    So for those of you that will be going to Sprint to wait in line, how early do you plan on going? I have never stood in line for something like this, but I will be traveling for a while and REALLY want to get it before I leave on Saturday morning. Myself, I am thinking about 5 in the AM...is this crazy or a good plan?

    I was in line at 5:00 in the morning the day the BlackBerry Storm came out on Verizon... NEVER AGAIN... they had 250 Storm's at my location and maybe 20 people at 7:00 when they opened. The only nice part about freezing my butt off for 2 hours was that I did get helped before the 11th person in line... lol

    I'll be there about 7:45 this time... If the line is too long, I'll hit it in the evening. I think there's going to be plenty of them around.

    Our stores here in Tally have plenty to go around for at least a good 2-3 days after release, supposedly. This info is also from the people who had no idea about the CL14 update after it was released for the Moment, when I had it. So of course, you KNOW it HAS to be accurate.

    One of the stores here are saying they have 40 and another one won't fess up the quantity they will have on hand. I am a bit paranoid, so I guess I will go early. If there is no line...well, might hit the IHOP across the street. ;)

    I don't know about you but I would imagine that San Antonio is a huge market for the evo and 4g in general, so you may be a bit surprised:eek:

    I have given some consideration to the San Antonio/G4 market. I know when Clear came to town, there was quite the stir. I am not sure how many subscribers there are, but I imagine it's pretty good. So, I think I am still going to aim for 0500-0530. Yeah...it's kinda early, but better safe than sorry. Perhaps I will be the 1st one in line! Not only to mention that Thursday is last day of school...so could be LOTS of kids getting new toys!

    Damn that... The RS by my house said a group of ladies planned on camping out a "few" hours early for the phone. They open at 6. Daddy's day is around the corner and bratty kids want the new bling. I'll beat those cows to the door I guarantee ya! If I get there too early, the toothless staff at the Waffle House will keep me company for a while, I'm sure.

    Damn! Wish I had a WH close by. Stupid San Antonio, no WH for 100's of miles! I could hang out and chow down on my double quarter cheese plate!

    Planning on getting there at least an hour early, maybe a bit earlier if I get out of bed early enough. I am just hoping there are at lest a few other folks there too. Will be fun to hang with other tech heads that hour. And I still have my Hero to help me pass the time.

    But honestly?? I figure I could roll into the Sprint store at 10:00 AM and still get my two Evos. But still want to get there early. Just part of my fun and excitement.

    I hope everyone at the store I am going to is doing what you guys are and getting there only an hour early. It opens at 8am, I will be there around 4:30am :)

    do we know if the Sprint stores are opening early or as regularly scheduled?

    I get off work at 730am and would like to drop by to pick one up (off contract).

    Apparently Friday is "donut day" at Dunkin Donuts. Free doughnut with the purchase of a drink. Good for some breakfast while we wait in line :)

    I am going to get there at 6:15 or so. Going to wait in line with my sister in-law. Should be fun, hopefully we can get some phones.

    I live in a fairly small town but the sprint employee said he expects a long line when they open. We will see...

    I will be at the one in Marietta, GA at 5:45am with breakfast for the manager and her staff (I've already got their orders.) Hey - it's the least I could do to show my appreciation. Yes, I know, they were told they had to open that early, but like I tell my students - "It's good to be nice to one another."
