    Pre-order? Buy Day 1? Wait a couple weeks to see the reviews and maybe a price drop?

    Which are you going to do?

    I'm gonna wait until it gets ICS before I buy it. If I get it before it gets ICS I won't be able to restrain myself from trying to root it and most likely mess it up due to my lack of experience rooting phones that have a locked bootloader lol.

    I am going to resist the urge to pre-order... i'm not sure i'll be successful. I really should do a hands-on with the keyboard before i buy.

    No preorder...maybe release day if I can get my hands on one to check-out. I still may wait until next year, My OG is working fine.

    Same here. I will be very tempted to buy on day 1, but there are so many advantages to waiting, namely:
    - ICS
    - price drop after the holidays
    - larger selection of cases/accessories

    Q: Are Verizon stores accepting pre-orders for the Doid 4 yet?

    I'm sick of AT&T and my iphone so I'm planning to move over to Verizon and the Droid 4 as soon as it gets released (Nexus Prime is too large and I'd prefer a keyboard over the RAZR). I from my other friends in the Bay Area that network coverage is FAR better with Verizon. Finally, if I decide I don't likek Android, I can always scurry back to Apple if necessary.

    For that matter, is VZW accepting D4 pre-orders? If pre-orders are being accepted for the D4, that is a well-kept secret. Normally VZW sends me notices of all pre-order events, and it has been quiet on the D4 end.

    Wait and buy. I never buy phones when they first come out. I let others be guinea pigs. :biggrin:

    For some reason, Verizon didn't take pre-orders. I ordered mine just after 8AM, eastern time, and will receive it on Monday.
