    Chicago. The news wire said they only sold 1/3 of what they had claimed how sad that they were that stupid. This is not the good kind of PR IMO.

    If it's all over TV and radio they should have a story up on their websites as well... They do that here in Pensacola, I would expect they would do that in Chicago...

    I don't think it was intentional, I think the original message was just worded poorly. The original message said something to the effect of "more than Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre sales for the first 3 days combined." Which we all took to mean more than both of these phones put together. But I think the intent was that they were saying it sold more than either phone did over the first 3 days combined.

    Is it lying to distribute information & then, when an error has been identified, issue a statement to correct it? What a salacious indictment of a major US corporation. It isn't lying - it miuhgt be if they had tried to hide it but then it would be more like politics! :rolleyes:

    The fact that they corrected their error shows good intentions. It would be misleading to investors to do anything but be accurate about this and no one wants SEC involvement.

    Who cares what some stupid article said - call around, evo is sold out everywhere. Sprint prob needed a few days to figure it all out.

    It's still Sprint's fastest selling phone compared to the Pre, Instinct and others, who cares?

    All companies lie about release numbers. All of them. Apple is the worst.

    Well, we've had several people try to start threads about this here...claiming that Sprint was lying about the sales numbers. If they were lying, then why did they correct it themselves? Also, as you alluded to in your own comment, it's not terrific PR. I'm guessing that somebody at Sprint got fired over screwing up the number counts. It happens.

    I would think about renaming the title of this post, unless you have some evidence that they were, in fact, lying about the numbers. I doubt it. The fact that they had to correct it is very embarrassing for them. Doesn't sound like a 'plan' to me.

    The extra $10 EVO tax already misleading enough. I am not surprised at all to see this sales number wrong.

    Negative people make me sick...like seriously, if u have the phone and your happy why do u really care about how many phones were sold, or who lied. All these threads are becoming child like! Stop worrying about how many phones were sold, and start putting up threads that have a bearing on using your phone in the every day real world.
