    I live in Alabama and I pointed out that it is a Christmas discount for upgrading from a 3G phone to a 4G phone and renewing a new every 2 line. The CSR saw that it was true in her promos list and gave me the promo. She said it was not regional specific. She did ask where I got the promo code from and I told her from a forum thread.

    Another long time lurker here finally posting for the first time after the big news. I've been following this thread for two weeks now and I just wanted to say thanks to all of you guys and the mods for making the wait bearable and for the most part enjoyable despite of all the ups and downs with rumored releases, especially last Friday. I've laughed, I cursed, got my hopes up, and then got them down, but all in all it's been fun reading the forum everyday. It feels great to finally have this confirmed and it's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Like many of you I've called stores, talked to reps, tweeted angry messages at @VZWNews, considered canceling service and getting the GSM version, and all of those things. I'm glad the wait is finally over for all of us and wish you all the best of luck tomorrow heading out to the stores! My nearest local store has over 40 to sell tomorrow and I've got an appointment first thing in the morning at 9:00 to pick it up, but I'll do a drive by at 8:00 just to make sure there isn't a line or anything :)

    It's been fun guys and I look forward to getting more into the forums once I get my device and share in the excitement with all of you!

    Thanks again for all of the help, info, tips, and the humour! You guys (and gals) are the best!

    Working in IT has its perks.

    Are you saying you are going to have it shipped to your door when you have 500 verizon corp stores in the chicagoland area that you can go to?

    The only twitter people I am still following related to this are britishturbo and droid_life. The others were an end to a means, and their attitudes are not something I care to see in my twitter feed. Ever again.

    I really want to go get it tomorrow morning (I'm in Denver now and there is VZW like 2 blocks from my loft) but I have such a full day at work tomorrow if I buy it in the morning I'm sure to not get my work done tomorrow so if it's delivered to me at work friday I can stop working and play away .

    I don't trust myself but we'll see how I feel around midnight tonight

    I'm going at lunch to play with the SGN but I doubt I will walk out with one. I still want to wait a bit of real world time and I want to see if I can find it on sale at Amazon. I know it isn't likely, and I might even be screwing myself not to snap up the initial shipment (if there will be any scarcity) but I feel I should wait.


    Not that I haven't waited long enough.

    Well, I've had to inform the 3 stores around me that there was a press release and it's official. It's as if they have no idea what this phone means to the future of humanity! I'll just show up tomorrow morning I guess and stalk them. Hehe.

    Way to take it on the chin and then take it like a man. We're all glad you were wrong too, but in all fairness, this was the most crazy release EVER!

    I've actually posted twice. Once about 5 minutes after the press release when out, and again about 5 minutes ago. But no one sees them because this thread is moving so fast. I'M TOTALLY PUMPED AND HAPPY TO BE PROVEN WRONG!!!! :)

    I know that the Incredible sold out and some stores sold out of the Thunderbolt .

    When I got to the Downtown Denver store for the Tbolt 30minutes before they opened there was 5 people in front of me by 5 min till there were another 20 behind me and from what I heard by 11am they were sold out. But other stores had plenty , but that is a high traffic store

    For everyone who's still bagging on P3 (to each their own, guess I have thicker skin when it comes to him) here is ONE retweet of his that I think we can all agree is pretty fantastic:
    [​IMG]

    Pretty much sums up how most of us felt leading up to this end.

    Is it really going to be released at 1am EST? As in I can go pick it up at 1am tonight? Or is that the normal way of doing things, and it really just means normal business hours tomorrow?
