    Ugh!
    I have tried everything and everywhere and can't get one!
    Got on a waiting list at one sprint store...but they can't tell me WHERE on the list I am??
    Have called every other sprint store near me...some say they are don't have them and aren't allowed to do waiting lists.
    One store told me they have them...but you can only get one if you are on their waiting list which is >200 people.
    None of the Best Buys have them here.
    While at the mall yesterday I stopped by the sprint kiosk. The girl told me they would be getting some between 1 and 2:00 today. She said they didn't have a waiting list, but took my # and said she would call me as soon as they arrive.
    So, today at 1:00 sharp as I was picking my daughter up from camp I called them. They said they were waiting for them to arrive. I headed straight there (arriving about 1:15). When I got there they said they were SOLD OUT! The thing that really ticked me off is that one of the guys that got one said the reason he did was because he was on the WAITING LIST! WTH???
    Why would the girl tell me there is no waiting list...and there IS???? And, to add fuel to the fire....the same girl was there and said she didn't remember me or remember telling me that...are you KIDDING??? It was just yesterday!
    It's not so much that I am mad I didn't get one (although I am not happy about it)....it's that she had me shlep up there (with a cranky 3 year old) for NO REASON .
    Every store and place are doing things differently and it's completely frustrating. Meanwhile my BB Curve is driving me nuts.
    I am tempted to just go get an iphone.....but that's really not what I want.
    Sorry to rant....just FRUSTRATED

    Woohoo!!!!!!!!
    Got my Evo...see my update post #31

    Wallmart carries them as well. Keep trying different stores, I would recommend calling.

    Definitely keep trying man...the phone's definitely worth the wait and it keeps getting better all the time between htc updates and the xda development... It definitely is the best phone I have ever had and this from a guy who went through new phones every six months!

    I called 7 different stores for a week and a half to find one. I also got lucky and found one at sprint.com before they sold out again.

    Hate to sound even more annoying...but I saw the white on end REALLY did not care for it (just my opinion though).

    When I went to purchase a second EVO after my wife took the first one, I ran into similar problems. I was able to get one at the mall from those little cell phone stands you see in the malls. The purchase was easy and I walked away with the EVO fully activated and with the phone number ported from my old blackberry.

    Might be worth a look.

    Same here, I hate the oreo look they have going on. Which is why I want to do this. It's a lot of work, but I want my new toy.

    Stupidly, it's only white on the back. The front of the device is still black.

    With a black case on, your Evo will pretty much be black. Or you can get Seidio's 3500 extended battery which comes with the black battery cover.

    Call sprint account services, ask them to order you one, they will. If they say they can't, hang up and call back or ask for retentions. I promise they will get you your evo

    If all else fails, try Wirefly.com. You will have a 2 to 3 week wait, but at the rate you're going now, that just might be worth it.

    Give it a whirl!
