    I called my store today, unfortunately they aren't opening early. They open at 9, so I'm taking my lunch break at 830 and going to go see how bad the line may or may not be. She commented that there have been a lot of calls about it so they expect to be busy tomorrow. I figure if the line sucks too bad, ill just get back in my car and use *611....

    What are your plans for buying it in store tomorrow? Will you be able to skip out of work like me?

    You don't have a Verizon store or kiosk that won't be busy? I work above a mall for the Coast Guard and down in our mall, we have a booth Verizon that's going to have the Bionics in stock.

    But personally, I plan on waiting a couple days unless someone surprises me with it. I want to see if I won the Droid Does dancedroid and I want to know a little more about the Costco deal.

    My VZW store opens at 9...and at 8:30 the VZW sales guy is going to bill the Bionic to my monthly statement & put it in a bag with my name on it for me.
    Later in the day Thursday all I have to do is swing by & pick up the bag & go through the *228 activation prompts myself.
    This is the only guaranteed way I know to get the phone Thursday & not worry about the thing selling out. I've heard some people have convinced *611 to process a FedEx order today, however that involves staying home to babysit the house waiting for FedEx.
    I'm going to do my best to swing by at 9 if I can keep the work calendar free, however even if things get busy at work, I'll know I've got a Bionic waiting for me.

    I'm not the only one that the sales rep is doing this for. There are at least another dozen customers that have been asking the sales guy about the Bionic for months that he is billing the phone to account prior to opening.

    I will probably just run to a verizon store over lunch and get it. *611 didnt work to have it ordered & shipped. Lady even checked a few things & couldnt find it in her system. So, not sure how others did it that way... Hope stores order enough.

    Mine isn't reserving, setting appointments or anything and it opens at 10 am. My lunch hour starts at ten so I'm going to try to sneak out 15 min early and see if I can get there right at open.

    Alright, I called back and checked and got a reservation for 930am. He promised me there was no way they would sell out by then. Also confirmed they have the desk docks and car docks that I want to get for it. Really excited now!

    Sorry I don't understand charging to your account?

    I called and they said you will have to renew your contract and have a costco membership to get the $160 accessory deal.. The only thing is I am hoping I can exchange one of the items for a bluetooth earpiece..
