So does anyone know if you the upgrade price inside the store will be the same price as the one online ($200-$209)?

I got mine at 199 at the Verizon Corporate store. I got $50 off for my job discount. Without it is 249.99 for two year.. 319.99 for one year..

I just visited my local Verizon store and was told that they couldn't honor the $209 online price. I ordered online. I guess I can wait another few days; it's only been 39... and counting

And the charge that came with the phone is now gone.. time to charge up for the first time and give this thing the real test.. for those that care I have been using non stop wifi hotspot, 4G, txt, email, borwser for the past 2.5 hours.. so not surprised it is ready to charge up now..

I was told you can do a 1 year at a Verizon store. Either way though I would recommend a 2 year, that way you are locked in for unlimited 4G longer.

...Free mobile (4g) hotspot till 5/15 is sweet. I live in NYC (4g coverage available), so this should be great. I figure by 5/15, we should be able to root the phone, and I'll install WiFi tether (same as I'm using on my rooted OG Droid).

I'm a productivity user (ie not a game user) so this phone should be great for me, plenty fast, lots of space; I'm really excited about the new device.

Getting used to its size will be interesting, though!

Great news dude, the Thunderbolt was rooted a month ago, way before the phone even had an exact launch date! : Thunderbolt gets root and NAND access | Android Central

Sweet. I'll start digging for the procedure. I'd like to wait till there is a procedure for a retail phone (if existing ones are on pre-production units).

I just read on the Amazon site that mobile hotspot won't be available at launch (and thus the freeness is delayed), can anyone that has a physical phone confirm that?
