So, I called three stores. First store the guy said that "The Shack" DOES NOT do pre-orders for phones. Store number two had absolutely no clue what I was even talking about and store three said that the phone was coming out in July and that I should call sprint about pre-orders. GMAFB!!!

The leaked screenshot tells you exactly where to look for info. I know it won't help us any, but if you talk to "The Shack" you can tell them exactly where to look to find info.
PPCGeeks.com » The SHACK to have EVO Preorders This Month!
It says to "look on Answers Online under Products > Product Reference Sheets > Wireless > Sprint"
Anyone who talks to "The Shack" and gets an employee who doesn't know what you're talking about should direct them there.

I live in the east valley in Az and after just calling almost 10 "shack" stores I got a guy on the phone that claims he has been digging for info just as much as anybody else has. I asked if he had any info on the phone that's more than what is displayed on their site and he did say that the corporate guy that comes in is really kool and told him there won't be any play models for any specialist employees in any of the stores out this way like the sightings posted in Florida or Iowa. So he's obviously been following closely because that's more or less something we've read on the forums and the average Joe wouldn't know about. He also said the memo sent out was telling people not to give further info when they do receive it... But his corporate guy said they were leaning towards the 199.00 price for new customers including instant rebate in store and that the phone will do simultaneous data/voice on 4g ONLY. I know this isn't the specific post for this but this is the "extensive" info he knew.He took down my name n number(like most stores are doing) but said he would call or text from his phone as soon as he found anything more. I don't know the guy and neither do you but this is what I was told, so take it with a grain of... What's that stuff called?
