    heres the link . So my question is, if this is true that the INC comes out at BB on teh 29th, does that mean it wont come out earlier at vzn stores?

    another link
    The Ad says REALLY soon. to me 29th isn't really soon. But what ever. At least we have a release date.

    Look again. It says the devour launch date was the 25th of February when it came out about a month later.

    I see "4/25 buyers guide". What's that mean?

    You should be able to buy without a contract if you wanna fork over the prob 500+ dollars for it. the devour did come out the 25th at best buy it came out later at verizon store

    Actually, the devour did launch in Feb at BB. It was out there a month before you could buy it through Verizon.

    There's no way it did.

    1. It wouldn't make sense to give it to best buy a month before themselves, especially when they make more (or I should say lose less) at their own stores.

    2. If it was, why did they bother to announce it the day before their release at ctia when it had been out at bb and isn't really new.

    3. I doubt the best buy site would still say new over it.

    If that's true then we might as well stop guessing on when the incredible is coming because verizon makes 0 sense with phone releases...

    ^ I agree. I also want to know how often it has happened.

    I'd rather not buy it from best buy in case I have issues with it, geek squad not only flat out lies to customers, they bend rules like crazy. Took me 7 months to replace a laptop under 3 year accidental with a fried mobo (the first MONTH they kept saying it was software and not covered - it didn't even get to post damn it) and they said they get "4 tries" to fix it but they kept saying tries "did not count" because they misdiagnosed the problem. This was backed up by calls to corporate so it wasn't just my best buy. From what I hear, they do that for any of the more expensive computers (mine was a Gateway FX), which are the only computers worth spending $300 on a warranty for in the first place.

    Btw- I didn't read through everyone's posts because I'm short on time, but I will say this about the Cosmos being on there for 04/25..

    You cannot buy the Cosmos from Best Buy right now.

    With the devour you could buy it with a 2 year contract at a discount. Not sure how they will do the Incredible.

    Depends. May launch the same day at both Verizon and BB. In the main incredible thread Dingleberry (forgot the 3rd name) post pics of BB's inventory said that the in stock date was the 25th. When the Blackberry Storm 2 launched (oct 29th 2009) the BB inventory screen also said in stock on October 25th even though it came out 4 days later. In both cases the in stock dates were Sundays when BB resets its specials.

    I think you should do more research. BB only covers warranty up to a month after purchase. After that, Verizon has to honor the warranty and you can take it to verizon. The reason alot of people buy at BB is that they usually get a cheaper price on the phone
