EVO 4G back in stock at Sprint; where to replace your bricked unit

EVO 4G back in stock at Sprint; where to replace your bricked unit
We have good news for those who so far have been unable to track down a EVO 4G. The nation's first 4G enabled handset is back in stock at Sprint. You might want to make a quick run down to your local store considering that every time the phone is in stock, it quickly gets sold out. The other piece of news is for those who already own the phone, but watched helplessly as a failed OTA upgrade turned the handset into a very expensive brick. If this unfortunate transformation happened to your EVO 4G, you need to run it over to a Sprint corporate store. Do not, and we repeat, do not throw the brick through the window no matter how strong the urge is to do this. The quickest way to find the nearest store to you is to go to this link and click on "Repair centers near me". This will give you the closest store that will be able to help you.

UPDATE You should return your EVO to the store it was purchased it at if your phone has been bricked, not necessarily a corporate repair center. Since all purchases are within 30 days at this point corporate stores are NOT able to handle exchanges from third parties such as Best Buy and Radio Shack. Furthermore, for those who purchased the phone through Sprint a trip to a repair center is not needed since any corporate store can process exchanges.

For those looking to purchase it the phone is back in stock online, but your results may vary at local stores as we've been told most retail outlets are still working through their wait list.

Could have fooled me? NONE of our corporate stores have ANY Evos in stock; in fact there so hard to get a hold of we had to stop the waiting list @ our location; so which corporate stores have them in stock? Because none of the stores in our region have them - in fact there are 150+ people on waiting lists for them.
