    There are 2 Sprint stores within 10 miles of me (Uniontown, a suburb of Akron, Ohio), and they're 2 miles apart from each other with a Best Buy sandwiched in-between them... after standing in 5 and 6-hour lines respectively for the first 2 iPhones, I don't think I'll be repeating that for the Pre, but I will buzz by those stores and see if I can't get one on launch day without a lot of hassle...

    I'll be up bright and early around 5:30am to go wait at my local sprint store in Lithonia, Georgia. I like waiting for cool gadgets so it's no biggie. I'll throw a couple movies on the iPhone and be ok

    I am going to my local Sprint Store at 5pm on the 5th and see if they are going to sell early. If not, I will pull my reclining lawn chair out and proceed to wait until the sales start on the 6th. I am going to get 8 lines of new Pre's so I have to be there first.LOL

    I work 9am - 7pm...

    But I'm off that weekend and am not sure at all on lines... .I just want mine "in the bag" so to speak...

    What is reasonable if "all stores" open at 8am... how early are you guys gonna be there...

    I got 2 or 3 stores near me in central Jersey. Will try to get there alittle before they open. Can't compare this to iPhone launch because Sprint and Palm basically didn't advertise the Pre on TV yet. Also I do remember seeing people lined up on a cold morning in front of VZW store for the Storm. Now that's what I call a waste of time!

    What city do you live in out of curiosity? I'm close to Springfield too and was just wondering why you'd be driving their. No Sprint store in your town? That sucks.

    I plan to be at mine around 7 - 7:30AM and no earlier. Gotta be to work by 9:30AM. Hope I can get a hold of one.

    Seriously though, I'll be at the one in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. There is a Best Buy a block away in case I need it and I will probably get there an hour early, make sure there is no line, and then head over to Panera next door for breakfast so I can keep an eye out for any lines. If there is already a line when I get there then I'll just stick around while my gf goes to grab breakfast.

    Well I just spoke with Best Buy Mobile people in North Little Rock, AR. They informed me that they're getting 2 (TWO) Pre's on the 6th, which are already spoken for. They said they would have "plenty" in August.

    Then I went to the Sprint store in NLR. They were pretty helpful, but told me that I would most likely need to plan on bringing a lawn chair if I wanted to get one next weekend. She couldn't say how many units they would receive. She was fairly knowledgeable about the Pre itself, and answered my questions about moving from ATT.

    Luckily I have two stores within 5 minutes of each other. I plan to stop by 2-3 hours earlier. If there isn't a line (and somehow we've figured out the inventory levels by then), I'll just stay in my car, "liveblogging" from my netbook right here on this forum.

    That's insane if Sprint sets it up for people to have to wait hours in line for a cell phone. Very poor business!

    I'm in Los Angeles. I'm going to buy a round trip ticket to Indianapolis on the 5th to camp out over there at 5am on the 6th. Then I will have the Pre at least 3 hours before you guys on the west coast! MUUUAGAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    or maybe just wait at the pasadena store with some hot cocoa and mini chocolate donuts... I dunno. I'm gonna play it by ear.
