    Sweet, I love my local FedEx place! Mine was shipped yesterday with 2-day shipping, scheduled to arrive tomorrow. But I noticed that it's at my local facility as of 7:43 this morning.

    I called and asked if I could just come get it. He said it's ALREADY on the truck!! He said the driver may or may not actually attempt to deliver today, as it's not due until tomorrow. Apparently they sort everything onto the trucks as soon as it comes in, they like to "keep ahead of the shipments" :)

    BUT.... he told me to leave a note on the door just in case he does try to deliver and if he doesn't I can pick it up tonight after 6PM.

    YAY!! I'm so excited!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

    First time posting, but also guilty of lurking from day 1 of ordering.

    ordered: 6/23
    Est. shipping 7/21

    ordered with a business account with over 200 active Blackberrys.

    I am getting excited. Did the whole appbrain/accessories thing. Just now waiting for my Incredible.

    We have such a good account with Verizon and they have always been nice with everything since my company has so many Blackberrys and BES plans with them.

    I am planning on switching some users to Android OS. Going to order 10 more phones after I test some software with my Incredible.

    I have tried everything to get them to ship it out faster. Although they have been very helpful, it was out of their control.

    I noticed too that they have been shipping faster and the website changed to 8/2 shipping. I am getting really excited that I couldn't help not posting :( ....


    Are they really catching up? Looks like they may ship out 6/23s by Friday....

    I just wanted to add... I am not going to try the "leave a note" route myself, but Fed Ex did confirm that you can do that with indirect delivery.

    The phones are being shipped to my fiance's house and there are several teens in neighboring houses that... well... leave a little to be desired if you know what I mean. So I don't want the package just sitting there. Hopefully his roommate will answer and sign for it, otherwise I'll get them this evening.

    As excited as I am, I would rather wait a few extra hours than risk them getting stolen from the doorstep and have to wait another month.

    I got lucky when I ordered mine.

    ordered online: 5/4
    estimated ship date: 5/18
    delivered: 5/5 :eek:

    It's far and away the best phone I've ever owned. If you're still waiting - stay strong, it's worth it.

    Phenomenal device. Had mine for a little over two weeks now after waiting about 30 days to get it. Completely and totally worth it.

    Thought I'd come out from lurking and post and give hope to the 6.19ers
    6/18 order instore, original quote was shipping July 18th, then couple weeks later went in and they said at least the 20th, dad went in to check something on his account and checked for my phone, tracking number no later than the 15th.
    Woke up this morning and got the *611 pending activation notice, called verizon, got tracking number, was told it was already shipped yesterday and was going to be here today before 3pm. too bad ill be at work until 8.

    But for those expecting delivery, you dont need to be home. With Fedex indirect signature required, you can leave a note, dated with your name, tracking number and a signature and that is acceptable for the deliveryman to drop it off. I called FedEx to make sure, and the CSR said it was kosher.

    UUUGGHHHH! I can't hardly wait anymore!!! I wish I had pulled the trigger sooner on ordering but didn't order until 7/2. I'm so stoked about getting this phone (coming from a BB Curve) and I know you have all been here! I can't remember feeling like a kid at
    Christmas like this since being a kid (and that's been a loooong time ago)! Oh well, just gotta keep waiting and being envious of all you guys (and gals) getting your DInc's. Congrats to all having received them so far!

    Ordered: 7/2
    Estimated Ship Date: 7/28 :(

    Welcome!

    We've all been there....it's a helluva wait, but I keep hearing it's totally worth it...mine should ship this week, if all goes according to the schedule everyone else seems to be on.

    I had some money issues and couldn't order until mid-late June, so I know how it feels to wish you had pulled the trigger earlier...it'll all be worth it in the end when we're sitting in the Lounge talking about how crazy it was that we waited this long (and with this much anticipation) for anything...:)

    What are the odds that our orders come in significantly ealier after the Droid X hits stores tomorrow? I figure lots of people will switch to that brick and will lower the demand on this phone in the short term.

    Meaning I could get bumped up.

    btw, how do you find the location code? I have my 5 digit order number

    I bought mine on 7/12. Will be shipped on 8/9...Freaking long wait, especially for my first smart phone! But on Verizon.com, the shipping date drop to 8/2, does that mean I'll get mine earlier?

    Thanks for the welcome SS! My delay wasn't so much $ issues as it was dragging my feet! I've known since around the release date that I wanted this phone. Much of the delay was in upgrading my daughter's phone due to maturity and irresponsibility...teenagers! Anyway, I caved and while I was ordering hers I ordered mine. Oh, BTW, no smart phone for her, just a regular feature phone with many blocks!

    9 - 2 = 7. Yup, you'll get it 7 days earlier.

    GOOOOOOOODMORNING EVERYONE and what a great morning it is! Just checked the Fed Ex website and my phone is on the truck and on its way over to my office. And to all those still waiting, hang in there your time will also come. My suggestion is try to stay busy with other things because it has been the longest month of my life lol.

    Oh snap, I'm a 6/21 too... I've been trying not to get too worked up about getting it this week, even though that's what my guy at the local store said it was scheduled for. Looks like it could happen!

    Hey! I commute to BR for work every day. Been through Gonzales a few times.
    I was doing fine until I heard the 611 message and now I'm going crazy with anticipation. Haven't seen any actual shipping info yet and don't really want to deal with customer service...so I'm waiting.
    Hope it's all you expected and more!

    6/15 orders were happening this weekend. Now today we see a 6/21. Hoping for sure my 6/26 in store will ship within 7 days.

    Edit: I'm thinking about going through this thread and trying to determine how many order days are shipping per each day. My rough guestimate is 1.4 order days per week day.

    I know I still have at LEAST ten days left to wait, but I've still called CS twice this morning -- just to hear the initial automated lady to see if she says anything about pending activation. I need to find a hobby in the meantime. :eek::eek:
