    Anyone think this will happen? Or will I have to be one of the sorry fools who camps out at 7am?

    I have not followed previous phones with preorders like some on the forums. But with how VZW is flying by the seat of their pants on this one, I would assume no. If something comes up by Monday-possibly. After Monday, and the 10th is truly the date, I would sincerely doubt it. Of course for the past month we have been expecting news and all sorts of stuff. So simple answer. Probably not. And you can probably go walk in at open without an issue. Go in at 6, after work or the next day. Then you may have issues. Like I said though - No experience with this except for walking in on my the 6th to pick up the original Droid. Guy said they sold tons that day when I went in at like 4

    There will be no need to camp out. There will be plenty of phones in stock.

    I dont think that VZW will have a preorder, just by the pure fact that best buy has had one for...24 hours short of 1 month. Yea.....wheres my phone?

    I think you guys are under estimating the demand for this phone! Just my opinion and I'm wondering if they are gonna keep the phones to LTE area's only at Launch?

    When I go into the store they say they have alot of people asking for the phone. But who really knows

    I dont think there will be any need to camp out when its released. Most the general public has no idea about this phone.

    I agree. I tell people I'm waiting for the Thunderbolt and they say "what the hell is that?"

    They will probably do preorders online if the announcement is Monday.

    The "insiders" have been saying a lot of things. Problem is they aren't producing anything. "Coming soon" is a very relative phrase and is in the eye of the beholder. Yes, my bad attitude is showing.

    if they do an online pre-order, does that mean you will have the phone delivered to your house on release day?

    This will be the first time I bought a phone in an actual store. I'm looking forward to getting there early and walking out with my new TB!

    I'm going to ask the rep if I can unbox and activate it myself.

    Usually they ship out for delivery on same day as store release, sometimes a day early.

    I really wish they would preorder, I don't get paid until the day after, and I don't want to miss out. If they don't, I'll just have to have them charge it to my bill and pay for it afterwards.

    I was told by a VW phone rep (who is also waiting for TB) that the iphone was available for sale online at 3 am. of the day it was released. Getting up early won't matter if they are plenty of units in stock but if not....?

    No way I'm getting up that early for a phone. For work sometimes, I have to..

    I'm sure they'll be plenty in stock.

    Yes, I'm sure they'll be well-stocked. At least Verizon will be. But I am sure resellers won't get sold out on day 1 either.
