We have more good news if you've preordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE from Wirefly: contrary to fears that the third-party retailer was suffering from massive delays and wouldn't ship the device for weeks, customers who preordered the EVO through Wirefly are getting email messages that they can expect the device "soon."
Several G&E readers have forwarded the message to us, which appears in its entirety below. It says the EVO 4G LTE will soon be on its way to Wirefly, who will then hold shipments in its warehouse for no longer than one hour before they're shipped off to customers' waiting hands.
Wirefly hasn't promised a specific shipping date like Sprint did, but I'd imagine that you should expect to get your EVOs at the end of this week, or early next week at the latest.
Here's the email:
Thank you for ordering from Wirefly.com.
Great News! We learned overnight that US officials finally cleared the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE shipment and they will soon be on their way to Sprint and, of course, us.
We do not have a definitive delivery date yet, but weâ€™ve done this many times before and we can assure you that the phones will literally spend about 1 hour in our distribution facility before we ship them out the door.
To be fair to all of our customers, we are shipping the phones in the order in which the purchases were made. We will send you an email as soon as your device is ready to ship. If you wish to make any modifications to your order, now would be a good time to do so because when the phones arrive, weâ€™ll be heads-down working to get them out the door ASAP.
We are glad that Sprint, HTC, and the US Government were able to come to agreement because this is one incredible device and from everything weâ€™ve heard, worth the wait. Thanks again for shopping with us. We appreciate your business.
