More useless speculation, I know, but it almost makes more sense to wait for the Samsung to launch w/2 phones at once rather than 1. More sense than the iphone nonsense running around. What's curious is why Costco wouldn't carry it. Manager wouldn't tell me.

Yea that's because the Bolt is a BBY Retail Exclusive. No other 3rd party retailer will have it

EDIT: Ignore this someone else was posting at the same time I was

Yeah, I know. But he said period. Not at any point. Is Best Buy's exclusive for the life of the phone? 'cause the 90 day return window as Costco vs the 30 at BB is enough to tip the balance towards another phone. Damn it.

you don't have to believe me... go to Costco and they will confirm what I posted. Same with BB. They are following Verizons orders. (At least here in. Tucson they are.) Just bought a X at bb and that is what they told me. I returned a og droid before the X came out and it is now 30 Days.

I think you're confusing returning and canceling the service. You only have 14 days for your buyer's remorse/network testing period without incurring an ETF. You have 30 days to return the equipment to Best Buy, because it falls under their regular return policy.

Yeah, 14 days to get my upgrade restored. After 14 days, no more upgrade. So I can return after 14 days but before 30 days are up and exchange only?
Thanks!

Exactly. You would be locked into a contract, obviously, but Best Buy would still swap out the handset for a different one if you wanted within the 30 days.
