    I realize that I am adding to the rumor mill that is SMS and Sprint.
    But I took my treo in yesterday for a diagnostic test and to get it replaced. I asked the CSR when is SMS going to be rolled out. She told me that they recieved a email on the subject this morning and she gave it a once over and said SMS has been delayed ETA March.
    I don't know how reliable this is, I only am telling you exactly what she told me.
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    I work for Sprint, and its been posted on the corporate intranet that 2/15 is the launch date now. However all markets should be up and running prior to this date...

    Please address the Grandfather issue....
    "I don't know for sure" is a very vaild answer IMHO, so if you don't know, just say so.

    Thanks for putting your head in the pie throwing booth by saying you work for sprint, but it's nice to have someone on the inside here.

    Hasn't Sprint every heard of the oldest business principle of Underpromise and Over-deliver.

    They should just tell us its coming out Spring 2005 then anytime before that we will be happy and praise them for their genius in getting a product out before the launch date.

    Now they're just the GOAT.

    I'd be WAAAAYYYY less unhappy about this if Sprint hadn't broken TREO600SMS functionality in this pseudo-upgrade.

    I spoke with Sprint earlier and they informed me that sms was suppose to launch today nationwide but it was pulled.

    Currently there is no new launch date....per Sprint customer service.

    Of course yesterday I was told 2/3/04 was the day.

    And a couple of days before that....1/27/04 was the day.

    Wow.

    I wonder if the person at Sprint who is in charge of rolling out SMS has been fired yet?
    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    I called the Tyson's Corner DC Sprint Store to ask when the SMS service might become available and some customer rep answered rudely with an attitude with "It'll come soon". I hung up on her immediately. This company has some serious problems with customer service. This SMS delay is just another example of their incompetence.

    Their strategic technical folks know what they are selecting with their technology and phones, (normally except with the obvious SMS exclusion blunder) but they have some serious issues with customer service.

    It makes want to scream.

    Ofcourse, it's Feb. 3rd and its not available in the DC area. 1.1 update will not alleviate this, because the update simply helps the interface and not whether you can use SMS or not.

    DOWN with SPRINT!
