Looks like the Blackberry Storm is in HIGH demand…orders online won’t ship until December 15! The salesperson said that I’d receive the Storm in Hawaii on Saturday or Monday…but it is Tuesday night and I still don’t have it! I’m worried that it won’t get to Hawaii before we leave! I talked with the Verizon store today and was told that ANY order made after 9am (the store doesn’t normally open until 10am!) on the first day wouldn’t be ready until after December 16…but somehow my salesperson had them get me in line in front of those people (even though we ordered it around 11:30am) since it was shipped via FedEx priority overnight shipping today and I should have it tomorrow!
