Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

He "double checked" and indicted the FM hardware was there. The Sprint Diamond DOES not have this hardware, so I guess this comment will prove much in a few days when the phone comes out and someone installs the FM cab, which is on XDA, as was most of what was posted as "insider information".

Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

From what I do remember in the thread, they'd have to be done with all the updates by Thursday because the workers were going to get a 4 day weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon) due to their working OT to meet the Best Buy deadline.

Anyhow, thanks for starting this thread and hopefully we can keep on topic.

Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

It was "double checked"... Another thing, that would be great if true, is that Critical indicated that the difference in the roms between the Pro and the Diamond "were the same except for minor edits". Does not sound plausibile to me, but if so, that will make it much easier to port the modded roms the Diamond already has to our Pros. <Fingers Crossed>

Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

Yes indeed,...thanks cant wait to dump this Diamond now as well. The heating issues and battery life are bad. Not to mention no keyboard , so either way we need the Touch PRO

I know that a lot of people are anxiously awaiting the Touch Pro and tensions can get high.

I ask that you all follow 2 simple rules for this thread to keep it relevant and to prevent it from being closed.

1. Stay On Topic

2. No bashing criticalaudioinc's reputation or authenticity. Based on the information he's provided publicly and privately, I have no reason to doubt him. I could be wrong, but we are acting on the assumption that he is legit for the purposes of this thread. If you think otherwise, post it in another thread.


FAQ - Most of this info has been so kindly offered by criticalaudioinc.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who is criticalaudioinc
(in his words)
I work in a repair/order/design facility for HTC and 1 other project That I work on. Our building is owned buy another corp But HTC owns the project guidelines. Kinda like how cell phone company lease out call centers for there support. You can lease out facilitys ( cheaper that way ) And set them as projects with in the facility. HTC owns most of it. Except for the Reverse Logistics which is the order portion and handles the shipments.

When is the Sprint Touch Pro going to be released?
11/2 For telesales and EVP orders. When they will be available in sprint stores is a question due to very low stock due to EVP orders and sprint preparing for the Diamond exchanges and telesales. It's in discussion about letting telesales except orders on Nov 1 or possibly Oct 26th but its on discussion from what corp sprint has provided.

Why the delay?
Partly due to the large demand and partly due to some issues that are being fixed by centers like criticalaudioinc works in. Here are some of the issues listed:

Camera Lag issues - Software
GPS Lag issues - Software/reg edit
TF3D exception issues - software/reg edit/update
Camera Update - Software
System Performace with Processor - Software Update/patch
Speaker Volume issue - Check Hardware - Software/AD Update
Control PAD maulfunction - Software/Update

Was there a Recall?
Shipment of the pros was not recalled but pulled, due to they did not reach customers or stores or main hubs its not considered a recall. Criticalaudioinc is not the only person doing the rom repairs and updates, this means him and other co workers 200+. His HTC location is doing updates to the pro using the systems HTC provides along with serveral other locations. They have many machines that can flash multiple devices at the same time (16 I believe).

What about Telus (Canada)
We have units shipping to Canada as why we were not told but my order shows canada and they are unmarked. ( meaning no logo. )

What about Best Buy?
They are estimated to have them on 10/26. You can also get a 20% discount through their free rewards program through 11/1. See HERE for more info on the 20% discount and to sign up.

Can I pre-order?
Not unless you are eligible for the EVP program - LINK

What about Custom ROMs and Kitchens?
You can discuss those HERE

How much will it cost through Sprint?
It will be $579 if you buy it outright. If you are 22 months into your current contract, you can get another $150 off for renewing 2 more years. If you are between a year and 22 months, you can get $75 for a 2 year renewal. There is also a $100 Mail In Rebate from Sprint, but you must be 22 months into your contract to be eligible. Some have sent in in on past phone that were under 22 months and still got it, so YMMV. With all of these discounts, you are looking at $329 after rebate for new lines of service and those eligible for the $150 upgrade credit. NOTE: I've seen $299 after rebate mentioned as well, so that might be the price at release.

Got a user's guide?
Here is the LINK. It's an 8.2mb PDF for the Sprint version.


I'm adding more info....just have to skim through the other thread to get more data.

First greatly appreciate this! I will post further updates in here and that will be the last time I go to lunch lol

Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

Have to admit a lot cleaner and I will attempt my best to keep it this way and many thanks to everyone!

But down to business, Working on updates still and checking for further errors or problems looking good so far, Also seeing about the GPS fix due to all it is a a reg edit and could help other users. Juggalo is also assisting on this so thanks is deserved.
