    VZW Phone Orders Will Ship by 12/5 With Newer OS (so they say)

    Advertisement



    Called CS to request an early upgrade to a Storm, but expressed my concern over reports of sluggish response and bugs. For what it's worth (he's just a CS guy) he said he just finished playing with the new build and personally attested to the fact that the new build is vastly faster than what's on the phones sold 11/21; that any phone ordered through telephone sales will ship no later than 12/5 and have the new OS. He said the typing is much better and the switch from portrait to landscape is seamless. Like I said, he's just the order guy, so take it for what it's worth.

    He also did me good (much better than "NO" I got the first time I called) by giving me an early upgrade that should not have kicked in until next April. Got the $50 discount to $199, and then he threw in ANOTHER $50 discount to $149 because of some status I didn't know I had. I have 4 phones on a family plan - guess I'm a VIP now

    LOL...everyone got the 100 discount that I know of because of the messed up shipping...I know I did...LOL...

    The phone is great...too bad you have to wait though...and it's almost ALL orders. I saw my sisters email last night at her store---ALL phones from 3pm forward yesterday were given a "No later than 12/5" shipping date...may come sooner, may come later...
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Its only 2 weeks - not the end of the world. Worth the wait if all the bugs are fixed I say.

    for sure...the new os will be released...who knows it could be a day or two later but probably as soon as they start shipping the phones with the new os.

    That's true!! We'll get the update around the same time as the new phones going out.

    So Wednesday I got a call from VZW, just to let me know that my order will ship by December 5. Fine, that's what I was told when I placed the order. Yesterday, an email came that my order was being processed. OK, sounds good. Today I get an email that it has actually shipped. Excellent. Nice surprise.

    Just wonder which OS build it will have.

    Bad news is that it will be sitting in my office on Tuesday and I don't get back to town until the following week. Rats.

    But I have to say that VZW was very good on the order placement and follow-up. Still great CS.

    I ordered late Friday night, over the phone. So hopefully you'll get a notice tomorrow that your phone has shipped too.

    i ordered my storm friday morning(11/21), got it monday. my girlfriend ordered hers friday afternoon and was told the 12/5 ship date. she got it this morning 11/28!

    funny she refused to do package tracking, she didnt want to get her hopes up and she got it WAY earlier than expected.

    What OS version did she get? If it's the new one, how is it working?

    same OS, .65

    works just like mine. she doesnt really like it so far, i told her to give it time, i wasnt a fan until about 3 days of getting used to it. lag aside, i think its a great phone.
