I want to get my droid already, but i'm still in a contract with AT&T unfortunately until July 11th, which is killing me. Anyway, I was wondering if buying the phone online would be a feasible option. How does the billing work if I have not received my phone yet? I plan on joining my cousin to make a family plan. He got his droid a couple of days ago and is currently on an individual plan. If I order online, when does billing start? Will I need to have the account owner's info if I try? Is there tax if I buy online (i'm located in California)? If not, it gives me more of an incentive to buy online. I can probably try to get one when a local best buy restocks, but when my cousin bought his, it was 40$ tax.
