    I've actually tried calling three local stores today and keep getting sent to voicemail. No sales reps will answer. It either means (1) they are swamped with calls, (2) they're too busy selling the 710, or (3) they're not releasing it yet and they don't want to deal with the upset people who've been waiting.

    Either way, I'll let you know if I find out anything for the Columbus, Ohio market.

    EDIT: After hitting "0" for 17 times, I finally got an operator to pick up. She told me that the v710 was available at my local store today and I could pick one up anytime. (Stock permitting, of course)

    I also checked the vzw.com site and see nothing. However, I was in the local store yesterday. The rep showed me "her demo phone" that she'd be using today and she said they'd be selling them today. My store doesn't open until 9:30...maybe that's why no one answers your calls? Anyway, I'm on my over to the store soon!!!

    Their hours are 9a - 8p. And as I just edited into my above note, I finally got through. The 710 is available for pick up.

    Can anyone check the firmware version of the phones that are on display at VZW stores? I am interested to know if it's newer than the RS phones, like we speculated. I've got another thread about it going if you don't want to litter this one. ;)

    Just picked up my phone this morning. :) The S/W ver. is 8700_01_30.8F. Don't recall the RS phone version. Is this the same?
