Verizon HTC One coming August 22nd

verizon-htc-one

Verizon has announced that it’s HTC One will go live on its LTE network on August 22nd. This comes after Verizon finally confirmed the device, balking on early claims that HTC’s flagship handset would not make it to Big Red. With the launch, the phone will be available on all four major US carriers.

You can check out our full review if you’re considering the purchase. Alternatively, head over to Android Forums to see what people are saying about the phone. Verizon will stock the HTC One online and in stores at a price of $199.

    What a great phone. What an awful provider, giving us this almost 6 months later. If they had it on launch day, no brained. Now have to compete with other late year flagships. Good effort on HTC’s part. Horrendous execution by Verizon.

      It’s been noted elsewhere it’ll be releasing with 4.2.2 – so while I agree with you in general, if true, Verizon will have the only One in the U.S. on 4.2.2, which is pretty nice.

      • Evertroy

        That is not something to make someone jump carriers or anything…

      • clell

        And that wont be for very long. Because if Verizon has it that means the other carriers do too.

    • bob

      Verizon is a joke… Being a verizon customer means you’re riddled with disappointment and frustration at every turn.

      • Marsg

        That’s exactly what its like. In 8 months they have had 1 high end flagship device (Galaxy S4) , in that same time they extended our upgrade cycle, increased our plan costs by a few dollars, increased their smartphone insurance even though their insurance sucks, I have friends on At&t who get a brand new device if theirs develops any problems and if At&t doesn’t carry that phone anymore they will give you the next gen model, Verizon on the other hand will send you a used, refurbished device that might not even work properly, when my Galaxy Nexus speaker died on me last year, i had to go through 4 of them until i finally received one that was working properly. Back in 2007 when i got my first smartphone a Blackberry, Verizon sent out a OTA update that bricked my device and they wouldn’t even replace it. My contract with them is up in April, I don’t even care about losing my unlimited data anymore lol.

          I feel ya… I had a very similar situation with my gnex but it was radio issues. Just FYI I left verizon mid contract due to them not being able to provide the service I was paying for. They started collections proceedings for early term fees etc. I ended up filing a complaint with the BBB after trying to work it out with VZW over several months of getting absolutely no where. Not only did they end up having to clear my account balance they also had to refund me $300 in service fees deemed excessive due to their failure to provide reasonable service and warranty support. I recommend every one that has had or has a problem with verizon file a complaint. Not necessarily one seeking financial compensation but a complaint describing your issues so others can be more informed about Verizon’s horrible business practices.

          • Marsg

            I have filed numerous complaints against them, but I can’t leave them mid contract or I’ll have to pay the 300 buck termination fee per device and pay off the rest of the devices, it comes out to well over a grand, can’t afford that being a college student and all.

          • bob

            Ya that’s how they get some people. They suck them in so deep with fees and penalties that it’s almost impossible to ever get out since nothing they sell ever lasts the life of their contracts. Luckily my kids lines were all month to month feature phones I got off ebay. Mine was the only under contract. I left with a $200 balance I refused to pay since nothing was working and got assessed a $300 early term fee so mine was only half of yours. Was still a pretty big chunk but the BBB got it cleared and resolved for me in under 30 days. I’ve never used them before and I can honestly say I was incredibly impressed by their professionalism as well as their preexisting knowledge of verizon and issues exactly like mine. Apparently this specific office is contracted to handle all verizon claims and she said my story is nothing compared to some of the horror stories and mistreated customers they’ve helped. She sited everything from contract fraud to managers cussing customers out in a store filled with other customers. Crazy stuff…

    Isn’t it 4 months later? It released in April.

  • Craig Becker

    too little too late, for that price.

  • John Andrew Stuart

    Verizon’s logo always seems to have a way of killing the aesthetics of a phone…

  • Megatron_Don

    is Kevin back with Android? all of the posts today have come up with Kevin as the author.

    • NIGHTSCOUT

      He fills in the vacuum that he left.

  • jnt

    TheVerge is reporting it’ll be released with 4.2.2 – so while it’s late to the game, it’ll be the only One in the U.S. on 4.2.2…

  • Go Hawkeyes

    Verizon better not take 4 months ago on release the note 3 when it comes out.

    • Go Hawkeyes

      Oops, fat finger typing that should be “to”, but not “ago on” lol

  • domatau

    in other news, the HTC One Max will launch soon on all other US carriers……

  • Hrethgir

    If I was in the market for an HTC One, I would have jumped carriers already. In fact, I’m jumping carriers when I’m in the market for my next phone when my Verizon contact ends on my GS3. Verizon is so much fail.

  • BigCiX

    I think they released it late for the sake of the DNA which is still a good phone.

    • bluegreen343

      I agree. I have the Deluxe… but that’s basically the DNA without the Verizon bloatware, does everything flawlessly…

  • phinn

    This article makes no sense the HTC One came out months ago wtf? Verizon took this long to get it??

    • disqus_DRpikbA4Xb

      This article makes a lot of sense. It is just now coming out for Verizon.

  • Mark

    LOL verizon.
    The problem here is that all the other carriers are going to shift into offering this device for $99 because the next flagships will be around the corner very soon.

    I love my HTC one, I would not love my HTC One on Verizon….. especially getting on for 6 months later….

  • Alu Zeros

  • bluegreen343

    I think ill stick to my DNA

  • basschica

    So I took the plunge and preordered mine from Wirefly. It’s $50 less there than Vzw will be.
