HTC EVO 4G: Sprint Sold Out – Stock is coming?

Still hoping to pick up a HTC EVO 4G from Sprint this week? Well, it turns out that you can’t – Sprint has completely sold out of the device across the U.S. Surprised or not?

As reported from BGR, users who visit Sprint’s website looking to pick up America’s first 4G-capable handset will be greeted with the unfortunate message that stock has now sold out.

Sprint informs customers on their website to ‘check back later’, since more are on the way – but obviously there is no immediate timeframe on this.

For a device that has broken all sorts of sales records for Sprint after release, is this really a surprise to you? You may feel that Sprint should of anticipated this to happen, but rest assured – stock will be available soon.

Are you one who is desperately waiting for the phone to come back in stock? If so, let us know your thoughts on this. We’ll keep you updated.

I was very impressed with the Evo G4 and went to eth Sprint store to get one, out of stock nation wide he says, everyone says end of the month. So I bought an iPhone instead.

I called the waiting list was like 120 people and not guarantee that they will give me one by the end of the month. They get about 4 to 5 phones a week and not so cool. Called the 1888 sprint number and they dontk now either. I hope they get it soon since I hate the blackberry 8350i. Anyone know the time frame?

I have been with Sprint for over 11 years. They have clearity in my calls but the service and representatives are absolutely worthless! They OVER advertise, Over charge and under deliver. I can't get through to anywhone who can tell there ass from a hole in the ground. I guess I am fiannally going with someone else as a new carrier. THey offer me better savings to go to them new then Sprint will to keep me. Good bye and good riddens. By the way. Thanks for my long time number. I am taking it with me!

last i heard is that there is a AMOLED screens so they are waiting on Samsung to make these damn screens. There was a report filed that they let a few EVO's out with the old HTC Hero lcd screen and it didn't fly over so well, so i guess when Samsung makes more screens we will see more EVO's available.

I have been waiting for the phone for 3 weeks now, and still is waiting. I was just told that it is going to be a week to week basis on whether or not the phone will be in or not. I really want the phone even with all the flaws it may contain.

My boyfriend pre-ordered the HTC evo two weeks in advance and even paid bestbuy $50. On the day of the release, we were told it was all sold out. Pretty disappointing, I was lucky enough to get one when I ordered online at http://www.sprint.com. All we got is a $50 giftcard that probably won't be used for awhile.

One week ago I decided yes I do want an EVO. Several of my friends have android based phones and I enjoy using them. I knew sprint would be sold out for weeks so I called Best Buy. Online it said two stores in my area actually had stock. When I spoke to the lady on the phone I got a different, but not terrible, explanation. She said they did not have any in store but for only $11 i could expedite one and have it the next day. I was baffled and excited. I was planning on going in… Read more »

every SINGLE store ive contacted says they are out and dont know when it will b back in stock. also i realized that it is no longer on radio shacks website… could it be….. retailers are dropping the product because they dont want to frustrate their customers…… in the end it is only HTC's fault. Sprint orders the phones, then HTC ships them in bulk. A constant supply of the phones to providers means one of two things. 1. Sprint AND htc both underestimated the demand of the product and now are both to blame. 2. Sprint ordered a large… Read more »

Its a sales tactic, it broke sprint records by selling it and they didn't expect it to be so hot, Nintendo did the same thing with the wii. they only made so many and it became a high demand and now everyone has a Wii. I too am on the waiting list its disappointing but i didn't even expect to get the phone until i played with it, the New Iphone isn't anywhere near as fun, it allows you to edit videos and it has 7 hours of talk time, nothing special especially because its on the ATT Network. its… Read more »

bad business practices. not very forward thinking. stupid mistake on sprint's part. the retail guy said sprint under ordered because they didn't want to get stuck like they did with the pre's. but don't they understand? Sprint customers have been waiting since the iphone arrived for sprint to offer the same. and now that it's been developed, there aren't enough phones for their customers? yes, they will loose business big time. if i were the ceo, i'd fire myself and the whoever decided to under order. heads would roll. nevertheless, i'm still on order for the evo.

This is very upsetting. I went to Best Buy where I purchase all of my phones the same day the EVO came out and they were sold out. I was put on a list and told by the rep that they would be receiving a shipment sometime before the end of this week. Well I waited until yesterday to call and was told that it would be another week or so before any more came in. Later on that day I received a call around 630pm from the same rep telling me they just came in and if I wanted… Read more »

Not cool at all. I pre ordered the phone from radioshack and when i went to get it they said they were out and would get some in at the end of next week. So called best buy and they said they wouldn't get any in until the end of the month. If thats the case the new iphone will be out by then and since i already have a contract with att because of my wife's phone I might just go with the Iphone.

It's a great phone, but Sprint is also making people pay $10 more for 4G even if it doesn't exist in their area… they are really squeezing people… because… they can. This is the home run that Sprint needed, but they aren't handling it well. If they would drop the stupid extra $10 charge demand would double!!! This would blow away their competition. ISN'T that what they want? It's a small price to pay to sweep up market share. But I guess the geniuses at Sprint failed econ 101. Anyway, I can wait. Another month with my instinct will not… Read more »

Sprint’s CEO ought to stop making commercials and instead do his job and make sure his stores are adequately stocked. Beyond me why they would spend so much money advertising their 4G network and the EVO, only to get caught woefully short on inventory, especially considering that the iphone 4 will soon be on sale, not to mention the Verizon Incredible stocking back up.

Mike

Still waiting to get one. This looks like a great phone!

I am not happy. I am on the waiting list at a store. They are going to loose business to the new apple iphone. Not happy.
