    Does Amazon work with annual upgrades? My 2 year/NE2 isn't until November.

    Mine is in August and it said I wasn't eligible for an upgrade. So I'd assume no.

    I was told you can do a 1 year at a Verizon store. Either way though I would recommend a 2 year, that way you are locked in for unlimited 4G longer.

    Getting used to its size will be interesting, though!

    Great news dude, the Thunderbolt was rooted a month ago, way before the phone even had an exact launch date! : Thunderbolt gets root and NAND access | Android Central
    Sweet. I'll start digging for the procedure. I'd like to wait till there is a procedure for a retail phone (if existing ones are on pre-production units).

    I just read on the Amazon site that mobile hotspot won't be available at launch (and thus the freeness is delayed), can anyone that has a physical phone confirm that?

    I was also told 1-year was feasible at a Verizon store today. I'm a little reluctant to re-up with them for another 2 years because I think it's still too early to evaluate the impact of all the iPhone people flooding onto to VZW. Locking in unlimited 4G for 2 years = good. Locking yourself into a network bogged down by iPhone people = bad.

    I got mine at 9am at a local Verizon store. They said I could use my NE2 upgrade discount, $30, or my corporate discount, but not both. Since it was $199 with my company discount, I went with that. I also get a discount on accessories, so I got the holster with it, for a total of $241. I asked if I could transfer my NE2 credit to another line, but she said "It's gone."

    The phone is heavy and feels solid. Much more responsive than my Droid1 for sure, but the battery does seem to drain quickly. The 4G signal goes in and out in my location, but so far I've only tested youtube video in high quality. The loading takes almost no time and seeking is very responsive. I'm really liking it so far.

    Did anybody get the headphones that were rumored to come with the unit? Not a big deal since I have several good sets, but I was just wondering.

    Running the D1 on the TB as a wifi hotspot I love it. That is greatness, I just got my shipment confirmation email from Vz, so I'll be doing the same soon!

    What is the market like on a used D1 on ebay? I'm thinking about offsetting my cost by selling. I do like the D1 though, maybe I'll just hold onto it.
