Her response was " The release has been delayed, it is no longer being released on the 8th." I asked her if she knew what date and she said she hasnt been told yet." With that being said I did not mention the 8th SHE did. Lets all hope for the 9th..
Hello! That story is slightly worrying, but nothing we haven't gotten used too....

EPIC FAIL!!
Actually, I disagree for these reasons:

1) We all now KNOW that the date is confirmed.
2) He got us more infos. Bravo, bro.
3) He did check and we're all the wiser for it.

Everyone is happy, now, right? Let me see you all smile!!!! <----muuuuuch better!!!!

There seems to be a little confusion about the exact date. Is it the 8th or the 9th? Cincy's rep said the 8th, but is that a hush-hush early deal?

What I mean is, when should I be going to stalk my local corporate store?

"Authorized retailers" have to display something saying that in the front window. Corporate stores are usually large and have "Verizon" displayed very prominently.

Most of the time they receive shortly after. Sometimes they'll have it on launch day. I don't understand the how's or why's though.

Me thinks all of the above

Probably with the state Attorney General office, but doubt they'll do much. I presume it'll have to be pursued by the Fed Gov't to get anything done (antitrust violations.)

Seriously I don't know why he doesn't have new contract . The offense as a whole is pissing me off . You'd think the rest of the team would step up when Cutler and Forte went down and they did the opposite. The Oline was awful the last two weeks, DROPS ( Mike Williams at the Goal Line come one) Marion Barber with the stupid illegal formation on a open TD.
You've got a back up QB with no experience and the team plays like that. Good news is if they finish 2-2 they'll probably still get in the playoffs but it won't matter if Cutler doesn't come back .

The only part of the team stepping up is the Defense they've played lights out the last two weeks (even if it was against the Chiefs and Raiders )

There will be tiny words under the verizon logo that say authorized reseller (or something similar) for the non corporate stores.

I've also recently learned that if they have a tech department then it's a corporate store. (that's what the sales guys at the one in Butler said anyway)

If it doesn't launch by 12/12, I will attempt to make a phone shaped cake... or maybe a phone-looking cookie, and I will eat it. I can keep that promise!

I believe if you are an admin you can do whatever you want with the account as well as her. She shouldn't need to be with you.

put in your zip code for the one closest to you. They only list the corporate stores, at least here in Pcola. There are a bunch of authorized retailers but only 4 stores listed and there corporate. I'm finding there is a big difference. especially in price

I was under the impression that the ones that first show up when you do a store locator search were corporate. When you select "All Stores", retailers also appear. Then again, there's BJs kiosks listed under the main returns, but then AGAIN, I don't see any Costco. So maybe BJs kiosks are considered corporate?

I just overflowed the stack, didn't I?

I was planning on hitting up the Paramus store on Rt 17 on my way to work. I guess that's probably crazy to your point. I bought my OG Droid at GS Plaza at 4pm on launch day but I don't think I can wait til after work this go around :-).

That store in Paramus is crazy too. I remember from when I lived in the area. That was 10 years ago too. Im sure it a real nut house now.

Just stepping in during a free period in school. I think you'll have more luck with these stores if you physically go there and ask for info... just saying.

So I see the Droid 4 could come before the GNex? What the hell Verizon >_>

Is it possible I could check my local store today and walk out with a phone or do you think they haven't received anything yet? It would be pretty badass :O

Just talked to the BJ's store that is most convenient for me.....they have a demo unit, but no stock yet and no release date. I, unfortunately live 2 hours from the store (heading in town Friday night) so I can't go see the demo. Anyone in Richmond, Va want to head over to BJs????? But it does seem like the is the first time I have heard of a store with a DEMO!!!!!

I'm sorry, but until Verizon says so themselves, I don't consider anything confirmed. This date can slip at any time if Verizon feels like being jerks.

Ok guys, I was starting to get really skeptical. I called 2 of the stores nearest me and even told them I knew some stores had them in stock and was releasing Friday and they wouldn't crack. They said they knew nothing.

Called the 3rd store which is probably 20 miles further away but not far from where I work and the woman on the phone confirmed they do have them in the store right now but could not sell till Friday. I asked her specifically if they had them in the store and she said yes without hesitation and said that they could sell them on Friday and no sooner. Even asked if I could convince her to sell one early, she said no. All in good fun of course. So I asked her if I could put my name down to reserve 2 and what time they would open on Friday. She put me on hold to check with the manager.

Here's the bad news guys. Take it like everything else stated here, with a grain of salt, but she came back and said that the manager said he just got notified they could not sell on Friday and does not know when they can sell. He said there's still a chance, but they wouldn't know till Thursday. She said they have had a couple of launch dates already for the device but they were all pulled last minute.

Like I said, take it with a grain of salt. I'm going to call the last store in the area now.

Agreed. I saw this morning that the thread title changed to confirmed, I was hoping they finally sent out a press release.

That's two posts now of Verizon employees saying the launch has been delayed last minute, again.

i have no reason to doubt him after everything he's helped me out with in the past in regards to phone launches. i guess i'll know at 11AM on Thursday!
So are some people getting their hands on this a day early? I ve pretty much been told Friday by my store, so what's up with the whole Thursday thing?
