As you undoubtedly already know, the Droid X is set to officially launch next week, on Thursday July 15th. A lucky few who have already pre-ordered the phone, however, may be getting it a week early according to an internal Verizon memo………

Yesterday, Verizon told the 170 customers who received the Droid X early that they couldn’t fully activate their phones until launch. Looks like they changed their mind, though – a shot of their system shows that as of Friday afternoon, devices can now be fully activated without any issues. A pretty nice move, and one that is sure to keep those lucky customers happy.

Word on the street is that only 170 Droid X handsets have leaked out from the mothership so far, but in the off chance you’re in that elite group of early early adopters, it seems Verizon has cured a snag that was preventing you from activating the phone on its network.

As of Friday afternoon, it’s said that “system provisions were put in place” to allow the beasts to be used the way Motorola intended, so go forth and put that crusty old V3m out of its misery. Oh, and as for the rest of you: well, keep on waiting a few more days.

Even so, I’d still be excited if I was one of the lucky few receiving the device almost a week before the launch. After all, who wouldn’t want to get their hands on Motorola’s latest and greatest before anyone else?

    I needed a Droid 2.1 or higher to demo the KDC Android barcode scanner to a client on Friday. Got it yesterday afternoon and tried to activate it this morning. To activate, the program that starts at boot-up makes an automatic call but there’s an error…. The following automated message “You have dialed a number not available from your calling area, 034T (or 079T)”. Problem is the process is a 4-screen loop that you can’t get around.

    Verizon Tech support was surprisingly unfamiliar with the Droid X. At one point, they said to me “Why can’t you get around the program and dial *228 to manually program the phone?” “Excuse me, Ma’m, Verizon isn’t my phone company, I have no idea why – Shouldn’t you know?!?”

    An hour on the phone, and they want to ship me a replacement – but not overnight! It’s Tuesday, and with regular shipping I won’t have it until Friday. But the demo is Friday. Took me 20 minutes to get them to approve overnight.

    We have a blueTooth scanner that works with Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Blackberry, WMobile, Windows and Mac. You can see it in action at http://www.barcodeguy.com!
