    With the crisis going on in japan, parts may become scarce and there may be a long shortage on ThunderBolts.............

    VZW stores in Frisco, Plano, Dallas all sold out of TB. I lucked out though, just got back from a store with an HTC rep there. He had 5 extra ones to pass out to stores as extra demo units. He gave one to the VZW store I was at and they sold me that one.

    Man I am originally from Dallas but currently in LA, and most of the storea in West LA are sold out. I think some stores in Compton may have some but it's a safety risk going there.....................

    I see they're still showing available on VZW's site. If you want one and haven't gotten it, I'd go ahead and order now.

    They have some in Mtn View, CA (near Stanford) at BB. VWZ was sold out, but they are expecting a drop shipment this afternoon. I think a lot of people wanted the 1 year $319 or the $599 no contract from VWZ. The 2 year is still $249 at both places.

    Im debating buying it online myself, but since Amazon has it for a hell of a lot cheaper, Im debating buying it there. My only issue is do I want to spend 60 bucks more and know Ill have it in 2/3 days from Verizon or do I want to wait their "8 to 9 day" shipping time and hope they have some since theyre currently back ordered. Blech. I want my Bolt. lol.

    Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua and Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem. Both corporate stores. Give in to temptation! I'm headed to Salem right now.

    You can probably get it now. If you're within 6(?) months of contract end, they will usually let you move up your date. Since you're only a week out, I would be surprised if they didn't let you do it today.

    The Verizon store that I went to in San Diego yesterday had a few left. The salesperson told me that they has sold 50+ devices at that store since launch

    Think they'd bump mine, and the other people on my family plan? We're eligible to upgrade on April 4, though our contract doesn't actually end until August. If they do bump back our date for eligibility, would that carry over to other stores (I'd prefer to order on Amazon, even if I have to wait longer because of their "back order"), or would I then have to upgrade at a Verizon store, itself?

    My VZW store in OKC was sold out. They sold their first 20 Thurs, got 20 more in and sold those.

    I ordered mine in store today and should have it shipped to me on Wed.

    **Not a regular poster here but want to say a big THANKS to all the regulars. I learn so much from lurking in on all of you.

    When I bought mine on Saturday I was told "we have some, but don't know our exact inventory" As I stood there for an hour waiting through the huge sales list I was getting nervous, lol. I eventually bought mine, but saw 5 sold ahead of me and 2 while I was activating. Went back 30 minutes later to return the crappy screen protectors I bought and there were 3 more walking out and one being rung up (with a ZOOM) that was a happy man for sure.

    I bought two at Best Buy on Saturday and they matched the $179 price from Amazon.
