    Maybe no one knows, but lets say I put down a preorder (with $50), and decide against it, can I do anything like use that $50 gift card towards my monthly bill?

    I called 3 different sprint stores in my Area in Taylor, MI and Toledo, OH and none of them knew anything about the pre-orders?? I am so confused.

    Yes you could do that or buy anything within the store with the giftcard

    I preordered at BB on 5/18. I was 13th on the list. The guy that helped me was there last year when I got my Evo and he said they were expecting a similar turn out it not more than last year. He got a call about preordering while I was sitting there giving him my info. It sounds like word is getting around to the non-forum geeks.

    Does sprint still have instant rebates? I think they did for a limited time, just not sure if they still do?

    I dropped into my local corporate Sprint store tonite and was denied a pre-order on the EVO 3D. The sales guy also said he had zero idea of a launch date, "Yo, man... They don't tell us nothing around here."

    thats the same business i got from my local best buy and sprint store, but they told me that the nexus s 4g is THE phone to get right now...i'm sure they mean well, but makes me weary of anything that comes out of their mouths.

    Ya, the closest Sprint store to me said they weren't talking pre-orders; i should have called them liars. I bet the employees trying to hold onto the first shipment for themselves (my friend that works at gamestop does the same thing). for what its worth they said they thought the launch date was June 6th

    Well that's at least a different date than any other I've heard speculated :-p 3rd, 4th, 10th, 19th, 21st, and then all the July dates. lol

    How long will they be taking pre orders and are you allowed to pre order for off contract use at RS or Sprint? Sprint is working on reinstating my gold status and I won't know the status until the June 1st. I've been with them for 11yrs so its their f-up.

    you should be able to preorder no matter what, i doubt they care if you pay full retail or if you are upgrading/new account

    Just pre-ordered at Sprint and he told me they didn't have a date but it should be the second or third week in June and would probably be a Sunday. For whatever this is worth.

    Just did my preorder today at my local sprint store. They had almost no information, but they took my $50 in exchange for a gift card and receipt with a handwritten "confirmation" number. They also called it a "waitlist" not preorder and took down my email and phone number. They really had no idea on what the process was or when it was going to come out.

    When I pre ordered... they gave me a reciept with "Sprint girft card" or something like that on it... nothing stating the pre-order of the phone.

    I thought it was kinda strange that it would note no details in their system... They took my phone number and name down... I hope they did it right, waiting so long and then I can't get one release date would just put me over the edge!

    I'm finally going to preorder today. I was debating between Sprint and Radioshack, but I'll go with sprint for repairs and replacements. Also reading this this thread Having Evo Issues? Sprint will exchange!! - xda-developers helped me decide.

    Just because you buy it at Radio Shack doesn't mean you're screwed when something happens to the phone. Last year when the infamous "double update" fiasco bricked a few phones, including one of my friends, I went to Radio Shack, they called the right people, and we were able to go to a Sprint store and have it replaced without any problems.

    Oh wow that's what I was wondering. I just didn't want to be stuck with a defective phone. I think I will still go with Sprint though since I will most likely end up going there any way if something goes wrong.
