    First and foremost, up until today I had planned on camping the Sprint store to get my EVO on launch day. My partner decided he wanted to consider preordering from Best Buy so I have a few questions that some of you may be able to help me with:

    I'm not the premiere line on my account and I'm eligible for $75 off. I thought this meant $75 off of $450 (at Sprint) with no $100 mail in rebate. If you are in my situation, does Best Buy still allow you to preorder? What would I be getting myself into here (price and what not)?

    Also, a friend of ours preordered his EVO recently and was #42 on the list. They told him they were going to open early with appointments and they would have a time slot for him to come and pick up his EVO. Does Best Buy plan on having that many EVO's? Really?

    Anyone who works or has dealt with Best Buy would be very helpful, and thanks.

    Best Buy is most likely going to charge $600. I wouldn't go there. You'd really be better off going to the Sprint store and getting $75 off the $450. RadioShack is charging $499 for non-contract....but I'm not sure what their policy is regarding pre-orders for people not eligible for full upgrades, but I'd call my local RS to verify.

    They do not have a sku so they do not know how much it will be. I was told price matching was on a case to case basis.

    According to the radio shack thread, you get the 100 mir, 75 discount off 499. But who knows.
