    I was at Best Buy this morning and they only had 2 devices and they wouldnt sell them at retail. Only with a 2 year contract.

    Got lucky today....Called BB to see when they would have the preorders in stock. They said they had them in already so I drove down and picked mine up. .65 OS but I haven't had any problems yet aside from being a little sluggish. Also, not sure if the sales guy screwed up, but I walked out of there paying only $160 (plus $50 for the preorder) with no rebate, PLUS they threw in a Plantronics BT headset for free.

    I had no trouble at best buy. I didn't even pre-order, and I still walked out with the phone! Their price is $199, no rebate, vs Verizon $249 with $50 rebate. I hate rebates! And yes, I got the $50 blue tooth headset for free also.

    for anyone in the bay area willing to drive, the best buy in brentwood (nor cal) had 3 last night. the bummer was that not one single phone in the 'mobile' area worked, they were all dummies!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ my Best Buy had 6 more than they had presold and there wasn't a single person waiting there when I arrived 5 minutes before opening! The guy even put it on hold for me for a few hours while I did a few other things. I'd highly recommend Best Buy, and no I don't work for them …

    So far it looks like nobody else has gotten 'screwed' by Best Buy. But, I didn't know you were supposed to wait for them to call you.

    Have you called them?

    it is on the standard verizon contract - ie no additional contract like some outlets have (such as cartoys) Not sure about buying it retail (contract free)

    i had a pre-order from best buy and my store only got five i was there at opening and got mine first. but as they were activating it verizons system went down and i had to wait an hour for the phone. no biggie i love it and i would reccomend best buy to anyone. i also got the free bluetooth that works great.
