Bought it at my local verizon store, I was first in line.. got there at 6:15 with my girlfriend... website said they opened at 8 lol but guess they decided for 9.. but that was fine.. me my dad and girlfriend all got one. Mine ended up being faulty and i had restored it at least 3 or 4 times. I took it back later because I got stuck in a reboot loop, they restored it again and then i had to restore again later that night. the next morning i had to restore again and then got stuck in reboot loop again.... so took it back that morning and got it replaced and this one has been great ever since. Dad loves his and my girlfriend loves hers =) these are great phones when they work lol

Well I was at my local store when they opened at was super excited. Then the rep told me that I wasn't eligible for an upgrade. I told her that I had called *611 and I was eligible and they put the note on my account. She refused to honor that. So I walked outside, called *611 and my X will be here tomorrow. I was ready for it this morning. :( Oh well, at least I don't have to pay the $100 Mail-in rebate this way. Tomorrow I'll take my X to that store to get a case and flaunt it in front of her. LOL

my girlfriend and i were in line at 8am, numbers 4 and 5 in line. the store opened at 9, and there were ~10 people in line by then. we got to a counter right away, and walked out with the phones 20 minutes later. they said they had 60 phones in the store, and i heard they sold out in 2 hours. we had to go back that afternoon because both of us forgot to do backup assistant before we went in that morning, causing old contact lists to be uploaded. when that was all squared away, we were out of there. i realized later that the list in my phone STILL wasnt right, but by then i had reactivated my old phone, done backup assistant, reactivated the X, then uploaded contacts again. right as rain (save for the hundreds of facebook conacts that now litter my phonebook, people i dont even have phone numbers for, much less would actually call them if i did...oh well, wave of the future, right?)

girlfriend has gone back to VZW once already for a sh!& battery plus other goings on, they hard restored it once...waiting to see if its working better, but she'll probly go back again and try to get a whole new X. it's still dropping calls like a mother, but the battery is better.

I ordered mine on the Verizon Wireless website....has been shipped and should arrive tomorrow or Wednesday...............I got an email from Verizon the day it came out and I went online immediately and ordered it. I see that it is backordered now until july 27.........I can't wait. I already have the original DROID, but this one looks so cool.

I pre-ordered mine at Best Buy the first day that we were allowed to pre-order. I did the same for the original Motorola Droid. I highly recommend Best Buy because they only want you to get a 50 dollar gift card. They will refund you the 50 dollars if you can't get your Droid or decide against it (I saw a kid get turned down because he was not eligible for an upgrade and my heart goes out for him). I came in at 2 PM on launch day after work and didn't have to line up early because they had it waiting for me. There's no rebate to deal with either because they will take care of the rebate with Verizon. It was 199 plus tax - the 50 dollar gift card you bought for the pre-order. Made me felt like I only had to pay roughly 160 dollars because of the gift card I bought a month before when I pre-order. Then I went to Verizon and got a case (while witnessing all these people getting turned away because they were sold out). I also pre-ordered the screen protector as soon as I pre-ordered my Droid X and had it mailed to me a few days before the launch day (I think I paid 4 dollars for 3 screen protectors off of ebay). Verizon was selling it for 15 dollars. Quality seems good, but maybe the Verizon ones are a little better. I totally recommend the leather case with kickstand available at Verizon stores (I did a review of it on this forum).

I will be ordering mine online from the Verizon website on 8/11. The VZW store here has been a pain to deal with. Less than 30 days for NE2 and wouldn't let me upgrade... I guess cause it's an extra $100 off for me. Who knows.

My partner and I ordered the incredible more than a month earlier and when we realized that the incredible was not coming until after the launch of the droid X, we canceled the incredible and went online and ordered the droid X. After some research on-line about the droid X and seeing it in action we were so very pleased with the decision and love the screen size and the and the HDMI feature and I am so very glad about our decision and that we went with the droid X. No regrets and am loving it and love the video camera feature what a awesome phone this is so very glad with our decision. When e received it and saw it in person and working we would not have it any other way when they came in the mail it was like Christmas day 6 months early this is one awesome phone I recommend it to anyone thinking about upgrading and not knowing weather too or not do it .

71 years old and I just ordered my first smartphone and that was through VZW's online site. I had called their teleservice but the CSR seemed to need more training(she didn't know the X could be ordered on a one year contract for one thing) plus online offers free overnight shipping. Won't ship until August third at the earliest.

Placed a second separate order for the bundle of accessories(mobile and home) plus the silicon case also getting free overnight shipping.

Got mine from the Mobile Solutions kiosk in Target, only place in town that had one yesterday. I got the last one they had too. I think Mobile Solutions is somehow affiliated with Wirefly, at least the online part is.

Left AT&T one month early with the now unfounded fears of verizon going to tiered data plans. Oh well, the iPhone 3G I had was getting pretty tired.

Where did you purchase the Droid X from?

I stood in line for 2 1/2 hours on launch day (July 15) and I'm glad I did. I stood in line for the original MotoDroid and will be doing it again when the next best Droid thing comes out. It's a ritual. ;)

I ordered mine one August 2nd online through Walmart/Let's Talk. $150 works for me. My wife and son each got a Cosmos at the same time and Let's Talk gave them each $50 to buy the phones. Yeah, I know, the Cosmos isn't something to write home about but my son is 11 and my wife doesn't plan to do anything but talk and text and we didn't want to spend the extra $$ every month for a data plan she wouldn't use. The phones will supposedly ship on the 15th of August. Meanwhile I'm trying to learn as much about my new phone as I can before it gets here. I don't have any experience with a smart phone so this one will have a bit of a learning curve. That's ok. I'm up to it...I hope.

Bruce

All of the above was completely changed thanks to Walmart's, "Let's Talk" and their inability to get the Droid X. They told me when I ordered the phones that the Droid X would ship by the 15th of August. On the 16th I called them and they told me the new estimate was September 21st. What?! They were off by 5 Weeks?! And they were still going to make us wait for the two phones for my wife and son that were in stock. Forget it. I don't care how much money I was going to save.

I bought the two LG Cosmos's from the local Costco for $0, ($8 sales tax) and they rebate the $60 in activation fees for the two phones. I still lose $40 over the Walmart phones and I could've just canceled the Droid X from my Walmart order and had them send the LG Cosmos's right away. But I was so pi$$ed off that they were delaying they Droid X by over a month that I didn't want to give them any of my money.

Nobody locally had/has the Droid X but Costco online does and could've had it to me in a couple of days. But they wanted the full $200 for it and Verizon online had a deal for $150 and they wave the activation fee. Money is very tight right now and I guess I don't mind waiting until 9-8 to get the phone if I save a bunch of money. It's still two weeks earlier than it would've been through Walmart. I'm also getting it for the same price as Walmart had it for plus I'm saving the $25 activation fee. The entire cost to get all three phones was only $15 more than Walmart and we get them many weeks sooner. I'll take that.

What's the deal with Let's Talk, (Walmart)? How is it that pretty much every other retailer at the time either had it in stock, (Costco's Wireless Advocates) or was getting it in stock within a week or two but Walmart is out of stock for at least two months? You would think that a place with Walmart's selling power and deals that can't be beat, (Without a Verizon upgrade or corporate deal) would be a priority for Motorola and they would make sure they get their phones. But instead they appear to be at the end of the Droid X line and when ANY other retailer comes back for more phones they get to cut in front of Walmart. In the time it takes for Walmart to get one Droid X shipment the local Costco will get at least 3 or 4 shipments of phones in and the online Costco will have them in stock the entire time. Even Target gets them in stock way faster then Walmart. Can you tell I'm a little pi$$ed off at Walmart?:mad:

So now I have all of my accessories for the Droid X and no Droid X.:( At least my wife and son have their phones...And Walmart/Let's Talk doesn't have my money.:cool:

Anyway, after the promise from Verizon, (Online) of a ship date of 9/7 and an overnight delivery on 9/8 I just checked my email and it apparently came in early. It shipped today, arrives tomorrow.

My woman was having texting problems on her old slider phone. Called VZW, and he guy offered to give is an early upgrade, if we got 2 Droid X's. Needless to say, me and the woman have one now. Came in the mail in August. Loving it.

Purchased from the Verizon Store in town. They were very helpful and they matched the online prices that I found on the internet! That was really cool and I did not know that they could do that so I am pretty happy. Since I have another line in the house, they also honored the Buy One Get Another plan and I got a free LG phone (I did not need another smartphone and it is nice, small, and cool looking).

Wirefly!

I waited for a few months for Wirefly to come out with a deal for a free Droid X on an upgrade through Verizon and I finally got it! I was having issues purchasing online (no fault of the Wirefly website) so I had to call in. Besides the the scripted solicitation, constant and annoying use of the phonetic alphabet , and being on the phone for 20+ minutes, I am happier than ever. You can't beat a free $500 phone or even a subsidized one through Verizon directly.

It took 3 trips to Costco to get my X. My parents were going to bring my X home as.a surprise on the night of March 23, then we went together on March 24, but they were sold out of X's, but on March 25, 2011 1130AM, the sales rep at Costco put X in my hands and she made her first DROID Cry while my Mum filled out her adoption paperwork. It brought tears to my eyes. Now she's over a year old, and still doing Droidtastic.
