    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.

    How well is BestBuy's return, exchange, and repair policies? Also, how are they compared to Verizon's? Just wondering because I still haven't decided between the Droid X, Droid 2, and/or whatever new Droid is coming out this fall.

    What's the big thing about pre-ordering? You can get it overnighted from VZW so you'd have to wait an extra day or so. That's it.

    Also, this is Motorola here, not HTC they will be properly stocked all over. The Droid was a hugely anticipated item and I didn't hear of anyone having a hard time getting one.

    I would wait a week before I'd order from BB or Wirefly or Amazon or Walmart.

    Use VZW online....you'll thank me later.

    yeah dont worry about your local guys, you know the ones that buy from your companies.... when you buy from the big boxes and online you just take money out of your community.,.. just dont ***** when that local guy doesnt buy from you cause he is out of a job and then guess what... if they dont buy from you then you dont have a job and then that leaves everybody with a sweet phone and now way to pay for it.. Keep it local guys its only 2 weeks you wait for a rebate.

    The way I look at it is that it's not the consumers who are pre orderiing at Best Buy who are screwing the "local guy" (BTW, isn't my local Best Buy a "local guy" too?). This is absolutely something that Verizon themselves could easily control by allowing their authorized stores to pre-sell prior to, or at least at the same time as the Best Buy. Am I missing something here? And why would I want to mail in a rebate or wait for shipping, etc when I don't have to? If I really felt it was helping someone "local" more than it was by buying it from my local Best Buy, I might consider it.....but I just don't see it.

    Best Buy is not a "local guy" it's the giant box that puts the local guys out of business.
