its march and theyre the first credible to report

  • guessstttt

    soo i work at bby (in customer service) & i was told that the phone should be out either march 3rd or 4th…im not even gonna get my hopes up until i see an official date on verizon’s website. But i will say last week i went on bestbuy.com and there was nothing about the thunderbolt on the website but i went on today and they have stuff up on the website….also if your looking to get the phone you should go to verizons website to see if you live in an area where 4g is supported..

    • SigmaNu

      The TB is an Evo with a weaker battery. The only issue with the Evo IS THE BATTERY. Everyone that is planning on buying this phone go ahead a pre-order an extended battery with it.

    • Jenwiel

      you should definitely check to see if 4g is in your area. I want this phone and there is no 4g service in my area as of yet. how’s that supposed to work?

      • Justme

        ull use 3g but ur area will be upgrd hopefully soon

  • Moneekaneek

    all i can say is non of us on here will ever know the TRUE release date and fighting about it is seriously not going to help anyone. just make matters worse. believe me im bummed and impatient as most of you are on here but instead of yelling or making rude jesters or giving incorrect information out to others just relax it will be out when its out and if you really want it althought as irritating as it may seem it will be well worth the waite. as far as any info i have seen i went on best buys sight and say it t-bolt in there paper with the price but no release date. the only thing that gave me some what hope was the pricing on the weekly add was suppose to be in affect FEB 20th – FEB 28th. so i thought hey maybe it will be released by then. but as i said im not here to give out incorrect information nor am i saying my hopping was a accurate release date. im just posting what i saw on bestbuy.com. i also called a best buy rep to see what was up they aid no release date by shouldnt be past Feb 28t. so that as weel gave me hope. but then i read information there was proof for march 3rd 4th ansd 10th. this is seriously mind nausa. lol lets just all hope verizon,htc,and bestbuy get this show on the road and stop the madness with the guessing of the release dates. thanks for reading and sorry for any errors. im kinda doing this fast lol. thanks agian.

    • Moneekaneek

      i ment FEB 20th – FEB 26th for the weekly add at best buy (sorry)

  • Oi

    wtf bgr never lies well he now has a track record.

  • Nickszyp33

    first of all most of us arn’t fighting about it….were slamming others who post they got the phone….or claim to have knowledge about it…..noone does….it’s all speculation…and as far as anything that comes from best buy is completely unreliable i saw something this morning from them saying march 10th but it was a cheesy excel sheet that had the iphone on it and a few other phones that already released along with the thunderbolt…best buy won’t have any knowledge of it ahead of when verizon says it’s going to release

  • Rjk286

    the only reason why they push the date back is cause ther tryin to get A&T customors to buy verizon iphone but personaly i wouldnt buy iphone cause the callin on it is just a mess cause when you hold it in your hand while your on phone the signal goes down an i got a samsung right now an i just wish they let the phone come out soon . But thunderbolt gonna be beter than iphone soo dont trip but really they just want more customors

    • Oiad

      you are fucking stupid.

      • Robert

  • ebowe

    well it’s the 25th and it’s still not out so your resources were crap and they were only rumors. it’s going to stay like this for a while to build up the anticipation and wait for other phone sales to slow down first

  • Kyle Mankowski

    I walked into a VZW on my lunch yesterday and had no issues getting details from the store manager. He indicated all of their product training wrapped up 2 weeks ago and let me hold, touch feel a non-operational demo that was left behind following training. He couldn’t be specific about the timing of the release but did say that his understanding of the delays surrounded HTC pulling or enhancing some aspect of an application that wasn’t testing well.

  • Biteme

    FWIW – Our Verizon rep says she hears it’s coming next week. We’ll see…

  • Dimplz0903

    March 4th isn’t a Thursday, it’s a Friday :(
    So when is the actual date?

  • Moses

    I just had a phone conference with God, Allah, and Buddah. They confirm it will out out during the 3rd quarter of revelations. They also confirmed that Steve Jobs is a bitch along with the rest of the Apple company.

    God will hold a press conference at CES 2012 with all the details. And insists we all ridicule Iphone users into certain suicide (cause violence isnt allowed lol).

    lets try this nomore hear say on dates because verizon will let us know. this drama with the dates and assuming things is pointless. im sorry to say. Also due to my previous post to some of you assuming i was giving you actuall dates i made my point that they were not correct rumors and only by what i was told and saw. but just because they were told to me doesnt make it correct. but patience is what we all need and when verizon and htc are ready it will be out. its the hard truth and everyone (including myself) needs to cope with it, but rumors, rudeness, and hear say…pointless.. seriously. when a comerical, verizonwireless.com, or htc.com has i date then thats when it comes out. its as simple as that. thankyou.

  • Princessunvme

    its coming out in march for sure.

  • Gsantiag

    Well. I gave my $50.00 down deposit yesterday to reserve the phone at Best Buy. I asked for a release date but the sales rep told me the same thing we keep hearing here and there. He said it’s supposed to come out on the 28th of February BUT the release date has been pushed back two times already. Verizon even pulled their Thunderbolt ad of the internet. Now it’s “private” in Verizon’s youtube channel. Other people have posted it though. Here’s some comments from other sites:

    “March 4 is the latest ‘solid’ release date, which was mentioned in a Tweet by a lone Best Buy store.”
    “An HTC training rep confirmed the March 4 target, but said that there are a lot of politics with all of the involved parties and it may take another two weeks before the Thunderbolt actually goes on sale.”

    All we can do is wait. I hoped for it to come out with Gingerbread though but it doesn’t. It comes with Froyo 2.2 :(

  • Blondefloppy

    I played with the fake phone for display at Verizon. The release date is February 28th. The man at Verizon confirmed this. It’s going to be in the next shipment. Being put on display Sunday night the 27th.

  • ChrisZ

    Verizon is taking their sweet time with the release so that all those people who freaked out for the iphone can’t return it for the thunderbolt. Which sucks for me because I really want the thunderbolt.

    • Nickszyp33

      yes im sure thats one of the reasons the date is pushed back to keep the idiots from returning their iphone

  • Gsantiag

    Well. I’m looking at the Best Buy flier right now. It shows it on page 2 at the top left. It doesn’t say coming soon anymore. It just says the price with the two year activation etc.. It doesn’t say available Tuesday or anything like that. So I’ll be there first thing in the morning today to get mine. (It it’s available)

    • Nick

      Awesome dude. Thanks!!

      • ld5408

        A piece of advise… don’t do that. You know that if it was available there would have been some huge announcement by verizon… after all the wait and anticipation, it wouldnt just appear on the Best Buy ad quietly. You are going to go into Best Buy, you are probably going to get mad, frustrated, dissappointed, and yell at some poor best buy employee that had nothing to do with the printing of the ad (if you are the kind of person that yells at employees.. I’m not sayin u are, just sayin that there are a lot of jerks on this website that are). So save yourself….. if the phone was really available, you would have verizon almost throw a party about it…

      • Gsantiag

        Never thought about it that way. Good point Id5408.

      • Nickszyp

        agreed ,,,,vzw will let u know when it’s out…i wrote them a letter complaining about their service and all the trouble i’ve had with my current droid and how they screwed up letting best buy take preorders causing all these release date leaks etc. got a call friday saying sorry about it yada yada and no release date yet for the phone…however i may just go down to best buy and attempt to buy since the ad says nothing about it not being in or only taking pre orders etc …i know it’s not out but maybe a threat to the better bus. bureu for false advertising might get some sort of enjoyment out of it since them alone has caused everyone waiting for the phone to go nuts…if it was just verizon with the coming soon it wouldn’t of caused half of the frustration that is going on now

  • adw13

    All I can say is that I hope the price is not $299.99 for the Thunderbolt as it shows in the BestBuy add. I am sure the price still has not been locked in yet, but looking at AT&T they have their new Motorola Atrix, which has a Dual core processor on their 4G network, for only 199.99.

    • Bob

      I got the best buy add as well today in the mail showed the thunderbolt for 299 with the contract..pretty sure thats a solid price for it……if they put it in their mailings as the price gotta be it…if 300 is to steep for you then get the atrix then

      Bad news for you – $299.99 is the price. But it doesn’t matter, because they are never going to release it for sale. They are just going to rot on the shelves.

    after sporting wood for this phone thinking it may come out soon im holding off on getting when it does ever actually come out…..the evo looks basically identical and has already released ….at this point if i didn’t get a company discount at verizon i think i’d switch to sprint

    something is seriously fucked up with the thunderbolt and big red……go to htc’s website look at all their phones…doesn’t even have the TB untill u search for it can’t compare it to the other phones just a few specs and where to buy which only lists vzw…..the evo is lets face it the same phone but carried by sprint….their phone released…the whole battery issue im not believing if a almost identical phone can be released without issue so can the thunderbolt…commericals say 4g is here from vzw…well where is the phone that was supposed to come with it…How long before people get completely sick of waiting…and just switch to sprint or give up on the wait and give in and get the iphone even though it’s about to be in consumer reports as top phones not to get

  • madmangenius

    I just left a Verizon store and they said that they were notified that the phones would be delivered tomorrow. He didn’t say that it would be available to purchase at that time, only that they would be delivered.

    • smarterthenmadmangenious

      if you honestly believe that…with everyting else people have been told about release dates and information that the low level store employee has told others then i feel sorry for you…especially since best buy is trying to refund the preorder sales if the phone release was this close

      • madmangenius

        I’m not sure I believe it or not. They guy who told me this knows that I have been in there asking about it and he sort of knows me by now. He knows that I only go to that store so he would have no reason to lie to get me to come back tomorrow…however, I have been reading a lot about it so I know that no one really knows. It is a relatively new store so it doesn’t have a ton of customers yet like the big verizon stores which could be a reason for him to get me to come back but again, he knows that I only go there because there is NEVER a wait. I was just posting a comment about what I heard, I hope he is right, but who knows!

        noone is screaming or crying like a baby…people are pissed and frustrated…ok so say you paid money up front for a bag of good shit and kept hearing your gonna get it your gonna get it then a month goes by and u don’t get it…your gonna get pissed and vent,,,,and btw most people are talking bout going to someone else because incase u don’t know vzw has switched almost every policy they have..5 dollar insurance on a phone used to be able to replace your phone no questions asked now you pay that 5 dollars a month if something does happen it just allows you to be able to pay almost a 100 dollarsto replace that phone..shit like that is what has ppeople fed up with them now you take in the fact they took in alot of peoples money with no product it’s the last straw for most

  • Cchorner1975

    well after my pre-order on the 6th, I RECIEVED MY FIRST CALL FROM BEST BUY, at first when i saw the number i was nervous they wanted to return my deposit cuz some jackass said that on here somewhere today, but, anyhow, todays story was, allegedly from verizon, that the 10th is the day, and hoping to get in before then but tenth looks like the day and i repeated several times, “is that from verizon”, which he kept saying yes…..not looking to bullshit anyoe, just conveying my experiences so far like i’ve been doing, i mean it has to come out sometime right? Right before all the other carriers release there new 5g systems.

    • Gsantiag

      There will be no 5g in ages to come. At least yet. According to this article even the 4g is not actually a 4g at all. It’s all a myth. Check out this interesting article:

    Well, it looks like I can #1 get the Droid X faster, and much cheaper #2 I can add more memory to it and be just as satisfied with it’s performance. Since 4G doesn’t really exist here in Indianapolis, and Verizon and HTC are still monkeying around with politics and the battery. I think I will make my move.
    I was initially looking for the HTC Trophy, but hey, that turned out as a joke too huh?

    • Choe

      the droid x is a fucking lemon. dont waste your time or money, motorola is the worst, and have always made shotty hardware. Mine has required a hard reset 3 times in 5 months, and is really laggy to the point of me wanting to smash it almost daily.

        agree with you. On the suppose release date of HTC Thunderbolt, VZW annouced their sales for Apple Iphone4 were up. There is no way they will kill the sale by releasing another 4G phone.

  • Ryn_wllmsn

    i here its march 10th it comes out.

    • Mike_is_Mike

      You need to get your hereing (hearing) checked – it’s march 13th and still no phone.

  • Ecua47jlsb2000

    None of the sites like this one are reliable. People read web forums or ‘credible’ sites like this one and then go around announcing release dates like they heard it directly from the manufacturer. How can you guys continue writing this crap?

  • Imnikko

    bull sh** it’s march 5 & it’s still not out on verizon

  • Ikeluv5

    well if bgr never lies then y when i went to verizon to buy the phone did they say the phone is not in yet and they dont know when its coming…im pissed

  • Mike

    • Mike_is_Mike

      My bookie says the odds of that are 5 to 1.

    Maybe it takes a long time to get the software bloated up and Bing search locked in.

  • Gsantiag

    Well. Best Buy’s flier came out for the week of March 6th to the 12th. It shows the ThunderBolt on the last page still as “coming soon”. I guess you can scratch March10th from the list as well.

  • spanky

    I got mine at a truck stop in Kentucky. The driver was selling them out of the back while stopped enroute to Verizon stores!

  • TrickyDick

    VZW’s been leaking specs and what not for the Thunderbolt since August ’10 and it still hasn’t released? The real question is whether it’ll debut while it’s still relevant. For instance, the Droid Bionic (which hasn’t released either) has tastier specs and all the other manufacturers are constantly in development (that’s their bread and butter). Is VZW waiting for this thing to be completely obsolete and for interest to completely wane before they release it? Oh, and by the way, a built-in FM radio? Really?!? What is this, the ’90′s?

    • Mike_is_Mike

      By the time Verizon releases these phones the batteries will be corroded and the phones won’t work. Then 1 week later they will announce the Thunderbolt II.

  • Jasoncoughlin70

    it is past feb 24 and it is still not out

  • Hardbody18

    I Just Dont Understand How Can No One Know When The HTC Thunderbolt Is Coming Out !!! Thats Crazy …. Im Gettin Tired Of Waiting !!!!!!

    • Jkey66

      i herd the new due date is the 10th of march due to the new release of the iphone coming out the same week as the tbolt

      • Mike_is_Mike

        OK. It’s now the 7th of March – Were is the announcement? This whole thing has been such cluster fox trot I’ll bet they NEVER announce it, they’ll just start putting them on the selves and selling them. Verizon sure knows how to screw things up.

    Its March and still not available…etch that in stone.

  • verizon

    People, settledown, From the begining Verizon has never disclose the release date, we only said, by the end of the 1st quarter.
    So if you finally, quit the gossips and tha back anD forth with this, and stop the games, and so let you know the release date is March 31 of 2011 Thursday.
    So there it is.

    • Obama

      Hahaha. Wow.. that sounds really official. I’ll bet you’re the CEO aren’t you? lol
      Well i’m Obama. See, you know it’s official cause it’s my screename. :)

    This is like waiting for a baby to be born, but you have no idea how far along it is in development. Except once it comes out, you can’t get rid of it if it sucks! Maybe my ofice should start a calender! Lol

    Well, i have bad news. I just talked to two different sales reps. at Verizon this morning to find out if the Thunderbolt was out. They said, no, and it will probably be summer now before it gets released. Guess I’m going to buy a phone off e-bay as I desparately need a new phone because my env touch is all messed up. Don’t want to void my discount if the Thunderbolt ever does come out. Unless someone knows how to trouble shoot an env touch screen freezing up.

    Who the frack wants a buggie verizon phone anyway. They already dropped the TB commericals.

  • Anonymous

    My corporate Verizon rep still stands by these dates;
    Thunderbolt 3/24, Incredible HD 4/17, Bionic 5/5.

    • Sj

      I’m with you! I was wondering when the incredible HD would be coming out.

    • Lll

    Another rumor scratched. Not the 10th people.

  • Aljar

    Well, Verizon really screwed up by cranking up the Marketing on this phone so early! The delay seems to have a simple explanation…
    Take a look at the 4G LTE coverage map, and you will find that most of the time you will be running 3G – even in metro areas. The 4G map looks like Swiss cheese. They must be delaying in order to ramp up 4G, and not come out with a major PR disaster.

    Well. The phone is finally here.Went on sale today morning. The phone I must admit is fast but on the internet on the hands on it shows the phone booting up in about 8 seconds. The one I have takes almost 30. Big difference. Well. I hope you like the phone as much as I do.

    • http://twitter.com/Nguyen Vincent Nguyen

      Fast boot is off by default. go to Settings > Power and then check fast boot.

      • Gsantiag

        Got it!! Thanks :)
