I always allow for delays. It has been my experience that the devices donxxx8217;t actually get to the store for an additional 1-4 weeks after the projected release date. I believe the projected date is Nov. 10.
Although Im thinking of switching to T-mob to see how their coverage in my area is compaired to Cing Cing's network. Tmobile, from what I hear, is less expencive that Cingy so I might just hop on Tmob
Before you switch, be sure to go to T-Mobile's website and enter your zip code in the Coverage Indicator box towards the bottom. It will give you a good idea of what kind of coverage to expect in your area!
