    Great info!

    I noticed that they are showing "out of stock" online so must be limited to stock in stores...

    Price online is showing as $49.97 but just is "out of stock"...

    Wow, the screen is probably worth more than that! Of course next time I have an extra $50 laying around they will probably be sold out. Wouldn't mind picking one of these up since I hear the Webtop 3.0 in the upcoming ICS is actually worth using.

    Damn. Great price, would have picked one up for sure. Not a single one in stock within 500 miles of me, I just got off the phone with Verizon.

    I wonder, though, when they check stock like that, does that include the authorized retailers too? Or just corporate operated locations?

    It is just the corporate stores, but the authorized agents might not be offering the same pricing.

    I live in San Diego, CA and just called the Verizon store near me. They had it in stock, but the cost was $199.97. It was a corporate store, based on the store locator. Then I called another store and they had it at $49.97 (which they held for me).

    Thank you OP for posting this.

    Thank you OP. I just called the closest Verizon store to me and they said the price was $199. I told him I was looking at the Verizon website having done a search for bionic lapdock and it shows $49.97. He went there and sure enough, gave me that price on the last one in stock. I picked it up and definitely see the value. Just think, you can get a new Bionic for free and a lapdock for $50. Insane bargain.

    Man, crazy people are still finding these. I've called all the authorized retailers in my area as well, no one has this thing. Anyone have any idea if Radioshack or Wal-Mart ever carried them? Those are the only two places I haven't tried.

    a potential score!
    Hubby is just miles away from a store that had one left. Clerk said" You are kidding me! $50. I assure you no one knows about this and said he would hold and hide it!" I hope it is there when hubs gets there!

    as a heads up!


    VZW customer service says they cant find the lapdocks in their system anymore.
    SO DONT ASK THEM
    I got mine yesterday by calling around to ALL of the corporate stores and asking if it was in stock and then casually mentioning that it was 50$ now.
    no issues and he held mine for an hr

    I picked mine up today at the Verizon store on Boylston St in Boston. They still had a few left at 2:00PM today.

    Scooooore! Just found one at the Boulder store... will even honor my corporate discount :) just want it to watch some Netflix & Slingbox! Thank goodness for unlimited data. May be interesting with Webtop 3.0 & ICS should it occur.

    Also, thanks to the OP on this one!

    Just called my closest store, they have 3 in stock and are holding one for me. I didn't think about my discount but I'll be sure to bring that up when I go get mine. Man am I happy I drop by the forums today.

    You never call them up directly... Because the greedy store workers will lie and buy it for themselves.

    Got one! With a neat little story to boot.

    As I posted earlier, I called my local corporate store and they said not only did they have none, but there were none within 500 miles. Come to find out later, of course, this is simply because they can't look up stock. Once I found that out, I called the corporate store about twenty minutes from me. They didn't have any either.

    I had pretty much given up all hope, but when I got home from work, I remembered that my dad was up north for the night for work. I looked up the area, and found that there was one Verizon corporate store up there (this town literally extends the furthest reaches of Verizon's US coverage, it's just miles from the Canadian border). Gave them a call, and after about twenty minutes of research, the guy working called me back and told me he did, in fact, have two out back. I had them bill it to my account and my dad went and picked it up for me on his way to his hotel.

    About a half hour later, the guy I spoke to from the local store called me back and said he found just one out back and he had set it aside for me. Needless to say, I went through the whole process with the other store for nothing, as I could have gotten it right here anyway, but oh well. Nice of the guy to call back instead of keeping it for himself or another employee, I thanked him for thinking of me and calling back and explained to him what I had done.

    Granted, the work on commission and he was just trying to make the sale, but regardless, it was a nice gesture. Will have one of these things in my hands tomorrow!

    The Verizon store in Boulder had 3 left. I bought 1 and they are holding the other 2 till end of business tomorrow for two of my work colleagues. Using the lapdock now, takes some getting use to (although I am using it on my lap in a recliner ;-)

    Btw, the lapdock definitely works with the extended battery. Looks like once the lapdock is charged, it will keep you phone battery charge
