So even though Sprint has come out and officially said
the reason for the LG Rumor's disappearance is the "high sales volume" of the handset, it doesn't look like anyone's really buying it -- and there's still a lot of credible chatter out there that firmware-resetting keystroke bug
is indeed the real reason the Rumor went MIA. Although there's apparently a fix on deck, Sprint still hasn't decided on when to release it to existing customers -- we're assuming that its inevitable popularity is causing fits at Sprint HQ.Update:
PhoneNews is reporting that the update is now available to Sprint Rumor owners under Menu > Settings > Others > Update. It'll be interesting to see how this affects the Rumors availability.
