    So, I was the first pre-order at the RS a few blocks away from me and I called to find out about the store opening and if I needed an appt and the girl on the phone asked me my name and then told me that the associate that I ordered my phone from transferred to another store and took his orders with him.

    Called the other store and he's not in and explained my situation to the girl on the phone and she said they are working on getting his transfers to that store but don't know if it's gonna be by Friday.....SAY WHAT?!?!?! I proceeded to tell her that shit just isn't gonna work and that one way or the other....one of these stores will have my phone first thing Friday morning. so, she took my number down and said she will call her manager and then call me back this evening before they close.

    Can you freaking believe this shit???

    I feel for you man. I would go to Gizmodo, Engadget and hope it gets picked up by Digg or Reddit so that you can get a free phone from the publicity. I'm sure RadioShack Corporate doesn't want the bad press/publicity during the launch of a flagship device like the EVO.

    Dude relax, it's just a phone. On a serious note, you should just reinsist with the girl you talked to that you'll then just buy it from her... unless you already paid full price for it. Lol

    On a side note, I'm relatively new to these forums but I find it interesting that they censored out ******ed when i posted but shit is allowed.

    On a serious note. Nothing against the ladies out there, but I have heard way too many "woman" or "lady" on the phone that doesn't know what's up.....including when I called my BB. What's up with that?

    Nah, too much Facebooking and Online shopping. The workers at my BB were just messing around online and barely wanted to take my preorder...

    They are Radio Shack, after all. Hope you get your phone or your $50.

    Yuck! Took his orders with him to another store? WTF! I don't understand that. Keep us posted.

    Why do you care?

    You already pre-ordered. Your name, social security, and all info is already stored in their computer mainframe.

    So, why all this?

    The guy that took my order can move to Bangladesh for all I care, and my info is stored in their computers.

    Heck, that's the reason you have a receipt of the $50.00 deposit.

    ok... even if the guy transfers. it is NOT possible for him to "take the pre orders with him". they are assigned to the store. him moving would not effect your pre order one bit. so i call shenanigans,

    Ok, so I pre-ordered at both Radio Shack, and Best Buy in my Area. So far I got a call from Best Buy this evening to see what time would work for me on Friday, I took the 6pm, not getting up at the crack of dawn before I open my place. As for Radio Shack, no call yet, and when I called before I got the run around....we are opening up early, but we don't know what time, we may do appointments, we may not? Seriously, not a good operation at all. They can keep there $20 for accessories, I would be interested to see how long it takes one of these kids to even get the whole contract finished at the point of sale. If I don't get a call before Friday, I want my $50 back, case closed!

    I'm not sure if Walmart are still taking pre-orders, but I would go to your nearest Walmart and get another pre-order. At least you have another option if the RS pre-order does not materialize. :)

    In brighter news: My Radio Shack just called. They're opening at 6AM and wanted to know if I wanted to be the first there to get my Evo - because he was holding it in his hands.

    So not all Radio Shack's suck.

    Go in there with a chest full of air and grab the manager by the collar. Say "look bish, go get my EVO".

    This is correct. You have a receipt from that Radio Shack. That store owes you the phone.

    Just go in to get you phone, and if they give you any crap, show them the receipt.

    Good luck!

    :rolleyes:I'm just glad I don't work at BB or RS ... because I think I would be offended by that. I'm actually a Technology Teacher @ a junior high.

    When it comes to the EVO, violence may be the answer...

    Radio Shack is taking SSN's to pre-order?

    I wouldn't give them mine. Best Buy is only requiring name, phone number and $50.
