Samsung Epic 4G: Sprint Reserve Slots Gone – Did you get one?

For those of you who are still waiting in line for a Samsung Epic 4G handset from Sprint, we have some important news for you. It turns out that Sprint’s reservation slots for the device have already been taken.

As reported from Phandroid, Sprint’s website now states that they will no longer be taking any more names down to reserve the highly anticipated device, but did offer customers the option of signing up to be notified when the device is available to buy.

If you are still hoping to pick one up on the August 31st launch date, then you might have better luck heading to third party stores, The Shack, Best Buy and Amazon, as they will all be stocking the Epic 4G on that date too.

How many of you managed to reserve one directly with Sprint though? Consider yourself lucky if you did.

So how can someone tell me how can you be consider lucky if you reserved with Sprint if Best Buy and The Shack have the phone for 250 without rebates?
I think Sprint is the worst option so far because you have to wait for the mail in rebate.

I would advise you to wait before purchasing the epic or hold onto your receipt. Sprint and samsung are trying a little to hard to sell the phone. The Samsung Galaxy series has a GPS flaw, in that the GPS does not locate you. They tell you to reset the app to, but that only gives you your roundabout location from sprint and does not track when you move. Samsung promises a fix in September, but since this problem has been around from the end of April or sooner why haven't done anything. I can think of two reasons…1. The… Read more »

I'm a Sprint Premier Customer and had the chance to reserve mine on August 12th, the day before the general public. I'm really excited about this phone, hope it doesn't disappoint!!.

I Pre-ordered from Sprint the first day and then cancelled it after I pre-ordered from Best Buy. No need to deal with rebates (took over a month for my EVO $100 rebate) when I can get an immediate credit. Can't wait for the wife and I to try video chat.

I reserved at radio shack yesterday. There is no MIR to send in with them, the price is simply $250. You can probably still get the phone there too.

Then news of Sprint jumping from WiMax to LTE, IF they make the jump; how is this going to leave the Epic; being a Wimax phone and all?

Either way, I'll have mine on launch!!!

I reserved one as soon as I saw Sprint post it up so I can't wait to get my hands on this powerhouse! Anyway, I’ve spoken with representatives from Sprint, Radio Shack, and Best Buy. I was speaking with them about what phone I should get, the Htc Evo, or the Samsung Epic 4G. All 3 store representatives told me the same answer, while the HTC Evo has a better camera and is slightly larger, the Epic is a better phone and faster. So they all told me to go with the Epic. And I did. Do you think I… Read more »
