    Hey I just got off the phone with a VZ rep and she did take my pre-order.
    She said she will call me on the thursday. So who knows maybe I will get lucky. Getting it at the one year contract price which will be 269.....
    Just FYI

    I've called multiple times a day, every day. No luck...

    I find it highly unlikely that VWZ has taken any pre-orders over the phone.

    It is well known that Verizon agent training is pretty inconsistent and if you don't like the answer you get, you can keep calling back and someone will eventually help you. If they can't put a pre-order in the system, they can certainly take a note to order for you as soon as it is available in the system.

    Then I have talked to 26 lazy ones if my count is correct...lol

    I don't care to pre-order it, just seeing if I can do what people are claiming....

    Do the verizon reps get any money what so ever for renewing a contract or selling a phone and accessories over the phone? I know that in store the reps make a commission off the sale of accessories.

    What's happening is your getting a call back (if they remember) to see if u still want the X. It's NOT A PREORDER.

    See this is what i was thinking was that some of the reps are creating a sheet of call backs. So that way they get "x" number of sales of the droid x, and if they make any money off the sale of accessories or anything else, then that's just extra money for them.

    I am calling BS on this. I called VZW as well and was told very clearly that they weren't taking pre-orders.

    BTW, VZW also told me that full retail price = $569
