    ... will you get in line for the Droid before the Verizon store opens?

    Mine opens at 7 but am not sure how early to get in line. I head the release of the storm had crazy lines and anticipate this being even worse.

    I would say no earlier than 5am...Try and talk to the manager and see how many units they have.

    do you think running out of units will be a big problem? or should they be fairly well stocked..... although it will be a pretty huge release

    As an interesting experiment, I was playing with Google Trends to compare searches for iPhone near it's launch and searches for Droid now.

    Google Trends: droid, iphone 3G, iphone, droid does

    iPhone had many, many more searches near it's launch than Droid has right now, around 3-4 times as many. If Motorola is using iPhone as an index for production numbers, there should be enough phones.

    That said, I'm getting there shortly before Verizon opens so I can have my phone all day. :D

    I'll be in Las Vegas for a conference, so... I just called the local store.. They're opening at 7. I plan on being there at 6:30ish, not expecting a long line. I really hope it comes fully charged, but I doubt it.

    My VZW opens at 9am, and as far as I know, they won't be opening early. I live in the middle of a state where roughly 70% of the population believes that technology is evil, 20% don't care about anything but hunting and fishing, and 8% have to work.

    That said, I have a movie all qued up and ready to go so I can sit in my car and watch a movie until the store opens. Their stock is decent (I called today and asked), so I don't need to be first in line. I'll just watch a movie until someone steps up to the door... then I'll hop out and stand behind them.

    My local Verizon kiosk in the mall is opening at 8 a.m. on Friday. The doors to the mall open at 7 a.m. for the mall walkers. My rep is coming in on his day off and has given me an 8 a.m. appointment so I'm pretty well set.

    Mine is opening at 7AM, I'll be there at 6:30.

    I believe my wife will be filing my commitment papers later that day, based on the look she gave me when I told her that. ;)

    Then... can I just wait until friday afternoon and then get your phone for free after she has dropped you off?

    It would almost be worth a 2 day wait to get it for free. Almost.

    My store opens at 7 so I'll be there at 6:30 with coffee.

    They are tight lipped about how many units they are getting.

    They keep saying they would like to ship it to me and I always say thanks, but I want to pick it up.

    I've done this at midnight for freaking video game releases so you can bet I'll do it for my first new phone in over 3 years.

    My retail friend is holding a unit for me so I can come in after class since he gets in at 10am (and I promised I'd buy it from him) and I start class at 10am.

    I would, but I have a new project starting that I need the info for. Plus another project is due, and so forth. It's also a 3hr class to start out with...lol.

    I'm in film production (hobby degree) so every week we do something new. The project that's due is a PSA I had to film.

    It's all good. I'll pick it up on the way home.

    I pre ordered at best buy and called and asked when my appt was. He said they would call me when the phones arrive. Then he said he would put mine on top. They open at 10. All that said i will be at Verizon at 5:45 sitting in my truck just in case. If something crazy happens i have the Best Buy ready at 10 :D I am paranoid lol.

    My store is opening at 7am, and as of the other day said the only have 20 units. So I will probably show up around 5am and make sure I am first in line. I did not pre-order at BB, so I need to make sure I guarantee myself one at the VZW store.

    VZWOffers just confirmed there should be enough phones:

    We definitely plan on having plenty of stock on Friday :) Appreciate all the enthusiasm you guys, we're excited too.
