For whatever reason the last thread was locked, probably because of the debacle it turned into. The last we heard from Cliff at SprintCare was Sprint was getting ready to announce the release date of this phone. And then all went silent.
Is the phone coming? I can now buy it on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile in a few days. What's the status?
I'm sorry I was looking for Clyde, not Cliff. Can you please put Clyde on, I need more information from him about his exciting news!
Here is what he said in the last thread about the HTC One M8 For Windows:

Thank you for the update Clyde. I appreciate you confirming that the HTC One M8 for Windows is coming to Sprint, but you just don't know when yet!
This is exciting news for us all. I've been holding out for Sprint to get a quality windows phone, and I will give you guys another 2 years of my business once it's available!
A friend of mine just bought the HTC One for Windows yesterday and I played around with it last night. It's pretty amazing and Cortana is fantastic. 8.1 is a huge step forward in the OS. Unfortunately, as has been said over and over in these forums, Sprint really just doesn't support the Windows Phone experience. I have the 8xt and it's way out dated in terms of specs...and the 8.1 update seems to be forever stalled. Bringing in two low-level windows phones since the release of windows phone 8 is just ridiculous...it truly seems unless you are an iPhone user or a Samsung fanboy, Sprint has little else to offer you. Other carriers offer a huge selection of phones in every available OS.
I am afraid all of this is going to lead me to walk away from Sprint after about 12 years of loyal patronage. I'm not trying to be dramatic and I know the customer service people on here are not in charge of updates or bringing in new phones, so I am not going to engage in bashing them. I just love the windows experience and I'm tired of wishing my carrier offered me something good. There are many things I love about Sprint, so it's a move I've been reluctant to make, but I think it may be time. I will have a decision to make come January.
Well I'm happy to hear that Sprint is going to offer things to show that they value their customers, however, incentives won't keep me. It's about the phones. Not all of us want iPhone or Android. Hopefully if Sprint is suddenly going to offer some new windows phones, they announce it soon because I'm not waiting forever to get another 8xt.
