I drove 140 miles and arrived at the Rapid city, South Dakota Verizon store at 6 a.m. two hours before scheduled opening.
At 7 a.m. another customer arrived with his toddler daughter. He waited a few minutes then started raising hell with someone through the locked door. The employee pointed at the opening time stencil on the door and walked away.
The customer got in a long winded tirade with a Verizon rep on his cell phone. Presumably the rep called the store and 1/2 hour later at 7:30 they opened the doors.
I was ready willing and able to pay full retail for my Droid but was told that I couldn't do that by the store manager. My only option was to put a 3rd line on and pay $299 less MIR which I did.
