Thats most likely because the flyers were mailed from California. The east coast will get them tomorrow or the next day.

I received my notice card here in Fort Collins, Colorado. I think I'm the first one from Colorado who has posted to this thread from CO.

I haven't seen a notice yet, and I am near Bay Area, CA. I'm not getting my hopes up anyway. Lower your expectations, and when you get 6.2, it'll be all that more exciting.

I just got my notice in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I think this makes me the second Coloradoan to post to this thread about getting the upgrade in Colorado. I have a friend on Colorado Blvd and will check with him along with another buddy in old Colorado City and a friend at Colorado College. That should confirm the notices in Colorado.

I assume DTV's post card regarding an upgrade has a slightly better chance of materializing than the $10,000,000 prize one, but I'm crossing my fingers
