There's not a 30 day return period anymore. It's only 14 days now. It changed when the iPhone 4 was released.

Yeah, I think the corporate stores do that. But if you decide to buy from a place like Costco, you have a 30 day equipment return or exchange policy. The initial 14 days are considered the period where you can return your equipment and also get out of the agreement you signed. They also have a 90 day exchange policy for phones. So after the 30 days is up, if something goes wrong you can still exchange it for the same phone. I heart Costco. lol.

So maybe it's ok to get the Thunderbolt at a store like Costco if you want to take a chance that the Droid 3 would be out within 30 days and you don't plan to cancel your agreement.

I can't wait for this phone.

No runway left to change the device, if releasing in July... Things are not adding up though, since leaked benchmarks had the D3 with an OMAP and BMXXX (correct?- the mystery Moto dev) mentioned in a post it had a TI chipset.

Aint' addin' up I tell ya!

If the D3 had 16gb internal I would consider it. The KB would be handy for game emulators

Still, if the Tegra 2- will the D3 have the same low ram issues, audio pops and random reboots?? Like the DX2 has.

If same set-up, the D3 could be the same issue ridden mess the DX2 is, but with smaller display and a keyboard.

Added: Here is a good summary of why I am confused and the pics do not seem to add up (unless Tegra 2 in Asia and not NA). I think the OMAP rather than the Tegra 2 would be better, due to the issues the DX2 has. The key seems NOT to have the low ram issues the DX2 has.

If it is running the same half-ass build of Froyo that the DX2 is running, then likely it will. The problem isn't the hardware, it's the software configuration. With no GB build for the DX2 out yet, it leaves me with little hope that the D3 will come stock with GB if it is indeed running the Tegra 2.

The Droid 3 is running a newer version of Blur that's supposed to be on top of Gingerbread. And every leak and benchmark of the Droid 3 has shown it running an OMAP processor, not a Tegra 2. It seems odd for the Milestone 3 to have the Tegra 2 and the Droid 3 to have the OMAP, but I guess stranger things have happened. Hopefully we'll get an official announcement on the Droid 3 in the next couple of weeks.

The people saying Tegra are basing it on a photo that had a game with the Tegra logo on it, somebody just did a sloppy photoshopping job that's all.

Trust the benchmark data dumps: Droid 3 / Milestone 3 is OMAP4 with 512MB RAM, 4" qHD screen (same screen as Atrix), running Gingerbread with the newest Motoblur.

You are correct. The pics are NOT from a real device and I wish I had previously looked at the pics on a bigger display than my Incredible (I am now- 24").

Usually verizon and best buy launch at the same time or even best buy before verizon sometimes.

With all the rumors of Verizon changing their data plans on the 7th, I'm gonna be buying an X2 next Tuesday so I'm guaranteed a phone that's better than my Ally, while still maintaining unlimited data.

Then I have to hope and pray the D3 actually DOES come out within 14 days of my purchase, and which point I'll swap over to the D3, maintaining the "new" plan I start with the X2. Otherwise, I suppose I'll be a new X2 user.

With Verizon turning down all of Moto's Gingerbread builds until the X1 is running stable on it, I'm pretty sure at this point that the D3 will launch with Froyo if it is launching anytime in July.

So Direct Fill means nothing to you and I, the customer? 14th is the day we'll be able to get them?

I thought Direct Fill meant you could go to a Verizon store or call them and order the phone and it would be shipped straight to your house.

Simply put, it means any source except corporate stores will be able to get them before the 14th. Best Buy also seems to usually adhere to the corporate dates. In this case, the 14th.

Seems silly how they use two dates that hurts corporate stores, but it is what it is.

It saves them money that way. If they sell more online they dont have to pay a rep commission.
