    Waiting on my Pre to port over. Feels like eternity. The sprint store I went to only had 6, so I was lucky mine was reserved. I'd be pretty pissed if I was a current customer, all 6 phones were reserved for new customers. They told all the current customers to show up at 8 and just had them order phones, while I walked up and they handed mine over. Oh well, got mine!

    Got mine! I arrived at the store at 8:05 am...not a soul in sight. The door was still locked---I had to knock on the window to get the attention of the staff. Only one other person arrived while I was there. The joys of small town Kansas!

    Just got back from the Sprint store - sizable line, we were seventh and eighth of about 15-20 people that showed up (at 7:30, all the employees went out for a final smoke break, and the manager came out and told us that there were plenty of phones for everyone, which caused everyone to breathe a sigh of relief). The Sprint crew was really friendly and looked like they were having fun with the lunacy happening around them. Our sale got held up by an internet block on one of our phones that the rep had to call into sales support to get lifted, which took a good twenty to thirty minutes - I'm sure the call center was getting pounded.

    My dad and I each got a Pre and a Touchstone, we got the last two Touchstones in the store.

    Hey Everyone! Typing to you from my Pre! I was second in line at my Sprint store! Could've been first if I didn't go to get McDonald's. Good luck everyone!

    Got to my local Sprint dealer on South Broadway in Yonkers, NY at 7:20 am, even though store said it wouldn't open until 9. My infant son and I sat in the car in front of the store - no one was there - until just before 8:00 when the employees showed up. They opened up at just after 8 and I was the first to get my Pre. They said that they had 15-20 and had presold some. I thought presales were not permitted? Anyway - it's fabulous! Love it. Trying to figure out how I want to sync contacts. Listening to Pandora now. Already downloaded a bunch of apps (NYTimes, Accuweather, Tweed, Pandora). Go Palm! After 12 years I'm still a happy user.

    We got my wife's Pre at about 8:30am ET. We had to stand in line for a few minutes and wait on our favorite rep but, all in all, things went well.

    I've attached a picture of our 'line' at the local Speedway, IN Sprint Store.

    Thanks to my man Chris for hooking us up.

    Got to my Sprint store at about 5am and there were already 2 people there...just sitting in their cars so I got out with my chair and sat by the entrance thus making me numero uno in line! Our store at 22 Pre's and by 8am they were all spoken for but anyone who came shortly after 8 were guaranteed the next shipment as they arrived so even those folks shouldn't be waiting long....

    This phone is freaking incredible!

    Pretty much the same situation here, can't even turn it on yet!

    My rep totally hooked me up, great experience.

    Now just have to keep trying my old phone until it stops working and head back to the store to wrap things up.

    Bye bye Verizon!

    YAY - got me a Pre!

    Went to stand in line at 6:45 a.m. - there were 7 people in front of me, one had been there since 3:30 a.m. Line never got longer than about 30 people. It was very relaxed and the Sprint corporate store I went to was large and friendly.

    Had no issues with activation - just a minor issue with transferring my contacts from my old Samsung phone to the Pre. I'll figure it out though - I am so thrilled to have the Pre in hand!! And Sprint service works brilliantly in my apartment - even in the dead zones I had before with my Verizon phone.

    got it from Radioshack at Hampton@12th in Dallas, they have 9 in stock (now 8), no line, nice process.

    Man, if gizmodo think this phone looks "cheap, light", they must be blind.

    Its great!

    Posting this from the Pre! Got it at the San Francisco store on Mission St. Got there at 6:15 and were the first ones there. Five minutes later and the line started to form. About 25 people were in line by opening time. They only had 8 touchstones in stock_ so I'm glad we got there early.

    Was in line at 5am for the ONE phone that the local best buy had. I think everyone knew as the sprint store had about 20 people in front. All of the Best Buy mobile types were hovering around watching the activation, so far, fantastic, now if I can just get my contacts off of my Instinct!
