    If you are anything like me, this place will be your hobby for now!

    Plus you can head over to AppBrain and start saving the app's you want. Then go accessory shopping online and get your spare batteries, cases, cables, car mounts, etc. Whatever you want. That way you'll be all set when the phone actually arrives.

    ::laugh:: I kinda figured...I was just explaining that my "dragging my feet" was money-related.

    You are wise, in regards to your daughter and her phone setup.

    Yeah...I have been researching like a junkie after accidentally stumbling upon this phone when it first leaked. I know how ya feel.

    Although, if all these early shipments are any indication, my journey will be over before you know it...which bodes well for yours, too. :)

    I have a case here staring me in the face. It's cute, but it looks a little......empty. I hadn't thought about pre-saving apps. Thanks! It sure beats watching the reruns of the YouTube videos!

    Oh my gosh! I'm so excited to see some 6/21ers getting their phones!

    nothing on my email yet and nothing on *611. I ordered online so I can't figure out how to do the location/order code thing on fedex. I don't have any of those numbers.

    MINE IS COMING!!!!!!!! called CS directly and my phone has shipped and I have my tracking number

    Order: 6/21
    shipped: 6/14
    est deliver: 6/15 before 3pm coming from PA to MA

    YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY

    (oh and the reference number on fed ex matches nothing on my original online order receipt. Half of it matches a number that CS had listed as an 'order number' which I'd never have known if I hadn't contacted CS earlier in the month. But nowhere do I have the location number half of it. So I would say that for online ordering you're not going to be able to use the fedex trick)

    Getting my phone TONIGHT!! I can pick up up anytime after 6PM. Yeee Hooo!! :D Sadly my spare battery charger hasn't arrived yet so I wasn't able to precharge like I wanted. So now I have to wait another 8 hours to play with it :(

    Also just found out that HTCPedia charged me twice for my TV Cable. But the guy was very apologetic when I called and refunded it while on the phone, thats okay.

    I know ..lol. My biggest issue is that I'm going to be out all day tomorrow so i won't be able to obsess too much. I can only hope that my teenager 1) will answer the door and 2) sign for the package. I will kill her KILL HER if she doesn't.

    Hahaha! If you trust your neighbors and don't think it would get stolen, you could always just leave a note on the door for the FedEx guy to leave it.

    If my driver attempts to deliver today I hope that my fiance's roommate will answer the door. But he sucks at answering the door. He tends to ignore anything that isn't happening in his own little world :) But even if he doesn't, I can go get it tonight. So I am not too worried.

    Just called to check on the status of my order that I placed on July 1. They originally said my ship date was July 29, but when I called, she said it looks like it will be shipped this Friday! Not going to get my hopes up quite yet, but maybe things really are catching up!!

    I got spooked after seeing this thread. I never received an email confirmation after I ordered online. I called VZW CS and they did receive the order.

    Well I do have an idea.... ;)

    I already ordered two 1500 batteries and those are the only ones I really plan to use. Sooooo, I am thinking I will just charge the stock battery until the lights green (I hear it's about 2 hours?) and then start playing!

    If it messes up the battery, who cares?!?! I won't be touching it after tonight. If I had my spare charger already I probably wouldn't even have taken the stock battery out of the box.

    I gotz zee planz! :D

    Same thing happened to me...online order on June 21st, est. ship July 20th, no confirmation of any kind. I sent VZW an email, and they confirmed that everything went through. Weird...but it's true. When you see everyone else talking about confirmations, and order numbers, you panic a bit.

    Welcome! :)

    Just a quick update. Phone received yesterday and charged for 8 hours(torture). I was a little frustrated last night, but it's only because this phone is smarter than I am. It is so awesome guys, the wait is worth it. I still have days of playing with it before I can learn all its capabilities.

    I just saw you're in Northern VA. We're in the same neck of the woods.
