    Yup

    Went into the Verizon store in Falmouth MA

    They have them in stock with 2.2

    BUT

    the catch is that for a contract renewal the price is $300, but you can have 100 mailin rebate

    Since I had a great deal of trouble with mailins with Verizon, I chose to decline

    Went instead to BestBuy where the phone is 199 off the floor (if they had any, which they dont)

    BUT the Best part is that they do honor the Verizon veterans discount (25% off equip and 15% off service)

    SO

    I reserved one there

    NOW


    I gotta hurry up and wait

    I think he's mistaken, 2.2 not released for incredible

    Just because one store has them, does not mean every store has them.

    I live in a not so populous area and my VZW store had them long after everyone claimed them to be sold out, simply because they didn't sell that many.

    It's a matter of stock, maybe your store got some in, it doesn't mean they all did.

    I agree with your decision, although the offer is tempting. Why bother spend another $100 on an update that will eventually (I know eventually is not ideal...) come to your phone anyway?

    Good call

    You're probably right, but theoretically if it DID have 2.2, why bother paying extra for a free update?

    i think you read the op wrong. either way it's $200, best buy or verizon. the difference is best buy gives you the rebate up front, verizon makes you mail in for it, at least that's the way I read it

    Ohhhhh, thank you! I was reading the OP wrong lol!

    Ok, now if is hesitant about the mail-in rebate, I don't see the problem going with the Best Buy way. He will get the update eventually.

    As I said

    Bestbuy will give the veterans discount
    local store would not

    my net price out the door will be 150 at Bestbuy
    not as good as Costco, which is 99 and includes case

    Depends on your VZW store (manager). They have the ability/option, and often will, give the mail-in rebate(s) as 'instant' rebates but it is up the the manager. They did for me when I got my Droid back in Nov (in addition to matching a BestBuy online price on a second phone). Never hurts to ask (and make it seem like a 'sticking point.'

    My guess that BB would get them quicker is correct.

    Just talked with store who said it should be here by Friday. Thas a 5 day wait. I am next in line with my preorder

    Verizon online said that the wait would be til after 6/15 last I checked this past weekend

    Yes, BB seems to order a bunch of phones, while VZW gets them by the order. Just my take on it.
