I've called every store in a 20 mile radius of Beverly Hills this morning and no luck. Most employees have unfortunately been clueless as we have come to learn.

Started this forum for us locals. If you know of a store that has it, please post it.

You got that right. They are still selling for $800-$900 on eBay!

A couple of us in the "8800's in Stores" thread have been posting updates re L.A.-area availability. I, too, have been calling all stores north of LAX, all through the SFV, and even into Ventura County. Nothing so far.

Interestingly, someone in that other thread who is in Bakersfield said they bought one already from a local corporate store. I'm thinking, if Bakersfield is getting them, we can't be too far off. Also, many local stores get shipments at 1pm, therefore it's worth checking back after that time to find out.

OC store on Bristol and Jamboree said they got 5 in and are selling 4 (one is for demo). It was posted on the other thread that someone called this store and had one put on hold for pickup in the AM. When I called, they were going to take my name down and after telling him I was paying full retail, he said it was first come, first serve on the 21st. They weren't selling them before than and no waiting lists.

I can confirm that the Woodland Hills (Topanga Canyon) corporate store has several in stock. I just picked one up from there. Someone else picked about two from the Highland Ave store in the Hollywood area.

There is no Cingular store on Highland in the Hollywood area. Not listed on the Cingular website or Yahoo Yellow Pages. You sure that was the location?

Sorry if I was unclear. It's located at 7100 Santa Monica Blvd (at Highland), or at least that's the address given to me by another member who purchased two from that location.

14557 Ventura Blvd
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403, USA

I'm the one with the 8800 from the Jamboree/Bristol store in Newport. I apparently have one of those 4 available for sale. Talk to the store manager, Grady, and reserve one for tomorrow. He's very nice and would probably agree to reserve one if you're driving down to get one [from his store].

Glad you were able to get yours today. I have to admit, I told the Cingular guy in Irvine that I broke my 8700 and really needed to pick up another BB today. He checked with his manager and said they'd let me buy it full price but he wouldn't hold it for me.
