    Does Verizon offer preorders on upcoming handsets for consumers? Are we likely to see a preorder option for the 9550 appear before 28th Oct, as per Voda's?

    I searched this forum, but couldn't find anything that wasn't about Voda or VZW B2B stuff. I'm new to VZW, so am unsure as to whether they historically offer preorders.

    Thanks for any info.

    I just got off the phone with Verizon Customer Care (1-800-922-0204), and she had at first mentioned that she had no idea of the release date (she acknowledged the existence...) but I prodded and she checked on the update. IT IS OFFICIALLY to be released on the 28th, just like Sal had said, DonNguyen confirmed and so on...(if you remember Sal said it was going to be released on the 21st, and if not, no more than 7 days later)...21+7=28....

    But anyway, she said it will be available in ALL stores, online, or through the customer service line (as posted above).

    Oh, and through the stores, there will be no midnight release like there was with the Tour. Standard store hours

    Personally, I'm getting mine in person.

    Okay, thanks for the responses.

    However, I'm still wondering whether we'll be able to order the 9550 before the 28th...? Guessing not, you seem to be implying that they'll simply release it nationwide on 28th without people being able to reserve one.

    To clarify for those of us with poor attention spans......

    Is that $279.99 for two year contract - $100 rebate (mail in or instant) - NE2 ($50-$100) for a total of either $129.99 or $79.99?

    I hope so!

    You never know. Anything is possible. Like the Cleveland Indians GM Mark Shapiro deciding against his man-love affair for Manny Acta (who looks like he'll be getting the job as Indians Manager...BOOOOO)

    Everything I've seen and heard points to all channels on the 28th, but I'm hoping you're right too!

    What are the chances that they're still busy flashing a couple of hundred thousand units in distribution centers though, which is why it's "officially" all channels on the 28th?

    *fingers crossed for pre-orders & for the leak gods to rain .327 or .328 on us tonight*
