they will be in the store friday. they have no waiting list. they will not ... BlackBerry Storm forum
well,here's the scoop from my store...
they will be in the store friday. they have no waiting list. they will not open the doors early. they open at 9:00 but will be there at 6:45 to receive some sort of training. when you get in the store they will give you some sort of flyer to insure that you get a storm. they have 60 flyers and are not sure if they will have more than 60 storms or not.
ugh...starting to get a sick feeling. i guess i'll be at the door at 6:45 like a highschool kid waiting on the new playstation, harry potter book or some other new toy.
You'll be like an iPhone fan, but not as geeky (hopefully )
Proof of absence is not absence of proof.
You can always hope. LOL

He said that if you are not on the call list and are there at opening, you will not get a phone until everybody in the list gets one...or runs out...
strange how some stores have lists and some don't.

Yeah it is pretty weird .... but hopefully I'll be sitting in line around 8am or if they are open whoop de doo.
Blackberry rocks my world....
WOW!!! I dont know if I want to switch to Verizon or not....my sis has a 9am apt for me to go to her store and play with it....they are making apts at her store to demo the darn thing! LOL!
Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?
The cat's gonna be prowling the streets ready to pounce on his storm!
He'll be hissing at people and showing his claws, trying to scare them out of the line

I'll be interested to see how much of a "rush" there really is. Apple was advertising all over the place AND the news was covering it which only increased the hype.
I've seen a few blackberry storm commercials but nothing that made it stand out from any other blackberry (to those who haven't been waiting it... ie, nobody on this forum).
The iphone this year wasn't a HUGE rush. If you wanted to find one opening day, you could find it somewhere.
I'm thinking this will be the same. Some stores will sell out, others wont.
Go to a Verizon store that is tucked away in a obscure part of town that no one really knows about or goes to. I am sure the mall ones will have lines early. Where there's a will there's a way, I always say.
ok i have one q.If i get one unlocked from UK and want to use with Tmo here....will i be able to do it ..now that TMo has 3G services active in major US cities too?
Pls let me know why/why not? what will be troubles i would face.
I spoke with the manager of the local Verizon store today. He said they have all been trained in Riot Control & CPR just in case it gets wild..
Who said it's only a phone?

I have an appointment for 8:00 Friday morning to pick one up at the Verizon store in Tallahassee, FL. I have the credit approval, my name on a list and no assurances that I will get a phone (I plan on showing up around 7:30). My boss told me to make sure I get it and bring it in the office first thing. I told him I might be late for work waiting, filling out paperwork, etc. and he said he didn't care.
Are you really... missing work... for a phone? ... c'mon man...

You have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth;
therefore, listen and observe twice as often as you speak.
