    Long story short.

    Official Upgrade Date is 9/1

    Noted on Account (can upgrade THROUGH Sprint) 14 days early.

    My preference is Best Buy - not even close - but - I want the phone. If I knew (if anyone knew LOL) that it would indeed be available on 9/1, and not be a repeat of the EVO shortages - then, I'm cool. BUT that ain't happening in my scenario. So,

    Can I Get the phone from Sprint when it releases? Yes!

    IF Best Buy has them in stock after 9/1, within the 30-day window - can I return the original phone to Sprint - I purchase my "keeper" @ Best Buy? If so - and restocking - or other downside?

    Thanks - something to ponder while killing the time! LOL

    Are you Premier? I think they have more leeway on a 24 (or 22) month upgrade than a 12 month upgrade. I'm premier - so 9/1 is 12 months.

    Personally, I avoid BestBuy whenever possible.
    They're a typical corporate big box store who would prefer laying off employees with seniority (in order to keep salaries down) to having knowledgeable salespeople on the floor.
    And they are much more concerned with selling you the product with the highest margin than getting you the best product for your needs - or what they would get for themselves. Costco is about the only big box store that seems to actually have some loyalty to their customers & employees.
