    Thought it would be cool to see actually how many people have pre-ordered the Droid phone (Moto Droid or HTC Eris)..

    I haven't decided what to do..Not sure if there will be a line at my VZW store, or if I should just call Verizon early Friday and order it though them. I never have luck at the stores, always had my success with calling in.

    I'm reading that if you go to Bestbuy to order your phone it is going to mess with some kind of new phone every 2 yrs thingy... So I still need to read up on that.. But I could go either way. Verizion pre-order or Bestbuy pre-order..

    How and where can you pre-order? I read about the BB thing, but I can't find anywhere to pre-order.

    I have a $100 NE2 to apply if that makes a difference.

    Otherwise I already have secured time off on Friday morning!

    I pre-ordered my Tour but this device I have to get my hands on immediately. I'll be out front at 6am for a 7am opening.

    Maybe I'll get there earlier. I don't like looooooong lines unless I'm up front : )

    My upgrade date isn't until Christmas. I am thinking about adding a line for my son and giving him an older phone or seeing if VZW will let me upgrade a little early, but I have a feeling that the Droid will end up being my Christmas present.

    My upgrade date isn't until NEXT Christmas haha so I am going to pay the 1-year price as soon as I can. I am getting Married at the end of November so all my money currently goes into preparing for the wedding. Once the wedding is over, I will pick up the Droid as a wedding present to myself haha. So I won't get mine until the last couple days of November or the first few of December. It feels like its soooo far away... :nerd:

    my upgrade isnt until march and im still in the new every two for $200.00 so i think its more worthwhile for me to wait.

    unless i can upgrade early but we'll have to see how that goes.

    Put your fears to rest now. The Droid is upon us soon. Even if I wasn't up for a NE2, I would still be standing in line at my local VZW Store this Friday. I just really hate to WAIT !! After all, it's only MONEY :p

    Being an vzw employee really sucks sometimes. I hope they dont delay the release for employees like they have in the past.

    thats kinda dumb you would think they would allow you guys to get the phone 1st even if its only a day or two. Just by having a phone for a day or so would allow you to answer most of the new user questions.

    It is really weird man. I know it sucks and that is kind of a knee jerk reaction being a huge tech geek but honestly, they must put something in the water, because I would much rather have you guys be able to get it than a VZW rep including myself. We have already been playing with the devices a ton, so we hopefully will be able to answer all if not most questions you have. :)

    iwould wait untill the 25th of November. You should be eligable at the point for the NE2 discount. getting the Droid as an xmas present isn't all that bad of an idea :happy:

    I have to pay full retail so I'm getting it as soon as I can get my hands on one. I wish I knew about this back in July, I wouldn't have wasted by time with the Storm.

    So I called *611 and asked them when I could pick it up for the 1yr price and it turns out that my fiance's phone is the main line and can get a 1yr upgrade on Dec. 27th. My line isn't eligible for any upgrades whatsoever until Dec 2010. Using my fiance's upgrade would be a waste because I'd rather her wait and get her NE2 with the extra $100 off.

    Other than that there is retail or open a new line.

    Can someone tell me if there are any flaws in this idea: Opening a new line is $10/mo and I get the phone for $179 after rebate. So 2-years is 24 months. 24mo * $10 = $240. $240 + $179 = $419. Since retail is $560, I will be saving right?

    Some questions that may help me get it cheaper:

    Does anyone know how much taxes/fees will be on an added $9.99 line? No txt or data.
    Is the ETF cheaper than keeping it the full 2 years?

    can't add a droid for $10, you have to add the $30 or $45 monthly data plan too...
