does anyone know if you will be able to order the r2d2 phone online or do you have to be in the store to get it
No idea. Verizon is only going to have a limited amount, and I predict they are going to go fast. They probably will have some on line, but I wouldn't expect them to have pre-orders as they have had for other devices in the past.
Just taking a guess really.
