    I think so, if it had been added to one of the longer threads I never would have seen it. After a certain point I stop reading them a they probably have nothing new to say and most likely have veered off to something unrelated.

    This still annoys me if they cancel. Another broken Sprint promise.

    Primarily because most of those threads are either way too long or fall off into completely irrelevant and off-topic discussions. Speaking of which...

    This has nothing to do with the launch parties, those are obviously still going on. This has everything to do with corporate stores that aren't having launch parties but were going to have 6 PM - midnight sales. I'm still going to show up, but it sounds like this really has been canceled because of people like us who broke news about it way before we were supposed to find out. Honestly, I can't blame them.

    What Sprint says "kinda" looks like a promise, but when you use the words, "such as", it does seem just like an example. I guess its really wording in their benefit!

    Really??? You can't blame them? They can't keep their plans under wraps and now we have to get our Premier privileges stripped? I am not one to claim they are "owed" anything, but I've spoken to several stores who told me I could come in Friday night to purchase the Pre in advance because I was a Premier customer.

    You are arguing semantics; we know what they were planning because we found out; it's bad business.

    I think I saw signs about the special hours last week at a store in downtown DC--Connecticut Ave near 18th St. This was after the store had closed for the day, though, and I haven't been back that way. As someone who hasn't been on Sprint before, I don't expect to go to a launch party.

    I went to a Foleo presentation when it was at central station in DC and they couldn't even get the internet to work on Foleos.
    Sounds like you mean Union Station. (I went both times they had Foleo events there.) And yes, there were Internet (WiFi) issues, though AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK $some$ $of$ $that$ $was$ $due$ $to$ $structural$ $issues$ $in$ $the$ $building$. $They$ $ended$ $up$ $using$ $tethered$ $Internet$ $with$ $the$ $available$ $Treos$ $and$ $had$ $limited$ $signal$ $on$ $them$.

    That said, I'm sure Jon Rubinstein has emphasized the importance of having this launch go smoothly--probably conferred with Dan Hesse and had him send something down the pike to all the store managers.

    I heard you can phone order them on th 5th. Anybody else hear that?

    I really don't want to stand in line on the 6th, but will do it if I have to.

    Is the Pre launching on the 5th or the 6th? Why does everyone keep talking about stores selling to anyone on the 5th? Sprint has said June 6th.

    There were rumors of Sprint stores opening back up at 6pm -12am on the 5th but that is not happening. It is still 8am on the 6th.

    You know, I'm amazed at human nature. I'm not saying this is the way things happened, but think of this:

    A company determines they can have a limited availability special release of a product. They figure they can handle, oh say 10 - 20 folks per store. So, they send out information about it. Some of those 20 folks per store posts the information on the internet, so now some stores are looking at the possibility of 200 or more at their store, where they still only have the ability to take care of 20 or so.

    Cancellation time.

    I'm gonna get mine on the 5th from the husband of an employee of a relative.

    We will meet in a dark alley. I will bring a bag of unmarked bills. I will be wearing my tin foil hat, so I will be safe from the mind probers.

    It will be filmed for the next sequel to the Bourne adventures - the Bourne Pre Ultimatum

    So don't even ask ...

    I was told from a Sprint store that Sprint would be sending out an email for the premier customers that had signed up on their website. That I would have to bring that email with me on the 5th between 6pm and 12am. They would have a limited amount of product to sell at that time.
