    I don't think they'll run out online. I'm sure you would be fine waiting a couple of hours.

    1. Costco's $50 membership fee is refundable if you're not happy. It's easy to get a refund, just go to the membership desk and ask. I'd wait at least 14 days after purchase tho to make sure you're good with the device.

    2. The odds of a VZW corp store being sold out before lunchtime today are slim. They have a good amount of stock from what I was told. It's not like your local corp store only has 10 units.. they have stock. Just dont wait until saturday and you should be Ok

    3. Online/Phone has plenty of stock to last through the weekend (most likely). You dont have to make your decision at 10am.. but I wouldnt wait until the weekend. This isnt the D3 which was a "bridge" release. This is a flagship device to carry them through the holidays.

    What really would have sucked is if they said they would announce the winners of the contest 14 days after release date... knowing you only have 13 days to return it.

    then CraigsList and/or eBay are your friends.
    you'll actually pay for the phone AND make a bit of profit if you sell a brand new in box Bionic


    jus sayin... make lemonade :)

    Yeah I didn't think about that. Good think they're announcing the winners tomorrow...or somewhere around tomorrow according to the rules.

    Posting this here and on the official Bionic Thread:

    Just a reminder to folks, don't forget to do any 'back ups' you may need before getting your new phone.
