Only got 2 people waiting. I thought there would be at least 10+ people there.
This isn't the iphone....there's more hype on the forums than real world.
No one is reporting lines...
Agree with the lack of advertising for the most part I'm sure most people have no idea about the phone
The Verizon store in Boston at Downtown Crossing had 7 people in line when it opened this morning at 8am. I was one of them, and have my new Thunderbolt getting its first charge by my side!
No lines at either big Verizon store here in the city I live in.
I did see a couple of people in their cars, though, waiting before opening time. Not too unusual, but a bit early.
Right, it's not the iPhone release at Verizon. But this new device gives the users who would otherwise buy an iPhone another great alternative.
Got to my store in hazlet nj and I'm #10 in line. There is prob another 5 behind me now. Any u guys here? Ha
Posting from iPad 2. No xoom in sight here or dummy bolts
Dang, they'd better have a demo T-bolt at the store here.. I'm headed out to there now.
I demoed the tb and it's faster. Was getting 5mpbs down.
lol@ no lines. I feel kind of silly with my appointment, but hopefully there will be a few people in line so I can just walk in and grab my phone and then walk out. Oh and I'm going to take a print-out of my $444.99 screenshot price and see if I can haggle a little.
I got there at 8 am EST. I was the only one there until about 8:15. They started letting people in around 8:40 am. There was about 10 total. The HTC rep that was there took my picture since I was the first customer. I also got a $50 corporate discount (not eligible for NE2 until 7/25) which I was not expecting! I also picked up the extended battery (2750 so almost twice the capacity of the stock battery) for $37.50 (25% discount applied). So I consider this a good morning!
Does it fit the current back?
No it doesnt. It comes with a battery cover. It does stick it out a little more but I have no problem with it.
So do they make an extra fat case/holster to fit it or do you have to walk around with a naked Thunderbolt with a gland problem?
The ThunderBolt will be a limited device, with all the release problem between VZW and HTC and with the fact that the Incredible 2 will be here soon. Look for the ThunderBolt to be a limited device only out for a few months.
And remember the Thunderbolt was granted only conditional approval by vzw.

What's so hot about the Inc 2 ??
Not to mention, with Apple, you only see lines @ Apple Stores, because there are so few throughout the country (well, more now, but still, a lot less compared to all the corporate stores and 3rd party retailers). you don't see tons of lines on iphone launches @ AT&T stores.
that said, each store will get a lot less than the apple store would, so you run the risk of sellout more.
Actually I got the Leather Pouch that is meant for the Droid X but it fits perfectly with it.
