    There's no advantage to preordering from bestbuy instead of Verizon online

    Unless you can return Verizon online orders to stores (if you have problems), that is one advantage (about it, though).

    I could go and pick it up in-store on release day on my own convenience without having to worry about being there whenever the delivery driver decides to show up so I can sign for the phone. I'd say that's an advantage.

    One advantage to Best Buy is the $100 Instant Rebate instead of Mail-In Rebate

    If you order from Verizon online they do the $100 off instant, too.

    I would definitely check with your Best Buy store for what there expected inventory should be. I don't foresee a huge rush, but your deposit guarantees a spot in line, not necessarily that you'll walk out with one if say you're number 11 in line and they only get 10.

    No you dont get it off instantly. You have to pay 299.99 then you have to send in the mail in rebate then you will get a 100 debit card in the mail.

    I just pre-order the Droid Incredible today at 11 in the morning once the store open Ill tell you this my best buy didnt even have the pre order form for the product. But You have to put 50 bucks down on the phone. What was nice about the location I went to they gave me a gift card with pre-load 50 dollars on there. So if i choose not to get the phone i was able to use it towards something else. Since the 50 bucks is non-refundable so that was a perk.

    No, the mail in rebates are only for the actual stores. The rebates are instant if you go through the website.

    Yeah, that doesn't really specify. Never thought you were being dishonest or anything. ;)

    I just preorder the phone @ bestbuy, and according to the rep. she said the phone will arrive on the 23rd, she also inform me that I can come get it on the 23rd, so they will have it almost one week before official release day. Let's just hope this is true.

    Nah I was just showing u how it was worded and I read it cause it doesn't even mention pre-order at the version store just says Pre-order Online. But reguardless I hope its a great phone and anyone getting one has a flawless process of picking it up to getting it home and have some fun with it. I just hope its everything the specs make it seem. So Congrats to any one getting one and I personally looking foward for the 29th.

    Best Buy doesn't have Verizon NE2 discount. This is a major point for me. Also, add $100 instant rebate online.

    To pay only $99.99 plus tax for this phone for me is the best deal anyone can offer. ($299.99 - $100.00 instant rebate online - $100.00 New Every 2 year discount).

    I pre-ordered it also and was told the 29th. She said they may get it the 28th, but I couldn't get it til the 29th.

    VGPOP - You sure about that $99? I would think it would be $199 with a NE2. If I am wrong, I screwed myself out of $100 today by going to BB and not waiting til tomorrow to do it online.

    Well since I don't have a Verizon account basically NE2 dosent apply to me. I have T-mobile and At&t accounts. So take i dont mind paying $199 for the phone. But that must be nice to pay 99 buck for it.

    this is what i am hoping also. Whats to lose really. All you get is a spot and gift card so if it comes early= win, if not and decide other route gift card used on case and shield for the phone =win :D

    I only see advantages for me in pre-order it at best buy. I don't have to wait for the debit card to be mailed to me and I was given a $50 gift for my birthday a few years ago that I still haven't used.

    One question though, will best buy have the accessories that Verizon stores will have? I want to protect my phone right away with a case and a screen protector.

    I talked to a BB Mobile consultant and he said they should have "accessories that nowhere else has" on launch day. I personally think they will just have regular old accessories (case, screen protector etc.) but it will be nice to get that while I'm picking mine up! So yes, they will have them :)

    Verizon offers the "mail in rebate" instantly online. You don't need to pay anything up front.

    That's $100.00 deducted from the price (at 2-year contract).

    $299.99 <- Price with 2-year contract
    - $100.00 instant rebate
    - $100.00 New Every 2 year Discount
    ---------------------
    $99.99 + tax.
