    Release Date?

    Anyone know of a release date for this phone? And if it will be available on Verizon?

    all that says is tentative...perhaps verizon hasnt completely tested it out yet...with verizon already carrying the Q it wouldnt be smart for them not to carry the new version....also the way that verizon lowered there price to 79 bucks for the Q means they might be trying to unload the product to bring in the new...its all speculation now

    T-Mo or ATT (Cingular) are your only options since its a GSM ONLY phone and no CDMA version has been announced. Now if Moto has a CDMA model in the mix then ok but nothing is in the rumor mill or any sites.

    Also has anyone hear about the FCC info on this yet?

    Bingo. We all know these things end up working out though. Look how long it took sprint to get the current Q, and i cant see verizon passing on this.

    Release dates on unlocked phones are subject to suspicion and change and the specs on their site are not correct either.

    I purchased the HW6515 unlocked from a UK supplier off of eBay before Cingular had it, worked great. I don't mind unlocked phones but I would like to make sure the unit that is unlocked works in the US first.

    I talked to my Verizon dealer (the manager) and he swears he will have it in my hands and activated for use on the 25th of July!:2cool:

    Hmmm....that would be next week. Lots of speculation on a Verizon Treo 755p coming next week too. Maybe Verizon is going to release a few new smartphones to compete with the iPhone.

    First off it would be the Q9M at best and so far neither the Q9 or Q9M have been FCC approved and even if the internals are exact as the original Q wouldn't it need a new FCC ID? That combined with little to no fan fare makes me say not likely.

    I'm waiting for the Q9h. I'm with AT&T now (fewest dropped calls, yeah right) and the Q9h would fit nicely on my family plan.

    I'm on AT&T.
    Got an unlocked one (Q q9) a week ago.
    No 3G in my areas, atm.
    EDGE capable. Configured for Europe (Spanish) but set US English in a few places in the settings. Opera Browser and Internet (Windows Mobile) Explorer both running.
    Call quality/dropped appears at least as good (maybe better?) than my Moto phones (KRZR).
