    Any one have experience with Wal-mart's wireless department? I ask because there's a 24 hour Wal-mart near my house, and it'd be cool to stroll in at 12:01am Jun 4th and snag an EVO. I know I did that when the Xbox 360 was released many many moons ago. lol

    Does Wal-mart typically get hot new phones on release day or do they lag behind a few days? Any Wal-mart employees or people in the know on the boards?

    PS I've already pre-ordered at BB so I'll have mines when they open at 10am, but it'd be cool to scoop it up at midnight then just use my $50 preorder card at BB on accessories.

    I talked to a Sam's Club Cell phone kiosk and they started pre-selling yesterday. In the Sam's Club in Stafford, they even give away a $20 gift card for accessories.

    i havent heard anything about walmart doing pre-orders. and at this point so close to the release, i doubt that they will. but i dont know for sure. just my opinion.

    I guess the Wal-Marts in my area don't sell Sprint phones.

    It's not really walmart. I think the Kiosk in Sam's Club is independently owned. The calling card that was given to me says SCK inc.

    Don't know about availability, but they sell it for $199 up front, no need to pay $299 with Sprint and wait for the E-mail rebate.

    On Friday 6/4/10
    I went hunting for the Evo

    Best Buy - Pre orders only until 6/10/10
    Radio Shack - Pre Orders only until everyone name is off their list or they have spare stock (2nd or 3rd shipment)

    Wal mart - I went to 6 different walmarts, all different results:

    #1 - She has recieved a dummy evo but the actual phones did not come in.
    #2 - whats an Evo
    #3 - no sprint phones
    #4 - please come back noon, she knew about the phone
    #5 - no sprint phones
    #6 - I havent recieved shipments, not sure if we are gonna get it

    Saturday I went to 2 more walmart

    #1 - I went to the #2 store above - sry we dont have any
    #2 - new walmart - Katy, TX - she had 10 in the front, unsure how many in the back.
    I was the first guy on Saturday 3pm to grab the Evo from there.


    SO YMMV with Wal Mart!

    I feel you Demo. On Friday - I went to 4 RS, 4BB and 6 Walmart + 6-8 Sprint stores.
    I an indpendent contractor worker so I drive to alot of places, so every time I see one of those stores, I make a quick stop.
    everyone denied me of my evo, no pre order.

    sat - 2 rs, 1bb, 3 sprint before I hit the 2 wal marts, all denied until wal mart said yes.
    i was so thrilled. I walked in there with an expectation of NO.
