    i gotcha. ask and ye shall receive!

    i have to go to verizon because my account is notated in such a way that a PERSON has to see it, which rules out online ordering, and best buy can't see the corporate notes..

    Found out I get an employee discount with Verizon. I assume that verizon wireless would be the way to go so they can issue that discount. That and my inability to trust Best Buy so far.

    What about phone? Two phone options, really, business sales and customer service sales. I'm ordering through business sales.

    Gonna order online I think. It's easier as I am expecting to be at work on Friday for 11 hours and most likely with out a break

    Same here, while I dont exactly care all that much for BB, I prefer not to shell out the extra C note up front, not willing to throw away the one I get for NE2 either. So.....here's to no or short lines and PLENTY o stock come Friday morning. :hail:

    I'm going to Verizon early but I pre ordered through best buy as well. I'm a new customer to Verizon so I will probably feel more comfortable going to direct to Verizon. If I can get one at Verizon I will just use the 50 from best buy for a car charger or something.

    I pre-ordered from Best Buy. I was afraid of missing out, even though VZW says that they are confident that everybody that wants one will get one.

    Since I am stuck with AT&T I will probably order it from a website that imports phones. I found a website selling the Milestone for $600 plus $20 in shipping.

    do your homework before you spend that kind of cash.... The phone will most likely work on USA GSM like AT&T or T-Mobile but its highly doubtful if 3G will work. Youll most likely be stuck on edge...

    Um, you should really make sure it will work. US GSM frequencies are NOT the same as European GSM frequencies.

    I'll be ordering mine online on Friday, and getting the wife a new dumb phone as well. Only reason is the phone she's getting is an online special. That, and my local Verizon store has some pretty sleazy salesmen. Short cheesy facial hair and desperation oozing from every pore do not make for a pleasant shopping experience in my book. ;)
