Wow ... Best Buy getting phones before Sprint online customers! I pre-ordered my EVO from Sprint.com on May 7 and I have yet to get a tracking number. LOL. Way to go Sprint.
Yeah, I think that is odd. I wonder if those BB stores are releasing phones without Sprint's knowledge. My phone is "Out for Delivery." I will get it today, but there are others that pre-ordered direct from Sprint within minutes of pre-order availability that still do not have tracking numbers. I would be PO'd!
Has anybody actually gotten their Evo 4G LTE from Best Buy today?! I jsut called my local store in Brentwood, TN, where I pre-ordered my phone, and they told me that they have the phones in stock, but could not start officially selling them until Sprint announces the official launch date which is unknown at this time.
