    Just an FYI for those who were wondering, phone takes about 2 hours to charge from dead (as in, it self-powered off lol) with the micro usb charger. I have a touchstone, so we'll take that for a test run when it dies again. Also, I've been using it the whole time it's been charging, so keep that in mind as well.

    As I prepared to go and camp out tonight... my friend got word at a closed Sprint Store that we could head to the Beverly Hills Launch Party without an invite... we went over and I got my Pre no problem... I will still be up all night playing with my Pre!

    Nice, jenkies! Picked one up about 8:30pm as well...Staff was very calm, very nice, took about 8 min total to be activated. The palm account setup is very short and painless. The store said they got 300 in total--200 for the release party and 100 for tomorrow morning. At 8:30 they had 71 left out of the 200... It's a big/popular store...they'll go -immediately- in the AM.

    Really like it so far, few minor things, and there is a bit of a learning curve simply because it's a new thing for me (us) but definitely -much- more positives than negatives.

    Hats off to the Sprint team at the store I got it for putting up with all the sleazy Hollywood types name-dropping, generally acting stupid, and taking full advantage of the vast quantities of alcohol there. But I'm not complaining at all- I was out of there in under 20 min. for the entire thing.

    Good luck everyone tomorrow

    Edit:

    Oh, the Touchstone is really cool, the matte back cover is much better looking as well. Just be careful inserting the mini-USB into the Touchstone- it caught an edge inside and almost broke...just FYI, use care when y'all set it up

    Crashed the LA party (At 11:10pm no less )...store rep said I would have to come in tomorrow because the system was "down," called in the manager and 15 minutes later... New Pre!!!

    I can't get my Exchange server in though...it does not like servers without SSL...

    Edit: I did want to mention that the store I was in moved almost 200 Pre's last night... They said the beat the other 9 stores in sales!

    I crash the LA party too! I totally walk right in like a rockstar. They said "Your name sir?" and I said "Perez" and they said "we dont have you on the list", and I said "there must be some mistake" and I pulled out my phone to get my "email" and they said "ok..." and just wrote my name down on this list! and the rest is history!

    oh by the way, I asked the rep how many units they think they sold that night and he said about 260!! He followed that up with "they have plenty more..."

    Just got home with mine. I'm charging the battery while coffee is brewing. I didn't have a Premier card for 25% off but I did have the Spring 09 Sprint Connection that was sent out. It mentioned getting 25% off on accessories. The Sprint rep said that would work. He walked away, came back a minute later and with a 50% off coupon and said he would give me that since I was his first customer at the store. Woo hoo.
    For all those getting their's later, might want to inquire about a 50% off coupon that the stores have. It's about the dimensions of a credit card.
    My store had 65 Pre's in stock. I was second in line when store opened, about 25 people behind me. The store is in Cary, NC at Crossroads Plaza.

    I got my Pre!!!! I will say it is better than I thought.
    There were about 10 people in line by 8. I was there at 6.
    No instant rebate and the touchstore was 70 not 50.
