Why is this phone not in stores, and why do we know nothing beyond the fact that pre orders are filled?

The lack of information is beyond ridiculous. I want this phone, and I may wind up getting stuck with this horrible Nexus if nothing happens. If they had enough for the National launch and pre orders on the 18th, then why are they acting like all of a sudden they have no idea wtf is going on? And why does everyone on earth have this phone and not Sprint?

Unfortunetly it was a limited release due to all of the issues with Apple. For now just the people who pre-ordered and paid have gotten their new phones. And there is no official news on when they will be available publicly.

Just to clear one error in your post.  Only sprint.com and Best Buy got preorders to their customer everybody else are still waiting in the dark..

My point is still valid none-the-less, only pre-orders got filled. No official date for retail stores. I'd rather spend the money on the S3 (hopefully there will be an official announcement soon.

Take it with a grain of salt, but my local Best Buy told me to call back on Tuesday when they will be getting another shipment of phones.  Interesting part was that they said they already fullfilled all their pre-orders.  So could this possibly be launch or prep for soon-to-be launch?  *fingers crossed*

Wouldn't Sprint want to announce the launch days before the actual launch?  It's hard to imagine that they just walk into the store one day and say, "Read...set...LAUNCH!"  I would think they'd want some commercials, press releases, etc. beforehand.  Then again, I dunno as I've never watched them launch before.

If the pre-orders are filled then the phone is CLEARLY allowed in the U.S. so there's no reason that we shouldn't be able to go buy it at a store. This is garbage.
