    I thought they may not want you to get it retail because at some point (now?) you could plug in your sim and use in on AT&T and T-Mob. Doesn't it have a GSM radio as well? I've seen vendors online selling "unlocked" Storms, which leads me to think that it can be unlocked and used on the GSM networks.

    Verizon will ship your device to you. Needless to say, I got pretty angry when I heard this. I asked the manager, what if I would have waited outside in the cold for 6 hours prior to opening would they have shipped it to me then as well. He said that is going to be the policy for 30 days after launch to combat ebay sales of the device.

    This is making me really angry.

    Guess I'll be going to Best Buy as well. Dang it, should have pre-ordered.

    This is bad news...what's with the posts about $199 upgrade or $249 to upgrade if you arent eligble for one?? Grr
