Same deal with me...it all felt academic at some point. I asked how many people are ahead of me and the salesman said..."you're number 1". I had to clue them in on the whole $50 process, he had to go in the back to find a gift card. And people wonder why I hate going to a cell phone stores given how much I know about cell phones.

And yes...this was a corporate store.

I had basically the same experience, granted I stopped by the store less than an hour after the phone was announced. The salesman had to confirm they were taking preorders and then created the list. I then asked about the $50 gift card purchase. They said "we don't even have those" so don't worry about it, you're on the list so it doesn't matter. LOL

Same thing here. Guy had to dig around in his computer to see if they were allowed to take preorders. I was a little bummed that I had to get two gift cards to get two phones though. Looks like I'll be getting two car docks and an hdmi adapter, maybe a case too.

I did a preorder today at a Sprint store. The clerk had to ask his manager to see if they were taking preorders. He didn't know if there was an existing list, so he gave me a fresh sheet a of paper to put my name and number down on. Also did the whole $50 gift certificate thing. The guy thinks I'm probably the 2nd person to preorder, so I'll certainly get a phone when they're released.

Edit: I forgot to ask about what accessories they'd throw in for me. I assume a car charger is typically given for free. An HDMI cable would be nice to have. I'm going to email the clerk I talked to and ask.

I have yet to see a Sprint corporate store give anything away for free when buying a new phone from them. They bundle stuff to buy but that's it in my experience.

Im not gonna bother... with all the folks locked in with 3D and photon contracts im not really worried about not gettin one.

Exactly. I'll wait for Sprint premier early availability, and if there isn't one I'll get it online on release day. If they are sold out, no big deal, not the end of the world.

I understand what your saying , but for us few that were waiting to get this it is a big deal. being first means if they will call you first to set up your appointment. so if they open at 8am here on the east cost and have 3 sales people working that morning you will walk out the store first with it. I can then set it up post from it and take some pics to show off the camera with it b4 anyone on the west coast wakes up. :)
I am a Epic owner and as all EVO owners were waiting and excited for the 3D I feel the same for (taking in a deep breath) My Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch ... I hope you get yours and enjoy it. I am hoping for it to be released early also cause waiting is so freaking causing me sleepless nights just thinking about it... lol
