    Did that too, just used your zip. Says 8/3 as well. Maybe the system hasnt been updated on your end but I dunno. Either way its a delay lol.

    I'd definitely like to know that too. Unless you're on a one year contract at the moment I'm not sure how that would work.

    HOW DID YOU SWING THAT???? Ive been trying and everyone keeps telling me no.
    I was told 3 times no. I am on a two year contract that I renewed when the first Droid came out on 11.06.09

    Early renew is in November. I *****ed that I have been a long time customer that loyalty should mean something.

    I guess I found the right supervisor and got the phone on order.

    Think of it from Verizon's and Motorola's perspective. The have to estimate demand based on a great deal of historical information, but in the end they're still just spitting in the wind and hoping to stay dry. From the words we saw coming from them in the run-up to the 15th, I suspect the came in way to the optimistic side of the scenarios that they considered, preferring to sit on a little stock than to disappoint customers. In spite of that, they significantly underestimated demand and they are playing catchup. It's likely that the factories are gearing up as quickly as they can. It's frustrating and disappointing to have to wait... I appreciate that more than you know... but I understand their point of view as well. It would be terrible if they badly overestimated and wound up having to lay off a bunch of workers because their salary was sitting in a warehouse somewhere in the land of unwanted mobile phones.

    I find this a little disturbing. How do you build up the hype for an item and then not be able to meet the demand. I bet that Jobs device always meets their demand. Shortages of supply can risk a company from loosing new business, especially those that were on the fence. I do not remember them coming up short on the Droid 1.

    Or is this a ploy to make people think that they need to rush out and get this item because it may not be available tomorrow. You can certainly catch a new person or someone that just has to have an item on the first day, but I like to sit back and wait to see what all of the bugs are before I go renewing a 2 year contract.

    Well here's a thought exercise for you. Today, before we know the actual numbers from Verizon, though we know a lot more about how the X was received than Verizon did when they were making the decisions, today try to estimate how many you would have had on hand opening day, and how fast you would produce them (50k/week) or whatever. Then when we find out the actual sales, we'll be in a position to judge just how well you guessed. The point is, it isn't easy to guess. and the more complex you make your guesses, the more likely they are to be wildly wrong. No matter how you do it, you're a lot more likely to be wrong than right, with each situation bringing its own little version of hell. I'm inclined to cut them some slack. I don't have my phone yet.

    Well I am not gonna sleep much until I get one. I ordered mine last friday and it said they would ship by the 23rd then, shortly after, I think on the 24th it said the 28th until today and it now says the 3rd. I am hoping the theory of first batch sold the second was for the 23rd and the 3rd is the next one avaliable. I want my droid x like yesterday.

    That sticker on the website is just telling you how long it might take if you order your phone now. Whatever it said when you did order it should still be operative. I take it yours hasn't shipped yet?
