    Am I the only one to find this to be stupid?

    Tour is available in Stores on July 12th (sunday) however, if you pre ordered it online you won't have it until Tuesday. Am I the only one who finds that to be stupid? Whats the point of a pre order if you have to wait longer when you can go in store and get it?

    Not really. Since they can't ship until it's released that means Monday would be the first shipping day possible and via overnight you would receive it on Tuesday. So makes perfect sense to me. I under the frustration but I do understand the logic.

    True, but I would have to agree with Brett.

    Pre-ordering should be where you can get it before everyone else...it is kinda dumb.

    Although I just thought that the benefit to the pre-order would be that you don't have to wait in line, or take the chance of them selling out like what happened with the Storm back in November.

    I have to agree with Josh to a certain extent. If VZW was smart then they would handle per orders like Amazon. Where you get it the day of release or the next day if the release day falls on a holiday or Sunday.

    I agree with that Neo but I think the main benefit of pre-ordering is not waiting in line and knowing that you will get even if stores run out.

    However, the release date is a Sunday so people had to realize they weren't going to get on that day.

    Yeah, I guess that would be the main benefit

    Ya but CS is saying "if they have enough in stock then you will get it tuesday". Well like you guys say, pre ordering is assuring you get it and not have to wait in line at the store to get the phone even if they sell out. They better damn well have enough for the pre orders. That should be their #1 concern!

    I think what they should do is if they allow pre-ordering, then people that did pre-order should have their phones in hand Friday the 10th. That would be fair. It's not like the phone is in production still, it's ready to ship/sell.
