Well, in the meantime, I have not been idle. All the accessories that I purchased with the phone and will arrive with it, will be going back to the Verizon store. It seems that you can buy them all on for a fraction of the cost.

UPDATE: The items from Amazon are starting to come in now. All are Motorola original equipment (OEM). Top Quality.

TO VERIZON: Hello... Hello... Can you hear me know???? Oh, wait... I don't have my new phone YET!!!!
