    I've been calling up all best buys within a 50 mile radius practically every hour to see if they have any white evos in stock (or black for that matter). I finally called a place that had them and they said they had three left. I asked if I got there in 10 minutes would they still have them in stock even though i was probably more like 45 minutes away. They said no way and that they sell like hot cakes. I want it from BB because of their no deductible insurance (every one of my last 5 phones has been accidentally damaged...taking them into a pool, dropping them...) and they are the only people that have the white ones. Give me my Evo already!

    I assume you somehow posted this from your car, on the way there.

    lol. No. I'm at home which is 45 minutes away from best buy. I asked them if it would be there in 15 minutes just to see if I had a chance. I only asked 15 minutes because if they didn't think they would have it in 15, there is no way they would have it in 45. Sorry if that's confusing. lol

    The thread title is kind of weird. Best Buy had them and then......Nothing! You didn't go get it!

    I would have hopped in the car and took the chance while begging the rep to hold it for me......If not, I would have called every 10 minutes for a stock update so you could have turned around if they sold out......Otherwise you could have been posting from your EVO right now......But we will never know.

    I would have offered to give them a CC# to hold it. If they had that, then at least they know you are willing to buy it.

    I was lucky enough to get mine from BB, and i must say the white one is bad ass. Except I don't let anyone else hold it anymore. the first 3 people i showed it to dropped it because the white back is glossy and smooth. i've never dropped it once and good thing its built tough. it only has 1 little nick in it out of the 3 times it got dropped. . after that 3rd drop, i said no more. YOU CAN LOOK BUT YOU CAN''T TOUCH LOL

    also got that BB ins

    If you're ready to shell out some money and wait a little more, try shopping online at BestBuy. Then you can either opt to ship it at your place or pick it up at your nearest best buy for free. At least you would know you'll get the phone you like at a certain time, instead of waiting in limbo for one.

    I called BB in an area that was 50 miles from me to get my sons. I told my son to pre order with my husband but he didnt listen....so I called they had one in stock. I ask the BB mobile manager to hold it one hour and he did....OP SHOULD HAVE gotten off your booty and claimed your evo...Maybe you didnt wanted as bad as others who would have been on a ROOOOAAADDDTRIIIP!!!

    When I found a Best Buy that had one, I asked them to hold it for me for one hour and it was no problem. I just gave them my name and phone number :thinking:

    If you keep posting about not trying to get an EVO, you will never get one. :D

    Er. Why didn't the OP just check the stock on bestbuy.com? The black ones won't show, but the white ones sure do. That's why I went to Best Buy in the first place four days ago, expecting to walk out with a white one but finding they had both colors in stock. *shrug*

    Talk about expending more effort than needed...

    Wrong Question:
    Correct Question:
    "Will you hold one for me? I've been looking all over. I'm literally sprinting to my car right now!"

    When the right question is asked, your answer is there. Or something Zen sounding.

    Because the BB online in-stock thing is not always correct. I checked One of my local stores about an hour before they opened and the web site showed "in-stock" for the white EVO. I got to the store when they opened and asked if they had any, they only had EVOs for people with rain checks. I saw about 10 sitting in a cabinet and all had pieces of paper with names on them. I mentioned that the web site claims that they had some in stock. The manager said it shows up that way because they do have phones in stock, but since they are all reserved for people on the waiting list and not technically sold yet, they will appear on BB.com. He said they are getting a lot of people coming in because people see them in stock, only to get to the store and not find any EVOs!
