    Battery life doesn't seem too bad. I've been on 4g running speed test and messing with the phone pretty much non stopped for 2hours on a fully charged knock off battery and I'm at 81%

    Just heard word, they are just replacing sim cards for people with activation issues when activating the phone on a new line, then moving it to an existing. Heading back to the store now to get a new card and hopefully it will be fixed and working.

    Just got back from a local verizon store and they didn't even get any in. Not only no phones, but not accessories either. Nothing!! I checked their prices and they were charging about $100.00 more than anywhere else. I was the only one in the store. No other customers. I can see why.

    Loooove it, and it was well worth the wait. Husband was first in line this am and snagged one for both of us. We got them at a Verizon Corp store instead of BB, as we are paying full price and they were $100 cheaper per phone for a total of $200 in savings. Already had accessories so we were covered there. Husband said the csr said they had "plenty for a few days", glad we got ours. Hope everyone is enjoying theirs!

    Added: Also, the price was weird. Each phone was $599x2= $1198+ Tax. Should have been around $1300 after taxes, but it was only $1218. $20 tax for 2 phones?? Umm, that's a tax break I will RUN with. lol

    Got it today at my local VZW store at around 0930 here in OKC. I had already purchased accessories from Amazon about two weeks ago in anticipation for it's arrival. It is light years ahead of my trusty-but-crusty Eris. Well worth the $280 OTD=)

    Really enjoying so far. I'm coming from a BB Storm 2 that has been driving me crazy so anything would have been an upgrade, but I really like it.

    One gripe though, seems like a pretty big design flaw that the charging port is on the side of the phone that rests against the surface when using the kickstand...so you can't charge while using the kickstand. Bit of a pain for proping it up at my desk.

    Got mine first in the US. 0800 EST. Got it on a 1 year contract for $229.99. My buddy went to the same store 6 hours later and got it for $199.99 for 1 year. I sent a text to my salesman asking for a $30.00 refund to my account. I know i'm greedy. Love it so far.

    YES! That was the first thing I noticed. At least the kickstand supports it vertically though unlike the evo

    That's because they sell a Media dock that puts it in media mode when docked. It comes with an extra slot in back for extended or reular battery and the dock will fit the phone with extended battery in it. There is always a method to the madness.

    Time Bought: 1PM CST
    Line: 1st one to get it at that particular Z Wireless
    Contract: 2 Year, Unlimited Data/Voice
    Accessories: Seidio Innocase II Surface Burgundy
    Supply Level: Five when I walked in, three more came in from FedEx while I was there and as I was leaving, two other people were at the counter getting their TB activation done.
    Price Out the Door: Enough >.>...

    I was the first activation, so it took longer than a normal activation, but the people at this Z Wireless store are awesome and I was glad to wait.

    Due for upgrade officially on 3/28/11 but wanted to see if they'd let me do it earlier.
    Online - no.
    In store - no.
    Over the phone - yes.

    "Upgrading" from my Incredible. One year contract and they would NOT budge on the $319.99 price. That's alright. :)
