Here is my problem. Fed - Ex does not deliver to my house until about 4:00 pm usually. I am going out of town on Thursday, leaving about 2:00. I am afraid if I preorder, I will be gone before Fed-Ex can make the delivery. I will be gone thru the weekend, and really want to take the new phone with me. There is no corporate verizon store in my small town. There is a privately owned verizon store, but they will not be getting the incredible on Thursday. I spoke with them this morning and they will not be able to get the phone until about Tuesday of next week at the earliest - so that is out. The closest Best Buy or Verizon Corp. store is a bit over an hour away. Waiting in the store will most likely be another 30 min to hour. I can't leave work for 3 hours. I maybe able to talk my wife into taking the time, but she will be preparing for our trip, so that will be inconvenient at best. I called the store, they can not hold one for me. They do not have them yet an the rep told me they do not have a system for holding phones. I asked him, due to my drive, if he could personally hold one for an hour but I do not put much stock into that. He did say they were getting 50 in and doesn't expect an immediate sell out. Does anyone have any advice?
