I don't know what to do about the update
Well I am yet to get my HTC EVO but the store said they should have some today and so that got me thinking about if i should wait until August 3rd when Froyo is released.
So i'm wondering if i should go ahead and setup everything and download all the apps i want because i'm not sure if everything is gonna be deleted when i update to Froyo on Tuesday or should i just wait until Tuesday like be phoneless until Tuesday and then on Tuesday setup
But will the Froyo update delete all apps and settings?
Just want to say that for sure im getting it but im wondering if i should setup or not

Everything I have read says it will not erase your settings. So if I were you, and they have some EVO's available now, I would go get it. From what I understand there is a shortage of EVO's & it is only going to get worse until they get the screen supplies fixed. Wouldn't you kick yourself if you waited & then went in on the 3rd & they tell you, "sorry just sold the last one & don't know when we will be getting more?"

Froyo shouldn't delete everything - no one would upgrade if it did - and to make app reloading easy, load AppBrain and Fast Web Install and then you'll have a list of everything you've got. Then, even if Froyo nuked your phone, you'll be able to reconstitute your app load off the AppBrain list."The Nexus 4 is such a big black slab of power that if you dropped it down in the middle of a pack of monkeys, they'd start using weapons." - Dirk Belligerent.

My suggestion is to buy it now. I have a low degree of confidence in the ability of any retail people to assist you for any upgrade idiosyncrasies anyway. By waiting until Tuesday, you don't gain any additional value.

Run, don't walk. Get the phone.
The only thing that might happen is that some of your widgets in your HTC Sense screens may need to be re-installed. They won't be deleted from the phone, but you might have to place some of them back on the pages.
This happened to me with the last OTA update. Not a big deal. Just make note of what widgets you have loaded or don't customize Sense too much before the 2.2 update.

Good LORD!!! You found an EVO that hasnt been refurb'd or returned? Frickin buy it NOW! First download should be for AppBrain. Then download all the apps you want, and sync with AppBrain. The update will have no effect on your apps this way once u sync up after Froyo.

I just loaded the leaked one that's in the stickied thread and nothing got deleted, but the Marketplace Downloads menu only had one program listed, while AppBrain had everything."The Nexus 4 is such a big black slab of power that if you dropped it down in the middle of a pack of monkeys, they'd start using weapons." - Dirk Belligerent.
