Re: when is samsung captivate glide becoming available at att stores

Yes ATT!

When is this phone going to be available?

It was announced nearly a month ago now.

Where is it?

 

Can one of the ATT employees on here answer this question please?

as of 11/11/2011 there is still no market release date or status, market release comes from the manufacturer

I doubt that Samsung sets the date...

 

ATT announces the device, ATT sells the device, ATT should frickn know when the device will be coming out for consumers BEFORE they come out and announce things!

 

If I bought the device from Samsung, I would be asking them when it was coming out. But I don't.

I am forced to buy it from ATT (or authorized ATT sellers).

So ATT, WHERE IS THE DEVICE? WHEN WILL IT BE OUT?

just a couple of days ago Samsung posted pdf manual on i927 page ready for download..so it could be that ATT is taking it slow to make the phone available for purchase..

That is no indication of being market ready, the manual can be done 6 months beofre the phone is run off the assembly line, The manual is created when the features are locked and the phone ghoes to fina manufacutre release. When you see a market release date on the device then the carrier release date will be not to far behind it.

then if there is a manufacturing problem and the devie is delayed everyone will be crying foul that att is holding back.

sources that you have provided i consider to be content farming examples and not worth any attention..they even have basic specs about the phone mixed up.. compared to information on Samsungs official site..

Also, all 3 articles you quote there are dated Oct 10th, yet ATT moved ahead with the Captivate Glide announcement on Oct 11th (along with 4 other new android phones), giving the impression that all 5 new phones would be released very soon, or at least before the end of the year.

 

While some of those other phones have been given release dates & then released. This one has not.

If the phone was delayed, why no release from ATT on this info? Do they even talk to their manufacturers?

 

What is the thinking at ATT behind this? Is there even any thinking at ATT?

Or are they just ignoring these facts about an announced product?

 

I'm not asking for a new phone tomorrow. I just want to know when it will be available, but ATT cant even provide information about  that...

I'm already disappointed at the complete lack of news that followed the announcement.
It has now been a MONTH since the announcement, and ATT is still silent on this allegedly "new" phone.
At this point, there is no feel good bonus. Only more disrespect for a company that has failed yet again.

oh well, guess we disagree on the meaning of disrespect - no information on a cell phone can easliy mena - Hey we don;t have anything to report yet.... but it is just about priorities and attitude I guess. Depending on the time you check between 93 and 100 million customers seem to disagree with the statements

ATT should also announce the iPhone 5 while they were at it then! After all, your excuse of  "Hey we don;t have anything to report yet" could be used for that phone just as easily.

So I expect to see the iPhone 5 "coming soon" announcement from ATT next week then. Don't let me down!

 

if they had no information on a new cell phone, it should not have been announced. period.

Suspect they will when apple announces that the mythical device actually exists outside of someones dream world. There is a slight different between announcing that the company will carry a device that is being manufactered as compared to one that is only in the mind of people. /rofl look at all the screaming that was done when people assumed that Apple's big announcement was the Iphone 5 and it turned out to be a modication of a current device

 

Sorry every business in the world pre-announces product with no delievery date and in some cases they will even take pre-orders. Ford has already announced and shown pictures of the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with a 600HP powerplant, yet there is no release date on it. So by your theory it should not have been repleased because they have no more information on it. I want it now! It has been announced by the company so it should be avaialble

 

This is a mobius discussion, have a good day.
