I did the same thing with the Storm. There is a huge mega VZW store here in Los Angeles and they had 10 Storms the day before it hit the market. I was one of the lucky few thanks to BGR and his secret ninjas.
That's awesome!!! With storm, I was at the store at 0545 (it opened at 0700) and was first in line...the store got like 20 storms I am passing on tour most likely...but will just go play with one at the store
