    I went to another corporate Sprint store today. They claimed pre-order was not available as did the previous store. The manager gave me her business card and told me to e-mail her and she would "put me on the list when she can and that I'll be the first to get the phone" ..

    What is this BS? Has anyone successfully pre-ordered at a Sprint store?
    My company has a corporate account with well over 100 smart phones. If we couldn't pre-order i don't think anybody can yet.

    I don't understand. It says right on Sprint's website you can pre-order buy purchasing a $50 gift card and be added to the waitlist.

    The Nexus S 4G has been upgraded to soon on Bestbuy.com. The estimated shipping arrival date is 5/1 - 5/6.

    I am not sure if this is an error, but it also gives me the option to add on the extra $10 "3g-4g" fee. I declined it and was still able to proceed to checkout.

    The Sprint store I went to let me. Although the sales Rep did need to ask the manager about it. I bought the $50 gift card and they gave me a confirmation number. They said I was the first one on the list.

    I just went to Bestbuy.com and went through the process to preorder. It listed the estimated arrival date as 4/06-4/09/11.

    Hmmm, I tried to follow the link, but it just took me back to Engadget's home page....yet all the other links that you back to an article.

    Maybe they're getting it for a review to compare it with T-mobile's version.

    Bestbuy.com was showing availability as early as tomorrow with express delivery a few minutes ago. It appears they have been updating the site so its constantly fluctuating.

    Now, I can't even add it to my cart. But I would expect it any day now.

    The anticipation is killing me. This whole engadget tweet thing makes me think they might know something we don't. Then again, they might have just been posting a random tweet with no new info, and then thought better of it.

    I just want an official date...

    If it comes out tomorrow that would be cool. BestBuy.com says Coming Soon on store pickup and shipping. Just like Teddy Brukshut said you can't add it to your cart.

    For what it's worth, I live chatted with a best buy rep. She she is expecting the phone to hit stores on the 20th, but it's not set in stone. Also, she recommended I preorder because she's been getting lots of interest already.

    Attaching a screenshot of the chat session so you can see exactly what she said.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, not yet an Android user. Why are you planning on rooting it? I thought the whole point of the Nexus was that you didn't have to root it. (I know, pure google, fast updates...)

    I'm sure people will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that people root their phones in order to be able to swap ROM's with ease or just install a whole new ROM. Plus with a rooted phone you have access to more system level processes and thus can do things like overclock the already speedy processor, install a whole new kernel providing overclocking itself and/or undervolting to preserve battery. Also, I'm sure people will try to manage to get free wifi or 4g tethering once they are rooted since sprint is making us pay for the hot spot feature.

    This is all off the top of my head. Others will chime in I'm sure.

    my upgrade is may 1st, but i asked a sprint rep and she said i can upgrade on the 18th of this month. on bestbuy's website, it says im eligible for an early upgrade. will best buy (in store) let me preorder the nexus s 4g (i really want one on launch day) because to preorder it, it requires that i renew my contract.

    sorry if that seems like a really stupid question.

    If you pre order in person at best buy it will do nothing to your contract. Only when you come pick up the phone on release day is when they will use your upgrade. All you do when you pre order in store is buy a $50 gift card that counts as a pre order and goes towards the final purchase price.

    looks like the 6th date was an error on Best Buy's website according to Phil's article. Looks like the last week of April...
