Motorola Droid 3 Now Available from Verizon?


Droid 3 is now available from Verizon wireless. Well, sorta. Jumping onto Verizon’s “Droid Does” page will give you this flashy flash page showing off all of the features and specs of Motorola’s latest qwerty offering. Only problem, clicking on the “Buy Now” button will take you to a page displaying “The selection you made is unavailable at this time.” So what gives?

Well, I’ve been hearing reports from a few lucky people who got in touch with Verizon telesales by dialing 611 on their handsets and were actually able to purchase the device. If the service rep is having a hard time locating the device in their system give them a hand with the part number “Droid 3 MOTXT862.” Might speed things up a bit.

Rumor has it the device wasn’t going to be released until July 14th but it looks like you might be able to snag it now? This phone is looking absolutely beastly. Good luck and let us know if you were able to purchase!

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. What is everyone’s thoughts about the Droid Bionic? I can upgrade (from Droid Incredible) and I fear the Samsung Function will be too watered down and might not get CM7 (the Fascinate never got it) so even though it had a locked bootloader it looks like a nice phone. There’s a rumor about a Nexus for all carriers which would be ideal but I don’t know if that’ll happen. Also, I don’t know how long it’ll take HTC to get a dual-core phone on Verizon. Please comment and give me suggestions! :)

    1. galaxy s II is rumored to be coming…. who knows when. droid x2 is dual core now.

      1. Galaxy SII is the Function on Verizon and the Droid X2 has no FFC which is kind of important to me. Also, does anybody know if Droid Bionic will have pentile screen? :/

  2. first. Yes this phone looks awesome. Even with the bootloader. Who cares about that now after what we’ve done with the DX.

  3. The phone looks sharp! I’m stuck on T-Mobile, though.

    1. You got the HTC DoubleShot that is coming up and with an unlocked bootloader as well!


  5. Anyone ever get into level 2 (top right corner of the droiddoes.com page)? Its password protected. Same goes for stage2.droiddoes.com

  6. Just ordered the phone off VZW website. Free overnight shipping, so I should have it tomorrow.

  7. When I ordered the phone, the multimedia station had a picture of the car mount displayed. The description was for the multimedia station, however. No car mount was listed in the list of accessories for the phone.

  8. Here is the description of the Droid 3 multimedia station showing the car mount image. As you can see from the order confirmation I posted before, they listed it at $49.99 but charged me $37.49.

  9. First time I saw a Taiwanese company actually kicking some American company’s behind. The new technology age is shifting to Koreans and Taiwanese.

    1. What? Moto is an American company. They outsource to China to build their phones. Btw, this phone sucks.

      Encrypted bootloader FTL.

  10. I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

  11. I just bought one from Verizon website… only $149 with my “customer loyalty” discount??? Whatever that is…but I’m not complaining! Anyone notice how GOOD their phone support is (I got all my questions answered before I bought) and how BAD their stores are?

  12. Just ordered Droid3 in the store. By the time I got home got a confirmation that it has already shipped and I will get it on July 12th. Pretty good since they said it would be available on the 14th.
