    Ugh...after a day of looking at my co-workers DX I think I'm going to cancel my recently places DINC order and get the DX. I live in Charlotte, NC. What are the chances they have any in stock? I am going out of town tomorrow morning for a few days and wanna get the phone now!!!

    I bought mine in Charlotte today. I was the 2nd person in the store at 6:30 AM (had an apt.). But, the one at Concord Mills had told me yesterday that if/when they ran out that their warehouse had plenty and they could overnight me one. You may not get it when you walk in the store, but I don't think you would have to wait long.

    Most of the early people got one.

    I waited until about 11am, and got the very last one in my town. We are sold out now, lol.

    They may get more tomorrow.

    The small authorized dealer near me only got two or three today but the kid there told me they've got more coming tomorrow. So hopefully that's the case for most stores

    You folks did not expect the first shipment to cover all demand? The last thing Moto wants is supply excess on a launch. They have to keep the buzz going ;)

    Most VZW stores will see X shipments on their Friday delivery (tomorrow). VZW already said there will be plenty. I doubt they would stick their necks out after the Inc disaster of constrained supply due to no displays.

    After they told me that I went to the store in the University area and lucky for me they had 1 appointment left, for 6:30 AM today, and I took it. Walked out with my X around 7:00 with a big smile on my face!

    My store was already sold out when I got there this morning at 9. I'm got it overnighted to me though.

    Too bad I have to work from 9-6 tomorrow. No Droid X for me until supper time :(

    I literally got the last one at my store and they're sold out. They said it's 1-2 days for them to order it so just go in there and get it....you should have in 1-2 days.

    It's defintely gonna be a while to get used to it coming from an iphone 2g

    I didn't make it in to my Verizon store until about 9:30am - no line, just a queue of 3-4 customers on the managers list he was making at the door.

    Pretty much everybody was buying a DX.

    It took me almost 2 hours to get out of the store due to the activation issue (which didn't appear to affect everybody - some people who started their purchase long after me were in-and-out in 20 minutes???)

    I can't believe the popularity of this phone with the lack of advertising I have seen, especially compared to the original droid.

    I talked with some guys from the local store (I used to work there and am friends with everyone still) and they sold out in 30 minutes. They said they got way more accessories than phones.

    If they dont have any in stock they can overnight one to you and you will have it tomorrow. Thats what they did for the people who came after they sold out of the X
