    Anyone able to order online on a VZW employee account? The upgrade screen on my employee acct doesn't list the Droid. Is this typical and is this hapening for anyone else?

    Kind of a big bummer. It could be days before I can order this phone... And I have to do it online due to company policy stating employee accounts can't upgrade in the stores! And like I said, when I log in on my account, the site doesn't list the Droid as an option to upgrade.

    Just wondering if anyone else is dealing with this.

    This was the same thing that users were posting about the NE2 discount also. Will keep you updated.

    50% off the service and upgrades every 10 months with 2 yr contract pricing. The contracts we sign are binding for 1 year.

    So here's what I'll do when a customer calls in for support on the new device:

    "I'm sorry customer, but we aren't allowed to have the phone to actually get to use it and educate ourselves on it. You'll need to call back in a couple of weeks when we actually know more about the phone."

    Still not showing the NE2 discount for me, doing it either way. I have searched JUST under the PDA / Smarthphone section and also by searching it by only motorola, both ways failed to show me.
