    Yea. The people who answer the phones are the most reliable when it comes down to the operations of specialized departments in BB. I would speak to BB mobile before jumping to the conclusion that you aren't getting a call.

    I JUST called my local Best Buy and here's what the guy told me. They generally only call to make appointments when they have more than 10 people on the pre-order list. He said they only have 4 people on the pre-order list for the Droid X so they won't be making appointments....just holding the phones for those 4 people the first day.

    When I asked him if he knew anything about the delayed release, he told me that they have NOT received their shipment of Droid X's yet, but told me to call tonight about 5 or 6 to see if they came in with today's shipment, which he said usually arrives around 4pm. So the release for Best Buy MAY be delayed. He said he didn't receive any official e-mail stating that the release IS delayed, but if they don't get them in with the shipment tonight, they probably WILL be delayed.

    Yea all I can go based off of, is our district I know they all made appointments but all stores got 10, i JUST MADE THE CUT! WOOT!

    But yea, i got my appointment, buy also Best Buy Mobile, is TECHNICALLY there own store inside Best Buy, so the operators who answer the phones, I wouldn't go based off of what they say as I work in computers and they hold PC's we don't have or end up just transferring you to us anyways so at least in my store, there not the most knowledgeable people I know.

    Just spoke with the BB i pre-ordered at. As I said before they are opening at 8:00 AM for those who want to get their pre-order early. He also told me they have 25 in their possession and that they came in about 1:00PM EST.

    This also confirms 100% there is no delayed release date. dancedroid

    So those of you waiting to hear from them, be patient!

    I hate the operator in East Brunswick, NJ. He swears he knows everything and acts like I'm trying to speak to the CEO when I ask for BB Mobile.

    That guy is a tool shed!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just got off the phone with the store in Evansville, IN. They said they haven't gotten anything and they should tomorrow but even that was uncertain. I am number 2 on the list, which I have no idea as I got there the last day of the first round, but I am. They said to call back tomorrow. I'm kind of bummed now but my fingers are crossed.
