    and I am number THREE on the pre order list! TWO UNITS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    How could Verizon allot that small of units of their new FLAGSHIP phone?

    Steinbrenner dies and now this??

    what an awful day....

    I'm hoping they get some more in launch day, that is what happened with the EVOs. But, let's hope.

    Either you live in BFE or Best Buy is lying.

    Worse. I am number ONE on the pre-order list at the BestBuy nearest me (Tulsa Midtown OK Store #762), but they told me this morning that they aren't sure that they'll have ANY on launch day. Actually, what they told me first was "the launch day is being moved." When I said flatly that was b.s. they backpedaled and said, "that's what we were told to tell anyone who calls or asks, but *if* we get one, you'll get it."

    BigFlippinWhoopee. What's the point of having a pre-order system if you can't fulfill the pre-orders? It only makes you look bad.

    I decided last year I wanted to replace my Blackberry Bold, but I decided to wait until was out of contract in February, rather than pay AT&T an early termination fee. Then in Feb. I decided to wait for the iPhone 4 to launch this summer. Then in June I ordered an iPh4 -- and got it on launch day -- but sent it back, because by then I'd read about the Droid X. So I decided to wait three more weeks and get a DX. Well, if my new smartphone doesn't show up on Thursday and bake bread and slice it, I'm going POSTAL on somebody. The dorks in blue polos better wear kevlar on Thursday if they can't fulfill the order they made.

    Only some of the NYY fans will grieve him and none of the rest of the world.

    Well ... I have to give him respect ... I'm from Queens, Milky Way, Local Group. . .

    so respect given to the Boss. . .

    now back to my droid. . . how did I know best buy would pull off something like this. . . I knew "can't guarantee you a phone on release" sounded like "won't receive phones on release" . . . guess I need to make the call to my store. Here goes nothing!

    and any Steinbrenner HATERS out there can just shut it, he has done so much for the sports industry and given so much money back into baseball. The revenue sharing gives small market teams enough money to spend more, but what do they do? put it in their pockets...Steinbrenner puts it back into his team...

    Reminds me of when the Storm 1 launched. I can't tell you how many "Preorders" were turned away.

    I, for one, am taking this with a grain of salt until I see similar reports from numerous other BB locations. Someone estimated that there are more than 1100 Best Buy locations. 1 out of 1100 doesn't exactly create a precedent. :rolleyes:

    BWAHAHAHA!

    I am out in Goodyear, and this store is only getting a few as well, but my local corporate VZW store is getting 100 by LaunchDay. But since I am on a business account, I have to wait an extra day to get mine, plus it is free so one day isn't a big deal to me.

    Um, as sad as it may be....this is not a sport forum. The thread is about something entirely different. You can always create your own thread on the subject in the correct venue. But I am participating in these forums to be informed on the subjects here.

    It may be possible that they will be getting more today, tomorrow and on launch day. I sure hope that they do.
