    I dunno, I'm starting to think these stores without stock are telling the truth. Given how royally VZW has screwed the pooch, I don't find it inconceivable that they have screwed up the distribution of the phones to stores and some have them and others do not.

    Just stating it for the principle of the matter. Besides, as you may or may not know- I have little to contribute here except inappropriate jokes.

    Yes, agree, agree very much!
    Scott, we all saw it! Stop "thanks" fishing. :rolleyes: TBH many here, including myself, have gotten a lot of confirmation that this is happening today before you posted. ;)
    Just call your rep and hang tight, Thursday is almost upon us! :D

    both according to BT!!
    I think this is more serious. It seems more solid this time, especially since many of us here in this thread are hearing the same things from our real, live contacts outside this thread, lol!

    Funny there are definite influences on one and the other, ha ha!

    -If the production value of the picture is too high, there are no family members present, and no water mark from a Highschool or photography studio. It is probably a fake.

    OT -
    Congratulations on being cancer free! I was diagnosed with lymphoma in February. Last PET scan was clear. Welcome to the survivors' club.

    More OT - I used to live in Woodland Hills many moons ago, drove through Helena all the time. I even did a research paper on the place in HS.

    That's the thing. My gut says they are lying, especially since I went in there and spoke with them face to face on Sunday and found holes in their stories, but I just wish they would give me a straight answer. A week and a half ago they took my name down for when it comes in. Sunday and today they claim they never take names and no one will be calling me! I really need Verizon to just announce this thing already.

    Possible spoiler alert:

    Ooooh!! Duh!!

    Graham will come back to life. Remember when he gave the reed whistle to Snow and told her to blow it if she ever needed help? Well, I'm sure she has it somewhere, since she has the ring that Charming gave her.

    Once she toots, he will return!

    So last week they sent out the confirmation for the 9th on Monday or so, and sent out the "delayed" email Tuesday.. I would figure that today being Tuesday, do they really won't have a chance to send a "delayed" email any longer? Wouldn't sending a "delayed" email on a Wednesday be risky as there would be a few that wouldn't get it on time for Thursday? That would cause mass chaos.

    I don't think Scott is "thanks fishing", I think he is genuinely excited about this release and thought it added to the evidence pointing to the 15th. I can't blame him for that.

    Just like the 9th was looking like it, with people getting calls/appointments/etc, right? :) Just sayin'...we know nothing for sure until we hear it from VZW.

    Riddle me this: If Verizon is hot for this phone, if they want to get it selling before the holidays, why would they give it a silent/soft/quiet launch? The only thing I can think if is the RAZR. It's painfully obvious they are pushing that thing as I've never seen a phone pushed so maybe they want to minimize the impact to RAZR sales.

    Even that doesn't make sense to me. Why carry a product if you have more interest in selling other products? It's not a loss leader. Nope doesn't make any damn sense to me.

    Guys, I know this is a little selfish, but can you please put any Dark Knight Rises stuff in Hide tags? I'm trying to avoid learning anything about the movie as I truly want to be surprised, impressed, wowed. TIA.

    Yes, I've gone in RS twice. They were even less helpful. They were point blank like "we don't even know if this thing is ever gonna be released."

    I thought at least one report said there was an email VERY late on the 8th frantically calling for the release to be held back for the 9th?
