    Nothing for me (yet)! Is your email something for cooperate business customers only?

    Me too. And let me clarify - I am not a current Sprint customer, nor a Premier member. Did any Sprint Premier folks get a different email?

    Everybody who signed up on Sprint is getting this email. Nothing to do with Premiere members. It's a free-for-all at 8 tomorrow.

    I just got the email too. Says I can pick one up at the store and that they open at 8 am!

    That's about it.

    Now here is the interesting bit:

    My town has 3 Sprint stores in it, all of which are non corporate. Two of them are in the mall, and of the two, I usual deal with the Sprint Kiosk. I know the guys working there, and one of them showed me on their computer that they have 21 phones coming. The other store in the mall, as well as the store that's not in the mall, both said that they won't have any Pres in stock on launch day and that they can only order one for me.

    In that Sprint email, it has a "Find a Sprint Store" function, and when I put in my zip code, the only store it found was the Kiosk that I deal with and who said that they will have 21 phones coming in!

    So...is that email together with the link to find a Sprint Store near you a reliable way of finding a store that's actually going to have phones on launch day? I mean, after all, it's just a kiosk, the other stores are way bigger! Just some food for thought, try it yourself!

    Just got mine...small disclaimer fine print "even though you are a premiere customer ; get your out of bed early because you need to sit in line...Yes even though you have been a loyal sprint customer for over 10 years. So dont ask!""

    WTF

    And I just called some more stores around here (Central CT), they are still opening up at 10am. Maybe I will swing by at 8 just to see, you never know...

    in the fine print it says you need to keep the phone activated for 30 days, so what if i want to return it? they give me back $199 instead of $299 i pay in the store? Does anyone know?

    my post was sarcasm, buy my email said "premiere", what nonsense...they need to stop hyping people up if premiere simply means a free ringtone each month..

    I got 2 emails of the one where it says the stores are opening at 8am. I've been calling the stores today and they say that they are opening at 10am, I don't get it.

    Maybe the 8am information is only supposed to be for peope who signed up to get notified. So "normal people" calling in are told 10am, and then the people that bothered to register for notification get told the special hours to give them an advantage or something...

    hooray! I got my email saying I can be "among the first" to buy this phone! hooray! among the first as in along with the other 1.7 million people across the country that are going to be in line for this phone. while supplies last.... of course!

    What you're saying might be true, I didn't mention anything of the email. Are every Sprint Corp. Store opening at 8am?

    I got my email, the 8AM nonstarter. It's anti-climactic to be sure, but I'm somehow oddly relieved because at least that's one loose end tied up. (No more paranoia about checking my SPAM filter every 15 minutes.)

    As a Sprint Premier customer I'll print it out and bring it with me so I can demand to sleep on the Premier section of sidewalk in front of the store tonight. At the very least I can ball it up and use it as a pillow.
