    I've called up about 10 sprint stores, 10 best buy stores, and 10 radio shacks all around my area and none of them have the Evo. I want it so bad! A lot of the places said there was waiting lists with like 50 people on it. What should I do and where is my best bet on getting one as soon as possible?

    Get on as many waiting lists as possible and drop by every sprint store you can as often as possible to see if you roll the dice right and they have on in stock.

    I'm having the same problem. I heard that they were recalled. I wonder when they will be re-released? I'm guessing that when they are re-released it will be HW 0004 or 0005.

    I called up Sprint customer service and ordered one anyways. They said it would go on backorder so I said that's fine. This was yesterday (July 12th) Last night at 9PM or so I get an email from Sprint saying my order has shipped! The email even included the UPS tracking. So supposedly tomorrow I should have it!

    Why they told me they were out then shipped one anyways I don't know but I am not complaining!
    I guess I won't get too excited until tomorrow when it shows up.

    I don't know if I got lucky.. But on launch day, my local Sprint store still had several in stock at the end of the day. I couldn't get mine, because their systems were down, and they couldn't activate new customers =[. BUT they did hold on for me, and I got it the next day.

    Is there a difference between calling and going into the store?

    Yes! At launch day I went home empty handed and tried again the following day... still no luck so I called the customer service and boom I got my unit 2 days after. Lucky for me it is a perfect unit... no problems what so ever...

    I think ordering online is the quickest way. Really. Probably the best way too. If you have any problems you can take it to a sprint corporate store for free service. Suck it up and pay the extra 100 and wait for the rebate.

    I would say eBay would be the fastest, as well as most expensive!!

    Sprint got rid of doing rebates for the next month, so even that's not an issue.

    I'm trying to do the instant rebate and studentrate discount. Can you do that? If so, I may drive from Cary:D

    Nope, I work at an indirect dealer, so I can't give out those deals. If you make the trip, it's going to be 299.99 plus tax today. Sorry. I'll hold it for you if you want it, though.

    Sorry. I'm shooting for the 199.99 up front, with $25 off each of my next two Sprint bills, and a $25 rebate in the mail. If it weren't worth waiting for such a good offer I would be in my car and on my way:eek:

    Edit: Though, considering the Sprint site hasn't put up and stock for days now, and the studentrate offer ends tomorrow, I may be SOL on that deal.
