    I'm pretty that poster was slighting the employees at BB, and their lack of knowledge in their own departments...not you J_benj...

    I stopped by the local at&t store in nyc and asked if they happened to have a pre 2 in store and of course they didn't. So I then asked about the veer and if they were going to get it this Sunday. Her response was what is a veer and who makes that phone. I told her it was being released this Sunday from HP/Palm and she pretty much asked me why do I want that phone and I should just get the Atrix or the iphone. So sad.

    I don't think they were thinking you were dumb, but that these guys 'in-the-know' often times don't know anything.
    I was glad you actually asked somebody at best buy.

    Also, in case you thought HardBeatz' post was implying that it was sad for someone to believe what you or the BB employee said:

    I'm pretty sure he was saying it's sad that innocentbystander felt that BB was the Veer's last hope.

    I went in the BB tonight to pre-order for my wife. The first girl was clueless and thought I meant HTC. But when she asked the other girl, she did know about the phone. She said, "Yeah, we are taking pre-orders for them." Then she said she couldn't find the proper pre-order form. So, she said she would just take my name and number. About that time, she said, "Oh, it says here that supplies are constrained and that we won't have them at launch. We won't get them until the 22nd."

    So, I gave her my name and number. I'm not too worried about it. I think when they do come out, BB will have plenty that I won't need to "Pre order" to get one.

    I'm not. I was going to. Get one on a 1 year contract at the AT&T store but it's actually cheaper to get the free one from BB and cancel after a year and pay the reduced ETF.

    Best Buy employees (my son being one) don't work on commission so they will have some info but really not much....
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!
