    It might not be the most pleasant experience, but I live in Middle Tennessee and every Walmart I go into has atleast one DX.

    Look on craigslist. No one had one in stock when I was looking for one. Then I found this authorized independent seller on craigslist who had one. You know, those little verizon shops you see around. He gets a couple a week and posts on craigslist when he gets them in. The only problem with these authorized reseller is that there is an additional contract that says I can not give up my data plan before 90 days or I get charged.

    ??? You can't give up your data plan ever with Verizon if you have a smart phone. If you were planning on dropping the $29.99 data plan, you are out of luck.

    I think I wasn't clear. If you go directly to Verizon you can sell your droid x and go back to a basic plan with a basic phone (that you already had). Im saying you can't do that through an authorized reseller. They have a seperate contrat that says you need to keep the data plan for a certain time. See what im saying?

    You can't sell your phone back to Verizon!!?? You can return it for a refund during ur thirty day wfg. Should be the same for agents as well.

    1. Go to Verizon store
    2. Order phone
    3. Wait for it to ship
    4. *GLEE!*

    That's what a lot of us had to do, it won't kill you. Or just keep waiting until you can take it home from the store, although you'll probably get it faster if you order and wait.

    I got mine by going on a waiting list at Best Buy Mobile. Had it 6 days later. Either way you'll have to wait it seems. It's well worth the wait though. Just be patient.......Good things come to those who wait, right?
    I wasn't one to go through BB Mobile BTW, but they took the time to actually sit down with me and explain the OS and what things I can all do (I'm a new android owner). I've never had a Verizon CSA do this for me in person. The one time they did fo when I got my Crapberry Strom, they rushed me through it due to other customers being in the store........Another reason I liked Best Buy Mobile, is I switched to their insurance. Basically if I take a hammer to my phone, they'll replace it for free, either with a DX or whatever new cool phone may be out there that is the same retail price

    Good Luck, You'll love it when you DO get it

    I picked up my Droid X in Walmart as well -- just stop in and see if they have any behind the counter.

    Paid $530 outright and was in and out in 15 minutes.

    That's what I did on release day. I actually grapped the last 1 of the two they got!

    IIRC it's only $199 out of pocket on a 2 year plan, no rebate.

    I have no idea if they do a 1 year deal.
