    How and where should I buy my Bionic?

    I never bought a phone on launch day and want to know what's the fastest way I can get it in my hands when it gets released. My friend told me that a lot of times Verizon stores wont have new phones on launch day so I won't be able to line up the night before. He told me I should order it off the Verizon site and they'll overnight ship it to me. Is any of this true? How is everyone else going to get their Bionic?

    I'm either going to buy it online and order next day shipping or I'm just going to call and order it. I haven't decided yet.

    I doubt I'm going into the store to get it, especially since I work all day on Thursdays.

    How to buy it: preferably with legal U.S. tender

    Where to buy it: at an approved motorola/vzw retailer.

    ^^^^

    Prolly pick it up either at best buy or vzw retail. When the D1 dropped and sears had it $50 cheaper a few days post launch, best buy honored the cheaper price. Plus they have that return/buy back policy to switch out for if the phone is a piece of **** = )

    The Thunderbolt and Droid 3 launches were different. The Thunderbolt was actually cheaper from some of the online vendors, but you had to order it with a new 2 year agreement. Best Buy and Verizon stores all had it in the first week.

    The Droid 3 was only available from Verizon online or over the phone (direct fill) ordering the first week. July 14 will be the first day for the Droid 3 in Verizon stores.

    Usually, if you want to be one of the first Bionic owners, you can order on the Verizon web site sometime after midnight on Aug 4 and get overnight shipping. If you want the best price, you can wait a week or so and one of the online vendors (Amazon ect) will usually drop the price. If you wait long enough, refurbished units become available at good discounts.

    They operate on the assumption that since the FCC filing shows the confidentiality agreement ends aug 7th...that the device will either be released prior to that, or shortly thereafter. VZW releases phones on thursdays pegging it either the 4th or 11th. This is all speculation just as all the specs have been up to this point.
