    Verizon: 170 Droid X's Shipped Early, Now You Can Officially Activate Them

    [​IMG]


    Update 7/10@12:46PM: Early Droid-X arrivals can now be officially activated! Leaked internal document found at the end of the post.

    I'm sure many of you are counting down the hours, minutes, and seconds to July 15th, and are wondering if you'll be one of the lucky ones to receive their Droid X early. Well, the folks over at Droid-Life have just received word from Verizon that a total of 170 Droid X handsets had been shipped pre-maturely.

    Thanks to a leaked internal memo, we also find out that Verizon reps are to advise those who receive their Droid X early to not activate it until July 15th. They also ask the Verizon reps to assist customers by using the following phrase,

    From this, we can surmise that you most likely will be able to activate your phone now, but you will likely be limited to doing it through the Verizon Wireless website, and not at a VZ store. Also, some functionality, like Mobile Hotspot, may not be available until 7/15.

    So, who got a Droid X early? And for those who did, have you activated it yet? Don't worry, your secret is safe with us :)

    That's what I've been trying to find out. If they aren't doing pre-orders how are people getting them early? Unless it was people waiting on the incredible, if so they deserve the early present.

    ha!!! dial *228... thats not actually an option on a droid x it calls it for you. Also you where mentioning that you cant activate it through the store? Well definetely not!!! You can not activate ANY shipped phones through the store they activate on there own when you accept the terms and condition online or over the phone while activating. Until then they remain LOCKED!

    Verizon should change the literature and get rid of the *228 on the phones that can't do that.
