    So what are you guys thinking or what are ya doing? My thoughts are these AT&T pre-order gets you the phone two days earlier, but best buy gives you that awesome insurance which I might consider. So where you guys getting this beauty?

    plus best buy just gives you the $450 retail price as in store credit to be used on a new phone of your choice, insurance sends you a refurb.

    I guess Best Buy sounds like the way to go. Does anyone know if best buy will be receiving the lumia as early as the 6th like the AT&T stores?

    What insurance is that?

    Also I'll be in NYC this weekend, does anyone know if I can get one at an AT&T store there? Maybe Friday night at the launch party? http://www.windowscentral.com/nokia-...rk-city-friday

    The stores are closed here Sunday.

    Thanks

    That is not at all the experience my wife had with BestBuy/GeekSquad's "Black Tie" insurance. When her phone broke, we had to mail it in, pay a "diagnostic fee" (although it was later refunded to us), and wait 30 days for the repair. Best Buy would NOT supply a "loaner" phone in the meantime. As it turned out, the phone could not be repaired and Best Buy elected to replace the phone with a "similar-quality" model, as opposed to sending us a gift card so that she could purchase the new phone she wanted. It was genuinely not a good experience, especially since the in-store salesman pitched the plan to us as being the awesome thing you describe.

    FYI, here's the full terms and conditions right from Best Buy/Geek Squad:
