Backorder on Instinct...??

Well against my better judgement, I decided to order the Instinct ... BUT guess what ? it is backordered!... Knowing how Sprint works it might be months before I get my phone... In which case I will be leaving for another carrier.

Sorry to hear that. I ordered mine on Friday morning the re;ease date and received it on Monday morning.

They told me that the Instinct was backordered on Saturday, when I ordered mine. I got an email saying it was shipped out Monday. I have been tracking it since, and it IS on its way. Good luck. I have had success ordering from sprint and the phones usually come pretty quickly.

I bought mine from BestBuy for$129.99 (no mail-in rebate needed). I was in the 24th month of contract.

I am in the same boat with the backorder. But my brother got the phone so i got a few hours to play around with it. but it does give me so time to look around and see what other companies have on the market that is close or maybe even better then the instinct. But i am hoping i don't have to leave sprint because they have the best everything plan out there. beside Helio(I don't like their phones). So i feel you on that waiting for it and hopefully it will be shipped out in the next few days.

yeah i ordered yesterday and they said it was backordered, they said that it would take 2 weeks at the most but i hope not! i am soo eager to get this phone. Ive never owned a touchscreen phone before so this is a big leap for me. I hope ill like it 😃

try a local bestbuy store to see if they have any phones that you could get. you wont need the MIR.

i ordered mine on tuesday and received an email wednesday saying it was backordered. I called around and found stores locally that had a few left (they were getting more in the next couple days) so I cancelled my order through sprint and went to a sprint kiosk at the mall and purchased mine. Easier to find them at local stores than to get it online. Plus they call and get it all set up for you.

I walked into a Sprint Store in NJ and bought the phone on Friday June 20th. There didn't seem to be a problem then but I have heard that some stores sell out of there stock of like 7 or 8 phones in and around 2 hours..
