I was on the waiting list at a Sprint store and they called yesterday. Here's a kicker, they would not let me pay full price (not even close to the contract date on my acct) saying that I had to add a line. I told them it was BS and I called Sprint Customer Service. Sprint put me on hold, called the store and spoke to the Asst Mgr, then came back on with me and told me to go buy my phone at the store, which I did. Just an FYI for anyone having the same issue. Basically, the stores are trying to add to their stats by making people add lines. Sprint Customer Service should help you out if you run into this resistance.
