    I was wondering the same thing myself. I am going to call up the verizon store closest to my house today and see how many units (if they know yet) are going to be shipped to their location. I would hope it's quite a bit.

    My guess is that they expect to have more then enough stock on hand to meet demand. Is that a testament to Motorola's ability to build a ton of units in advance or the demand won't be that of an iPhone.

    Combination of both probably.

    I remember seeing pre-orders for this new phone. I will have to check on it again and see if I can pull of a link that says pre-order to get your new phone or you might miss it. I will repost when I find it. hmmmm :)

    I guess I was wrong. I do see where a lot of sites say pre-order but there is nothing there. I also read that someone stated they saw on the verizon site that there will be no pre-orders available for this new Droid phone.

    I went to the store this morning to pre order............

    sorry, no pre orders. The salesperson indicated that it was his opinion that there would be plenty on hand as the Storm 2 hit the shelves yesterday in huge quantities. I knowthe demand for the two phones will be very different, but he thought there would be enough available. After all, we are in the middle of a huge *ss recession right?:eek:

    Yeah that's what i figured. Most stores would be getting a huge a** quantity of them. Verizon wants it to be a huge hit and if quantity is an issue they will be really pissed. (users that is)

    Yeah alot of the new phones are like that. I'm quite sure that you won't be able to use the new every 2 for the moto droid either. But i don't see why BB would be accepting pre-orders since their phone has already hit shelves.

    I read that somewhere, but don't remember where I saw it. I'll be going to the Verizon store to see if they expect a good supply. I'm not one of those guys that will camp out in order to get something, but I'm looking forward to next week.:D

    You are able to use the new every 2 on the Storm 2 and you will be able to use it on the Moto Driod also.

    Confirmed you can use the New every 2 on the storm 2, so you should also be allowed to use it on the moto droid also.

    Any concrete evidence on what the new every 2 discount is going to be on the droid? Just gave my BB a call and they are taking the preorders plus instantly discounting the mail in vs screwing around paying and waiting for the Visa, if its not much, worth it to get it from BB and be out less money up front.

    all new every 2 discounts are always 100 now i believe. I think they changed it awhile back. (not 100% sure on it, just remember reading it somewhere) so it should take another 100 off the price. so if BB would honor that i would buy it there instantly.

    As I stated in another post, they told me today at Verizon store that I will be getting the New Every Two discount for 100 bucks. The only thing is that I didn't ask how that will be applied. Guess it doesn't really matter. Second phone will not get the discount. Sucks.

    so $100 mail-in (or however you do it, depending on where you get the phone from) AND new every two $100 discount should put you at $99 right? that would be sweet....
