    best buy just called told me they were opening up at 7am and asked if i wanted to move my 9am slot to then, i was like hell yea! so yea, i'll have it at 7!

    sounds like they are starting to get calls out now, they wanted to make sure i knew about the extra $10, and asked if they should set aside any cases, desk chargers, car mounts, or car chargers for me!

    so if this is any indication that things are getting close, get ready for some calls! my best buy has been on top of the ball as far as the EVO goes so i was glad to hear they were getting so prepared and even asking if i wanted to put accessories on hold

    I just checked the RS where I ordered and they are not opening early :(
    They said they needed 4 pre-orders to open early and they only have 2, me being one of them, but the guys said he is going to ask his manager if he can come in at 8 or 8:30 to help me get my phone!! :D

    My Best Buy hasn't coordinated appointments, but I think is because it wasn't well thought about here in DC. Then again, I placed my preorder within 5 hours of preorders going live. I'm going to either have to get my phone before work or after (I park in a daily lot)

    good to see that bb is taking this more seriously than sprint was with the pre. its just crazy how much attention this phone is grabbing, and its not even out yet.

    Mine is opening at 7:30. I have the #1 appointment.
    Best Buy did NOT open early for the Pre, but considering they only had about 4 on hand that would be a waste wouldn't it.
    My local BB has 50 pre-orders.

    got one yep

    My Torrance BB told me a while back they'd be open at 7am for the pre orderers and today they called me and gave me an 8am slot on June 4th.

    They also asked me if I wanted them to install a screen protector..I said no thanks..not sure if I should have or not..I just figure I can get a better quality one on my own...this is my first smartphone/Android exposure..and I have everything to learn.
