    Just called the Sprint store here in Sioux City to make sure I was on the wait list... The good news is that I'm #1 on the list... the bad news is that the rep told me they had NO info on when the Pre was being released... Really?!?! Ridiculous!

    would sprint even send the pre to iowa? which such a limited supply, i think they would focus on bigger cities.

    just saying.

    And all of the Iowa scenes were filmed in California.

    listen, i know you Sprint/vzw/att retail employees don't get paid a lot and have people hassling you all day, but i don't care. when i talk to you, i want you to be helpful and happy - not miserable. i want you to be happy like you mean it. that's your JOB. i don't care what your problems are or if you're having a bad day. i don't care if you only make $7/hour and your baby momma is after you for more child support. if you choose to work in retail, be the best damn retail rep that you can be. and try to have a little knowlegde about what you're selling too. and try to show a little enthusiasm and pride in your work.

    your job is to be friendly and helpful. learn it. live it. love it.

    thank you.

    the waiting list idea is bogus. They will not honor any waiting lists

    FYI...even if there is a waiting list it's just to make you happy while they're talking to you...waiting lists don't count and will not be used...it's first come first served

    I'm from Des Moines IA, whichs store did you call, both of them I talked to deffinatelly know its available on the 6th and I was at one of the stores yesterday they had a huge Palm Pre banner saying available on June 6th. Also both stores here are having a launch party.

    I'm pretty sure the waiting lists are just sales reps making lists of people to call when they are available. I don't think any commissioned sales guy would turn down a sale in front of him to hold it for some random dude.

    Just sayin...

    What are you saying?! Since I live in Iowa and not a "bigger city" I don't get a Pre at launch?! I would be so upset with Sprint.

    Like I said, Sioux City. About 160 miles from Des Moines. Haven't recieved any invites to launch parties or anything....

    May have to switch my tactics and go to Best Buy....

    I wonder since the Sprint store here in town isn't a coorperate store if they aren't getting them prior to launch.... maybe thats why they don't know whats up...

    I actually have a friend who works for Sprint corporate and he said that due to lack of interest, they weren't even sending ANY Pres to Iowa. Sorry bud. Said alot of the Midwest has to order through Telesales.

    I would say your friend doesn't really know what he's talking about... hence dkotoric's post about launch in Des Moines.
