    My Treo650 from Vienna Channels (Treo Road Show purchase) will arrive in a few days. I'm a Verizon user, and need to open a Sprint Account.

    What do I need to do to get the big discount for purchasing a Sprint Treo650, and activating a new account ($150)?

    I also heard I could get a discount for being a Dept of Defense employee.

    My wife is interested in getting a Treo650 as well, but wants to wait to see how mine will work. Can we purchase a second one at Sprint, and add it to the first account and still get a discount? Or are we limited to getting it all at once?

    Thanks,

    I just went to the store. Told them I would be bringing over 3 accounts
    from Verizon. 1 treo650 and 2 regular mobile phones. They initially said
    they'd give me the treo for $399 and 2 very decent camera phones for
    free. No activation charges on any of the phones. Obviously, the 2-yr
    obligation. I was thinking it seemed ok, but I guess it didn't look like I
    was wow'ed by it, and the store manager came over and said they
    could do a lot better on the treo.. I bet they'd match TC's $319 deal.

    I'm still debating the switch. Technically, my 2-yr obligation with VZN
    isn't up until March 4.. so I have until then to decide. Seems like a
    decent deal. Tell them you're bringing the 2 accounts and ask what's
    the best deal they can give you. Tell them the 650 is starting to come
    out on other services, like cingular, att, and ??? verizon eventually???

    good luck
