    Maybe it's just NOT going to be released today.
    I think he meant, it should have been announced by today. Not by this time today.

    Maybe they see all the issues the 928, 822, etc have and just don't want the same problem again.

    Heh... yup, that makes sense.

    That was a result of ME being too hopeful for a release today.

    I called the Microsoft Store number again a few minutes ago. Note that none of the phone numbers the store gives you is a direct line to the actual store itself. I asked about availability of the Icon to the particular store I live closest to. After being put on hold, I was told that the local person said to check back between mid to late next week, and that the phones were not in yet. No other information was given.

    Well, the 928 "giveaway" with the 2520 just ended, so the exchange window for those devices ends in 2 weeks, which would make it.....the 30th.

    Where's the "I DON'T LIKE" button when you need it!
    Completely logical given how this all seems to work but I still don't like it.

    I don't think that's being taken into consideration. I could be wrong, but most people don't think like that.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is Infomanager? I don't work for VZW so I honestly have no idea. Thanks.

    Thanks for the info. Still no device in sight on info manager? How about accessories? See any otterbox stuff?

    No accessories either. Not a single mention of the icon anywhere. I work for vzw but I check this site every few hours because there's nothing on our system. Like I said before, the only reason I know it exists its because my manager talked to the regional Nokia rep. He was told that the 929 would be released after the 2520. No specific date whatsoever. Nothing in our stock room either for any new deliveries, demo device or accessory.

    Called my local store this morning. Associate said they had cases in storeroom but no information on when the release will be.

    I just called my local store. Associate said they have not gotten a release date. He also said that they pretty much always get release dates a couple weeks before the phones are due to arrive. Didn't sound too good on my front. :(

    Must be a slow rollout. I know that one of the Verizon stores in the NYC Metro area got a shipment of accessories. I posted earlier that I actually got to see them, and could have bought them if I wanted to.

    Anybody else think Verizon is just going to push the release date out until they can put 8.1 on it?

    Sucks and starting to get frustrated. I don't expect the phone to be released today; but it sure would be nice for an official announcement, images, video, ad, etc.

    Look ya'll need to get a grip. Verizon ain't done screwing it up with all the changes they want. Once they have it crashing 4-5 times a day it will be released. 😁

    I've been looking in the system everyday since the rumors came out, but today isn't any different. We did get a shipment that hasn't been opened yet since our inventory officer has been on vacation. She's coming back tomorrow so I'll check. I read there's a store manager here on the forums who saw the OtterBox case but I haven't seen anything on my end.
