What does someone have to do to get this phone
Ok I will admit I have only been trying to get the EVO for 2 days now as my upgrade came do on July 1st but I'm already frustrated and here's why.
I have been trying to get it from Best Buy since they have the instant rebate and a better insurance program than Sprint. So the first i simply just called every Best Buy in my area no one has any in stock I expected that really.
Now today I get off work a 3pm and start my calls the 3rd one I call in Ellisville tells me they have some in stock and that it was a first come first serve basis and they were not allowed to tell me how many they have I'm like cool so I head over there and the first they they ask me is am I on there list now I was already told previously that they are not doing list so I was more than pissed driving out there for nothing.
So I go back to my car after saying a few choice words to the mobile reps and start calling more Best Buys well of course no one has any at all but another one tells me that if I come in they will put me on there list and then they would call me when they come in well that one was closer to my house so the drive was not an issue so I go there and am told now that they are not doing a list so if your not doing a list why was I told you were on the phone again pissed but i was kinda expected I suppose anyway I'm still stuck with my Pre and no idea of when I will get an EVO oh I went to dinner and was near another Best Buy the one I would most want to get one from as they were the most helpful they told me that not only does there system not show any EVO's in stock but it also shows none on the way to any store in my area.
Well that's my sad story like I said before I have only been trying for the past 2 days and I'm sure I have a long road ahead before I can get one but I will not give up until I can truly join the android crowd heck I even thought of calling HTC directly like that would do any good huh.

I've tried every Sprint, Radio Shack & Best Buy in this area, All of them are saying their is between a 2 and a 4 week back-order on evos.
I'm desperate to get rid of AT&T and their joke of a network.
Currently 60/40 EVO Droid X atm so i'm tempted just to try for a x at this stage.

I just kept checking Sprint's website. I found one a few weeks ago on a Saturday, ordered it and had it in my hands on a Monday. I was being made fun of by some users on this site, saying they would never order through Sprint's site because "they wanted it now" but those same users are still looking for one, while I am enjoying my Evo
The moral of the story is just keep checking Sprint's site, and the moment you see it as available order dat s**t!!
I'm holding out for an EVO I don't care how long it takes I'm tired of Palm promising big things only to be disappointed once again it's been a year now and and there are only 2714 apps int the App Catalog and the last I heard palm has had flash for almost 2 weeks now why has it not been released into the app store yet I'm sick and tired of going to a web page only to see you need the latest version of flash to view this site.

One question though if I order it online from Best Buy can I still get there Black Tie insurance and if so do I add it while purchasing it online or do I have to go to the store and do that? I have Sprints TEP now so I will have to cancel that once I get the EVO.

My son got one on opening day in nyc, I watied till that monday then went to Sprint store and the guy told me it is sold out, but i made friends with him cause 2 weeks before i got 9650 BB for work, so he said he call me, and i waited a week and he showed me the waiting list but i skipped to the head of the line and got 2 of them. Just keep looking on Sprint site.

I live in a rural area and called every Radioshack within 50 miles, the last one that I was going to call actually had 3 of them in stock and said that they knew of other radioshacks that had them as well, this was 2 weeks ago, but still, if you are willing to drive out into BFE you might just get lucky... people in my town don't even know what an EVO is... lol

If you are worried about it I would contact Sprint directly and ask them. Only they can tell you what to expect with your account and credit.
