    I just tried as well. The first guy didn't even try he just said it was pre order only online. The second time I got a lady that had never heard of the phone. She found it and told me the price an starte to place the order. She got so far in then the system popped up and told her it wasn't available until the 29th. She had never heard of the phone so she wouldn't know the date unless the system told her. I heard her reading it as it popped up.

    Anybody else speak to a manager? This is complete BS! So jealous! Wonder how Best Buy feels about this.

    so last step is to see if you can activate it. I doubt they have the device blocked since the testers/reviewers had theirs activated. Let us know how it works out.

    Just got off the phone who said that the phone would ship tomorrow — but then she kept running into an error message. Couldn't figure it out and then she read "item not available until the 29th." Rats.

    Nice score on those who got it early! I'm still counting the days...

    Hi all, I just spoke to an online ordering customer service rep (1-800-711-7773) regarding the early shipping of phones, and they informed me that: (1) VZ is no longer taking orders over the phones, (2) phones ordered online won't starting leaving the warehouse until 4/27 for delivery on 4/29 and (3) people who "claim" to be receiving phones and/or shipping confirmation emails already are the result of a an over the phone order "screw up" and phone orders through a third party (hince the no longer accepting of phone orders). Because I was unaware of the free overnight shipping promo code when I ordered, I had two options at check out (free 2nd day or $8.99 overnight). I chose free 2nd day. The rep was nice enough to change my shipping to free overnight with the promo code. At least that's better news. I'm in anticipation like the rest of you (and coming from a three year old razr v3m...lol).

    Exactly. I told them, "Since the phones are already in some of the warehouse and waiting for release, they should just go ahead and rectify the situation and honor all who have pre-ordered regardless of method (over the phone, online or in store), because it isn't fair that some units have, indeed, shipped early." Their reply was, "I understand, but the system has locked down to no releases until 4/29, and no more over the phone orders. Also, be mindful that certain companies, media outlets and technical representative will be sent out preview models that may slightly differ from retail customer units in terms of branding and packaging. Those are marketing units for advertising purposely only." Interesting...

    I couldnt preorder online because we only have business accounts but I was able to just preorder 2 from a friend that works for Verizon. Hopefully those will come in early.

    Sent a email to Verizon asking on my order and telling how some received theirs today and expecting some tomorrow and when I should see my new phone. Doubt anything will change on mine but heck worth a shot after spending all yesterday just trying to pre order the phone lol

    I ordered mine yesterday via phone as well and have yet seen ANY verification that I even ordered a phone. I think you are all just playing mind games with us! All of you are using your geek skills along with Photoshop, Eye Candy, Pinnacle Studio and Sony Vegas Pro to play evil mind games with us....

    BUT DAMN - YOUR GOOD AT IT!!!!

    All joking aside, happy for ya all, wish I was in your boat! I took my Motorola DROID back on Sunday under the Worry-Free-Guarantee so I could place the pre-order on Monday... would have been nice not to have to be DROID-less for a week-in-a-half.

    One of you needs to start a new "I Received my DROID Incredible today" thread for easier communication and Q&A sessions.

    Again, enjoy your new toys!!!

    I was a BIG participator and contributor in the WM forums... and while new to the Android side of things and I may look like fresh meat, don't let that fool ya!!! I look forward to meeting all of you in this new forum and hope we can all learn and grow together with this INCREDIBLE experience!!! (sorry, couldn't resist)
