170 Motorola DROID X handsets were shipped out early - they can now be activated
According to the information gathered from a screen shot from an internal Verizon document, there were apparently 170 Motorola DROID X handsets that were accidentally shipped out earlier than expected. We've already reported at how some lucky owners were pleasantly surprised to see their handsets arrive a lot earlier than expected, however, activating them properly was another thing. The internal document goes on further to say that those 170 units are now able to activate properly by simply performing either of the self service options – going online to their MyVerizon account or dialing *228 option 1 from their handset. We'd imagine that there were blocks in place for certain ESNs, but thankfully Verizon is allowing them to be activated now without any problems. Good thing for those owners as they'll be able to show off their prized handset way ahead of everyone else.

Sweet, more proactive service from Big Red. Apple would send collection letters to retrieve early devices, or remote lock them.+1 VZW

Or they would send the remote burst into flames command to them.

Or even worse, Apple would send Imperial Storm Troopers to retrieve these phones, wether they were found in a bar or shipped from Apple.
