    My brother and I bought the DROID release day from Best Buy and we never got a t-shirt. I know sad. :icon_eek:

    Anyway, we decided to give Verizon a call to see if we could purchase one separately or get on list to somehow receive one. This is where it gets interesting ...

    In speaking with Verizon Wireless marketing department we were told that Verizon is not coordinating the push of t-shirts. It's Motorola and there is some randomness involved.

    Well, to make a long story short, the rep from Verizon gave us $50.00 off our plan for the month simply for not getting the t-shirt and calling and saying we enjoy the phone.

    Wow! I have to admit that this is quite unexpected and here's an extremely LOUD shout out to our support rep who made this happen.

    THANK YOU AND HAPPY HOLIDAY'S (MERRY CHRISTMAS) VERIZON WIRELESS!!! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::motdroidvert::motdroidvert::motdroidvert:

    It's good to hear, but it's a big YMMV on this one. Still worth a shot though, so kudos!

    I didn't get a shirt, but I got 10% off my bill for the next 6 months for "customer loyalty" (I've been with Verizon for 8 years). That comes out to ~$150. Yeah baby!

    Wait, are they still giving out t-shirts or was that just the initial release day? I could always use a Droid shirt...

    Some people have been getting t-shirts with coupons in the mail nicely wrapped in a DROID Does box. From what I have seen so far, most of those people, if not all, purchased the DROID on release day. I too purchased mine on release day, but from Best Buy, and have not gotten a T-shirt. It's what prompted my call to VZW to see about getting one.

    I don't think it was people on release day only. I believe I've read from others who purchased it after the release date.

    Trying to figure out who gets these t shirts may be like trying to figure out how the OS upgrade was handled.

    Anyway I didn't get a T-Shirt but I did get 100.00 credit on my Droid purchase. Since I originally bought a Storm 2 and traded it back in for a Droid I called and asked about my rebate. I didn't get any paperwork in the mail and no Visa worth 100.00. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with them and they decided just to credit my account for 100.00. Hung up the phone, checked on line and the credit was sitting there waiting for me.:icon_ banana:

    I stil want my T shirt though. I need a XX please, I'm a big boy.

    I'm wondering if the shirts went out to mostly new customers? It seems like cell phone companies in general (not just VZW) LOVE to give all kinds of nice incentives to new customers; but the customers that have been with them for a long time get nothing at all except a chance to buy a new device at a much higher cost than a new customer.

    I myself put up with a BB Storm from Feb. 09 to Nov. 09 - I didn't get an early upgrade to S2 or Droid email, and I had to pay full retail for the Droid. Even having paid full retail, I haven't gotten anything; they wouldn't even throw in a free holster. (or a shirt)
