Earlier today I stopped in at hh gregg (I am a Cable Company sales rep who deals with the store) and chatted up the guy at the VZW counter. I gave him my info to call me when the X came in. Well, at about 5pm, he called and said they were now taking $50 deposits to guarantee an X on Thursday. I just got back and I am getting the first one on Thursday! FYI for any X hunters out there. This might be a viable option since their VZW kiosks are fairly new and they may not have the amount of traffic as other places.
