    Yea, I'm confused too. So does it mean what Turbo said or that Verizon won't know that you "used" it at BBMobile so you'll still have the NE2 floating out there with Verizon?

    Thanks...

    Icecool & HappyGilmore; Yea, I guess it just depends who you know at BBMobile or how eager they are to get your business. While at the mall today with a BBMobile there, I just inquired to them about the pre-order and if I can use my NE2.
    First off, the guy had NO clue what the Incredible was (he asked me twice the name of it) but luckily the other salesperson knew about it and told him that they are taking pre-orders today. But he said they can't take the NE2 from Verizon. Grrrrr....

    So, looks like I'll just get it on the 29th from my local Verizon store that morning. I don't think this phone is going to sell out anywhere.

    I just went to my local Best Buy and preordered it...I was the first one on the list, I don't think many people know about the Incredible.

    Anyway, I cannot wait for the 29th to come so I can finally get rid of my dumbphone!

    I preordered mine this morning from a regular Best Buy store. The guy said it will be there on 4/29 and not to expect it any earlier.
    This. Se did the same thing this morning for two Incredibles.

    so I just preordered my Incredible at best buy earlier, and the lady who was helping me out said that even though it doesnt come out till the 29th, they are recieving their shipment on the 26th and to "expect a call to pick it up shortly after". I hope i get mine that day, but refuse to get my hopes up lol. anyone else have this experience?

    i guess if verizon hasn't employed a street date on the shipments to bby.

    i know when i worked there if we sold a video game that had a street date on it (they came in boxes sealed with bright orange stickers saying not to sell the game before a certian date) we'd get in trouble and the store would have to pay a fine

    There's a hard street date of 4/29, so BBY will not let them go until that morning.

    Strangely, the guy who processed my pre-order at BB last week, said I can get the phone on the 25th , but they only get a handful of them... I'm planning to stop by BB today or tomorrow, just to make sure that it's not a dream I had :rolleyes:

    yea, please let us know. I also pre-ordered from BB, and it would be awesome if they sold them a few days early. But like someone said if they have a street date than its gonna be hard for BB to sell them early because when you ring it up, its gonna tell you that it cant be sold until the 29th.....

    Like Tom Petty told me " the waiting is the hardest part...."

    Was wondering if there is anyone out there, in the know about Best Buy's inventory or stock.....was wondering if they even have it in stock at the stores yet? Perhaps if they do, you may be able to get your hands on it early.....

    just a thought...

    Like I said in a different thread, when i did the pre-order at BB, the guy there told me to come on the 25th, they should have a handful of Incredibles by then... Planning to go there today after work and ask him again if that is actually the case.

    cool, yea please let us know what you find out. I plan to go to BB on the 27th to pick up a video game, and was going to ask then. If they let them go earlier, I'll head over there ASAP

    i just called my local best buy here in TN, and the guy on the phone said April 28th. i asked him to double check in their system and he looked it up..."yep april 28th". i'm wondering though if that is the day they will be getting them in at my particular store, but not selling till the 29th? i guess ill go check on my lunch break on wednesday!

    my BB here in Cola, SC that I preordered from said they would get them in most likely on the 28th but would call and set up a time on Thursday to pick up and help set up the phone. I really don't need the help as I'm pretty knowledgeable when it comes to tech stuff but I just want the phone at this point.

    Anyone swing by their Best Buy today and luck out on getting one early?

    EDIT: So I just checked the Best Buy online ad and they had the Incredible in their Mobile Buyers Guide but list the phone as available in May....interesting.

    I think the Mobile Buyers Guide shows May because its soo close to May. I remember seeing screen shots where the Incredible would be in stores today. We can only be so lucky as to have someone call and say you can come pick it up now.

    Yeah that's what I was hoping for today but never got a call.

    I imagine it will be Thursday before I can pick it up but I guess I've waited long enough.

    hmmm, thats an interesting idea. I may do that so i dont have to extend my contract and save my upgrade... or remember that trick if another phone comes out in the next 2 years I wont be all bummed out that my upgrade isnt up yet lol

    yea I went into BestBuy today and the uninterested mobile sales associate had no idea when they were getting the Incredible in. I also asked about accessories, and she said "accessories for new phones don't come out for like 3 months after the phone is released". Hopefully I didn't make a mistake preordering at this location lol

    Does anyone know if when you buy a phone from Best Buy if you can get the Asurion insurance on the phone through Verizon rather than using Best Buy's insurance plan?

    you should be able to as long as you get the insurance within 15 days of buying the phone. it is still a verizon phone whether or not you bought it at the verizon store

    Thanks for the response. I actually called VZW customer service and confirmed this. (although they made no mention of a fifteen day period)
    Thanks again.
