1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Has anyone been able to buy the D3 in store?

    Called a couple local stores and they acted like I was speaking a different language.

    lol that is awful. I think it depends on the store's location and general popularity. For example, the one in New Jersey isn't going to get some of the accessories for another week or so, but the one in New York (off 42nd street and 5th ave) will have the phone available and accessories as well today. Worst comes to worst and you tried enough places, go ahead and order it through Verizon's website. You can get it within two days for free or for an extra 10-15 bucks get it shipped one day.

    I work at a mall and figured the Verizon store here would have it. Corporate store down the street doesn't have it either. Don't really want to order it online, guess I'll wait it out.

    Something is weird. I did get mine in store today, but no one there seemed to know it was supposed to be out today. Been playing and getting it setup for about 3 hrs. Big improvement over the D1!!!

    end of line...

    It's not for me so not really a big deal. Wife has a BB that I've been trying to get her to upgrade for almost a year. She insists on a physical keyboard.

    store by me had them but you wouldn't know it. No signs or ads, no accessories laid out either. I had to ask if they had accessories and they had a few in the back. :icon_eek:

    Picked up mine this morning (Lawrenceville, NJ). They only had two gel covers (Black and Blue) and the extended battery. Didn't see any signs out, they only had one tester phone out to play with and it was at 5% battery. :D

    Relatively speaking, it seems like they didn't play up the release as much as I expected, compared to other phones. Must be because of the no LTE or something.

    Found a store that has them in stock... Have to swing by there after work. It is kind of weird that they haven't promoted it at all really.

    Just stopped by the Verizon store at 42nd and 5th. Picked up a new screen protector, case, and extended battery for $50 bucks with my 25% off discount. Not bad at all. Anyway, I saw three other people pick up the actual phone itself when I was there. So I guess its selling a lot better than I originally expected it to with the lack of marketing.

    As someone in another thread pointed out, the phone loads pages really quickly. 3G is actually quite fast. Older phones spend a lot of time rendering pages. Also, 4G currently seems to be a battery hog so maybe not worth it unless you're plugged in.

    Ended up finding it a store by my house.... Pretty funny though because the guy I usually deal with at my work was filling in at that store today. Held off on getting it until tomorrow when he's back at his normal store. Said he would try and hook me up with some goodies.

    I have the Thunderbolt and usually get 6-8 hours off of full charge with average use, 4G will kill the battery a lot faster though. As with any smartphone these days though battery life will always be an issue.
