    My local Premium Retailer is only selling the Droid X to people opening new accounts...my 15 years and $250/month account doesn't count for much here...hope its not the same for you...

    if its not a corporate store, he makes no money off the phone itself he makes money off of opening contracts that is why he doesnt wanna sell it to you

    yea. i hear the premium retailers get around $350 for each contract they get signed. So... really no point of them selling you a phone for like 20-50$ profit. Good thing i got a couple corporates around me

    Well, he used to see me in his store at least twice a month for accessories (to make him money), now won't see me at all...these little stores throw a fit when you don't buy local (small town) and then they screw the locals. Online order is just a click away...

    You should tell them that and remind them that they can always re-order another X but they can't reorder regular reliable customers.

    here, here. They open your phone box in the store. When it's delivered to me, no one puts their grubby hands on it! ;)

    that's just another positive I haven't thought of... Thanks :)

    by them not being willing to sell to me in store tomorrow, I have been playing on the web site a lot. I didnt know you could by all the accessories and gadgets online and get free next day shipping. I would rather wait in home one extra day and not have to deal with the cluster F my local store always is. I can't imagine how badly unorganized it will be down there in the morning.
