    I went to Best Buy (Cleveland/Akron area) last night to look at the mock droid x (looks and feels great) and the mobile rep said that they may not even launch the phone on july 15th. It may get pushed back a few days because they will not receive shipment in. He also said that verizon stores will be the same way in the area. I didnt believe him on the verizon stores but i could believe that best buy may not be ready by the 15th. I noticed this morning that the Best Buy ad did NOT have the Droid X in there advertisement like they did last week. I would assume they would promote it the week they are selling it....

    Anyone else hear anything about this?

    I hope not... im 4th on the first wave of pre-orders...

    which one are you referring to? i preorderd mine at the one in youngstown a week back but havent checked whether or not theyll be ready

    ill be pretty heated if they dont have them on the 15th

    also, come to think of it, they might have just taken it out of the ad bc they probably wont be selling any that day - just dealing with the preorders.

    I've heard from my BB and two different verizon stores that yes, the 15th may not be the actual release day. BUT they both assured me that the day verizon gets them, BB will get them too.

    So it's not about BB not having them, it's about your market not having them.

    Also they've said if they don't get them the 15th, it should only be a couple of days at the most before they're in.

    Spoke with the BB I pre ordered from and they said the 15th is the actual date...


    IDK what's the deal with the other ones, but it seems the 15th is a real release date.

    Hope so!

    Check this link out:

    Wirefly to Sell DROID X by Motorola Beginning on July 15

    If wirefly is going to have them I doubt that everyone else, including BB and VZW, won't.

    When I went in on Saturday to buy some stuff and check on my pre-order status (#1 on the list), the rep I talked to didn't indicate any issues with the release date. He didn't know how many phones they were getting yet, but said he expected them to sell all of them the first day.

    when will they know how many they will get? its three days away and they still have to call us to set up when to pick them up.... i would assume by now they should either have them in or an idea of how many they got.

    thats why im worried they might push it back.

    then again.... ive assumed wrong before. ha

    When I pre ordered I was told come in anytime that day.

    I don't think they will be calling you at all.

    My best buy (and from what i read other member's as well) stated they would call us to let us know our Pre-order came in. im 4th so i would hope there would be enough but if i was # 25 i would be leery if i just walked in on launch date and didnt receive a phone call.

    I'm first at the one I pre-ordered at so I am not worried as well, but when I went in at that specific one I was told that we were to just come anytime during the day of launch.

    Now that said, I am showing up at 9:00 AM, but my point is that I doubt that this one, and possibly others, will be calling their pre-ordering patrons.

    EDIT: Just spoke with my BB. They did confirm they will call once they receive the phones. I misunderstood when I placed my order
