I can't find grey mentioned anywhere but Verizon themselves. The Best Buy website has the white listed as 'coming soon'. I hope it surfaces there within the next 11 days because I'd like to exchange my black for a white.

Oy vey, lol, so after I printed out the Walmart ad and had Best Buy price match it, the Walmart site does now carry the white 822 (and it's still being offered for free). Any idea if/how I can return my black 822 to Best Buy, get my upgrade back, and then use it to order the white one at Walmart?
Is that even possible? Somehow?

I agree, I was stressing myself out trying to find the white or grey. I finally just caved and got the black price matched at BB for free. I mean, does the color really matte that much?
The only thing I can tell you is that BB has a 30 day replacement policy, so if white or grey get stocked I that time frame, you can switch. I might switch because this black one is so darn slippery. I know the white is glossy, but I wonder of it sticks better.

Mcskipp, when I tried to order the grey from WalMart, they told me I couldn't because it's not in stock. Made no sense to me, but returning at BB and ordering from WalMart won't work, at least not yet. White and grey are back ordered at WalMart.

I know this may sound stupid, but little things like colors and details mean a lot to me - just kinda wired that way, I suppose (left brained maybe?)
In fact, the only reason I even started looking at the WP8 devices is because of all the cool colors and such. Definitely caught my attention! Had it not been for those little details, I wouldn't even know how great WP8 is now :D

I did read where someone else said that the glossy felt better as far as grip, and not feeling so slippery. I'm hanging on to the black in the hopes that Best Buy picks up the white soon, and I'll swap it out. The only reason I'll even bother, since I'm wrapping an OtterBox around it, is because my wife wants white, and if they come out with a 9xx model, she'll get this phone.

I ordered a white one from costco online yesterday (Monday, 11/19)...the site still says "expected ship date of 11/19" (yesterday). The order said it typically takes 24 to 72 hours to process before shipping. Hasn't shipped yet...will let y'all know when it does. :)

When the WP8 was first announced, I thought that the cool colors were really nice. I was going to get a bright red one. But since I'm locked into vzw, and don't really want the 8X, I'm stuck with boring black, grey or white, haha. So I got the black. But I sure wish they had some colorful 822's.

Just got an email from Costco (even though I canceled my order yesterday) saying the following:
...was originally scheduled to ship 11/19/2012. Due to delays in the launch of the handset, your order is now anticipated to leave our distribution center on 11/28/2012.

Stopped in the Verizon store today and manhandled the white 822. It's so much easier to hold, the white material is much less slippery. I definitely want the white one.
I talked to the store I bought my black 822 at today (Best Buy). They said I have 14 days from the purchase date to return the phone and still get my upgrade back. But, they also said they will exchange my black for white up until the 30 day point.
Dilemma is this: if I keep the black 822 and gamble the wait from 15-30 days, if the white 822 hasn't been released by then, I'm stuck.
So I think I'm going to return my black 822 on the 14th day (if the whites haven't surfaced at BB), get my upgrade back, and then hold onto it and get a white 822 when they are released.
