Any inside track as to when the pre-order will actually hit?

Sprint says they will "try to get it to us" on or before November 8th. But, is there any sense of the reality of when this will happen?

It would be nice to get it sooner, or at least sooner than those shopping in the stores.

according to this:
http://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop...SKUId=77800014

you can pre-order now.. It says they will do their best to get the device to you by November 8th, when it becomes available for everyone else.

I guess that depends on exactly how many ppl pre-order the device. I am assuming you were talking about the LG G2, yes?

Yes. I already ordered. I was hoping an extra benefit of them taking my money early might be to get the phone early. Also, I bought through Best Buy online, who are offering the same pre-order. Hoping this doesn't delay my receiving it.

I really couldn't say in regard to ordering through Best Buy. They buy their own inventory. It does not come from Sprint, but from the phone Manufacturer directly.

In general pre-ordering doesnt get you a device earlier, but will guarantee you get a device without having to wait for a re-order from the factory. Normally pre-orders are shipped to arrive in the hands of the buyers buy the day of the release. Occasionally one might arrive a day early, but that is more by accident than anything else.
