Best Buy today announced that it will be the exclusive retail seller of the HTC Thunderbolt, one of the first handsets with Long Term Evolution 4G to ship for Verizon Wireless. The device is available for pre-order immediately, though it won't become available until mid-February. Best Buy didn't provide a price for the Thunderbolt.

This is False

Best Buy will not be the only ones selling the HTC Thunderbolt. Totally false. Even other authorized retailers are going to be selling it as ordering managers have already been working out the first shipments. Our stores have already received the Model mock ups as well.

Best Buy attempted to be the only seller but that was quickly shot down around the CES in January.
Don't cry. I'm sure after Best Buy has had a retail exclusive of a month or so the other retail stores (direct and agents) will get the Thunderbolt.
You know this to be false how? Because you got a mock phone? I am looking for a little more concrete information on this subject.

hey verizon, save your money on ads!

instead of wasting million$ on ads.
how about lower the price for service plan!
att family plan start at 59.99 VS Verizon at 69.99. i rarely use over 2gb data per month, 25$ VS 30$ on verizon. i save 15$ each month by staying with att! if you can match att prices, you have another customer! i'm sick of att always getting garbage phones!
OMG just go away! Don't you have some billy goats to harass or something?
Obviously your hate isn't worth $15.00 otherwise you would have switched already.
What im sick of is people bitching about money. If youre a cheap ass keep it to yourself.

They'll be the exclusive National Retailer

Which means out of stores like Walmart, BJ's, etc.

Premium/authorized retailers and corp stores should also have it at launch.

At least, that's what I'm reading from their press release.
Does BJ's have any national retail locations, or are they all corp SWAS?

We have been told the Thunderbolt will be $249.99 from corporate like a week ago...
Yep, and no Mail In Rebate. 😁
