    No one at my local VZW knew when preorders where going to be available. Anyone have any luck on your end?

    My local VZW stores didn't even know of the launch. LMAO

    Or that they even Press released the phone.

    Needless to say, no pre-orders.

    Yeah, I heard a verizon employee saying they will not be accepting pre-orders for some reason. But I don't know how reliable that person was.

    they don't tell the grunts anything. they dont want them suggesting the droid, they want them selling whatever is in-stock now and then upselling the droid later. :)

    I don't see how they could not do pre orders unless they have a ton in stock. There might be a bunch of pissed off people next Friday.

    they didn't do pre-orders with the Storm when it first came out. Considering the hype-train Verizon had behind that device, i'd be surprised if they do preorders for the Droid

    My VZW store didn't even know the release date until I told them. I am still looking for the off contract price.

    I'll be doing the same if I can't find more info. I'm just scared that all VZW stores are not getting it.

    When the Iphone 3G came out my dad tried four stores that never got one.

    Yeah, but you guys have to remember... a lot of the people in these stores... it's just a job. They come in and sell the stuff. There might be a few of them who are really into the stuff and researching the new phones etc... but most of them are probably more concerned about getting their paycheck and going out drinking on Friday night. There is training material available on this stuff.. but that doesn't mean they take every single employee and train them on the latest gear a week before it's released. I think most people who visit phandroid and android forums know 100x more about these phones than 95% of the salespeople at Verizon stores.

    The same principle applies to most tech retail. I've learned to live with it.

    That is very true. I just wouldnt let them answer the phones around launch times like this unless they know what they are talking about. Oh well rant over, i will just wait till next Friday

    according to the DroidDoes account on twitter, theres no presales (see for yourself: Droid (DroidDoes) on Twitter). although, you cant take things on twitter as 100% fact all the time, so i guess we can still have a LITTLE hope.


    but damn, even the box looks awesome haha. check it out, thanks to boygenius: Yfrog - twla - Uploaded by boygenius

    Based on everything I have seen today, I would guess there are no pre-sales. SUCKAGE.

    Based on the "Official" droid Twitter, there will be no pre-order for the Droid:
    Droid (DroidDoes) on Twitter

    Yep...the Droid has it's own Twitter page...Ugh....

    According to the manager at my local VZW store, no pre-orders. Just first come, first serve. I will be ordering online.

    I was thinking that would be the best way too. They've got that free overnight shipping thing going right now. You only have to wait an extra day for the phone but you don't have to wait in line or deal with people. I'm anxious to get this phone, but one day is not a big deal.
