I held off on the Best Buy pre order because I can't get anyone on the phone at my local store and it's a 15 minute walk so I'm going to Verizon on Thursday at opening. (Maybe a few minutes before)

I'm going to Costco. I got too many conflicting & weird answers at Best Buy and, the cell phone rep at Costco was very nice and helpful.

Costco for me. No activation fee , plus the best return policy in the business. 3 months no questions asked. Gives you an opportunity for price to drop or maybe wi-fi only version.

Pre order at best buy but I will go to Verizon and wait outside in line. If they have one for me ill just get it there since I need to get my accessories there anyway. If the lines long or they don't have it ill just go down the road and get my pre order.

I actually am not sure if it applies to something like the XOOM, since a contract of some sort is involved. I was told you have only 14 days for a full refund and 90 days for an exchange of some sort.

I have mine fully pre-paid for at BB, but I might just get it at VZW and then return the gift cards, once BB refunds the $$$ to my credit card I'll just pay it off.

When you said you have it fully pre-paid for at BB, do you just mean the $50 that you paid when putting in your pre-order?

On another note, I called my local VZW to have them put one on hold for me. I plan on stopping by VZW when they open to get it there. If they do not have one waiting for me for some reason, then I will just get my pre-order at BB.

I purchased gift cards for the full amount including taxes.

The cashier can put any amount on any card. If you hand the cashier 5 cards and say split it across, they will. Just doesnt make sense (to me) to buy gift cards in the amount the pre-order will cost you, especially when you may return said gift cards.

I checked them on this. The contract money you don't get back obviously, but the device is still 100% returnable. Especially sonce these are month to month contracts.

Pre-ordered at Best Buy, but hope to pick one up at Costco for at least some sort of discount. Can always spend the $50 gift card on something else at Best Buy.
