    Hey guys. I know Verizon isn't doing any pre-orders for the Droid X, and Best Buy had them twice, but no longer do. I was wondering what you think the best way to get the new Droid X is going to be? Are they going to be able to be bought online through the Verizon site on launch day? Will there be huge lines at Verizon stores? If so do we assume they are going to run out of stock immediately? Just wondering if anyone knows what is to be expected or has any advice.

    Thanks!

    If you really want an X on launch day, call your Verizon and ask what time they open...then go an hour early i say.

    I don't think there will be huge lines. Of course whenever I wait in line there is no issue and when I don't I miss out!

    And the best way to get a Droid X? I guess that's when mom gives you one :)

    Qualify what you mean by "best".

    Are you looking to ensure that you get one? Are you looking for cheapest? Easiest?

    Pay a homeless person to wait in line for your


    Easy because it will only cost you $20ish and you will get one cause he will stay in line if you give him the $20 after you get your phone.

    Getting mine.

    My daughter went to a Verizon franchise store to ask how to get the Droid-X. They told her that if I wanted it on the first day I'd have to pay in advance. So she did( she has a card on my account). They told me that they would call me when UPS delivers on Thursday. dancedroid

    Seems like you could just have Valle stop by your house and save him the trip to the store.

    I share everyone's excitement - the Droid X is gonna be one VERY cool phone. *BUT*, if a way isn't found to root it, and install custom Roms, like the Moto-Droid, it's gonna put a severe cramp in the excitement factor for all of us.

    I pre-ordered mine at BestBuy...later in the day i realized my friend owns a verizon store (franchise), so i quickly called him and told him the situation with BB. He assured me that he will contact me as soon as they get in, just in case BB doesnt get enough, ill just go to his store. I shop at BB anyways so the $50 gift card will not go to waste!

    I got in the line 2 hours before Verizon opened. I was number 1 in line. Other people showed up about 45 minutes before they opened. The line was about 30ppl deep at opening time. WHOOOHOOO! Got the Droid X!

    Another day.

    Verizon sent some out today so I won't get mine until tomorrow. But I won't have to stand in line in the heat.
    In fact I couldn't. I have no tolerance for heat and am far to lazy to stand in a long line.:)
