    Being able to use my NE2 will be great, it will make up for the cost of buying all the accessories I want for the Droid. Heck, I Spend enough every month with Verizon, they should just give it to me :D
    I should be at the TOP of the VIP chain. :rolleyes:

    Now hopefully, they planned ahead to have enough Accessories as well as Droids on hand to keep all of the excited people that will be showing up on the 6th.

    The Storm debut last year was a joke, they had hardly anything in stock. But they did have all the pretty pictures to tease you with of what THEY Didn't have.

    Yeah I would imagine esp the desk setup and the car holder for sure should have good numbers in the stores.

    I was at Verizon this evening and it is my understanding that the NE2 IS the $100 discount. You don't get that AND another $100 mail in. The instant discount will be available if you order it from Verizonwireless.com. Best Buy cannot honor the NE2 as a third party retailer (went there too.)

    Somethings not right with what you were told, according to everything posted everwhere, the rebate is in most cases a $100 debit card that is going to be given to everyone purchasing in store, new customer or old, nothing to do with NE2. Now if they are not going to honor NE2 on top of that, that would be very poor business and a sure recipe for disaster.

    I Totally Agree !! If this were true, what good is it being a loyal VZW customer. Earning the NE2. I would think they need to honor the NE2 and give the 100.00 discount they would give a new potential customer to us too.

    That is completely how it is. The 100 is not the NE2 discount. It will come in the form of a debit card, but if you order it online or at BB they just give it to you instantly instead of the debit card. the NE2 is another 100 on top of that. if they could give you the instant rebate in the VZW store and the NE2 you'd walk out with a 100 dollar phone.

    Yeah i'm not quite sure why VZW is doing a debit card system as the 100 form, seeing as the two other ways of getting it right now, online and BB, both are doing it instantly. The only advantage VZW stores have is the NE2 program. I guess they think if they give you a card you might just want to purchase the accessories with it.

    Unless it has been changed since I last heard, that is how it is.
