Well, I hope this is close enough to the passion to post in this topic. Anyways, here goes. I went into a Best Buy today to talk to VZW and to trade my Droid in on the Eris. I asked the VZW guy the usual ? and got the same replies. "Hey, have you heard of the Passion/Dragon, blah, blah, blah". "Only what I have heard on-line blah, blah, I don't know anything official, blah, blah, blah".
You see, I like others fell for the Droid Band wagon and jumped aboard on Nov 6th, thinking that I would just return it for the Dragon. At that time (the 6th) the rumors were black Fri. or Dec. 1st. I was worried on, I think the 8th or 9th when we started hearing mid Dec. and shortly there after, Q1 2010.
So anyways, I go today to trade in the Droid for the Eris in the hopes to get another 30 days to wait on the passion/Dragon and pay my restocking fee. Well what a surprise when I was told there is no restocking fee, and get this, you can return your phone at BB as many times as you want! You just can't stop your contract after the first 30 days.
So, I will be trading my new phones in until this frickin phone comes out, except I really like the Eris (first impressions).
I thought you guys might like to hear this info, and utilize my strategy of waiting for the Passion to come out.
