    So, i'm still on the waiting list.
    Anyone else?
    I thought these PRE's were shipping almost every day, but i'm sitting, and waiting.
    Anyone else know how often their stores in your area are getting stock?

    My Pre has a bad proximity sensor, so I am at the top of the waiting list for my local Sprint store for a replacement. I went in and reported the issue Tuesday evening.

    I called them up today, and he told me any day. He said, time wise, they plan to fulfill the entire waiting list within 1 week. I don't know how many people are on it, but if I had to guess maybe 1 or 2 dozen.

    Best Buy is not going to get more until the Sprint retail stores clear their backlog of orders. That's what I'm hearing anyway, from several Best Buy managers in New Jersey.

    I bit the bullet and got on a Sprint waiting list. They told me there were 80 in front of me, and it would be "about a week" before mine came in.

    The long wait for the refund check is a bite, but there doesn't seem to be any to be had at Best Buy and Radio Shack. Not in my area at least.

    I telephoned the Sprint store on 79th and Western in Chicago this morning inquiring about the phone. I was told by the young man that if I came into the store they would order one and if there remained any in stock I could pick it up Monday. I visited the store today to order the phone and was able to walk out with the phone.

    put myself on the waiting list at one of the sunnyvale ca stores on tuesday - ~60 ahead of me - checked back today and i'm about 25 away - the store agent said they got 20 yesterday and 10 today - she didn't know how many they will get tomorrow but said they should be getting them in every day. Called ~6 other stores, all had waiting lists still - one store in san mateo ca wouldn't even put me on the list.

    ALL CONCERNED: Radio Shack has Pres in via ship every other day, at least in NY. The only issue is it will cost $219 or $220. They mark it up $20 over Best Buy assuming you are an existing SPRINT customer with an upgrade. IF your a NEW Sprint customer, you can get it for $199.

    I'm just over 60 deep on the Sprint corp store waiting list and just 6 deep on a Best Buy waiting list. After six days I haven't heard a peep from Best Buy. I think they're not going to get anything until corp stores are taken care of.

    I asked the corp store folks how many they've been receiving per day and they said 8-10.

    Oh well... Good things come to those who wait. Right??

    I went on the wait list Monday, 6/8. There were 35 people ahead of me. I'm hoping to get a call today, maybe.
    On another Pre board it looked like the average wait was about 4-5 days. Places like GA & TX were getting stock pretty quick. I am in Southern NJ, hopefully we'll get some love from Sprint soon.

    My friend in NorCal just got his yesterday after being on the list. He said there's still a ton of people on the list, but I hope you get your Pre soon!
