    Confirmed! I spoke with my Best Buy today concerning everyone getting pickup schedules and I hadn't been notified of this. Well, the salesman told me they just discussed this today at there store for scheduling so I went ahead and made my time for pickup. It's only because they expect the servers to set up the accounts to be bogged down and possibly have to phone in the account changes. When we got done with that I asked about accessories and he said that they talked about some cases, chargers, screen covers, the hdmi cable, and he also notified me that they were told today that everyone that pre ordered would recieve a bluetooth headset for free to try and match what radio shack is doing for there evo pre order sales. He also said that today was the last day to pre order for june 4th pick up guarantee. If they run out of evo's on the 4th it could be a week for them to get more. I'm not 100% sure, but I think he said the headset will be a plantronics model. He said that they are middle grade units and they are pretty nice. Not the best, but not the worst either. Anyone else heard this?

    I heard this from someone a few days ago in the forums also, but never heard anything else about it until today. The Best Buy salesman told me about it, I didn't ask him about it. We will get them when we pick up the phone. I would also call Best Buy and go ahead and schedule your appointment time for pick up if you haven't already done so or been called.

    They handed me a $50 Best Buy gift certificate just now when I placed my pre-order. I wonder if I'll get a headset too...

    I would say it is very true. He would have no reason to tell me something that wasn't true. I just wish I would have confirmed the model. I'm almost positive he said Plantronics, but he never said the model. Regardless, at least we'll get something like the radio shack pre orders. Maybe this will be even sweeter. And, if you don't want it, sell it on Ebay.

    That is the only thing that every pre order got. When we go to pick them up I suppose they'll give the headsets then. Can someone else call their Best Buy tomorrow and also confirm this? Like I said, he told me that info so I believe it but another confirmation will help ease our minds on the confirmation. Also, get the model of the headset.

    Wow, if that's true, that's pretty sweet. And if not, I'm not losing anything. So YAY!

    I just went in tonight to check on my preorder and I too was told that we will be receiving a free bluetooth headset with the phone to "out-do" RS. It was a very nice surprise.

    Time out. You paid for the $50 giftcard... right? If you didn't then there was a mistake.

    $149 for the phone plus the $50 you spent for the gift card pre order = $199. Yep, thats about right minus some change and the tax. Oh, and don't forget if your a regular Best Buy shopper that you may have reward zone points. I've got $45 worth of points.

    I didn't ask, but the manager made it seem like it was a great deal. He said it was worth about $50 which shocked me considering RS is only give a $20 gift card. He also mention they would also be giving discounts on accessories. I must say that I love competition. We're the winners every time.

    I suppose regardless of the model, it's a great surprise! I'd still like to know though. Man, come on June 4th!

    I'll be selling mine if I get one. Car has bluetooth, and I've never been a fan of headsets. The people that walk around ALL day with them in their ear ruined it for me.

    At least we are getting a little something extra though. It is sort of a cheaper headset, and I have three others that I don't need now. I'll have a couple on Ebay coming up soon myself. LOL

    So it is unanimous! Good news for us Best Buy shoppers. Plantronics 230, ahhh, it could be worse. We could be getting nothing extra like we thought when we first signed up for the Evo. Thanks Radio Shack, and thank you Best Buy.

    It's better than nothing though. That is what we thought we were getting from our Best Buy pre orders. Maybe they'll pull $20 off Ebay. Lets check and see.
