    Just got rid of my Droid 1 in anticipation for the DX (mostly because my wife wouldn't let me have it until it was sold). I'm just worried that I may not get it this month. I ordered it on the 3rd, and it said will be delivered by 8/19. I have't gotten my e-mail from Verizon saying it shipped or when I could expect it. But I looked online today and they changed it to the 23rd. Anyone think I'll get it soon? I just want the greatness that is the DX in my hands. Longest 2 weeks of my life :/.

    i ordered mine sunday from the store and also havent gotten any e-mails yet. on sunday it said they were being shipped on the 18th on verizons website so hopefully i dont have to wait longer than that. the weird thing though is that the rep told me they were coming in really fast now and when i was leaving he said see you in a week (im going back to get accessories).

    I ordered mine online, I think I should have went into the store. I just really want the phone. I'm back using my old Eris in it's place until it comes in. I hate this phone, not a bad phone, but not what I'm used to. Even rooted the Eris doesn't do the job.

    I know exactly how you feel. I haven't even ordered mine yet. I can't do so until the 11th, and who knows what shipping date Verizon will be estimating by then. I'm extremely worried that I won't even have it until the end of August or beginning of September. I really don't want to have to wait that long.

    I'm dyin' ovah here. :'(

    I watched the I*hone 4 vs DX and the Evo Vs DX videos. I don't really agree with both of the videos but everyone is entitled to their opinion :D. Overall though he did a pretty good job. But I've been glued to youtube about the DX lol.

    Froyo is pretty sweet, I had it on my rooted D1. Hopefully the update hits before the D2 comes out. Probably won't but we can dream right?

    That date keeps jumpin like every other day to, I looked on Sunday and it said the 18th, than when I went to order it it had jumped to the 19th. Now its up to the 23rd. Who knows where it will be at on the 11th.

    I don't know about private stores but the few coporate stores I went to all said that they cannot ship the phone to the store and that phones ordered for stock are filled after drop shipped customer orders. I am not saying that this true since Verizon has some of the dumbest people on earth employed but its what I was told. So if you guys ordered the phone for in store pick-up you may want to double check. All that aside I placed my order around 6:30am on 8/1 and with a "ship by date" of 8/18...as of right now it has not been shipped.

    Also to the guy that has an upgrade date of the 11th....I understand that you can get your NE2 discount at anytime in the 20th month so you may want to call CS or stop in a store and ask.

    I ordered mine on the 3rd as well as one for my wife and have yet to receive any such email or anything. I have read that some people haven't even received as much as an email and were told it was going to be a couple weeks and then all of a sudden the phone just shows up a couple days or so later on their door step... I hate the wait as well but I have a feeling it is going to be well worth it!!!!

    Hopefully we will get them in a few days but that is wishfull thinking, lol...:D

    Let me know if yours shows up, that would be amazing! I'm having mine shipped to my work so I can play with it the minute it shows up. I live in an apartment complex where no one will be here to sign (since I don't have any clue when it's going to show up) and I don't want someone to rip it off. I know I know, paranoia but who can blame me?

    I don't blame you one bit. I am having 2 of them shipped and they are coming straight to my work as well. Just hope I am not busy the day they show up cause needless to say, not much work will be getting done that day, lol.... Or for the next few days for that matter, lol:p

    i'm not understanding why they keep moving back the 'ship to' date on the website. orders are still shipping way earlier than expected.
    i've been reading a lot about when people ordered and when they actually got the phone - trying to be prepared for when i can order it next week - and the majority of people are getting their phone within 6-7 days of ordering. and the day they receive it is generally a couple days before it was actually suppose to ship.

    I bought my phone from the store on Sunday and still haven't got any e-mail. The guy at the store said I'd have it in a week but I'm not so sure he knows what he's talking about. Does anyone know if you order one from the store and phones were being planned on going there (for their next shipment or whatever) if they just send yours out at the same time? Wondering if the store will end up getting them in stock after I already bought one and I'll still be sitting here waiting for a phone to come in the mail.

    My order was placed on the phone on Aug. 2nd, to replace my Eris that is Ph_cked up. The Guy that day said it will ship overnight shipping on Friday. Well I called yesterday another guy told me it will ship today...well today I don't get any notification, so I called back and they told me it would ship by Aug. the 19th. This sucks... these CSR people need to get it straight.

    I want patience and I want it right NOW! I'm waiting until 8/21 and my NE2. Rep says I can get it for $99 then. ---if there are any available.

    Fingers, toes, arms, legs, eyes--crossed, hoping.

    My what discount? If you're talking about the discount on a phone when upgrading, I don't think that I have one. The only thing I got when getting my LG Ally was the discount due to the 2-year contract. I don't think I'm eligible right now. We just got myself a new phone when we signed a new contract because we figured, "why not." My dad, however, did get an upgrade discount on his phone. He's already sent in the rebate as far as I know. I still have my UPC code, thankfully. :)

    LOL I think I know exactly which commercial that's from.

    The wait is so unbearable, just knowing that you paid for something. It's officially yours, and you can't have it right away. I called Verizon today and they were absolutely no help. She said that it would ship by the 19th, but couldn't give me more of an approximate date. Even though I gotta say I appreciate that more than her telling me next week, and it not showing up.
