I agree, my local Verizon store was great. I went in to purchase a Storm the day of release but they were out, so they gave me the $50 rebate off up front and over-nighted me the phone. I had a great experience with them. They did offer the warranty, but I said no and they didn't question me further.
@341EastOf - Did you read the OP? He said he walked out.
