    Unfortunately, I won't have my hands on that baby on the 4th, but a few days after. Its because I am ordering over the phone. I already have a personal Sprint representative who is giving me very nice discounts.

    Anyone else joining the campout ? I've decided to just go ahead and do it !

    Based on if their opening at 8am or not will determine what time me and the crew will be arriving.... im guessing 5am if their opening at 8am. if 10am, we'll prolly get there around 7am

    Just an observation, but as an iPhone 3GS user who is very interested in trying the new EVO on launch day, I find it amusing how many people feel the need to put down iPhone users. To quote Oscar Wilde, "There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."

    An iPhone is all hype, Honestly I know about 10 people who have them and only got them cause they were the "In thing" Apple and people glorify it to be the best smartphone device ever. And its not. Yea 85 million people bought one around the world, doesnt mean its the best. Palm WebOS is a million times better of a UI and experience than an iPhone.

    The iPhone is so locked down its ridiculous. Its YOUR device, why is apple telling you how and what you can have on YOUR device ?

    For the average consumer they could care less and are blind to the fact cause they get to walk around with their friends and "be cool"

    I could go on for days, but another device to come out that continues to let people know their are better choices out there is a win.

    My Device, I'll put whatever I want on it, root it if I want, tether if I want, put any app on it I want without apples approval, etc.. All without having to "jailbreak" it from factory....

    WebOS and Android are the most customizable phones on the market.

    I pre-ordered from BB. I never buy from Sprint any more. The one and only time I did that I ordered 3 new phones for my family and they sent me 9 and it took months to get my account straightened out. Since then I buy from BB and have never had a problem.

    Weather is the one thing possibly putting a hitch in my plan. By no means will it stop me from camping out but the forcast being filled with rain isn't any fun either. At the Pre launch which was July I believe? It was well below average temps here and was very cold but rain could be even worse.

    There is no need to camp. Sprint and HTC ordered large supplies of the phones and now that Sprint has the added $10 Evo tax demand will be very modest for a phone of this caliber.

    Order online. Stop in a store at lunch. Wait until after work.

    No rush.

    Ill bet my EVO they will be sold out of EVERY major location before cob on the 4th?

    and yes i will fly to where you are to take yours off your hands if u are up for a friendly wager?

    I'll be camping out simply because I don't trust the all to easy line "ohh yeaaa, we'll have plenty so no need to come early or worry" .. quite the opposite too many times in my experience..

    No. I will not camp out for a phone. I can wait a week or two for the furor to die down.

    Camping out for a phone is so Apple, should have just pre-ordered!

    A lot of people preordered the iPhone 3GS, keeping many lines very short.

    dude, I camped out for the Pre... Not worth it. Save yourself the headache. It'll be worse than dealing with pre-order.

    Concert tickets deserves camping out status, a phone; not so much IMHO

    Seems like a lot of haters towards camping out.. Considering this was a thread asking "Who is camping out?" not "Who thinks people should pre order instead of camping out"?

    I personally don't have a best buy mobile within 100miles of where I live or a radioshack I would go to. Let alone the fact that the full retail price is higher at radioshack and Bestbuy it kind of takes the preorder idea straight out possibility for me.

    My first "campout" was for the Pre, I have had many friends over the years campout for either the iPhone, PS3, 360 or other release devices and they all talked about the buzz surrounding the event the night before as you wait outside with other game or tech junkies waiting in anticipation and equally as crazy as you are.

    I had a blast camping for the Pre, I met a bunch of awesome people and I was mid way through a line that stretched beyond what I thought was possible. I remember thinking "All these people came out of this city just for this phone?" i was astounded at the fact that people knew about it ahead of launch and decided to camp.

    To each their own and like I have said before, I will be happily camping for the evo this time coming more prepared with a chair, something I seemed to forget on the Pre launch.

    My girlfriend and I got out of our movie around 2am maybe? We probably got there around 3am and were number 9 in line? Probably do the same this time, movie at midnight, sometime after end up in line.

    I camped out for Christmas tickets to the White house a couple years ago.
    Drove 4 hours and waited for 5hours and was still 260th in line. Lots of fun though.
    Got to BB for my Pre about an hour 45 minutes early IIRC and got the last spot, there was only 4 available.
    There was people minutes behind me, so I got "lucky". That was fun too.

    I'm #1 on the Pre order list at BB but I may show up a few minutes early to see if anybody's camping out and have some fun before I get the Evo.
