Best Buy billed me the day I paid for the phone (Early May) and I checked my account this AM and that payment was not on my account.
My pre-order status on the BB website says back-ordered as well. Spoke with a BB rep yest after work and they had no clue...no word...and didn't even know the phones left customs (and this was a supervisor I was speaking with).
My guess is we get ours after pre-order Sprint buyers get theirs. I am guessing Friday or Saturday the phones will come with the latest being next Monday.
Just my thoughts...
My guess is the earliest we will see them is this Friday. Reasoning is that Sprint is syaing pre-orders will arrive on or around the 24th and that being a Thursday. Friday being the start of the Memorial weekend, I would think they would want it available for sale on or during the weekend or they lose out on all those shoppers.
You may go to this link http://wwwapps.ups.com/WebTracking/track?loc=en_US&WBPM_lid=homepage/ct1.html_pnl_trk for UPS and in Shipping Reference put in your Sprint account number - Before the delay people were able to see order staging.
