    I won't be buying from Best Buy since so many members had complaints against their customer service/return policy.

    As far as i know there is no preorder from the website. In-store only, or atleast that is what the best buy customer service lady said.

    They didn't want to replace defective Droids.

    This must be true because I have looked high and low for the link to the sale on the website and have been unable to locate it.

    I always order on VZW site. You get instant rebate that way and you also have VZWs great return policy etc.

    If you have an issue with the phone you pretty much call them up and troubleshoot for a few min then they overnight you a new phone.

    Also on VZW site use code FREEOVERNT (I think that's what it is) for free overnight shipping.

    Can't beat that IMO

    I would never buy through a 3rd party but, that's just me.

    I would have done that.....except Verizon is not taking any pre-orders yet. Maybe they will at some point, but as far as I have been able to find, they aren't now.

    There is nothing on the BB site about pre-ordering the Droid X. I just spent about 30 minutes looking and Googling to no avail. Hopefully someone will put up a link if this is truly happening.........or maybe it's all a hoax. Please let it be the first!!

    I bought my Droid on the 20th (using the New every 2) for $100 at Best Buy. I know they mentioned something about a new phone in the next 30 days that i can exchange it for that, no restocking fee, ect. Anyone else confirm that i heard that right? I'm gonna give them a call in the morning so i can hopefully pre-order it.

    Confirmed you can pre-order the Droid X from Best Buy. I just did it earlier tonight at the Best Buy in Bellevue, WA; you have to go into their store to do it, though. You pay $50 they give you a $50 gift card you use when you come pick it up, and you pay the extra $150 then.

    Pre-ordered mines today, as I was the first also. Adding a new line and I'm going to cancel my Droid line since it's under the old ETF agreement. So basically, it's like I'm paying the one year upgrade price.

    I've had nothing but bad experiences at Best Buy over the years. I won't enter another Best Buy for the rest of my life.

    Got on the BB Pre-order list this morning. They were setting up a whole station just for the X when I walked in. I was first to pre-order at this store in Santa Monica, CA. YOu can't pre-order anyplace else yet.
