I'm dealing with the same thing. I've already bought the accessories for it but just waiting for the phone to come available.

It'll let you buy it new but when you click to upgrade then it throws you back to select a phone and the Droid is gone, WTF?!

I love how many Bakersfield ACN reps get thier upgrades in my store as they don't want to wait for the mail. Does it take forever or something? They give up valuable points cause they are just as impatient as the rest of the world! :D

I believe the VZW website shows that it has 512 MB ROM and 288 MB DDR RAM... HTC's website confirms this too

I even tried to fool the computer by going to phones and plans and it shows up there, but then you go to upgrade and it disappears again :(

13. JasonLegend00

Yup, I tried all that. I went to the store and they already had one available to play with. And after messing with it, I just have to have it. VZW needs to get their act together cause it wants to come hometo me already!!

Yeah I'm an employee and have been playing with one for like 3 weeks and I want it NOW...

Ok, i'm getting tired of trying back and forth and no luck upgrading to The Droid. Maybe I should just settle for the subpar Chocolate Touch.
