    Hi all

    Longtime lurker here since I heard about the Treo 600 a couple of months back and I'm wondering if anybody has advice on whether to purchase via Sprint online or through one of their brick & mortar stores. Can you get any special deals from actually going into one of their stores or can you get a better deal from buying online.

    Also, I'll be waiting til after Nov 24 since I'm currently with ATT and need to keep the numbers. I'm not even sure if the number portability will be enabled for online purchases so this may all be moot.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    So it might be the same. However, I would probably go to the store due to the number portability issue.

    Me = Nokia 5170/Palm III > Kyocera 6035 > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 755p > Treo Pro > Palm Pre

    Wife = Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 755p > Palm Centro > Palm Pixi

    Thanks much for the info.

    I think I'm gonna drop by the Sprint store because of this number portability thing.

    Thanks.

    Has anybody actually negotiated a better deal by going into a Sprint store than what is advertised?
