VZW now taking orders for the 9850
Just called 611 and ordered my new 9850. Will have it on Wed. was $167 under the new every 2 program. Was able to place the order with the phone rep with no issues, she didn't blink when I asked to order it.
So if you don't want to wait until the 8th to order one online or the 15th to get one at the stores, then just call 611 and place the order with a rep.
Enjoy!Get it done!

Dude ! I just tried at 9pm in SoCal and they shot me down ! The girl jacked up and asked her Supervisor and he said No . She said they have it available, but she's not allowed to pre-order it just yet . She said just call back on the 8th and request overnite shipping to get it by Friday instead of Monday . . . Dammit ! . .

Sounds like you got lucky but a lot of VZW reps dont know what they should or shouldnt be doing so if the system allows them to do it, it seems more people will be able to do this. Just keep calling till you get one that does.INSTANT BlackBerry Unlocking on xBlackBerry.com

Dude ! Just ordered it too ! Like you said , it's good to be a long-term VZ customer ! I guess it helps if you find some girl that sounds cute and dingy too ! She said it may ship tomorrow or Thursday , so i told her to throw in overnite shipping so i wouldn't have to wait until Monday ! . . Whooooooo !

I just got my order in successfully with confirmation #...but she said it wasn't gonna ship until the 8th...is that the same as what everyone's getting? the cost is $199....she said they're sending out standard shipping, and I told her I wanted next day shipping, so she said she's going to send a change order and will call me back for credit card number for next day shipping...
This is how I did it, called, then say "operator", it transferred me...
I said: "I want to order a phone"
she said "Sure, which phone"
I said: "The Blackberry Torch"
her: "OK sir, let me look...oh, I don't have this phone available. Let me look at something for you"
me: "OK, I know it's coming out in a day or two, and a few of my buddies were able to put their orders in already"
her: "Yes, I see it coming out, but I can't order it. Let me check one more thing sir"...."OK, do you want this shipped to the same address on file?"
me: "yes ma'am"
her:" OK, it's letting me put the order through. What is your credit card number?"

I just got off the phone with a lovely lady by the name of Jasmine at customer service. She was very helpful. I'm still in Contract because my service has been on hold since I'm overseas but I still have my 100 dollar discount (don't ask how it worked out cuz I have no idea haha). With tax and everything and using my discount it would have been 217 and some change out the door. But she had no problem going through with the order. Now I gotta wait 2-3 weeks for it to get flown to the base here in Okinawa. haha in conversation with her she was commented about how nice the phone looked though. She said she'd never seen the phone before but it looks really nice. I told her it's cuz it's not supposed to come out till the 8th and she was just like oh ahah. But like I said no problems here.

I just called and asked for it. She said it's not available till the 8th. Then she asked me to hold, came back and said she could order it. I didn't go through with it because the price she gave me was $217 tax included. I'm eligible for a new phone, so I'm wondering why other people were able to get it for $50 less. She also said if I ordered it today it would be here Thursday or Friday and that someone would need to be home to sign for it.

Gzaha the 200 price is if you have the 100 dollar new every 2 credit. you must still be in contract though. I think depending on how much your plan is you get extra discounts on your contract renewal. Like between 69.99-79.99 it's 50 and above 79.99 was a 100 dollar discount I believe. Then your 100 credit.

Anyone know how much it is if you just buy it outright? I'm still under contract but the Torch is tempting...so tempting. Might be a very early Christmas present for me from my cats and horses.God save us all. Go Sharks.
