    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

    I work at Best Buy, at least the stores in my district don't know how many are being delivered yet. I'm 10th on the pre-order list and the inventory program says 8 are Inbound Allocated from the warehouse, but that number can go up or down you only know for sure when it says its been shipped.

    Anyways they take them in number order so if they get 8 and your in the first 8 your safe for at least the first day. The mobile employee calls everyone around 9:30-9:45am telling all the people who have one set aside from them. As LONG as you pick up the phone they are required to hold one for you for the first day, so just make sure you pick up and then you wont have to wait outside or rush to the store at 10 when it opens.


    Also I dont see anything about them delaying the realase date BUT I know they stoped taking pre-orders 2-3 days ago and most stores in are only going to get between 8-15 from what I saw, but again the numbers can change untill there actually shipped.

    Yeah...when I was on the phone with Verizon last night (trying to figure out if it's okay for me to sell my new-in-box, unactivated Droid Incredible), I mentioned to the rep that I had a Droid X on pre-order with Best Buy. He said, "Wow, you must have done that right away, because they didn't run that program very long at all". That, to me anyway, seems to indicate that there will NOT be an endless supply of these things. Why else would they stop the pre-order program, while Verizon never HAD one? Wouldn't they want to get as many units as possible pre-ordered if there wasn't an availability issue? I'm just sayin'.....
