    Verizon Wireless will it have it opening day from what I'm told. As for their policy....I hear it's pretty sketchy so I don't know if I would buy from them...

    Verizon is the only one we can guarantee will have it opening day. They have a 14 day return policy with a 15% restocking fee

    According to that article, they're saying you can get it opening day, but I've always thought big box stores get them 2 weeks after release.

    Don't quote me on that though.

    Edit: Holy crap, did you see the deal Costco is apparently doing? Bionic with a dock, a car window mount, an extra battery and a battery charger for $299.99

    The article actually came from the forums. In reality, you're right. Costco is getting the display units on opening day and the release will be "soon after."

    They lied to you. Bought a Droid Inc2 from Costco for my brother and they allowed me to use an upgrade and a ne2 discount.

    Oh sorry misunderstood. I had an upgrade ready. But I don't see how Verizon can tell you what they'd be willing to do at Costco. Even at Verizon it's really up to the associate you talk with as to whether they'll give you an early upgrade.

    Usually depends on how far off you are from your upgrade.

    Of course they did, it's their job to tell you to go to a Verizon store.

    My point remains, they cannot tell you whether or not a Costco associate would be willing to do the same or not.

    I'm considering getting my Bionic at Best Buy (in the past I have always bought directly from Verizon). I was wondering if Best Buy has been able to offer pre orders the week before the release date as Verizon has?

    I'm not 100%, but I believe only Verizon has the ability to do pre-orders on a new device. Even big box stores like Costco don't receive new mobile devices until 2 weeks after the official release.

    Since the mobile departments aren't owned by Verizon, they aren't allowed to sell products until Verizon allows them to.

    The best on contract deals usually comes from Best Buy because you usually don't have to wait for the rebates. They offer them with the sale.

    Target told me 2 weeks. Will probably be the same everywhere.
