    im at a best buy waiting. i have no preorder. they have 8 for public consumption and i hope im one of the 8. just noticed there is a sprint store across the street with a couple cats at the door... not a lot of folks but just 2-3. i have my laptop and three stooges in the dvd player.

    who else is on the hunt with no preorder?

    I am on the west coast (sacramento area) with no pre order. Going to meet up with my sister in law later when she gets off work (6am) so we can wait outside the sprint corporate store. Should be fun, I hope we both get the phones!

    Seems like, from what I am hearing that the phone isnt selling nearly as many as most of us were thinking. I am thinking anyone who really wants one today will get one.

    yeah im the only geek here.. best buy employees pulling up and if i had a pre order i could probably just go in... imma wait until a customer comes who pre ordered, then walk to the door and see if they will hold one for me.. only reason im here is to get the MIR off the top...

    Yea I feel the same way but I called my BB in town and they didnt have any extras. I actually called the RS in town too and they said they arent getting any phones in at all. I guess thats what I get for living in a small town! At least I get 3g speeds here.

    Hopefully you get the phone! I am going to be watching this forum from my iPhone as I am waiting in line.

    WTF??? 4:30 in the morning and you are already claiming the phone isn't selling.

    Just pathetic.

    Woke up at 6:30am, drove to RS, walked in, waited 5 minutes, bought an EVO no pre-order.
    They had NO accessories at all though. :(

    However they did say that I was the 15 EVO sold already (apparently most people were buying 2 or 3) and that they only had 3 left.

    There was a line outside the Sprint store waiting for it to open as I passed it on my way back to my home.

    Sorry, meant that there arent as many people waiting in line early as we thought there would be. I am talking about the east coast people. They are showing stores with no one outside of them even at 6am. I just figured there would be a lot more people waiting outside early for this.

    Depends on where you're at I suppose.

    Out here in Chicagoland, I already posted photos of about 20 folks waiting outside of the Sprint Store in my office building. Spoke to another fella who saw about the same waiting in one suburb Sprint Store. In the Radio Shack we were in, it was early but at least 4 people came in asking about the Evo (who had not pre-ordered), while the two employees were processing my buddy and 2 other people who had.

    Huzzah!
