Let's separate the future owners from.....those other people.
I just have my business rep order it as soon as his system allow him to.
Got one reserved at a sprint store but will be buying it at best buy where i pre ordered
got it preordered already just waiting now.
Preordered @ BestBuy (2nd in line)....& made a backup reservation @ Sprint.
Preordered at RS since I have one right here in my little town. Was gonna just wait and call my Sprint contact, but I don't want to overpay in taxes..
You guys thinkin that the demand for this phone will be as epic as it was for the EVO?
i havent made any reservations, but hoping to get it on day 1
I am waiting for user reviews. I do want the phone badly but patience never hurts.
i have mine Preordered at RS. The rep told me that i was the second lol and that was on sunday. he said majority of the poeple that come in the store are t mobile customers. so im sure i could have gone in on day 1 and purchased an epic.
Pre ordered at RS yesterday and I was only the 2nd one to do so. Thought that was kinda strange. I figured they would tell me I'm outta luck.....
As much as i want to pre-order right now to get it at 8am on the 31st, i'm willing to wait a day or two for the price to go under $200 somewhere.
i will be really pissed off if the Epic is out of stock everywhere... but i doubt it
Mine is reserved!! Searching for an EVO for weeks im DONE...
i reserved at 2 sprint store in chicago, i have friends =), i am on the list at radio shack #1 on the list of 6.
some are going to take this the wrong way, but if you are reserving phones come in to the black neighborhoods, reason why is us as blacks/aa dont reserve. the list in chicago are crazy open. if you go the predominantly white areas the list are long.
Less than 1 week...woohoo.
i preordered at BB as well. I don't think the demand is going to be as high because they aren't advertising this phone for some reason. All I see is EVO ads everywhere. So maybe they don't intend for there to be a rush initially or maybe they don't have a high supply so they don't want too high of a buzz. Im not sure what the reason but it is a shame that one of the best phones available isn't getting marketed.
I wasn't taking any chances on a shortage. I usually prefer to wait and see how the phones do in the real world, but I just can't stand this Instinct much longer.
I Pre ordered at Best Buy on August 13, been crazy waiting for the phone. Only 1 week away, looking forward to it.
I have mine reserved at a sprint store... but I might buy it from Amazon.
I reserved mine from a Sprint store more than an hour away because all the local Sprint stores had the preorders already filled up. On launch day I will go to my local Radio Shack and see if I can pick one up and avoid the mail in rebate and about $9.25 saved in sales tax because it would be $100 less from Radio Shack due to not having to deal with the mail in rebate (if I buy from the Sprint store, i would have to pay taxes on $350 rather than $250). If it is sold out at the local Radio Shack, there are several BB's and RS's along the way to the Sprint store where I have my preorder waiting for me.
I reserved mine at Radio Shack last week after I got paid. I preordered an Evo back when it was coming out, but it died a week after I got it. The past three months without a smart phone have been tough.
I didn't preorder, I plan to steal one away from some one who did
I can't preorder because a)I'm on a corporate plan and have to order through my rep, and b)I'm exchanging the Evo out, which complicates matters more.
So my rep will order it for me first thing on the 31st!
I prefer to wait and see how the phone does. While I trust that any issues will be fixed by Samsung in the end, I just want to know exactly what this phone is like once the general public has it. That and if iPods and people whining about different color temp screens have taught me anything, the first week or 2 of any tech tends to be the most inconsistent poor quality batches. Hopefully a week or 2 after the phone is out, all potential software shortcomings will have a workaround or be shown to not matter much in real life application, and just how good or bad the gps is en masse will be known.
I have one preordered... but I have a question... I have an iphone now... and I will be canceling in the middle of my billing cycle... will I have to pay for the full month for AT&T or will they pro rate my bill?
You might be better off asking that in the AT&T forum.
