I was told by an assosciate of mine here @VZW who is testing the handset (which only has 15 second video, not 3 minute like the phone info on this website.. hopefully the "real" version will have the 3 minutes) and she is telling me that it probably will not roll until August. The phone is pretty sweet... but not sure if it is 1.2 megapix either... pictures do look great.

AFTER the end of the Moto accessory contest ... and more than a month after MOTO begins placing print ads????

Possible ... but, IMO, not likely.

Just passing along some info. Again, this person works in tech support and has been testing the v710 for over a month. we also have the 810 in testing... I hope you're right, though. I have been waiting months for this phone.

Well -- one way or another -- at some point we'll know for sure. The trick is being patient! 😉

I work for VZW and I as well have been waiting for this phone. The guys in network behind me have the phone and are still testing it.

I tend to agree that the phone will not be out in July. I hate to wait but I would rather them get the phone and test it thoroughly before they release it. In order to avoid launching a POS like the T720/T730 was...

Oh, you're right - I agree with you completely.

You're absolutely right because:

1. Motorola (a) would *never* change the expiration date of a promotion, and (b) would *never* insert legal language in the T's & C's of a promotion that would completely vitiate the expiration date regardless; and

2. Mass marketers *never* publicize things like movies, cars, music, etc. well in advance of their release date to build buzz for products.

[/sarcasm]

I want this phone almost as badly as anyone - I'm still walking around with a 60c, but I've h...

Ummm ... maybe you missed it, Greg ... but I did say that it was POSSIBLE. It's just my opinion (as I also stated) that it's not LIKELY.

I never claimed that my opinion was any more valid than anyone else's ... and I never claimed that I actually knew the release date.

So just chill out. The sarcasm really isn't necessary.

I'm gonna have to call BS on this one. We've all known for weeks that the phone has 15 second video, not 3 min. I'm sure the phone is more than capable of capturing 3 minutes of video, but VZW limits it for Video Messaging purposes. And why would an official VZE tester not have the "real" version of a phone? Isn't th...
