    Sweet, I was 1 of 6 that got the phone today (helps that I work less than a mile from one).
    Got the bundle (no boxes, just bubble wrapped).
    Verizon is having some problems with it's network today (of all days for this to happen), took about a 1/2 hour for it to activate but it finally did (bet it's from all the Bionics being activated).
    Will have some playing around to do, thank god it's almost the weekend.

    When you activate through Costco, is it a third party like Wirefly or is it through Verizon?

    Through Verizon, there was also another guy waiting in line for his Bionic and he was talking to a Verizon rep on over the phone and they said that they were also having problems.

    I've had mine now for a week and a half and so far, I'm really impressed, still getting used to it though, this is my first Android phone, I just upgraded from a BlackBerry Curve, like I said, still getting used to it.
    Still debating on whether or not to root it, I may just leave it alone for awhile before I start messing with it too much. :)

    Are you guys using a skin/case? or are you going naked? It seems like it is hard to find a skin/case that fits the docks, even with that insert the docks have.

    For right now, I've been going naked, but I've been using the holster that came with it from Costco, I've been in a few Verizon stores and they still don't have any accessories for it yet.
    I've been thinking about ordering one online, but either haven't seen one that I like or can't tell from the pictures.
