Quite a few others have been able to upgrade for a while but haven't pulled the trigger because they have been waiting for this phone (or something comparable) since late last year.
I still have a feeling VZW will be selling it for $250. If it turns out to be $300 I may wait for the DInc 2.

$270, that's with my $30 NE2. I think VZW will have it for $250 though.
That's only because of the added 32gb memory card. I need a new card since I'm rocking a filled to the brim 2gb card in my BlackBerry.
As for being available for my upgrade, I emailed VZW and they moved it up a month for me.

250 on a 2 year max.
What phone aside from the iphone32gb is over 200? Heck the atrix is 200 and look at its specs compared.
At $300 on a 2 year we need to tell vzw to shove it. I know someone will say "but what about the 32gb card?" Well I didn't hold a gun to their head and make then include a card that most people will never fill. If they included a 16GB card that would give us 24GB of space, more than probably 98% of people will use.
It'd be the same as if the phone came pre installed with a bunch of expensive apps and made us pay for them.

As for the price, $299 is the price I am going to pay if they are not selling at $250. A few months down the line BBY or Amazon may even have it for free or 99c (after Bionic comes out, maybe). But if we want to be get the latest, we should be prepared to pay more.

Doesn't matter to me. I'll pay the $700 and a year from now sell it for $300-400 as brand new, slightly used. It works out the same as paying $300 for an upgrade.... I cradle my phones like a baby so they're always in mint condition.

Best Buy Mobile is saying on facebook that the actual price is $249.99. They are saying the ads with $299.99 price tag were prepared way ahead and the price tag has changed since then.

If you say that, then its going to be 300 dollars total since in order to pre-order the thunderbolt, you have to deposit 50 dollars and get a 50 dollar gift-like card. once it release, you pay the remaining which is 250 along with that card. That I believe is what Best Buy is trying to say.

It's good to see that at least Best Buy Mobile is answering ppl's questions on facebook, unlike Verizon Wireless which is more intent on deletiing posts they do no like.
