    I know some folks have mentioned that they have appointments scheduled at Best Buy on Friday to come pick up their pre-order. I haven't heard anything from the store I pre-ordered at yet. I called on Monday to see when they'd be doing it and was told maybe late Tuesday. Others on the boards here have mentioned that they weren't expecting calls until Thursday. Just wondering how many people have gotten calls and how many are still waiting like me.

    I'm going to try holding off on calling until tomorrow (Thursday). I'm very, very eager for the phone, but don't want to be "that guy". (If I don't get a phone on Friday, however, all aversion to being "that guy" goes out the window and I will go into full blown nerd rage ).

    They called me to set up an appointment, so I've got that for Friday. I asked if I could just come in tomorrow and she laughed, saying they couldn't sell till Friday anyway. I tried.

    But I'll be going during the day to the Sprint store downtown that told me they couldn't do preorders. It'll be easier to deal with since I'll have my kid after work, so hopefully I can get it done in a sprint store

    Pre ordered my original evo and the 3D from the same best buy here in Brooklyn. Someone called me yesterday to setup an appointment for Friday morning. They're actually opening two hours early for launch day this year, which they didn't do last year. Guess they're expecting an Evo related bump in customers.

    I pre-ordered from BB too and instead of waiting I just called them yesterday and asked if I could set up an appt. I set mine for Friday at 5pm since I get off of work at 4pm. Kind of strange though that they didn't call at all. I didn't even get the sense from the guy I talked to that the were ever going to call. Oh well, I'll have mine Friday

    I did my pre-order from a Sprint store. Still waiting for my call. Kind of though for me to set an exact time. Being I'm driving truck overnights. Be great if i could get it Fri morning and take it to Cleveland area with me. Test the signal between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Especially since both cities have 4G.

    Maybe I'll just try and pop in the store Fri morning whenever I get done.

    Paul.

    Edit: Just did a store search. My store shows early hours opening. at 8am

    Whoa.....and you pre-ordered from BB right? Not cool that it would be first come first serve even if you put your $50 down to make sure you get one. Not cool at all.

    Yes BB, but when I first walked in, I asked it they had any cases available since I received my phone today, and him not knowing that I had the phone asked if I was buying the phone from them on fri and if I would like to pre-order it. But he also said if you pre-ordered one you are guaranteed the phone, just not doing appointments.

    I pre-ordered mine this past saturday, and they told me i should be getting a call by tomorrow about picking up my Evo 3D.

    The only problem i have is when i preordered it they ran out of those Evo 3D preorder forms to fill out and just rang me up for the $50 preorder charge, and took down my name and number to be reached at. My luck, some how they won't remember to give me a call, or even preorder the phone for me. Just have to wait and see.

    I got a call from BB at about 5pm yesterday. Scheduled for 9am. I took the day off from work so I would have ample time to play with it and get used to Android as I am coming from a Palm. Can't wait to take pics and vids of my dogs in 3D!!!

    I went in last night and asked about the appts, and I was told that they would be calling everyone today to set them up, ... still waiting on phone call -- really want it to be first thing in the morning.
