He took my name and said that they expect more in the morning and will call me. We'll see.
    This is good news indeed.

    As for the comments about being a success... h**p://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=19374 I dunno. That sounds like they thought it was.

    I'm number 6 on the list at my local BBuy. I refuse to do another mail in rebate with Sprint. Please allow 6-8 months for your $100 to accrue enough interest to make it worth our wild to print you a check.

    That being said, can't wait for that magic call.

    I missed my chance to get a Pre at my local Best Buy last saturday. I guess I better start calling BB to get on a waiting list.

    Same story over here. I guess I'm number 46 on the list now. I went there (and a couple of other places) on Saturday. All sold out. I should've signed up for the waiting list right away, but I was sick and still am. Driving around for a Pre didn't help. snif.

    My local store in NJ got a bunch in today from UPS while I was there buying a travel Charger. I dont know how many. Guy behind the counter just said " Ahh we got more of the PRE in cool". I asked how they did and any returns . they sold all 30ish and 1 return for a glitch.

    My store (branded, non corp) is supposed to call me today to tell me when my preorder will be filled. If they don't, I might have to cancel and try the official one that is quite further away.

    Interesting that so many were sold out. I waited until Sunday and had no problem getting one. I guess some markets just got more units at launch.

    You won't wait long. All the returns that will be happening should create plenty of refurbished units.

    I got mine at Radio Shack. It's better there anyway. It's instant rebate, not mail in. $199+tax out the door.

    Careful, though. They are a reseller. Make sure they have the same return policy as Sprint. They might well have, but check before you buy.

    I just swung by my Sprint Store to get a Touchstone and their waiting list is over 100 people.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    I'm number 6 on the best buy waiting list. Stopped in the Sprint store less than 2 blocks away after leaving bbuy and I would have been number 85. To weight out who will get their shipments first. My guess would be Sprint but that damn $100 mail in...

    Stopped by my local Radio Shack. They said that they didn't have any, but their corporate email assured them that they'll have them in four to six weeks.

    Contacted the largest Best Buy in my area. They didn't have any, but would have them in "sometime", when pressed it was about two months, and no I could not be put on a waiting list.

    Have you tried non-corp Sprint stores? They are much more forthcoming with information and they also keep lists of people to contact once stock arrives.

    My non-corp hasn't gotten their first shipment yet! They are saying that they have no idea, its up to sprint to send them their order.

    Buyrihn and I had a lot of luck with non-corp stores. I'd just focus my search on non-corp stores as opposed to corps, i.e. call as many non-corp stores as possible.
