    Also, if you search for a VZW store....you can see if your local store will open early...will be highlighted in red with a footnote that it's a special time.

    Example:
    Regular opening store shows no red highlighting

    Oh shizzle!!!! Mine seems to be opening at 6am!!! Might go to Best Buy anyway, though.

    I am seriously going to be depressed if I can't grab mine on Friday.

    I would imagine the exact units would vary depending on store size, I have heard that VZW is stating there will be enough units....

    Now, if they can just define the word "enough"....

    1 Dowtown Chicago store has around 140, and they are holding 2 for me, and two media docks-wouldn't even sell those early unlike some stores.

    Hicksville LI store open at 7am.

    I read a thread on Crackberry where most stores are getting at least 200 and considering how long it takes to serve each customer I don't think being at the store early is needed.
