    The stores have been told nothing. There is no pricing information and no release date at this point.
    actually here in Florida it is 100% accurate, can't reveal my source(s) but it
    is factual.

    Couldn't this just be a way to spread misinformation. Doesn't this seem convienvent with nearly every other piece of documentation we have seen having said the 21st?

    VZW spreading missinformation intentionally?

    It's possible Valace but both VZW and RIM need to hit a home run with the Storm 2 release. If anything you would figure they would marketing the crap out of it. The majority of BB owners are not on forums or blogs so to keep this hidden or mislead just doesn't make any sense, although wouldn't be the first time VZW has done something like that.

    Really I do hope your right Ricky, I hope the phone would be released tomorrow. However, we have a member who works for VZW in that region and nothing is showing in the computer regarding a drop shipment nor when the phone is going to release let alone pricing. So if your logic follows, how can they sell a phone that has not been priced? Furthermore, it would make no sense that Dayton would start selling phones on the 21st and Los Angeles would not. All hell would break lose.

    Take this for what its worth. I have a friend that is an authorized retailer for vzw... which in turn means they find and get everything absolutely last. With that said, this person has gotten the dummy device for the Motorola 755 replacement.. that device doesnt even have a rumored release date. With that said they also have an agreement in the contract with VZW that, VZW will release any training, and info documents about a newly released phone by 3 business days prior to the release of the phone.(soft launch or not) that 3 business day rule would have been yesterday. i had my friend check at the close of business today and there is NO, absolutely no info on their system about this. Like I said at the beginning take this for what its worth
