    This may have been discussed numerous times here, but what if Sprint launches the sale of the EVO on their website on 5/28, a week prior to its retail delivery date? Blackberry pulled this with the release of the 9650 through Sprint last week and if you would have ordered it the day it came out (Sun) you would have had it by Tues or Wed? Any thoughts?

    On line ordering? Absolutely not!!!! I will wait for it to hit stores. HTC better have enough piled up to go around. I know the screens are diff, but after the incredible fiasco, they better be ready this time with Sprint!

    i think i'd be stuck. I pre-ordered at Radio Shack and i believe the $50 i put down is nonrefundable. I'll be sad if this happens and i have to wait

    What is wrong with ordering online straight from Sprint? You'd get the phone on Tuesday for the same price.

    While I would LOVE an early release, unless Sprint moves a bunch of Pre owners eligibility dates up a few days... I'll be waiting until June 1st at the earliest.

    But my opinion there is, "What's a couple of days?!"

    They wont. I just got home from the Sprint store looking for an EVO dummy to size up. The Mgr there said she wont even get a Dummy before June 1st let alone a phone. Said they are being very strict with this launch.

    Haha. I'd love it but aint no chance. The 9650 had none of the pub of the Evo and none of the thousands of Radio Crap and BB preorders. If Sprint EVER wanted to do business again through a reseller, they'd never do this.

    I wish they would, though!

    Really? I was at a Radio Shack today in Puerto Rico (we hardly tend to get things in a timely fashion) and a clueless employee mistakenly thought they had gotten the phones in already because they had a demo/dummy box in the back, or so she said (she actually went in the back to look for it when I started asking about it).

    Then again, every single employee at that RS store seemed utterly clueless and not one could confirm they'd actually have the phone on the 4th... :(

    Really well are they doing pre orders in PR? If so do a pre order.

    They are, but for some reason they can't guarantee they'll actually get it in on the 4th, neither can Best Buy... Sprint stores have told me they will definitely get 'em then, so I'm holding off on the pre-order for now. I'll probably visit RS & BB again on Monday to see if they have a clue yet... I think their employees are just horribly misinformed.

    I'll stick with my preorder. If I were to buy it online from Sprint, I would have to deal with the mail in rebate. BB frees me of that rebate.
