    I have a few buddies who work at different Sprint stores and they both recommended getting there at least a few hours early. Keep in mind this is most definately the nicest phone Sprint has ever had and one of the top phones out now or on the horizion, period. While this may not get iphone demand, there is a strong possibility that it will receive the highest demand for a phone outside of that.

    My guess is the pre orders will be camped out early in the AM, I'll just wait until mid afternoon and pick it up then. With 5 RS's, 4 BB's and at least 6 Sprints stores not to worried about inventory.

    It'll probably depend on location. I'm in a small town with no 4G, so I would expect very few people camping. I could be wrong though, which is why preordered at BB.

    no point in camping out if you pre ordered a phone.

    I think if you go to a Sprint store at pretty much any point in the morning you won't have much of a problem getting one.

    Since I have to work early anyway, I am going to swing by the local Shack at 6AM and see if I can score one...since they are no longer taking Pre-Orders.

    Because they are nerds like a lot of us on here.

    I think there will be lines, how big I have no idea.

    I would think that there would be lines (because there were for the Pre last year. I know, I was FIRST :p) EXCEPT for the fact that they have done pre-orders for the EVO and you shouldn't have to wait in line if you pre-ordered. So it's hard to say.

    I have my phone pre ordered but that wont stop me from showing us at RS first thing in the morning. I want the device as soon as possible and if others have the same mindset as me then I guess there will be a line in the morning. I already know of at least one other person on this forum that mentioned they'll be showing up at the same store that I made my pre ordered with the same determination to be first out the door with the Evo.

    Too bad I'm going to disappoint him. LOL

    I don't think in my area they will be, but I could be wrong. I underestimated the Wii release and got there like 30 minutes before Best Buy opened and luckily was number like 57 of 60 units that they had.
