    yeah after your post I called one more time and was told the same, Android Platform 2.1. Sorry to get hopes up. The young sales rep I spoke with earlier sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Wishful thinking...

    I asked if he was sure b/c it was kind of a big deal. He said he was pretty sure. I asked if he happened to have one there to verify. He said, yes in fact he could run get the one from his supervisor. So he comes back to the phone and apologized and said his supervisor had left for the day and locked her office.

    I asked if there was ANY OTHER WAY to verify that info and he put me on hold to ask another supervisor. He came back and said, "Yes. The Desire does in fact come with the 2.2 version."

    So again... nothing official but it sure sounds like good news to me.
    Not to rain on your parade but he was mistaken. The Desire only has 2.1 and there is no ETA on an update to 2.2. The device actually launched today in Alltel (AT&T) markets for 129.99 after rebate with a 2 yr contract.

    Okay...Divested vs. non-divested is really screwing me up. I'm in Willmar, MN (56201), an Alltel market that is turning Verizon sometime in the future. This thread stated that my market would NOT get the Milestone. But then we did. Will we be getting the Desire? A friend of mine who works at Alltel indicated that yes, we would. But I'm not seeing it on the site yet. Why would Alltel be releasing a prime phone like the Desire into markets which are going to be switching to AT&T soon (e.g., Rapid City, SD, 57701), where the customer is going to be needing a new GSM phone after the switch any how....but NOT releasing it (right now?) in markets that are STAYING CDMA?? It just seems backwards. Why release ANY new phones to AT&T markets??

    Well, from what I can tell the desire and wildfire are up and running in AT&T markets. I personally am in michigan (Alltel going to verizon), and from my discussions with a rep at the store we are also getting a version of the desire and wildfire sometime next week (he avoided specifics). It sounds like 25th, but could be the 28th.

    Called a local Alltel store (authorized agent) and they said they just got their "dummy" Desire but no shipment of actual handsets yet, figures some time next week.

    I'm Alltel staying Alltel.

    So is it possible for one to put the 2.2 OS on it or would that void the warranty?

    I know you had posted that before, but with it dropping for AT&T figured I'd give the local guy a call and hope to get lucky.

    One thing to consider when asking why some markets are getting it and others are not is that even though we are still operating as Alltel on the front end - we are seperate companies on the backend. AT&T, AWCC/ATNI, Verizon and Element are each doing their own thing. Everything will be much more clear in the next 8 months as Alltel (AT&T), Alltel (Verizon) & Alltel (Element) are assimilated into their respective companies and only Alltel (AWCC/ATNI) remains.

    what is this new feature, and how can I manipulate it in order to make myself seem superior to those around me?

    Your phone number determines which market you are in. Try using the zip code of the city that your phone number is assigned to.
