Verizon Wireless Touch Pro2 Discussion Thread

Okay so I just got off the phone with Verizon Customer Service (switching my service over to my replacement TP after keyboard died). And while I'm waiting on the phone and she's working on setting it up, I ask her if she has heard anything about the release date for the Touch Pro 2. So she says she'll look into it while I'm on the phone...

So she goes to some part of their system that has all the info on upcoming devices. And the listed release for the Verizon Touch Pro 2 is mid-late September!

She said there is a small possibility it could be pushed back but based on what she saw it looked good to go for a September release!
Just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone else that's been dying to know!

lol! I hear that! Don't get me wrong, I'm still holdin out hope that september is a go. I would be surprised that verizon was only a month behind other carriers though. The TP was what, 4 months(ish) behind Sprint?

Re: Verizon Touch Pro 2 - Release Date -

I was on the phone with my veterinarian, who happens to be a vegetarian that shops at this organic produce place that this girl works at, and her ex-boyfriend used to work at Verizon, and he said the TP2 would be out in September!!!

of course he also said that VZW gimped it...

sorry, had to add sarcasm

EDIT: by the way, on a more serious note, has anyone noticed that the TP2 isn't on HTC's website anymore? I remember seeing it, but checked last night to no avail.

No VZW Customer Service Rep knows the release date for this phone, not even a ballpark...I can confirm that this is indeed, hearsay

Re: Verizon Touch Pro 2 - Release Date -

my buddys "friend with benefits" is a corporate sales associate for VZW.. she goes corp to corp to try a swing their buisness to VZW by making elaborate presentations..

she says VZW hasnt even made a firm decision to carry the TP2 still... they got TONS of negative feedback from the TP1, and everyone tried to bring their non VZW branded TP1 over to VZW and the higher ups dont like it... she says most likely it wont come at all, or they will be the very last carrier, if at all, to get it...

right now VZWs main focus is the Omnia II and the Omnia Pro.. shes saying the Omnia Pro wll probably replace the TP2 in the VZW lineup to avoid the frenzy theyve had to deal with over the TPs...

but hey, we all have rumor stories

Now why do you think that is? Could it possibly be because Verizon made a completely retarded decision to cripple the hardware on their Touch Pro and that those who brought over Touch Pros from other carriers would have happily bought VZW's version if they didn't have to pay more for an inferior device? Might want to pass that along to your friend. Either that or maybe they should LET THE CUSTOMER DECIDE what phone they want to use. As long as it is CDMA and meets e911 requirements, it shouldn't be an issue. You can charge the same price but you don't have to offer support or subsidize a handset. Seems like a win for everyone to me.

Typical VZW logic. Screw up, refuse to accept responsibility for it, then compound your mistake by not releasing a great device. when the fix is RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR NOSE.

/rant - not an attack on you boredandtattooed, simply get sick of the "logic" of corporations like this sometimes. Their continual effort to increase shareholder profit causes them to lose sight of the fact that ultimately they exist at the pleasure of the customer. Provide a quality product at a price reflective of its value and you will have no trouble getting business. Like they say, penny wise and pound foolish.
