    Sprint may be sending out more email invites for other cities in the next week or so. and it appears that even some of the Sprint Store employees in major cities don't even know about the full details and locations of these parties yet. it's still early so we shall see.

    what do i think Sprint should do?

    send an email to ALL Sprint Premier customers inviting them to go June 5 to their local store and have a chance to buy the Pre 1 day early. maybe even have an online early reservation so you know one is there waiting for you. do i need drinks, appetizers, music, and D-List celebrities? no, i'll take my Pre and go party with my friends. but thank you, the thought is appreciated. we don't need parties everywhere - just let us go buy it early before everyone else.

    also maybe have a special link online and a special hotline for Premier customers allowing them to buy ~1 week early.

    this Premier "early buy" perk was promised. now they should DELIVER.

    thoughts?

    The local Sprint Store hear me is a fairly large one, well designed by the group that did The Apple Store and the redesign of The Gap. The guys there are all techies and phone guys so they're up on all the latest stuff. They ALL know all about the Pre. They follow every rumor site they can find and seemed about as pumped up as we are. Nice to see in an age where the reps in any mobile store tend to be about as clueless as is humanly possible.

    They are severely bummed that other stores they know have already received their single Pre for the designated rep and are on the list for Pre training. These guys near me are DYING to get into the game, but seem to have gotten in the slow lane as far as the Pre goes.

    They won't have a demo unit until the actual launch date. MAYBE the night before, but for now they're looking like they've been shut out until the last possible second. They were among the first to have the BlackBerry 8350i in this area. They had a working Treo Pro about a week before anyone else around here, and they thought they were on the cutting edge. Now they're walking around like Eore without his tail!

    This is similar to my latest experience. The Pre advocate at one of my local stores definitely has the Pre, but simply cannot show it to me until the day of the release. Bummer.

    Durham NC here. I'm premier and haven't heard anythung yet. Iknow Raleigh/Durham isn't a major city in terms of population but we are certainly the technology capital of the east coast (before anyone goes crazy about this claim, research it). Anyone else in the 919 know about early release?

    OK, the June 6 release date is really bad for me since I am on vacation out of the country from the 3rd through the 10th, so i went by one of the local stores I have been dealing with to see if they could set one aside for me to pick up on the 11th. They said no problem one would be put away for me. FWIW I have bought 4 phones from them and have a bill of about $200/month (before my new Credit Union discount of 25% I will be getting soon thanks to the threads on PreCentral --thanks!) and am in there a lot, and know the manager from years back when he bartended, so they know me pretty well.

    So far no big deal but then we got talking about the release date and such and here is what I was told.

    This store is going to find out how many Pres they will get on the 27th. That is also when the salesperson I was talking to was told she would get her Pre. She said (we will see if she comes through) that she would let me play with it when she gets it.

    Also said that the store was not closing early on the 5th (we are NOT near any of the cities that are having a pre party) rather they expected to get their Pres sometime the afternoon of the 5th and were planning to stay open until midnight and then open up early the next day. She knew of no restriction to only sell on the 5th to Premire Customers.

    Anybody else heard anything like that? She was certainly telling the truth as she believed it but there is always the chance she was given the wrong info OR that is what this particular store is planning right now only to get slapped down by Sprint if they find out that is what they are planning.


    UPDATE: From talking with others, going back to the Store and reading the other posts, it looks like my info was correct. The stores not doing official pre parties can, and in many cases are, going to be open late on the 5th selling the Pre. Still some conflicting info if have to be a Premiere customer, just on the web notification list or anybody.

    I spoke with the retail manager at the Sprint corporate store near me and he told me they were going to close early but work til midnight doing set-up. If this is the information he's been given and is up to date, I don't believe this Sprint corporate will have any sort of event for Sprint Premier customers. I'll have to check with him in the first week of June for a current update. Hopefully he can give me a hold on 2 Pres. As I WILL be going in that morning. Don't know of any other stores doing holds for general public, and all I've read is that the wait lists are bullocks. I hope I have an IN like it sounds like you do

    Didn't get to speak with the Pre Advocate at my store, but the Retail Manager said info on the phone was "hush hush" and that they couldn't turn theirs on til a certain date and that they had to keep it locked in their safe haha

    Perfect news. Those that do know about the Pre and plan on purchasing it, which I'll assume isn't many, hopefully won't know they can get it the day before official launch. Don't have to worry about them being sold out now.
