    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. ;)

    fam

    the sales rep at the vzw told me if i get the phone from them theyll take 50 bucks of the top and ill still get the 100 rebate so ill only pay 150 for phone. if ur got the uo front money i suggest you try this for ur self and get that discount. i already pre ordered from best buy and since its the b day month im only payin 50 any how.

    I am not worried about losing 3G since I already used an unlocked T mobile G1 and dont get 3G. I am around wifi hotspots 90% of the day so it doesnt bother me.


    The bands listed on the phone are.

    Motorola DROID Sholes MILESTONE Android Unlocked Quad Band GSM Cell Phone - Popu
    General 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    3G Network HSDPA 900 / 2100
    HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 - American version

    I might wait and see if Canada gets a Milestone with AT&T 3G bands.

    Probably at a VZW store. BB is out due to not honoring NE2...I like getting the "rebate" live, instead of waiting, but I'm not willing to pay $50 more for the privilege.

    I'll also check out online early this morning and see if that's a reasonable option, though I very much want to have one in my hands on Friday (like I can't wait!).
