    You me and a bunch of other people are waiting for that question to be answered. I go by the Windows store and two company AT&T stores on my way home every day and drop by every now and then. But nothing is in the wind. But my 820 is still as good and faithfull as the day I got it two years ago. I just hope the 640/640XL is worth an sidegrade/slightupgrade. If not I'll stay with the 820 for awhile longer.

    Me waiting too...

    I shouldn't start any rumors here.
    When the wife wanted to stop at the Homegoods store near here I moseyed over to the large T-Mobile place in the same parking lot and queried them.
    The very helpful dood in there said a number of customers had been asking about it.

    He said look for it after this weekend...I just grinned and looked around for a few minutes then went to Safeway and bought beer.
    So there ya go more vagueness about a release day :)

    It is bizarre for MS to keep the US waiting for one of their products/services. Wonder what's going on there? The norm is for products to get launched/tank in the US then get launched in other countries.

    New here. The lack of info about these phone in the U.S. is curious and frustrating. I need a new phone. I'll give it another couple of weeks and will do something else. Look at how Apple does a phone release. Then look at this. See the difference? Not sure what Microsoft is thinking or why they think the lack of specificity is good for them. This seems particularly bad given their market position relative to Apple and Android phones. You'd think they'd be sure to get this one right.

    MS always limits their product launches to specific territories. Just this time, it's not US first. Maybe they don't reckon there's a big enough demand in the US for these?

    That's a good guess and seems plausible. However I think they had an opportunity to grow market share with a predictable release and some good reviews. I also went into my local T-Mobile store last week to ask about it. The response was "What's a 640? You mean the 635? It's backordered." Perhaps more of a T-Mobile issue than an MS one, but still not good.

    Same here, I broke my 635 vrecently and could not hold out for a week so I bought another 635. I actually am waiting but my patience are running out. We maybe in the minority, but for **** sake can we have a fixed date!! It was announced at the beginning of the month last month, Tmobile teased us with a trailer that same week, and to this day as we get close to May, there's still NOTHING.
    I called Tmobile today and they had no clue as expected. I was hoping they'd spill the beans. Where is Several Potatoes! He works for Tmobile!!

    Just wanted to let you and everyone else on T-mobile know that you can order one now by calling 1-877-426-2014
    That number is from the product page on the T-mobile site for the phone!

    True, but that shows up for any phone, not just the 640. Here's a link to the Android version of the M9. HTC One M9 | HTC One M9 Smartphone Reviews & Specs | T-Mobile. Has the "Order Now" banner at the top...

    Interesting, that's good to know. I thought that something changed, because that wasn't there when I looked at the page on Sunday.

    Edit: I called the number and as jdballard said, it's just for any phone. The rep was able to find the phone but not the release date. Said that existing customers would have first pick when it comes out to order, but that's not really news. The wait is on...

    I saw the banner this morning and got my hopes up until I looked at another phone and saw it there, too. Thanks for calling and verifying, though. I wish they'd just release the thing already!

    They won't cough anything up on Twitter either.
    I whined to them 2 days ago and got a generic "monitor new releases@yadayada-blah-blah..."
    Amazing how no one at T-Mobile knows anything even when the device is showing on their website.

    Such a BS way to run a business in my opinion.
    Tease and torture your customers.

    I probably won't buy this from T-Mobile anyway.

    Why is it that the USA gets very few Windows Phones and often well after other parts of the world? We're still one of the largest markets in the world and despite the market share there are lots of WP owners here. Is it because the inherently evil carriers rule everything? I think MS could make headlines and reap the rewards by offering all of their phones unlocked and purchase direct only--no dealers and no carriers in the way. They get nothing from the carriers and almost nothing from other dealers anyway, so it couldn't be worse than now. The best place to find Windows Phones around here is WalMart, and then only the 635 at the moment. The AT&T stores might or might not have one on display in the back somewhere, usually a GoPhone as a last ditch sale if someone is prepared to walk when they realize how the 2-year contract is going to vacuum out their bank account.

    I think so.

    For a while there I was believing T-Slo was championing customer wants and needs.
    Seems like a 2 headed beast now with customer service being clueless then the corporate talking heads promising the world.

    Maybe one day another evil empire like Comcast\NBC can take over and offer cheap or freebie Wi-fi nationwide and destroy these meanie carriers.
    There's may be a large group of wi-fi only users for data anyway.

    The more I read about US carriers the more I want to run away.
    Ah well who am I other than yet another poor victim on the battlefield...

    When I had T-Mobile they are horrible at releasing any information on anything. I remember last October charging them on Twitter about Lumia cyan on my 925; all they gave me was stay tuned coming soon. They're customer service is horrid. One of the reasons why I left for AT&T.

    It's the problem with company trendy social media departments - yep, they can sit there in hipster jeans with asymmetric haircuts and "engage" with customers, but they're a long way from the people who actually know what's going on. Customers get a quick response, but it's usually pointless.
    Write a letter, on the other hand, and you'll get into a different process.

    We're still waiting for the 735 on Verizon so likely another 6 months for the 640. Lets hope they realize this is not how to release phones sometime soon: Hype a release and then not provide it for 6 months when people are then salivating over the next release.. Indefinite non purchase ensues.
