Well that sucks. I got mine at Bestbuy, and since I dont have rev a where I am, or anywhere near me, it's not even worth the aggrivation of going back to see if they'll find one (if they even have one) that says with google. Wonder if there are any other differences.

I am keeping the REV A one. I wonder if I will get charged an restocking fee.

Knowing Sprint, if it was opened and used, probably, but who knows.

RUSS 10-10-2009 09:40 PM

I can't find any differences other then that.

Mine says "With Google" in the back and I can confirm I do have Rev. A

I think its a bit early to say "with Google" equals Rev A. I read through the thread and there have only been 3 confirmed Rev A/with Google. All we need is one non "with Google" user to confirm they have Rev A to debunk this.

maybe its by coverage area. http://evdomaps.com/

search your state with the top left drop down that says "fastest downloads"

don't know how accurate it is. doubt its official. but i think its better than speculating "w/ google" having any meaning.

KAT 10-10-2009 09:55 PM

So could this mean that phones without Rev A could have slightly slower speeds than the ones that do? Or is there no real noticeable difference

ill 10-10-2009 10:02 PM

mine is not rev A... and mine does not say with google. only on the box, it does.

acs12798 10-10-2009 10:04 PM

No Rev A, and no with google. I was noticing my ping on the dsl reports speed test hung around 200 ms when it should be lower. Those ping times are the big difference between Rev A and Rev 0.

ill 10-10-2009 10:12 PM

rev a is supposed to download a little faster, but upload way faster.

i'd like mine to have rev a.. like the fact sheet and the press kit says

badutahboy 10-10-2009 10:33 PM

Mine IS "with google" and I can confirm Rev 0 on it.

I think that makes me even more frustrated than those of you who have the ones that don't say "with google"... At least yours have been consistent... I'm the first "with google" that isn't Rev A.

No kidding... I'm getting mine at BB tomorrow, if mine doesn't have Rev A I may have to ask for another one

slbailey1 10-10-2009 10:49 PM

Mine is Rev 0 and no "with Google".

JD78 10-10-2009 10:49 PM

I remembered back in the "with Google" thread that some users had different build/software versions. It was believed to be the difference between the "with Google" and not, but was later proven not to be the case.

The reason I bring it up, is that I wonder if the software version has anything to do with the Rev. A result.

Below are the two versions I copied from the "with Google" thread that people were reporting.

Build #/Software Ver.: 1.22.651.1 vs. 1.29.651.1
release-keys: CL62456 vs. CL69164
