Just got mine today from Costco. The lady said they were given a green light to sell today. It cost $34 out the door for a family plan upgrade on one line and came with extra accessories (car power adapter, 2x screen protectors, 1 carrying case). The screen protectors did not fit they were too big. So far I like it a lot. Plenty speedy , good build quality , good screen and 3d is nice. However, internet is not working. I'm not sure why.

just picked one up at Target..$49.99 seems costco has pulled it from their website.

Radioshack stores (target kiosks) all only got 1 or 2 in here in my area.

I picked up the only one this Target had.

Sorry to hear that. I just got a 2nd thrill at Costco after upgrading another line. You can call each Costco to find out if they have it in stock. Fortunately for me I live in an area that has a lot of costcos.

One other cool thing to note that buying at Costco is only $35 out the door whereas when I have purchased from at&t or staples and best buy I have to pay the advertised price yet I have to also pay the tax based on the full non-discounted price of the phone. For example I had bought an atrix for free but had to pay $60 tax (staples)

I spoke too soon. I saw on Best Buy's website that one of the stores near me had them in stock and was available today. (note that it was the store that I called earlier and they said they didn't get it today). I bought it online and went to pickup in store. They had to search the stock that came in today, but found it and I was able to take it home. Happy now!

Oh, and on a side note.......inside of 30 days was promised the Gingerbread update. So, it was said at the AT&T showing to the Best Buy crew that it will have GB soon after release (inside 30 days).

i took my charger off at 6:00 this morning. Did some facebooking, texting, copied pictures and videos from sd card to internal sd, deleted/edited some pictures and played around with the gps. I have one widget that i have updating every hour and that's the weather widget it comes with. Not using the network but on wifi. Currently im at 85%.

You guys having problems should run you battery down completly a few times before charging it. Hopefully that'll help.

Ebay sells 2 additional batteries plus a charger for about $12. I bought mine even before the phone was released.

Yea, that's what I'm doing today. I charged it up completely last night and took it off the charger this morning at about 6am. Right now after playing with it pretty good this morning, I am at 45% and intend on running it down til dead. I also ordered those off ebay last night. Did the same for my Atrix and it worked quite well.
