Probably still going to show up at like 6-6:30am Saturday.
    See you there! I'm going super early. If there's a line I'll get on here and let you know!

    Did anyone see the BB stock numbers posted over at everythingpre? Someone posted a download of all stores nationwide. Mayfair and Southridge look to have the most.
    Very cool you got to play with one at Mayfair.

    Added a poll. Everyone vote for which store you are going to. I made it multiple choice so if you are running to multiples you can vote for them. I was limited to 10 options so I put up 7 of the Sprint stores and 3 Best Buys.

    I don't know about all, but I know the New Berlin one is for sure. Called last night. I would call any of the ones you were looking at going to.

    Hey Guys & Gals-

    First post.... you were able to take me out of lurker status.

    I plan on hitting the bayshore store & if that one's crowded, hit the Green Bay Road one. My friend & I are planning on getting 3 (me, him & his fiance). We're all on the same account, so we may divide & conquer.

    Have any of you tried any of the non-corporate stores? I tried Universal wireless (south Howell ave) & the guy claimed they did not have a wait list, but he would "put them aside" for me. This was yesterday. He said to call back on friday & he should have more information.

    I did speak with someone at the Bayshore store and they didnt have much information. He also told me to call back on friday & they will have more info.

    So which store seems to have the most units?
  9. #49  
    I'll be hanging out early at the 108th St Store, but I put down National also since I'd probably check that one out if it turned out that I wasn't able to get it at the first store.

    We'll see what happens come Saturday morning. I don't know, it's really been a mixed bag so far. Some people think it will be crazy (they think so if you ask at the 108th street store anyway) and now Sprint is saying they don't expect there to be a frenzy on Saturday. I'm thinking we are the vocal minority in the Milwaukee area and I don't *think* there will be big lines, but I'm still going early just to be safe.

    Tried to register only to find I've already been a member for 42 weeks

    I'm close to Brookfield Square, so I'm gonna do a late night pass by the Bluemound Road location to look for a line. If nothing, I'm gonna come back at daybreak and see how things look.

    I think the stores may give us a better idea on number of units tomorrow. I tried calling yesterday & the common theme was "call back on friday".

    I remember looking at the Best Buy units from everythingpre & it looked like the Mayfair best buy may have the most (around 20).
  12. #52  
    I didn't realize the Mayfair Best Buy would have that many units. That's pretty decent actually. I already set my account up early at the 108th street store though so I'll be heading there to pick up the phones.

    I'm at work and can't download the PDFs. Anyone want to check what the stock levels are for the Best buys in our area?

    I think this is all the Best Buy stores in Wisconsin from the latest leaked pdf:

    Location | Avail On Hand (excludes open box) | Total On Hand | On Order | In Transit | Current Sell | Avg. Wk Unit Sales | Avg. Wks of Supply | Calc. Wks of Supply

    1192 - GRAFTON WI 2 2 0 0 $849.99 0 0 0

    Seems fishy. Not sure if this is complete. Would make more sense if each "unit" was a crate of 50 phones or something..

    Nah that sounds about right. Sprint has said they are going to have limited stock. And my guess would be is they want to sell the majority of the phones in their Sprint stores (then they make their profit off of accessory sales).

    So my understanding from above is that the Milwaukee Area Best Buys will have the following:

    Mayfair 8 on site, 10 in transit - 18 total
    Bluemound Plaza 3 on site, 1 in transit - 4 total
    Fox Point 2 on site, 2 in transit - 4 total
    Southridge 9 on site, 11 in transit - 20 total
    Northridge 2 on site, 2 in transit - 4 total
    Menomonee Falls 2 on site, 1 in transit - 3 total
    Grafton 2 on site, 2 in transit - 4 total
    Delafield 2 on site, 0 in transit - 2 total

    Total for Best Buy in Milwaukee is 30 on sites, 26 in transit & 56 total.

    Also, the in transit's were rumored to be there by saturday.
    Not bad for Best Buy considering the rumors of 4 per store.

    Sorry about doing the triple post thing... I just called Mayfair and got a little info (not much)

    They open at 9am.
    They dont know how many they'll be getting (he wouldnt confirm the 18)
    They wont do 1 year upgrades. Only 2 year upgrades or new customers. So if you are eligible for $75 as an existing customer, then dont go to Mayfair.
    Only 1 phone per person. Will not let you buy 3 if you have 3 lines.
    No waiting list. First come, First Serve.
