    Our local store is a retail store and i was in 2 weeks ago and asked if I could put my name down for the X when it comes in. So they wrote me down. Today I get a call from them telling me they are only getting 1 Droid X and they cant sell it to me since Im already a customer. They HAVE to sell it to new customer only. What a crock! Now I have to order online and who knows when that will get here...

    retailers are crooks, i used to work for a verizon retailer, and i was treated like crap, we sold used phones as new, and refurbs as new, it sucked there i cant believe i lasted one year there, i never once got a 10 or 15 minute break, anyway i work for tmo corporate now

    back on topic yeah they tend to do that because you as an upgrade are not worth anything to them(and im not saying this about you) just from experience

    Well that only makes since.. they (vzw) already has your business. If that is the only device that they have. It makes since to make sure it is availble to someone that is not a customer. The whole point of selling cellphones in this industry is to create new business. Plus the company would make more off an new customer as to get paid for retaining a customer.

    Might be the case for the company you worked for. I happen to work for a really good retailer. Not all are the same.

    You should report the shady dealings of your old store Cromo..I think they could be charged with fraud.

    i wanted to, its not fair to me that i had to lie to customers and such, the only thing is ive heard that reporting employers can lead to future job difficulties

    The one thing that irritates me here is that I am currently on an Alltel plan. My friend that works at this retail store asked the regional manager if she could sell it to me if she had me switch over to a VZW plan and the answer was still no. My town has 5,000 people in it and its in farm land. I highly doubt a "new" customer is going to come strolling in there wanting to get a droid x, so there it will sit on the shelf forever, but I could be wrong.

    They want a new costumer to buy it because they get a commission if they register with VZW

    Threaten to leave verizon if they don't sell it to you, then they'll be losing business if they DON'T give it to you!

    The police will probably keep your identity secret, it's not like your filing a lawsuit or anything that would publicize your name.
