    yeah like i said i think it would be absurd that dfw BBs wouldnt carry.. no reason why they wouldnt stock and sell pres.. people love their phones here in dfw.. and talk and drive and txt etc here too

    who knows how they chopped up those screen captures of the BB inventory... probably missed 300 BBs that are gunna carry them..

    sprint store on lamar and 38th in Austin said they will have 30 units. they also said they have a 17 person waiting list that they promised before they were told not to do so. they said they will honor the promise for 4 hrs on 6th.

    I am going to begin my contribution by collecting the Best Buy and Radio Shack locations that will have stock on launch day. And I've gotta say, where's the love for Houston? I haven't found any data showing h-town numbers so if you have them please post them up!

    I am in southeast Texas (near Beaumont).
    I know we can't believe anything we hear, but just to add...I talked to the guy at the local Best Buy the other day and he told me that they were only getting 10. He also said that ALL locations in San Antonio (Best Buy AND Sprint) were only getting 10 Pres per store. Now I think this has to be a crock, just doesn't make any sense. I'm sure he was yanking my chain, but IF and that's a BIG IF, it's true that really blows. If I don't own a Pre by noon on Saturday, someone's going DOWN.

    I just got a call from a non-corp store - Capitol Wireless - who I called by accident last week from the Sprint store locator online. The guy said he would put me on a list and call me when he found out what they were getting. Well, he just called and I have an appointment at 7:30 Saturday morning to get a Pre. Sweet - especially since Sprint does not open until 8:00 and Best Buy until 10:00!

    Tread carefully when planning your purchase destinations based on stock. Since the SKU's were released, I checked with a SW Austin Bestbuy, and verified they were getting 18 Pre's in person, which matched what was previously posted in the store listings. That was Monday. Today, that same store, checking the same SKU has 9 coming in. YMMV

    Seems to be a lot of Austinites in here. I think there are at least 6 of us on the forums.

    Alright, well finally I joined after lurking here for a while.
    I'm in College Station, and I have a friend over at a third party store (on Villa Maria-- for anyone that may be in CS), and the last i heard, that store was not selling any pre's to anyone except for people starting new lines of service. Nooone that was upgrading or resigning (for another 2 year contract) or anything else could get a pre from that store. You HAD to be starting a new line of service. This may have changed in the last few days, since it seems like everything has been changing, but that was the last I heard. I'm going to try and make it over to the corporate sprint store tomorrow and see if they will tell me anything.

    i called RS@ Hampton, and they will have it! They will open doors at 9am, the guy told me I can call them again Friday after 4pm to learn how many they will have. He wouldn't make a waiting list tho, I guess the corp has warned all the stores not to do it.

    I guess I will rush to them if sprintsore@oaklawn were to fail me.

    I think RS is a better option since it probably will has less traffic, compare to sprintstore or BB.

    looks like all radioshacks@DFW will have stock. nice.

    I'm in Nederland actually. I was going to head to BB in Beaumont, but I'm on SERO and I've read that they will have trouble converting me to an everything plus referral plan so I might go to Sprint @ Parkdale mall. There is a waiting list at the Port Arthur store with 9 names on it so far!
    I have read that you can update your plan via telesales the day before, then have no trouble picking up the pre at a BB or RS on launch day.
