    A lot of those have quietly become affiliates over the past couple of years.

    I think you will be in for a rude surprise on June 6 morning when you find many of them start selling on June 5 evening to premier.

    My local Sprint store indicated that they were expected to work until Midnight on the 5th, and seemed to think that the working would mean the store would be open until Midnight. She indicated that she would hold phones for me if she could, once she found out how many units they would be getting in the store. So, we shall see.

    My roommate works for Best Buy and goes in before opening every Saturday. So I will have one reserved for whenever I decide to wake up! HAHA!

    Yeah, I called a couple of local best buys here in Chicago. One said they have no idea. The other said her manager told her they were only going to get 3!!!

    I really hope that Precentral and other websites post what the rundown is for the stores as we approach June 5/6.

    I generally don't have much faith in posts from new posters posting something they "got" form a sprint source.
    But I think it is very probable stores will be selling on June 5 afternoon/evening to Premier. This makes the most sense if inventory is very tight.

    Look to the Instinct release for guidance and stop ramming your heads into walls.

    FWIW - Just called my local Sprint corporate store and asked about whether they were having a Pre premiere party on June 5th. The associate said that they weren't having a party but would have extended hours the day before launch. She then said if you signed up on Sprint.com to be notified about the Pre, you will get an email from Sprint to come in and buy the Pre on June 5th, and you needed this email in hand to buy the phone on 6/5. I then asked if this was only a Premiere customer thing and she said no, it's open to everyone that signed up online. Hope this is true!

    That sounds pretty much in line with what I heard the other day and what I picked up today. No party in my town but extended hours on the 5th for early buying.

    Just called a corporate store on the north side of Chicago and they also said they would be selling Pre's on 6/5 to anyone who signed up to be notified through Sprint's website - said we should be getting an email from Sprint and we bring the email to the store in order to buy on 6/5. I verified that it was not just for Premier customers - she said it was open to anyone who signed up. I guess we'll see....

    Only time will tell if the "list" really works for me but I signed up on the store list about a month ago and when I went in this week to see if they could hold a phone for me until the 11th and that I was on "the list," the salesperson opened up a metal cabinet behind the desk and pulled out the list that had my (and others) name and phone number on it. So at least they really were keeping a list, adding to it and referring to it.

    I hope this turns out to be the case! This would make sense!

    Exactly... best customers with lowest churn is your ideal INITIAL market.

    So, I just called my local corperate Sprint Store and he said they ARE dtaying open late on the 5th and 6th. He said he was pretty sure the 5th was by invitation, but said to sign up at Sprint.com for the notification. I've done that...so far no invitation.

    I went to a Sprint store today to manage some things on my account, and they said "Yes, Premiere customers can pick it up on June 5th." That was really the only thing he knew though, and even at that he sorta hesitated. He said he'd know more next week.


    So I'll be there June 5th.

    I was told the same at my local Sprint store. (Glendale, AZ) Still haven't received my email!

    The whole Premier thing is nonsense in my opinion.
