    So, I went through VZW "My Biz" online account to order. I upgraded, chose my plan, accessories, etc. and then get to my cart and this is what appeared (I blacked out the phone number and other pricing).

    Hope they don't actually charge you that. But if they did that would be the best CS call ever. Lol

    I cancelled the 1st order for $100k and they have processed the 2nd order for the correct amount. My account manager got a good chuckle on it.


    You may want to call Customer Service just to be sure... the phone will not function without a SIM.

    Hmm, they claimed it "should" be included or it wouldn't have let me complete the order. Sounds fishy, I didn't see anything throughout the order process that talked about the sim card.

    I wish VZW allowed bill to account for upgrades, I'm swamped with bills right now so I'll have to experience the Tbolt vicariously or hope that a nearby store has a floor modle for me to mess with.

    That's the sd storage card, not the sim card.

    My order didn't mention anything of the 4G SIM card, I figured it was just included. Was I supposed to select it somewhere?

    want a droid, that's exactly what my receipt looks like. I've concluded that they didn't mention it during the order process as it could cause confusion (average Joe may not know what a sim card is and will cause flooding of call centers), and it's possible it's different for business accounts.

    I am even obsessive enough that I went to the site as a new customer and got as far as the order checkout screen, nothing anywhere says anything about a sim card. It's gotta be included.

    I have a My Business account and that is how I ordered it, so my experience will be different and taken with a grain of salt if you have a "consumer" account.

    Woj when did you receive your original purchase receipt email and when did you receive your item has shipped email?

    I got my sales confirmation email from Verizon at 3:53am EDT and have yet to receive my shipment email. I hope I get it before 4:30pm EDT so I get the phone tomorrow (it's 1:09pm EDT now).
