    Just a heads up for anyone waiting, the date has now been pushed back to 8/3 via the VZW website.

    I am waiting too (for a replacement device), and this sucks.

    This poor display of inventory management is perplexing. I probably would have already gotten an Incredible if they had their shvt together. I'm debating between the two now, but am considering waiting it out for the Samsung. Is Verizon to blame or the manufacturer? I know HTC had the issues with the AMOLED screens, but what is Motorola or Verizon's excuse for this?

    Well, at least for the DI, it was the screen manufacturer's who couldnt keep up with demand, as well as shortages of AMOLED screens. As for the X, I have no idea.

    Interesting. I will keep an eye on this as i plan to get one on 8/11.

    Just logged in Verizon's website and as of 7:57 CDT it says available 7/27.

    Yeah, I mean according to what another user said in another forum, since Moto is using a LCD screen that is not in shortage, hopefully the turnaround to manufacture them will be faster. So hoping it will be before 8/3. But then again who knows, the date this morning was 7/27 and then later this afternoon it changed to 8/3. Crossing my fingers!

    maybe the 7/23 date is for the people that ordered last week, and they have gone through the second batch already (before its even in their hands), and they're not working on the third batch and that's the new date, 8/3.

    Hmm that may or may not be the case. When I called this morning to do an exchange, the CSR said I would be getting it on or by 7/27 still, and she said that date included all the backorders and new orders being placed. The 8/3 date didnt update till about a couple of hours ago on the VZW website, so who knows. We shall see what happens!

    I'm not sure if we're looking at the same site or if time around me is just relatively slower but I'm looking at the Verizon site right now and it's still saying 7/27

    You know, with the state of our economy I wouldn't be AT ALL surprised if this was on purpose. Keep the manufacturers inventory levels as low as possible so they dont have a bunch sitting around forever. Imagine how many RAZRs motorola had laying around after they ran their course.
    Of course I could be completely wrong.

    I'd definitely like to know that too. Unless you're on a one year contract at the moment I'm not sure how that would work.

    Mind linking the site so I can take a look? Maybe I'm just looking at the wrong site. Or maybe VZW hates California?

    I clicked on your link and it's still shows 7/27 for me. I think it's just for some states like Cali.

    I dun remember if you can change the zip code or something but I suggest changing it to another zip code (77459) and see if it changes the date.
