That's my plan. I'm assuming my store will have them in on the 20th. I remember going though all this hoopla for the Bionic, expecting a line and there was one other person there getting one. I assume it's going to be about the same for these phones as well.
Also, I saw a leak a while back that said they're going to be in the stores on the 13th and on sale (and shipping) by the 20th so, in theory, they could go on sale sooner. I'm kinda hoping that might happen (I'm not expecting it, but I've been checking VZW's site every day).
Is anyone else still figuring out which one they want? I really don't like the red case on the Ultra but I'm not interested in paying an extra $100 just to have a black back and I don't need the extra memory. OTOH, I have a $100 VZW gift card, so I'd still only pay $199. There's a little part of me that's hoping the red one is sold out when I get there so I don't have to get it. Of course, it would be nice to have that much phone for just $99 (after the gift card). I'll just wait and see I guess.
I was hoping to pay full price for this phone on the 20th and hoping to VZW have enough stock and allow us to buy off-contract. Anybody else in the same boat?
There will ALWAYS be another phone just a few more days away and another one that comes out in two weeks and another one that comes out in a month... At some point you just have to bite the bullet and buy one that's on the shelves today (or the one you've been waiting for for a month). Look at it this way, the longer you hold out now, the longer you'll have to wait at the other end to buy a new one. IOW, if instead of getting the MAXX in a week, you hold out for a month, then when the Note 6 or iPhone 7s or Moto Supra w Gorilla Glass X3 comes out 6 weeks before you're up for renewal you'll be pulling your hair out waiting to run in and buy it (then when you are ready they'll be another one on the horizon).Same, although the news of the note 3 and its big battery makes me want to wait a bit before I buy the Maxx. Also I wish there would be official reviews out already.

What do you have to buy to make wireless charging work? I assume you have to buy some sort of pad to set the phone on, I assume that's $40 or $50. Do you have to have something connected to the phone or are the coils already in the phone? If you have to have a special case on the phone, that's going to make a big phone even bigger.
