    I work at a verizon retailer and just found out that my store in newton and store in sparta will be getting roughly around 20 BB storms a piece midday friday. The store is called Tri-county audio. i know it is first come first served so the will not allow us to put any on hold.

    I want to go to the one in Jersey City, but I'm not sure. The lady I spoke with on Wednesday wasn't sure how many units they would be getting, but did say they had been recieving a lot of calls & there will be a line. Plus they open at 10 but she said be there by 9:30. I'm not sure whay to do. *sigh*

    Anyone who is planning on lining up at a corporate store in northern new jersey, hate to dash your hopes, but there is 1 store on the east coast getting 100--all the rest are getting 10. I am an indirect retailer. I was lucky enough to get mine through another authorized distributor--Verizon is holding back from indirect retailers. I have 75 coming in tomorrow at some point (probably late morning).

    I called the Rockaway store about an hour ago and got the (by now) very typical runaround. I was also told:

    "We might not be able to let you do the early upgrade (for eligible primary lines) in the store. We would have to order it for you and have it on Saturday."

    Now I've heard time and time again that this is a total crock of crap, but I don't want to get shafted. If this is the case, I'll just order it online anyway. There's apparently no guarantee that they would even have one for me Saturday if I wasn't allowed to upgrade at the store. It sounds like I might need to get the store # and manager name and file a complaint if things don't work out.

    So a rep I spoke to the other day just called me and asked if I wanted to have them ship me the phone directly and that it would come no later than tuesday most likely. She said the store got 50 phones in, and she envisioned them selling out within the first half hour to an hour. I told her that I would take my chances and if I don't get one I'll do that.

    Looks like my plan of getting to the store at 6 for their 7 o clock opening has just been pushed back to getting there around 4:30 or so =/

    retro: which three stores? Also, are you talking about VZW stores or authorized retailers (i.e., Circuit City, Best Buy, etc.) And if you can't name them all, is one of them Succasunna? What time are your stores opening?

    I would prefer to get my Storm in person tomorrow, but I don't want to debate with a poorly informed rep that I can't get one because I'm not a "new" customer.

    I stopped by there tonight to ask when they're opening and checked if they had a demo. They told me the same thing, come between 8 and 9 because "they will be going fast".

    Side note: If you miss out at that one, right down the road is Menlo Mall, they open at 10am. Too bad I have work at 8.
