    ...at Best Buy. I signed up May 19th. Do you guys think Best Buy will get this many phones? I checked yesterday and they said they're up to 73 Pre-Orders. Should I brace myself for the 2nd shipment and waiting another week?

    From what I've been hearing, the preorders are filled first, which means they would get AT LEAST that many phones. It's the extra phones that get skimpy, but those numbers are based on how many preorders they got. More preorders = more 'extra' phones than a store with 2 preorders.

    The BB where i ordered mine said they have 60 preorders but only 40 coming. If I wasnt number 1 on the list, i would end up waiting at the sprint store in the morning and just cancel my preorder.

    I don't think they'd take 50 preorders and get 24 phones. The term "pre" means before, so to have you preorder, release date passes and have you wait for next shipment is a 'postorder'.

    Preorders before the 21st should have phones for you.

    Don't take that as gospel, but that was what was floating around on here previously.


    Call though - they should already have the phones in stock and can tell you.

    This is the way I would think it would be handled, but the 2 Best Buy Mobile asc. explained they never guaranteed "X" amount of phones on June 4th. Needless to say I've called around to Radio Shack and it looks like they have 2 extras and are able to hold one for me if I go in and put $50 down.

    Whattaya guys think?? No brainer?

    I confirmed with my store that preorders before the 21st would indeed be guaranteed a phone. He was probably speaking about his store only, I dunno. I preordered on the 19th, was #47 at mine.

    Why not, we had to put $50 down at Best Buy. You'd be screwed into a $50 GC at BB now though..I dont think that is refundable.

    both my local BB said it would be a month before they filled all the pre orders. They said they preordered way more then they got. They both laughed when i called to ask if i could get one without a preorder.

    Same situation here. I was number 30 something on their list and they said they couldn't gurantee me one. They said they'd call on Thursday to let me know if they would have one for me. If I don't get a call I'll call them. Here's hoping.

    Good news is they said they'd price match radio shack on the samsung moment I'm getting for my wife. Only $50 instead of $100.

    Well...I went ahead and took the deal at Radio Shack. The only downside is that I don't get the $20 gift card they were giving out before. However, he gave me the Friday 7:30am activation time as a consolation. Works for me :)

    At this point, probably not at Best Buy. They haven't stopped signing people up. You'd have better luck calling around to Radio Shack and Sam's Club to get the Pre-Order price. Or just get to a Sprint store early on Friday morning.
