    Why is the Evo from sprint online available to buy, yet the best buy's around here tell me they havent had one come in for like 2-3weeks. Wonder when the stores will start getting them.

    So why not buy it online? You'll get it fast.

    I sold my gift card and spot on the waiting list. Got the $50 I paid out of it. Just a thought...

    (maybe) Because BB (and TheShack) has instant rebates instead of wating around 8 weeks for your 100 bucks.

    ^ Yep. I believe it's $600 to buy from BB w/o contract. I certainly wouldn't buy from them.

    Also, I really don't understand why the EVO is so hard to get right now. HTC's production line leaves much to be desired.

    Said 199.99 at BB for upgrade, and no wait on rebate.

    A Mexican guy sold me one out of his trunk. I became suspicious when I discovered it was made of wood with "EVO Phono" written on it with black magic marker. I still can't get the damned thing to boot. The guy at tech support said to remove the battery but I don't think this model has one.

    Can anyone one else who owns the wooden EVO model without a battery give me some advice? If I can't get this to work I'm gonna find that guy and get my $5 back. Must be one of those "refurb" units.
