We have been told by some Verizon Wireless sources that most stores are selling out of the Motorola DROID X, yet some are having activation issues. According to our sources, phones are being activated without data (voice only) as the system is currently backlogged. The system isn’t down, but some customers are being sent home with only voice working on their handsets. The current backlog we’re told is around 2 hours or more. Lastly, our sources said that customers seem “extremely happy excited” about the new Android powerhouse, regardless of the current data activation problems.
