I am getting my phone from best buy because I have the buy back Protection deal where I am supposed to get $280 when I trade in my gs2. Has anyone heard about when they start pre orders? Also, I read online that the 32 gb version is exclusive to Web sales, hope that best buy will have them!

I'm on the fence myself as to who I should pre-order with, Sprint or BestBuy? I usually get my phones from BB but this time, I want to find out who will get it to me the quickest or how I can get it myself the quickest. I think price may be the same at both places.

To me the important part is getting the trade in money, I am stuck at best buy because of it.

They had their trade in values on display when I was in Best Buy Saturday evening. The ET4G only $86. Can get $200+ on eBay or Swappa. I'll be putting mine up for sale next week.

If you buy the buy back Protection program you get 50% of the best buy retail price for your phone (699) in my case for 6 months, 40% for up to 11 months. So I should get 280 for mine.

How much did you pay for the buy back program. I heard the 32gb was available online at Sprint only.

I just called Best Buy and according to them, they have nothing in their system yet. Seeing how they carry all 4 carriers, they have a busy day in store for them, that's for sure!

On a side note, I called Sprint with another question but also asked how much the full retail price would be. The guy went and looked it up and said $399 and $499! Is it true? Who knows, sure would be nice for us off contract people!

While I hope you're right, I can't imagine that the full retail price will be that low. My guess is it'll be 599 and 699.

I don't like "if/when". Best Buy Canada does pre orders, why not the US ones? Do the carriers want to sell them through their doors first before letting Best Buy have a crack at it? The Evo 4G LTE was available at Best Buy before it was at Sprint.

Hrmmm.. hope to hear some good news real soon!

When I bought my ET4G at Best Buy I was returning my Photon, I hounded them every couple of days about a preorder and they just never did one. I came in on Launch day and got an ET4G with no worries. Actually I got two, one for my father as well. I'm not to worried about getting a pre-order.

You could more than that selling it...if the phone is in good shape. I sold my skyrocket a few weeks ago for almost $400.

Just checked the best buy website again and it's down for updates. Wonder what that means.
