Great News... I went to my cingular store today and asked about the V3i and they said that they would have it on September 6. I live in the Twin Cities and I don't know if that is the nation wide release date but it is for the Twin Cities.
The sky has been falling so many times on this one that until it is actually IS BEING SOLD at Cingular stores or by them on the web, anything said about future release dates is meaningless (even if the info you have happens to be right this time - even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut).
I did not get a v3 in January because with the contract I did not want to be stuck with that out of date technology until 2008. Now if I get the v3i I'll be stuck with it until almost 2009 .... hmmmm
That's why I've given up on the v3i and will start waiting for the k1 or the v3maxx or decide on something from another manufacturer. Of course by the time the k1 or maxx ship ... next summer I presume ... ha ha ... there will be the next soon to... (continues)
Limited would be a nice way of putting it. Verizon hasn't done that with any of their blue-tooth phone's have they? Your logic is a bit off at least with a cingular phone you don't have a company maiming your phone !!!
Yeah yeah yeah ... you the blind squirrel ... cherish your nut.
I would have killed to get the phone in February. I would have loved to get the phone in March. I would have enjoyed to get the phone in April. I would have gladly taken the phone in May. I would have taken the phone in June. And maybe also in July.
