    Just jumped on to post the same thing... I went from back-ordered to "Thanks for pre-ordering. A shiny new HTC EVO 4G LTE is waiting for you in our warehouse. Shipping starts May 15th and we will send you an email the second it ships."

    Sweet.

    I just got off the phone with Sprint sales because I needed to have my eligibility date moved up due to a cracked Evo 3D screen. They told me the phone would ship on 5/16 for all pre-orders.

    If that date is true, Sprint is even keeping stores in the dark. May 18 layouts were issued and no mention of the E4GLTE, plus seed devices have not hit stores. If it is dropping on the 18th, they need to get those seeds out.

    To triple-confirm this (or whatever), here's a paste from my online text chat with Sprint:

    "Thanks for pre-ordering a new HTC EVO 4G LTE. Our records show that your order is processing smoothly at the warehouse awaiting your item for shipment. Shipping starts May 15th and we will send you an email the second it ships to the email address we have on file. Delivery should occur within 1 to 3 business days thereafter. Please feel free to check back in 24 hours or visit Sprint | Check Your Order Status to follow the status of your order."

    Well since they charged our credit cards already I was sure they had them in stock. Most reputable places don't charge you until they ship items. If they ship it on the 15th, I'll probably miss it as I'm leaving on a trip the next morning. Have to get them to leave it with the neighbor.

    Not so sure the 5/15 date is actually confirmed or not. Let me say I WANT it to be then and the two that I ordered say the same thing, but it says they "start" then. Technically they probably only have to ship one phone on the 15th to meet that goal.

    I guess I still don't understand the waiting to announce an official date. Is it that they have 200,000 units sitting in a warehouse and they want to know how many are claimed on pre-orders before they decided how many to release to stores and retailers?

    And so it begins :-(

    My two phones that were showing a shipping date of 5/15, are now showing this:

    Your order or a portion of your order is in backorder status. If you would like to select an alternate product or cancel your backordered item, please call 866-789-8292 between 8:00 a.m. EST to 11:00 p.m. EST Monday to Friday or 9:00 a.m. EST to 9:00 p.m. EST on Saturdays and Sundays.Please note that cancellation requests may not always process successfully due to the speed of warehouse processing.If you cancelled your backordered item but still received a shipment, please refuse the shipment or call us to process a return within 14 days of receipt.
    Maybe S4GRU has been right all along with the June 10th date. If true, this really ticks me off.

    Same here, but my order status never said anything about the 15th, it started out with this status

    The web status of my order also had the May 15th date this morning, but I now get the following:

    Your order or a portion of your order is in backorder status. If you would like to select an alternate product or cancel your backordered item, please call 866-789-8292 between 8:00 a.m. EST to 11:00 p.m. EST Monday to Friday or 9:00 a.m. EST to 9:00 p.m. EST on Saturdays and Sundays.Please note that cancellation requests may not always process successfully due to the speed of warehouse processing.If you cancelled your backordered item but still received a shipment, please refuse the shipment or call us to process a return within 14 days of receipt.
    Is it possible that the May 15th message was programmed in before the LTE problems were discovered, and that they've replaced it with the backorder message? Or did my order get in too late and the first round of phones are already spoken for (I ordered within 20 minutes of the phone being available)?

    Does anyone still have the May 15th message in their order status?

    Mine still showing back ordered. That customer service chat came up and said this:

    Mike: We'll do our best to get it to you on or before the national launch. During the
    pre-order period, we will send you a shipping email and tracking number.
    Mike: I would recommend checking back in 24 hours for updates on shipment information.
    Mike: You can check your order status at Sprint | Check Your Order Status. Once your order ships, your tracking information will be available here and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.

    I just ordered at Best Buy. My paperwork states a 5/18 arrival date so I would guess that 5/18 is the official release date... That would also go along with the 5/15 ship dates you're seeing.

    Mine showed the "shipping begins 5/15 message", but now it's back to the "backorder" message.

    My status changed too. According to Sprint...

    This message in regards to May 15 was a glitch and was not the correct status. The backorder status is the standard order status for pre-orders.

    At this time we currently do not have a release date for the device, during the order process there was a message in regards to keeping the launch date under wraps a little while longer. We will send you a notification upon announcement of the release date. We will not know until the announcement of the release date.
