    Not sure if anyone have asked this yet, but can we use the $10 RS coupon from taking the survey (www.tellradioshack.com) on the day of pickup the order?
    Thanks!

    Not exactly sure this is possible, but with the $10 from the survey and the $20 accessory credit, you could walk out with $40 worth in accessories for $10.

    Really awesome that you're doing this. Now, here's my question (it might be long winded, sorry).

    My girlfriend and I are switching from VZW to Sprint. She's a BlackBerry gal, and I want the EVO. We can't just go in on the 4th to start service because she'll be in Florida for 10 days, and we'd both like to have a means of talking while she's there, so we'd like to start service with Sprint before she goes. My question is this. Can I open up a share plan with 2 lines today, so she can get her Bold, and I just wait for my phone to come in on the 4th? I doubt it's possible, but I figured I'd check.

    Another small question. We're both thinking maybe we'll just sign up for our own single line plans, that way she can have a phone while she's away. And if we did this, I'd preorder the EVO today or tomorrow, and then pick it up on the 4th. Now, when she got back, would we be able to join our 2 single line plans into a 2 line share plan?

    Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is confusing.

    Thats exactly what I did, when start to setup a sprint account they will tell you the amount of lines that you are approved for. Then you just call in to start another line.

    I am using the free Palm Pixi while waiting for the Evo. When the Evo comes in I will give it (THE PIXI) to my mother.

    Also, I am also coming from a blackberry (Have them both sitting in front of my keyboard and I like the Pixi alot more... the keyboard is better IMHO, the only thing missing is the voice dialing (missing from android too).

    But you couldn't preorder the EVO could you? Are you just going to go in, and just exchange the phones and pay the difference, as part of the 30 day trial period thing? I know I could just try to get there early enough on the 4th to exchange, but having an actual preorder would make me feel safer.

    I ordered the Pixi via telesales day of EVO launch party, before pre-orders were taken.

    I pre-ordered the Evo at the Shack for the second line, however I can take the Pixi in to sprint and exchange it for the evo (if any are available) if I desired to. When I get it, they are to convert my everything data plan, to a everything data family plan. To tell the truth I am not going to pay $10 X 2 knowing that she will use about 1.00 MB of data per month... so mom gets the PIXI or a Pre.

    From all my conversations, and from what I have read, when you sign up for sprint they will tell you how many lines you are approved for, and you are able to add up to that limit at anytime. YMMV

    P.S. They didn't run a score during the preorder and didn't ask for my Acct #.

    Android has Voice Dialing (At least my Moment does) but not sure if other android devices do

    That's right, Android has voice dialing, but IIRC it isn't 100% Bluetooth initiated (Still have to touch the screen).

    Thanks for answering the questions . I really need to get to my closest RS and pre-order the Evo . I have a store nearby on a plaza , that not many people visit . So far they have about 4 or 5 pre-oders total . Going to be an easy transaction . Also , i hope RS will have silicone case for Evo at launch . would like some extra protection right off the bat .

    I was eligible for my Sprint upgrade and went to my local RS after reading this thread to pre-order the EVO. The process was quick and up front. Just completed the survey for the $10 coupon.

    Thanks - think this device is going to light years ahead of my old, but reliable 800w.

    Is RS offering a one year contract price?

    Also how much is the two year service plan ?

    Sorry if these have been answered I searched the thread and didn't see it.

    1. No

    2. It should be 124.99 (unless they change the price for the evo)

    Shack POS systems can (and most def will) deny SKU's to be sold until certain dates.

    They do this from time to time on sensitive items.

    Radioshack would never risk breaching contract with sprint (largest wireless carrier in these parts) by releasing early. And the computers will not allow such things to happen.

    Sprint too can disallow ESN's from being activated early. (Same way they can say certain plan types are not allowed on the EVO)

    I've gone to the two RS's that are in my area. Neither had any idea what I was talking about. This is the first time I've tried to preorder from a third-party retailer. Is this normal?

    It makes me think twice about doing a preorder.

    First you need to make sure its a Corporate Radioshack. Franchise stores just give us a bad name at times.

    Second make sure they actually sell Sprint. (Not all do)

    Third, if you're at this part and they dont know what you're talking about.. well.. they need fired. That simple. No excuses at that point. Those stores are losing big time dollars, the employees are losing comission opportunities and they are hurting Radioshacks image. (fragile thing as it is)

    Not sure if they were corporate stores; but, they both sold Sprint. As for no excuses - especially with a rollout as anticipated as this - I agree completely. They were clueless about RS's cell biz in general.

    No, no. Your misunderstanding the wording on the coupon. When it says phone orders, it means orders placed by phone call. Not phone purchases. I use $10 off coupons all the time on phone sales, I used one today.
