Anybody else have any info about their area?
I called a few Verizon corporate stores in my location.
Some stores have a list you have to put your name on to get the Storm, some stores do not have a list, as in first come-first served.
One store had 40 names on a list, but told me they were only going to get 25 devices on launch date.
Very Frustrated, I got on a list with Verizon sales (nationwide), but did find a large corporate store in my area that is not doing the list system. I plan on waiting outside waaayyyy before they open to be first in line
On a side note, even some Verizon "reseller" locations are utilizing a "list" system.
I just called Best Buy in bridgewater NJ and they are taking pre-orders with a 50 dollar deposit down and you are gauranteed a phone on release date. they have the 16th down as the date that they were given by verizon and they said it will be between 199.00 and 299.00 with a 2 year contract. You have to go to the store and give the deposit and fill out the form but you are GAURANTEED a phone on launch day. so I am going after work.
