    I saw a post similar to this but not exactly what i was looking for so I figured i'd start my own.

    How many phones are Verizon stores going to get?
    How early are you going to show up to get one?
    Does having an appointment really do anything?
    If you don't get one on the 15th how long will you have to wait?
    And lastly... Are you as excited as i Freakin am to get this Droid X!?

    I spoke to an agent at my local store in Alpharetta GA yesterday. They are one of the bigger stores around Atlanta and they are getting 130 phones he said.

    I don't know any of the other answers, but I told him i may not be able to get there until lunch because of my work schedule and he thought i would be fine, but urged me to come as soon as possible.

    I have been using a blackberry pearl for almost 3 years so i consider this my first real smart phone and because of that i'm very excited! dancedroid

    1) Now you'd have to be a psychic to figure that one out, but someone did say that there store got like 70 in the other day.
    2)im prolly just gonna go when they open..
    3)im sure it does, i mean, in my eyes it guarantees you a phone
    4)Prolly 2-3 days, for shipping, they will order it for you, and ull prolly get it monday or tuesday. This isnt the incredible!

    That would be awesome if you only had to wait 2-3 days. Cause i was kind of comparing it to the incredible thinking the wait was going to be crazy long. I'm just waiting for my dad's business to switch from alltel from verizon so i can get this thing (praying that we switch by the 15th):rolleyes:

    Awesome! I live in sarasota, real close to usf, in fact, i'm going to school there next year. How big is the store there though? Is it a huge one?

    But all in all it sounds like this thing isnt going to be as hard to get as the incredible.

    It is a medium size store but they sell everything. I live in St. Pete, I'm in the EE dept. if you have any questions (about USF) send me a PM and I'll try to answer them for you :)

    We have 4 corporate stores here in Columbus, GA. The largest one is getting 107 in for the 15th. I can't make it at 9am when they open but the sales rep said he would set one aside for me.

    Lucky you. I talked to my local store and he was like "I have no idea how many we're getting and it's all first come first serve." So i asked about an appointment and he told me there is no such thing. Thanks Mr. Verizon rep.

    And Dangerous, I'm not sure what you're trying to say... Can't tell if that's sarcasm or not.

    OT.. (or maybe on topic).

    Ya.. Sorry, i have a warped sense of humor and sometimes have to walk away or be banned..

    there is a thread where a person who is Deaf was wondering if he could get a discount cause he didn't need a voice plan. The thing that kept going through my mind was....
    He's on the "Can you hear me now" network... I try to take the humor side even if it could be taken the "wrong way".

    anyway... I'm getting Excited (not to your Topic) about the release of this phone in 4 1/2 days..

    Yes, you never know when humor will be taken the wrong way, and the topic hit me the same way. But, now we are watching you ;)

    I've heard that the stores are all getting some, and once those are gone it might be a while until more come in. "While" is undefined. It could mean the same thing as "soon" and we know how long that can be.

    Haha, it's totally cool with me. Didn't take it the wrong way, i just forgot that my topic was "How hard will it be". So now that i understand, it makes sense and is quite humorous :biggrin: And hopefully a while will mean only a few days because it's beginning to look like my dad isn't going to be switching our plan for another week or two :mad:
