    It is not on the VZW website yet so I called *611 and they took my order for the Bionic. Total cost was 314 after taxes. It is being shipped via Fedex overnight so I should revcieve it by 3:00 tomorrow.

    Interesting. Is Verizon that screwed up that you will get different answers on something like this depending on who you talk to?

    I thought you were lying...but I just ordered it over telesales. $340 was my total ( i guess since early upgrade fee of $20). I'll have it by 7pm tomorrow ..unless it comes when I'm at campus or if my roommates aren't home..then i'll be screwed until I pick it up at the FedEx place on Friday. So excited you told me this dude!

    Im having some bad luck this morning. Tried to call but Verizon keeps saying My upgrade is up January 2013... 2013?! ... I purchased my last phone on a 1 year contract in 2009... I had 2 upgrades on the account this year. What's happening? Figures my luck would go south around the release of the phone.

    edit: just called -- I DO have 2 upgrades available.. and the rep confirmed tomorrow is the day "We'll be letting those goes tomorrow" and he tried to see if he could have me pre-order one but ultimately said he couldn't and asked me to call back tomorrow. So tomorrow's the day... one more day.

    Check your upgrade dates on the VZW website, call them on the phone while you have the website up and do not let them get off the phone until they honor it.

    haha it's greatly appreciated. My friend butt dialed me( that's why I'm awake this early). I couldn't go back to sleep so as usual, I got on androidcentral and saw this. I gotta thank my friend for waking me up and you again for telling us. I'm just nervous I won't be here and I'll miss it...plus my apartment numbers are really messed up so according to mapquest, it's not an address...so I hope it still comes here. Last time I missed something from FedEx here, I had to drive all the way to Johnson City, TN (about an hr away from Boone, NC) to pick it up. Don't get me wrong tho, I would definitely do it for the Bionic, no questions asked lol.

    I just tried and got the sorry its not available until tomorrow. Also Telesales doesnt open for another 20 mins, so you got a rep that just went ahead and keyed the order early. Gratz.

    You can call back and have them switch the delivery to UPS and then you do not need to sign for it.

    oh really? I might hold off on that since I live in college apartments, not that I don't trust everyone but just to be safe. I usually leave a note saying i authorize you to leave order # xxx and sign the note & stuff and they'll leave it at the door (this is at my home address) but since i'm at school and I don't really know my neighbors too well, I think I'll just pray that my roommates are in my apartment when it comes

    I just ordered mine also!!!

    They wanted to charge me $12.99 for overnight shipping instead of 2 day for free. The rep finally found a code to give me overnight for $2.00.

    The rep just called me back and said they were opening up pre-orders as of 8 am. He put in an order for me with overnight shipping.

    Unfortunately he was unable to waive the early upgrade fee but he credited my monthly bill for the amount anyways.

    Yay!

    Made 2 calls this morning. First one to telesales. They told me they would call me at 8am tomorrow to get the order in. Then I called customer support. He told me that they were not preordering.

    They really don't have their act together. My first call the rep said not until tomorrow. I called back 10 minutes later and now the rep is telling me no problem, in stock, will have it tomorrow delievered by 3:00PM. Waiting for her to finish the order.

    Now she just came back and said can not be ordered until tomorrow

    They are taking orders. They are not taking orders. They are charging for TWO day shipment. They are calling back and saying next day for $2.

    Ehh, I'll wait until tomorrow morning and order online. My upgrade is clearly stated there, my corporate discount is stated there and entering the FREEOVERNT code gets it to me over night, on Friday, for sure.
