    I've often found myself asking why I should bother ordering my phone from a third party source. I prefer to order right from Verizon that way there are no hassles or hold-ups... but lately it seems that even Verizon can't keep items in stock and the lines at my local store are WAY too long.

    With the Droid X, it appears that Best Buy is coming in to the rescue. They are going to give you some really good incentives to order from them. What might they be? Well, how about the fact that you won't need to do Verizon's $100 mail-in rebate, instead enjoying the phone for the $199.99 price without having to jump through that hoopla.

    The best news? Best Buy Pre-Orders start today... so get to ordering! If you order with Best Buy please let us know in this thread so we have an idea of how many DF'ers will be upgrading to the X.

    Edit: Don't forget, you may be eligible for an early upgrade, check out this thread for more information: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ns/45500-verizon-early-upgrade-promotion.html

    Here's Best Buy's full press release on the situation:

    I'll get it from Big Red and walk my rebate receipt over to customer service where they will apply it to my account as they always have. :)

    I bought my Droid from BB and only had to pay $99 while Verizon was charging $299. I'll be using BB from now on. Sadly, no X for me though.

    That is excellent! I'm thinking the Droid X is for me as I really don't need the qwerty and it'll be coming out just as my AT&T contract expires. Yeah! Thanks for the info.

    But I don't need a new phone. I just got this in November you see, and I can wait until September when my new every two rolls around. Really, I can wait.

    I mean I wouldn't mind investigating the Droid X. Perhaps a nice Admin will purchase one for his hard working mods to experiment with and better help our fellow forum members.

    hint. hint.

    I find it easiest to do it all online. Mine will be $150 with NE2 discount. FedEx free overnight and free return if no likey.

    If I'll lose my phone within the first 30 days of a new contract and Asurion will give me a new one , can I return the one that Asurion gave me in the first 30 days to quit the contract ?

    Just went and pre-ordered mine. Gonna add it to my second line that is due for upgrade in August. Just wonder if I can have two Android phones, with the same main account or will that cause problems. Can't wait for mine, will sell the Droid if I have to and add some other cheap phone on the second line to avoid the data charge...

    I read about this today and think it's GREAT news. I didn't want to stand in a long line with my fingers crossed like some OTHER people did yesterday, and I didn't want to have a mail-in rebate (those always suck). So I called Best Buy today and they said I had to come in to do the pre order. So I stopped on my way home from work, hoping the list wouldn't be TOO long. I walked into Best Buy at 3:00 and bought my $50 gift card to get my name on the list. The funny thing is, they started a new page for my name....or so I thought....what really happened was that I was the FIRST person to pre order one from that store! I found that pretty amazing! Oh well, at least I know I'll get one on launch day and won't have to wait in some long a** line.....

    Just based on the interest in this phone I think Verizon and Motorola have another winner on their hands.

    i don't see how anyone could choose the Evo 4G over the Droid X... unless you need that front-facing camera., or are in a 4g area..

    Saw the info on the pre-order and went to Best Buy to order.

    Droid X for $149 after no rebate and NE2 discount? YES PLEASE!

    I was also the first in my store in Houston. Good for me, but I don't think people know about it so our pre-order numbers are going to look weak.

    Spread the word you guys!
