I dunno what to do now - I liked the idea of saving $20 using that radio shack code but zero communication from them and an extremely poor website / order experience will have me check out best buy tomorrow. VM website says available 5/31 then when you click the "also available at these stores" it says 6/10. Don't remember if the radio shack site said anything but definitely didn't say 6/10
not sure why pre paid would get the short end - it seems the pre paid market has the best profit margins
Apple is constantly trying to sue every manufacturer. They're ridiculous.

So, it's after midnight eastern time, and still not available on the Virgin website. Will it be available today for online purchase?
just got an email from radio shack. phone is backordered and will ship when available... grr
It makes absolutely no sense, why the customs officials would block a phone, the HTC EVO V 4g aka HTC EV 3D they already cleared through customs last year. This phone should be out there today. I went to Best Buy last night and the guy hinted that they unloaded some phones. Hopefully, these are the EVO Vs. We will find out in 9 hours.
They never took your money. They authorized it. You probably were using a debit card. A normal credit card authorization does not come off the balance and just sits there in limbo. However an authorization to a debit card (cash account) will come out. It can sit pending for up to 10 days. The merchant never gets those funds that are just authorized, the merchants bank just puts it on hold. Usually the merchant within that 10 day time frame will ship the product and will close the "batch" on your transaction. If the charge does not close on the transaction it will expire and the funds are released to back you.
"HTC has completed the review process with US Customs and HTC devices have been released, as they are in compliance with the ITC’s ruling. Future shipments should continue to enter the US and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products."
i could see that easily applying to a big order from htc factories with a bunch of different phones getting tied up while they make sure they aren't illegal in the states.

I guess the hunt is on for the phone - just wish I held off changing my plan until end of June - feel like I gave away $10 to VM.
It is now on Best Buy for pre-order
Cant post a link but its there.
