    I contacted Verizon at midnight to see about getting one of these phones for my boss and they claimed that they didn’t know which retail stores would have them, but you could buy them on-line.

    Even the link you provided doesn’t allow you to buy one! What do I have to do to get an LG Dare today?

    Jason, I just checked again and the Dare is still listed as available. Granted, I live in a flagship market (Dallas-Fort Worth) so that may play a factor in availability. Care to tell us your general area so we can verify for ourselves that it isn’t available where you are?
