    Hello, first time poster here. Anyway, I pre-ordered my Evo about a week or so ago at Best Buy. The guy who sold me the pre-order said because of the high amount of pre-orders there was a chance I wasnt going to get it on the 4th. Fair enough I already knew that. I called Best Buy yesterday to ask when I was supposed to come in, if they made appointments, etc.. Im not sure if the lady was clueless or what but she said that if was first come first serve at the store for this phone. This didnt sound right because the rest of you have set up appointments.


    Is this the case for anyone else? First come first serve on Friday?

    I am in Texas and have an appointment to get my phone on Friday.

    When I pre-ordered, I was told that I was about the 30th to do so.

    Where in Texas did you pre-order your Evo? I hope it won't be the same one I'm getting mine. I already have an appointed time to come get my evo. :)

    I went to the store to pre-order, and they had me fill out a short name/email/phone number information sheet. I was called a couple days after asking when I wanted to come in to pick it up.

    BB at NW 410 across from North Star Mall.

    Same here, but I was called twice, the second one was to re-schedule me an hour and a half earlier. Which I was happy to accept. :D

    Hmm I know the Best Buy at the RIM where I pre-ordered mine, they are strictly doing pre-orders with an appointment the first day. Which best buy did you go to?

    I preordered at the one by North Star on day 1 and set my appt time....They called a couple of weeks ago to confirm I still wanted it. They called again this morning to tell me they will be opening up an hour early and I could schedule my appt earlier if I wanted to.

    I was at the Ingram location yesterday to show my wife the demo EVO they had. I overheard the sales rep telling a customer that any preorders will be on the 2nd shipment BUT he did say that they will have a small amount available on day 1 for first come first serve......

    I would just show up at the sprint store in your area very early, or just order it online. Why be dependent on Best Buy

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! What's up my TX peeps? I pre-ordered at the Rim for my brother and I and they filled out the paper for me and then gave me a sheet of paper and asked me to fill out what times we wanted to come in. The first 2 available together were 12:30 & 1:00 on the 4th so maybe we'll see you guys (BobTX10 or SteveChiller) there! 4 days and some change people! My brother and I actually just came back from the BB at the Rim where we checked out the EVO display (and pretty much everything else in the store). IMHO it is NOT too big and I have tiny girl hands! Unfortunately it was just a dummy phone, but it made me all the more excited to get it!!!!!!

    bummer, sorry! i caught wind of the EVO right after CTIA and have been EVO hungry ever since (just like last year with the Pre). so as soon as pre-orders were available, i was all over it! hopefully you will get lucky and be able to pick one up on the 4th!

    Hey hopalee! I cannot wait for the 4th either. I am just as enthusiastic as you and the wait is torture cause i know the day is almost upon us! What sucks is that I made an appointment for 7pm as I thought I would have school that day but just so happens that I dont. I talked to the employees and they said the store just might open up early, so maybe I can catch an earlier spot.

    Well, I pre-orderd mine a while ago, and the person was saying that their might not be enough, but most like wont be the case. They order the phones by how many pre-orders they get. So I'm a little confused as to how you can not have enough phones, as you would have to not set aside the right amount of phones for the pre-orders. BB called me today saying they were opening 1 1/2 hours early just for pre-orders, so after that, it must be first come first serv.

    yeah that makes sense. Dont you think the whole purpose of a pre-order is so you are guaranteed to get the phone when it comes out. stupid really.
