FWIW, this morning I did notice that gs0b's post was marked as the solution in this thread and then that check-mark disappeared an hour or so later. It wasn't the OP's imagination.
I did receive an email this AM telling me a Verizon admin had marked my answer as a solution. It appears to be unmarked now. I suspect because the OP clearly didn't consider my answer a solution. That's fine with me.
Anyway, this is rather academic. Marking a post as a solution doesn't change anything. "Solved" threads can still have posts. This isn't a place for people to get answers from Verizon, and if the OP thought that have a solution would prevent an answer from Verizon, that is wrong. Verizon simply isn't going to answer any question in this forum; be it marked as a solution or not.
The point of marking a post as a solution is to make it easier for other people to find helpful information.
If the OP still has questions, I suggest he or she post a follow up with the understanding that any replies will come from other users, not Verizon. If the OP wants an answer from Verizon, they should call or chat with Verizon.
i was really hoping for someone from verizon to answer, and yes i know these are community forums
Verizon doesn't answer any questions here. Some specific issues are escalated to support and the moderators edit posts to keep things polite, but you'll never see anything else. You can keep hoping for a Verizon answer here, but you will never get one.
If you want an answer from Verizon, you need to look elsewhere. If you haven't called them yet, you might want to try that. Maybe there is something in their database they can share with you. Probably not.
Your best suggestions remains to be what TomH309 said - try talking to the techs on the street. They may know the schedule. You still need to take what they say with a grain of salt, because another department might change the plans later.
In short, my original answer still stands; you won't know when it's available until they start selling it.
