    Switching from iPhone 4 to Droid X, how and when to pre-order

    I have up until 7/24 to return my iPhone 4 w/ the lousy reception issues. I see best buy doesn't guarantee a phone if you pre-order with them. I also see that Verizon isn't pre-ordering. How should I approach this? They may not have them available until after 7/24, then I would be outta luck.

    I would go down to the verizon store and talk to a customer representative, and they should be able to get you all set up. Do u have a contract with verizon yet, also, when u go down, ask them about discounts you can get, like I work at mcdonalds and I get 18 % off my bill every month, just a tip....

    I have a feeling you'll be able to get one. Motorola isn't like HTC, they have their stuff together when it comes to inventory.
    Basically though, you can pre-order it and you do have priority over walk-ins. Though with Best Buy, I believe they call the day before and set up an appointment with you to pick it up. You can take your chances with BB, and have a strong chance of getting one, or you can wait and see to get it with contract from places like Wirefly. They usually start selling it just a few days after its release and sometimes a little bit cheaper.

    Might not. Apparently they were saying Verizon was starting this week though. I wouldn't be surprise if they did, doubt they'd have no pre-orders. You can call and see whats the deal with that..

    I know for a fact that best buy is taking preorders, but I'm not completely sure that verizon is taking preorders yet, but u can wait on july 14th at like 12pm at nite and wait for the store to open. I just googled if verizon is taking preorders but I didn't find anything conclusive, ur best bet wood be to talk to a customer rep

    Samsung is at fault for the Incredible debacle, not HTC. Samsung isn't making enough screens for everyone. Just thought I'd mention it, though I don't know why on this HTC-hating forum, lol.

    Store Manager

    I would find and talk to the Store Manager at Verizon, not a sales rep, and tell him that you want to switch and let him know you are kind of in a box, re: time. I am sure he will take care of you. He probably can't promise anything, but if you are there on 15 July, real early, I bet you get one. Good luck. Can you hear me now?
