    had mine at 10:00am...was too busy playing with it to post till now
    I can SO relate to that. I was the first pre-order at my local BB. When the called to schedule the appointment, I chose the first slot available, 8:00 am. As soon as Sprint announced the launch date, I scheduled the day off from work. I've been playing with the phone and loading apps ALL DAY.

    I am really glad I got the early appointment. I stopped by work and was showing my co-workers the new toy. One of them was scheduled for a 12:30 appointment at BB. So, I rode with him. By then, the Sprint system was so overwhelmed with people activating that his appointment took 2 hours!

    But holy carp! This phone is so FRAKKIN' worth it!!

    Had mine in hand at 9 30 am from the Sprint store...after chewing out best buy at my 6 30 am appointment for being lying weasels and not price matching sprints price to buy the phone outright after assuring me a bunch of times that they would..

    Got mine today after a 2.5 hour process at Best Buy. First both of their activation systems were slowing to a crawl and would cease to work before the activation. Then they attempted to activate over the phone but were unable to get through to the NSS line for quite some time. Even showed up for my appointment 30 minutes early...

    kvaughan, sounds like we had the same scenario.

    I showed up for my 10am appointment only to find the 8:30 guys were just sitting down! o_O !!

    Since I'm porting over my number from a VOIP service, my Sprint access isn't up yet, but I've already been molesting the Market and apps with my Wi-Fi connection.

    I freaking LOVE this phone!

    Rarely have I been so excited about new tech, and I usually have some disappointment issues after I have it in-hand.... NOT the case with the EVO. It's passed my expectations even WITHOUT Sprint service!

    Radio Shack couldn't get my upgrade to go through, now I'm stuck with a 50 GC.

    Called Sprint, they said I had to buy from the store. Went to the store at 1130, 1145 walked out with my new EVO. In addition to the MIR I also got an account credit of $100 so I can't complain I suppose

    I showed up to my local Sprint store at 7:45 AM for the 8 AM opening and the doors were open with about 60 people already inside. Took me 2.5 hours, but so far it seems worth the wait! Love this thing! Its beautiful!!!

    After finding out that Best Buy was only giving out phones to people that preordered, I was forced to call around. I ended up finding a Radio Shack 2 miles from my house. Turns out they had all 4 of the phones that they were given left at 2:30pm. Took them 2 hrs to get it working with all the problems Sprint was having today. When I went back to pick it up at 5, they still had the other three left. Can't believe all the things I've been missing not having a smartphone. So far this phone is unbelievable!! I think come monday, I'll have a buddy at work running out to get one!!

    Wasn't even supposed to since I'm on the 2nd shipment at BB but luckily the BBM Manager was feeling pretty generous and let me and the missus get ours today.

    Good looking out bro. I appreciate.

    I got to Best Buy at about 8:35 for my 9:00 AM apointment. I sat out in the car and drank some coffee. At 8:55 I went up to the door. There were a couple of Geek Squad guys standing outside smoking. One of the guys said that we don't open until 10:00, you will have to come back. I said that I have a 9:00 apointment to buy a phone. He said we don't open till 10:00 AM (and said it a little rudely), you are wrong. I said, no you are wrong, my apoingtment is at 9:00. He said not possible, we don't open til 10:00. I said no, it is at 9:00, just get you manager. He disapeared into to the store. A minute later the mobile manager walks out and says come on it, we are waiting for you....

    Sucess at bestbuy with one small glitch. Went for my 9 am appt and out in 45 min with Pre changed to my husbands number. Got home and realized they activated to my spouses number on my evo (ergh) and called back and it took them 3 hours to fix due to sprint meltdown. Had to have Both phones off whole time. Well it least it was well charged. Playing since. I luv this phone more than i thought i would. Thanks to all the great people on the forum for tips on all things evo
