    I'm honestly starting to get really pissed off at this. I've been wanted the droid since I first heard about it in march, and ordered one as soon as the store in my town allowed me to (April 20th).

    It has been over a week since it was suppsoed to ship. First verizon told me it was delayed until the 4th, then on the 4th it was delayed until the 7th. Then they delayed it until the 14, and now the 29th!
    The 29th! Are they bloody serious?

    What is the hold up. It seems that everyone else has gotten one with no hitches or errors. Are they in that high demand? If so, then why not ship out what they've got in the warehouse?

    I'm beginning to wonder if this is a manufactured shortage, like we saw with the Wii, or Pokemon cards. If so, this is a massive dick move on their part...

    Does anyone know what is going on with Verizon? Is there an easier way to get this amazing phone? Am I alone here in my issue? All online orders are listed as "Delayed until the 29th" now as well :(

    You didn't mention your location. Maybe that has something to do with it. Where are you?

  3. Maybe try a different store or even order it online?

    Be patient. Alot of people want this phone, and you also have to realize, some of us have been waiting since November of LAST YEAR.

    That doesn't seem right. I know people who have ordered around your time frame and already have it. They are in certain store keep looking a little farther.

    If not, let Verizon know your anger and if you get to the right manager you should get it sooner.

    That's what I would do..

    As much as I don't condone this type of stuff, why do I always find myself chuckling when I see a post like this?

    Be careful ordering from Amazon though, if you need a deposit your order will be canceled. I would try ordering from the Verizon web site.

    My family bought 3 Incredibles 3 days after launch from an authorized verizon dealer (as opposed to a verizon store). They were getting more in too. Have any dealer stores in your area?

    Don't go with amazon. I was supposed to get the incredible today, then that got pushed back to next week, now they are telling me it is backordered 5-7 weeks. Great...

    That's strange. A buddy of mine went into a Verizon store on Wednesday to buy it and they were out so they put in an order and gave him overnight shipping. He got it yesterday (Thursday).

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll try some of those places tomorrow.
    I would advise anyone else who finds this thread to avoid doing that at all cost. Everyone I know of who's done this has seen their orders constantly delayed.

    Just order the phone from Customer Care, they'll connect you to the sales dept, and there ya go. They may say it'll take a week like they told one of my friends, but he got it in 2 days. This was on Monday that I told him to order it. Give it a shot...Good luck in your Incredible Quest..

    yeah, because Verizon has the almighty authority to shat a phone out and mail it. They only sell the product, they don't make the product. If HTC is behind on production, raising whatever stink you want isn't going to hurry things along.
