Hello everybody - newbie here! We ordered 2 DX's at Best Buy last night. The sales guy seemed to know his stuff and the process was simple and fast. He couldn't say how many phones he was expecting on the 15th, but did say they received 15 iphone4's by way of comparison. We are # 12 and 13 at our store. He said he would call us as soon as he got the phones to let us know if we are in the first batch and to make an appointment to pick it up so we don't have to line up early on 7/15 and possibly be disappointed.
When I asked him if he might have a prelease phone he could show us, he unlocked a cabinet and pulled out a non-working model (not sure what the right name is for this - some type of demo). It was absolutely beautiful and although large, was in no way overwhelming. The phone fit easily into my wife's purse and also her pants pocket. In was very comfortable in my hand and I am an average size guy.
I've been lurking here for quite a while since my son got an Eris and I began figuring out what I wanted to do. I have read hundreds if not thousands of very helpful and informative posts and just wanted say thanks to everybody for their contributions in this forum. MWM
