    Yeah the phone and online reps are notorious for giving bad information. The real thing is until there is a formal announcement they know just as much as you do.

    If you go back to the first page of this thread. I posted my online chat w/ a verizon rep saying they had no idea when the preorders would start, 5 minutes later the preorders went live.

    correction : second page of this thread

    Just pre-ordered mine in grey and I can't wait. Even if the date is 11/27, Verizon might surprise us with an early delivery but it will be an early Christmas regardless!

    There is maybe hope for us that need either a 32 or 64 gig version.

    Samsung online chat says 32 gig version (only and no 64 gig) will be available and Samsung customer 1-888 number says 32 gig and 64 gig will be available, but neither could tell me when.

    they said call verizon and we know how that will go. (but if someone wants to call, please post your results).

    This is so dumb! What I would give to NEVER EVER talk to VZW again related to buying or servicing a device. I am fine talking to verizon about my wireless service/signal, but would rather NEVER deal with them as far as hardware/device sales/service goes.

    DFran.....I Love You Bro.

    Definitely an A for effort. I still think the 16gb's lone release is just a gauge for potential 32gb and 64gb demand.

    Don't laugh, but I think I'm gonna pay the $100 insurance fee to replace my Stellar (lol) and wait it out until Mid-December.

    After last night's ordeal, I'm completely done as well regarding the sales side. How did the lady that I was online chating w/ not know that the device was about to go online for sale. And within the next 5 minutes. Still trying to figure that one out. :hmmmm:

    If you ever want to find out anything regarding new phones, call a store and speak to a sales associate. Unless they were instructed not to, they will tell you a roundabout date for when a phone is being released, if not the exact date. If they say they don't know, they usually don't.

    I would rather buy a VZW compatible device from someone other than VZW with ZERO VZW influence on the device and ZERO interaction with VZW. Can't stand ANYTHING they do with the hardware OR software, and can't stand their total ineptitude, smoke and mirrors, and draconian methods of handling new hardware release availability. Would much rather just buy hardware from some source and supply chain VZW has ZERO to do with.

    For now that's impossible and probably almost unlawful.

    My problem is I only have 10 gig free on my 32gig siii and my wife is getting really tired of the tiny tiny iPhone 4s screen and the 5 is no better, she wants my siii, i'll have to do something by the end of the year no matter what, so a useless 16 gig may have to do, or maybe that HTC will be great, not sure, let me know in a pm what you do.

    If I don't pre-order with Verizon now, when will they sell it in store? Is it the 11/27 that I can just walk-in and get the phone or much later?

    You have to be rooted to do it, but I remember seeing a guide to use your sd card as internal storage. Not a solution for everybody, but for those that will root anyways it's a nice option to have.

    Ordered mine this morning as well in white. For all the bashing that the reps get about being clueless, the guy that took my order was pretty solid. He said that while 11/27 is the ship by date, there is a chance it could come early. 11/27 is the absolute latest ship date. In addition, he also helped me keep my unlimited data plan on my primary line by doing some juggling on my other line, saving me $15 a month and not having to deal with a cap.

    I don't know that this means anything, but I thought I would share. I checked my order status an hour ago and it told me an expected shipping date was unavailable. I checked it again a minute ago and it told me 11/16. I am not optimistic, but I thought I would share.

    I went back to get a screenshot and it is back to telling me that a shipping date is unavailable at this time. At least I got to have my hopes up for one night.
