    That's interesting, because I had a Best Buy rep tell me once that they wouldn't price match off-contract prices. Weird.
    MULTIPLE times I have done that. Maybe try another store or talk to the store manager. NOTE: This applies to the full size stores, not the mobile only stores. We have 3 Full Size stores here in Tulsa, and one mobile store in the mall.

    He told me the Odyssey was just a rebranded ATIV S and that it would be coming out in November of all things... Since Balmer said it would be December, I doubt what the rep said was correct.

    If preorder starts at 1AM shouldn't there have been some type of announcement by now?

    In theory, but who knows with the way Verizon has been communicating (or not in the case) about Windows Phone. Maybe they open the preorders tonight and announce them tomorrow. I'm eagerly waiting, but won't be heartbroken if I am unable to preorder tonight.

    2 more hours until VZW phone lines open and I can call them up (7am MNT). This hesitation and yanking our chains over releasing this phone is the absolute worse.

    Well 8 AM EST.. Still nothing on pre-order.. I stopped in at Best Buy last night to see if I could pre-order it.. They were all busy so no one helped me but I did get to play with the 8X.. I would get it if I didn't have such a passionate disliking of HTC.. Plus I don't feel like spending the 200 on that phone.. I will stick with the lumia 822.. Only real difference is the screen. I guess beats audio too but that isn't a horribly big problem for me.. As long as I can listen to music I am fine.

    Ok dudes, I just got an official email from our corporate rep. (We have a large corp account) It says preorders are pushed back one day and will be the 9th.

    8x will be blue, black and red and 822 has black white and grey.

    So is the release pushed back as well? Will there be some type of announcement today about preordering?

    Vzw isn't yanking anyone's chain. They've yet to mention a release date. Everyone on the forum is getting worked up over speculation

    I don't know because I've never seen an official release date. The email I got from our corporate rep today specifically says the pre-order date was 11/8 and is now 11/9 at 1AM EST. It also contains the SKU's for the 3 8X models and the 3 822 models. That email does not give a launch date.

    Do you know will there be some type of announcement today about being able to preorder or will it just show up?

    I don't know. I think they usually do some press releases before you can pre-order stuff, but who knows, the WP8 launch has been a strange one. I'm more worried about figuring out what color to get.. Probably blue. :)

    I will probably end up with blue, I would prefer yellow but of course not, Verizon won't get it. I'd really like the 920 but I'll end up with the 8X.

    I'm tempted to see if the Microsoft Store will carry the Verizon 8X in yellow. I'm not counting on it by any means, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    The 8X will be a placeholder until I can hear more about the VZW ATIV device... I enjoy the form factor of my GS3 and I'm worried about the drop down to the 8X 4.3" screen, but who knows.

    At least Angry Birds Star Wars is out today to keep my mind off the wait....

    The Verizon network is $100 better in many places in the U.S.
    And AT&T's is $100 faster in most areas that Verizon doesn't have LTE =)

    An infinite amount of $$$ faster when I'm on the phone and only have a 3G connection ;)

    Mine is just an email from our corporate rep and even if I did take screen cap of that, it doesn't prove anything, I could easily make it up.

    Either way, I'm not all in until I see it in our VEC. Verizon has already pushed it back one day so even if they are telling me tomorrow is the day, who knows, something could come up again. If I can break away from Halo 4 at midnight tonight, I'll check it out and post a shot of that, but if it is in the VEC, it'll probably be on the consumer side to.

    Multiple Verizon devices do voice and data on 3G at the same time.. It started with the Blunderbolt and I'm not sure what other devices do it, but my GS3 does.

    No idea if WP8 devices will though.

    My Trophy on Verizon does. I'd imagine the WP8 phones would too.
