    AARRRRRGGGGGG!!!! How the **** does a verizon store at a major mall get a shipment of ONLY 3 storms?! The store manager told me that all of the other locations around here got shipments of roughly around 80 and 100. So now the manager has my number and he'll call me when a new shipment comes in (which he says "might be" today) and put one on hold for me to pick up. So basically I woke up at 5 to get to the mall by 6 and waited 2 hours till it opened at 8 to get a manger's card.

    Anyone else get screwed over?

    At my store in VT they had about 200, but they went fast. I was lucky to get one because I went early.

    Defects.. Or they were just put aside for 'special customers.'

    I arrived at my store in CT around 6:30am. There were two people in front of me in line. They told me that they heard that this store was carrying 10 storms. I called yesterday and someone told me that they were going to have three storms.

    Time passes by and the manager comes out, tells us that they will only be selling three storms. Meanwhile, in the background another employee is there ringing up a storm.

    They had two on the floor and I'm pretty sure more than one employee there had a storm. Plus the one he rang up. I reckon that there were 10 storms, but after they put some aside/on the floor, there were only three left for the public.

    Luckily I grabbed the third storm. I am back at my place fooling around with it. Either way, verizon really dropped the ball. It's sad that they did not learn from their past mistakes.

    In Matteson, IL (south suburb of Chicago) they said they couldn't tell us how many they got in. I was #3 and had to order it...I am an existing customer...maybe not for long.
