    Best Buy called and said that they're going to be opening at 7:00 am to allow Evo pre-order customers to pick up their phones on the morning of the 4th and they wanted to know if I would like to come in that morning instead of waiting until 6:00 pm. Hell yes I want my phone early! but alas Sprint has decided to release the phone on the one day that my attendance at work is MANDATORY due to a company luncheon that everyone has to attend. The good news is that I'll probably be off work early that day, but all the morning's festivities are required.

    So, I guess I'll just have to be content to sit here at my desk and read all about how badass the phone is from everyone that's going to be able to get theirs before work that morning.

  2. Your day is going to go by so slow knowing that you could be playing with the Evo, but instead your stuck at work.

    Looks like I'm not the only one that has to wait. I too have work that day and it sucks. I wont be getting my EVO till probably around 6 pm. Hmmm I'm debating if I should just take off work that day lol.

    DO IT, Take off....I already have the 4th scheduled off, as soon as I did my pre-order.

    And I have been carefully making sure not to schedule anything on the 4th that would force me to come to work.

    So I better get that call from BB, my appointment is for 11:30 am, but I want it earlier lol. Im almost willing to try preordering at RS just for an earlier pick up time. I can always use the BB gift card for something else.

    Lucky for me the 4th is my 9/80 day off so I won't have to work. I was going to schedule a motorcycle run to northern california for the weekend but its hard to play with a new phone while you're riding a bike so I think i'm going to cancel

    I also have the PM part of the 4th taken off. My appointment time at BB is for noon so, I'm leaving work at 11:30 and taking the rest of the day off. Ain't nothing stoppin me either. Even if every computer in the company dies.

    My brother did it for me, so I'm not sure if he specifically asked or if that's how our particular store does it. He has the slot in front of me.

    Actually, I preordered at a BB Mobile store.....as the BB in my area does not carry Sprint phones.

    So that could be one reason why I have an appointment time....being as it is a small store and probably couldnt handle the the line of alot of people.

    Crap...I just thought of the fact that the BB Mobile is inside a mall, dont think it can open up earlier :(

    My BB is also in a mall so perhaps my brother ordered it at the BB Mobile and the fact that they aren't expecting that many people is why they gave us appointments?

    Somebody better start advertising or the only people in line on June 4 will be the pre-orderers!

    Eh Im not too worried about advertising.....there have been EVO banners on the Web now for a good couple months.

    Sprint is probably playing it smart, lets remember this will also be the most advance Android phone, which that alone will sell the phone.

    With that said...this is not like the PRE last year, where Palm needed the phone out far more than Sprint....which is why we got that horrid commercial.

    The EVO will sell regardless....besides, I want mine first.

    The BB I went to in Delaware is huge. They didn't give me an appointment time either. Given their size I'm not too worried about screw ups.

    i have an appt at RS at 0900 on the 4th to pick up my phone. unfortunately, i live in washington so practically everyone else will have theirs already. however, we also have 4G here so... i guess thats a bonus. :)

    Just set up my time, with the Best Buy next door to Sprint Corp., so hopefully come 7am on the 4th when I power it up I will be connecting to a nice 4G signal!

    I should've preordered at that store... I preordered at 95th and Quivera... it's the store closest to where I work, I didn't even think that my company is moving next week and we'll be closer to the Metcalf store now. I'm so annoyed at myself...

    I was surprised walked into the Metcalf store the day of pre-orders around noon and turns out I was the 1st pre-order. She did say she has about 70 now though. She also said she was trying to do about 1 an hour starting at 7am. I dont know how well that will actually workout for her though...
