    My wife and I were shopping at Sam's Club today. We finished shopping and were walking toward the exit when my wife said, "Didn't you want to see if they had that phone here?" I walked over to the Radio Shack boys and guess what? Now I have an Evo. Last one they had.

    Did the 50 dollar pre-order deposit thing at Best Buy. It only took about a week for them to get a shipment...which was on the 19th of this month, just last week. Got one white and one black (wife and I).

    Pre-ordered at Radio Shack. Picked up on launch day with appointment, but it took the dumb asses over an hour to get it activated. :(

    Love the phone...so far

    Sprint has assigned sales reps to all small business customers. You just call them up and tell them what you want. I have never had to wait more than a few days for anything(even when the sprint website shows out of stock). I did the same thing when the overdrive came out and had it just a few days later.

    I had verizon and was planning to get the X on launch day...Went to get a haircut in the mall. On the way out ran into my friend who works for sprint (who has been telling me to come in and visit him, to switch to sprint). I asked him if they had any Evo's in stock, he laughed and said "yes we have 1 available, the 24 hr holding period just went up 10 min ago" he said "its yours if you want it". I filled out the paper work and switched over to sprint (he even gave me his employee discount) and have been really really impressed with the HTC Evo ever since

    Got mine through the Sprint Employee Value Program about two weeks ago. Ordered it and got it in about a week.

    Wife liked it and wanted one too. So yesterday I ordered one yesterday for her. It will be here tomorrow.

    Just got mine last evening from the Sprint store. A week before, the employee there said to send her my email address and she will notify me if an EVO is in stock. Got an email from her yesterday morning saying that 5 EVOs were delivered, but two were sold already. I was stuck at work so I didn't stop by until the evening. She said I got the last one and was lucky because people normally call them all the time... except yesterday for some reason. Typing this message by USB tethering right now. I'm afraid to take the screen protector off. Hahaha... you know you did the same thing...

    Best Buy, in late June. I called and they were happy to tell me that they were expecting a shipment that wednesday of 50 EVOs. Instant rebate plus $10 a month no hassle replacement plan (I like to break my phones) can't be beat.

    I put a pre order in on june 1st at bestbuy, got on the second shipment list.

    walked into bestbuy on june 4th at about 9:30, there were 2 people being helped and 1 guy in front of me. walked out of the store around 10 or so with my evo. they said they had about 5 or so evo's not accounted for by the pre order list for 1st shipment.

    they called me the following week to let me know my pre-order had arrived :) should have piked that one up too...

    I live in san francisco and it didn't seem that hard to pick one up in the first few weeks. now not so much.
