I agree 100%. Take your time releasing that is why there is Quality Control for this reason and it worked however greed got in the way is how I see it. VZW wanted here and everyday BB took longer VZW was making out better for payin for the phone. Contract awards fees, ever hear of them...

Yeah, as suspected BG reports that Verizon couldn't release it with OS .82(?) because of a security issue so it flashed as many units as they could to .65, covered up the sticky label with .65 (peel back your sticker and see if .82 is under it) and sent 'em on their way. It's not confirmed mind you, but may be why they ran out of Storms early today and are delaying shipping now. Linky:

Fort Lauderdale Verizon store, where I got mine IN store said that if you didn't have a number, you would be able to order one in store today, and have it tomorrow, as long as you ordered it by 4:00 PM, and there was about 50 people waiting in the order line. I am glad that I got up and called in "sick" for some of the day.

The ones they are shipping out on Dec 5th are all the returned units I am one day into mine and hope they release an update that fixes the issues (or most of them).

The owner of that store is likely not telling you the truth on this. Indirect agents are not getting this until all corporate locations have adequate inventory, so they will say whatever they can to justify not having it in stock. The Storm was not recalled.

I was told something similar to this by a rep here. Verizon store in Katy, Texas.

True? Who knows.

Angry Confirmed with Verizon

Can't attach link but Gizmodo dot com has the first news release I have seen in reference delivery dates.

I read this and called to verify with Verizon. They would not admit the software problem but would not promise a shipping date earlier than the 15th of December for my order this morning. They also claimed that my order could not be canceled.....

It is hard to believe that with all the hype the last few months that they were not logistically prepared for this release. Someone in management needs to be fired over this, whether itís a software or logistics problem!

I'll add to this -

I called a Verizon dealer and ordered our two storms Friday night at 8 pm. Today I called for a order number so I could track it on the verizon site and he told me he had a tracking number!

So mine was ordered at 8 pm and shipped today.

*edit*
I'm sure the Dec. 5th date is just something they are saying so nobody can hold them to a certain date.

I called in reference to my order today and was told my order would ship no later than the 25th. I ordered it yesterday at around 9:30am. When I check my order online, it still says "We have received your order. Please check back tomorrow."

I called at about 11 am this monring so I could get my order number. I tried it today at 2 ish and it was telling me the number I was putting in was incorrect. So I called back in to verify everything and they told me the phone was over-nighted and gave me a fedex tracking number.

So you may have to actually call to get the correct status.
