    Verizon Wireless has said it expects inventory shortages as well.
    WTF I thought this was the opposite from what they were telling everyone else? I took that from the PCW article

    That really threw me for a loop. Maybe they left the word "doesn't" out I don't see how they can tell the whole world they expect no shortages then slip to a magazine that they really do expect the same issues.

    Maybe (hopefully) they just mean maybe a week or 2 back order.... Which is still too long after the DINC.

    Verizon has had a bunch of phones sell out in the last year, because they didn't expect them to sell as well as they did. That's why I'm going to show up 1-hour early on Thursday morning. I'm not taking any chances.

    Yeah, I don't care what time I get to my store, because a friend of mine is an employee, and he told his manager that he'd like to reserve one for me as he knew I'd pay full price if I had to, and his manager was like "As long as he doesn't go somewhere else"

    Someone is always paying off somebody else.

    In the case of PCWorld I don't know who. Without going into a whole spiel, sometimes some magazines have underlying interests. Not just magazines, but other news outlets. It's unfortunate now that there aren't too many reliable/neutral sources out there anymore. I wouldn't trust that part of the article. I'll just flat out say it. Maybe PCWorld is in bed with VZW or Motorola or someone. The best source in this scenario I think are the store clerks and CSRs. They're the ones you will be dealing with come X day.

    I agree. I stopped reading muscle mustang & Fast fords along with 5.0 because they push there sponsors product. (as the sponsors expect them to) and have questionable at best tech.

    It seems like now. Laity there have been a lot of conflicting reports. Not that everything you read on the WWW is correct. But I read earlier that the 170 people that got there's early would not be able to activate them till the 15th. Now I just read on Engadget that vzw fixed there system so now those 170 people can activate there phones...

    ah who knows. We'll find out the 15th
