    I ordered mine online (not through Verizon though) and I think that if you know what you want already, its easier to just buy it online. The benefit to buying in the store is that you can get the phone right then & there and the salespeople will halp you set the Curve up and move all your info over. But they often have discounts online that won't be honored in the stores. I would check out both and then do what's right for you.

    If you do go into the store and your device is not going the BES, then make sure they give you $29.99 data plan, not the $44.95. The advantage to the store is that you get it right away. Right now online or ordered via a CS rep they will give the $70 rebate right away. The store, you will need to mail it in. NE2 can be done anywhere.

    Verizon is generally very quick about shipping products purchased via their website. You can also find much better prices online as a rule of thumb. As stated above, do make sure that you are being put on the correct data plan for you.

    It's Saturday you can go down now and get it..... if it's ordered online you won't have it till Monday or Tuesday...

    Also if you go to the store and explain online prices vs in store they will and have in the past honored them to me.. You will still get a good deal... maybe it matter who you talk to in the store...


    GO GET IT NOW!!!

    I wonder, is shipping free? With the cost of petrol these days, might be something to consider, no?

    o you can always take mass transit lollollol
    that way you dont have to drive and you get more time to figure out the curve

    Plus, my $70 mail-in rebate just came yesterday...less than 2 weeks from when I mailed it out! So, if u can hold out for the rebate, I'd take the plunge.

    I purchased my Curve through a sales rep, and they did overnight shipping which didn't show up on the receipt.

    I ordered my Curve from VZW's website Tuesday night--my wife had it charging at 1pm Thursday. Live and set up by 5pm.

    Net cost with NE2: zero. No waiting for rebates or anything.

    what all exactly comes with the curve(apps and what not) when you first get it, before installing anything?

    Mine came with OS 4.3.something or other, and the usual suspects: BBM, BB maps, browser, brickbreaker. I added the shortcuts to Fidelity, ESPN, and upgraded to 4.5 and got Docs to Go. It's really all I need.
