    Pre purchase at BB guarantees you one on release day, right?

    According to the press release, looks like we can order online starting on the 17th, so I guess with overnight shipping we CAN have at our house by friday if we order on-line.

    I'm going this route as I hate lines.

    I literally just called the corporate store down the road from my work and set up an appointment (AKA reserved my phone and a time to get it) for Thursday after I get off work. They said store pricing will be released tomorrow and he said it is usually $299.99. I said the news.vzw site said it was $249.99, and he just said that they won't know for sure for sure until tomorrow. Awesome!

    "unlimited 4G LTE data plan is $29.99 monthly access."

    :eek::eek::eek:

    WOW. Seems VZW has taken a bad vibe launch effort and turned it into absolute gold. Who du' thunk it :thinking:

    Smart move VZW! The device will prime folks for 4G (through the year) and reward the early adopters :)

    Mobile Hotspot will be included through May 15 for no additional charge. After May 15, customers may choose to activate Mobile Hotspot for $20 for 2 GB of data per month.

    Does this mean that it will remain free for those buying prior to May 15 or you will only get two months free of Hotspot
