    I pre-ordered my EVO at Radio Shack on Saturday. When the guy was ringing it up the manager came over and asked what the pin# was on the reciept and I asked him "whats that" he said "it's how many EVO's have been sold nationwide".
    After he walked off antoher guy came to ring up someone else and was excited to see what the pin# was as well.

    So what I would like to do is establish a timeline from the start of the official preorder to now.
    Now the pin# is posted at the top of your receipt, mine is:
    5/22
    127,851

    Now keep in mind this is not just RS this is nationwide, you may also see something similar on your BB receipt so post that up as well.

    Thanks

    See it make since to me, not sure whats up with the first post up top though.
    would like to hear from some later preorders though.

    If anyone knows someone that works at a Radio Shack, call them up and ask them if what I stated is true.

    Maybe you asked the wrong question, because what you typed sounds to me like no one has preordered from the to RS's that you called.

    He said the number was nationwide, but did he specify nationwide Radioshacks or nationwide for every store that is selling it? I am going to assume this is RS only because how would they know how many BB has preordered?

    I would assume that it is all tied in with sprint.

    S Sprint Nextel management conference call takeaways - FBR Capital (4.79 )
    FBR Capital notes, On May 24, it held a conference call with Matt Carter, president of the Sprint 4G group, and Iyad Tarazi, vice president of network development and engineering. Firm came away from the call encouraged by on multiple fronts including the co's 4G network strategy and potential to lower its cost structure and churn-a major investor focus. Pre-registrations for the HTC EVO 4G device are the highest for any device in the co's history and Sprint is "more pleased" with the ratio of new prospects, particularly from existing iPhone customers. FBR estimates close to 1 mln registrations to date and a 70% to 75% upgrade ratio, which is encouraging.

    I don't think it is. Even if it was, BB would not tell RS how many they have, and vice versa.
