This is a great question. There is no way to tell what the availability of a device would be on October 7th. You can, however order the phone thru vzw.com/phones without having to go to the store.

Well, seeing as how if you order online right now the date is 10/19.. I would be willing to bet there will be no phones available in store at Verizon.
