    Not a big fan of waiting in line and from what I hear, supplies will be VERY limited here in Colorado. Since there is no telesales, what will you do if they sell out? Ebay? Craigslist? Or wait a few months before the next wave hits stores? Rumor has it that after this first intial wave, we won't see the Pre in stores until July. Anyone hear that as well?

    Latest news is that Sprint will be shipping to their stores every day. Their stocks should be back up pretty quickly. Don't fret... just yet.

    The Best Buy numbers are an average. They're getting 4,000 Pre's in total and there are approximately 1,000 Best Buy stores. Many are not getting any Pre's at all, others will get more than four.

    My backup is to simply order one on Saturday if I get shutout. I'll just have to wait for Monday if that happens. At least that's what my rep said.

    Order one on Saturday or get one at the store next week. What other alternatives are there?

    I talked to a small contract Sprint store and he did say that if he sold out on Saturday, then he would Overnight a phone to me the next day...or maybe Monday. That sounds promising so I might go to his store on Saturday. Anyone else have a store promise that?

    That was my plan. I was going to do a "leave britney alone" type thing but in the form of "I want my Pre!"

    That's what I heard. Worst case seems to be to wait until Monday, provided you order on Saturday.

    I know there are at least 3 best Buys in/around San Antonio getting the Pre. The lowest any of the 3 has on order is 18. The highest is 32.

    I have no idea how many the Sprint Stores are getting.

    Cheers

    Hey Mike! A fellow San Antonian! I'm going to the DeZavala store. Not that I believe him, but the guy at BB at the Rim told me that NO STORE in San Antonio was getting more than 10 units..... BAH!
