    Try finding one today. I walked into a Sprint store and they had just received a shipment. I picked it up and just got home with it. When I walked in the door I got a phone call from another Sprint store (Where I was on the waiting list) saying they had a shipment come in.

    Did it come preinstalled with Froyo?

    Since you have one of the newest handsets possible please share your build date stamp and your hardware version. ##786# then scroll down to HW Version and the number. I'm very curious.

    The build date stamp will be found on the inside of the battery door near the bottom left.

    Ok. I got it at a Sprint store in Ga near Atlanta.

    No it did not come pre-installed with Froyo. I did it w/ wifi and it took about 10 minutes all together.

    HW version is 0003
    Couldn't find bld date or stamp date. Where are those?

    I think this may be it? It is really faint. Looks like it says:
    0710.07.03

    People have speculated that the date stamped on the door is the build date. There has been no confirmation of this so, for all we know this date along with the one by the battery, are just when the parts were built.

    It is there is also a date stamp on the chassis if you take the battery door off its located just under the kick stand on the right hand side next to the black vibrator motor sticking up.

    Not in all cases, older phones like mine don't have the date on the chassis.

    So far a great experience. Riccardo is the best. Call him first for availability. Transfered all my contacts and updated to Froyo.
    Hardware is 003
    stamp on inside of battery cover: DT10 07 04, not sure what this means. Who can be of help?

    By the way, the phone is great.

    Welcome to Evoville, Robinelli.:)
    As you probably know from the Vibrant forum, I have both the Vibrant, and the Evo. While the Vibrant has a beautiful screen, and I love the memory capacity, I would NEVER trade my Evo for it.
    The Evo runs so much smoother, and I think you will love it!

    Well this is a good sign. It means they are still in production because the dates keep getting later and later as they should be. They must be just coming out of the plant at a snails pace however.
