    Here's an odd one tonight...I saw mid-week a local BestBuy store with a whole rack full of V's out on display. Was in a second store yesterday and saw the rack card, but no phones. Tonight I notice the phone isn't available in stores, period, per the BB Web site, but can only be ordered online. Weird, indeed.

    Best Buy is now offering a bundle deal for the V with a car charger, screen protector and $25 airtime card for $167.97.

    I should add that although BB is not listing the V for sale in stores, local stores may in fact have inventory if you call and give them the SKU of 1879739. If so, they may honor the bundle price as well, but you'll have to ask, and I'd have a copy of the BB Web page with me. The SKU for the bundle is 9999149900050002.

    I got mine from RadioShack online, used a $10 off coupon and got it shipped for free with sales tax included for $148.

    TRUE! I work at one in NYC and we have had it for some time even though the website said we did not have them. I even got mine 5 days before it was for sale online. :D

    Yep was researching BB two weeks ago, local stores said they would not carry it but then it showed up online. Originally when it first showed up online it said IN STORE ONLY. They had it all screwed up but they probably don't want it to compete with the intercept that they do sell in store. Bought mine at RS delivered to my house free at 139 plus tax. Found an online coupon for 10 bucks.

    Why would you want a protector that "enhances grip".

    I have one, yes it increases grip, and it's a problem, your finger doesn't slide smooth.
    It's a good protector (self healing), but not for a touch screen.

    Thanks. I was able to find the bundle Sunday. The DC store had 3 phones. I couldn't find one at all in the MD stores. It took me 1 hour to change from Verizon to VM and save money.
