    That's awesome, I haven't gotten any such thing and am hoping my local RS isn't doing that to my EVOs... I doubt it as they said they're first come, first serve. I'm trying to avoid the wait at the Sprint store and the later start to the day post-Evo, but if I end up in NJ tracing one of these things down, so be it!

    i just called a sprint retail store not sprint store. And the guy said would you like to be on the list for an EVO i was like uhhh ya! He said ok i have 20 EVOs and the first 20 on the list i will hold for you if your here at 8 am sharply! If you are one of 20 and here at 802am no EVO for you. "I'll give it to the first guy to show up who is not on the list. So cool guess im am getting an EVO 2mro and only have to get up at 7:30 sounds good to me!

    That's a great idea, I didn't think of the resellers, but might as well make some calls...

    I preordered mine from RS..was waiting for my call tonight like they said the would, never did. So I called, and they said they 'think' the Evos should arrive by 11 AM tomorrow. So theres a chance they might not?? I'm going to flip out if I don't get my phone tomorrow!!

    Oh yea, I'm new, coming from the Pre!!

    Radioshack sucks!!!
    I tried to pre order one at my local RadioShack on 5/31 and they said no more, but there would be 3 up for grabs when they open up at 9am. I just called (thurs afternoon) to verify and this is what was said

    Employee: "Thanks you for calling RadioShack, home of the HTC EVO 4g. (Is this a jokethey are only getting 3!??)

    Me: "Hi, I came in Monday I was told you guys have 5 HTC EVOs coming in tomorrow, with 2 pre ordered and 3 more as first-come-first-serve. I just wanted to make sure this was still true."

    Employee: "We only have 3 coming and 2 are pre ordered. I don't know who told you we have 5 because we don't and I'm the manager so I know!! And all our phones are spoken for!!" (I was surprised that he sounded angry at, since I'm not the employee that gave false info)

    Me: "I was told you guys stopped pre orders after 2. And you would have 3 more as first-come-first-serve."

    Employee: "yes we only did 2 pre orders."

    Me: "so you do have some that are not pre ordered??"

    Employee: "yes we have some that are first-come-first-serve. You can come down first thing tomorrow." (I thought it was odd he
    said some since he just said there was only one)

    Me: "ok great, so if I'm the first one there when you open I'll get a phone."

    Employee: "no you wont...all our phones are sold!!" (Why did he just tell me to come down if he wont sell me a phone??)

    Me: "I don't understand, you just said you have some for first-come-first-serve."

    Employee: "yes those are sold. All our phones are sold! If you want one we can order one for you."

    At this point I hung up out of frustration.
    I'm I missing something?!?!? F RadioShack. I'll never be shopping there again...not that I ever did.

    Not trying to stir the pot but you should have pre-ordered prior to the 31st. No RS or BB is going to hold a first come first serve phone, that would defeat the purpose. Just take the hit, go to the sprint store and buy it with the MIR

    I had a good experience at my RS today. I was a bit nervous with reading the posts here that RS was letting people "speak for phones" even without pre-ordering them.
