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

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.
