    I was at Best Buy in Muncie, IN, an hour ago. They said they will have it on the 21st. Of course, they also said it would retail for $550, so take it for what it's worth.

    What? It'll retail for $50 bucks less than what they have on their own website? Interesting...

    Wow, I can't believe you live so close to me.... Sorry it's just unusual to see people who actually know about Muncie, IN. I actually pre ordered mine from that Best Buy. What about you?

    A local Verizon store just quoted me $619 for full retail. My head is spinning with lack of concrete info.

    So it's $619 out the door? That's tax included?

    This isn't a correct answer to the question. First off, which Storm was the poster referring to? And second, it's very possible to unlock the NA GSM bands on the 9530 and use it on any GSM carrier in the world.

    Not sure how many people are going to try and ship over a 9500 from overseas and attempt to use it with EDGE only (3G not available). I have a feeling it will be more problematic than useful at this point.

    Also, good luck to anyone trying to "unlock" the Verizon storm 9530 to use it elsewhere on a GSM carrier. Let me know how that works for ya.

    My opinion of course.

    I'm going to wait until I can actually handle the Storm before buying. The guy at Best Buy said people either love it or hate it, and my 8830 still works well for me.

    We get a 15% discount because my wife teaches at Ball State. I'm not sure if that applies to purchases, but I'll probably talk to the VZW store in Fort Wayne and try ordering over the phone. No one seems to be quite sure what the retail will end up being.
