    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.

    You could gently lull a baby to sleep in the store in Rochester, NY today @ noon.

    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.

    Not Until We're Out of Droid 2s

    I went to the store today, searched around for the Droid 3--nowhere in sight. So I played with some of the phones for a bit until a representative asked me if I needed help. I asked, "Do you have any Droid 3's?" Her response was, "No, we don't have any and we won't be selling any until we sell all of the Droid 2's." I'm thinking to myself, "Wow? Are they allowed to do that?" This was a Verizon Store in Alexandria, VA.

    That's awful. They seem to be in the business of losing money. Grab a Droid 3 off the Verizon website, pronto!

    Wow, that really sucks. After reading some of these comments about peoples stores not having them, I was scared mine would either. Especially since my city/state being Lincoln, NE. But, they did so I lucked out. Some people are saying it's 149.99 displayed though mine showed 199.99(picture I took below of the price after activating my phone). But, I still got my business discount with it so got that, a screen protector, and case for 187. If only my brother wasn't the one with the NE2.. woulda been a cheap phone.
