    So I'm going away June 4-6...leaving before my BB opens on the 4th so I won't be able to get one until I get back in the afternoon on the 6th or Monday the 7th. I'm going to go to a NYC best buy if that matters. Do I still need to pre-order if I'm not going on release day or should I just be able to walk in on Sunday or Monday?

    i would imagine so, just look at the incredible sales.... i think in this economy HTC and Sprint does not have the money to make a whole bunch of extra unites and have they sit around, i think they are making them as needed... not to say you buy then they make it but they are manufacturing on a much more reasonable and thought out predicted path

    So will Sprint do a pre-order, as well? I was planning on ordering online to take proper and full advantage of the Student Discount (and accompanying $50 credit). Sorry, don't know the release procedures for Sprint

    heres the question that I have, since I'm in the same boat I'm leaving right at 8AM Friday the 4th and won't get back till sunday night, if I pre-order via RS or BB will my phone be there when I get back? Or will they have sold the stock making me wait days or even weeks?

    I just pre-ordered from Best Buy. Advantage is two fold. 1.) If you don't end up wanting the phone you just have a $50 giftcard to use for anything else in the store. 2.) You don't have to deal with rebates. They do the $100 mail-in rebate.

    I would pre-order if you want one because like others said the Incredible is backordered and that one isn't as hyped or has the specs of this one of a kind Sprint phone has.
