    Forget pre-ordering at BestBuy. Don’t even wait in line at the Verizon retail store. Instead, stay glued to your computer the early hours of November 6th and buy the Droid from VerizonWireless.com around 12:30AM! According to the Official DroidDoes Tweet, that is exactly when you’ll be able to purchase it online:You’re paying at least [...]

    If ordering the phone on-line, does one just pick a service plan on-line as well?

    Since I'll be new to Verizon, I was hoping a Verizon sales rep would help me figure out the right service plan for me (I know I have to include the $29.99 'data plan' but there are lots of options as to the underlying voice & messaging minutes etc.)

    Also, if someone who's new to Verizon orders on-line rather than at a store or through a real-person sales rep at Verizon's toll-free sales #, how will I know how to activate the phone and transfer my mobile # from AT&T to Verizon when the phone arrives in the mail?

    I believe I read in the comments of an Engadget post that if you're porting your current number from another carrier, you'll need to go into a store.

    You can actually do everything online, including porting your number :) I did that with my last line I added, ported a number over from ATT.

    Yup you can port your number online, not have to worry about rebates and will have directions on how to complete your activation come right in the box with your new phone.

    Make sure you do not cancel service on the line with the number you want ported until AFTER the port is complete.

    That is correct, do not cancel your existing service. Once your number is ported it will automatically cancel service with the carrier you were with.
