    In the past, I've bought phones from LetsTalk for much lower than retail. But, I'm not sure if they will have the Bionic on release date. Where are you going to buy your Bionic, and how much are you going to be paying? :thinking:

    No Costco in my area, so I'll be visiting a corporate Verizon store early Thursday morning. Going to stop in tomorrow to see how they are going to handle the launch. Last year, there was a line for the Droid X and they opened early.

    Looks like most of you or going for the Costco deal. How is the return policy? Can I buy the Bionic at release, and return it (no questions asked) for the Droid Prime 89 days later?

    Also, does anyone know if LetsTalk sells phones at launch date?

    Would check out Costco, but unfortunately I need to put the phone on my bill, so Verizon Corporate Store it is then.

    CostCo FTW - I'll have the cash in the bank in the AM, so I'm set.

    If I didn't have cash, I'd debate and see if I could do the VZW store and put it on the bill, or wait until I had the cash and do CostCo....

    Diamond Wireless. Though the Costco deal is verry tempting, just don't have a card now. Though the card would pay for its self. But most likely the phones will sell out befor the wife and I can get there. So Diamond Wireless.......

    Maybe.

    Nice. That means I don't have to push you down when I try to be the first one in line. J/K :D

    I want to get it from Costco (for the return policy), but don't have a card. :(

    Sign up! I think the membership is like $50 or so for a year. Just think that you are buying an extended insurance policy (90 days) and accessories for $50...great deal, right? ;)

    Plus, buy a 100 pack toilet paper for $30 while you're at it. Jk I don't think they are $30. :p

    You know what? That's a great idea. I've been needing some toilet paper; I ran out a few months ago. :eek:

    Ummm I'm afraid to ask what you've been using as TP during the past few months. :thinking: haha.

    Buy it from there you're set for another few months. :D

    My house is a "green" house. I use washable rags; you know how many trees I save? J/K

    All BS aside, I'm probably gonna go with a friend or co-worker. If they are too busy Thursday, I'll fork out the $50.
