Never gonna get an Evo :( UPDATE-Got an Evo!!
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
Got my Evo...see my update post #31

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!

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.
