    Thank you. I may have to try to get it from Best Buy then. I like not having to wait for a rebate and i have a 15$ coupon i can use there too.

    I dont know then. Thats what they told me. I was just going to cancel and go to best buy, but they asked what phone I wanted and I said the X. They told me they were offering pre orders to people who wanted to make the switch.

    Didn't anybody learn from the Incredible? Don't pre-order. Wait until Wirefly launches it at midnight the 14th.

    BB re-opened their pre-orders for the X today. I went in to pre-order but before i did, i asked if this will be for the 1st batch or the 2nd batch, he said he wasnt sure, because he doesnt know how many he will be getting. But when i asked him to check how many pre-orders he has in total, and there was only 4 pre-orders, i figure best buy will get more than 5 for each store, and he too told me that they most likely will get more than the pre-ordered. So yeah, i did the pre-order, deposited 50 bucks filled out some form, and i was out of the store. I just have to wait for their call to come and pick it up on release day.

    Hopefully im on the first batch.


    Mike.



    Oh yaaay for me, this is my first post.

    I officially preordered my X. But be aware, some BB may not have all the correct information about preordering. I went in to the Mount Vernon BB and was told they're not taking it. I went home and called the same store and they said they were taking them. I went in again and spoke with the person. At first he said they were, but had to confirm whether or not they're taking it. I overheard him say to someone on the phone "i see we're taking the preorders, but I don't see an email saying we're NOT taking preorders". Plus I saw a form that said "Preorder the Droid X for $50: Offer ends 7/14", but not wasn't enough confirmation for the associate. After about 10 minutes and some confusion, I got my preorder and a $50 gc. I seem to be the first one that preordered at the store.

    But I have a question, can I use the $50 gc on the day of the launch, making the balance of the phone to be $100 or is the balance still $150?

    Hmmm, I just got an IT job with a big company. I'll need to be on-call.
    Do you think they'll pay for my phone and service? I've been out of the workforce so long I don't know how common this perk is.

    Pre-order does not guarantee you a device....Read the fine print.

    Since BB does not guarentee your preorder (read fine print) they have to sell you something to take your money so they put your name on the list of preorders so that they call you as stock comes in. Your $50 "deposit" is put onto the gift card so that they technically sold you something and can count the revenue.

    so when you go back in you can either pay $200 or you can use your gift card to lower the amount to $150. your choice.

    They told me that the $50 deposit is not refundable if i decide to cancel my pre-order. They did say that you are not guaranteed a phone during release, but i figured 5 pre-orders best buy has got to get more than 5 on release date per store.

    Probably but the bad news is you will probably have to get a phone they choose usually blackberry or winmobile. neither android or ios are "allowe"allowed" on our network.
