I had to put my name on a list to be notified when it is available. I did get the RED Bluetooth already. I have no idea how long it will take for the RED phones to become available and I don't understand why they aren't available already.

My mum has one, she bought hers in September, I think. But we're in the UK so it's probably different over here.

It's a groovy phone though, I'm jealous

I have Cingular too, I don't think it really matters who your carrier is for this phone. I could be wrong but I hope I'm not because I really want this phone! You can get this phone with Cingular and I almost got the pink one but decided to hold out.

I think who you carrier does matter. Right now it's Sprint that is going to be the first to carry this phone. My guess is that the others (wireless carriers) will follow suit.. In the interview with Larry King, Bobby Shriver only mentioned Sprint as the carrier that will have it.

As of now that is the deal.. Like I mentioned it may be that Sprint will carry it first and then the other carriers will pick it up as well down the road..

That doesn't make much sense in that this is a special product to raise money for charity. I'd think part of the deal with Motorola and Red would be the phone could be purchased and any service carrier would support it. If this is not the case I'll get the pink RAZR and return the red Bluetoothfor a regular model.

We should call our carriers and threaten to switch to Sprint.

What psycho-rep told me was that they cannot guarantee all the functions on the phone will work. Like, I can make calls, but maybe not text (which makes no sense to me but whatever), nor browse the web nor download ringtones. They can't guarantee it. And I asked "Okay this is the model number...can you tell me since I gave you the exact #?" she said no. i cried. it was a rough day.

So...as U2F4F said, they prob will later. But for now I'm gonna call like once every week and push them, bc I have nothing better to do with my life.
