    All you fellow Verizon customers that ordered an HTC 8x, what are you doing today?

    I've got 5 or 6 stores close by I plan to call this morning and see if they have inventory. I'll post back if I find one. :)

    I'm not canceling until I have one in hand, but yeah I plan on heading to a store. Hopefully with them springing this 11/15 date on us if they do have them they might not sell out because people didn't know they released today.

    Just called 5 stores. 2 told me they could order. The other 3 (Corporate Stores) said to call back after 3pm FedEx may have them today. The one store said if they get them in she would hold one and call me back.

    After reading all these posts the last few days.... I wont hold my breath. :/

    Since I'm working (I'm a teacher), I can't go get it. I temporarily put my father on my account to go pick one up for me at 9:30! I haven't heard back yet, but the store I called ALSO said they have them in stock last night, so we'll see!

    If anyone in NJ knows of a store that has them IN STOCK, share the love!

    I didn't vote because I'm actually looking at making things more complicated for myself. I just called my local store and they said they had it, I made sure it wasn't the 822 they were talking about, he said they had both. I really want the red one though, so I'm htinking of picking up a black one today and preordering a red, which should arrive in 14 days. I'll then return the black. This way I get to have an 8X now, but still get the color I actually want.

    Called the local store this morning (Enfield Ct) at 10:15. I was told they didn't have any 8X's yet, but would be getting them later today. Called again at 12:30 - This time they have the 8X, but only in black. I asked about the 822's..... only black as well.
    I was told to call back later, they are expecting another shipment today of the colored phones. Really? Are they actively trying to mess this whole release up intentionally?

    Got a black 8X at the Verizon store at Bridgeport Village in Lake Oswego, OR (Portland.) They got 4 in stock, and they arrived about an hour before I got there.

    They did have a California Blue display model that they were setting up as I was looking at the 822s.

    I had a preorder for a California Blue 8x, but I'm glad I went black. The California Blue is just too purple for me.

    I knew it was bad, but the speed and responsiveness of the 8X makes me realize how absolutely horrible the Trophy was.

    The in-store display was nice and the manager was directing people to the "Windows 8" phones when they walked in. All the employees had WP8-related shirts on too.

    I say it needs an option for "I ordered red so it doesn't really matter"
