    Almost impossible to get in touch with my local sprint stores (Ny checking in) but thought i would try calling sprint 800# and see what they had to say and the rep told me she has no knowledge of this so called, pre, "pre" releases and wanted the exact site i was given this knowledge from ... was transfered to telesales and telesales can not pre sell the phone until the 6th .... Guess i am going to have to take a ride to my sprint store later to see what is going on ...

    Was also told its possible that the infamous email will go out to Sprint premies only but how that would help anyone else wanting to get the pre on the following day makes no sense and in her words that would be no good for those who wanted the next day, there would be none left ...

    I found out been with sprint 6yrs and needed to be with sprint for 12yrs ... thought it was 10? ah well ....

    I just called a sprint store in my local area, Arizona. The one on Stapley isn't open on the 5th, and the one on Mcclintock and southern, isn't either. Spoke to both advocates.

    They said they just got a corporate email sent out that they are cancelling the whole pre-sale on the 5th.

    So from them, Officially it will be first sold on the 6th, 8am...

    Just FYI!

    Hmmm....

    CHICAGO, IL checking in. Anybody else from the Chi?

    Anyway, the LaSalle street store in the loop IS having a special launch party, but it's "private". Thing is, as of right now, nobody in the store knows anything about who's invited. They have led me to believe that they will let anyone in who arrives, and they are just assuming that the only people who know about the event are the ones who are invited. They said they are not in charge of inviting people and will not have any sort of list of attendees. So, as of right now, it would seem like anybody could hang out @ the store around 5 pm on June 5th and just waltz in like they were invited. Perhaps they'll get more details from eCare in the next 2 weeks, such as instructions to scan barcoded invites or a list of names, but that's my sleuthing update for now.

    For what it's worth, I'm a premiere member but haven't recieved any invite yet.

    Anybody from Chicago???

    Vegas popped up on the other thread listing the ten cities getting a 6/5 release. I called five stores around the southern end of town and only one had any idea of a 6/5 release. I'm wondering if its the same one on south Eastern...

    no point in calling stores becasue the plan is either in flux, or more likely, the plan is staying but they have decided counter knowledge about this with some careful misinformation.

    Dropped into my local Sprint store today to ask about the Premier Customer Launch Party dealy and ran into a guy who used to be my crew chief in the military after getting reacquainted it turns out that he is the regional manager. He said that there are only 10 of those parties and they are at "flagship" stores. Baltimore unfortunately is not one of them. He didn't know all of them off the top of his head but he thought that NY, LA, Chicago & Vegas were on the list. All the stores are closing early on the 5th though for new signage final training.

    LA has an event even earlier organized by Palm. I have a friend going. I don't know if Sprttn will hold one a few days later in LA on the 5th as well.

    Went to the Sprint store in Central NJ and was told they are not allowed to sell June 5th by order and Only the Flasgship stores will sell them on June 5th. Sucks. They wanted to but they were given orders after word leaked out of non flagships selling it on the night before and were specifivally ordered not to sell until 8m june 6th, Hoping that changes.
