    Default Best buy or Sprint for pre order?

    So i pre ordered at Best Buy on April 2nd i was the first one to pre order! Now i am having second thoughts though.. I have seen people saying that best buy doesnt get things on launch day sometimes and i really want this phone on the 19th! And i have heard that Sprint usually delivers the pre orders a day early which would be nice as it goes straight to my house and i wouldnt have to work that day so i could use the phone.. BUT best buy has a better insurance plan so im not sure which one is better. If i go sprint and they deliver a day early i can get it on my day off but if i go Best Buy i could pick it up from my work on that same day. Any positive/negative experiences from either option?

    That extra days will come and go and won't be a big deal in the long run, but having the better coverage could save you hundreds if something goes wrong. Wait and get it from BB.

    Thats what i was going to go with. And the lady at BB said i was the frist pre order in so i should be prettymuch guaranteed to have a device on launch day and then ill have all night to work with it.

    I am surprised for Sprint, the option of getting it with Radio Shack is not an Option. From their special I am surprised that it is not one of the first thoughts. Though I am just speaking from my knowledge of what I have seen online, I have never dealt with Radio Shack Prior and I would think that they should get it launch day, unless someone else have had experience with when radio shack gets their phones. I am holding off with getting it from sprint, since hey a $50 dollar gift card for play store can come in handy for some needed apps.

    BB usually had pretty good promotions with their launches (free goodies, high trade-in values for your old phone), but I don't see anything with the One release...only Radio Shack seems to have a promotion

    With the HTC EVO 4G LTE Customs fiasco, BB was the first store to receive the released stock and I remember getting my phone probably about a week before any Sprint corporate store got it.

    I've had insurance through both BB and Sprint, but have never used BB insurance, so I can't tell which one is better. On paper, BB insurance seems to be the better deal, although I know depending on the corporate store, they would treat you pretty well with Sprint insurance.

    I used to get my families phones @ the corporate store. The Asurian $100 deductible and 2 claims is horrible compared to the $0 deductible and unlimited claims @ BB. Also the customer service, at least at my BB, is great. Pre-ordered mine yesterday.

    As much as the Radio Shack promo really sounded enticing, I decided to purchase the One from BB along with a digital camera I have had my eye on. By combining the two I was able to put it on my BB credit card and now have 18 months to pay it off. Being able to spread out the payment is a big plus for me.

    Same here I got my EVO 4G LTE from BB before even the Sprint stores got there's plus if your a member of phone freedom you save 50 bucks. I got the EVO last eyar from BB for 99 bucks. I am trying to sell it now so I can pay Sprint to upgrade early cause I am not due for upgrade till January. But I may just wait it out cause everyone is saying the HTC One - Plus or something will be out next LOL! If I can sell my phone and accessories I will get this phone it's gonna be nice and I will go with BB cause I'll get it for 150..

    That deal look real good except they don't cover loss or theft so that's a no go.
