    Today's the official release date for the LG VX9900, and I even see it on Verizon's web site (as the enV). I wanted to check it out in the store today. First Verizon store I went to (a real store) had heard of it but said it wasn't released. I said yes it was, today's the official release date. He seemed surprised and just shrugged. I went onto the next store, a big one complete with tech support area. The guy there denied that any such phone even existed.

    Verizon sucks!! What are they going to do, wait until AFTER the Christmas season to official release what should be a hot-selling phone? What are they, morons, or do they just like annoying people?

    Its one more agonizing year, but I think I should let my contract run out with my existing phones then tell Verizon to take a hike. Yeah, I know the other networks around here are inferior, but I just can't take this anymore!

    I have a feeling that they're having problems with it. From what I gather it was thrown together too quickly. See the review on it in the review forum.

    The date was pushed back 1 day because of the 2 RAZRs for $49.99 promotion the stores were running for the holiday weekend. It will be released today, officially.

    There aren't any real consumer reviews yet... because the phone just came out in stores. I really tend not to trust "corporate" reviews. I feel like they are not as unbiased as they should be. Give it a couple of weeks, and check the phone out yourself.

    I managed to find them in a store in NH (still not in MA). Unfortunately, it looks ugly and I don't like the way it opens up (won't sit flat). I was fine with how the 9800 looked. I won't be getting one.

    Many districts are not allowed to display the 9900 until their stock of 9800s is depleted. Be patient, they are going fast!

    Sorry to hear that your area had none. I bought mine on 11/28 in Rochester, NY and they were all over the place. Also in stock in Buffalo.
    I love the phone!!

    They've been in NH for a while, but still not in MA. Its rather scummy of them to on purposely pretend it doesn't exist when I'm sure they must know it exists but they just want to sell off the 9800's.

    But anyway, I bought a VX8300 so it doesn't matter much to me any more except as a curiosity.
