Update 7/10@12:46PM: Early Droid-X arrivals can now be officially activated! Leaked internal document found at the end of the post.
I'm sure many of you are counting down the hours, minutes, and seconds to July 15th, and are wondering if you'll be one of the lucky ones to receive their Droid X early. Well, the folks over at Droid-Life have just received word from Verizon that a total of 170 Droid X handsets had been shipped pre-maturely.
Thanks to a leaked internal memo, we also find out that Verizon reps are to advise those who receive their Droid X early to not activate it until July 15th. They also ask the Verizon reps to assist customers by using the following phrase,
From this, we can surmise that you most likely will be able to activate your phone now, but you will likely be limited to doing it through the Verizon Wireless website, and not at a VZ store. Also, some functionality, like Mobile Hotspot, may not be available until 7/15.We apologize that you received your Droid-X prior to the official launch date of Thursday 7/15. We are currently investigating the early ordering and shipping of your device. However all of the proper network provisions for the Droid-X will not be in place until the official launch date.
So, who got a Droid X early? And for those who did, have you activated it yet? Don't worry, your secret is safe with us
