    Default Sprint opening early ?

    Can anyone confirm if sprint is opening at 8am of June 4th for the EVO launch ? I went to my local sprint store today and they weren't sure. They said their schedule had not been posted yet...

    Just a rumor I heard trying to get some conformation on.... I believe they did open @ 8am last year for the pre launch

    There has been no official word from Sprint. My guess is they will open at their normal scheduled time.

    I called my sprint store and they said that it would be open at 8 in the morning on the 4th of June.

    They did open early for the Pre, 8am, but for whatever reason they were very secretive about it and didn't announce it until a few days before launch.

    yes. They are. I won't post the email I have from my Sprint store rep that takes care of me to preserve their, but Premier customers are welcome at 8am on the 4th. (Basically, anyone is....I bet they just email Premier customers a few days early to make them feel special)

    Sprint will probably notify Premier customers in the next week, that is what they did about the PRE. They also had a soft opening/sale for select Premier customers.

    The sprint store by my house opened at 8 am for the Pre, and it was for all customers, not just Premier customers.

    I think it may be personally up to the store. Thats what the guys at my store make it seem like.

    my local Sprint retail store sales staff is awful. mostly lazy unprofessional staff who act like you are bothering them when you have a question or want to try to buy something.

    Technically they are not supposed to say if they have extended hours as premier customers that preregister online will be informed of that fact via email. They don't want to feel like they a lying to you though so they will just seem vague and stupid when you ask.

    My Radioshack says they'll be open at 8... but I think thats the usual opening time for Radioshack.

    I was in a store yesterday, and they said they weren't sure if they were opening @ 8am but thought they would cause they did for the pre.

    I also emailed dan@sprint.com and a rep called me and stated she called a few stores for me (nice huh ?) and that they still weren't sure. So I still don't have any SOLID conformation, it would be nice though seeing as the sprint stores open @ 10am and I gotta be at work @ 9am.... but for the evo I could always have a " Doctors Appointment" hehe

    My sprint store told me that their schedule hasn't been posted so they don't know, I will call Thursday before the release to double check

    Well, you would think they would know their schedules 10 days in advance...

    More than likely, like someone here stated, premier customers will get an email a few days before inviting them in @ 8am

    I checked the two local store near me and they said 8, but what time should one expect to be able to get one?

    hey guys, just went to my local sprint store to chat with the reps and get on their good side before launch, and the said that they will be opening a hour early that day.
    He also told me that during their training, they were told froyo will be coming to evo a few weeks after release!

    While I am hopeful that FroYo is coming to the Evo (officially) sooner than Eclair did for the Hero/Moment, I wouldn't put a ton of stock into the notion.

    THAT BEING SAID, I've heard the same by Sprint Evo advocates. Which leads me to believe it is DEF being said in those training sessions... whether the timetable holds up is TBD.

    Froyo has to actually come out first before they can provide an update to it. Keep in mind that Froyo is not actually publically available. All the Froyo stuff with the Nexus One is hacked ROMs from a beta.
